RE: Anstice - Fenner
Yes, that was me. I typically copy and paste into the bio so I have the info in front of me when making additions and then delete what I don't want there. My bride rushed me to Happy Hour and I didn't get it deleted before I left.

Thanks for the info. I added George who was a son Dean K. Fenner and put in a photo request for him. I had the mother's name as Buckingham, but saw that someone hads duplicated my Memorial and put Burkingham. A careful look at the stone does show it as Burkingham, so I changed the spelling on my Memorial. That could have been an engraver error. Do you know for sure? What is your connection to this family?

Yes Eugene married Ida Ann Bell and they had 7 children. Gladys, Winifred, Eugene, Agnes, Vincent, Bernard & Priscilla. I was researching and found the Hayes connection I was shocked cause Agnes was a very dear friend of my parents and I have many pictures of her and her family. I saw Priscillas stone but Agnes passed away Oct 13, 2012 and it listed Priscilla as surviving in Briarcliff, NY. If you do a tree I'm sure I can give you some info.

RE: Ireland - Assumption Cem. Peekskill, NY
You are very welcome I will be going back so I will try to get some of the other requests you put in. Do you have a tree in ancestry? I might be able to help you I think we may have some names in common. Also Red and Muriel, Kevin & Jimmy lived across the street from me when I was a kid and I went to high school with Frank DiBari. Small world! Donna

I just noticed that you added Katherine and Wm Biggs in Stroudsburg Cemetery. They are not there. They are in Laurelwood. I have added the photo and have since deleted it from my computer. If you would like to delete your memorial, I can transfer the one with the photo and obit to you. Sorry about that.

RE: Maple Shade Cem. Ridgefield, Ct.

I would set my GPS for Maple Shade as the street and any number your GPS will accept for the number. The entrance is at the intersection of Maple Shade & North. Its a sharp turn from Maple Shade. Need to make a big swing into the cemetery.

Section 3 is the only section in this cemetery that has a mausoleum (NewTon) Use the map of this cemetery on Findagrave it will show you where section 3 is. Also keep in mind that there are actually 6 cemeteries at this location, so make use of the map to make sure you are in Maple Shade.

I will send you an attachment with the markers as of 1934.
