Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired road construction engineering technician, having discovered my ancestry to early colonial America, with many ancestors involved with founding and preserving our great nation's legacies, I've acquired an interest and hobby of establishing, maintaining, and enhancing the knowledge of our cemeteries as honorable monumental artifacts, through which, and with the assistance of the information in findagrave.com, anyone in touch with their family histories, can also indulge it with ancestry information provided through this valuable website.

RE: Hezekiah Catlin photo request
You are welcome for the photo, glad to be of assistance. By the way, Hezekiah is my fourth great grandfather, hence, a personal stake in taking a good photo.

Thank you for the flower you left for him. It gave me additional information I need to make sure the memorial is as accurate as possible. It is sad to say but on the 1870 Mortality Schedule in Andalusia,Illinois they listed this man as basically a vagrant. After all he did for his country. They had just gotten to the area and no one knew them.

What a WONDERFUL surprise to read!
Hello there Bert!

What lovely lovely words of thanks to read this morning. YOU certainly did make my day!

Once in a while I will get intrigued by an 'off branch' of my family tree and do a bit of research into the individual.

With David A Catlin, I could not resist!

I was curious of what his relationship was to me when you sent the note...so I did a bit of research only to find that he is the paternal grandfather of the wife of a brother-in-law of my 2nd Great Aunt. I had to chuckle to myself when I saw the relationship...smiling. Now that is truly getting a bit off the main branch...wink!

But he was definitely an interesting character!

Schoonmaker in Fallsburg Cemetery
Alan, I think there is probably only one grave there (if it can be found). The below transcription is from GAB's records. It doesn't indicate that the parents are there.

SCHOONMAKER, Albert M., son of Marvin & Ruth SCHOONMAKER, d. 12 May 1872, ae 6 y, 10 m, 7 d

When I get done with Woodbourne Reformed, I was thinking of working on the Fallsburg cemetery.

You are very welcome, Bert. It was great seeing these stones in the sunshine instead of under the shadows of the trees. -Deb

RE: Lucinda Teller
Whoa! You really did clean it up!!!!! You went above and beyond Alan...thanks so much. I am just happy I noticed her sitting back there in another photo. I often wonder how cemeteries get updated given most don't keep or want to lend a master list by date. Would be an undaunting task to have to rewalk the whole cemetery. Bless people like you who do get out for those of use who can't. Have a great week Alan

Lucinda Teller
Hi there...I have been looking for the burial site for a Teller relative of mine for quite awhile. She should have been in Grahamsville, but I didn't find her on several sites. I was looking at James Teller one day thinking and got a notion to enlarge it and way in the back...yup there was my missing Lucinda. I added her in and put in a request for the headstone, but nobody has picked up on it yet. If you ever go back there again, could you please take a minute to take her picture?

This is James...way in back you clearly see Lucinda Teller if you enlarge it.

Thanks...Kathy

your brother's memorial
I just forwarded you your brother's memorial from an inactive contributor. You now may add the DOB and place the memorial into the correct cemetery.
Thanks
