Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/16 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

Edward Toy's memorials
I was saddened to read that Edward Toy had passed. He had created Find A Grave memorials for my 3xs Great Grandparents and one of their daughters in the Eden Valley Cemetery, Eden, NY. His work was appreciated very much.

I discovered his passing as I was in process of requesting that he transfer these 3 ancestors to me. Are you now managing Mr. Toy's work? If so,
would you, please, transfer the following to me?
Augustus Bentley #73326341
Thankful Bentley #73326306
Betsey Bentley #73326381

If you do not manage these, do you know how I request a transfer?
Thank You, Cathy Zabel #47750547

Eleanor Ashton Dewees Ward

I SAW that listing, and I ignored it because I thought it was about someone else (Grant?) Anyway, I am glad you figured it out! I don't think there is supposed to be a third "e" at the end of DEWEES. DEWEES is how I got it for her and for her daughter. Thank you so much for creating the memorial.

RE: Joseph Juliano
You're the best! I would love to see the death certificate. We didn't think we were related because of the dob and the wife. My great grandmothers new husband died before I was born so it's hard to get family input. Thanks again

Hopefully this will help :-)

RE: Phillip Alexander
He wasn't in the war. Philip (my grandmother's father...she's still alive-Rachel) is the next to the youngest son of Patsy Alexander. His wife, Mayme Alexander is also laid to rest at Eastern. He is also the great uncle to Muhammad Ali. Cashus Clay, his (Ali's) father is the grandson to Patsy Alexander.
