Crummey Family
Thanks so very much for all the photos on this family. I have been searching for this family for years. This is my girls family, my ex-husband's father's mother's family. What a thrill they will have when I tell them I found the Crummey family in New York!

Thanks for all that you done! You are blessed!

Thank you and the girls from your former troop for reclaiming this cemetery! We had searched for this cemetery once on a family trip. We were not able to find it and assumed it had been plowed under years ago. What a happy surprise to find that total strangers cared enough to restore it. :-)

On behalf of Dan, thank you for all the transfers.

Thank you so much for posting this cemetery. Thank you also for helping preserve it. Many generations of my family is buried here. Do you have any additional information regarding the cemetery and the people who currently own it?

Again thank you. I'm so happy that the cemetery was preserved.

RE: Anton Hertcorn
You're welcome. I'll have to look for more to remove the ads from. I love Find A Grave and would love to keep it in the "free zone"! It's a great site and so exciting to find a long lost ancestor.
Thanks for all you do,

Transfer- Friebel
Hi Lydia,

I forgot to ask you to transfer the great grand parent's. Charles Friebel #65031914 and Natalie Geyer Friebel #65031875. The information that you put down was very helpful in my research and brought people together. I will not take that info off. It is very important for future generations!

Thank you, Annette #47901904

I just want to thank you both so much for taking the time do take care of my ancestors. I live in south jersey, if not, I would be right there with you.
All of the Knaufs are my ancestors in some way, but John and Margareta are my great great grandparents. Thank you again for all of your hard work.

Ah, "Records, 1850-2004; bulk, 1850-1948". They have a number of cemetery records or transcriptions in their catalog, I saw. Did you get my February 11 e-mail with the list of Schifferdeckers in one of St. Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church's old books? I don't think there's any in their cemetery, though, unless perhaps one interred under a married name.

Thank you for linking Lorelo to his parents. Yes, I am related. Lorelo was a brother to great-great grandfather Eben Cook.

Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I know it is hard to devote all your time to this. I have dreams of doing it in my retirement if I can still walk!

Do you mind if I use your photo in my research for the Bergers in Albany cemetery? My mother-in-law went every year when she came up from Florida and I don't think she even found the stones for her grandparents. (William and Josephine Weiss Berger)

Evang. P. Cem. Plot Plan?
"Evangelical Protestant Cemetery Plot Plan 1879-1986"

Is that the record you have?

Added by tofftroy on Jan 31, 2013 11:48 PM

Thanks - I'm not related to any AFAIK. I was trying to figure out who Julia Schifferdecker's relatives are, a woman buried in Beth Emeth Cemetery in Loudonville. Brian J. Schifferdecker (#47326733) here's related to some of them, of course.

If you could use help in cemetery cleanup, I'm unemployed for the time being, so I have a lot of available time. Did the congregation OK the cleanup? I'd had another that was concerned about liability and insurance.

Thank you for posting her gravestone photo. It is much better now without the chalk.

Kind regards,

I do have Waterman family in my family they are linked to Rice family. But I will transfer them to you because they are distance members.

I am glad to do so. Erlene

RE: Philip Monrain #72923309
Hi Lydia, Philip Monrian is my 3rd great grandfather -Margaret Belle Monrian -Michael Robert Mansion -Michael Francis Mansion(my grandfather). The spelling error on find-a-grave was just a typo. It has been corrected, so thank you. Also thank you for cleaning up the stone. I was visiting family in Albany, and made an unexpected visit to OLOA, unprepared to find it covered. Could you make out the script on the stone? Looks pretty worn. Would you happen to know where Anna Koelzer is buried?
I have a branch of Monrian's in Glens Falls, NY, but I have not made the connection to the Albany clan. Philip John Monrian b:1872 d: 1944. Do you know who his father was, or his relation to our Philip Monrian?
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much, Lydia, for all the wonderful work you have done and continue to do at this cemetery. I appreciate the "Ruhl" transfers and have now linked them to one another. And thank you for your commitment to getting all the graves in this cemetery recorded. You've been a big help in so many ways!

Ruhl photos
Thanks, Lydia, for the photo of Christian and Christina Ruhl. There had been one floating around the Internet several years ago, but since I hadn't taken it, couldn't post it. I have personal information I'd like to have included for both of them and will send it to you as time permits.

Hi Lydia,

Thank you for your reply. Now I know there is nothing further I can find at this location. Thanks for all the work you did on this cemetery, it has been very helpful to my family tree!

Best wishes,

Thanks for the photo for Hiram's headstone. I find this Methodist Stump Church Cemetery very interesting, because some of my relatives are buried here. I have others in the cemetery I suspect as mine, but have not proven thus far. Almost everyone buried here is some relation to the others, even though it is not a family cemetery.

Thanks for the photo for Lucinda. I wasn't certain whether all the graves had been photographed at that cemetery. Just shows some were overlooked. Much appreciated.
