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.

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."

Giuseppe Verdi
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?
Thank you.

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.
-Thank you.

Ellis and Huldah (Kent) Bloomfield
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!

James Croft, Revolutionary Soldier (Vancourtlandville Cemetery, Westchester County, NY)
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".

Hi Dan: "thanks and yes you can take the information from my memorial for Elizabeth. Please let me know when this is done and I will delete my duplicate. Also, their son the Rt Rev Richard Channing Moore #15009561, needs to be linked to Thomas and Elizabeth".

RE: Biographical information
Dan:
Thanks for adding the edits and biographical information. I see that you have a special interest in the graves of veterans of the Revolution. Since there is no existing marker for David Baker I have sent an e-mail to the organization which is the Friends of the Battle of Brandywine requesting that they take a photo of the Brandywine Battlefield historical marker and send it to me so I can post it on David Baker's memorial page. I do not want to copy an existing photo of this marker which appears on the internet as this would violate the rules of findagrave.com. For a number of years I did Revolutionary War reenacting and was a member of the Royal Welch Fusiliers reenactment group. I am a bit old for that kind of activity now but I still maintain a strong interest in Revolutionary War history. Many thanks, Eric Baker

Biographical information
Hello: I have sent to your e-mail account some biographical information regarding David Baker who died in Morristown in 1835. I have also sent some other edits.
On another note I have enjoyed reading your biographical information of famous persons such as Richard Somers.

Many thanks,
Eric Baker
