I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

Arthur Adams
There is no marker. Arthur was cremated on 5/30/1968. The ashes were never claimed or scattered according to cemetery records and currently reside in "permanent care" which is in their vault.

Adams photo request
Hello - Skylawn was having technical difficulties and was unable to give me a grave location. I will try again later.

RE: Re Daisy Gardner
I recently started working at Hillside Cemetery and Find a Grave is helping me to learn the cemetery, and, some of the stories of people buried there.

RE: Hillside Cemetery
Jim, Greetings. Yes slowed down a bit but all is well...Hillside Cemetery is the same. Peekskill is a town separated from Cortlandt, Cortlndt Manor opened a new postal address so Hillside Cemeteryis one

I see you entered a burial to this cemetery. Have you been there? Trying to locate it on Rt 90.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks again Jim for posting the photo of Eliza Almira (Ferris) Wilder Harris at

I was able to match up another photo - which I also uploaded so you could see.

(I did the same with Silas Ferris as well)

I feel like saying 'duh'.

I have that photo in my Ferris/Stearns collection. I thought it looked familiar! Many of my photos have no names on them - and that was one of them.

Thanks for posting that - I never would have made the connection.
