|Bio and Links|
If I list someone you are related to, send me a note using the "EDIT tab," and I will transfer the page to you if I am not also descended from them. I will always follow Find A Grave rules and transfer with-in the generations stated. I usually go beyond this and will transfer older generations, if I am not also a descendant. However, if I have already completed extensive research on the person in question, by adding links, a biography etc, there is no need for a transfer. I myself use the great Find A Grave feature: Virtual Cemeteries. This is a wonderful way to keep track of family graves managed by others. |
I am happy to add additional sourced information to memorials and also happy to correct any errors I may have made. Please use the EDIT tab for corrections if you find an error in my research or if you wish to add information [I will give you credit by linking your profile page from the added info in the bio].
When you use the EDIT tab I am sent an email with a link to the memorial. This prevents confusion about which memorial is referenced.
Here is a great website for calculating the birth date from stones that list only death date and age at death. Or try this one.
THIS IS A CEMETERY
Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.
Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life; not death, of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.
A cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering, always.

|Panzyzz||RE: Isaac Smith: 39846395|
Finally found that link about Isaac's death.
Here is the link:
http://history.nnyln.org/cdm/ref/collection/p15004coll6/id/266. However, since the other sources say he was in the 1813 March, its confusing!

|Mountainbiker||Capt. Dietrich Huyett Follow-up|
I read the additional info you posted. Yes, you're spot on with his revised biography. I appears his parents are where the difference exist. I'll keep working on the good Captain's family and get back to you.
|Mountainbiker||Capt. Dietrich Huyett|
Do you give any credit to R.M. Bell and several other researchers that conclude Dietrich Huyett was actually the son of the German emigrant Franz Carl and Maria Quattelbaum and NOT the son of an Englishman from Connecticut? Dietrich was born 1751 in Exeter Township, Berks County, PA. Circumstantial evidence shows since brother Nicholas (Find A Grave Memorial# 8282054) was born 16 Dec 1753 and documented born in Exeter Township, plus tax records support Bell's research. I have not seen many researchers agreeing that "Walter Hewitt" and his wife (who was a "Dethick") as his namesake. To assume he was named for his wife's family as his first name and not his middle name? The "Stonington Hewit Family" is the lineage you cite in your memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 43537166). Just curious and I am really interested in the truth. From what I have read leads me to conclude Dietrich was indeed 2nd generation German and either himself or his family adopted the English "Hewitt" version of the family name later as the family commonly did. From the body of evidence, it appears that there are more researchers that agree with Raymond Bell that Dietrich was indeed the son of Maria and Franz Carl Huyett. To that end, I have rejected the "Stonington Hewit Family" version in my family tree and I am agreeing with Bell's research and others. Interestingly, the Quattelbaum family mentions her brother, Matthias, as living near Craven County (Newberry), SC, but no mention of Maria as his sister. The other siblings are all listed. How could one miss Maria's name? It is well documented that Franz Carl and Maria visited Matthias from Pennsylvania, and there are claims that "Franz Huiet" bought property there in 1769 -- but cannot prove the couple moved there. Captain Hewitt's widow, Elizabeth, was from Connecticut and the couple were married there. She is related to the Gallup Family of poll fame. They had three children -- and Elizabeth was pregnant with there last one when Dietrich was killed. I guess one will never know for sure who was this brave Captain Hewitt that gave his life for this country's independence.
|Karen Schebler||Miss Mae K. Hanson|
My name is Karen Keefe/Schebler. Stella Keefe and Susan Keefe of Dubuque, Iowa were my great aunts. When Susan passed away my mother received some of her memorabilia and when my mom died I inherited it. I just found in amongst them a prayer card for: Miss Mae K. Hanson.
I'm guessing one of my Aunts must have been friends with her. Stella and Susan never married and lived together in Dubuque. Both of them worked for Roshek's Department store in downtown Dubuque.
If you like I would be happy to give the card to you. Let me know and I'll snail mail it to you or send you it via e-mail.
I found you via Ancestry which lead me to Find A Grave of which I'm a member.
|Debbie||RE: Smith Graves at Green Mount|
Thank you for the quick reply. You'd be surprised how many people won't bother to call.
If I am the first one to get to Greenmount, I will gladly check for other Smith's. Most of the volunteers that go to Greenmount will thoroughly check the family plot for anyone else who may be related.
Have a great weekend.

|Debbie||Greenmount Cemetery - Baltimore|
Greenmount is now charging volunteers for plot information. When they recognized my voice yesterday, they said that after the first call with a request for up to two plot numbers, all future requests will need to be put in writing with a check included. So from this point forward, any request without a plot will most likely be ignored by local volunteers. If you could call and get this info for your requests, it will help get your requests filled.

I transferred Margaret and Michael to you. We do not know them, just photographed the cemetery. Enjoy! Marietta Miller
|Irv and Marietta||Michael Kearney|
I linked him to his mother Margaret. Thank you. Marietta Miller
|Barbara Scanlon||Margaret Kearney|
I linked John Kearney to his mother.
It is so interesting that we are finding that our ancestors knew each other!
