|Time has made me more interested in having a good record of various relatives. I pay close attention to infant children whenever I find a section as we have been trying to locate a gravesite of my mother's oldest brother who died in infancy in the Yonkers, New York area - Last name would be Doyle. I also pay attention to the infant cemeteries because sometimes they need some tlc hence I carry an assortment of small gardening toos with me. Because of my father, a deceased retired Marine, I also pay attention to the flat military memorial because they are often overgrown. |
Leave me a message or to e-mail me. Note that I will only fulfill photo requests submitted directly through findagrave as of May 19, 2011. I take photos as time will allow. I work full time and use my lunch hour to upload the photos. I live in the central New Jersey area but I travel into Monmouth County (Freehold and the Belmar/SpringLake/Manasquan area)as well as parts of Ocean and Hunterdon Counties in New Jersey. I have also been traveling in to the Westchester/Rockland County areas in New York and parts of Connecticut.
One last comment: SO MANY CEMETERIES ARE IN NEED OF TLC WITHOUT ENOUGH HANDS TO MAINTAIN EVERY SINGLE GRAVESITE AND FLAT MEMORIALS ARE SINKING AND/OR BEING COVERED WITH CRAB GRASS OR OTHER GROUND COVER. IF YOU HAVE A FEW MINUTES OF EXTRA TIME WHEN VISITING ANY CEMETERY FOR WHATEVER REASON OR IF YOU KNOW A BOY OR GIRL SCOUT, BAR OR BAT MITZVAH OR ANYONE IN NEED OF COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS OR A SERVICE PROJECT, PLEASE TAKE CARE OF SOME OF THE FLAT MEMORIALS WHETHER THEY ARE MILITARY MARKERS OR NOT, EVEN IF IT'S JUST TRIMMING THE WEEDS AROUND THEM. SO MANY CHILDREN ARE AFRAID OF CEMETERIES AND THEY SHOULDN'T BE. TAKE YOUR CHILDREN OR GRANDCHILDREN WITH YOU ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A "HOME" CEMETERY. THIS WAY THEY WILL KNOW WHERE FAMILY MONUMENTS ARE LOCATED WHEN WE ARE NO LONGER HERE.
Thanks so much!

Please disregard my request. I found it in March. Hope you like it.

When did I send you information from James McConnell's obituary? I take hundreds of photos of obituaries and the approximate date would help me to locate it. Thanks, Rhonda

i contacted the cemetery caretaker and as soon as he sends me a list of where everyone is i will be going there to photograph
Weather permitting, I expect to be at Holy Sepulchre cemetery this coming weekend, weather permitting. I go there regularly so it would be no trouble.

If you get the location of the grave from the office I will try to get a photo of it.

Two of the names on the Gutteridge stone are just Mother and Father. I checked the 1920,1930 and 1940 US Census and they are listed in Asbury Park as Walter and Mary. The third name on the stone was Francis.

Thanks. I just sent another edit request with her birth info: 1870 is approximate based on census records, which give birthplace as Washington, DC. I looked, yesterday, for a NJ probate pre-1953, but couldn't find one. I suspect she is the Roberta transacting property sales in Trenton into the 1940s, so she might have died later than 1953. But I found no obit in the Trenton papers, either, so it may be that she left NJ. -Joe
