Bio and Links
Bio Photo Live in Maryland; summer in the Adirondacks. Write historical articles for Weekly Adirondack in Old Forge and appear on , am interested in Adirondack and Fulton Chain historical figures, of whom many are in Oneida and Lewis Counties and other NY cemeteries, many now inactive, often in obscure locations.

I work from my cemetery photos, then linking the graves through trees, and newspaper sites such as and I often contact ancestry trees to let them know I've found their family members, especially if I've used their trees to confirm or help link family members on findagrave.

There is always a chance for errors and happy finger typos. So please do not hesitate to let me know if you find something needing correcting, have more family connections or question the links I've made, using the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

If you find I've added a photo where one was already present, I often take photos to get the whole stone and a closeup for clarity or to get the family group of stones. If I find a photo of part of a stone and I have the entire stone , if the back of stone is shown without the front, I will add my own to the benefit of the memorial and the deceased's family who may not be able to go to that location.

In like manner, if someone has a better, clearer photo than mine, please add it and don't hesitate to ask me to remove mine. Please contact me and I will be glad to do so for this any other reason.

I don't add to existing photos to replicate what is there or to add to my statistics. If you believe mine repeats what you've added without additional benefit, please ask me to remove mine and I will do so promptly.

Rather than add memorials from listings, I add memorials from walking the cemetery and taking photos.

Anything I add to findagrave is intended to be used by you.

It has been awhile since you sent me multiple edits. This one was a piece of cake. Thank you for updating this family line. DBT

Hello, I submitted an edit request to add his complete places of birth and death and his date of death. The source was his obit that appeared in the Schenectady Gazette on April 22, 1935. Thanks for having created his obit. Paul Turner

Hi Charlie,
I hope all is well.
I've requested to have your photo request for Mr. Snyder removed from Lowville Cemetery as you've entered him in New Bremen. :)

Charlie - would you please do a correction for this memorial? You've got his mother listed under father and vice versa, so the gender / parents' names come up backwards. Thanks.

There seems to be some confusion here re:John Andrew Joslin. There seem to be 2 different memorials on Find A Grave - yours and #158027534 added by Patty Bilskey. On your memorial you have a birthdate of 1814 and dod 1863 aged 40. The stone appears to actually say 49 (which is mathematically correct) and Patty has an unknown dob. However, his civil war muster papers have him as 22 upon joining in 1862 which gives him a dob of 1840. I previously had a birthdate of 1831 but can not recall where that came from - lost most of my files when my computer died (because apparently I wasn't smart enough to back it up like I had been told to do several thousand times - ugh)
You and Patty do have the correct civil war unit though but I'm horribly confused. I have a copy of his muster papers for you to view but am unable to attach them here.
I am also sending this message to Patty and perhaps as a team we can figure out what is what here. You can email me at and I can send what info I have on him if you like.
Thank you in advance,
Lisa A Penree (Remp)

RE: thanks for the photo
Yes, we all did it before we learned to look at all sides.

RE: duplicate cemetery issue
Thanks. I'll wait a while to see how they do it but will go ahead and file your pictures, which are also appreciated.
