Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am fairly new to Find A Grave, but have been researching for over twenty-five years.

If you find I've contributed an entry on one of your ancestors, chances are I have additional information. Please feel free to email me or request a transfer to your ancestor.

The photos submitted to Find A Grave by me regarding the Collinsville Veterans are posted through the joint efforts of myself and Gene Beals, who passed away in 2013.

RE: Rosaline Antaya Trombley
Hi Patricia,
Thanks for responding. As I’m sure you’ve experienced, a lot of people don’t.

I got involved with the burials in the Old Petersburg Cemetery because I was finding that some of the people that were actually buried in Pleasant View were showing up on Find A Grave as buried in Old Petersburg. So, over the last couple of months I have been able to get lots of duplicates and incorrect burials fixed. I finally just today got the creator of 5 duplicate “Heath” family pages to remove her pages. So the total number of pages in Old Petersburg is now down to 165. I need to look over my notes to see which ones are still awaiting something.

I assume from your note that you don’t live in the Petersburg area. My Mom grew up in Petersburg, down the road from Pleasant View Cemetery. I actually live in Southern California, but still have a lot of family in Monroe and Lenawee counties in Michigan. In fact I will be back there in a few weeks for my niece’s wedding. If I have time, I will try to run by Old Petersburg and see if I can discern anything from Rosaline’s stone. No guarantees though.

I’m a little confused on your “I can not get the restoration committee to work with the genealogy committee to update since the restoration“ comment. I know who the restoration committee is. I got to see the progress on the cemetery several times while they were working on the cemetery. What is the genealogy committee you’re referring to?

You are correct that there are indeed 8 “Trombley” pages in Find A Grave. There is actually one more, but it is listed under “Tromley”. “Rosilyn E. Tromley” is the one that your page is a duplicate to. Glenn Geirland created it on May 15, 2001. I sent him a note a few weeks back asking him to coordinate with you over combining both your pages and deciding which info to present. I assumed he didn’t contact you because I saw no change. That is why I contacted you. Obviously you have more info on Rosaline than he does. I thought if you conferred with him, he might be willing to remove his page even though his was the original. He must have gotten his info from the 1968 cemetery index you speak of in your blog. I just sent him an edit request a couple of days ago to change her last name from “Tromley” to “Trombley”. It isn’t changed as of yet, but it sometimes takes him a few days to respond. Please try to contact him to work out removing one of the records.

Also, have you tried to find an obituary or death notice for Rosaline? I checked the Monroe County Historical Museum Archives Obits listing, and they don’t have one for her. The Petersburg Library has lots of obituaries from The Petersburg Sun newspaper. Actually back then, it was the Petersburgh Sun. Otherwise, the main Ellis Branch of the Monroe County Library has the microfilm for the newspapers in Monroe County. You might try giving them a call to see if they can locate anything on her in any newspaper. Obviously finding an obit would certainly narrow down the inconsistencies in the “facts” in the dates you have uncovered for her.
Let me know if there is anything I could do to help.

Eliza is a great-grand aunt. I would be glad to have the transfer unless someone else is closer related and would like it.

RE: Lightfoot
I am not related but feel free to transfer if you'd like. LIGHTFOOT is my husband 's stepfather's name and we really don't go down that branch because there 's no blood relation. Thanks do much for adding info on memorials.

RE: Clarissa (Benjamin) Van Bergen
Sorry, no, not related. All I know of the Van Bergens is the info that I have posted on their memorials. There is a very nice 1904 Bio book which is where I found most of the info and photo. You might try Googling it to see if it is online somewhere: INDEX TO PAST AND PRESENT OF THE CITY OF SPRINGFIELD AND SANGAMON COUNTY ILLINOIS By Joseph Wallace, M. A. of the Springfield Bar, The S. J. Clarke Publishing Co., Chicago, IL, 1904

RE: Tallman in Tully
Hi Sunnyann!

Thanks for your kind words. It was about -5F with the wind chill the day I took those. I need to get back down there and re-photograph them with some green grass and leaves on the trees. I have a couple showing the arrangement - Most of the Tallman graves are in the front row of the cemetery, in a single line.

Clarks in Hillside cemetery
By the way, Eva M Clark b: 19 Nov 1865 in Peekskill, NY was married to my great uncle (Theodore William Wicht) of Yonkers, NY. Her parents were Benjamine Adam Clark and Mary A Gilbert(s). Benjamine's parents were Benjamine Adams Clark and Emeline F. Lent. His parents were Jacob Dyckman Clark and Abigail Adams. His parents were John Clark and Maria Dyckman. Most of the family members lived and died in Cortlandt and Peekskill area.

Which Clarks are you doing research on? I may have some info on them.
