Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Bedford -Stuyvesant Brooklyn in 1952.
I am presently a Missionary and Pastor in the Payatas area of the Philippines.

I would also like to make a statement. those of us who make these memorials for genealogy purposes feel a close connection with all our ancestors. When you refuse to transfer someone you do not have a connection, please know that you are depriving a family member of being the caretaker of that memorial. I would love to hear why some people do that.

I would think that everyone would want to transfer memorials to relatives. After all, they still get the credit for creating it and the relative can get contacts with family members seeking information. I have asked sometimes, those who have created memorials if they know anything about them and they did not. How much greater had a relative seeking to claim it would have received it and could share information.

RE: Borntrager
Hey no problem always ask, I still do, that is how we understand. Unmarked means there is no head stone/marker it is a private grave. Where your other relatives (the kids) they are in a mass grave (unmarked) in St. Albans section. Many cemeteries set aside so many graves for the poor as in Holy Cross a catholic person can still be buried in a catholic cem. and it is or was cheaper. Now pending your finances and your lineage to the owner of the plot (Cemetries have rules that govern this) you would be able to place a stone/marker on the private grave.

RE: Wilson
Not really sure - mother is 100% Russian from Harbin, China and my father was born in Shanghai, but family legend has that side coming through the Philippines from Spain (maybe early 19th century).

transferring memorials
I just want to say I agree with you about family members being able to maintain the memorials even if it is out of the guidelines. Some gravers are so possessive to the ridiculous point. I wonder if a few obtain a data base then create the memorial. Most are willing to transfer but others can give you a hard time. There is one graver who has created many memorials from death certificates, knows nothing about the people and tells me she is looking for a more direct relative. She will consider when I do a full bio with pictures. In the meantime I keep sending her corrections, to add info and many cases there the duplicates. She still refuses to transfer. It is impossible for some to adequately manage the memorial.

RE: Burton Clark
Yes, I am related. Burton Clark Sr. is my great grandfather's brother. How are you related? Burton Sr. is buried at Beck's Hill Cemetery in Vista or Lewisboro. I've been there and have seen the grave. It's across the street from a little brown church on rt. 123? The road that runs from NOrwalk to Ridgefield. I think I have it right. Do you have any photos of Burton? I would love to see what he looked liked and am willing to share information and photos. As I look at his memorial, I realize I need to add Florence. Do you know when and where she passed? Where is she buried? I would love to hear from you.

IT IS A PRACTICE THAT WIVES WERE NOT INSCRIBED ON HEAD STONES AT CYPRESS HILLS NATIONAL CEMETERY. YOU CAN CONTACT LONG ISLAND NATIONAL CEMETERY AND THEY COULD CHECK. THEY MAINTAIN THE RECORDS FOR CYPRESS HILLS NATIONAL. SHE IS LISTED ON THE VA NATIONWIDE GRAVE LOCATOR WITH HER HUSBAND. CHUCK
