Bio and Links

My family research started in 1980.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

RE: Harold F. Wilson - St. John Cemetery
Yes, he married my great grand aunt Margaret Johnson. I do not know that side of my family, aside from what I have been able to discover on my own. I suspected he was buried at St John's, but I wasn't sure, so, thank you! Are you related?

Thank you so much,I really appreciate it all and the hard work you do taking these pictures. I think it is amazing of you to take the Angel Babies pictures,That is awesome!!! I have one from my Aunt she passed away few years ago and told me she had a baby at St.Raymonds Cemetery and didn't recall the date just the year he was born and lived 2 or 3 days old,abt 1958-1960. Still waiting for the lady to call me back and let me know if she found him in her records there.

Thanks so for your research and photographs. Asbury Harpending Jr. was an important figure in the history of the American West. Fate brought him to be buried in New York. There is a good article about him on
