Thank you so much I have Georgianna's Obit, and it says her husband Sylvanus is still alive, so no mention that she's "being interred alongside of him" or anything to that effect,since he is still living when she passed...thank you, please let me know if you spot anything more ~~ Susie

On your list of "added/managed" pages, it says GEORGIANNA JOHNSON findagrave page # 129898042 over there in "Trinity Cemetery, Hewlett, NY"....
georgianna and her husband Sylvanus are our Great-Great-Grandparents...

I'd like to add some info to her page at some point....

Also wanted to know if you knew anything about what's on her headstone...

Where it says "SYLVANUS JOHNSON 1862" that's our Great-grandfather...

Do you know if he is buried in the same grave as her? I can't find him anywhere on findagrave...

I wondered if they are in the same plot now that I've seen his name on her headstone....

thank you,

Picture use
Would you mind if I used a headstone photo that you took to add to my family tree? It would be Patricia Strong's headstone picture. I will of course give you credit for taking the pic..... Thanks..Tom
