RE: I created a duplicate
Done. I added a couple of photos of plaques from the ceremonial area of the cemetery. Use them if you wish. You can just refer to my Find A Grave bio for any credit you wish to add.

I'm happy the photo has found a proper home. Regards.

RE: Louis Freudenberg grave marker
I'd be happy to forward the photo for you, but I don't see an email address on your profile. I see "leave a public message" and a link to a Wikipedia site.

John Staats Jr (1690 birth)
Hi Richard,

I'm working on my family tree and came across something that appears to be a misstep. John Staats Jr has a birthdate of about 1690, as modified by yourself. Hi wife was born in 1745 (Geertye Quick) and John Staats Jr in FamilySearch died in 1741. I'm trying to find the father of Rynear Staats, born in 1786, and his father's name is John Staats...but I don't believe his father was born in 1690. Could you help figure out if the birthdate for John Staats (1690) could be an error? Please send me an email at nathanapeterson@gmail.com.

Thank you so much for your help!
