Bio and Links
If you see an ancestor to you that I have uploaded, please request a transfer. I am happy to do so, even if it falls outside of the Findagrave guidelines. I have tried to help others find their ancestors as others have helped me.

Always eager to meet a new cousin along the way too. If you share an ancestor with me, I'd love to hear from you and trade info / pictures / whatever I have. Will take what ever you have.

You are entitled to use any photo I have posted. I took them so others could see the gravestones of their ancestors and families. If you happen to get rich publishing some of my photos of gravestones please share a percentage with me. You are entitled to use any photo of a person I have posted, We have a wonderful family treasure of photos. I am always curious if others have ones I don't have of my family members.

If you have a picture of a family member of mine please be sure to contact me, I'd love to see it.

If you are doing research on your ancestors in Onondaga County I suggest the following links.

Charles A Locke, Find A Grave Memorial# 88508848.

Please look closely at the grave stone, it looks like to me the death date could be Nov. 18, 1897 instead of Nov. 15, 1897. See what you think?

Thanks for the photo and posting of Isaac and Mary Barnes. God's Acre Cem., Brutus, Weedport, Cayuga.

Would like to know your sources for the family links.

Particularly ...

Birth date and place for Isaac. (stone gives no age at death)

Rev War service (several Isaacs served; appear to have been born in CT)

Marriage date and place??

Mary's maiden name.

Mary's birth as 30 Sep (stone only says 88 yrs at death 4 Mar 1849) and place as Southampton.

Unable to find documentation to support.

Thank you so very much for the transfer of my relative. I appreciate it. I really miss my home area of Onondaga and Cayuga County so much as my roots go so deep from there. Wishing you all a wonderful summer from Florida.

RE: Dorotha Rose Pickard Vanselow
Thank you. I sincerely appreciate your help. You have been very receptive to my requests.
As you know, Henry Mettler married Jessie Belle Auyer. Henry was my great grandmother's brother. Henry died before my time.
I had the pleasure of knowing both my great grandmother, Laney Mettler Tryon, and my great aunt, Ruth Mettler Johnson. In their final years they both lived with my grandfather, George Tryon in Auburn, NY.

RE: The book
According to the U.S. Sons of the American Revolution Application the following:

Benjamin Jones

Birth Date:

SAR Membership:


Application Date:
9 Sep 1926

Jemima Galvin (Delavan)

Rhoda Jones

Not trying to cause a problem, just trying to get the all "unraveled" and right. I don't know if there is another Ben Jones that this memorial is for??? Do you have American Rev. application for this person? I know information can be right/wrong. I have set up some memorials, too, but not to the extent that you have. Can you let me know?

RE: The book
Did you notice the information that you sent to me;
Free ebook online

Book page 271 (digital scan page 282)

May 17, 1718.
Aged 87 Y'rs.

his Wife
Died May 25
Aged 77 Y'rs

That his wife died almost a hundred years after his death. Seems strange to me. That says to me that she was born about twenty years after he died. I feel records are mixed up.
