On May 26, 2015, we completed uploading photos of all of the stones in Prospect Hill Cemetery. The only stones not included on a memorial would be recent ones (2015 burials).

Copying and posting other peoples pictures is not only NOT COOL, it is a violation of Find A Grave Policy.

Please ask for permission to use our photos!

RE: John Wright Olmstead
I am not understanding how this system works? If Emma was another child of JW's and was left off his site information, why wouldn't you want to make his biographical information complete and accurate? Confused about this issue! Thanks.

John Wright Olmstead
I am the great-granddaughter of JW Olmstead and your information is lacking one of his children, Emma. Emma married Edward Sargent, the civil engineer who built the Great Sacandaga Lake. She is buried with her husband in the Edinburg, NY cemetery... not sure of her birthdate but she was older than Sarah!

Thanks for all your hard work compiling information in the cemetery!

Headstone removal request
Thank You for your request to remove your photo of my relatives headstone. I am sorry that I didn't get your permission to use your photo first. That was my mistake.

Louisa Hare, Prospect Hill Northville, N.Y.
You have made a duplicate memorial for my Gt. Gt. Gt. Aunt Asenath Louiza/Louisa (Miller) Edwards-Hare. My memorial predates yours by more then a year. My memorial was added on May 16, 2013 #110659204 while yours was added on November 20, 2014 # 139011596. The date of death on your memeorial is not correct it isn't 1913 but instead 1919. I have a copy of her death certificate from the Town of Northampton Town Clerk's Office in Northville which proves 1919 to be the correct year. I would appreciate it if you would delete your memorial. Thank you for the work you are doing with the Fulton County Cemeteries.

RE: Memorial Being Deleted
Thanks so much for taking time to notify me. I've added the photo to #103049913, so you can go ahead with deleting # 112356623.

Marion C Beams
good morning.....I am hoping you can help me. Mrs. Beams was my step-mother and I am trying to get a passport. But I don't have her date of birth....I see 1915 and I think the month was August but I might need the day. Is there a chance you have her date of birth in your records? any help would greatly be appreciated. If you need any other info from me, no problem.
thank you for your help.

Hi Again, I found his regiment, will send you the information via edit for his Bio. I have his civil war info, so I'll send it now. I have to convert his scanned obit into text. Will get that done and sent it later.

The 134th cemetery I referred to is known as the Broadalbin-Mayfield Rural Cemetery. This may be a different cemetery than the one you focused on.

Thanks Paul Turner

Joseph F. Walker 114089009
Hello Ben & Diane, I submitted an edit request to add his place of birth and his complete place and date of death. The source is his obituary that appeared May 13, 1933 in the Gloversville Morning Herald.

Joseph was a Civil War Veteran, I'm working on determining what regiment he served in as his obituary did not say. Once I have that information and his obituary transcribed, I'll submit them to you via edit for his "Bio" section. Thank you for having created his memorial.

I noticed that one of the cemeteries you are focused on is the Mayfield Cemetery. I believe two members of the 134th NY are buried there. When you surveyed the cemetery did you note any headstones with the 134th NY inscribed? I do research on the unit having had an ancestor who served in it. Paul Turner

Fish House Cemetery
Good afternoon,
I need to ask a huge favor of you. If possible on your travels, would you be able to go by the Fish House Cemetery and see if you can find the graves of the Sullivan family? I recently learned they are in that cemetery instead of the South Main Street one in Northville. I would appreciate it so much.
Thanks, Jen Metcalf
