My family research started in 1980.
In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

I see you created the Rural Cemetery. But not knowing where it might be located too.
Ive managed to find two references to a "Nyack Rural Cemetery". Though not sure exactly where it might be located, Id suggest adding "Nyack" to the address.
might want to include in the description.
"Rural Hill Cemetery of Nyack"
"Nyack Rural Cemetery"
Just a thought, thanks.

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph the burial place of Nicola Dell'Aglio (especially in this heat!!). I appreciate you indicating the grave location in the absence of a stone. Thanks for your help!

Hi, I see that Roy Wildrick has memorials for two cemeteries. One in Fairmount Cemetery in Warren County, and this one in Free Union Methodist Cemetery. What can you tell me about this - which one is his really buried in?
I found this out while looking for a burial site for a Carl Cochran in Fairmount. He is listed as being buried in the same one as Roy. The cemetery map has "Wildrick" listed on it. After researching, I believe Roy was also married to Carl's wife Helen Geis at one time.
Helen is supposed to be married there in Fairmount as well but I after checking an index, I do not see her listed but maybe that list is out of date.

|Alysia||Question abt. Francis Duffy|
I just finished photographing all of the stones in the St. John's Cemetery in Lansingburgh, NY. You have a memorial for a Francis A. Duffy, #53530276 in there. Do you happen to know if he would be the same person as Frank A. Duffy, #167228538, a memorial I created. The ages are a little off. The stone for Frank says he died aged 56 years. If they are the same I will delete the one I created. Thanks!
