When I was researching my own family, I received a great deal of help from complete strangers who were willing to help me without asking anything in return. I felt the need to pay that forward. So it tickles me beyond words to discover my headstone photos as part of someone's family tree. How sad would it be if after all the photos are taken and posted and researched and documented that no one looked at them or cared that they were there. So to those of you (and you know who you are) who have found my photos and made use of them, thanks for caring and you're most welcome.|
And while I don't always cite my sources on each memorial, for Long Island special thanks goes to Carolee Nichols Diamond and David Roberts for their unending patience and wealth of information, the transcriptions of Elbert N. Carter and longislandgenealogy and Ancestry, (with a nod to the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, various volumes), George Moraitis, Historian for the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson, Steve Gill from the Patchogue Cemeteries Restoration Committee and Marcy from Cedar Grove, who lets me raid her records without complaint.
If you find something that needs correcting, or if you have information you'd like added, please use the SAC and I'll be happy to make the changes.

|David Neller||RE: St. Mary's Churchyard, Walton on Thames|
Many thanks for such a speedy reply and for providing a map link. It's quite frustrating when Find A Grave system will not accept coordinates as maps do add quality to the map page. I shall have to try creating map links for churchyard pages I have also created. I have already added one burial to your page and have others yet to research exact dates for. However, you may like to note that contributor Jwm3rd(#47839158) created a duplicate of St Mary's at Walton on Thames on 07 Nov 2013 but has disabled their contact links so there is no way to let them know - which is also frustrating! Good luck with your own research and thanks again.
|Kim DeFalco||Grace Stevenson|
I am interested to know if you are related to Grace or if you found the headstone for someone else? And who wrote the memorial on the page?
|David Neller||St. Mary's Churchyard, Walton on Thames|
As you are the only contributor with a memorial at
St. Mary's Churchyard, Walton on Thames, Surrey, England I wonder if you also created the page. If so, I wonder if you could also add a map location. I have just started to post memorials for family members buried in that area and a map on the churchyard page would assist me and other family members to locate the graves. Regards and thanks, David
|Kerri Jansson||Truman Gravesites at Cedar Hill Cemetery|
The photos and info you got on the Truman gravestones are wonderful. I'm Stanley V. and Theresa "Tess" M.Truman's great great niece, and the great great granddaughter of Thomas and Mary Truman. Is there any way you could transfer them over to my member page? And are you related in any way to them?

I having been working with Brookhaven Historical Society to make them a extensive list of those buried at New Village Congregational Cemetery in Lake Grove, NY. I see that you have added many souls onto this site and that certainly makes it easier for me. However I have obtained a list of burial permits from 1891-1984 from the Town of Brookhaven for this cemetery. I have some corrections to make to the memorials you have set up. Would you be willing to work with me to make the adjustments?
Perhaps it would be easier if we communicated via email, rathr than my send every name via your public page?
Appreciate your thoughts on this.
According to the permit list, Arthur died on Dec 30, 1891. and it would appear that he was the first interment in to this cemetery which seems noteworthy.
Thank you for considering my plan.

Hi, do you have any family information on Frances? Around 2002-2004, my daughter and I had the pleasure to meet Frances when she would come to Florida for the winter. She sent me some wonderful post cards from New York and she was such a delight to know. I ended up moving from Florida around 2005 and Frances and I lost contact with each other. I would very much like to contact her family if possible.
|Derek Swezey||Joel Sweezy Dickerson - Martha Mapes Dickerson|
I noticed the family history you provided for Martha R. (Dickerson) Darling and hoped you were from that line. My line comes into the picture further back, with Martha R.'s parents, Joel Swezey Dickerson and Martha (Mapes) Dickerson. Joel Swezey Dickerson was the son of Elizabeth Swezey Dickerson, who was the sister of Joel Swezey, b. 1780. They had a tough life starting out, losing their father early. From my research, I have Elizabeth being born 1784, although I see your date is 1774. I'll go back and take a look at my records for clarification. If this is your line and you wanted additional information, I would be more than happy to share what I have. I would love to find anyone out there who knows more about the Dickerson - Swezey connection. Thanks for all your work!

Hi Aislin ,This churchyard has been cleared of many Headstones and kerbstones and a very large area in the center of the churchyard is open space ,the stones have been placed in a large mound at the back of the grassed area ,unable to find any "EARLY" stones in this pile .I have looked over the remaining churchyard stones but unsuccessful in finding any legible "Early " stones.
