Bio and Links
Bio Photo Live in Maryland; summer in the Adirondacks. Write historical articles for Weekly Adirondack in Old Forge and appear on , am interested in Adirondack and Fulton Chain historical figures, of whom many are in Oneida and Lewis Counties and other NY cemeteries, many now inactive, often in obscure locations.

I work from my cemetery photos, then linking the graves through trees, and newspaper sites such as and I often contact ancestry trees to let them know I've found their family members, especially if I've used their trees to confirm or help link family members on findagrave.

There is always a chance for errors and happy finger typos. So please do not hesitate to let me know if you find something needing correcting, have more family connections or question the links I've made, using the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

If you find I've added a photo where one was already present, I often take photos to get the whole stone and a closeup for clarity or to get the family group of stones. If I find a photo of part of a stone and I have the entire stone , if the back of stone is shown without the front, I will add my own to the benefit of the memorial and the deceased's family who may not be able to go to that location.

In like manner, if someone has a better, clearer photo than mine, please add it and don't hesitate to ask me to remove mine. Please contact me and I will be glad to do so for this any other reason.

I don't add to existing photos to replicate what is there or to add to my statistics. If you believe mine repeats what you've added without additional benefit, please ask me to remove mine and I will do so promptly.

Rather than add memorials from listings, I add memorials from walking the cemetery and taking photos.

Anything I add to findagrave is intended to be used by you.

My profile photo was taken at a mock cemetery at Sturbridge Village.

Lowville Rural Cemetery Duplicates
Just an FYI - I'm deleting the duplicates and linking to "old" entry so you will find edits/corrections coming. :)

You have added a photo to 119596395 which has nothing to do with that person. Please remove your photo.

Thank you!
Your work in the Riverview Cemetery/Old Forge is literally an answer to prayers! For years, we've been searching for the Doebrich family members, and just this past Saturday, I said one last prayer; and then today, you've published the memorial and posted the photos! Bless you!!!!! We are still looking for the gravesite of the mother of your memorial number 152310317. His mother is Agnes V (nee McAran) Doebrich. If your research has found her, too, again, THANK YOU!

Edna Scouten
Wanted to let you know I updated Edna's memorial (93556569) per your recent edit you sent to connect her parents. Thank you for your contribution! My hubby is related to the Scoutens. His grandmother is a Scouten. We traveled to Old Forge just to get the headstone photo. I do not know anything on the Murer family...

Jane Blakeslee Ritz, #92654776
Your suggestion: 92654680 her father Ellenwood.
This number is Alvin's memorial.
Thank you,

Re: Memorial #92654776
You are right, it is the wrong picture. The picture was added by "adknative" not me. Their picture should go on Frank Ritz and Jessie Hutchins Ritz's memorial.
Thank you,

RE: thanks
They are buried behind it in the picture, but all that is there is a cement pad.
