Bio and Links
Bio Photo I work part time and enjoy going to cemeteries and hopefully I'm preserving someones' family history. I am in Sullivan County, NY and just recently started going to cemeteries and taking as many pictures of headstones and adding them to this great site. If there is anyone that wants me to take pictures in the Callicoon, Hortonville, Jeffersonville, North Branch, Liberty, White Sulphur Springs, Youngsville, Livingston Manor, Roscoe area...just let me know. I've been in a very old cemetery and lots of the inscriptions are almost gone...I find my searching very comforting knowing that I'm getting family history for someone! Feel free to contact me! HAPPY HUNTING!!! Holly
Names I'm researching:
In USA BOSSLEY/WYLAM/HUGGLER/ABPLANALP/KEHRLEY/and so many other German, English and Switzerland names.
AND CANNING, EVELEIGH, HEAD, HICKS, MANUEL, MINTY, WATKINS, WELLS and many other Newfoundland, Canada families.

Incorrect Cemetery
Please note your entry of Rosemary B. Lazar 1926-2013 was entered in St. Mary's Cemetery, Montgomery. Orange County, N.Y. Please note that the correct cemetery is St. Mary's in ULSTER County, MARLBORO, N.Y. .This is stated in obituary you provided. Please edit this. Thank you very much for your help.

RE: Photo
Thank you so much! I'm hoping to be in your area maybe next summer. Some of my ancestors are from Ulster and Sullivan Counties - Benton, Elting, Lair, and Sheeley - and I would love to see the towns where they lived.

Merry Christmas!

Martin Benton
I'm working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of Co. M, 15th NY Heavy Artillery. Could I have your permission to use the picture you posted of Martin Benton's grave in this compilation? He is a distant cousin of mine. I will cite you as the source.

Thank you.

William Batsford #Find A Grave Memorial# 52852342
Hi Holly.

I'm working on researching the family of William Batsford, and have suggested several edits for his children.

Can you tell me (if you remember) if there might not be headstones for some of the family? I guess what I'm really asking is "Are all the headstones in that cemetery photographed?"

I'm interested in William's son, Marshall Leander Batsford, died 1900. His death certificate says they buried him in "Long Eddy", so I just created a memorial for him.

Thank you,
Mary Van Dyke

Ida Sprague Paye
I read the hand written note.
She had daughter, Sadie, w/Herman Paye (Herbert's cousin) I was wondering where you got this note?
I am looking forward to researching the "Decker" name listed for Sadie. I had lost her after she divorced Robinson. (The Paye Family is my line)
