|Bio and Links|
I started working on my Family Tree when I was just ten years old. My mother's sister got me started, I think today she would be arrested for child endangerment. I was the only 10 year old in my neighborhood with a five drawer government issued gray filing cabinet filled with files of birth, marriage and death certificates, census reports and Civil War pension files. By high school I was skipping school to take the Metro bus into downtown Washington, DC to go to the National Archives to spend the day in a room filled with big gray manually operated microfilm machines scanning census reports one page at a time looking for my ancestors. We're talking the mid 70s, before indexes, computers, Family Tree Maker or Ancestry.com.|
I split my time between my homes in Los Angeles, California and Deposit, New York so I can do my historical and genealogical research.
I am very thankful for Find A Grave, all your entries have helped me greatly. I research not only my line but all the siblings of my line. As a British lady friend of mine so aptly put it, "your not doing your family tree darling, your doing the whole bloody forest!"
When I create a memorial, I research the individual and write a biography for them. Even when I am "doing the whole bloody cemetery!"
If I have made any errors in their history or have any typographical error, please let me know and I will gladly correct them. I am sure I have OCD and mistakes really bother me.

I've been looking through all of the Burrows graves you have listed in Pine Grove Cemetery. Thanks for so much information! I appreciate seeing the photos, as I haven't made it to that cemetery yet to take my own. You have Melissa's mother as Rachel LNU. I wanted to let you know that her last name was Pulver. The 1855 NY census lists Elisabeth Pulver as Henry Childs' mother-in-law.

Do you happen to know if William's father, David, was the David Moon (#51708694) married to Catherine Rhodes? Thanks so much, Sharon

Hi! Just so you know, I did not "rod" the ground probing for fallen over markers that might be buried. I have seen some veteran's markers laying on the ground at this cemetery, but they are usually trimmed around very nicely. See the memorial for Daniel G. Harrington at Oakridge - Glen Oak Cemetery for an example. Ace

You are very welcome.
Hi! In regards to your photo request, can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.
Oakridge-Glen Oak Cemetery: 708-344-5600
Oakridge-Glen Oak is a huge cemetery with well over 30,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there and take a photo of a grave. I go here regularly, and I should be able to take a picture shortly after receiving the grave location.
Thank you! Ace

I am researching now my information on James Kenyon from Delaware County, NY. I have this information for my James Kenyon, but now am doubtful because these people are from Broome County. Can you tell me if your James Kenyon has a son named Smith Kenyon from Davenport, Delaware, NY? If not, then all my information is wrong. Thanks so much - Ruth Van Alstine email@example.com
|Terri May||Sarah Elnora Early|
Sarah Elnora (Ellen) was my 2nd great grandmother. I am trying to figure out what her maiden name was. I can not find her in the 1850 census before she was married. In the 1860 census she is living with her husband, Wallace, in Scott township, Wayne County, PA. In the 1870 census she is in Sanford, Broome County, NY. In the 1880 census, she is back in Scott Township, Wayne County, PA where many of her husband's family lived.
In the 1880 census, her father is listed as born in PA and her mother as born in NY. Since Wallace and Ellen are both buried in Broome County, I am wondering if that is where her mother's family is from. Is there any way that you can tell me who is buried nearby to Wallace & Ellen? I am wondering if there might be any clues to her maiden name in that cemetery.
Any help would be appreciated!!
