DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND MY CONTROL, I NO LONGER HAVE INTERNET OR EMAIL (AT HOME), I WILL STILL BE ADDING MEMORIALS-TRANSFERS-CORRECTIONS ON TWO OTHER COMPUTERS.
PLEASE LEAVE ALL MESSAGES HERE. Be sure to include your contributor ID #.
Ancestors & relatives never really go away, they get buried, cremated or vaulted in a sacred place for us to visit and remember. After all, where would we be without our ancestors? As much as it hurts to lose a loved one, we must be thankful for the time we had together. These memorials in FIND A GRAVE are growing by a million a month and make it easier for the world to find & see the memorials of their loved ones. Through these memorials, they live on.
Passionate is an understatement, Genealogy & Cemeteries are a big part of my life. Have 35 years of sometimes obsessive research under my belt. I'm one of the very few volunteers for Madison County, NY which is 662 square miles with 285 Cemeteries and endless hills (up to 1800 ft) & valleys, so go easy on me folks.
Genealogically I picked up where my Grandfather and his father left off. I specialize in Madison County, NY and surrounding areas and Warren County, NY. If you find your relative in my memorials and would like transfers or to add bios, or corrections let me know. All my photos are free for distribution.
Though it feels like "good-bye", we know that in reality, for those of us who have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ it is merely, "see-you-later"
Taphophilia is a interest for and enjoyment of cemeteries. Taphophilia involves epitaphs, gravestone rubbing, photography, art, and history of deaths. The singular term is a taphophile.

|Debbie Davis||FylerSettlement Cemetery|
I appreciate all the hard work you have put into find a grave site. This site has been of great help in my family tree research. You actually posted a few of my ancestors from Fyler Settlement. I was wondering if you knew who or how I could get any info on my ancestors? In my search I have found the office of cemeteries I have visited had index cards on each person buried there. The few times I have been to Fyler no one seemed to know anything on the church or if there were any files. The church at the cemetery was never opened when we were there. Not even sure if it is being used any longer. I am from Louisville KY. so it is a distance to drive. I did check with Madison County Historical Society. became a member actually. But even they were unable to help me with this. I am a member of ancestry.com as well as a few others. What I am searching for is Daniel Bender's parents names. It has become a real challenge to find them. Do you know of anyone I can contact for this church? I am at a stand still on the Benders. Daniel Bender would be my gg grandfather. Id appreciate any info you might have on my search. I'd be for ever grateful.. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this...
|Randall Chandler Stroot||Robert and Frances Klock|
Hello Andrew! Thankyou for your amazing contributions to this website. I've been quite busy with my own family connections.
Anyway, Robert Klock(Memorial# 47625475) and Frances Downing Klock(Memorial# 47625512) are my great great maternal grandparents.
Their daughter Miriam Klock Meriwether is my great grandmother, mother to Margaret Meriwether Chandler, who is mother of my mother, Sandra Chandler Stroot.
I would very much appreciate your consideration in both their transfers, as I have much information to add.
Thankyou for your attention and continuing efforts.

|Christine Wheeler||Transfer of 53403116|
Would you please transfer to me my father's memorial, #53403116 for William J. Wheeler?
It was through this that I first discovered Findagrave, and I want to thank you so much for adding Dad's record as well as other family members of mine in Madison County--and for all the thousands that you've maintained for so many years!

|James Bianco||John & Esther Gardner, Shed's cemetery|
I am working on families of Wales & Brimfield Massachusetts, photographing the cemeteries and adding biographical details. I am local. I would like to further develop John & Esther Gardner (memorials 55869480 & 55869396) if a transfer is possible. My # is 47745493 . Thank You, James
|Kathryn Hill||Harold Cole - Oneida Castle Cemetery|
I have another site that I can update with more information:
if a transfer seems O.K. Love Saturday - Kathy Member ID 47225156
|Rebecca Ott||Eaton Farm Cemetery|
You thankfully created a memorial for a Judson Jerritt Mace at Eaton Farm Cemetery in 2009. From the information you recorded, I think there must be a stone there. Would it be possible for you to take a picture of the stone or do you know of anyone that can take the picture and either post it at findagrave or send it to me (and I'll post it). I did request a photo at findagrave, but the other 2 requests were from 2010 and haven't been fulfilled. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.

|Ron Fink||Fink's in Mabie Cemetery|
I am trying to find out all the people buried in the Shaver Private Cemetery/ Mabie Farm Cemetery. I think my ancestors are buried there. Their surnames are Fink. Can you help in any way.

|Linda Billington Stewart||RE: Samuel Billington|
It looks like spring might be delayed this year! But I'll check back to see if you've found a stone for Samuel. Thanks.
|Jodine Bergen||Waterville Cemetery burials|
I am looking for burial information on several people who died in Waterville. My 2x great grandfather lived in Waterville. Two of his children are buried there: Clara Amelia Harwood died 31 December 1862 at 7 months 26 days old and Hatley Harwood died sometime around the same time. Mary Ann Welford, my 3x great grandmother, died 15 December 1879 at age 75. Her husband could be buried near her. I don't know his name only last name Welford. William's sister Hannah Gurr died 28 December 1927. Her husband John Gurr was buried 29 May 1892. Their daughter Marietta Julia Gurr died 1 June 1919.
Would it be possible for you to add memorials for these people? If not, do you know of a contact at the cemetery who could help me find missing information? Thanks for any help.
|Margaret Sopp||Sarah Matteson|
Thank you so much for taking the photos at Welsh Church Union Cemetery in Nelson, NY for the Matteson family. The stones for George, Clarissa and Sophronia are wonderfully preserved. The photo for Sarah not so much. Can you read the dates on Sarah's tombstone? I've fooled around with the contrast, but I just can't pick up on the dates. She is my husband's ancestor.
