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.

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.

Transfer of Memorial #41642565, William McClellan
Hi Dan - I would love to have William McClellan transferred to me. He is my 5x great grandfather and my patriot in the DAR. I am descended from his son, Col. John McClellan, and have done a lot of research on the family. Thank you for creating the memorial! Fran Quarles

You are so kind to transfer this memorial to me! Maybe I'll achieve a little sanity this fall by luring my husband away from that time wasting Fantasy Football!!

Capt. Peregrine White, Sr.
You took a photo of a news article for the death of Capt. Peregrine White, Sr. He died in 1704. He lived in Marshfield, Plymouth, Mass. He was born on the Mayflower. Anyway, would it be acceptable to you if I could gain a copy of this article from you??? I would really appreciate having it for my files as I build one branch of my family tree. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for your time. and my name is Heather

RE: William Irvine tombstone
I appreciate your allowing me to use your photos.

I assume that you think that there is no reason to pursue trying to get a better photo of the inscription.

Thank you so much.
