Old Ellenville Cemetery
Hi Janet,

I have been photographing this cemetery, and noticed you have taken some photos yourself. Out of curiosity, what did you use to make the inscriptions pop out more?

Thank you,

RE: re Clara Eddy
I actually could have sworn I saw her grave but there are a few that have fallen and they are face down. I can't touch things like that for fear of hurting myself or the stone . It would be nice if the cemetery would do it but they don't.. Although this is a well taken care of cemetery

RE: John Byington
Actually, that was me that contacted you to change it to "half brother". Sarah does have a half brother named John, but she does not have a brother named John. The problem is that you are claiming that John is also buried in the cemetery, but that doesn't fit with other information. What sources led you to state that Sarah's brother is buried there?

John Byington
On the Memorial for Sarah Byington Budd (#52928924), you stated that "her brother John is also buried here". I looked through the online memorials and could not find a memorial for Sarah's brother. Do you have any more information about his burial? I've seen other online opinions that claim he died in New Cannon, Connecticut. I'd like to be able to locate the grave to see what further evidence it gives.

Mother of James Vail Gillett is Elizabeth Currey She married Ezekial Gillett on July 1 1824. On Ancestry the family has a photo of her Grave Stone.
Grahamsville, Sullivan, New York, USA
Buried: Grahamsville Rural Cemetery

The Cemetery stone States: Elizabeth Currey wife of Ezekial Gillett Born June 29 1806, Died: March 27 1867.
The Book of our family called: The Currey family in the Hudson Highlands, written by Philip F Horne states the same information.

Mary J. Styles Lowe
Hi Janet,
Do you know why Mary J. Styles Lowe's name is on the monument belonging to the Walker Family?

I have been trying to find the connection. I don't think Mary is buried in this lot according to the lot maps of the cemetery. Maybe you don't know, but thanks for posting her obit on her memorial page. That didn't answer any questions re the connection. Maybe she was just a good friend of George walker and his wife, Frances. His wife is buried elsewhere.

RE: Memorial 41677919
Hi Janet,

The following information will not be new to you, but I decided to send it anyway. It was written by Alta Cecil, a great granddaughter of Sarah Vernooy Bevier Gillett.


Nathan Vernooy Bevier b. February 11, 1798 in New York, d. July 23, 1885 in Illinois.

He married Sarah Anne Brannan (b. on December 24, 1825 and d. February 21, 1911, age 85) in December 1841 and moved to LaFayette, Stark County, Illinois in 1856.

His children were: John, Jane, Elizabeth, Abraham (Abram), and Nathan.

Abram's tombstone was found in LaFayette Cemetery and reads: "Abram N Bevier, Jan 2 1843 - Jan 5 1907 Co. A. 11th Ill. Vol. Cav. Elizabeth M Frail, his wife Nov 22 1851 - Dec. 1,1923.

Information gleaned from the letters written by Sarah Bevier Gillett mentions this family often. It is through these letters and the obituary saved by her that I could give the date of Nathan's death and the names of his children. The letters refer always to Nathan's wife as "Sarahann", spelled that way.

Hi Janet,
Thank you for creating this lovely memorial for my great great grandmother, Sarah Vernoy Gillett (41677919).

Will you consider transferring management of this memorial to me? I would like to edit a few small errors, add some information and photos and link Sarah's memorial to other family members.

Thank you for considering my request.

Memorial #50278585
Hi Janet, this memorial is my father's relative ( not exactly sure what generation, just heard about him ) and as I click on other family members he is linked to I notice that his parents Thomas B and Sallie have the last name spelled McMahan, and Kennedy's is McMahon, as was my father and my maiden name. I though just a simple typo, but the grave says McMahan and not McMahon. Any ideas on where I start looking for the answer to that? Little to no family is left, and I have validated that our family name was McMahon. I guess I am just confused. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Do you have a copy of William's birth record? If so, would you might sharing it with me?

I've ordered a book from on the Denman line and would be happy to share any revelations that come from it. Please feel free to contact me at to continue or conversation on the Denmans.

RE: Transfers

The two numbers for Frederick W and Margaret H Robertson are 54162257 and 54162287.

I see that you have a photo of C Kenneth Robertson's (and spouse) grave marker also. Can you tell me what the relation is of Kenneth to Frederick. I actually have some photos of Kenneth, from when he was a child, that were passed to me when Mary Robertson passed away.

Frederick W Robertson, Sr.
I noticed that you have created a memorial for my grandfather, Frederick W Robertson, Sr. I also created one, along with one for my grandmother, Margaret Harlin Robertson, as well as for his parent, children and their spouses. I was wondering whether you could transfer your site to me so that I can manage it.

Charlotte V HUMPHREY
Year of birth (1875) is erroneous.
She died in 1962, aged 79, making her birth in 1883. The 1900 Census effectively gives Aug 1883 for her.

With best regards
