Farrar - Cedar Hill Cemetery

When I was going through my pictures from yesterday I noticed that there is another Farrar at Cedar Hill, Garland Hope Farrar Costen. She is in the Beale section which is directly next to the Farrar plot.

Unfortunately, I did not take a photo of her marker but I was able to crop out a photo that I took of the Beale plot. I created a memorial for her (155470380) and posted the pictures. Please let me now if you'd like a transfer.

There is also the grave of Gloria Hope Costen (155442440) in the Beale plot which may be Garland's daughter.

I have looked for a death certificate to verify information but cannot find one online. Are you sure of this information?

We will need the block and plot numbers. The cemetery is HUGE and the cemetery staff is less than helpful. It has gotten so frustrating for the volunteers to get the grave locations from those people that most of us have quit trying. Family members can contact the cemetery office and 'sometimes" have better luck. If you get the location, you can add it to the memorial or message it to me on Find A Grave

I have a book, Adelle Bartlett Harper's Family Lines, which has several pages on early Farrars in Virginia. I will be happy to mail it to you if you want it.

Hello. I just posted a photo of DeWitt Blackmar's stone in Oakwood Cemetery, East Aurora, NY. His was the only Blackmar stone visible in the Blackmar plot, although I suspect there might be more. I have a photo of the large Blackmar monument. Let me know if you would like me to post that as well. It is a large cemetery so I don't know if there are other Blackmars that didn't see.

I think I found an easier way. I can take and upload 3 or 4 photos, you look at them and you tell me which one you want to keep and which ones you want me to DELETE from the memorial. It would be a lot easier than emailing back and forth. I come to Find A Grave every day, usually two or three times a day.

RE: Edward Meara related note...Calvary Cem.
Thanks a million for your kind words. I can visit the headstone and take a few photos and send them to you by email and you choose one and I will upload that one. (Sponsoring gives you 20, not 40)

Added by Marcial on Oct 17, 2015 9:01 AM

Edward Meara
I've read your long note with your concern about the number of photos uploaded and the exact type of photo you want. This site offers another option which they call "sponsoring a memorial"; they charge you $5 and the number of photos will be increased from 5 to up to 20. But one thing is even more important. If you don't provide the grave location, no volunteer will take any photo. CALVARY CEMETERY occupies 365 acres divided into 71 sections, and each section has plots (rows) and ranges, and each range has several graves with numbers. Please call Calvary Cemetery office at (718) 786-8000 then go to “EDIT PLOT” and fill out the information given to you (SECTION, RANGE, PLOT and GRAVE NUMBER).

Farrar memorials
You are more than welcome for the help with the Farrar Memorials. My great aunt Alice was a Farrar so I have looked at a lot of death records and traced her father, Harvey Farrar's, line as much as I could.

Annie Farrar, memorial# 105113682 - Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma, CA

I saw your memorial flowers on this memorial and I have a feeling you asked for a photo of the grave, since there is a photo there.

However, there IS a stone for her plot. She is buried with three of the Crummey family members. She does not have an inscription, but she's buried with them. I just added the photo, so thought you might want to know.

RE: Thank you for your photographic efforts.
I walked the entire section 16. I think that was the only Meara in it.

RE: John Clark Farrar photo.
You are correct. The funeral home marker is there and a rosin type decorator flagstone sitting on an easel is the only other marker. No actual headstone on his grave.

In addition I took a photo of Jackie Carol Farrar to the left of John. There are three smaller stones (foot stone type) and they are Farrar, Farrar, and Little Burr. Not sure if these make sense to you but I have the photos if you would like me to email them to you. There didn't appear to be a spot to upload them.

Peter Luthi
I was wondering if anyone has found out when Peter Luthi came over on a ship and where it docked. Does anyone know who his parents are. I sure could use some help.

Jane Collins in Woodlawn Cem.
I have posted a photo of Jane I. Collins on her Memorial Page. I found her in Woodlawn Cemetery, not Forest Cemetery, buried with Frank Collins and her daughter (?) Ruth Collins. The death date on her current memorial page does not match that on her headstone. I have suggested to the creator of her memorial page that the date of death be changed and the cemetery be changed to that of Woodlawn. I hope she is the correct Jane Collins!

It seems I saw a note from you asking if I worked on Cogswell or Blackmar genealogy. I'm not sure it was from you, but didn't want you to think I ignored the message. I have neither of those names in my genealogy - yet!!! :) Gail

RE: Thank you for your helpful photography.
Just want you to know that I am still working on Maple grove Cemetery in Machias, NY. It has only taken me 2 years to do, as I have been working on Mount Prospect in Franklinville, a much larger cemetery, of which I am still not finished yet !!

Still have about 3 sections to go & it would be very helpful if it wouldn't rain !!

Sincerely, Laurie
