I went to Evergreen today. I found the family plot. It turns out the the son of Robert and Elizabeth is a cemetery trustee. The plot is located in a very pretty, well kept part of the cemetery, on a hill. In my haste, i forgot to take pictures of the individual stones. I will go back, within a week, and complete the requests.There are several other burials in the plot.

I plan to go to Evergreen within a few days. I know where the grave is located. Just out of curiosity, are you related to the Rochelles ?

Binders @ Lakeview
Hi there - I noticed your photo requests for the three Binders at Lakeview. I wanted to mention that there's also another Binder in Lakeview records in case you'd like to add the memorial and request a photo of that one too. Here's the information:

Charles Franklin Binder
Date of death: 08/10/1965
Plot: Masonic Section, Lot 284

RE: Jonathan Grove in Princeton Baptist Church Cemetery
Hi Steve,

I've been trying to find all the graves at Penns Neck (Princeton Baptist) that are in Find A Grave but not photographed. Some are inside broken trees. I have 120 more to find but some are totally unreadable. Remember I found some people for you in Dutch Neck and East Windsor cemeteries. You must be related to all the founding families of Mercer County. Glad I could help.

RE: Bastedo in Greenwood Cemetery
You're welcome, Steve. I'm working one section at a time, photographing all headstones. This cemetery has about 65 thousand interments, so I guess I'll be there a long time.

Hope I can find more for you.

I have a spreadsheet of over 500 memorials more than I added manually. Tomorrow we hope to finish the photographing and finish the spreadsheet. I also have some memorials I need to rephotograph to hopefully pick up some extra information. Anyway, if you are still researching here, I could send you a copy of the spreadsheet up front. Don't know how long it takes to get findagrave to upload, plus it will take another length of time to actually add all the photos. So if you want a sneak peek, just let me know and I'll send you a copy of the submission.

RE: Smith-Todd in Pittsford Cemetery
My pleasure. There was some confusion (on my part), though, with regard to the Todds. I had originally reported a problem with Margaret Todd, which is accurate, as I could not find her in the stated plot. However, I had also reported success in finding Ira Todd and Carrie Todd, only to find out the Ira and Carrie I photographed were from a different generation. I didn't notice until I had already "fulfilled" the request for Ira, and by deleting the photo, there is also now no record or a photo request for him. Long story short (too late?), I was unable to find Ira (d1958), Carrie (d1967) or Margaret (d1962). I frequent that cemetery and will gladly go back and look again ...

Thanks (as always) Steve!

I have moved this interment to Ewing Church Cemetery, and would be grateful for your photo.

Happy Memorial Day!

No problem Steve; I see you have one other photo request; I'm still going through my photos of the day so hopefully that one was taken as well. If not, it's a cemetery I plan on returning to.

RE: Pickering in Somerset Hills
It's because of your persistence that we found it. The people in the cemetery office have generally been very helpful. The next time I'm at that cemetery, I'll ask them to update their records on Francis so the next time someone is looking for her, she will be easier to find. I'm very happy that I could help you find what you were looking for. Rhonda

Hi Steve,

I'm so glad you like Luther's photo. I guess I taught Keri well. She is my daughter! :) I looked for your request for there. No luck on the one you're looking for, but I found a Herbert W 1911-1993 & Margaret B 1912-2000 Conover. They have no memorials. I'll await your reply.

Be well
Nora :)

I have filled the request for Luther and I see that his 2nd wife is June. I see no memorial for her, so if you'd like to create one, I was able to get her picture as well.

BTW I am scaling back my findagrave activities for a while while I prepare to move, so if you get a few transfers, don't be surprised.

Hi Steve,

Yes..seems like old times. It was a great day for fulfilling requests. Even found quite a few in Old Brick that had been on the list for awhile now.

I'll be in touch via email.
Bye for now

FYI..I also finished out the Hobart line with Henry.

I asked Rob to make this David, since other records also indicate he is buried there and i can't find a "B" that matches the dates.

I see you've been busy. Thanks for the photos and edits. FYI you can now do links in the new edit system :)

RE: Kline in New Somerville
I know - I was positively envious when I saw it! I only posted the Kline to John Jacob, and the Voorhees to Truth, but please let me know if you'd want them both posted on both, and on Voorhees Kline's page too.

You're very welcome!

George Black & Family
I'm glad these memorials and photos have helped you with family information. These 4 stones are the only Blacks in the area, and no other stones around are similar. I've seen the stones a number of times, but as you can see they are awfully difficult to photograph. This time the sun was at as good an angle as I've seen to allow them to be read.

I'm curious as to how you found them so quickly. I just put up the photos yesterday.

Happy to make additions and corrections, just send them along via Edit/suggest a correction.

Steve -
I've transferred his memorial to you. I'm not related to anyone in this cemetery; just posted what I could. The "1" to "4" is also not uncommon and many of the stones are generally difficult to read in this cemetery. I am local, so let me know if I can assist.
