|Bio and Links|
2012: I began photo-documenting and transcribing the oldest section of LANCASTER RURAL CEMETERY (Erie Co., NY). As of December 2015, I am up to Row 29 of 31. The stones left in this section are in VERY bad shape. Please refer to more info at the end if you have an interest in this cemetery. |
Sept. 2014: Transcribing and adding memorials for ALDEN EVERGREEN CEMETERY (Erie Co. NY). The oldest stones have now all been added. Nov. 2015; Ongoing for all remaining.
Nov. 2015: I have completed a full and thorough transcribing of every stone in ALDEN TOWN CEMETERY; an abandoned cemetery with numerous unmarked graves. All stones identified except two - added as "unknown" with photos.
I have limited data for St. Mary's R.C. Cemetery in Lancaster, Erie Co., NY

Transcribing/Documenting Lancaster Rural (Erie Co., New York): James Clark's Journal ~ The cemetery has burials (known and unknown) dating back to 1807, but no official cemetery record was kept until 1870. James Clark kept a journal with various names and dates of death/interment and other random info. This diary was used to create a typed transcript of the burials as noted by James Clark. It is the typed copy I am in possession of. It is by no means complete, refers to most females as "the wife of so-n-so" rather than by their own first name, and has many, many nuances and oddities.
There is no plot information, and often skips entire years if not two or three at a time in the earliest of years. It is however, an invaluable tool to have given the alternative of nothing.
I cross reference names using census & probate records, published genealogies, historic newspapers, and just about anything available to me. It's definitely a work in progress which I enjoy photographing and spending most of my free time working on.

I forgot to give my latest thanks. I really appreciate you giving me a heads up on your photo. I'll look for it. The request is in.

You do not need to explain how we know each other, Kathi. As soon as I saw you left a message for me my anticipation when nuts! You carry magic in your hands and heart. I am so blessed to have been a recipient. (You would not believe how many people now know our story.)
|George DeKay||Clara Welch|
I can definitely see the Welch name at the bottom now. Couldn't in the other photo so it may have been the lighting that improved the photo. I was hoping that a rubbing of the area of where the dates are located might tell us the years. Somehow I am seeing an 1840s date on one line so not sure if that is real or my imagination. The family were in Clarence on 1850 census but had moved west for 1860 census.
|Richard Arthur Fenner||Fenners|
Someone must added the photos between the time I requested and you tried to fill. Thank you anyway! Richard
|Gene Stephan||Stephan Photo|
Katherine, thanks for posting the photo I requested on Mem# 30165919. I finally sorted this out & determined that Howard was in error when he created this memorial so made the change necessary. If you would delete the photo & attache it to mem# 52961602 that would be the correct person in Grave #6 as you suggested. Your Hard Work is Much appreciated, Gene Stephan
|George DeKay||Clarence Fillmore Cemetery|
You originally created a memorial for Clara Shafer in this cemetery and had it transferred to me.
You added a stone photo to the memorial but the information has disappeared except for the name Clara L. We originally thought she was the daughter of Adam and Catherine Shafer, but I now have my doubts about that. That daughter was Clara J.
I contacted David Pohl, the keeper of the cemetery records, and he tells me that this stone is on the Welch plot, not Shafer which is the plot to the north of this stone.
It is possible that the Shafer daughter married into the Welch family but at this point there is no proof. I believe the photo and likely the memorial should be removed so we don't confuse future researchers on this family. However I can't delete the memorial as it is partnered with you. Using the surname Shafer on the memorial is likely a bad idea.
However to begin it would likely be best to remove the photo.
Any suggestions on this dilemma?

Thanks so much for the photos for the Aldingers. I very much appreciate it! Sara
Dear Katherine, Thank you so much for uncovering the stone! I just now sent a request for a photo (which I assume would be posted to the site). Thank you for agreeing to forward me the written record. Is there a way for the public to access it, or is it otherwise private? Is there a way to determine how the bodies were arranged, side by side, or whatever? Thank you, John
|John Ozment||RE: Leabrenze|
