RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 42337479
My Hugh McColl/McCall b. abt 1768 Scotland d. 1850's St Lawrence County, NY. So you can see the similarities. Lots of similarities in children names. I see his spouse was Jane McVean, I have a Jane McColl. I bet this is her.
Birth of Daughter: NOV 1806
Name: Jane McColl.
We have been unable to locate Grave in Michigan.
We are hoping in Mumford, I wrote historian in Caledonia, to see if Jane McColl-McCall & husband Dugald McCall were shipped from Michigan. We will see. Looks like we are related on Dugald's wife side. Yeah

RE: Giles Slocum Sr.
Hello crashkey,

I do not know why Giles would be buried in Northville NY and maybe he is not. The Slocum family was very successful and if Giles is buried there, perhaps it was to keep the family together
in one place upon their deaths. The estate memorial is the most impressive memorial in the cemetery. It is made from zinc and the interior is hollow. Each side of the memorial has a family genealogy written on it, so perhaps Gile's genealogy is on it, but he might not be buried there. I doubt the cemetery records would go back that far to verify that he was actually buried there. Perhaps the creator of the site might have more information for you, especially if they found the information in a burial record. I am only guessing about this, but I agree with you that it seems strange that his body would have been transported such a long distance, especially before the invention of embalming. Do you have any other information that would suggest that Giles is not buried in Northville?

Warmest Regards,

Edwin Sherwood

RE: Mary Miller Shue's death certificate
Sorry - I am not related to the Miller/Shue, but you have added gorgeous photos of both Charles & Mary. I was looking at death certificates for others in Bethlehem Stonepile and I found this one. Glad the parents names were of value. Debbie Hartman

RE: My error!
Well at this time, I have no idea. Do you recall when the message was sent originally? If it was in regard to Emma Springberg, I have corrected that information.
Thank you.

My error!
I am sorry - I acted too quickly. There are several similarities to this person and my grandmother. I erroneously entered her information over your relative. (A photo and maiden name which are incorrect). My grandparents were also originally from the Victory Twp. location in Mason Co., MI (Married near there, and lived there.)Let me know if I need to do anything - I'm new to Find A Grave inserts.
The similarities are spooky...
My apologies

Michael Danner
Hi! I hope this is the right Michael Danner. My husband has ancestor's at Bair Codorus Cemetery and I saw your photo request for him. I could not find him there but I was at Bair Mennonite Church on York Road in Hanover and saw the tombstone. I see your date of death was 1782. Hopefully this helps!!
Take Care, Laura Kessler Hershey

Re: David Mote
David Mote d1817 headstone is listed as unengraved in the "A walk in a country churchyard" written in 1880 by Luke Smith Mote. It is available on the internet. I followed the directions & description of the stone & came up with this one. I hope it is correct.

RE: Thank-you!!!
Your very welcome. Those Morgan stones were very cool, difficult to read but still very cool. The cemetery listings only stated Zenus Morgan, Mrs Morgan and Mrs Emily Hensey; so I looked them up to see who Emily was and to find a first name for Mrs Morgan. It looked like either Rebecca or Theresa, I couldnt really tell. Found a death record for Emily and said her folks were Zenus and Rebecca so figured that one out. Still not sure if Zenus is spelt Zenus or Zenas, stone looks like a U but could be an A, guess I will leave that up to you. Added pics to Rebeccas memorial and I added a memorial for Emily Morgan Hensey also, if you would like me to transfer it to you, just let me know. Glad I could help. Sharon

Dorcas and David Mote
There is a listing available on the cemetery's website westbranchcemetery that shows all of the headstones and provides a low res picture as well. There are quite a few Motes in this cemetery however there are also a lot of headstones that are either not legible or missing, hope you find what you are looking for on their site. I have been to this cemetery and the listing is very thorough.

Glad to help. The cemetery is only a few miles away and I took the opportunity to look for the gravestones before our big snow.

Glad I could help with Robert.
The only other Jolls (and I photographed the whole cemetery) is John, son of Robert and Experience died in 1719, age 14. That stone is intact and has beautiful carving on it. Let me know if you are interested or just put in a photo request and I will get it.

RE: Israel Woodward
No, I'm sorry...I don't write down anything from the stones as I usually photograph upwards of 1500 stones in a day. I enlarged and cropped the stone in hopes you could make it out better. I posted it on Isreals momorial. If you want I can E-Mail you the unedited version which is in far larger than "Find A Grave" allows you to post.

John Owen(s)
I fould this marker at Oakland Cem. and as far a I can read the stone, it is "John Owens A Soldier of the French & Revolutionary War born at Salisbury, Conn. Apr. 16, 1735 died at Carroll (?) NY Feb. 24, 1843 aged 107 years 10 m's. 8 days." This is a very interesting person, do you have more information on him? Best regards, Jon.
