|I live about 20 miles west of NYC and am happy to look for nearby graves and cemeteries (at least when the weather cooperates)! I also work in downtown NY and can sometimes search there if I have time to spare. One day I will research my ancestors and make some requests of my own.|

|Kay Ennis||RE: Helena Price at Trinity|
Yes, the other grave is her husband, Michael. Thank you so much! It's very exciting to know that they are actually there. Their sons, Stephen and William, were buried there later, but were moved when the part of the cemetery they were buried in was apparently taken over for development.
|Kay Ennis||Helena Price|
Thank you very much for the photo of Helena Price's gravestone! I am totally blown away because I never thought anybody would really be able to find it! Helena Price was my 5th great-grandmother.
I see that the stones look very weathered; were you able to read her stone, or did you have to go by plot records as to location?
I know from searching for old gravestones how difficult it can be. I really appreciate your efforts!
Thank you for the photo. Happy New Year to you and your family.
|Barbara Samans||Jane Western grave|
Thanks so much. Her mom and two others I believe are buries there as well. Much appreciated
|Sunset||RE: Susan & Letitia Urquhart|
Yes, the historian found their names right away so they do have good records, just they aren't all accessible to the public on their website unfortunately. I'm going to leave the photo request up for now, with your problem reported message. I'll be going there sometime in the next year and if I can't find where I think they are, I'll remove the photo request. I've located people's graves where problems were reported so it's sometimes worth leaving them up.
Thank you for your effort :)

Thank you for researching Susan & Letitia. The online search engine for Trinity only lists names of people whose graves were visible when the list was made. It is highly likely that Susan & Letitia's graves are under the grass. The historian/curator was able to confirm over the phone (2 years ago) that they were in fact buried there, but said that either their graves aren't visible, or their remains may have eventually been taken to an ossuary to make room for others.
My hope is that rainfall or floods may uncover more graves including theirs. (Our family recently discovered such a gravestone in a Massachusetts cemetery, under 3" of dirt & grass. Now that relative has 2 stones!).
Unfortunately i do not know which corner Susan & her daughter were buried in, but after locating her husband's grave in a huge Petersburg, VA cemetery ~ right next to the little church building ~ I can imagine that they are located in a corner next to the church, as opposed to farther away. Susan's husband was a minister ordained through Trinity Church (St. Paul's Chapel).

|Danielle McCullers||RE: Angelica Church|
Success! I just found out on my own how to remove the request for Angelica Church. It has just been successfully removed. All I had to do was hit the link on my requests & there it was. Once again, thank you for the info on Angelica.
|Danielle McCullers||RE: Angelica Church|
Wow! I didn't know that! You know, Robert Fulton is also in the Livingston vault as well. Okay, I'll remove the request, but, I don't know how. I'll try, anyway. Thanks so much for your information. You're never too young or old to learn anything, and by golly this morning, I definitely learned something entirely new. Thanks again. Hope to correspond again with you, soon. Take care.
