Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've enjoyed working on my family tree and helping others with their research for many years. I am a member of several genealogy organizations and the DAR. It's important to preserve the family history provided to us by cemeteries. Besides looking for my own family names, I also like to record military graves and the older headstones before they are no longer readable.

Anne Knickerbacker #59351175

I'm trying to help someone with their lineage who is a descendant of Anne Knickerbackers, and was wondering if it is possible to get scan of the original photo so I can try and clean it up to read the information on the tombstone. My email address

Thank you,

RE: Headstone photo
Thanks for the quick answer.
Yes I would love to add the photo of James and his wife to their pages on my site.
Here is James page :

If you prefer I can add your full name to the credit rather than just Marte.

Also if you have James plot location I would add it to his memorial.

Headstone photo
Thanks for your time in finding and posting James Edward Duffney's headstone photo (memorial 1613340930)
Would it be possible for me to use this photo in our family's genealogy web site? When allowed I always add a comment like :
Photo provided by Marte through the Find a Grave site at

I suspect that James's wife, Maude (Rayno) Duffney, is also buried there but having no document to validate this I did not create a memorial for her. If you ever go back to that cemetery could you pleae look around James's headstone if there is one for her as well.

Etta Hallenbeck Brown
Same request as for the Perry family. There are too many tombstone photos, so I can't upload a photo of Etta. Could you please remove one or two?

James S. Perry & Rachel A. Perry

I've recently found a photo of James & Rachel Perry and their three sons, Casper, Harrison, & Sanford). I'd like to upload it to the memorial, but there are already the maximum amount of photos there. Could you remove at least one tombstone photo from each? If so, please let me know at and I'll upload the family photo.

RE: Rebecca Bronk Benn
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the snippet of information about Rebecca Bronk Benn. From that information I was able to break down a brick wall in my genealogy and find that Rebecca and my great-grandmother, Rebecca's sister were step daughters of Peter Bronk. I was also able to go back another generation and finally confirm the name of their grandmother

RE: Rebecca Bronk Benn
Any chance you have the full text? Rebecca was my great-grandmother's sister and I have looked for years for more of her family.

saw this on find a grave but not quite sure if he is related. Do you know if he was related to Harringtons or Deuels in east greenbush? Thank you for any help you can give me.

RE: Henry and Effie Smith in Hillside Cemetery, Burnt Hills, NY
Hi, Marte,

You should have them!

Glad to see them back with family.

Take care.

Henry and Effie Smith in Hillside Cemetery, Burnt Hills, NY
Hi, Marte,

I hope you are doing well.

I got your edit to link Henry and Effie. I'll accept it as soon as I finish this note.

By any chance are you related to them? I am not, and would be happy to see these folks "go home." If you are related, and would like a transfer, just let me know.

Thanks for your interest in them and for taking the time to send the edit.

Take care.
