Thank you soooo much for the photo showing that Esther IS there with Arvid! I am truly grateful. Esther was my Great Aunt and I was able to meet her once, when I was 13.

RE: Rachel Campbell Birch
I'm not sure if it will help or not, but my 3g grandfather was born in Feb. of 1779 and died june 8, 1833 so his stone will be much more weathered than Rachel's. Good luck and once again thank you so much for caring enough to help others get pictures of relatives resting place.

RE: George W Seitz
Yes, Becky please email it to me. Thank you so much! If I sponsor the memorial then I think it will let me add more photos and I can post it.

Rachel Campbell Birch headstone
Thank You so much for the photo of my 3g grandmother's headstone. Was just wondering if there was any evidence of her husband George Birch's headstone. My research shows that he is buried in that cemetery as well. I was contacted many months ago by an individual that said the cemetery was to grown up and they could not find any headstones for the Birch's. I was very pleasantly surprised to see the photo you added. Once again Thank You Very Much!

Thanks for the photo
Thanks for the photo of the headstone for Bion Mead and Elma Lloyd. If you see additional Lloyd family headstones in this cemetery I would appreciate photos. I'm a descendant of the Lloyds and I'd like to know if any additional relatives are buried here.

Transferred Abram and his wife to you. Family should be with family
Good luck on your search for the other Abram. One thing you might do is find out the date he was interred (he probably died 2-3 days prior to his death date, which will give you a starting point). You might also ask them if they have any information about what funeral home handled his funeral, or where his remains were shipped from. Some cemeteries have all sorts of information relatively easy to access. Others (especially the smaller ones), seem to be quite disorganized. If you have his interment date, but no other information, you can try the town/city clerk where he's buried and see if you can get a copy of the burial permit. In NY, you can't just bury a body, you need permission to do so. The burial permit will say where and when he died. If he died outside of NYS, you might be able to get a death certificate for him without waiting 50 years, or you might be able to find an obit for him.

Good luck to you. The search is half the fun

RE: Thank you
Did the person from stanfordville confirm he's buried there, or should I delete the memorial? Also, if this is your relative, I'd be happy to transfer his memorial to you.

I just realized you have to wait until Nov 24, 2014 to get the death certificate. For some unknown reason, NYS considers deaths to be top secret for 50 years. So the soonest you can get the death certificate is the 50th anniversary of his death. If you're still interested then, google New York State vital records death certificate and then click on "genealogy" and it will give you instructions and a pdf adobe form to fill out. Being New York State, you have to print the form out and snail mail it in with a check for $22 or whatever the fee is in 2014. Then you sit and twiddle your thumbs until the send it to you. It can take between a few weeks and six months. You have to love NYS. You can do the same thing via the clerk's office in the town in died in. Same price, takes less time, but you have to have the correct town, in this case the Town of Stanford if the obit is correct.

One of the things on the form says "certificate number". Ignore that. Even if you know it, ignore it. If you transpose a number, they'll send you the certificate with that number and a different name (really). Just fill in his name, date of death (write "about" before it), place of death (Dutchess county). FYI, if you're looking for someone who died in the 5 boroughs of NY City, you have to order it from NYC, as it's not held in Albany. So if the Abram Jayne who's buried in Nassau County died in NYC, his death certificate will be in the City, not in Albay.

Let me know if I have Abram buried in the right place, and if you want me to transfer him to you.

RE: Abram Jayne (stanford cemetery)
My best guess is that the newspaper listed the wrong cemetery in the obituary, where I got the information about where he is buried. Since there's actually a headstone picture from the other cemetery, I'd assume that was correct. I no longer have the original obit, but will look it up again as soon as I can. The Stanford cemetery is very small and rural, and it's hard as heck to get information from them. I don't know anything about the Nassau county cemetery. If you really want to know for sure if it's the same man, you can order a death certificate from NYS. This costs $22 dollars and you many wait months for it to actually get the certificate, but it should give the name of the cemetery he was buried in. If you want to do this, let me know and I'll tell you how to do it.

It's not all that unusual for newspapers to have the wrong cemetery listed.

Meanwhile, I'll put re-finding the obit on my list of things to do and get back to you. I'll leave my listing for Abram on findagrave at least until then.
