Bio and Links
Bio Photo I work part time and enjoy going to cemeteries and hopefully I'm preserving someones' family history. I am in Sullivan County, NY and just recently started going to cemeteries and taking as many pictures of headstones and adding them to this great site. If there is anyone that wants me to take pictures in the Callicoon, Hortonville, Jeffersonville, North Branch, Liberty, White Sulphur Springs, Youngsville, Livingston Manor, Roscoe area...just let me know. I've been in a very old cemetery and lots of the inscriptions are almost gone...I find my searching very comforting knowing that I'm getting family history for someone! Feel free to contact me! HAPPY HUNTING!!! Holly
Names I'm researching:
In USA BOSSLEY/WYLAM/HUGGLER/ABPLANALP/KEHRLEY/and so many other German, English and Switzerland names.
AND CANNING, EVELEIGH, HEAD, HICKS, MANUEL, MINTY, WATKINS, WELLS and many other Newfoundland, Canada families.

changes made to William
Hi Helen,
I made some changes to William H Hankins' memorial. I wasn't sure which birth year was correct: the gravestone or the newspaper obit, so I kept it the same.

What a great graveyard that is!

Best regards and don't hesitate to give me more info. I'd love to help.

James Moore - 56832734
Hi Holly, could you please transfer James Moore to me? I recently received his death certificate and he is my father's cousin. If that is not possible, could I please send you his parents, spouse and children's Find A Grave #'s and his b/d dates.

I appreciate your putting this cemetery on Find A Grave. My cousin and I are doing a family tree and we never would have found his resting place based on family records.

Thank you. Pat.

Helen Cordts Grave Photo
Dear Helen,
If at all possible I would love to have any photos you may have taken in the Callicoon NY cemetary. 90% of my family is buried there (including my parents Franklin and Mildred Duckel) Any names containing Kastner, Wagner, Cordts . I would love to be a be able to add any photos you may have to my family tree. The Kastner Family settled there and my Great great Grandfather Christopher actually donated the land for the cemetary and for the small church across the street. The church reverted back to my family around 2005 when it was no longer used as church...apparently the congregation had more members in Jeffersonville Most of the original Kastner children moved west when the farm in Callicoon was no longer large enough to support them (11 children) One of my great uncles Franklin (hence my fathers name) died in the great San Francisco earthquake in the early 1900's... Again, I would love to be able attach any photos you may have taken to my family tree.

Thank you

My you have added so very many memorials. Bless your soul. You are doing great work. People like yourself are what makes this website great!
