Bio Photo 2016 UPDATE - Due to health reasons, I am no longer able to continue contributing. Edits will still be processed usually on a weekly basis.

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 28 of 32. 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.

Cheers :)

William H Slade Sr.
Whoops, I apologize, I'm wrong about that. It was William Sr., not Jr. how married Virginia Stanley.

Hi. Thank you for your work on Find-A-Grave. Just one comment about William H. Slade Sr. He was not married to Virginia Stanley -- that was his son, William H. Slade Jr. See Iowa Marriage Records. Thank you.

RE: Winspear
Hi Kathi,
Thanks so much for all your work in recording graves and other info. Findagrave is such a great site with so much information thanks to people like you!
I took your advice and edited a little more on the dates of the Winspear children and Lucy's father, John Louis Kleeburg. I haven't found any death info on her mother, Dorthea Luzenhope Kleeburg.

Best Wishes,
Marcie Winspear Patch

Thank you for taking the photo of this lady. She was my great-grandfather's sister (Philip Hummell).
I am so excited to be able to add this stone photo to my tree.

Lancaster Rural Cemetery
I'll try contacting them again, but years ago the Cemetery Association sent me copies of their internment registers (can't find them now) for my Engler Family, including who was buried in which positions in the family plot. Could a similar thing exist for the Marquarts?

why do you think?
You posted a photo to John H. Heist's memorial of a worn stone next to Cuba's stone, but there is no indication this is for John H. Heist. Why do you think the stone is for John H. Heist?

Rufus L Fisk -Lancaster Rural Cemetery
I would like to Thank You for all your help and work when I requested a photo for findagrave # 152606120 I requested in Dec 2015. I had to send a different amount for the certificate in January so it was delayed.
send me an email where to send you a copy, if you could add it to Rufus Fisk info I would appreciate it, I live in Florida
It states place of burial: Lancaster, New York.
He wasn't Catholic so I think since he's listed at Lancaster Rural Cemetery he might not have a headstone.
Thank You

It is still my hope that someone will be able to take a rubbing of this stone to establish information that is currently unknown. That information will be extremely helpful in making good conclusions about this person.
