Bio and Links
Bio Photo I think that find a grave is a wonderful way for historians, genealogist and cemetery preservationists to combine efforts for everyone's benefit. I have found members of my family tree because of the efforts of those recording cemetery stones as memorials on this site. To those individuals, I am very grateful:-)

RE: Swartwout
Hi Melissa,

Wonderful document, thanks so much for sharing. I have attached John Henry's parents to his page and added his first wife Ella Virginia Swartwout, his second cousin. John Henry had two other children, Ruth and Sally, and not sure about their last names. Ruth was adopted and my grandfather Roeloff and Sally were raised by aunts after their mother Agnes died and John Henry became too infirm to care for them. My email is if you have anything else to share.

Found your wonderful photos of Swartwout family members and wondering if you might have one of Satterlee Swartwout's younger brother John Henry Swartwout, born in 1849 and died in 1925. John Henry is my great grandfather and have been unable to find a photo of him. Thank you!

The correct photos have been uploaded for you to view on the Henry Serkes page. Sorry for the delay. We have also uploaded the death certificate if that is of any help with your research.

The grave marker for Henry Serkes has been fixed and is now standing as it should. As soon as the rain stops here and the stone has a chance to dry, I will reshoot it and let you know when I have uploaded the photo.

Henry Serkes (Find A Grave Memorial# 40578835)
I will be uploading the photo I was able to take of the back of the gravestone for Henry and Fannie Serkes. Unfortunately, the east edge of the support base for the large stone (and I assume the original footing for that base) has sunk at an angle. The large headstone has toppled forward off the base. It's lying face down directly on top of the 2 graves. So sorry :(

I will report this to the Cemetery management. This does not seem to be a human error or weather related. Just time has sunk the footing.

Samuel & Prudence Satterlee
Not the news you hoped for, but I visited the cemetery several times over the last 2 weeks and took several stabs at locating this Satterlee grave. I am pretty confident I looked at each stone in section 1 (that's the oldest section), and in the process, I photographed most of them and added them to Findagrave. William & Lucy are the only Satterlees I found.

I also spoke to the president of the cemetery association and the pastor of the church. they both tell me that there are no records or maps for this older section of the cemetery. The records were destroyed in a fire, and the only information we have is what is found in the compiled trascriptions that are posted on the internet. The oldest basis for these transcriptions was an 1878 survey published by C. Durkee.

This is cemetery where family members from multiple generations all with the same last name are buried together in long rows. Also, Samuel & Prudence are among the older burials in the cemetery, and the William & Lucy Satterlee stones are very close to the oldest stones in the cemetery.

All that being said, makes sense that Samuel & Prudence are likely in the area of this photo, near William & Lucy Satterlee. There are many "open" spaces which are probably stones that are fallen/sunken/missing. There are also many stones in that immediate are that have fallen over, face-down.

I will be in that cemetery more in the future and will continue to look for the Satterlees. If I ever find them, I'll contact you.
