Francis Enders - Find A Grave Memorial# 119134915
I took a photo of his headstone when I was taking random photos in Section 9 East at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Rochester, Monroe county, NY. When I went to post it, I saw another volunteer had already posted one. However, the birth year you have for the memorial is 1826 and his marker has 1805 (a 21 year difference). You might want to investigate this further or at least make note of it on his memorial.

Margaret Blake
Thank you for your message about the duplication of memorials. I meant to do something about that awhile back, but haven't had much time for Find A Grave the past few months.

The problem with the Margaret Blake memorials are confusing. There are multiple Margaret Blake's buried in the cemetery. The two that appear to be duplicates really are not.

The burials are in two different plots, 184 and 149, and the confusion came about when someone sent me a copy of an old transcription that apparently confused the two as being the same person.

Margaret Mary Blake is listed as being born in 1834 and dying in 1865, making her 31 at the time of her death.

The second burial is for Margaret Blake, infant daughter of James H. and Margaret A. Blake. But in an old transcription it lists her as "born March 20th 1834 and died December 28th 1865", the same dates as those given for the other Margaret Blake, and obviously an error, as no one in their right mind would consider 31 years of age to be an "infant." The infant Margaret's headstone no longer exists, but a stones does exist for the older woman.

I have removed the incorrect dates from the infant's memorial and hope that I will be able to find the correct dates for her soon.

Thanks for going out and looking for the headstones of the Morris'. I'm going to see if I can find contact information of the cemetery and maybe get plot information. Anyway, thanks again!

And lastly, thank you for these photos. You do such a great job. The close-ups and away shots give me a feeling for their resting place. I hope you have a great week.

Thanks again.

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for searching for the gravesite of my little nephew, James. His death cert states the place of burial to be Cedar Hill cemetery but perhaps they didn't place a marker on his site. Oh well, the search goes on. Thank you, very kindly, for taking the time to try and locate him for me. I am so grateful. - Kimberly Johnson
