A romantic at heart I enjoy medieval romance novels (reading and writing), illustrating, taking photographs, and the most recent addition to my hobby list is: genealogy. |
I began in Feb of 2006. I have always wondered who my ancestors were, but now I had a reason to look them up...my children one day may wonder where they came from.
So I began interviewing family members and couldn't believe how much they didn't know. Armed with a few names and dates (some of them wrong), I began my online search. At that time I was too green to find much but with the generous help of other genealogy enthusiasts, I have pieced together my rather extensive tree many lines going back to the early 1700's.
After discovering that one line of my direct discendants were buried in the First Presbyterian Cemetery in Elizabeth NJ, I made the 1 hour trip to the cemetery, expecting the worst but hoping for the best.
It took nearly an hour to find my ancestors but when I did I was amazed to not only find the stones legible, but to see that they comprised the very first row facing Broad St. I also discovered that my gx5grandfather was a Revolutionary War Private, something that I was unable to find online. I then realized that others must think the same about their ancestors. So I took random shots and posted them online. Now, after an overwhelming response, photographing tombstones has become a passion.

I took 2 photos today that may be John Hoyt's gravestone. I'd like to show them to someone before adding them, since the stone is difficult to read. Should I show them to you or the woman who created the memorial? I live in Sherman, and you can contact me at email@example.com. I'll be glad to send the photos to your email.

Thank you so much for all of the photos you added to the pages I created in South Dover Rural Cemetery. I went there and spent a good part of the day taking photos. Afterwards, I added all of the information to a spreadsheet and uploaded it to the site.
As I was adding the photos to the pages, my computer crashed and I lost the rest of the photos. I am transferring all of my pages for two families to a descendant, and the pages are complete because of you.
thanks Andrea -- my usual sources are cemetery lists and church records. I will be sure to note it next time.

My neighbor has given me a grave stone that was in their yard for many years - no one seems to know where it came from - but the family wants it removed before the house is shown for sale.
The stone is old and has a lamb on the top and time has not been kind to the stone. I did manage to get the name Darling off the stone. It also lists 4 children - and their death dates. Using the FindAGrave site I came upon a Darling Stone in the Bull's Bridge Cemetery and the 4 names are the same as the old stone. FindAGrave memorial # 16254388 - Are you related to the Darling family and do you want the old grave stone? I can't just toss it aside - there is some verse on the bottom of the stone - but I'll have to work on getting it cleaned up. Please call me @ 860-354-2514

That was a pretty funny story about getting stuck in the First Pres cemetery. Did they really lock the gates behind you while you were taking photos. LOL
Interesting that you remembered that crane accident that broke so many tombstones. The church had been assured several times that it would not fall into the chruchyard, but that's just what it did. Even today you can see signs of the path of broken stones the crane carved out.

I sent you an email re Elihu Price et al cause it was too long to put in the message boards.
|Roibeard53||RE: elizabeth Addison|
Looks like you are right about the dates being 1858 to 1928. You can't tell very well from the recent photos, but if you look at the photo TimG took, you can see the word "BORN" below her name and above the March 1858 date. And below that date, it looks like the word "DIED" is above the lower 1928 date.
I have more close up pics at home though and I will look at them as well as send them to you. But it does look like she is the next generation down. Is there a "Mr. Addison" somewhere?
