RE: Elizabeth McCoy Thomson

You're welcome, glad to help. :)

I noticed Schryver male with the middle name of McCoy in Napanee. Likely not connected to you, but thought I'd mention it. #29248793

Will get back to you re: Thomson in Napanee.

Elizabeth McCoy Thomson
Hi Fay,

We found Elizabeth! She is indeed with her husband at Newburgh. It was later in the day; the photograph didn't turn out well and is difficult to read... we'll get a better photo over the next several days.

Also, I've transferred the Hooper memorials to you.

Thomson at Newburgh
Hello again Fay,

I'm going to upload a photo to James' memorial which shows all four of the Thomson markers (which I recently uploaded) in one photograph. The bush in the center of the photo is where James' marker was located. You may wish to download it and then remove it from the memorial.

RE: Thomson at Newburgh
You're very welcome, Fay. :)

We didn't see a marker for Elizabeth McCoy Thomson, but the marker found for her husband James was broken and concealed by a berry-bearing bush. We didn't want to disturb things too much, but will take another peek around to see what can be carefully uncovered. Perhaps more can be seen once the foliage dies back in the autumn.

Yes, please feel free to use the photos. :)

I've added the Riverside Cemetery in Napanee to my list and will see what can be found for the Thomson families.

RE: Gandier at Newburgh
Hi Fay, I did find a Thompson but I don't know if it connects to you. I only found one stone. Yes you can add it to ancestry.

Hi Fay-

I added a different pic of the marker for our Jessie, after I cleaned the marker. Much easier to see the writing. I shall delete the older one, if you would like.

Hope all are well!

Carol Guental
My information for her cremation and then being sent to the Unity School came from the funeral home ledger. I see her husband's burial is shown at Floral Hills. Probably the only and best way to confirm either burial would be to contact each of the cemeteries. If I need to amend my memorial in any way, please let me know.

RE: Noyes-Knapp & Greenlay
You're welcome.

I did not see any stone for Mary Gardner.
Many of the headstones at this cemetery were not in good condition. One had been placed just leaning up against another. Some were broken and being covered over by dirt and grass clippings.

Greenlay Cemetery did not seem to be very well kept. A tree must have fallen into the cemetery and there were several piles of cut logs. The grass was quite high and some of the headstones had graffiti sprayed on them.

Family Otis at Compton
Some graves had duplicates name so I counted double for some. But that doesn't change any information other that it is not 14 records but total of 10 (individuals). Hope everything is clear now!:)

Family Otis at Compton
Hi again,

Your information is a match of St. James Anglican being the church just aside the compton cemetery. I have 5 more photos of 4 graves matching 14 names of the Otis. Although, maybe 5 or 6 people you mentioned are not in this cemetery perhaps one near Stanstead.

Some graves were hard to read so I used this link to double check :

Here is the 14 names matching the 5 photos :

Fulton, Jane, b. 1811, d. 6 Apr 1868, age: 57y 7m 10d, s/w & wife of Joseph B. Otis

Cogswell, Ruth C., b. 1802, d. 1839, s/w & wife of Joseph B. Otis

Nelson, Mary, b. 1852, d. 1931, s/w A.S. Otis

Otis, A. S., b. 1844, d. no date, s/w Mary Nelson
Otis, David, b. 1842, d. 6 May 1867, age: 25y 4m, son of Joseph B. & Ruth Otis
Otis, Horatio A., b. 1851, d. 1920
Otis, Joseph A., b. 1877, d. 1939, son of A. & M.
Otis, Joseph B., b. 1798, d. 19 Jul 1876
Otis, Mary Jane, b. 1855, d. 4 Jan 1874, age: 18y 5m, dau of Joseph B. & Ruth Otis

Otis, Ruth Eliza, b. 1847, d. 9 Apr 1868, age: 21y 2m 12d, dau of Joseph B. & Ruth Otis

When you will be done with adding the burials records, just write me back and I'll upload the photos ! :)

RE: Samuel Otis at Compton
My pleasure to have helped you. I appreciate your feedback. You are welcome to use the photo anywhere you want. Since I marked all of my photos, the credit line is not needed but up to you.

I have taken other photos in this cemetery from the Otis family that were close by Samuel Otis. I will share them too. :)

Shaker Cemetery
Yes, there is only one stone in the middle of the cemetery, which covers the 100+ burials. Apparently other Shaker cemeteries have done the same thing.

That is ok. I am also working with 2 girls that are thinking they are related and one has a bible from Canada.

RE: Fay
I just realized you had replied. I am on We are trying to sort out the Clelands and if they were both from Scotland and Ireland. I know my Clelands came to NY to Chicago to Muskegon. I am also working with a girl that has a Cleland Bible from Canada that mentions -""This other cousin thinks that older William might be Agnes's dad, and it also appears that Agnes had a younger brother named William Henery Cleland born 09/04/1853, exactly 9 months after Samuel Cleland was born. This information about the younger William came from an old Bible whose owner was William Cleland of New York. It had just the birth dates of Agnes and the younger William and the death date of Agnes.""
If you have any info on this that would help. My tree is Dixon Roberts Family Tree, and under the name kalexa31. I don't think it is under private or not.

RE: Morrow at Mount Lehman
Hi Fay

I put up photos of John and Elizabeth Craig and Isabel Robinson. They are on the big headstone on the same plot. I think they may be Mrs Morrow parents? I couldn't find that info though. Happy hunting

RE: Morrow at Mount Lehman
Your Welcome. I have photos of the Large Craig headstone. Hard to read so I am going to try adjusting contrast before I upload. I believe there is a connection with the names on the Craig headstone. Possibly parents? Should be up in a few days. Will add links if I find some.

McLeod Cemetery Names Plaques
If you need a name from Mcleod I've photographed them all and cropped them into sections and at a 5Mb (2948 X 1052) setting so they can be enlarged. This makes them between 1 to 1.51Mb files. but still small enough to email.
Ive also done similar thing for the Plaque Map which shows relative grave positions with names and burial numbers. The Name Plaques give a Map Reference # according to the location on the map which has 16 columns of about 9 graves in each section Rows are A-Q making a grid of 16 X 17. There are however quite a few errors but nothing like the old(pre-2012)Map & Names list had. The way this one is done makes it fairly easy to locate any grave except those few that are in error. I've posted about 370 photos doing two for each grave where there are inscriptions.
Someone has posted what appears to have been a "spreadsheet" with lots of inaccurate dating. Something I don't think should be allowed because it seems to be used as away to get large numbers quickly without doing any real research. but then it does get the names online...
Let me know the name if you'd like any.

RE: Carmichaels at Old Greenwood
No problem using the pics!! Was Daniel's wife named Eliza or Ruth??
I have pic of a stone that says Mother which was next to Daniel but hard to read. I think it says your comment confuses me.... I will look up John and Mabel Shaw as well as Mildred's husband (Muncaster)Do you know his first name?
