Bio and Links
Mainly located in Ulster and Columbia Counties in New York.

Please do not request to add a birth date calculated from the gravestone, unless the complete age is known or listed (y/m/d). Dates that do not agree with stone and are not primary sourced will be placed in the bio section or declined.

For family links, please provide the correct memorial #'s for the link. Also, use the SAC feature.

Transfer requests must be submitted via a SAC and must provide the exact relationship and be within guidelines.
Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree outside guidelines is not grounds for a management transfer request. Transfer requests that do not include relationship to deceased or are out of guidelines are deleted.

Upon request, personal use of photos will be given with proper credit or a findagrave link.

Sorry, I had to remove my email as to many incomplete requests were being sent instead of using a SAC.

Is there any way to confirm the information you have found at Prospect Hill Cemetery, Columbia County, NY when the caretaker of the cemetery has no record of the deceased? I am not sure if there are gravestones. Do you use gravestones or written records for Find A Grave? Your information looks correct.

RE: Charlotte Audrey Gaertner Clark
Thank you so much for the prompt reply. I commented on the Carr marker, not as a criticism but as a query if the two graves were "connected" or just an optical illusion. I will contact the funeral home per your suggestion. This is wonderful work you are doing. Thank you again.

Charlotte Audrey Gaertner Clark
I am searching for this relative.
Mr. Saar, you posted listed a photo of a metal name marker (Charlotte Clark) which appears to be on a grave for Tammy Carr. Findagrave memorial number 20023066. Cemetery is Mt Pleasant (Mt Tremper, NY).

Can you or anyone else provide any more details on Mrs. Clark.

I apologize if I have reached out to you in the wrong context. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Please check your notes for Elizabeth Lockwood Van Velsan, #19254707, in the Coons Cemetery.

You quote the inscription as "aged 42" but in fact she appears in the 1850 census with her daughter Sarah Ann Winchell as age 72.
