Bio Photo IMPORTANT UPDATE - DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS,
I WILL NO LONGER DO GENEALOGY RESEARCH.
(FOR FAMILIES NOT NAMED IN MY FAMILY RESEARCH LIST {BELOW})

Greetings!
As a descendant of many of the memorials I have placed on Findagrave (FAGrv), I wish to foremost, honor their lives & memories by adding as much as I can to their pages.
As a dilettante genealogist I love to delve into family history.
My circle of family names include.
Hawkins
(All families living in New England
or with Northern US roots).
Parkinson, Allen, Batchelder, Bartlett
& Leroy (NY & New England)
Babcock, Clark, Tyrer, Knight,
Wilbur & Irish families (ditto)
Earl family of Western NY,PA & NJ
Waite & Buchanan
(Related to the Earl family)
Ahles, Warner & Reuter
(German immigrants to Western NY)

If you wish to add information or wish to have memorials transfered please use the
SUGGESTION LINK (SAC Suggest A Correction)

Findagrave has guidelines for transfers
(4 generations I think). I will gladly extend beyond the 4 Gen's if you are a serious researcher. Also I believe, that if you wish to honor a deceased distant relation (or a friend) than I will not stand in the way of your efforts.
Some people believe transfer requests should not be made for memorials of friends or for family surnames strictly for genealogical purposes. I don't buy this notion! I believe that genealogists help us as a connection between the living & the dead, distinguishing who we are & whence we came. So, if you are researching a family name & see that I have entered numerous surnames of interest, I would be happy to transfer the whole lot to you
(unless of course I am also researching the same name).
I would be be most grateful if other people would allow me the same courtesy. :^)

Links of Interest:

Please visit Don Gentner's compilation of German immigrants to Western New York from Baden Germany.
The Wiesental~Springville connection

Unfortunately, due to time constraints, I am no longer able to do lookups & genealogical searches for other families research.
This also includes going to Libraries, Courthouses, & Cemeteries to search for records & tombstone information.

I will still make additions & corrections to FAGrv [only using the SAC's (Suggest A Correction) edit link]. When you SAC it is important to be signed on to Findagrave & if you are suggesting family links, please give the name of the person to be linked, their relationship & their memorial number (this makes the process so much easier :^). PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME DIRECTLY ASKING FOR FAGrv CORRECTIONS. Due to the large number of SAC's requests that I receive daily, It may take up to 30 days for memorials to be updated.
AGAIN, USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION for both updates requests and transfer requests. This provides me with both the memorial link and the link to your member number, and then I do not have to search for either item.
Requests left on my "leave a message" page will be at the bottom of my priority list. I am sorry for this inconvenience.

I will try to leave a message on the requesters FAGrv homepage when I have completed the task & I will also try to add data from SAC's to
Werelate.org.

I do have quite a collection of cemetery records & photos of burials in Concord, Collins & parts of Sardinia/ Boston/ Colden (Erie Co., NY) cemeteries.
I'm slowly adding these records to FAGrv & WeRelate.org again as time permits.
My wife & I have submitted many of these records to the Town of Concord Genealogy Library aka

"The Lucy Bensley Genealogy Center"

Anthony Dinella
Dear Thomas, thank you for having posted a grave site for this man. He is the only possibly link I may have to my great-great grandmother, Catarina DiNello, and your help is a step forward in the quest to find this line of my family. Anthony may have been her grandson. I contacted every town clerk and church possible to find death or burial info, and no one has any! Not even the cemetery Anthony is buried in (they don't have his record for some reason). I don't know what the next step is to find him, and learn of his parents, and to then verify that I think he is her grandson (his parents lived with Catarina for a while and are listed in the census together in 1900, living in Buffalo). But no source has any records of any of the family members. -Marilyn DeGanne (my mother's maiden name was an Americanized form of Dinella).

I am so glad they too will get a good home, and that I am able to help you also, you are a very kind person. The Hawkins will be sent, I have to go back to Find a Grave and transfer them to you. I am overwhelmed at your kindness. Thank You!!!

Robert Allen Scharf
John Scharf buried in New Mexico
John Scharf is listed Find A Grave Memorial# 56828450, because his first wife, Anna Barthel Scharf, is buried in St Aloysius Cemetery in a tombstone with his name.

John and son Albert moved to New Mexico around 1920.
John died 30 Nov 1949 in Carrizozo, Lincoln, New Mexico. See Find A Grave Memorial# 6629160.

Perhaps you might edit the first memorial with a link to the second.

Thanks, cousin
Thanks for the great work you've been doing in findagrave.

I greeted you as cousin, under the assumption that we're related.

I tie into the Hawkins family through my great-grandmother, Eliza Jane Hawkins (1847-1909). She is the daughter of John Hawkins (1811-1883) and Jane Solomon (1815-1876). Eliza married Wilber Levi Scott (1848-1925). All of them are buried in the East Otto Cemetery.
