Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello Everyone!
My philosophy is that the memorials for people unrelated to me are meant to be shared & given away to any close family member willing to maintain their family member's memorial page, make corrections, keep an ongoing commitment to this website & genealogy, etc. Though I may not always be available, please let me know if you'd like a transfer done (see below). I will get to it as soon as I can.
If you have suggestions or corrections, additional biographical information, relationships you'd like added to a memorial, I am happy to hear from you--I can add these changes for you if you don't wish to own the page. Please feel free to add appropriate photos and flowers anytime! Please, no post-mortem photos or photos (or names in obituaries, etc) of the living.

MAKING TRANSFERS: The best way to suggest corrections or ask for a transfer of management is to go to "edit" for that person's memorial page and send me an email under suggestions and comments. That way I can more easily get your message and your id number, etc--the switch will be done more quickly.

Have a Wonderful Time on Findagrave! It's truly the best help I've had in decades of research.

Best Wishes,

RE: Mrs Colton's Photos
Hi, You're very welcome. I ask for a plot map if one is available for those that are requested because it is an old cemetery. I knew right where to go as I had photographed the Carl's and William's monuments that were there. So the flowers are an approximate location for her...but in the open space that surrounds the flowers. I've been told that if family wants to, a marker can be placed if they want to purchase one. Vera Carl Burlingame is in the same area too and I've asked the owner of her site to move her to the Old Tacoma Cemetery. She doesn't have a marker either.

Take care.

Hollister Graves in Calgary, AB
You're more then welcome for the photos I took today; I always enjoy my walks through the Cemetery I live so close to. The only other Hollister that the Calgary Cemetery office has record of is Francis Hollister buried in the Union Cemetery (Memorial #133819630)
Good Luck,

RE: The Hollisters in New Marlborough Cem
You are very welcome! All of the Hollister headstones are located in the right corner as you enter the cemetery. The only one legible is the main family monument. Rachel's headstone may be in better shape because it is lying face down but slightly off the ground. Hiram and George's headstones only show parts of their names.I didn't see Andrew's but hope to get back there soon. It is a beautiful area. JIM

Fishbeck Vault, Lakeview Cemetery
I have been doing more research on the vault and found the information I first gave you was incorrect. Take a look at the bio and see what you think.

I was wondering if you could remove the picture you have posted, I installed one the I think shows the vault better.

I also want to share more information about the connection between the Meyer's and the Fishbeck's and that will come a little later.

RE: Hawken and Stake plot
Yes, the illegible stone is the same size as that of the 3 year old. My impression was that it is another child. There are however, some stones in other plots that are this size for adults(not the case in this plot). My best guess based on the location and size of the stone is that it could be a child of either Elizabeth Hawken OR Adaline Oster(see arrangement of stones from left to right on previous message).
I think that if it is one of Elizabeth Hawkens children, they died after the 3 year old(based on location).
The stones in this cemetery have all weathered at different rates. Some more recent stones are barely readable while other stones of same dates or even many years older are able to be read easily. I don't know that being the most worn stone means it is an older stone in this case.

Thanks for the history of these stones. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

The Cargills in Laurel Hill Cemetery
Answers for everyone except Ira ...

First off, whoever paid for the bronze plaque and attached it, didn't dig very deep to find the correct information to put on the plaque.

The data used by Ty to create the memorial for Sarah is correct. Sarah Elvira Cargill daughter of Richard Cargill was born on 17 Nov 1848 and died on 19 May 1896 in Deposit, Delaware Co, NY of Pulmonary Tuberculosis, aged 47 Years 6 Months 2 Days; according to the Deposit Town Clerks Records and she buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery, burial permit on file.

Mabel's memorial is correct according to the burial records at the Deposit Town Clerks Office.

Violet Eleanor Cargill was a daughter of Ira & Sarah and was born on 10 Jul 1893 and died on 13 Nov 1893 in Deposit, Delaware Co, NY aged only 4 Months 3 Days of also of Pulmonary Tuberculosis according to the Deposit Town Clerks Records and she buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery.

Since Ira supposedly died in Guilford, Chenango Co, NY, the death certificate would say where he was buried. There is however no burial permit on record for him with the Deposit Town Clerk or the cemetery.

RE: The Cargills in Laurel Grove Cemetery
FYI ... It is Laurel Hill Cemetery, not Laurel Grove.

No it is not a practice to place bronze markers on older worn stones, but I have had stones re-carved or now monument makers are using some sort of paint or stain in the carved lettering ... I have seen it in black and gold.

As I stated in my previous message, the other three sides are completely blank and no sign that there was ever any inscription on them.

The only other Cargill we have a record of besides Mabel is a Violet Eleanor Cargill who died in 1893, but I haven't come across her stone as of yet. I'm in town for two more weeks before I have to go back to Los Angeles for two months and I hope to be able to get a several more days in at the cemetery, between working on my house, before I go.

I'll keep you informed if I find anything.

RE: The Cargills in Laurel Grove Cemetery
I was just in the cemetery for four hours today cleaning more stones and I went to the Cargill stone to verify what I believed to be true. I don't want to burst your bubble, but there is no stone for Ira or Sarah ... the diminutive obelisk on which someone has affixed the small bronze marker only has Mabel on it. The other three sides are completely blank and no sign that there was ever any inscription on them.

I am working with the current caretaker and board on getting all the records computerized and onto Find-A-Grave. As of yet, the only record of we can find regarding Ira or Sarah is that on Mabel's marker and it reads "Dau of Ira & Sarah CARGILL"

We have entered all the paper records we have and will continue the individual cleaning, reading and photographing of every stone, and perhaps something with come up. I will check tomorrow with the Town Clerk of Deposit and see if she has any record of burial for either of them.

She is buried one grave away from Tellis McCormick. I posted photos as well. Not sure if related. James
