|Bio and Links|
I have been working on my families genealogy for over thirty years. The family originated in CT and then migrated to the Upstate NY area. I have traveled back to the area several times a year searching for gravestones for my family and my husband's family. I love fulfilling requests! My grandson also enjoys my passion and loves to point out cemeteries to me as we drive through the countryside. |
**Feel free to use any photos that I have posted.**

I was surprised to see my mother's marker on your page. I gather this is from the Wagar family plot in Maryland, NY. I woul love to add your photos to my own page. I have not been back to NY since before Mom passed so have never seen this before. Do you happen to know if there are also markers for my Mom's sisters? Jane Wagar Dapolito and Ruth Wagar Warren. Jane passed in 2002, just 6 months before my Mom while Ruth passed in March 1968.
I also noticed you had my father's birthdate. Sadly he passed in April 2008.
If you have any other info on the family plot, I would appreciate anything you might want to share.
Blessings to you!

I looked again at the William Rathbone headstone & it says he died in May, so have fixed the memorial.
Looking at the Hiram Rathbun headstone - it looks like it says he died 15 May 1856 not 1876. Since he died age age 1y 5m,the death year of 1856 would agree with the 1855 census [Jun 13] that showed Hiram at age 6m. Still not sure if he was born in Dec 1854 or Jan 1855.
Really appreciate your letting me know about the new headstone photos!

|Cathy||RE: William Rathbun|
Thank you for the great photos! I changed his last name to Rathbone. The name started out that way, but later became Rathbun in our lines. Interesting though because his father's stone has "Rathbun". William is "Rathbun" in 1850 census; "Rathbone" in 1855; "Rathbun' in 1865.
I noticed that I had the death date wrong, so have fixed that too. It's wonderful to be able to see the actual stone! I was going by a cemetery listing that showed he died in May. That same listing shows "Caroline Rathbone", "Hiram Rathbone", "Rufus Rathbone" and "William Rathbone". Also lists "Agnes Rathbun d. 21 Sep 1848 age 16 wife of William Rathbun".
I noticed the photo for Rufus - does it say "Rathbun" on the bottom? Also the photo for Hiram - does it say "Rathbun" or "Rathbone"?
