My family research started in 1980. I enjoy helping others in their family research.
In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

|Saratoga||Kitty and William Herrick|
I did not add Kitty to be the child of William Herrick. Since I don't own her memorial I can't add parents to her memorial. It looks like the New York Historian must have done so since he/she owned Kitty's memorial. Sorry I couldn't help.

|Marilyn Weakley||Francis Paul and Emma Gillespie|
I am currently visiting Yonkers, NY and I will be here until the end of the first week of Mar. I am taking two online courses. I asked my brother to call several cemeteries, to find out burial locations. When he talked to the lady who works in the office of St John's cemetery, she told him that she had no record for Francis and Emma Gillespie. Are you sure that this is the correct cemetery?
|Ellen Johnson||Charles Breese|
Thanks for the parental info for Charles H. Breese in New Somerville Cemetery. I think the maiden name for his mother is "DILTS", not Diets, and if that is the case, then I found them and linked them! The dates are right....
|Remo||RE: Warren Evans|
Her name wasn't on the back of his marker, as they usually are.

|Gary Urbanowicz||Windsor Hotel Fire|
Although not a victim, you might want to include Deputy Chief William Clark (Find A Grave Memorial #122985595) in your VC.
|Sherry SH||RE: Re: Alexander Walter Baird|
I was able to re-take Alexander Baird's marker photo, I am working on putting the names around his plot in the caption of the photo of Wall 4.
|Ken Anderson||Martha S. Anderson|
Could I request a transfer of Martha S. Anderson Find A Grave Memorial# 53168167.
She is the wife of one of my uncles in the Marion, Virginia area and I have some additional information and children I can add to the memorial.
|Sherry SH||RE: Re: Alexander Walter Baird|
There is only one other Baird in the cemetery,
Virginia H. Baird was born July 5 1919 and died July 20 1959. She is buried Plot: Sec. Gm, 20-5
Find A Grave Memorial# 71781104
Alexander's marker is at the very top, about 15 feet high, when I go back, I will see if the stairs are available to take a better picture, but I think we were able to catch his birth and death date, just not clearly.
