I saw your edit for Mary Gleason which I accepted. Are related to Mary? If so how?
|Ken Thompson||RE: COTTON family|
THAT explains the COTTONS i'd found in Michigan, that i couldn't account for. My g-grandmother was Mara Cotton, daughter of George Washington Cotton. This may explain why she & her husband Nicholas Laubenthal moved to Mt Pleasant Michigan, after the Great Black Swamp (Northwest Ohio) was logged off.
|Ken Thompson||COTTON family|
I see that you have a number of COTTON memorials. So do I -- originally from New Hampshire, moved initially to Ohio & Michigan, then spread from there. Here's a link to my COTTON virtual cemetery, if you'd care to compare notes.
My COTTON ancestor Revolutionary War veteran (Benjamin Cotton) is buried just down the road a piece, in Seville OH.
|Ken Thompson||RE: Louisa Lloyd Mercereau|
Also have a memorial for Krueger, Marilyn 51696970 in Toledo Memorial Park -- would that be one you'd want?
|AAW||Roff, "Evergreen Cemetery"|
You should know that there is no such thing as a so-called "Evergreen Cemetery" located in Manhattan. Those dying in Manhattan in that period, like Ms.Roff 163454105) would have been buried in the "Cemetery of the Evergreens" located in Brooklyn/Queens, if it says "Evergreen cemetery" on their death certificates.
Almost no one dying in Manhattan in that period is buried in Manhattan because the city forbade the vast majority of new burials within city limits after the 1840s. The vast majority dying in Manhattan were buried in the so-called "rural cemeteries" in Brooklyn/Queens (Evergreens, Cypress Hills, etc.)
If you call Cemetery of the Evergreens and give a death date, they usually will give you a plot location.
Eventually I will inform Find a Grave that the creation of an "Evergreen Cemetery" in Manhattan was a mistake, but first I wanted to inform everyone who wrongly thought their memorials are located there.

|Denise Haviland||RE: Waterman graves|
This has been easier than I thought it would be!! I have added Lucy's picture and hope to get back this afternoon to take my own photo for Timothy's(that may take a little digging around!) Will also try for a better photo of Lucy's stone.
|Denise Haviland||RE: Waterman graves|
Hello! If you can change the graveyard name on yours that would be the easiest I think. Then I can add my pictures to yours and delete mine. Drake Cemetery is how the Otsego County cemetery map has it listed. It is in the Township of Otsego in the hamlet of Pierstown. BUT, for some reason Find A Grave does not have Otsego listed as a township, only as a county. But they do have Pierstown listed under Otsego County so that should do it! Thanks! DH
|Denise Haviland||Waterman graves|
After finding a stone today for Lucy Tanner Waterman (1791-1855), wife of Timothy (1784-1853) in the Drake Cemetery north of Cooperstown on Pierstown Rd, I added her to the Find A Grave database. I found an old picture of Timothy's stone, also at Drake Cemetery, and added him to the database as well. Then, I discovered you already had them both listed in a "Warren Cemetery". I assure you they are in Drake(as is their daughter Elvira); and know of no Warren Cemetery in Otsego County (there is one in Warren, NY in Herkimer Co.) However there are a LOT of Warrens buried in Drake Cemetery and perhaps it once went by that name. That would explain the confusion. How would you like to untangle our memorials and get the Watermans in the right place? If you can change the cemetery name on your memorials-I will just delete mine. Or, if you wish I can turn my memorials over to you (at least they'd be in the right physical location!)and you can add all your info and then delete your "Warren Cemetery" memorials. Let me know! DH
