Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/16 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

RE: Uzal McCarter #131662718
After I sent you that note, I googled him and found a picture of the house referred to in the article - WOW! It is a beautiful home. The article about it was from 2014, so someone is still enjoying the lovely property.

Uzal McCarter #131662718
I like to read old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and try to match the stories and articles to memorials here on F-A-G. I found a little story in the Evening World (New York, NY) on 11/2/1916 about a home purchase by Uzal McCarter. I thought you might like to see it.

It is titled "Freedman's House Sold."

Edward Toy's memorials
I was saddened to read that Edward Toy had passed. He had created Find A Grave memorials for my 3xs Great Grandparents and one of their daughters in the Eden Valley Cemetery, Eden, NY. His work was appreciated very much.

I discovered his passing as I was in process of requesting that he transfer these 3 ancestors to me. Are you now managing Mr. Toy's work? If so,
would you, please, transfer the following to me?
Augustus Bentley #73326341
Thankful Bentley #73326306
Betsey Bentley #73326381

If you do not manage these, do you know how I request a transfer?
Thank You, Cathy Zabel #47750547
