I believe this site is an amazing way to help keep our ancestors memory alive. Without the help of other Find A Grave volunteers I would never have found family members that had long ago been hidden away in different cemeteries across this nation. I am so very thankful for all those who took the time to help me and so hope to return the same courtesy onto others. |
If you come across a family member (that is not related to me) that I have entered into Find a Grave please just provide me with the proper info so I can transfer it to you.

Per records on website, http://scottsvillemuseum.com/cemeteries/ScottsvilleCemetery/ScottsvilleCemeteryMap_NameIndex2006.pdf, indicate the Bairds' are buried in the Scottsville Cemetery.

I noticed you asked a question about this surname. I am not related in any way, but am looking for a burial site of William Dion McKillop, who died in the Vietnam War. His memorial # is 140532388. Any idea who this young hero is??
|Jack Parry||Jonathan Nye|
I have entered the material you suggested but added a few remarks of my own. Having checked the burial records, it showed that Jonathan died in Weathersfield but is buried in Brownington which is 120 miles north of Weathersfield. I could find no rational information as to why he was buried here and not in Weathersfield.
All my McKillop's are in Chicago and Ireland. No McKillop connections in Michigan that I'm aware of. My line starts with James McKillop & Maria Sheridan. They had 9 children and two of their sons, Alexander & Samuel are in Chicago. Alexander and his wife Mary Ann McHenry is the line my mother-in-law descends from. I have not researched the other 7 children.

My husband's Mother was a McKillop. I have not been able to make a connection to Mary McKillop (buried at Mt. Olivet) to her line. I do not have a Jane in my data base and do not know if William & Mary had a daughter Jane. Sorry I could not be of more help.

I noticed you had an interest in this family. I am transcribing and photo-documenting the older sections of Lancaster Rural cemetery in Erie County, New York and have added 3 or 4 more Ely's in the last month or so. Most notably, Mary Ann Ely who I literally uncovered today. I believe there are still a dozen more without memorials scattered throughout the cemetery (10,000 burials or thereabouts). Kathi

I noticed that you don't have the death and birth dates for Edgar Decker. I have the page 42 and 43 copied from the "Bellevue Riverside Cemetery" records which contain the Decker stats.
Edgar J. Decker
He was buried in the Riverside Cemetery, but since there is no signage outside of the cemetery when the first person who setup the Find A Grave site didn't know it's real name and labeled they it "Bellevue." Indeed many of the locals do call it the Bellevue Cemetery, the Liberian tells me. But those in the know call it the Riverside Cemetery. The Bellevue Historical Society maintains the book about the interments in the cemetery and keep a copy in the library. It is now, I think, being updated for the years 2000-2010.
|Diggin for one||Edwin B Ely|
Thank you for the additional information to include on his memorial. Just to verify, his middle name was Becksmith and his father's was Beckwith?
Are you also from an "Ely" line?. I have hit a brick wall with mine. They also were from New York, New York City and moved to Michigan between 1860-1870.
|Jodie Jenks||Richard Decker Information|
I am sorry to add another message to your list, however, I noticed that only two people with the surname Decker listed in the Riverside Cemetery (aka Bellevue Cemetery) "Birth, Death, and Burials" were not in Find A Grave. I am going to add them tonight and if you wish me to turn them over to you let me know. I can't see any way they can possible be related to me.
You can call the library at 267-763-3369 to verify my information. They do free phone checks on the above book. Sometimes I get things mixed up... And I always try to verify things any way.
|Jodie Jenks||Herbert, Lila, and Amanda's Memorial photo's|
I bet you will like to know that I found their stones today and took their pictures. But I have a technical problem with my camera. I can't get them out of it. ;) I forgot to put the disk in it. So I'll up load the picture today when I figure out how to do it or wait until tomorrow and shoot it again with the disk IN my camera.
It looks like you have lots of information on Herbert, Lila and Amanda already. There was very little extra information in the book I used to find the plot information on Herbert. Herbert was not buried at the place where they said he was and it was accident I found him. Your lucky I found him.
If I find any extra information you don't already have I'll let you know.
And so it goes...
