Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Stillman Alvord in Shelburne Center Cemetery (Memorial# 16683643).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Massachusetts Obituaries, where his obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Mike [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,

You have Benjamin Alvord, Memorial# 9100952, listed in your Virtual Cemetery, unknown relationship to Alexander. You can move him to "descendants of Alexander"! Here's his Alvord lineage:

The Alford American Family Association has his obituary in our District of Columbia Obituaries:

RE: Mary Folts Alvord edits
Correct. Mary Ann Folts, daughter of Peter Folts, married Russell Brown. She is Memorial# 19691962, where her gravestone identifies her parents.

I don't know the parents of the Mary Folts who married Amos Alvord (Memorial# 30016652).

RE: Mary Folts Alvord edits
Regarding my exchange with Ingrid (wienerin) about the Folts: She is reluctant to link the children of Peter Folts and Anna Cole Folts to them because Peter and Anna are among those who were originally buried in Old Village of Herkimer Cemetery but whose graves have not been located elsewhere. Research, including sonar readings, has indicated that no one is left in Old Village cemetery. Therefore, even though the memorials are there, she does not want to link to them. I disagreed with that conclusion, but they're her memorials!

RE: Mary Folts Alvord edits
I believe that Mary, daughter of Peter and Anna Cole Folts, is here: Memorial# 19691962. You can barely read the bottom of her gravestone because leaves are in front of it, but it apparently says "wife of R. [Russell] W. Brown" and "Daughter of Peter M. and Anna G. Folts."

See the 1920s transcription of Dutch Reformed Church Cemetery at "Some Small Cemeteries of the Town of Herkimer":

Russell and Mary Brown are on the 1850 census in German Flatts, Herkimer Co., NY.

I have sent corrections to the memorial owner, Bruce Colles.

Well I found out that you got the info you put on here from some other woman. I am not sure if you are related to the Seybert or Ellsworth family, but she evidentally gave you some info to put on the memorial. So you wouldn't really be able to answer the question.

Elizabeth was first married to Henry Harrison Seybert. Now I see you ment some research by Willard Ellsworth MD. Do you have this paper?? If so is there any mention of the marriage of Henry Harrison Seybert to Elizabeth's sister Lucinda Ellsworth first having two children then his marriage to Elizabeth after Lucinda died?

Lucinda is bur under Ellsworth however, one woman declares she was Henry Harrison Seybert's first wife and had two children who were raised by him and her sister Elizabeth.

Also was there no tombstone for Elizabeth???
