Francis Lister Hawks transfer
Wow! You didn't need to transfer the memorial to me, but, I will gladly take care of it.

RE: Name on gravestone: Francis L. Hawks, D.D., L.L.D.
Hi! I plan to go to that cemetery soon to photograph each Pott and Hawks stone. Meanwhile, I have a Pott family plot photo and am using the "Connecticut, Hale Cemetery Inscriptions and Newspaper Notices, 1629-1934" for initial information - comparing as I photograph stones. I would imagine that gravestone for this gentleman is pretty prominent/easy to find. Hope so!

I noticed that you put a photo of a newspaper article on her memorial. Would you please put the date of that newspaper? Thanks so much. Lori

Thank you for the article clip
Thank you for also posting the article. Bontrager, Borntrager, boy that could get confusing! Is she related to you?

Also in the cemetery is my mother, Helen Coon. If you feel so led, her Find A Grave # is 111564175. I'll be seeing her real grave in a few weeks when we visit our family in Topeka and Goshen, and my son enrolls at Goshen College (classes and orientation).

RE: Jame Crill
Thank you - I have a few of the children buried here in Lancaster, Erie Co., New York. Trying to connect the family. Too bad we seemed to have lost the mother somewhere. The Crill family was in Lancaster/Alden NY for quite some time - probably close to 15-20 years. Thanks again :)

Nysson - Riverside - # 22771103

I was at this gravesite yesterday, and found that Albert Nysson's wife, Aseneth, is also buried here. Since you have two memorials for Albert W. "Nysson" (# 22771104) and Albert W. "Nyson" (# 22771103), it occurred to me that perhaps plot ownership was the reason.

If one of these memorials/plots should be for Aseneth (Whiting) Nysson, she was born Aug 1947 in Greene, Chenango, New York and died (as shown on her headstone) 26 Jan 1924 in Battle Creek. I took a photo of her headstone which I'm happy to add if you decide to edit one of these memorials for her.
