Bio Photo What would you do when your future husband takes you to meet his peeps? ...

...AND they are in a cemetery!?

How about Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Tarrytown, NY? And you are still there 15 minutes before the cemetery gates get locked for the night!

Needless to say, I said, "Honey, if you don't want to hear me *itch for the next 12 hours you had better wrap it up and get me out of here".

On the way up the Route 9 as the gates close behind us after spending the afternoon cleaning up his family's plot his phone gets a txt from an unknown number saying "Thank you so much for coming :)".
Well I was hooked and married him the next year. He has since taken me to more cemeteries than I can count.
We now volunteer with "The Friends Of Mount Moriah Cemetery" on a regular basis. Between Us we have over 30 people interred there.

We have requested photo's for our family at FAG and think it is only fair to pay it back or forward.
Namaste friend, may you find all of your relatives, with more information on the headstones than what you already knew.

Cox Markers at Fernwood
Thank you very much for taking the time to attempt to photograph the markers for George & Catharine Cox (Section 42, Lot 306).
Unfortunately, it appears that you've confirmed stories I've heard about Fernwood since the time of my grandfather.
Fernwood seems to encourage markers to fall over and, once they topple, likes to bury them in order to make their maintenance of the cemetery grounds easier.
My grandfather often irritated the Fernwood staff by digging the markers back up during his visits to family graves.

Thank you for your efforts. I know it is so hard to find places when there are no monuments. This has been a long search for me and your help has been enormous.

Hello,
I am sorry, but he does not have a headstone. The only known stone, yes only one, has been added to Find a Grave.

Please the caption for the photo.

Thanks
