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.

Daniel Amos
yes Richard and Daniel are the sons of Richard ads Elizabeth( Ritter) Amos. I tried since putting data online with City Of Ny Historical records . To get their home parish to at least hang a plaque in recognition of what Richard Sr and Christopher likely did in the War. It is in an old book on The Village that they were " Revolutionary War heroes". Online says they were trustees of Lord Admiral Warren. And that after the war they got all his estate and whatever he didn't take with him back to England. Put the two together I must conclude they were spies not affiliated with Culper. OR involved in some kind of economic sabotage on the British. Tories wouldn't get such a valuable gift if they worked for the losing side. Love to talk with you about this Revolutionary War puzzle around the grave of two kids. A daughter Anna Amos lived to adulthood and married into an old Dutch NYC banking family. .

Richard Amos in Saint Paul s Churchyard
i researched that stone. Based on what s online and the NY Historical Society on 5 th Avenue it is likely his dad and uncle were spies for the Continental Army right under the nose of a Lord a Admiral. Richard Sr and Christopher Amos got all the Lord Admiral s estate( Wrest Village now) after the war. If they were Tories this wouldn't have happened. I tried to give a plaque to the rector of Saint Luke s onChristopherSt to the 2 Vets. Don't know if it was put in the church. The Amos home parish

RE: Edward Lascells
At the cemetery did you look through burial records there, or see a stone for Edward? Thanks for your help.

Captain Francis Marsden
Hello Dan,

Would like to thank you for adding this gent, he is a distant relation. My Great Grandmother was a Marsden. Is he a relation of yours too? I have added a picture of his monument (I believe the grave has been moved when Wakefield Church turned into a Cathedral).

I understand that he died at Burntwood Lodge (Hall). Not sure if this was his father’s house or some relation as I understood him to have lived in Kettlethrope Hall. I understand he had a sister called Hana Maria who married a John Carr of Hornby (a relation to the Yorkshire builder, John Carr of York).

I read that he was known as “Frank” by other officers and that he was “well pounded” at the Battle of Bunker Hill, but did his duty. Unfortunately he never recovered.
All the best
