Joanna Ogden Crane
Hello again, Christine!

You may want to edit the birthplace section of Joanna's memorial page, as "Williamsville, NJ" (present day Vernon, Sussex County, NJ) is some 50 miles distant from Orange, Essex County, NJ, where Joanna & Isaac Crane evidently made their home. Although I'm familiar with defunct placenames for locations in Essex, I've never seen any reference to a "Williamsville". As it is, Vernon is at least an hour's drive by car from Essex. Colonial era travellers on horseback or in wagons would not only have had distance to contend with, but the mountainous terrain of western/northwestern NJ as well. It would be interesting to discover how this couple met.

Best regards,

Re: "Williamsville", NJ

This is a defunct placename for a section of the ski-resort town of Vernon, Sussex County, in the northwestern corner of NJ. An old, nearly forgotten burial ground called the Moshure-Williamsville Cemetery is located in Vernon, as was the Williams Mine. There's also an Ogdensburg in Sussex County, named after Robert Ogden II, who moved to the area from his native Elizabeth, NJ, during the Revolutionary War (1775-1783). I don't know if other members of the Ogden family had already settled there, prompting his choice, or if this sheds any light on Joanna's birthplace being given as "Williamsville", NJ, a quarter of a century earlier.

Best regards,

I'm confused. Rachel has a memorial with gravestone photos in Forest Friends Meeting Cemetery, Forest Hill, Harford Co., Md. Your memorial has more information but the other has actual photos. Please check this out. Thanks.

Hi Christine:

Yes, I'd love to have a digital image of Mrs. Snow's book. If it isn't too much trouble could you please also give me images of the cover page, and copyright page if it exists? If not, any information you can give me regarding date and place of where it was written and where it is archived. I've undertaken to research all the 1300 people buried in Tyringham Cemetery for the town historical commission. I'm creating a set of books for their town archives, and will turn that into a web archive that can be distributed on dvd.

Mark Wing and Annette Tucker created most of the memorials in Tyringham Cemetery, but I now have management of most of them and am slowly fleshing them out with the results of my research. I inserted the links you have seen. The formula is this:

a href=" 101574338">Henrietta Sophia Cargill
in which "101574338" is the memorial number and "Henrietta Sophia Cargill" is the name as you want it to appear in the link.

Emil Sturzenegger
I can't find him in the California Death Index, but of course they might have completely garbled his name somehow. I will put him on the list to get a marker picture the next time I am in Whispering Pines.

Thanks for the memorial numbers. I will see if I can find when and where Emil died and get that information to you.

Kuchemann & Meller
Hi, my interest is more in the Meller family that is posted (that married into the Kuchemann family). I am wondering what, if any, the relationship is with the Mathias Meller, born about 1843, in Prussia (but spent time in Galena), and the Galena Mellers. This does not appear to be Mathias Jr. but another Mathias who went to Oregon and died relatively young. Am wondering if he was a nephew of Mathias Sr. (and whether Mathias Sr. had a brother name John (Johann, Joachim?). Any thoughts?

Sturzeneggers Forest Lawn Glendale
Hi Christine,

I use Excel a lot but for Forest Lawn I have a 650,000 record Microsoft Access database that was created combining records from the Forest Lawn website with information from the California Death Index and Social Security Death Index. Now it is being supplemented by information from fellow gravers and from ground readings I am doing.

Sturzeneggers Forest Lawn Glendale
Hi Christine,

Just transferred June and A. John to you. My upload was not complete, I only put in people I could automatically match against death indexes. There are several other Sturzeneggers there who don't have memorials, as follows:

Emil - Whispering Pines 975 1 (no date, probably died before 1935)
Eliza - WP 975 2 died 1937
Alice - WP 975 5 died 1967

If you do add memorials for them could you message me with the memorial numbers so I can update my database? Thanks!

Matilda Smith--Walkill Cemetery, Goshen, NY
Thank you for your posts to Find-A-Grave, the Walkill Cemetery in Goshen, NY, in particular. I am interested in Matilda Smith, wife of Stephen. There were two Matildas of about the same age married to two different Stephen Smiths, who were about 20 years different in age. Do you have information on the Stephen Smith your Matilda was married to?

Thank you,

I am only indirectly related: her grandfather was my gggrandfather's step-brother and I am following these step-siblings. If you transfer, I will take care of it, but I also fine just sending you information as I find it.
