I belong to the Mid-Hudson Library system. If you have a library card from your local library apparently you can use that to access online records for free, I.E.:,, etc.
I found out when I went down to visit Adriance Memorial Library on Market Street. I guess you have to be a resident of Poughkeepsie to use it.

Samuel Marcantonio
Hi Susan, I believe that you and my husband maybe cousins. My father-in-law was raised by Samuel and Sadie Marcantonio in his late adolescent years through high school. His name was Nicholas Francesco Marcantonio, son of Nicholas, grandson of Francesco. I would love to contact you in regards to the Marcantonio Family. Several years ago I spoke to Aunt Marni (Margaret, sister, of the above Samuel) and she told me that her grandfather's name was Saverio, that he was a bricklayer, and that his wife came over first, earned enough to pay his passage over. Her grandmother was Mary Sardonia. She told me they were Piercno, Potenza, Basilicata, Italy, of which there are many, many Marcantonio's living there still today. I remember meeting your father many years ago at your grandfather's funeral. My father-in-law always considered your father like a brother to him. He was especially very close to Lucille, who he always called 'Chicky'. When he came home from the war and found out she had died, he was devestated. I have her high school year book in which there is a memorial page. My husband and I just went to Millerton this past summer and I got a picture of Uncle Sam's and Aunt Sadie's gravestone. I would love to hear from you and reconnect the Marcantonio family. Thank you Mary Annn

RE: Daniel S. Ingraham
Yes I did thank you - it turns out I can access records at home using my library card and there online database. Still have not figured out how Daniel is related to my family? He is buried out with my great grand parents, so I am assuming he is family...

Hello - Was the Noah you are looking for a Deacon, and could he have been married to Charity Nash? If so, I think I found his marker. Let me know!

I was wondering you helped me out before with a census. I am looking for an 1860 Census for Daniel which I can't seem to get. He was born in 1846 in Pleasant Valley, and was living there in 1860. I think he may be family, I am hoping the census may give me more clues as to how.
Thank you as always for your assistance.

RE: Stephen Meeker 107815276 photo
Yes, the lack of stone doesn't give you much to look at. But the office people at this cemetery are wonderful. They look up whether or not there's a marker, and then mark exactly on the map where the burial is, so the photo should be pretty good as to his burial spot. Good luck with your research!

Hi Susan: I have a Thompson question and you are my expert. I'm entering some memorials into Saint Paul's Lutheran from an old Poucher listing I got from the internet. If you look at 120388593 & 120388646 they are supposed to be married. Obviously this is incorrect. Do you have any input?
Thanks, Jan Reasoner

Added by Janet Reasoner on Nov 16, 2013 7:54 AM

Susan, Thank you for all the memorials you have added. If you want I will take over any that you have added for Rundall, Rundal, Rundle or Rundel family. Thank you again, Donna Rundle

Thank you... that's so cool!

Requa Family
Hi Susan,

Someone "unearthed" the headstones in the Requa family plot. I've posted the photos to the memorials at Union Cemetery Sayville.

RE: Walker Adams memorial
You know, the more I think of it, I think I had built up in my head what it would look like from the description... but that back piece of the trough probably DOES weigh 6 tons, and there was probably a lion's head faucet/cover(?) over where the hole is on the back piece.

RE: Walker Adams memorial
Thank you so much, Susan! The pictures are lovely! And I'm really glad you weren't hit by a car. :)

It's so funny... it was originally reported in the newspaper articles that they voted to erect a granite fountain that would have a 6 ton piece of granite carved into the shape of a lion's head on the top as a memorial... the watering trough doesn't have QUITE the same effect, but it is still pretty awesome!

It is kind of a shame that it's full of leaves/weeds, though... it would be nice if it was repurposed as a planter with flowers.

Thank you so much for taking the pictures. :)

Philip Hart
Hello Susan,

Thank you so much for the tip about Fulton Postcards. OMG, you are right--what an amazing resource. I assume you already know about the newspaper collection at the Northern New York Library Network website: With your help, I was able to find the article on Philip. I would like to take up on your offer of switching Philip over to me on Findagrave.

Thanks a million for everything! How kind and helpful you have been.

Regards, Sherry

RE: Philip Hart
Hi Susan.

I am descended from Philip's brother, Jeremiah Hart.I am researching Philip and his family these days. I am working on a blogpost about him, and am wondering if I can have your permission to include the newspaper photo you have provided. Please advise.

If you are connected with the Harts, you might enjoy my family history blog, "My Descent into Descent": You can search for "Hart" and find all the posts which relate.

Again, thank you so much for the newspaper article and photo. These things are so precious. I tried to find the original online, but couldn't. Did you get it from a library?

You can email me directly at:

Cheers, Sherry

Second Kent Baptist Cemetery
Hi, Susan:

I have not checked each and every one of your entries that are noted as the Kent Cliffs Baptist Cemetery, but upon spot-checking several I can tell you that the cemetery you've labeled as such is the Second Kent Baptist Cemetery, located in Ludingtonville, Putnam County, New York. Kent Cliffs is not far away but it is a different place.

Re; # 74964724

'tis a good thing you do, you've got me FAR outnumbered in the sites you have, as I've only done 'several' to my memory.. I was digging for a far off relative and found your labeled connection between Cora and her WWII son James O. named as 'spouse'.. Not a good thing.
Actually, Cora and 1st husband Albert, who died in 1921 had 9, count 'em, NINE kids before he expired in 1921 and she remained a widow thru the war years and finally tied up with Mr. Ney and removal to Connecticut, although I've found nothing so far about Mr. Ney in the papers..
Frusticatin' business this..

RE: Hazel Murphy
I found an obit for her husband Charles W. Murphy and it listed him in Evergreen Cemetery also, so I am more inclined to believe the son may have moved them later?

RE: Found the Adams memorial
Awesome, thank you!

Yeah, that's the church where Walker's funeral was held. I added a copy of the funeral description and a drawing of his store that was in the paper to his memorial. I had found where they had installed a fountain/trough, but wasn't sure if that's where the plaque was or if it was different, and hadn't had a chance to check with Dad yet. I'm gonna wind up sponsoring his memorial to include all the pics I want, lol.

I wish I was able to find such plentiful information on everybody in the family, but I certainly wouldn't want it to be for the same reason!

Also, there is a William B Adams in the Adams plot where Walker is buried. I suspect it is Walker's son, but I can't say so with certainty yet because at least one of his brothers also had a son named William. (I'm guessing they both named their sons William in honor of their brother, William Augustus Adams, that died at 25). Anyway, once Im able to confirm the birth/death dates of the William on Find A Grave with one of their son's, I'll send you the links to connect him to his dad.

Thanks again for ALL your collaboration... I love Find A Grave, and the people it brings together. :)

RE: Adams, Bedford
Hi, Susan.

Thank you so much for the tip about Walker B Adams the Fulton History website.

Yes, indeed, my great great great uncle Walker Bennett Adams is one who was murdered at Bedford Station. In looking through newspapers clippings, I found where his two brothers, Miles and Timothy C, were involved in politics and scandal during the months leading up to the murder.

Miles was the Superintendent of the Poor, and Timothy was School Commissioner, both elected officials. Unfortunately, they were investigated for bilking money from Westchester County by buying things for the poor house (including from Walker's store), but deducting more money from the accounts than what the items actually cost, and pocketing the difference. From what I can tell, it was pretty much determined that Timothy was the mastermind, and Miles was duped into signing his approval onto things that Timothy presented without really understanding what was going on, nor profiting personally, though he did pay back most of the money to the county.

Anyway, it was very interesting to me that that drama was playing out in the public eye during the time frame leading up to the murder; I even found a notice in the paper about it 2 weeks before that night. It just makes me wonder if that might have played a part in what happened to Walker... might his store/post office have been targeted because the thieves felt justified in taking from a family that had taken from the community? Pure speculation, of course, but it does make me wonder if those events were connected.

Do you still live in that area? I would love to have a picture of the historic plaque that talks about the murder to add to Walker's memorial. Would you mind taking one? Either way, I would appreciate it if you would let me know.

Thank you so much,
Kami :)
