Bio Photo We live in the Adirondack-Sacandaga Region of upstate New York.

If you desire to add information to a bio, please do so through the "Edit" tab on the memorial's page or provide links to the memorial page that you desire to update.

Our pet projects are the Prospect Hill Cemetery, Northville, NY and the Mayfield Union Rural Cemetery, Mayfield Village, NY.

On May 26, 2015, we completed uploading photos of all of the stones in Prospect Hill Cemetery. The only stones not included on a memorial would be recent ones (2015 burials) which we will go back later this year to find and complete.

Fish House Cemetery
Good afternoon,
I need to ask a huge favor of you. If possible on your travels, would you be able to go by the Fish House Cemetery and see if you can find the graves of the Sullivan family? I recently learned they are in that cemetery instead of the South Main Street one in Northville. I would appreciate it so much.
Thanks, Jen Metcalf

Photo Permission Request (Arthur & Gladys Burns)
Dear Ben & Diane:

Arthur M. Burns is my first cousin. Here is a link to the memorial page that you graciously created for Arthur and his wife Gladys:

May I please have your permission to post the grave site picture that you took to my family's genealogy website? Both of you will be given full credit for the photo if you permit it.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Happy Holidays,

Wow, thanks for the quick work. Nice pictures of my cousin's marker. I like the fancy writing of their name across the stone.

Mom and Dad's memorials
Hi Ben and Diane,
I was wondering if you would transfer my parents memorials to me to manage. They are Claire and George Scunziano. Thanks for giving so much of your time to help so many others out there.

Brownell/Van Deursen need help
There are mysteries of dual identities surrounding Beulah (listed as spouse of Robert Van Deuren, Jr.), my maternal grandmother. The record I found on Ancestry lists two children whom I know belonged to Beulah Brownell-Thompson, and died in infancy. It lists their father (and Beulah's husband) as Robert C. Van Deursen, Jr. All four are buried in Prospect Hill Cemetery.
Can you confirm they were married?
Kindest regards,
