RE: Clifford M Specht
I love the photo you posted of your dad. He looks like such a nice man. My favorite photo of my dad is on his riding lawn mower taking care of his lawn. Before he died I took him with me to get manis and pedis and he was so embarrassed. I got such a kick out of seeing him with his feet soaking in pretty blue bubbles and being pampered. He always took care of everyone else and would never think to get a manicure or pedicure. I had to drag him into "that lady place" as he called it, and now it's one of my fondest memories of something we did together.

Patrick Arthur Teater Sr.
Nehemiah Jones
For information on people in New York I use a wonderful website called - they have searchable old newspapers. I have found many obits, marriages and other info for family members on the site. I can go down to PRC and try to take a pic of the stone also when the weather gets better, hopefully between Lauren and I we can get something a bit more readable - I think a lot of times it is just the time of day that determines how well the pic will come out.

RE: Nehemiah Jones
Hi Cheryl - The incsription on the stone reads:

The grave of Nehemiah Jones,
who died Oct 22, 1835, aged 34
yrs. 11 mo. 13 ds.

The script writing below that is a biblical quote but at the time I took the photo, I could not read it all. We have about 3ft of snow in our area so I won't be able to go back until some of it thaws.

As a side note, chalking a stone (especially and older one such as this) actually damages the stone. The tin foil method is what i use and it doesn't harm the stone.

I hope this helps!

RE: Michael Georg Urban
Hi Crystal,

Michael is mt great-grandfather. John George (Johann Georg), his oldest son, is my grandfather. George and Helen are my parents. Pam W. is my niece. And yes, I'm "Georg IV" though I've always gone by my middle name to avoid confusion with my father.

Back in August I had Emailed you and complimented you on the work you had put in creating all the memorials for the Urban family. I also asked at that time that you transfer my parents memorials to me. When I didn't hear back after over two months, I sent an Email to the Find A Grave administrator just yesterday asking that those two memorials be transferred to me. I really thought you were ignoring my request and knowing you are a family member was reluctant to send that Email as I don't want any hard feelings. That said, I'd greatyly appreciate the transfer of my parents' memorials.

It would be great if you would grant me access to your family tree. You can Email me directly at:

I do go to Calvary. Waiting on a list from that office before I go. I want a donation, so I send them money with the request. Normally about five names. If you have the section and plot # I will photograph it for you.
Kindest Regards,

RE: Joseph Urban
There's a "Baby Urban" stone down there somewhere - it doesn't have any dates on it but I'll find it again and check the location and let you know.

RE: ? on Mary Urban
I'll take another look the next time I'm down there - If the lichens will clean off I'll take care of that as well.

Hiscock photo
It appears Sarah Mae Judson Hiscock is buried in Pueblo Colorado. There is already a memorial for her with a picture of a headstone.

I checked the Riverside directory and it doesn't list her as being buried there.

Uri Hickox
I found Uri (U C) C for Cutler, his wife Amanda Cordelia Andrews Hickox and their daughter Nellie at Newbury center.
I then went to Memorial cem in Burton to look for some requests there and found Uri's parents, Uri and Lydia Esther Ford Hickox.

Did a little research on Ancestry and found that Uri's paternal g parents were Daniel and Phoebe Orton Hickox. Uri had a brother Eleazer. Eleazer officiated at the wedding of Uri and Lydia on Sep 25, 1808 in Burton.

I added photos to the memorials for Stella (Eleazer's wife) and their daughter Cordelia. Some of these grave stones have Hickcox instead of Hickox.

There is a lot of information on this family at Ancestry.

Let me know if I can be of any more help.

If you want to take over the memorials I am sure Joel would transfer them to you. You could then make the family connections.

Rosius & Helen French
Glad to help you Cris.
Please note that I captioned the picture -- YOB for Rosius shows 1843 vs. the memorial 1840.

RE: Dear Macso
Hi Cris: As to cleaning the headstone with anything but water, I don't feel comfortable to do that. I consulted the Findagrave FAQ's, which state: "Gravestones should never be cleaned with anything but water and a soft brush. Slate gravestones from the Revolutionary era and Pre-revolutionary era are best left alone due to their delicate nature and tendency to erode.

Never apply bleach, ammonia, shaving cream, chalk, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, firm pressure or use anything abrasive. Do not post photos of recently chalked or shaving-creamed headstones." So sorry to disappoint you.

Goodrich at Fairhaven
Hi Cris: I fulfilled your request for Leal and Ina Goodrich today. There were other Goodrich headstones in this section, and I took and post them also. I did not find any French grave near Ina. This cemetery has over 80,000 graves and only 30,000 of them have been entered into Findagrave. You could call the office and inquire as to whether they are buried there.

Nehemiah Jones, Sr. (1735-1805)
I saw your note to Donna re: Nehemiah Jones. I manage the Nehemiah Jones (1735-1805) Find A Grave Memorial# 16829702. I have a lot of research regarding him, but have neither uploaded my tree nor yet connected his descendants on F-A-G, pending further research and a few articles I wish to publish.

Best recent research regarding him may be found in: "The Settlers of the Beekman Patent, Dutchess County, New York: An Historical and Genealogical Study of all the 18th Century Settlers in the Patent - Volume IV, Hunter to Leavens", by Frank J. Doherty:

2. NEHEMIAH5 JONES, (Joseph4-3, Abraham2, Thomas1), was born 18 Oct. 1735
at Raynham and witnessed a deed for his brothers in 1754. Jonathan Hall was his
guardian until he reached his majority. He came to the South Precinct, DC by
Feb. 1759 and was taxed there and in Fredericksburgh (erected from South),
through 1779. He married Mary ___ who survived him. Nehemiah Jones served
in Capt. Joseph Dyckman's Company of DC Militia in May 1777. [SBP I:441].
Nehemiah Jones was paid $7.48 on 1 Dec. 1789 for three days hire of a cart and
four oxen at two and a half dollars a day during the Revolution.22 Nehemiah
Jones and William Pearce were appointed referees in DC Court of Common Pleas
17 May 1792 in the case of Thomas Mitchell v. Asa Haynes.
He was in Frederickstown, DC in 1790 at 3-0-4 between Thomas Crosby and
Nathaniel Jones; (he was listed at 1-0-1). Nehemiah Jones died 18 Dec. 1805 in
his 71st year and was buried in the Sears Burying Ground, town of South East,
Putnam Co., NY the next day. [OGPC 317]. Letters were granted to the widow
Mary Jones 13 January 1806 on Nehemiah Jones, late of Franklin. Other
administrators of the estate were: John Paterson, Peter Terry and Stephen Hendrickson. [DCW box 453].

22 Specie Certificates for Revolutionary War Service 1780-1782. Madame Brett Museum,
Beacon, NY, p. 4, #780.

SAMUEL and THOMAS JONES all served in the 3rd (Pawling) Regiment of the
DC Militia.


Both citations above are from Doherty.

Your best source for sorting the Nemehiah Jones confusion resides in census and military records.

Finally, please note: A Nehemiah Jones also served in the 7th regiment - assumed to be Nehemiah Jr.'s father. Nehemiah and Samuel Jones in the 3rd Regiment (cited above) are assumed to be cousins of Nehemiah Jones Jr. (sons of Ebenezer).

I descend from son Nathaniel Jones (1763-1848), brother of Nehemiah Jr. (1760-1848), both sons of Nehemiah Jones Sr. (1735-1805).

Hope this helped,
Philip in NYC

Re: Reid Gravestones, Oak Grove Cemetery
Thank you for the great photos of the Reid gravestones in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Lawton. You did an excellent job. The photos are very clear. I'm so glad you included the parents of John H. and his sister, Dorothy. I have created memorials for them also and added the photos to their respective memorials. I gave you credit for the photos, but my name shows under the photo. If you want to add the photos yourself so your name will show under the photo, I will delete mine. Thank you again for going the extra mile.
Bunn, NC

Darling photo in Mich
Cris, I really thank you for getting the nice photo of James Darling. It really helps to see what 'family' inscribes on those old stones.
Your effort and time is greatly appreciated.
