|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in NYS' beautiful Hudson River Valley; so I grew up surrounded by history.|
I was about 8 when I dug up a Revolutionary War era musket ball in our garden and was awed by the stories it could have told. When my father showed me a coin from the mid 1800s he found in his local boyhood schoolyard, I was hooked on history.
My grandmother's sister lived to a lucid 106 years of age and fed my addiction for stories from the olden days.
And now I have become one of those little old ladies I used to make fun of, happily wandering around cemeteries and record halls.
Home for the last 25 years has been Otsego County in Central NYS; a place with an old abandoned cemetery around every corner.
I like nothing more than uncovering an old stone and giving them back their names and histories and families on FAG.
I try to research each person's background carefully, but if you see a mistake, let me know.
And if you see a relative and want a transfer, let me know.
Feel free to use any pictures or information I post for any reason, no need to credit me.
THE MORE WE SHARE, THE MORE WE LEARN.

Thank you for your additions, corrections and the bio that you placed on his memorial. Since his headstone states that he was born on April 24th, I'll leave that the same.

I can't begin to thank you for all your efforts in New York. I find getting information in New York a real challenge. Because of your efforts I have been able to connect with direct family that I would not have found without your help. Thank you. If in your travels you find additional Cooley's please send them to me and I will connect the New York Cooley's. Thank you again.
Michelle and now Albert have discovered they are family.

You've requested a photo of the headstone of my ancestor, who is buried in the Rightman Cemetery in Burnett County,Wisconsin. Is he your ancestor too?
There is currently no marker to photograph. The cemetery is just a patch of land in the Northwoods that looks no different from the area around it. In fact, we were lucky to stumble upon old documents indicating the location,for If we hadn't the site would be lost to us, possibly forever. We are working on cleaning up the land and will place memorials and photograph them.

Thank you for that information. I deleted the grave. Yes, I was at Middle Village Cem. this summer I took some pictures. We got rained out and didn't get to go back yet. Kathy
Are you by any chance descended from the Quaker Havilands of Westchester Co, NY?
|Karen Hill||RE: Mary Hines in Forest Cemetery in Dunn Co, WI|
Hi Denise, I have found the problem. The Forest Center Cemetery is actually in Spring Brook (two words) in Dunn County while in Washburn County the town is Springbrook (one word).
Don't worry. The thread to cemetery fixes will reopen Oct 1st. I will address this then, and they will change it from Springbrook to Spring Brook, and all of the memorials will be automatically relocated to Spring Brook.
Then someone in your area should be able to locate the grave for you - and the others.

Thank You! Robi
|Karen Hill||Mary Hines in Forest Cemetery in Dunn Co, WI|
Hello, I believe you are the one who placed a equest for a photo of the stone for Mary Hines. I had seen this request two or three times. I asked Find A Grave to remove the requsts because the cemetery was placed in the wrong place.
I did some research and found that there is a Springbrook TOWNSHIP in Dunn County. I do not know what town it is in. So the cemetery place needs to be corrected to Springbrook TOWNSHIP so that photograhers will see it and be able to take the requested photos.
There is a town called Springbrook but it is in Sawyer County which is about 22 miles from my home. But this is a town, not a township.
Yet I keep getting your requests for the cemetery 150 miles from my house.
I hope this helps. You may have to call around to find out the name of the town and the cemetery's address or location.
