Bio Photo "We actually don't fear death. We fear that no one will notice our absence, that we will disappear without a trace". (unknown)
People come to Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. People volunteer on Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. Sadly, some are in a contest to see how many memorial pages they can put in, mistakes and all, and they hold tight to those pages they've created even if they aren't related to them at all…for them it's all about the numbers.
My friend, Melinda Fowler, and I started doing this for our own families and then it quickly became something bigger…it was about other people's families. We have gotten such satisfaction out of fulfilling requests and everyone is so grateful. But it is "we" who are grateful for the opportunity to honor your relatives. We're not in this for the count, but for the gratification in connecting relatives and for recognizing the need to say "I WAS HERE".
p.s. I take a lot of random pictures in the Danbury, CT and Westchester County, New York area. If I should happen to run into your family and you would like to take ownership, by all means let me know and it's done. Families should stay together!

RE: the Esrays of Kensico
These Esrays are so distantly related to me, I think they are better served if you keep them. Thank you for erecting their memorials.

James McGlinchey
The civil war info posted on James is correct for the most part.The death date was off. City Directory of Danbury 1913 Shows Ann as Widow. Do you think I should add his Civil war record to this memorial.Do you ever get across th river to Nyack? Thank you agin.

RE: Potter Plot
I suppose I was hoping that there might be a grave marker with further information. Please do no more, you have been more than extremely helpful already, not least, you have saved me the cost of a trip to the graveside. Keep up the great work, Michael
