No on the plot location. Info is from newspaper. They are very helpful at that cemetery if you want to call.

walnut grove Cemetery
the plaque at the cemetery states that it is East Church Cemetery. Is there a reason that you are calling it Walnut Grove? I leave on Church St. and was interested in taking some pictures...

Re: Photo request for Benjamin Rolla 1842
Attached is a copy of the problem report I submitted on this photo request:

According to the Mt Hope Interment Records (, Benjamin Rolla died in 1842 at the of age 36 of dropsy and was buried in St Patrick's Cemetery.

This site gives a detailed explanation: but the gist of it is that in the mid-1800s, the Mt Hope Interment Records were used to record all burials in the city of Rochester, including those at other cemeteries. St Patrick's Cemetery is a now-defunct cemetery, with most of the remains having supposedly been moved to Holy Sepulchre Cemetery where there is a general memorial for all of the removals from St. Patrick's. (You can see a picture of that on Memorial #31976547 for Bridget Agan and could ask Judy Williams, the volunteer who posted it, to do the same for Benjamin Rolla if you want.)

RE: John & Elizabeth O'Shaunghnessy
I rather doubt your O'Shaughnessy family is related to mine, but... who knows. Garrett married my great great grandmother Catherine (Smith) Forrester, after her first husband, my gggf, William Forrester died. William died in 1851, either just before or just after my great grandmother was born. The Forresters were from Dublin, Ireland. Sometime after William died, my gggm married Garrett O'Shaughnessy. They had a daughter Mary. Garrett was a member of the IRB (forerunner of the IRA). Due to some troubles Garrett got into because of that, they fled Ireland, and came here. They lived in NYC, where Garrett worked as an Iron Moulderer. I don't know any of the details of his death, other than, on Sept. 30, 1898, he supposedly committed suicide, by swalling carbolic acid! As my gg grandmother died only 10 years later, nobody in the family ever really talked about thime, so, I have no idea if he had any brothers who came over, or any other relatives. His and my gg grandmother's daughter Mary first married a man named Armstrong (can't remember his first name at the moment), then after he passed, she married George C. Miller, and they lived in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. There are some descendants living yet, however, they know nothing further about the family either. If you find out that our O'Shaughnessys are related, please do let me know! Thanks, and YW for the transfer!

Your welcome. It is always nice to help someone see their ancestors final resting place they may be able to see for themselves.

RE: Secor
You're welcome! Are you a descendent of John Jacob Aster Secor? He is my third great grandfather.

John & Elizabeth O'Shaunghnessy
My pleasure to transfer your great-grandparents' memorials over to you. They wouldn't somehow be related to Garrett and Katherine O'Shaughnessy, who are buried in the same cemetery, would they? Katherine was my great great grandmother. Garrett was her second husband.

Walnut Grove
I had a folder on my PC with images from this cemetery I could not readily attribute to a memorial I created. I added over 250 memorials to Walnut Grove from an old 1930's transcript. Unfortunately some of the headstones/markers that were clear enough to read at that time are no longer or perhaps have sunk out of sight. I just filled 7 of those photo requests. It seems there are 61 memorials without a photo at this point.

Walnut Grove Cem.
I thought I would drop you a message and explain my gazillion edits. I photographed the entire cemetery this weekend, even checking the wall (where I sometimes find discarded broken stones). My edits are strictly for what is on the headstone/monument and if you pull up the profile you will see a close up photo (in the case where perhaps you didn't have a date or it was off a bit) of what it actually reads. The sun that day was pristine and hitting nearly every stone perfectly. Some of your photos were taken on a darker day or later in the afternoon, those older stones are SO hard to read if not completely illuminated. Thanks! Jim

RE: Hattie White
You're welcomed & right, Trim: the unmarked are always a challenge for me, too, but greater satisfaction to eventually find where they are...exactly, when possible, is the best ~ and good to let them know they were not forgotten!

Thank you so much for the stone photos on the Bedard(s)... they are my neighbors parents and there was little information on them on Find A Grave... the photos are always a huge addition.

Eliza Secor photo request.
Hi, Trim. Could your Eliza Secor (Memorial #5134260)in the Ladentown Cemetery be the Eliza Secor (Memorial# 82086537)buried in the nearby Secor/Herring Diltz Road Cemetery?

Her DOD and age match, and the two cemeteries are frequently mixed up. does not have an Eliza Secor in their list for Ladentown Cemetery ( ) and I myself saw and photographed the stone in the Diltz Road cemetery.

Emma Rolla
Just took the picture for Emma Rolla for you. We purchased our home in 1987, just around the corner from the cemetery from Emma and Tony. The address of the home is 79 School Street (The deed has it as Prospect St.) It was a family home of Emma's (Rogalewski) they had lifetime tenancy but chose to go to the elderly housing (Campawonk) in Hatfield at that time.
