Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Beacon NY, and still live here.My moms fathers family came from Ramapo Rockland county NY. Their last name was Cable or sometimes spelled Cabell. Her mothers maiden name was Hickey,they were from the Beacon area.Until I started to research my family history, I thought the Ostranders my dads family were from Peekskill NY Westchester co.That is where my dad grew up. I found out that they were from Ulster co and Orange counties in NY, the area from Kingston to Newburgh.After joining find a grave I also became a member of the Ostrander family association.I bought the hard cover book "Ostrander" a Genealogical Record which has been a great help in my research along with the information from all you people on find a grave.The funny thing is, at one point my in laws lived in Modena NY,where many of the Ostranders are buried.I hope to this year,with my wife and sister,take a field trip to some of those places.Im an hour away from Kingston and half that from Modena.I would just like to thank all of you for your effort and information you provided, it keeps me searching for more.Please feel free to use any of my photos

Hi Doug, Sorry I forgot to include that information, Katherine Romanczuk is in Old St Joachims Cemetery. Thanks so much.

Hi Doug
Thank you for your work. I found a relative from a branch of our family tree that we lost track of in our genealogy search. I would like to request being able to manage Katherine Romanczuk's memorial if you wouldn't mind. Thank you again for your selfless work.

Walker Memorials
Hi Doug,
Thanks for taking the pictures of the gravestones of my second cousin William Joseph Walker (Memorial# 118458788) and first cousin twice removed of George B. Walker (Memorial# 118513429) and his wife Emma M. Walker (Memorial# 118513487). It's funny as I was in Beacon early last October staying nearby for my college reunion and was just actually adjacent to St Luke's cemetery on Union St where George B Walker lived with his grandparents who are my great great-grandparents, George and Elizabeth Walker. I didn't think to look in the cemetery as I had looked at an on-line index which didn't have any Walkers listed but I recently looked and see that it was compiled in 1914 and your Find-a-Grave memorials weren't on-line then. I guess you didn't see a marker for my gggp perhaps they didn't have a stone grave marker as they died prior to 1914 and weren't on the 1914 list.
I wonder if you would consider transferring the memorials to my name as I'd like to add some family information and pictures to these memorials (and link to George's aunt, Mary Elizabeth Robinson Memorial# 21045108). Thanks.

RE: Redmond John and maery MacKinnon
Hi Doug, Thank you for all your help. I failed to mention Fanny (or Fannie) MacKinnon who was also a daughter of John and Julia and referenced in the Old Gravestones of Dutchess County. She died in 1882. Perhaps her gravestone is near her parents and siblings Mary and Redmond. This was a very large family which included Ignatius who was buried in Connecticut with his wife, and Leslie, my great grandfather, who was buried in New Jersey.

RE: MacKinnon Sisters
Doug, I will be happy to take over the management of the memorials for Julia, Pauline and Kathleen MacKinnon. Previously, memorials for their parents John MacKinnon and Julia Wiltsie MacKinnon, and siblings Mary and Redmond were transferred to me. They were created as McKinnon based on information from a book published in 1924, Old Gravestones of Dutchess County, NY by Poucher. Do you know if a gravestone still exits in the Saint Luke's Cemetery for John, Julia, Mary and Redmond? I will make all the connections after the memorials are transferred to me. Thank you and best regards, Carol
