RE: Mary Ellen Hadley Riley
Tom thank you for the information. I've been on my own little quest for quite some time and it's finally paying off. I will add that info for Mary Ellen. She would have been my 1st cousin, twice removed. I wonder if you know anything about her mom Elizabeth Preston Hadley. She was my great grandpa's older sister and the one I had the least amount of information on. I'm really wondering where she's buried. Her parents and many of her siblings are buried her in NJ and Elizabeth was the only one that moved away and I was able to locate until another family member found me on Ancestry. I love the photo of Mary Ellen, she reminds me a bit of her cousin, Mame Walker.

Tom, Thank you so much for adding that photo. I can see a bit of a family resemblence in some photos I have on my memorials. I guess in a distant way we are cousins. Your great great grandmother Elizabeth Preston Hadley was my great grandpa George's sister. I have been looking for her for the longest time. Elizabeth being a woman, once she had married, I lost track of her. Last year someone linked us up and since then I have been so happy to add that link to the family to Find A Grave and ancestory.com.

Maybe we can help each other in the future. I have one child of John and Nanny (your great great great grandparents) that I have yet to find. His name is Joseph. I think he stayed home with the parents all his life, I believe he died in a home in NJ, but his burial is a mystery to me. With another cemetery added to my list, it's more for me to check out. One day when I'm retired, I'm going to follow up on all the loose ends, until then, I add as I can.

Well, it is nice to find family. Have a great weekend. Your cousin, Sharon
