RE: Alexander and Phebe
That is correct about Ann. She is the daughter of Thomas Willis and Phoebe Young. Ann was born 23 Feb 1813 in New York and died 22 Jul 1853 in Jericho, Nassau, New York. She is buried in Jerich0 Friends' Burial Ground in Jericho, New York. Her Find A Grave Memorial Number is #146057389.

Thomas has one other known sibling: Isaac Willis b. 30 Nov 1771 in Westbury, Nassau, New York d. 31 Jan 1793 in New York. It is noted that Isaac is the twin brother to Thomas. No other information known about Isaac.

Thomas Willis first married Phoebe Searing and to this marriage three children were born: Mary Willis (1798-1888), Silas Willis (1801-1820) and Isaac Willis (1804-1813). His second marriage was to Phoebe Young and to this union one child was born: Anne Willis (1813-1853). His third marriage was to a much younger woman, unknown to me and to this marriage one child was born: William Thomas Willis (1832-1912), from which I am descended from by my mother's side of the family.

I have your requests for Sampsell's, However the marker have sank and the graas has all but overtaken them. I did Photograph them , hardly readable. I have asked the Supervisor to have graves cleaned. I'm visiting until Wednesday Nov 11. I will check status and make new photos if they clean them.

Do want me to post the "BAD" photos until then or wait?

RE: Hennessey's and Dubree Child
I've tried calling the church a couple of times, but only get voicemail. The number is 610-933-2526, but, according to their website, they are only open from 7:00 to 8:30 each morning.

You might want to call to explain what you want to do.

RE: Lewis and Bower familes
Sally, I am sorry it has taken me so long to reply to you. I do not recognize the Bowers about whom you are asking. (Western Cemetery -1870s). They may be relatives, but I haven't found that to be true at this point in time. I'm sorry I can't you.

RE: Frank Virgil Martin

Thank you so much for contacting me about Frank Martin and family. Unfortunately, I'm not related in any way. I just do research connecting people whose graves I photograph or whose memorials I create from death certificates. The research is to ensure accuracy and to make it easier for descendants to connect the dots.

If I'm managing memorials belonging to any of your ancestors, I'll be happy to transfer them to you if you send a request using the suggest a change field on the edit tab (so I can locate the correct memorial(s)).

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

William Brown
Hi Sallie,
It looks like William Brown's death certificate number is A4207, but it is possible that the '0' might be another number as it is hard to read. Death certificates in Baltimore City started in 1875, so there isn't one for Sarah Brown.

RE: Sarah and William Brown Green Mount
Hi Sallie,
I put captions under the photos with explanations, however, that is their plot (that was listed in the request), but there are no Brown stones anywhere in the area. I'm sure the photos cover the area of their plot.
I added the photos to show what the plot looked like. You might ask the cemetery if there are others in their plot (that might have markers) that you could do a photo request for. I know they charge for a plot list, but it isn't too unreasonable (compared to some cemeteries).
Maybe you could just ask them what the name on a marker is at that plot (and confirm the plot number)
You should be able to zoom in some in the pictures and see if you recognize any names (like Spilcker, Rigger).
That cemetery is in a lousy neighborhood, but I usually go first thing in the morning. There is a secure wall around the whole cemetery, and I never-ever see any 'locals' inside the cemetery.
My grandfather actually grew up across the street--literally--from the cemetery.
Good luck,
Dan Phelan

RE: Frank Virgil Martin

No, I'm sorry but the only information I have (my husband isn't involved in Find A Grave activities) is what I've researched and already added to memorials. I don't have in-depth knowledge about the Martins or Cooks. I wish I could be more help.

My wife is a direct descendant of Amy Peasley---Martha's sister. However, I am the genealogist and have been working on her lines since we married in 1993. Please feel free to contact me because I love to collaborate. Our home email is and our home phone is 724-364-7966. There are lots of Peasley descendants out there.

Hi Ms. Pierdolla:

On the Martha M. Martin find a grave entry it has her maiden name as paisley---this is incorrect--it was actually Peasley. Could you please correct this. Thank you so much.

RE: Friends Cemetery Baltimore Md
I accidently found the Friends' Intelligencer and Journal through the website just a couple of days ago. I was searching for my great-great grandmother, and her death announcement in the FI came up.
You can just search for Friends' Intelligencer and Journal on the Internet without going to mocavo. You can try googlebooks and, too. It was published for many years.
Good luck in your search.

M.L.D. request
Hi Sallie,

I visited the Wesley Cemetery this morning and the caretaker was onsite. The MLD monument is located to the immediate left of the Benjamin Brown monument. The space for MLD is E-85. I took a picture of them both if you'd like that as well, just let me know.

Best Regards,
Sara Schroers

RE: Cook Family Requests Cedar Hill, Newark,OH
Thanks Sallie. I'll send a note when I get the photos up.

RE: Cook Family Requests Cedar Hill, Newark,OH
Sallie,, It's absolutely no trouble at all. Perhaps one day markers can be placed...I have family in New York, Penn and Virginia all without markers, also in Oregon. That's what keeps me going...maybe one day. Keep your head up, at least you know where they are, that sometimes is the biggest chore. I can post a photo if you'd like of the plot. Just let me know. Thank you so much for the effort you've put in to keeping the history alive.

Cook Family Requests Cedar Hill, Newark,OH
Hello Sallie, I am sorry to say that I was able to find the burial location for George, Martha and Florence Cook at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Newark, Ohio, but there are no markers or headstones. They are buried in Sec 8 Lot 755

RE: David Brown friends Cemetery Baltimore

Sorry, hit the wrong key before :-)

I've transferred David Brown in Friends Cemetery to you. I'm glad he finally found a home. If you have access to GenealogyBank newspaper archive, you can find advertisements he placed for his patent medicines in the Baltimore papers. Also, his obituary.

I don't know anything about his family. Once I determined he wasn't my relative (from the newspaper articles), I stopped looking.
