Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in Genealogy research for the past twenty years and joined the Find-A-Grave community about 10 years ago. I have found the experience a way of honoring those who came before us. I was born in Wheeler, New York and grew up in nearby Naples. For the most part of my adult life, I worked for Ontario County government in various positions, ie. Director of Planning, Commissioner of Social Services and Deputy County Administrator. I am now retired and live in Florida, though try to get back to the Finger Lakes in the summer.

Feel free to provide me further information on my entries and of course, I would be pleased to transfer the maintenance of an entry.

Powers of Naples
Hi Gary:

I was wondering if you could transfer maintenance of Edward (73814790) and Julia Daly Powers (73814794) to me as they are my great-grandparents?

Additionally, also transfer Thomas (73814795) and Ella (73814791) and Julia (73814793) -- I assume Julia is unmarked as there is no photo with her details?

Also James (73814792)

Thanks! Pat Collins

Cummings, Ontario County
I had written to you previously, requesting you remove the links for Lyman & Patty Cummings, and Alonzo E Cummings from the Find-A-Grave page for my husband's ancestor Alonzo Cummings. They are not related. Your Alonzo E., a twin, is Find A Grave # 158404834, buried in Fairview Cemetery, Naples.

My Alonzo Cummings is of Canadian ancestry. Alonzo's parents are Jesse Cummings, immigrant from Canada, and Diana Elizabeth, b. Ontario Co, NY. His Find A Grave # 70605442. On my Alonzo's Find A Grave is a link to his wife's Find A Grave page which includes her obituary. The obituary states that Alonzo's brothers Jesse and James attended her funeral. Lyman & Patty did not have a child Jesse. My ancestor Jesse and Diana did have children Jesse, James, Alonzo, amongst others.

I created a new Find A Grave page for Alonzo E, son of Lyman & Patty but Alonzo E's page is linked to my Alonzo Cummings. The only way to fix this error is to edit MY Alonzo's page # 70605442 and remove parents Lyman & Patty from the relationships section. Only the page administrator, you, are able to do this.

I appreciate you removing Lyman & Patty Cummings as parents in the relationship page of my ancestor Alonzo Cumming's Find A Grave page # 70605442 . I would be happy to have the page admin transfered to me, if you like, and I would be happy to transfer Alonzo E's page # 158404834 to you as well. Thank you.
