Thanks for the link, Lisa. I'll check it out.

I have a pdf of Ezekiel's pension file. Let me know if you want a copy.

Ezekiel Crandall
Hi Lisa, I see you left a comment on Ezekiel Crandall's page that he was your ancestor. I've run into a wall with my ancestor, Samuel A Crandall. I believe he is the son of Ezekiel or possibly one of Ezekiel's sons. No paper document to link them. I have taken a DNA test at 23andMe and match to someone that has James Crandall and Damaris Kenyon in their tree (Ezekiel's parents). Another descendant of Samuel A Crandall I'm working with (Gary Crandall) has taken a Y-DNA test and matches up to others who trace their lines to Elder John Crandall of Rhode Island. I'm curious if you have taken a DNA test or do you have an online tree? Do you know anything of Ezekiel's marriage to Amy? Which child of Ezekiel is your ancestor?

Thanks, Greg

RE: Family Resting in Medbery
Thanks for all your help, I am in the process of sending a email to Pat Peck from the headhunters site. We also have Peck, Arnolds in our family from Mass, RI, NY etc. so I can't help myself but to ask her about her Peck family.

I was referring to Find A grave project when I said it was just me. I got a good start with so many different lines in our family and I am trying to carry on and expand on all their hard work.

RE: Family Resting in Medbery
Wow, thanks Lisa,

Well, actually it is just me, I have been trying to enter and link as many Medbury/Medbery in Mass, RI, Conn, NY, OH etc and sending messages to other people who have entered Medbury/Medbery memorials to link to parents and or children. I knew a group went to Saratoga County, NY but not having any luck finding them in Find A Grave site so thank goodness, NY has a good system so I started looking and found this Medbery Cemetery with only 4 people added so of course I had to do all of them because there might be names from the daughters, you never know. I finally got all entered today and going thru to see who is in my family tree and trying to find out who the other people are in the cemetery.

I was wondering about requesting photo's, so you think that the people who took original photo's would be willing to post them on Find A Grave?

I will look at the site you sent me and I will see if I can contact those people, thanks to much for the info.

I visited Fraser Cemetery today to try to find the stone of John Gillespie. I was wondering if you had any luck finding that stone during your transcription. I was unable to locate the stone due the cemetery being in such a neglected shape. Thanks!

RE: Fraser Cemetery
Thanks so much for the quick response. According to my friend who has been doing genealogy of this ancestor, his last name actually does have an s in it. It is Gillespie. Thanks for everything! I hope to make it up there tomorrow to check it out and take some photographs for my friend. I really apreciate all of your help!

Hey, I was wondering that the significance of the (*) was next to the name of John Gellepie in Fraser Cemetery. I am looking for his grave for a friend of mine. It is one of her early ancestors and plan on taking a trip to his burial site tomorrow. Is his stone still able to be found, or is it missing? Is that what the asterisk means? Missing? Thanks so much for transcribing this cemetery! Your help has helped me immensly in finding John's final resting place!

I hadn't noticed, Lisa, how new a find-a-grave member you are! You're certainly off to an interesting start!!! Kathy

Fraser Cemetery
Hi, Lisa. Thank you, again, for all of your hard and tedious work in getting the transcriptions for folks in Fraser Cemetery posted on find-a-grave. And, especially, thank you for the photos of the stones of my Pawling and Morey family members! Maybe there's someone or some group that would be interested in taking on the task of cleaning up this cemetery. And, hopefully, someone else will find their long-lost family members because of your efforts. Take some Lisa-time!! Kathy

RE: Ballston Spa
Just all part of the fun on Find A Grave. I've learned a lot by doing it too, which in turn helps me with better memorials and information research. Thanks for the note.

Happy Thanksgiving!

RE: Mabel Crandall Gilroy
Wow, she was almost a 100 years old (93). Did you mean to put her grave marker photo on her husband's memorial? If you would, please upload a copy onto her memorial as well. Thanks for the photos and information.

Henry Hall
Hi Lisa,

Thank you for taking the pictures of Henry Hall's gravestone and putting them on the Find a Grave site. I think perhaps that grave is Henry and Jane's son's grave. He was in the civil war and the elder Henry died before the civil war. I am trying to find more information on the son Henry. I do not have a birth date for him but do for some of his siblings. I think he may have been born in the early 1830's. If you see more Halls in the Factory Village cemetery I would appreciate you letting me know. I could then set up memorials for them if you didn't want to do that.

Thanks again,
Dorothy Gooby

Larabee - Crandall - Gilroy Memorials
Updated, created, and linked the memorials you sent me.

Martin and Rosabell also had a daughter, Carrie Frances Mae Larabee(b 1890), who married Frank Seaman Snedker June 20,1914 in Nassau, New York

No listing for either of them, so there final residence and burial is unknown at this time.

Mabel Crandall Gilroy
Having a bit of trouble reading the date of death for Mabel Crandall Gilroy. The lichen is so thick, I can't tell if it is 1932 or 1952. Your original may be higher resolution and show a bit more detail. Just let me know.

Helpful Suggestion
Hi Lisa,

Welcome to the Find A Grave community. F A G is one of the coolest history, genealogy, and taphology sites on the Internet.

Just a helpful suggestion, if you want to ask other folks to make changes, add links, or additions, in the upper right corner of every memorial, there is an 'EDIT' button. Click on it, and simply use the SAC link (Suggest A Correction), and make your request there. What it does, is send a message to the memorial owner, with the memorial number and the information in one email, which makes it super easy to update the memorial without having to look up each one. Just thought you'd like to know.

Hope you have years of fun here, and good luck 'graving'.

Thank you so much for getting the pics of the Pearsalls headstones for me! Piecing together the puzzles of my boyfriend's family tree is hard because we are so far from where his family is from. Wonderful people like you really help me when I feel like I'm stuck at a dead end.

Thank you,
