Bio and Links
I started on geneology where my mother left off.
She was from New York. I am searching for BRANNAN, BRANNEN and other spellings, Hawxhurst, BIRCHER, MATHEWS and STYLES among others.
My father's family was primarily in PA. There I'm looking for ANSPACH, MOYER, REINHART and others who've married into the family.
Learning about these families, their lives and times has been an incredible history lesson.
I appreciate the photos and names that people have posted relating to my family and your help in connecting the various members as they've departed from their places of birth. It's nice to bring them back together through findagrave.
When I have the opportunity to travel someplace, it is my pleasure to photograph family members and many others too. I hope that some of these names will be just the person you've been looking for.

RE: re Clara Eddy
I actually could have sworn I saw her grave but there are a few that have fallen and they are face down. I can't touch things like that for fear of hurting myself or the stone . It would be nice if the cemetery would do it but they don't.. Although this is a well taken care of cemetery

RE: John Byington
Actually, that was me that contacted you to change it to "half brother". Sarah does have a half brother named John, but she does not have a brother named John. The problem is that you are claiming that John is also buried in the cemetery, but that doesn't fit with other information. What sources led you to state that Sarah's brother is buried there?

John Byington
On the Memorial for Sarah Byington Budd (#52928924), you stated that "her brother John is also buried here". I looked through the online memorials and could not find a memorial for Sarah's brother. Do you have any more information about his burial? I've seen other online opinions that claim he died in New Cannon, Connecticut. I'd like to be able to locate the grave to see what further evidence it gives.

RE: James Vail Gillett
Mother of James Vail Gillett is Elizabeth Currey She married Ezekial Gillett on July 1 1824. On Ancestry the family has a photo of her Grave Stone.
Grahamsville, Sullivan, New York, USA
Buried: Grahamsville Rural Cemetery

The Cemetery stone States: Elizabeth Currey wife of Ezekial Gillett Born June 29 1806, Died: March 27 1867.
The Book of our family called: The Currey family in the Hudson Highlands, written by Philip F Horne states the same information.

Mary J. Styles Lowe
Hi Janet,
Do you know why Mary J. Styles Lowe's name is on the monument belonging to the Walker Family?

I have been trying to find the connection. I don't think Mary is buried in this lot according to the lot maps of the cemetery. Maybe you don't know, but thanks for posting her obit on her memorial page. That didn't answer any questions re the connection. Maybe she was just a good friend of George walker and his wife, Frances. His wife is buried elsewhere.

RE: Memorial 41677919
Hi Janet,

The following information will not be new to you, but I decided to send it anyway. It was written by Alta Cecil, a great granddaughter of Sarah Vernooy Bevier Gillett.


Nathan Vernooy Bevier b. February 11, 1798 in New York, d. July 23, 1885 in Illinois.

He married Sarah Anne Brannan (b. on December 24, 1825 and d. February 21, 1911, age 85) in December 1841 and moved to LaFayette, Stark County, Illinois in 1856.

His children were: John, Jane, Elizabeth, Abraham (Abram), and Nathan.

Abram's tombstone was found in LaFayette Cemetery and reads: "Abram N Bevier, Jan 2 1843 - Jan 5 1907 Co. A. 11th Ill. Vol. Cav. Elizabeth M Frail, his wife Nov 22 1851 - Dec. 1,1923.

Information gleaned from the letters written by Sarah Bevier Gillett mentions this family often. It is through these letters and the obituary saved by her that I could give the date of Nathan's death and the names of his children. The letters refer always to Nathan's wife as "Sarahann", spelled that way.
