|Bio and Links|
|A short walk through Trinity Churchyard in 2004 got me interested in older cemeteries. A few years later, I found it difficult to research my family geneology. I started adding names here to maybe help others with their research. I'm also a big Revolutionary War buff and I have been searching for graves of anyone who somehow participated in the Revolutionary War.|

|Mark Maxwell||Ephraim Seeley|
I have been notified that your entry is a duplicate of an entry I made 2 years prior. Also note, that I personally visited & photographed Ephrian Seeley's grave site in Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery, a couple miles north of Old Stone Church Cemetery, indicating your entry is not in the correct cemetery and should be deleted.
|Jay Led||Jane Minugh Memorial|
Thank you, Dan.
My now deceased mother and I tried to find this grave in person, many years ago, when I lived in Manhattan. How I wish she was still alive, so I could share this page with her.
Many of our ancestors, including Jane's parents, William and Abigail, lived in lower NYC in its earliest days. They were mainly seamen. One ancestor, John Minugh, was a harbor master, during the era of Cornelius Vanderbilt.
Our Minugh history in the USA is documented, all the way back to New Amsterdam. "Valentine's History of Old New York City" lists our family name among the Huguenots, who fled to America with the Dutch in the 1600's.

|Shelley Fleming||Thank you Dan|
for transferring my GGF James West to me.
Very appreciative of your time and dedication.
|Julia Kaiserjewelya||Samuel Pierson|
I am related to Samuel Pierson and can trace the lineage as far back as 1634. Samuel was a messenger for general George Washington during the battle of Monmouth. Samuel Pierson was a fine Horsman and a man of great courage and strength who Washington entrusted with several important and Perilous commissions in caring out one of these during the battle of Monmouth, Pierson was compelled to ride right in front of enemy lines of barrel and in full range of their guns; two horses were shot from under him, one of which in falling, injured the riders leg, but he was mounted on the third and carried out the commanders orders. Washington warmly commended him, and said "I feared when you set out with the orders that I should never see you again."
The write up says G Verdi died in 1901 in Italy and is buried there. How can it be listed that he is buried in Forest Lawn in Buffalo? This is a commemorative statue reinstalled from Kleinhan's Music Hall. Info is confusing. Are there more details available? Or shouldn't it be clarified re: burial status?

Hi Mr. Silva,
Thank you so much for the information on Reuben Fowler. I've added it to his memorial.
|TBarfield||Colonel John Banister|
Hi Dan, the image of the colored painting you have for Col. John Banister is often confused with Col. John, but it is actually a John Banister from Rhode Island and was painted by painter Gilbert Stuart. I just posted the real picture of Col. John Banister of Petersburg...my 5th great grandfather.

Good Morning Dan,
Would you be so kind as to add the picture that you have for Ellis Bloomfield in Old Colonial Cemetery to his wife Huldah Kent Bloomfield's memorial as well. She is # 143630961.
I'm working on attaching the family members from First Presbyterian up the road. Thanks do much!

I have added pertinent information for my ancestor James Croft on his memorial page. Your note spurred me to do this. (I was actually surprised that I hadn't done it before!) Thanks for the "nudge".
