Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Beacon NY, and still live here.My moms fathers family came from Ramapo Rockland county NY. Their last name was Cable or sometimes spelled Cabell. Her mothers maiden name was Hickey,they were from the Beacon area.Until I started to research my family history, I thought the Ostranders my dads family were from Peekskill NY Westchester co.That is where my dad grew up. I found out that they were from Ulster co and Orange counties in NY, the area from Kingston to Newburgh.After joining find a grave I also became a member of the Ostrander family association.I bought the hard cover book "Ostrander" a Genealogical Record which has been a great help in my research along with the information from all you people on find a grave.The funny thing is, at one point my in laws lived in Modena NY,where many of the Ostranders are buried.I would like to thank all of you for your effort and information you have provided, it keeps me searching for more. Please feel free to use any of my photos for your family trees also if you would like a memorial transferred to you I will gladly do so.I photographed my local cemeteries looking for relatives, that`s when I saw what time and vandals had done to many of the monuments,with others taking photos there will always be a record of them for future generations.

George Turner
Hi Doug. Its your cousin Tracy O'Leary. I think that George Turner was born in Putnam County, NY. I don't have a town name. He married in 1848 to one Bridget (I believe the name is spelled) Conaughty in Ireland in 1817. Of course, this is all kind of iffy. I've been looking into this side of the family and found some interesting info regarding the Turner line. It looks like they might be descendants of Capt. Elisha Turner out of Scituate, Mass. I'm writing because I thought you may have some more information on this topic. If this is true looks like we may be descended from the Brewsters who sailed on the Mayflower. Sounds a little farfetched but you never know. Let me know if you have any information on this. I left my phone numbers with Aunt Sally if you want to contact me. Thanks bunches. Tracy

Edward H. Rogers
Is anyone a Rogers researcher or relative who may have information regarding a Rogers family that may have left Dutchess County, NY, to go South, possibly to New Orleans area? I am looking to find information (names, dates, etc.) for the parents and relatives of my great-grandfather, Edward H. Rogers, who spent most of his adult life as a lumberman in Tonawanda, NY. His 1909 obit in Tonawanda News says "He was born in Duchess County, this state,in 1836. His early life was spent in the vessel business on the Mississippi river. In 1854 he came to the Tonawandas from New Orleans."
There is no mention of his parents' names or other info regarding any siblings or other relatives of his or previous generation. There is a US Census of 1900 that indicates his parents' place of birth was "Wales" but I don't know how accurate that would be.
Does anyone in Dutchess County have any information regarding this Rogers family? If so please post a public message. THANK YOU!

RE: Stephen and Magdalene Toth
Hi Doug. Thank you for the transfer for Stephen and Magdalena. Frank is my uncle. If you could transfer that as well I would appreciate it. I looked briefly for him last night under his Hungarian name Zolton but did not see him. Thank you

Unreadable Manningm St. Joachim
Could year of death on "unreadable Manning" be 1838? (Although it's probably just a coincidence, I am looking for a Manning ancestor originating from Dutchess Co. who died Dec 25 1838).

BTW, the intro on the cemetery says the first recorded burial was 1866, but John Cantwell's grave says died 1865.

Jeremiah Manning, St. Joachim
You have 2 duplicates of memorials to Jeremiah Manning in St. Joachim, but one is misspelled Jeremia (10993648 & 108049228). I suggest you delete one of them.

RE: Joseph and Alice O'Grady
The parents names are engraved across the top and their daughter and son in law's names are engraved across the bottom. I would have thought they would have engraved each couple one side of the headstone also, but that is the way they did it. Sorry I didn't get right back to you.
Thanks again,
