Most of my submissions are of relatives, or people related to my relatives. The exceptions are all of the Fort Steele submissions and some of the Billingstown and Cemetery submissions. Both cemeteries weren't covered in Find A Grave, so I submitted the entire list of burials for Fort Steele and a partial listing of the Billingstown gravestones that I photographed. I also photographed the graves of unrelated people in St. Joseph, Fort Hill, and Forest Home Cemeteries. If anyone can add photographs to memorials I've created, especially in New York, it would be greatly appreciated.

Wood Family
I just posted a picture of Franklin Woods memorial stone. It is a large monument that has his parents listed on one side, then on another side list a child on top and Franklin on the bottom. It states that the top child was a son who died in 1876 at the age of 11 yrs. Just thought you would like to know.

Fannie Koss
Just wanted you to know that I stumbled into Fannie Koss (42425962) at Kensico Cemetery in Valhalla, NY along with her husband, daughter and son-in-law. I've added Fannie's picture, added the memories for everyone else and connected them. Hope this helps!

Billingstown and Shearer Family

My name is Elaine and my husband Bob is the great grandson of Sarah Ellen Shearer Porter Mundy Matteson, He is therefore also related to all the Henry Shearer relatives buried in Billingstown, I have not done a complete history so may I ask how you are related? You and my husband may be 3rd or 4th cousins.
I see that you already have the family posted, so I will just add then to my virtual cemetery, Thank you for doing all the work !!!

In my research I found a listing of all burials (locations too) and a sort of who's who. When I get time I will check it out and see who is left to do. Would you want me to send you the listing so you can complete the cemetery? If not I will do it ... someday....

Zophar Deane

Oops, I see I double entered Zophar Deane at River Grove Cemetery in Leeds. Mine is spelled Zopher because that is according to the family genealogy. I live up the road at the Deane farm, and so Deanes are of interest to me. Are you a relative? Would you like to transfer yours to me (or delete yours). Or do you want to keep it, and I will delete mine?

Sarah Morrill and Jeremiah Hackett
Mary Shearer:

I saw your post from almost ten years ago about Sarah Morrill and Jeremiah Hackett on genforum. Then, I found the photo and information about Sarah on FindaGrave. I am wondering what progress you may have made on your research on them since then. I have a hunch that I have not been able to prove yet, that my third great grandfather, Hollis Sylvester Hackett, may be the son of Sarah Morrill and Jeremiah Hackett. On the 1871 census, Hollis Hackett and his wife Sophronia have an 81 year old (so it doesn't quite match either of
the dates you mention on FindaGrave, but it is close), woman named Sarah living with them.

Hollis lived in Ayer's Cliff, so it makes sense that the elderly Sarah Hackett would be buried in that cemetery. Also, Sarah is not recorded as living with Hollis on the 1881 census, which would make sense if she had just died. Further, I have an old family history sheet of my mother's that has no information on Hollis Hackett's parents except the name"Jeremiah" is scrawled in lightly with no further info---no dates, no sources, no proof of any kind.

However, it appears that she may have gotten some of her information from an elderly relative who has since died who had Hollis Hackett's family Bible. Unfortunately, we do not know who has the Bible now.

I notice that you show that Betsey Hackett Whipple's tombstone is next to Sarah Morrill Hackett's. Do you know whether Betsey is
Sarah Morrill's daughter? Her birthdate fits nicely with Hollis's. Also, I noticed in the Drouin records that Betsey's burial notice has J.F. and Mrs. J.F. McCoy written in the margins as witnesses. I believe that this is probably James Francis McCoy and his wife, Rosa Clara Alberta
Hackett. This would make sense if Sarah Morrill Hackett is the mother of both Betsey and Hollis because then Rosa and Betsey would be niece and Aunt. Rosa Hackett McCoy is the daughter of Hollis Hackett).

I notice that in the Canadian Census of 1881, Hollis's family is living in Hatley and they are recorded on the census sheet right next to a John
Hackett family. Do you know anything more about Sarah Morrill Hackett's son John? I would like to figure out whether the John Hackett on the 1881 census is the same John that was Sarah Morrill's son.

I tried to e-mail you, but e-mails both to the address you gave on genforum and to the victoria woodhull address listed on findagrave bounced back.

T. Herbert Morgan grave photo
I was so excited to see the photo of my great-grandfather's (Thomas Herbert Morgan) grave in Rosehill Cemetary and Mausoleum a couple of days ago that I became a member of Find a Grave. Are you, too, a descendant of his? If you are, are you aware that his son, Percy Seymour Morgan (22 Sept 1879 - 10 April 1900) is also buried at Rosehill? His wife, Mary Potwin Judd Morgan (5 May 1852 - 5 January 1942) may also be buried there, though I have yet to confirm it. Thank you for the posting of the photo.
