Bio Photo I live in Western New York.I have been researching my ancestors for several years. I became interested in Find A Grave while searching for my family's final resting places. I enjoy photographing cemeteries to record the information before it is lost to time. I especially enjoy connecting people with their families.I will be happy to transfer a memorial I have created to a family member.

RE: Corporal Israel Mead, Co. E, 169th N.Y. Infantry Regiment

Hi Donna,

I'm not sure. Can you re-send? The Israel Mead at Woodlawn did not serve in the 169th N.Y. That is a different Israel Mead.


Cheers,

- Steve Wiezbicki, Historian of the 169th N.Y.

Thank you for the time and effort you spent getting the pictures of these headstones for me. I greatly appreciate your work. I hope you don't mind if I use these in my genealogy work.
Happy Independence Day,

Corporal Israel Mead, Co. E, 169th N.Y. Infantry Regiment

Hi Donna, thank you for your reply. Your message raised some questions for clarity, however, and I was wondering if you would kindly elaborate on it for me? I do not wish to try to guess what you meant or make any assumptions.

You wrote:

"RE: Israel Mead, Woodlawn Cemetery, Wellsville, Allegany County, N.Y., Plot A68
Hi Steven, I was at the cemetery cemetery today and could not locate any indication of military service. Sorry. Donna"

1.) Did you go to Woodlawn Cemetery, Wellsville, Allegany County, N.Y., and go to Israel's grave at plot A-68?

2.) Did you examine both gravestones, including the individual marker for Israel Mead as well as the family monument?

3.) Were you looking for an inscription with the following wording: "Co E 169th Inf Reg NY"? The Find A Grave memorial for Israel says that this inscription is there:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=41942048

4.) If you did all of these things, yet found no inscription, what do you think is a possible reason for it being listed on Israel's memorial by the memorial's creator?

5.) Is there a cemetery office or other source of cemetery records that could be checked?

I sent a message to the memorial creator, "Tombstone Tourist," and find that this individual manages 26,122 memorials, so I have no expectations that my inquiry will even receive a reply.


Thank you,

- Steven Wiezbicki, Historian of the 169th N.Y.

Israel Mead, Woodlawn Cemetery, Wellsville, Allegany County, N.Y., Plot A68

Hi Donna,

I was wondering if you may be able to help solve a mystery for me?

There are two Find A Grave memorials for Israel Mead, Woodlawn Cemetery, Wellsville, Allegany County, N.Y., Plot A68. You submitted photographs of the gravestones for the first memorial:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=41942048

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=68939246

The first memorial claims that there is an inscription which reads, "Co E 169th Inf Reg NY." Can you verify that the inscription is there, and submit a photo of it to his memorial if that is the case?


Thanks!

- Steve Wiezbicki, Historian of the 169th N.Y.

RE: William Allen Greenwood Cemetery
Donna thanks for the offer however I generally have other things that I am doing. I can say however that a lot of my Allen kin are in this cemetery - my grandparents (Wm. D & Marguerite Allen) I use to hang around the WU town clerks office. My married name then was Cwiklinski.
