Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy research for over 15 years. I enjoy taking photos and adding the information to this site in hope that it will help someone researching their family. I especially enjoy filling volunteer photo requests because it combines my love of photography, genealogy and volunteerism. If you would prefer I remove information on a family member please let me know and I will delete it. If you see any mistakes or have additions to my postings, please let me know and I'll make corrections.

Tip: Please include the gravesite location when requesting a photo. Most cemeteries only give out gravesite information to relatives. This can be done by calling the cemeteries directly.

hi BK, i have a question
i made a photo request for a memorial page you put up for Berinthia "Berry" Berenson Perkins (Find A Grave Memorial# 76415541)but there seems to be a problem with it. here is what i got in an email from someone who tried to locate this:

"There is no monument or cenotaph to the 9/11 victims in Green-Wood. Some identified remains were buried in marked graves by families or by the City, and those individuals are listed in the cemetery's online burial list. But there is no cenotaph memorializing unidentified remains.

"Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it. If you can fix the problems that were reported and believe a photo can be acquired, please feel free to make a new request.

"Link to memorial page for Berinthia Perkins:"

so i am wondering if you actually saw some sort of gravesite for her or was it a 9/11 memorial? thanks. orleans.

RE: Rider family
Sorry, I don't remember seeing John and Nellie's gravestones there; I'm fairly certain they weren't in the same plot with the four Riders I photographed (unless they're in unmarked graves). It's a HUGE cemetery and I spent a couple hours walking the rows until I found the graves I was hunting for my own research. I'm so glad I happened to find yours along the way (and that they were in the shade)!

Thanks so much for the photo of her headstone. It was helpful in identifying her father, William Woodhull!

Thanks so much for the photo. I was looking for info on her death date, so it was helpful to see the correct year.

Could you possibly put the photo on her husband's site also? (57241717

Thanks so much for your assistance.

Electus Baccus (Backus) Litchfield
I was just curious, there are two memorials for him one showing him buried in NY (yours) one showing IL. I know he was the founder of Litchfield IL but I think lived in NY so there might be a memorial stone in both. You have his correct death date, but in my searching of him I couldn't find a burial. The other interesting thing is that the photo of the gravestone in both memorials is the same. Can you help me?
