I authorize anyone to use my Find a Grave images in Wikipedia or their own family research, under the creative commons attribution license cc-by-2.5, where the attribution is 'R.E.H.'."

Going forward, unless there is a compelling reason, I will only transfer listings of people someone knew closely, i.e. parent, child or close friend. I'm sorry, but someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people. I prefer you add one of my listings under your umbrella using the virtual cemetery feature at Find A Grave. If you have additional information, I will happily add it and list you as the contributor.

Also, please do not ask me add an obituary to a person's memorial. See Find A Grave policy below:

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
It is best to not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices from memorial records.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed.

RE: William Gibbons
Hello, sorry again about the mistake. here is suggested wording, based on this link (http://socialarchive.iath.virginia.edu/ark:/99166/w6rj6r84):

William Gibbons was born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1794 to Thomas Gibbons
1757-1826 and Ann Heyward. Thomas Gibbons was a successful lawyer and was
elected mayor of Savannah 4 times in succession. He owned plantations on the
banks of the Savannah River, and, after moving north to New Jersey, became
involved in the business of steamboat transportation. His ownership of a ferry
from Elizabeth Point to New York put him at odds with the ferry operator, Aaron
Ogden, whose steamboat had been granted exclusive rights to these waters by the
state of New York. Aaron Ogden sued Thomas Gibbons, and in the Supreme Court
case of 1824 Gibbons vs. Ogden, Thomas Gibbons won, with the result that no one
could have a monopoly of interstate waters.

William Gibbons attended the College of New Jersey later Princeton, but
discontinued his education early to assist his father with the operation of the
Georgia plantations. Thomas Gibbons willed virtually all of his land, property,
and businesses to William after his death in May 1826. William married Abigail
Louisa Taintor 1791-1844 in 1826 and had four children: Isabel, Caroline
Gilmour, Sarah Taintor, and William Heyward. Like his father, he purchased land
in New Jersey and moved there with his family, placing the operation of the one
of the Georgia plantations in the hands of William Dunham. William Gibbons
funded the building of a mansion for his wife now Mead Hall at Drew University,
the Morris County House, and the United States Hotel in Morristown. He managed
the operation of his father's steamboat business until 1829, offered financial
assistance to the publishing of at least one newspaper, and was interested in
horse breeding and racing.

HANGED FOR MURDERING HIS SON

Hackensack, New Jersey, December 19 - John Myers Doremus was hanged this morning in the corridor of the Bergen County jail for the murder of his son, John Bogert Doremus, June 16. On the day of the murder Doremus returned from work and began to abuse his wife. His son John Bogert Doremus remonstrated. The elder man picked up a carving knife from the table and plunged it up to the hilt through his son's heart.

Hi Rich,
Do you have any more information on memorial #8862768, Marie Horan Byrnes? She was my grandmother's sister and I'm hoping to find information on my grandmother's family. Much thanks!

Charles Torpey 6021972
Hi. This cemetery doesn't exist. There is a St Patricks in Delmar Iowa, but I checked and there is no Charles Torpey there. The cemetery in Charlotte is actually named Assumption. He is not listed there either. I just finished uploading photos to all of the stones in Delmar and Charlotte and accidentally put some in here also (and deleted them). I have notified the originator of the other listings here to remove them and this cemetery. I grew up nearby and am related to most all of them via our early Irish settlers, and went to many celebrations at these churches.
Thank you. Kate
