What kind of photos may be added to a memorial page?

...... However, if there is already a photo of the headstone, DO NOT add a second similar photo unless the original is of poor quality and the new photo is dramatically better. This leaves room for photos of the deceased within the five-photo limit on unsponsored memorials.

Thank you.

Mt. Pleasant
Death Certificates
Where did you find the amazing scans of death certificates? I am the President of Mt. Pleasant and would love to complete our files, by replacing missing info with this type of scan or document. Was it an on-line source? I realize I can go to City Hall and get copies, but if an online source is available that I am unaware of I would be forever grateful.

RE: Hewitt grave
I added a photo with the veteran's flag. I have also added a memorial and photos for his brother, Daniel C. and Daniel's wife, Jane Gillies Hewitt, in case you are interested in that branch of the family.

RE: Redington photo

The guided visit is highly recommended. Markers are few and far between so having a knowledgeable guide is a definite plus. Contact Stephen Recker. He was our guide and is FABULOUS! Email address is

On the Trail
RE: Redington photo
Hi Ryan

Thank you for your email. Indeed it is a very small world. When I received your message last week, I was actually travelling and during the trip was able to visit Crampton's Gap and Burkittsville. We hired a local guide and he was even able to show us Franklin's VI Corps Headquarters. Here is a link that will take you to some of the pictures

Here's a link that will carry you through the entire process of identifying the photo of JCO Redington.

One of the persons responding to the post is a lady who is also researching JCO Redington. She has other photos of him as well. Her name is Connie Sterner and I have corresponded with her via that forum and by email.

James Rice - Green-Wood Cemetery
The Green-Wood's Civil War Project has not identified this James Rice as having served during the Civil War. You should contact the cemetery's historian through the website. Because of the year of his death his records would have been looked at. The 1861 date could also be a re-interment date. Lot 12299 is empty - no monument, no gravestones, just grass.

I added a photo to the memorial for Susan and in the caption I entered what is inscribed on the stone. If you want, I will remove my photo.

Kevin Roberson
Max Mabeus
I was looking into Max Mabeus. He is my wife's Great Great Grand Father, so my sons 3rd Great Grandfather. I found info about him on ancestry.

However, you mention that "He served in the 18th New York Infantry during the Civil War under the alias of Michael Ryan. He also served in the 91st New York Infantry".

I am curious where you got this info. So I can cite it.

RE: Larkin grave
You're welcome, glad to help. I'm no expert with civil war stones, so I can't tell if there's a difference with an original and a replacement. But I do know that St Agnes cleans stones for veterans whenever they could find volunteers to do it.

RE: Rosaw - Smith
That is very interesting! He is buried next to Sarah E. Colvin-Smith. I wonder if there is a connection there. If you find out any more about his alias, I would love to know. I keep a database for the cemetery and the historical society and it is fun to add in the interesting facts. I uploaded the picture to your memorial. Should the last name on the memorial be his actual name Rosaw or Rusaw. I think the guidelines suggest the name on the stone, but whatever you use I want to keep it consistent for the database. Thanks for the info!

Alfred Truax
I have found several records for Alfred Truax but none that indicate he is buried in Tulocay Cemetary. We have a record set that lists the deaths of Alfred and of his wife Harriet but we have recently discovered that they are not Tulocay records. Back in 1999 the library was given photocopies of an old ledger that was believed to be early burials at Tulocay. We indexed the records and had them bound and titled Tulocay records. While bringing our Tulocay records up to date just last month we discovered that they are not Tulocay records. Tulocay has provided us with a database containing all their burials from 1873 through 2013; Alfred and Harriet Truax are not listed. Harriet died 8 Jan 1889, age 54 and Alfred died 18 Nov 1890, age 60. Please feel free to reply directly to for more information.

George Green
I am not sure if George green is actually buried in Beacon, NY. I have been transcribing Records from "Old Gravestones of Dutchess County", New York by J. W. Poucher published in 1924.

Since he was born in Dutchess county, this may have been transcribed on a family plot in this cemetery. maybe a call to both cemeteries may help clear up the mystery!

RE: Decker grave
Hi, I`m almost done photographing in St Lukes and I looked down and there it was almost totally buried.I knew the name was familiar but did not realize it was a photo request name. I take the request names with me but it did not click until I entered it on the memorial. Hopefully I will stumble on to others . take care, Doug

Samuel Taylor memorial
Hi. My husband and I spent quite a bit of time at Berea Cemetery today but could not find Samuel Taylo's marker. That doesn't mean he isn't there - I would say 30-40% of the markers there are nearly impossible to read. I photographed the only Taylor I found (Daniel Taylor, who was already set up).
Sorry to disappoint you.
