Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is drawing to a close. I have completed all the cemeteries that I am working on. There are still 4 other cemeteries being worked on by others. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.

The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:

Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries

If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

Rose Flynn McQueen

Rose Flynn McQueen was Arthur Joseph McQueen's 1st wife. According to obituaries and her death certificate, she was buried at St. Rose Cemetery, but your photo clearly shows her her at St. John's with her parents. Do you have any insight on this?

Thank you.

Johnson Gifford 76902125
Hello Paul, I do research on the 134th NY Infantry Regiment. I was looking at the headstone photograph in the memorial you created for Johnson Gifford, he is buried in the Tiona Cemetery, Main, Broome County.

A Johnson Gifford served in the 134th. Her enlisted in 1862, at the age of 30, so the memorial birth year would match that.

And he served in Co. D. In the photograph I can see "Co. D, 13??????". Can you identify the rest of the inscription by examining your original digital image.

Thanks Paul Turner

Thanks for finding and photographing their headstone for me. I was previously told they had no headstone so this was a pleasant surprise.
