forest Hill Cemetery - Utica - FAG request
You have a request in F A G for a photo of a grave. The memorial site does not include the Plot and/or Lot numbers which would help easily find the graves you want photographed.

If you will call or email the Forest Hill Cemetery and ask for Plot and Lot information, I would be glad to go there and take the photographs for you.

The office number is 315-735-2701 and their email is

Once you have the information, please add it to the person’s F A G memorial site and mark it with a “Photo Request” or email me the burial information at

Please note: If the gravestone is covered in lichen or moss I will attempt to clean them with water and soft soap solution, except for older slate and limestone gravestones. I do not use shaving cream, chalk or abrasives.

GPS Coordinate update: Also note, I routinely update the GPS coordinates on the individual’s F A G memorial to those of the specific gravesite instead of the cemetery. Please let me know if you do NOT want this updated.

Best regards,

Hi Jeni:
Jack and Jeanne Younkin were friends of ours in a gem and mineral club. We both belonged to this club for many years. I really do not know about any of the family. Sorry I can't help you more. They both were 'kind and lovely friends to have & we had some good rock trips.' If I find some good pictures of them I will let you know.

You are quite welcome. You have to know that this stone was on the verge of being lost, perhaps forever. Thought you might like to hear the story. This is a relatively small cemetery, on the outer edge of the county. The graves are laid out in rows. I was systematically walking the rows, reading the names where possible. I was walking through one row where there was a gap of unused ground when something contrasting with the green grass caught my eye, about 20-30 feet directly off my right side, actually in a different row. It was a whitish patch only about 4 inches in diameter. I went over to it and saw that it was smooth and hard. I removed some of the earth from on top of it and realized it was a gravestone. I went back to my vehicle and found a screwdriver and a windshield ice scraper. After uncovering it, it was still muddy and illegible. No water was available so I actually used about a half a can of pepsi and a brush to clean it off the best I could. I had a list of 14 graves I was searching for, and when I could finally read this one, it turned out to be one on the list. I do not know if this stone originally stood erect, or was mounted this way flat on it's back, but over time the grass and dirt had reclaimed it except for that one small 4 inch patch not quite yet covered. I plan to return there with some water and utensils in order to clean it up better. I will get a better photo and will replace the current one. This cemetery is apparently not monitored closely and so I will check on this stone from time to time in the future, to ensure the earth does not reclaim it, as it almost had done already. This was my first expedition as a find a graver. I found seven of the fourteen, but yours was the lucky catch of the day, one I am sure I will remember. Thought you might like to hear the story.

re: Ellen Randels at Sunset Memorial
Hello, I went to the Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery office to inquire the lot location of Ellen, and this is what they said:
"Although Ellen was cremated at Sunset, her cremains were returned to the Funeral Director of whichever funeral home handled the arrangements. Typically, the remains are then handed over to whichever family member requested this."

Please change her current burial location to unknown; cremains with family - until you can locate where she was finally laid to rest, if she ever was.

She is NOT interred/inurned at this cemetery.

Ellen Frances Hughes
I see that her parents identify her as Frances that married Alvin. I don't need her death certificate but I wouldn't mind if you emailed me.
I'd like to send you what proof I have for her mother Nettie being buried in Benton County, Washington. It would be better than posting.

Ellen Frances Hughes Randels
Does the death certificate give her mother and father's names? I know where her mother is buried but I want to make certain this is the correct person. I have been having the Richardson family linked where possible. I'm guessing Nettie actually must be the short name for Rosanne Genetta Richardson.

Here is Frances on the census information......
1920 census Kansas Sedgwick County Wichita
Francis J Hughes 41 Texas
Nettie Hughes wife 32 KS
Bessie I Hughes dau 11 OK
Frances W Hughes dau 10 OK
Katie J Hughes dau 6 OK
Bickford B Richardson bro-in-law 22 OK

1930 census Kansas Greenwood County Eureka
Alvin L Randels 20 NE
Frances W Randels 20 OK
Flora J Randels 1 KS

1940 Census Kansas Sedgwick County Wichita

Ellen Frances"Hughes" Randels
# 95575713 Is this memorial a relative of yours? I was just wondering why she was called Ellen when two census have her name as Frances W. Hughes 1920 and Frances W. Randels 1930. The 1940 census only has Frances Randels. I know the social security death index has Ellen.---Are there any other records out there? I know that the Minnesota death index has her mother's maiden name as Richardson and that would be the correct name for the mother of Frances W Hughes. I like genealogy and find this interesting.

Judith Brooks
William and Rebecca Brooks
I am researching the Brooks family and can tell you that the husband of Jane Ghormley was Christopher Irwin Brooks. Married in Fayette County on 5 March 1840. His second wife was Harriet Newell Edmiston.
My research shows conflicting information on William and Rebekka. I am planning a road trip to Logan County in April and while doing so ran across a cemetery listing for this cemetery that records that William was 27 days old at death and Rebekka was 1 month and 2 days and lists the mother as Harriet. Seems to me a while back I found something that had headstone inscriptions stating they were both born in 1840. Do you have any proof to that effect?
If you are as confused now as I am, I hope to get something concrete when I visit.
No problem with Margaret's info.

I added all the local Ghormleys I could find info on - including who I believe are Willard's parents (also transferring them to you). I linked Sarah to a Willard that may or may not be the right one...just putting the info out there for you to determine. As of now I've not discovered a family link between me or any of the other Ghormleys I added, so if you'd like to manage any of them just send me a SAC. Thanks!

RE: Ghormley
I also transferred Willimina's father's memorial to you. I also have several of her siblings' memorials if you want them.

Who was your husbands' parents? All I show on my tree is a female ? Ghormley b abt 1925. Since your husband is a Williad and Sarah must have had a son too.

I take it you are descended from Willard and Sarah Ghormley? Want John and Willimina's memorials?

If you are descended from them we are cousins through the MOOREs.

I read your comment on the Critser requests for the Springdale Cemetery and originally thought everything was just fine. Then I looked up the Critser names in the cemetery copies I made for the Springdale Cemetery and discovered that most of the ones she was asking for were buried in what was called the "Old Section". This "Old Section" is supposed to be located across highway 56 from the main Springdale Cemetery. The little hand-drawn map shows this "Old Section" located near the main entrance for the Springdale Cemetery (but on the other side of the road). I remembered you doing some photography work there for the Old Bethel Cemetery so I went back to look for all the Critser memorials in Webster Co. and located several where I had set up Critser memorials for the Old Bethel Cemetery. I guess the old section of Springdale Cemetery wasn't really separated from the Old Bethel Cemetery and it all got photographed and set up as Old Bethel. Once I get this email on the way to you, I'll go back to those Old Bethel Critser memorials where they are duplicated in the Springdale Cemetery. I'll find my diskettes where I saved the Old Bethel photographs and recover those Critser photographs and email them on to you so that you can fill at least some of her tombstone requests. Then I'll delete the Critser memorials which I set up for those photographs in the Old Bethel Cemetery since they'll now be posted in the Springdale Cemetery.

You might want to forward a copy of this email on to the lady with the Critser requests for Springdale so that she'll know what's going on. Otherwise, it's going to look a bit strange to have just told her that everything was photographed and posted and then suddenly have some photographs appear.

Things are just fine here. Still hot outside and not a drop of rain in sight.

Take care,

Check Springdale cemetery and the request that went in on the Critser's. Click on her name and see if I gave her enough info about Springdale and photographing it last summer.

Hope everything is going great your way. Going great here just 102 with heat index who knows what I give. We did get rain Thursday night. It was great! Huge thunderstorm, took power out for over an hour, couldn't open the windows because of the rain, you know how quick the house got hot. It took about 20 minutes. After the storm, finally the lights came back on, we had to hunt down patio furniture. LOL! Blew the table over and the chairs in the next door neighbors yard over the Lincoln fence. But..... glad we got rain.

Have a great day!

Hi Jeni,

My name is Karen Waddell last summer I photographed every headstone that was available to view and marked in Springdale cemetery in Sebree. My Find A Grave Friend Lynn Fischer then processes them by building a memorial and researching for linking to family members. If a headstone was available for anymore of you Critser family members I would have photographed them. When I start on a request on a cemetery I end up doing the whole cemetery. I am addicted to Find A Grave. I don't want future generations to be hunting for lost family members like we are now. Lynn has a book on Springdale Cemetery if you would like to contact her. Just click on her name under my Find a grave friends. I am sorry I could not find any more of your family headstone to photo there.
