Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved the old cemeteries. My interest in genealogy has brought me back into the cemeteries to find my roots. I love helping others to discover their past and to honor and remember those that have come before us.

Currently I am working on photographing and transcribing the cemeteries of Queens Co. and Long Island, New York. I love learning about the interesting families that lived here and I am happy to help others when I can.

Nearly all of the information for the memorials I have entered is taken from photographs which I have personally taken. In the interest of getting as many people entered as possible, I have gotten behind in adding all my photos. If you see a memorial which I have entered and you would like a photo, please request the photo by clicking the "request a photo" tab on the memorial and then drop me a line to let me know that you have put in the request. I am not automatically notified when a photo request has been made on a memorial I have created.

I welcome all corrections. I try to be as accurate as I possibly can.

I submitted a photo request. You asked to be notified, because you may have a photo at the ready. Thanks for all your efforts for the living members of the families.

RE: United Church Cemetery Rawdon
I noticed that you have a couple of photo requests for Fenton's in another Rawdon Cemetery, which I have photographed, but not yet uploaded. Are you related to Fentons?

I was down that way doing genealogy research on Fenton's! My 6th g greandfather is buried in St. Pauls Anglican Cemetery in Rawdon, Richard Fenton.

Hi Dyane,

I've recently photographed this cemetery and uploaded the photo's to the memorials you've created. There are many edits which can be made. Linking family members and some dates on the memorials do not match the stones. There are several memorials for people who are not deceased. I have not added the photograph to those.
I do have one photo of a broken stone, the only readable part is Sept 15 26 yrs.
There is a memorial with a date of Sept 15, but that person was 75 at death and I do have a photo for that memorial. If you have any suggestions for that one, let me know.
Thanks for adding the memorials, makes the uploading of photo's much quicker!!!

Hi Dyane

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner ( busy working ).
Sometimes the circumstances of death should not be published outright. However sources should be available for the interested persons.

Nicholas Ryder
Hi Dyane,
There is a Nicholas Ryder in the Southside Burial Ground, Memorial# 94137985. Born 1812, died Jan. 9, 1813 and that he is the s/o Stephen and Ann Ryder. Stephen was born in 1808 and Ann was born in 1811 which won't work. I am wondering if he is the one and the same as the Thomas Ryder that was in the notes on the old records of the cemetery (Description of Private and Family Cemeteries in the Borough of Queens, 1932) Thomas died Jan. 9, 1843 and he was 2 months old the same as Nicholas. If instead of 1813, the one could be a four. Do you happen to have a photo of the tombstone that you could review?

Hello Dyane

Are you still photographing the above cemetery? If so, there are a few of my family members there that I am in need of. Please let me know so I can give you the memorial numbers. I am trying to confirm my file info with that of their tombstones.

Thank you
