Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was bitten by the genealogy bug about 8 years ago, walking through and searching cemeteries became part of it. I find cemeteries a most peaceful and calming place. I spend most of my free time photographing and transcribing my local cemeteries.
I also clean headstones, my passion is edging and cleaning Military Footstones in Honor of my father, my hero and my best friend. He passed away in 2006 and I miss him dearly.
I have added 1000's of names and photos to the North Elba Cemetery and St Agnes Cemetery in Lake Placid NY. I will be happy to transfer management to anyone related to the beloved who wants it.

Hi Connie,

These are Geoff's Grandparents who raised him. We are requesting this site be transferred to us as well as his Great Grandparents David and Grave.

I need to make corrections. Geoff's Nan didn't die here, in New York she died in Indiana.

Thanks again for all of your hard work. You know we appreciate you thoughtfulness.

Fondly, Sharron & Geoff.

Note of Appreciate
Hi Connie,

Just a note of appreciate for your labor of love. You have done a wonderful job with listing most our shared Watson Families on Find A Grave. Your work, personal information, and pictures makes it easier for others in search of shared ancestors.

You and I are share the passion when it comes to researching our ancestors. There is nothing more important than Family!

Thanks again Connie for your devoted work!

Sharron & Geoff.

David (3rd) and Grace Wright - Watson
Hi Connie,

We are wondering if you consider transferring this Find A Grave site to us since David (3rd) and Grace Wright - Watson, are, were Geoff's Great Grandparents.

He has a life time of fond memories of his Great Grandparents at their Farm in Swastika, New York within the Township of Black Brook.

We would like to add David (3rd) and Grace's two children, one being "Nan", Geoff's Grandmother Florence. "Nan" and Arthur (his Grandpa) are who raised Geoff at their home in "The Grove" as you know.

We use to go with "Nan" to care for her parents grave site at Fairview Cem. Then, after the passing of Geoff's Grandpa and Nan we assumed the responsibility of caring for their grave sites since they are his immediate family. Our family plot is just down a short distance from theirs, the Watson - Miller family plot.

Thanks for your kind consideration. It would mean a lot to us Connie.

Fondly, Sharron & Geoff

RE: Donald C Benedict
Yes a distant cousin. Not sure anyone even goes there any more. I live in Oregon and it was in 2012 when we were there and did not seem that it had been visited for a while.
Yes I have heard about all the snow. So whenever you have time and the weather is nice.
Thank you so much for doing this.

Is it possible to take a cleaner picture of the tombstone for Donald C. Benedict by removing weeds and lichen from tombstone so that dates can be seem better.? I would appreciate it very much.

Memorial 128447896. While searching for a similar name I ran across her memorial and noticed her last name on her memorial was spelled differently than on her stone. Just wanted to let you know I suggested an edit to the name but there is no where to explain why with the new edit system.
