RE: Calvin Nichols, Troy
Hi Greg, I notice your request re Calvin Nichols was logged in 2012. Sorry it took so long. I just found it. Actually you have helped Oakwood too. Our website includes a list of known graves of Civil War soldiers and we did not have him on it! The list is currently being updated so it will be awhile but we'll get him on there. Thanks!
Heidi Norton Klinowski,
Friends of Oakwood Cemetery, Troy NY

Greg, Delora and all the Joiners of the Crown Point area would like to thank you for ALL your gracious work keeping the cemetery on the S. Moriah Rd clean this year and putting the American flag in there. This means so much to them as most have moved away and Delora and I come back every year to try and fix something there. You are a one of a kind person and we appreciate you very much. Janice Breeyear

RE: Louis N. Beaudry # 112639181
Thank You Greg,
Louis was married to my 3rd cousin Pearlie Rose Schermerhorn... Thank you for the links, I've added the book Historic records of the Fifth New York cavalry (1865) to his memorial and added that it was courtesy of you..
Thank you again.

I wondered how you were connected to him. I had a very old black and white photo, I thought it was taken in the old country. I was delighted to find a color copy from the US, since the dates weren't clear on mine and I doubted I'd ever make it Hungary! Thanks again. I look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Wescott/Westcott
Brothers - James WESTCOAT, Amaziah WESCOAT & Louis WESCOATT (surnames) are spelled differently on their headstones even though they are all in the same cemetery and lived in the same small town of Geneva, PA.

The spelling of the Wescott family surname varies widely even among SPOUSES (laying beside each other) and also Wescott SIBLINGS who are ALL buried in the exact same cemetery.

My Mom's maiden name is Wescott, but her ancestors' surnames are Westcott, Wescoatt, Westcoat, etc. So who knows for certain??

Bishops South Moriah
Great job on the pics for the Bishop Family in South Moriah. If only we knew what had been on that empty stone base. Mary D. died in 1875 and Emily died in 1890. That would fit right in. thanks again for all of your time. Chuck

RE: Hagars: Memorial#s 46647281 & 46639590

Thank you!

RE: Charles A. Spaulding
Thank you Greg. In all fairness, I think the memorial site #56390549 is incorrect. Charles A. Spaulding is my father and his birthdate is Sept. 31, 1931 as listed and his parents are the two memorial sites you listed. However my father is very much alive and did not pass on June 12, 1932 at the memorial listed. He did have a younger brother that passed before he was born and I was hoping that this may have been his brother's grave site as no one seems to know where he was buried or what his name was. According to my Dad "no one talked about him." Appreciate your efforts...thank you!

Greg, wow! You've been hard at work for Find A Grave and those of us requesting photos of ancestors! Thank you for the great shots of Jonathan & Sobriety Norris' graves in the Spear Cemetery. Is it okay with you to add them to their spots on my family tree? Your name will remain as the photo will just be a link to their Find A Grave profile page. Again, I greatly appreciate you fine work! Take care, Laurie

RE: Amos Davis
Thank you so much! It looked like a pretty impressive monument so I thought there might be more inscriptions on the other 3 sides.
I'm a Find A Grave volunteer here in my area of Franklin Co. but have not been able to do much this year due to a serious family member's illness. I do enjoy filling people's requests and adding other memorials to the Find A Grave registry in the hopes that some family member out there may be searching for them.
Again, thank you, Laurie

Hungarian grace stone kodmon
You don't know how much it means to our family to see the gravestone of baby Kodmon. The mother of Laszlo never had any other children. She was a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews. In fact they never knew auntie had a baby boy and one that died. Thank you for taking the time to take pictures. They are well done. Hugs from family in Georgia to Laszlo Kodmon.

Hi, I have collected many Civil War pictures over the years as a hobby and came across one with "Josep Furniss" on the back. After some crosschecking, I am fairly certain it goes with 94462898 but would like your opinion. I will be happy to send you scans of front and back.

Erastus J. Colvin, Stonecutter

Another E. J. Colvin stone [Memorial #79139760].

I've been working Essex County newspapers for another branch of the Colvin family tree that settled there. Every once in a while I try Erastus [in varying search terms].

Unfortunately, no luck with Erastus' date/place of death or burial site, but I have found names of some soldiers for whom he engraved headstones. You probably have them all but, if you'd like the list, let me know.

RE: Cousin Esick B Colvin # 67614170
The last mention I've found to "Erastus J. Colvin, stonecutter, Moriah" is on a list of men examined and "allowed" by the Committee on Grand Jury [in a report to "Honorable Board of Supervisors"] published in "The Sentinel" [Ticonderoga, Essex Co., NY], Thursday, 27 Jan 1910. This seems to be part of the previous year's report to County Board of Supervisors [on Northern New York Historical Newspapers site, it's often difficult to follow articles which jump from one page to the next].

This reference would put Erastus' DOD between 1909 and 1910 when the census was taken in April. No death notice or obit for him found; unfortunately, not all issues are available on the site.

RE: Duplicate Joseph Champines
oh swell. I will be calling the town hall next week and see what information I can obtain.

Thank you for your help.

My listings in Union cemetery are all from a transcription, there have been date errors which are easily corrected but a couple of people listed were actually in the Catholic cemetery.

Take care.

Sherman Cemetery
We recently went to Moriah, Essex, New York
looking for Mill Brook Cemetery (also in the past known as Crowfoot Pond Cemetery) and took pictures and added to their memorials. For almost all of who you have in Sherman Cemetery pictures taken in 2012. We only had time to go to Mill Brook and Spear Cemetery. We took pictures at both of these Cemeteries. Trying to understand whey you have them Sherman Cemetery.

Only one related to my husband's family (Sprague) and that is Napoleon B. Jordan and he married a Sprague. It will be confusing to have duplicates and in the wrong cemetery.

Hey Greg, Superb job in locating and adding headstone photos for PFC John Babich, a WW2 hero.
You're a good man for taking the time to tidy up the headstone, and your photography is top notch, many thanks!
