You're welcome, Robin. If I remember correctly, and I'm getting to the point where I don't always, Mr. Richmond lived about 3 doors down from us.

Robin, I knew Fran when I lived in Harrison. He bowled in our bowling league and used to work for Murton Oil - delivered heating oil to our house.

RE: Donald Pixley
I can try calling there, but I think the ultimate way to resolve this is going to be to consult death records, census for both places, etc. Try your local library. You may get lucky and find a helpful librarian who is familiar with genealogy and can walk you through how to work through this mess.
I suspect it's entirely possible these are two different men. Are your family names for the guy you are looking for the same as the ones on either burial?
What's written on the other tombstone? Is there a wife, etc.? Does another relative's obit help any? Can we rule anyone out?
Good luck

RE: Jared Fancher
You are so welcome, Robin.
I do still encourage you to contact the town offices and inquire of their records to see if it mentions a stone or not. I was only going according to the map on the website I listed under the photos on Find A Grave. Most likely you will find what I found, but you never know--stranger things have happened in genealogy research!
I'm glad I could at least save you the trip of looking for yourself!

Hi Robin,
You're welcome! It's so easy to make a mistake, or typo and I know I always appreciate it when someone lets me know. :)

RE: Rudolph A. Gludely
I just noticed the spelling here is Gludely, but the spelling on the stones is Gludey. Is Gludey correct?

Happy to be able to help. As you can see, I've not been very active either. Winter does that, it seems.

Ella and Herman Spalti
Hi Robin,

I have taken a photo of Ella and Herman's stone;
there is a common stone for both. I have tried to upload to Findagrave but I haven't had any success as it keeps timing out before it uploads. I'll be happy to forward it to you.

RE: Donald Pixley
I think we may be talking about two different people named Donald W Pixley. Note the tombstone on the grave in Maple Grove Cemetery, Horseheads, NY. Actually Find A Grave lists four Donald W Pixley's, and several other Donald Pixleys.

There are three people listed on the stone here in NY. The inscription reads:


Donald W

Joyce D

Daniel J
A Gentleman

The Spencer memorial notes that Donald W Pixley is the son of Gordon McKinley Pixley and Alice Shaw Pixley.

Do both of these sets of relatives fit the one you are researching? You can email me at Maybe we can brainstorm a bit and sort this out.

Hi Robin,
You are welcome for the photos of Alonzo & Lania Pierce.

Is there any one else that you are looking for in Franklinville's Mount Prospect Cemetery?

RE: Mary Linderman
Greetings Robin, This was my second attempt to locate this headstone. I live within 1 mile of this location. The plot for Mary is E29-4. I spent 15 minutes walking all over this area. I even looked at the older stones just to make 100% sure, I even had the Sexton with me. I can confirm there is no stone.

Did I make a mistake about Donald? I am sorry if I did.

Hi, I found Donald archer for you. There is an Archer main stone with several Archers, but he is some distance from this, and all alone in a sun-dappled grove. . I put up a view for you
He was a young man when he died. God bless him.

Hi, I think you must have the wrong person. I didn't volunteer to take a photo for you. I couldn't even find her to see what cemetery she's in. Sorry

RE: August Carsten
I did get August's marker to you. Next to him on the other side of the planter is "mother", Sarah Carsten. I can provide that if you like.

August Carsten request
While working at the History Center, I pulled out a newspaper and found his obit. I took a picture of it and posted it. Save it if you like or delete it from the memorial if you wish.

Added by Dennis on Jun 02, 2014 3:31 PM

August Charles Carsten
Hello again, Robin. I volunteer at the History Center and have cemetery records on file. I found August is actually buried in Traverse City's Oakwood Cemetery, Second Addition, Block 134, Lot 2 #9. The office will be closed by the time I leave here today but I will get over there and get a photo for you. It shows he has a marker. I was just there today getting some other photos for people.

Pleasant Valley Cemetery
I went this morning to find the cemetery and I seen the signs and I could see the cemetery from the road, but I couldn't find a way into the cemetery. Can you tell me how to get in? Thank you
