Hi Frances,

Vacation was great my grandson lives in Alburqueque, so I was there to walk with him to the first day of first grade !

Please add all of your pictures to my memorials, even if there is another picture, different angles are always nice, and sometimes if the picture was posted years ago it's interesting to see how the years have aged them.

I love looking at your work, please let me know if there are any memorials you would like me to transfer to you, or if there are pictures you would like me to take for you !

Let me know if you ever venture to Humbolt or Pershing county, my long lost great, great uncle is buried somewhere out there, and what is such a shame is that his father and three brothers were stone masons, and all have nice tombstones he probably ended up in a unmarked grave or one with a wooden marker that faded in time. He died back in 1890. It took years for me to find him, no one ever knew what happened to him, I found a copy of his death certificate purely by accident online.

Take care my friend.

Love you and the work you do !

RE: Cole Family (Adelbert in Virgil, NY)
Hi Frances,

To answer your question directly, no -- the stones themselves don't give last names for Flora, Ella and Adelbert nor their relationships. From the placement it seemed pretty clear, though, that these 3 stones were meant as footstones for the larger Cole obelisk for John and Mary Ann Cole.

Adelbert does show as a child of John and Mary Ann in the 1870 census in Dryden, NY (adjacent to Virgil). In 1900 Adelbert is married to Ella in Harford, NY (also very close to Virgil) & in later censuses he is married to Florence/Flora in Harford, then Virgil.

Even better -- I just found a source that has obituaries for these 5 people. Please e-mail me when you get a chance and I can get them to you.

RE: Cole Family
You're welcome -- glad I could help. Next to the stones for Ella and Flora there was also a stone (in the same style) for Adelbert (1860-1942) .

RE: Lewis and Della Cole
You're welcome. I also added pictures for Eliza, Emanuel and Fred Cole that were on the same stone.

Hello, Frances,

The grave marker photo was my pleasure.

That's a tough cemetery to get great pictures at, as most of the markers are a little overgrown by grass and weeds.

All the best, Bill

According to the vital records, your birth info was wrong. I corrected it.
