Philo Davison
Hi Jean,
Thank you for providing the information on Philo's family. I've added the names of his children but found that the memorial numbers provided did not match. If you have alternative ones I'd be happy to update Philo's memorial with in-line links for these.

Amazonia and James Crytzer
Hello Jane,

I made an edit on the two above people in Allegheny Cemetery, last night. They are husband and wife and I added birth dates. And I received an automated confirmation today. Problem is, it now shows Amazonia's spouse to be Matilda Copperfield, rather than James Crytzer. James' site number is 107057266 and Amazonia's is 107057198, on their memorial pages. I have no idea why Matilda Copperfield would now be listed as Amazonia's spouse. Kind of funny. Amazonia's maiden name is Matthews, and my Mother is a Matthews. Amazonia would be my 1st cousin 3 generations ago.

Could you please look into what I did wrong or what the system did wrong to put a woman as Amazonia's spouse. Thank you so much.

Jean, Can you tell me anything you might have on Jacob Rudy, son of Christian Rudy. Under Christian Rudy, you have Son, Jacob Benjamin, 1796. Jacob's gravestone only state Jacob Rudy. Do you know if Benjamin was in the records for the Moravian church. You wrote many of the children as son, daughter with no names. Is that how it was listed also in the records? I appreciate all you do and am forever grateful for opening up all this Rudy, Blickensdferfer information to me, a descendant.

Jesper C. Shull Photo
We visited the Bitley Cemetery and we were able to get a clearer copy of Jesper Shull's gravestone by removing some moss. I have uploaded this more recent photo for you to review.

Sarah Ann (Decker) Trumbull - Again
Hi again, Jean,

Trying not to be a pest, but one more small bit of help if you can:

Sarah's husband, Augustus Trumbull, remarried after Sarah's death. His second wife's name was Emma (or Emilie/Emily). I have that from census records. One tree I've seen gives her name as Emily Hadley (birth name, or name by a previous marriage, I can't say). What I'm wondering is whether or not Augustus is buried there.

I have an 1895 date of death for him, and the 1892 NY state census shows him still living in the Town of Bath. So I assume he is buried somewhere nearby, but since I know next to nothing about second wife Emma/Emily, it could be that he was buried with her, and wherever her family was from.

RE: Winfield S Becker - Memorial# 44889793
I try to catch typing errors when I copy and paste - I missed the alignment error.

Best wishes, Dana

Sarah Ann (Decker) Trumbull
Hi Jean,

Thank you so much for adding the memorial page and photo for Sarah ( She was one of my maternal great, great grandmothers.

The stone is sadly very worn, but I'm wondering if at least parts of the inscription are legible when you see the stone in person.

From the photo, it appears to read "Died June 11(?), 1870(?). Then, I believe the next line down reads "Age..."

I have her as born 1821, but that is less than 100% certain. I have the 1865 NY state census record showing her alive, and the 1870 US census record (enumerated 26 Jul 1870) showing her children and her widowed husband, so that date would fit.

If you live in the area, I would greatly appreciate if you could stop by the cemetery sometime and let me know what you can make out of the inscription.

Thank you again, for this and all your work on Find a Grave.

Fred (aka Severian)
