Re: # 100552458

You should put the photo of the stone on the other memorials for those on the marker.

Memorial# 106786797

This woman is my great great great grandmother - I was wondering if you could help me find her Van Der Poel husband's father - Jacobus Van der Poel was her husband (born about 1817 in Holland).

I'm at a total loss for who his father is ... that would be my great great great great grandfather.

Thank you for your time.

Do you by any chance have access to burial records for this cemetery?

Charles Fields
I have requested a photo of Fields' marker at Mount Mariah which will show Co.B, 24th US Colored Infantry. Perhaps that was his initial enlistment for SAW and the navy/marine service followed?

Elisabeth Shunk Good
Memorial #94044565 on Elisabeth Shunk Good has Francis R. Shunk as his father. He is the brother to Elisabeth. 10 year age difference. I made memorials for her parents Peter Shunk and Susannah Stahl even though I don't have burial records I did happen to find death date for the mother Susannah Stahl Shunk.There was an Old Wilmont Cemetery in Sugar Creek Twp. no longer in use. The burials were transferred to other cemeteries in the area. I believe Susannah and Peter were most likely buried in that old cemetery based on the census record and death record of Susannah.I also placed a newspaper obituary on Jackson Anderson Shunk (brother to Elisabeth). It mentions the move from Somerset Co., Pa. to Wilmont, Ohio which is situated in Sugar Creek Twp., Stark Co., Ohio.

Comm William Crane #37483603
Hello, I noticed you posted biographical information for William Crane. You have not listed a spouse and I was wondering if you knew definitively whether he was married. As have historical articles stating our ancestor is the son of William and Elizabeth, his birth was in 1809 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and his father died in 1846. His widowed mother then moved to Illinois to reside with her adult children. Her headstone identifies her as "Elizabeth, wife of William". The surrounding families on Census records in Illinois are the children of Comm. William Crane's brother, Stephen. Can you shed any light on whether he could have had a wife and children?

Noticed you maintain this memorial. Was wondering if this is the son of George Alfred Shunk 14588605 and Catherine Downey Shunk 14588584 ? I have most of the children located, just waiting for them to link to family. I have been adding obituaries to the Shunk family burials, so you should notice a few. Have a great day!

John Mann - Civil War Vet
Hi - I came across your contact info while I was doing research - I happen to come across the Grand Rapids Historical Society website and took a "detour" to look at their historical photos - and came across a photo titled, "Grand Rapids Greys" which includes several men in their uniforms - including a John Mann. It's always a treasure to find an old family photo - maybe this John Mann is related to you? The website is: and the photo is organized by: SUBJECT, PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY, UNIFORMS, Military.

I noticed that you are maintaining the listing for Richard Lee King.
Is he a relative? If so, I would enjoy corresponding with you as I am researching this same King line.

Hans August Anderson
Hi, I saw thephoto of the grave for Hans. Thank you. He was my grand fathers grand father. My grand father was George August Anderson and his father was August Anderson. August was born in Sweden, apparently Hans was married before he left Sweden, or August was born out of wedlock. Hans and August both lived in Brooklyn with their families. My mother remembered her father telling her that Hans August described the battle on the Monitor as blood and guts everywhere.
I am curious as to where you got the photo of Hans. I saw it on line as being sold in an auction. I have copies of all of his paperwork.
I have also located a few personal articles about him.

Rudman, Gregory Z.
Don't know if you noticed the number of Rudmans buried in Braddock Catholic Cemetery but there quite a few; several are part of my family tree. Gregory's parents are buried there and I maintain their site here on - Joseph Louis Rudman is her father (Memorial #51546422) and his mother is Josepha Louise Webster (Memorial #51546650). I'd like to link Gregory with his parents if we can.

Capt. John E. Rockwell
Thank you sooo much for adding lots of great information to & maintaining Capt. John E. Rockwell's grave. He is my 3rd great grandfather, and was quite the sea captain in his day. (Mighty handsome, too!). I put in a request yesterday for a photograph of his grave, and Dayle Dooley fulfilled it today! We are truly blessed to have such an incredible Find-a-Grave memorial. Many thanks. I've put in some edits to add links to his wives & daughters. I'd be happy to manage his page, but will certainly understand if you prefer to keep it after all the work you've put into researching his life & career.
