When I was researching my own family, I received a great deal of help from complete strangers who were willing to help me without asking anything in return. I felt the need to pay that forward. So it tickles me beyond words to discover my headstone photos as part of someone's family tree. How sad would it be if after all the photos are taken and posted and researched and documented that no one looked at them or cared that they were there. So to those of you who have found my photos and made use of them, thanks for caring and you're most welcome.|
For the most part I am unrelated to most of the memorials I have posted. For those that I'm not, I find it sad to leave them as just names and dates and feel that its important to say at least a little something about their lives. For those that have nothing there, they're not forgotten, I just haven't gotten there yet. And while I don't always cite my sources on each memorial, for Long Island special thanks goes to Carolee Nichols Diamond and David Roberts for their unending patience and wealth of information, the transcriptions of Elbert N. Carter and longislandgenealogy and Ancestry, (with a nod to the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, various volumes), Suffolk County Historical Newspapers, George Moraitis, Historian for the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson, Steve Gill from the Patchogue Cemeteries Restoration Committee, Dan Prunty, Ruland Funeral Home and President of Cedar Grove Cemetery, and Marcy from Cedar Grove, who lets me raid her records without complaint.
If you find something that needs correcting, or if you have information you'd like added, please use the SAC and I'll be happy to make the changes. If its a close family member and you'd like to have it transferred into your care, please let me know. Again, most of them are unrelated to me and I would gladly have them find a home with family.

Thanks a lot for adding the bio information that I requested to William Revere's memorial. Thank you also for adding his newspaper Obituary information. I hadn't found it yet and didn't know that he had been a prisoner at the Confederate Libby Prison in Richmond, VA. I recently found some Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper articles (Doctors report and Letter from another prisoner at a Richmond Prison Hospital), printed months after the First Bull Run Battle in 1861, that mentioned William was also a prisoner there. Lastly, thanks for also creating and adding info to William's wife and daughter's memorials. You are the Best!

I have completed the linking of Alvah to his parents and 7 siblings. Words can not express
my gratitude to you. My cousin and I have been searching for so many years to
finally have the 8 sibling all together, with their parents.
You have completed our quest.

Hi. I wanted to ask you for permission to use the photo you took of Gene Horton's gravestone for my ancestry tree. He was my Mom's cousin. Thanks.
