Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm willing to photograph tombstones in cemeteries in N.W. Ohio.

I've been doing genealogy research for over 30 years and have collected a large amount of data.

I believe that the original family data I have makes me the caretaker and not the owner. I'll gladly share what I have with others.

I have a REAL problem with others who are trying to build a mega list of managed sites.

TRANSFERS: With any Find A Grave memorial that I maintain, if you are a closer relative than I, I will transfer. If I have no connection and you have some connection (even friendship), I will transfer.

Abram Pearson Kansas
Hi--I have left a photo of the tombstone for Abram Pearson in Oakwood Cemetery, Osawatomie, Kansas. I have two more photos with a close up of the stone of Abram and his son Thomas. Will sent to you via email if you are interested.

Hi - saw your photo request, sad that there are two pictures, but you can't hardly read either one. I am no where near - so I can't take a new one, but I blew up one of the, and I think the name on the memorial is not spelled the same as on the stone. I read the stone to say Saphronia

RE: Tucker burial site
No, there were no stones. I did a complete search of the area.

I just came across this grave today. I just wanted to let you know that you have notes stating that Linda Brunt name is on grave marker and you mentioned that she may be buried somewhere else. I am her niece and she is still living. She will be buried there with her husband Gerald when the time comes.
Thanks, Gail

Philip Denman
Hi, Jim!

I've been aware of the duplicate memorials for the younger Philip & Sarah Denman, and believe these were most likely created due to confusion over the "missing gravestone" report. It seems likely that this lost gravestone marked the graves of the elder couple of the same name. If you wish, you could contact the gravers involved and ask that they delete the duplicates and upload the pix to the original memorial pages. You might also consider creating memorial pages for Philip Denman Sr and Sarah Crane Denman in this churchyard, as they were evidently buried there.

Best regards,

Philip Denman Jr.
Hello again, Jim!

Philip Denman Jr. was married twice; after Sarah died, he married Abigail. The family links on his page consequently appears like this, showing the names of both wives:
Abigail Denman (1761 - 1841)*
Sarah Brookfield Denman (____ - 1779)*
The order in which their names appear seems to be format-determined by date of death. Is that what seems "weird"?

Best regards,

The two Sarah Denmans
Greetings, Jim!

Have you read my updated memorials for Sarah and Philip? There's apparently some confusion between different generations of Denmans with the same first names. The memorials I created are for the Revolutionary War veteran Philip Denman Jr. (born c.1749, died 1825) and his first wife, Sarah (nee Brookfield) Denman, who was born c.1756 and died "in her 22nd year" in 1779. Since Philip Jr was the son of Philip and Sarah (nee Crane) Denman, it would seem that the Sarah Denman born in 1709 was his mother.

Best regards,

Philip & Sarah Denman
Greetings, Jim!

And thanks for your message. I've updated Philip's and Sarah's memorials to include both the family links you suggested as well as some other info, so you may want to take a look. As a rule I don't transfer pre-1900 burials, but I'd be happy to incorporate any other relevant info you'd like to see in Philip and Sarah's bios, and would also credit you as the source in the "Notes" section.

Best regards,

Thank you
Yes, I think we need an attorney to help sort this out - maybe get a ruling from a judge. I was hoping that there might be an organization with attorneys that would be interested in cemetery preservation, or an interested party with connections to a pro bono attorney. I think the volunteer group has found a reasonable compromise for the farmer and the deceased given the circumstances. Hopefully the town will step up and be part of the solution.

Help for Blossom Farm Cemetery
I have run into a perplexing problem with the long abandoned and desecrated Blossom Farm Cemetery in Fort Ann, NY. The town has claimed ownership although farmers have paid taxes on this property for over 100 years. The town so far has refused to take responsibility for the cemetery. The current farmer is willing to cooperate with the cemetery restoration, but the town has sent him an warning not to use the property. The problem is that part of the cemetery (where remnants of grave markers still exist) is the path by which the farmer's cows access their pasture. There is no other access because the adjacent land is under lease and being cultivated by another farmer. The cows have been restricted to their barn since last winter and are stressed. The farmer is stressed by his cow's distress and the cost to feed them and he suffered a seizure recently. The volunteer Friends of Blossom Farm Cemetery (not a 501(c)3 due to the expense) developed a plan with the farmer to find the grave marker remnants in the cow path, document their location and move them to a fenced in portion of the cemetery to preserve them from further damage from the cows hooves. The local American Legion argues that the entire cemetery acreage should be preserved even though there are no standing markers left and no one knows the exact parameters of the original cemetery. The long time Town Historian who obviously never attempted any preservation, argues that it is illegal to move grave markers even a few feet despite the fact that the remnants have already been scattered by human and animal activity. Neither the farmer nor the town nor the volunteers have the money for a survey or legal assistance at this time. In two weeks, Skidmore College professors are scheduled to be there with specialized equipment to find as many of the long buried grave markers as possible. Do you have any ideas for resources to help? It is such a shame. The cemetery was active in the early 1800's with at least two Revolutionary War veterans. They deserve more respect and somehow a compromise that does not violate law needs to be found.
