John Webber & Sailor' Snug Harbor I noticed that you had created a very nice memorial for John Webber, who is interred at the Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery. Are you a descendant of John? I'm also a descendant of a mariner who resided at Sailors' Snug Harbor and is interred at the SSH Cemetery. If you are interested in more information about recent efforts regarding the status of SSH Cemetery and the SSH Records, you can contact me at the email address listed on my member name profile.
You must not have received my email. I did return to St. Vincent's and unfortunately there were no more Cavanaugh headstones in the area where I took the previous ones. I know that isn't the result either of us were hoping for but that is where it stands right now. If you like I can send you copies that I do have if they would be of any use for your book. I do have one rather nice one that just has the family name on it, that might serve as a place holder. Let me know if that would help.
I can arrange to be at St. Vincent's on Sunday as long as it isn't pouring. That makes a lousy photo day. I am 98% certain I got all of the headstones for the family but I can recheck. One other thing I can recommend is calling St. Vincent's and getting the locations of the plots. You may also have some luck contacting the Madison Historical Society, When is your book deadline?
I am sorry I wasn't more clear. I photographed the entire cemetery as of October 2014. Members of my family have lived in Madison NJ since the 1850's. A number of them are buried in St. Vincent's. Unfortunately some of them including my my 3x times and 2x great grandparents have no headstones. Others do have them. I will look in the area where the Cavanaughs are the next time I was there.
RE: Cavanaugh Family Thanks for contacting me. I spent half of 2013 and april to October 2014 walking all of St. Vincents. I have at least 100 direct line and extended family members buried there. I wanted to find them all. To my dismay there were more than a few without headstones. I can't state that we didn't miss anyone because being human that is likely. I didn't have any plans to return to the cemetery in the near future, except to visit the family graves. I will keep my eyes open for any more Cavanaughs. I might be able to find some obituary information at the Madison Library my next visit there. If you give me information I'll see what I can find.
McTigue in St Joseph Found his Family plot earlier this year. I have photographed all the markers and submitted corrections to the creators. However it started raining and the rain will show on the originals but I will retake them in the spring and re-post better photos. You are welcome to submit photo requests for the following McTigue's Mary - 1824 -1901 Wife of John Sr # 141249836 John Jr 1859 - 1931 # 18409469 Mary 1857 - 1874 # 141251205 Darby 1865 -1922 # 18645622 Martin 1865 - 1922 # 18645593 Catherine C 1868 - 1915 #
Judging from records found on Hugh's # 18645604 Darby's, John J, Julia C, # 18409405, and Rose Conners # 112047516 I have submitted corrections to help compile the family. If you know the family tree please send the layout to me so I can correct my edits. And if you are Related I can transfer the ones I created..
RE: David Sammis You are very welcome. I am so happy I was able to find anyone in that cemetery. There is no real organization there. It is somewhat difficult to find someone if you don't know where they are placed. Thank you for being a part of our community. :)
Webber photo request, Snug Harbor Hi, Ms Sammis. I thought I'd start informing photo requesters that I've been to Sailor's Snug Harbor Cemetery and from what I can tell there are only 16 marked tombstones left on the site,all have FG memorials and pictures.
John Joseph Nathaniel Webber (Aug. 18, 1829 - Oct., 1909) is not there. The marker may be buried or have disappeared, but if it is one of the many small sometimes numbered 'generic' stones it could be in storage at Snug Harbor Cultural Center. I'm working on permission to cataloge and photograph those stones, I'll let you know whatever I can discover about John Joseph Nathaniel Webber. You might be aware of the following records, but just in case here are links....
