I am sorry I sent you an edit for Noreen's married name then found her husband's memorial. Your original spelling was correct. The lichen on the headstone made it hard to read. My apologies!

Recently I covered much ground in search of the grave listed below.
Started out on the road that is in the cemetery photo- I guessed it would be in the older section, but the oldest graves are amongst newer graves as well in this cemetery.
Any suggestions are welcome.

|Carole Elizabeth Nurmi Cummings # 47178231||Truly fascinating...|
That sounds quite intriguing. It is always a wonderful thing to search for soldiers in older newspapers.
What is more fascinating is the fact that you are finding other information as well.
I would never have known that this off branch cousin of mine had been murdered if it not for you.
Like you, I totally agree with the digitization of all records to make them more accessible online.
Would love to be able to get to old obituaries in order to add them to the findagrave site as well.
Truly DO appreciate all of that effort you are going through.
Your efforts have not gone unnoticed, and I, for one, appreciate your time and addition for findagrave!
You are doing a super job!

HOW interesting about that gentleman dying...any ideas where he is buried...
It is truly wonderful how you can find newspaper information.
Which route have you been using to find this info. Would love to look for my New Jersey relatives obits as well.

Thanks for your message. I have incorporated the additional info about Capt. Benson's death into his bio, and have also credited you as the source of the newspaper excerpt in the Notes section of his memorial page.

|Carole Elizabeth Nurmi Cummings # 47178231||Quite interesting about Effie Van Antwerp|
Added that info to her memorial.
Any more write ups about the family?
I wonder what happened.

Dear Jimmy -
Thanks for your message. There are no Skinners left in Holyoke, Massachusetts (where the Skinner mills were), but in the passage of generations, they have moved to other parts of New England and the US. And indeed, there are Skinner descendants on Fishers Island. I believe that Sarah Kilbourne's book American Phoenix refers to some of the later family history. P. Stott

|Betty Atkinson||Thomas A. Cobb|
I used the info you uploaded on findagrave for this fellow to trace his family back to a Samuel Cobb b. 1750 in Pasquotank, NC...
Thomas' father was Kenneth R Cobb Jr and mother was Rose D.. mother was about 25 yrs younger than her husband...

You are welcome on the transfer! I photographed the new part of that cemetery years ago because my father and grandparents were buried there and posted everything on Findagrave for others. It is nice when a relative takes care of the memorials!

|Ryan-O||RE: Mr. Jos. T. Barry 62830546|
Here's a link to his death cert. on
It has his middle intial as 'T'.
But you are right, I just found his birth cert. on there as well and his middle name at birth was John.
Sadly it looks like he died from an accidental drowning.
But now you are the one who has to change his name on the memorial because of the transfer.
Have a goodnight,

Just keep doing what you're doing. I know what you mean about the scary clique... I found if you just ignore them they go away. Especially that one in particular, she should spend more time correcting her own errors and less time watching and harassing other people. If it makes you feel any better, she sends a bunch of NASTY GRAMS then lays off for awhile… almost like the behavior of someone drunk dialing. I don't even send corrections or requests to her… the less interaction, the better. I have little time for people of that caliber. You are right on the money about adding pieces of the puzzle, eventually the whole picture comes together. And yes WELL SAID is kind of a Navy term. Or for your contribution here on this site I could say KUDO's on a job well done! PEACE and Happy Holidays! JD

Jimmy H's excellent response:
No not findagrave, I was talking about Gerblady.
I have never encountered that tone while pursuing family history, except maybe from a crusty archivist who hasn't been out of the archive for an extended period. I would guess some of the most historic finds that come about from this site have or will be memorials created from several pieces of information converging at findagrave, contributed by two or more individuals. I get the concept, collaboration, and synergy. Imagine the historic graves where no headstone has existed matbe for decades, but by sharing scraps and shreds of information that lost record is virtually restored, available to any interested party. It's called Findagrave, not foundagrave, many of us are still looking for for specific graves. Maybe it should be called Lokkingfor-finding-foundagrave. I do family history for enjoyment try and have some fun.
