RE: Capt Robert H Stanton
Capt Robert H Stanton who is in Sailors Snug Harbor Cemetery, Saten Island, NY. #105802060. Aren't you the one who sent this message? "Hi. I visited the cemetery in September of 2012. Every surviving headstone in the cemetery is posted for this cemetery, and a few of the surviving markers that are in the museum as well. I'm sorry that your person's headstone is not in the cemetery and not available to me to photograph."

Anne Chapman
Thank you so much for taking the photo of Anne Chapman's headstone. I really appreciate the info you gave to me from the Hale Index of Cemetery Inscriptions.

I had the birth date but the death date showed up on by other Family Tree info that she died in 1711 but now it is all pretty clear. Also that her husband was Benjamin Chapman is new for me. Great information.

Thank you so much.

Could you correct the typo on the small photo you took of her headstone.

It should be 4 May 2013. Thanks again.

Thanks for the high resolution pictures. Unfortunately, as is frequently the case with old tombstones, the aging of the stone and the light from the back makes it next to impossible to read. At least I have a copy and am grateful for your efforts.

Re: Joel Canfield (1712-1760)
As a interim, I have posted a Death Record listing for Joel. The photo, you mentioned, is for Joel (1712-1760) and Esther (1713-1769)'s son "Joel Canfield (9 Jun 1730-4 Jun 1808)", who already has a posted photo [ Joel Canfield - Memorial# 42293258 ]. If no further success, I'll cancel the photo request and leave the posted Death Record listing instead.

We are writing to let you know that a Find A Grave volunteer has reported a problem with your photo request for Joel Canfield.

The general problem they reported is:
Other problem

They also reported, specifically:
I have the photo for a Joel Canfield, husband of Esther, but dated 1808 as his death. There is no Joel Canfield buried there with a date of death of 1760, although Esther did die that year. Do you want me to post the photo?

RE: Nelson Hanks
Sorry...I don't have any further information on him...just went up to the cemetery for a photo request and took some random photos. I do know that the Hanks family were prominent citizens in the of them started the first silk spinning mill in I'm not sure how this Hanks fits into the mix. If you would like him transferred to you..just ask on the edit tab..since he is not a relative of mine.
Good luck with your genealogy,

Good morning,
Thank you for the photos of the four Fargo memorials. I did not realize that this would require that you go out in the snow. You are a real trooper to do this. I appreciate the time and effort so very much.
Have a blessed day,

Capt. Isaac Tryon

I am reseaching an ancestor of mine, Ezra Tryon, and trying to place him with a family - wondering if Isaac may be a brother?

Ezra was in the Rev. War - he signed up in 1777 at the age of 16 and stated his residence as Glastonbury, so I have been trying to match him up with any Tryons in that area.

Thanks for any help you maybe able to give.

Have changed birth location to Prussia. What was added came from a listing for this cemetery and have found every single list and burial log I've worked with (in the hundreds) is rife with errors!

Thank you for leaving me a message regarding my photo request for Allan Henderson. I was given the grave location and number by the archivist, but he did not mention the absence of markers. I appreciate your saving me months of waiting for a photo!

Hi Joseph, I'd love for you to post the interior shots of the Cemetery to John's memorial page and my e-mail address for anything else you care to send regarding John. Thanks so much for your generous offers, Esther Norton Malcolm

RE: John Norton
Thanks so very much for checking the Sailor Snug Harbor area for the grave of John Norton, my great grandfather. I've had contact with the Home and they said that there is no doubt that he is interred there but they feared entry would be a problem. Now I understand why. Did you take any photos of the area at all? I would be very grateful if you did and would post one to his memorial page. Thanks again, Sincerely, Esther

RE: John Whittlesey Grave, Saybrook
Several of my Rochester ancestors are buried at Mt. Hope. It's a lovely old Victorian-era cemetery, with many hills and valleys in the older sections.

Many of the tombstones in Mt. Hope have been photographed and posted by Mt. Hope itself. Try calling the cemetery office and asking if they have someone that could photograph the stones and post them to your F-A-G memorials. I've found them very accommodating at the office. It's worth a shot. They also have a Friends of Mt. Hope -- that publishes a quarterly called "The Epitaph". Maybe the office could put you in touch with a "Friend" that could take the photos you wish to have.

I was in the Rochester area two weeks ago, and had hoped to visit the graves of my family there, but we ran out of time and had to head back to VA. :(

RE: John Whittlesey Grave, Saybrook
Thank you SO much for going by the Whittlesey grave on your way home from work!! That's above and beyond the call!!!

No, I haven't contacted the cemetery. Just saw the photo on Find-A-Grave today. I am curious about the Whittlesey Society. Guess I'll have to look into that. My great-grandmother was a Whittlesey. The Whittleseys moved from Saybrook to Newington to Litchfield Co. CT, to Stockbridge MA, and then one branch moved to Rochester, NY. I have two approved Rev War Patriots w/DAR from my Whittlesey line.

It bums me out that we visited Old Saybrook years ago, but long before Find-A-Grave came into being. I had no idea where to look for John's grave at the time. And it was right around the corner (from Mapquest) from the Lion Gardiner statue which we DID see. Next visit, I'll have to find old John.

Again, thank you so very much.

RE: John Whittlesey Grave, Saybrook
Thanks. I was just curious to know if there was any engraving in the shield. John Whittelsey/Whittlesey is one of my direct ancestors.
