Jerome Stillson Obituary / 72562476
Dear Jessica,

Thank you for posting Jerome B Stillson's grave. Stillson has no living descendants, but I am a journalist and researcher interested in his life and career. If you are willing to transfer the memorial to me, I would gladly care for it. Otherwise, attached is his obituary from the New York Times, 27 Dec 1880.

With thanks, Elaine

Jerome B. Stillson, one of the best known journalists of this City, died at the St. Denis Hotel yesterday afternoon at 2:30. He had been suffering from Bright's disease of the kidneys since last June, and was confined to his room for three or four weeks past. His body was taken to Merritt's undertaking establishment, in Eighth-avenue, preparatory to its removal to Buffalo to-day. Mr. Stillson was born in Buffalo in 1841. During the latter part of the war he became a special correspondent for the World of this City, and rapidly rose to distinction as a journalist. When peace returned to the country he was made correspondent of the World in Washington, and in 1874 served as managing editor of that paper for a short term. He then became the Albany correspondent of the World, filling that position until 1875, when he went to Denver, Col., where he engaged in business in connection with Western lands. In 1877 he became attached to the staff of the Herald, his first notable productions in this capacity being a series of letters from Utah describing the evils of Mormonism. While engaged in this work he was shot at and wounded in Salt Lake City. Since then he has remained on the Herald staff, his last work having been done in Indiana during the campaign of last September. Mr. Stillson leaves no family. He was married about 10 years to Miss Whiton, of Piermont, N.Y., but she died a few years after the marriage.

RE: Clark Anson Miller (87515986)
Hi, you are very welcome.
About the missing death date, it happens quite often. Why? I guess either money or very often there are no close relatives left, or they have moved out of State.

Greetings Ingrid.

Do you know how the people in this memorial are related to each other? Also, do you know where any of them were born? Thanks!

RE: Robert Hunter McIlvaine #88396230

I'll be glad to put the change in that you requested.

To answer your question about researching Robert Hunter McIlvaine, I wasn't researching him. Just taking photos. I take a lot of photos of headstones. Since most of the memorials have already been posted to Find a Grave, I concentrate on posting the photos I take instead.

RE: Ann E. Miller
I'm rather new at this, I'd be glad to take over Ann E. Miller and George Benjamin Miller's memorials. George Benjamin is my direct ancestor. My number is 47260270. Do I need to do anything else?
Thanks, Phyllis

Ann E. Miller
Ann E. (Davison) Miller was the wife of George H(azelius) Miller not George B(enjamin) Miller.
George H. was a son of George B. Miller.

George Benjamin Miller is my 3 greats grandfather, his wife was Delia Bray Snyder.

Hewitt pics
I have eleven more headstones from Hewitt Cemetery that I can't read, and one of them is shaped exactly like Richard and Sarah's (which I couldn't read without enhancing the color). It is probably one of the sons (maybe both if they shared a headstone). I really didn't think I could help you, but a little more diligence with the iPhoto... :-)

RE: FM Van Slyke
It was all on
a free online newspaper archive. I searched a few different ways
as Frederick VanSlyck (no space)
as F. M. Van Slyck
I used "exact search" but all the words, any of the words, and boolean are also available.
you get the idea. This site has millions of old newspaper pages.
If you have never been on this site I warn you!!! just call in your orders to have pizza,chinese,etc. delivered directly to your computer because one lead goes to another and on and on.

FM Van Slyke
He was the Pastor of the Pilgrim Baptist Church in New York City.
He died in England and his church had a memorial service for him in June of 1879 (his parent's attended). His body was sent to his parents home in Little Falls about December 2 of 1879 and his funeral took place the same day the body arrived in Little Falls.

FM Van Slyke
I found this info in a copy of the Utica Morning Herald published on Wednesday, May 21, 1879:

Rev. F. M. Van Slyke, of Little Falls, who sailed for Europe recently, is dangerously ill at Liverpool and may die. His mother left for New York, Monday, to join her son.

I don't know if he died in Liverpool and she brought his body back, or if she brought him back and he died here.

Re: Mary Van Slyke

She does not have a headstone. In the cemetery records she is listed as being buried in this cemetery, but only from burial ground register records with no lot number. She is listed separately from the rest of the family on a different page. The rest of the family
is listed together as a group in lot 706. She most likely is in that lot, but there are no records saying so.

I actually added parents pictures this morning. Had not done Florence yet.

RE: Van Slyke photos
Not at all, I am not done adding photos. There does not seem to be a memorial to Rev. Frederick M. VanSlyke - the son. His headstone is in the center. If this is your family - add the memorial and I will post the photo to it. I have a closeup that almost lets you read the whole thing.

Hi Jessica..........
I hope I didn't offend or hurt your feelings by enhancing and editing some of your beautiful, detailed images of Tommy Foley's granite grave markers. Photo editing is a whole lot of fun to me. I just love seeing what I can do with different pictures. I mainly restore classic automobile images, so working with people pictures & images like this are a new learning experience for me. I did some artwork for Tommy's sister and I just loved your pictures so much of his grave stone, that I wanted to see what I could do. I learn more by doing and wanted to share it.
God Bless you for your contributions. Tommy is a great hero to many people and he truly lives on!

Take Care

Photo Request for Vincent Princiotta

Thank you for offering to get a photo of Vincent Princiotta's gravesite.

I called Rockland Cemetery and they told me that Vincent is buried in Section F of the Rockland Cemetery.

According to their directions, his gravesite has no Plot or Grave number. However, what you do is while in Section F, you go up a dirt road, past a big hill and to the right side of big tree, there is a big stone right behind the tree that is marked "Princiotta", which is his gravesite.

See if you can find and take a photo of his gravesite. Thanks again for offering to take a photo of his gravesite.
