Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in the Adirondack-Sacandaga Region of upstate New York.

If you desire to add information to a bio, please do so through the "Edit" tab on the memorial's page or provide links to the memorial page that you desire to update.

Our pet projects are the Prospect Hill Cemetery, Northville, NY and the Mayfield Union Rural Cemetery, Mayfield Village, NY.

On May 26, 2015, we completed uploading photos of all of the stones in Prospect Hill Cemetery. The only stones not included on a memorial would be recent ones (2015 burials) which we will go back later this year to find and complete.

Brownell/Van Deursen need help
There are mysteries of dual identities surrounding Beulah (listed as spouse of Robert Van Deuren, Jr.), my maternal grandmother. The record I found on Ancestry lists two children whom I know belonged to Beulah Brownell-Thompson, and died in infancy. It lists their father (and Beulah's husband) as Robert C. Van Deursen, Jr. All four are buried in Prospect Hill Cemetery.
Can you confirm they were married?
Kindest regards,

Yes, it is sentimental for me, so please transfer when you have time as it would be an honor to care for her. She was a dear, dear relative, and I miss her smile and wit.

Thank you for the correction on the cemetery. Both memorials were edited.

Ben & Diane,

Since you live/lived in/near the area, I have a question. Many newspapers say burial was in Luzerne cemetery, but the only one I can find on this site is Lake Luzerne. Is that the same cemetery?

Thanks in advance, Donna

Hector Grassette family
Thank you for all the information on the Grassette family. I made the edits that you sent and I just transferred the memorials to you.
I am always willing to transfer graves that are not my family members, please request any that you are interested in.
Thank you for the work you do on find a grave.
God Bless You, Kathy Van Alstine

William H Robelee
He is my mother's first cousin's husband. If you could post his tombstone picture or email it to me at, I would appreciate it.

Interestly he was born Roblee, but the military spelled it Robelee, and rather than hassle with it, he changed it permanently to Robelee.

Margaret Roblee
According to Margaret's obit, she is in Northville Cemetery. It would make more sense for her to be in Prospect Hill with husband Theron. I just wanted to verify with you that she is in Prospect Hill and ask you to put a notation in yours that her obit says something different. If you would like the obit for any reason, please let me know. Denise
