Bio and Links
A short walk through Trinity Churchyard in 2004 got me interested in older cemeteries. A few years later, I found it difficult to research my family geneology. I started adding names here to maybe help others with their research. I'm also a big Revolutionary War buff and I have been searching for graves of anyone who somehow participated in the Revolutionary War.

Ben Fletcher
Captain Francis Marsden
Hello Dan,

Would like to thank you for adding this gent, he is a distant relation. My Great Grandmother was a Marsden. Is he a relation of yours too? I have added a picture of his monument (I believe the grave has been moved when Wakefield Church turned into a Cathedral).

I understand that he died at Burntwood Lodge (Hall). Not sure if this was his father’s house or some relation as I understood him to have lived in Kettlethrope Hall. I understand he had a sister called Hana Maria who married a John Carr of Hornby (a relation to the Yorkshire builder, John Carr of York).

I read that he was known as “Frank” by other officers and that he was “well pounded” at the Battle of Bunker Hill, but did his duty. Unfortunately he never recovered.
All the best

How are you related to Moses?

Matthew Olstein MD First Hebrew
I sent you a wonderful obituary from the Highland Democrat Nov 2, 1918- Will you add it to your memorial?
I would like to highlight his memorial for the Peekskill First Hebrew Congregation- and have include all memorials in this cemetery in JewishGen World Wide Burial Project
His grave marker photo has been moved down the cue, I wonder if you could re-order the photos and move it back up. other photos have been added

Shattock Memorials of Essex County MA
I was just looking at your Shattock Memorials in Essex County, Massachusetts. I notice you are collecting Revolutionary War memorials. I have several virtual cemeteries of soldier memorials. If you can, please leave virtual flowers for my WIlliam Hoyt and son Benjamin who were in the Revolutionary War. I have their story in my findagrave memorials and my profile.

William Francis Grealis
I declined your edit for birth of William because his death certificate was very clear to read April 3, 1907 and I didn't find his birth record. I have since found a record that states April 3, 1908 like you suggest so I have changed it. Thank you for you input.

Thomas Barrow
I have been searching high and low to try to find out why John McComb (1763-1853, famous New York Architect) refers to Thomas Barrow as "MY BELOVED UNCLE". They were both involved in Trinity Church but i cannot find the family tie, and It's driving me nuts. Also, the relationship of the same John McComb to William Pers "my greatly esteemed uncle" who died of yellow fever in 1798. Were these men somehow related to his mother, Mary Davis? I can't find out ANYTHING about her. Any leads would be sincerely appreciated.
