Bio and Links
Bio Photo I discovered Find A Grave while doing genealogy research and have been promoting it ever since. I think it is a great way to remember family, friends, classmates, coworkers, and many others that have passed on.
I recently started a genealogy blog as a place to record a large amount of material left by an aunt and my grandmother. It is called Butternut Valley Family History. Please find the URL below.

RE: Thank you once again,
I'm doing my best to have all requests from Greenlawn Cemetery met. I was walking through the cemetery this morning, and remembered to look...I have to clean some moss off of another grave before I take the photo, hopefully that will happen today. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Thank you for your holiday wishes and I hope you too can enjoy the holidays. It is a crazy time of year for us with the little grandchildren running around, but loving every minute of it. Take care and may 2015 be good to you.

RE: Another Stickles
I read Harriet Vrooman's obit and I see they were originally from Oneonta...we were wandering in one of the Oneonta cemeteries and we came across another Stickles in which I do not know where they fit in with my Stickles. I thought the name Leslie Stickles sounded familiar and he is my 1st cousin 2 x's removed. I have not seen the headstone pic, though, before. Nice! Thanks!
I know what you mean when you were saying in regards to info that is in an obit. My father's obit has my grandmother's maiden name wrong because no one could agree what it was.
Sorry to hear about your husband!

RE: Amazing,
LOL, Thanks Donna! Not sure about amazing but I was determined to learn about Robert Stickle(s) and his HUGE family. Family tradition says he had 23 children total, but I can only find evidence of the 19. Maybe gr-grandma had 4 miscarriages early in her pregnancies? Not really sure...
Yes, Robert's children, for the most part, stayed in the Cooperstown, Oneonta, Burlington and Edmeston areas until their children dispersed to other places. Presently my direct line is all that is left around here with a lateral line still in Schuyler Lake and Fly Creek and another that live in Sauquoit. Out of 19 children and their descendants, that's not really that many. All in all, the family did stay in Otsego County for about 100 years solid. (and I can see why-it's one of my favorite places in NYS! very beautiful area!)
Hope all is well with you!
Best regards,

RE: Re Stone
Sorry the response took so long, as I have been extremely busy of late. My maiden name is Stonecipher, not Stone. God Bless and have a great day! - Robi

RE: Thank you
For location, the best I can tell you is that I had parked where Card Road turns east to go around the pond, and I walked in from there. So it's in that furthest northeast loop. (If that's not clear, shoot me your email address via the private messages and I'll send a satellite map scan of where I mean.)
In that loop, it should be easy to spot because it's so unique.
I was looking at the picture again, and I thought the lower vertical part of the cross had some kind of celtic runes, then suddenly realized it says "Wellman" (vertically). Cool!
