Bio Photo Please use Suggest a correction, I dont get on here like I used too and when I do I can fix them.

People have been submitted by spreadsheets over the years. Attempts have been made to eliminate living people and duplicates. If you believe a living person is included, you should submit proof to me via findagrave correction. Just because there is no date on a headstone does not mean someone is alive.

Google and other searches do not prove someone is alive, I can google many people in my tree that google would show to be well over 100 years old that I know in fact are dead.

Yes, I know there is an edit button no kidding. I will get to it as I can. Fortunately, I do not live on this site.

While I have thousands of memorials at Mt. Hope Cemetery in Rochester. They are all added based on the actual records in the office. In many cases these records only listed people as Mr. Ms, Miss. exc... I choose to leave these records as they are unless someone has added a headstone and the dates match the cemetery index I have in my posession.

Unfortunately I used to change them as unknown but I have learned over time people assume they are there family when in fact they are not and the dates do not match at all per the records of the cemetery.

Because of this reason it takes me some time to vent the record changes at this particular cemetery because I look each and every record up as time allows to ensure the accuracy.

Correction for Rose Cemetery Entry
Daryl thank for the work you've done in NY state. I believe my grandmother's name is recorded incorrectly. You have it as Adelaide M Bosze. I've not been to Rose or NY state since about 1971 and my grandmother died in May 1975. My dad handled her funeral arrangements. Her name her adult life was Adelaide Bosze and her social security account may have been registered as Adelade E Bosze, although she hated the "E" name she was given at birth. Her birth name was Emma Adelaide Wise and went by Adelaide Bosze after her marriage to my grandfather in 1921. The headstone for her, though. may have been engraved incorrectly.

Moses Power,# 109523566
Hi, Mr. VerStreate,
In your memorial #109523566 you have his wife as Elizabeth Whitman. Elizabeth was actually his mother; his father was also named Moses and lived from 1774 to 1866. I do not know where the senior Moses is buried, but I suspect near Farmington, Ontario county, New York, as that is the last place he lived. Arnold Power was the son of Moses Sr and Elizabeth, and the brother of Moses Jr.

Moses Jr married a woman named Chloe Turrell. They had 4 children: Israel Robert, Elzabeth, John L., and Winfield S.

Thank you for all the work you have done with these graves.

Lanterman family cemetary

Probably by now there are no stones left in this cemetary as there were only 4 stones found in 2013. There are a few photos of what was left of this cemetary at that time on this link as well as copies of the inscriptions copied in may 1953

Stafford cemetery
Will be passing through that way in a few weeks and was wondering if any of the Stafford cemetery was still there. Would like to just take pictures of the area if I could. Could you tell me where it is located?

Thanks...Sandra Stafford Schmidt

Charles E Upton
Daryl - I have compiled a substantial amount of information for Charles E. Upton, Find A Grave Memorial# 34120746, including dates, biographical information, photos, etc. I'd like to have some editing capability on his Find A Grave memorial so I can add these things myself - as you have thousands of managed memorials and don't get onto the site that often. Would you consider transferring the memorial to me for edit? After I'm finished I'd be happy to transfer back to you, as he is not a relative.

Asa Gardner
Daryl, The Asa Gardner in your records is likely the one in Mount Hope Records listed as Age 29, died of consumption, interred June 22, 1851. I am looking for a different Asa Gardner, who may or may not be his father and listing this Asa's birthdate as abt 1822 might help other researchers. Thanks so much for all the work you have done, I hope you know how very much it is appreciated. Sincerely, Karen Rich

Maria Durfee (1801-1882) Palmyra, NY.
Hello Daryl,
First, I want to thank you for your extensive work ... and in particular, for creating the Find-a-Grave memorials for several of my ancestors / relations buried at the Palmyra, NY. Cemetery (which I have recently visited for the first time ... spending all too brief a time). I have subsequently been doing some edits and have uploaded a few photos (and left "flowers") to certain or the memorials.

One edit that I would see being important to request you amend, is the father of my 4xGt Grandmother (Maria Durfee) ... not Gideon Durfee, but instead Pardon Durfee (1770-1828 ... memorial #86681476). And Maria's mother was Ruth Reeves (Memorial #86681477)... both of whom are buried in a nearby plot.

Kind regards,
Clive Orford
"Clive O."

Theodore Backus-memorial # 33823947
Hello Daryl,

I have been researching my Backus line in Conn., and have found that Theodore Backus is the son of Azel Backus, and father of Albert Backus according to the book The Pratt family: or, The descendants of Lieut. William Pratt, one of the first settlers of Hartford and Say-Brook, with genealogical notes of John Pratt, of Hartford; Peter Pratt, of Lyme; John Pratt (Taylor) of Say-Brook Conn. Azel had five children.
