Edits for year of birth
I have added some edits to include the year of birth to several of you memorials for the "Backer" ground in Saugerties Twp, Ulster, NY. I do this because uses listing as resources, and their searches look for an approximate "Year of Birth" as a primary search criteria. So if you allow my edits, you will be greatly assisting the geaneaology community.

Hello Ruth, I submitted an edit to add her month and year of death. The source was a burial notice that appeared in the Catskill Recorder Newspaper 12/19/1913. I added a copy of the notice to her memorial. Paul Turner, Karker Family Descendant.

RE: Dr. Lester Sonking obituary
Thank you for changing his place of death to Kingston. I agee with you that obits sometimes contain wrong info, but the place of death that is listed in the local newspaper is more likely to be correct than the birth that occurred many years earlier. I don't blame you for leaving his place of birth blank. I did some further checking on He apparently took vacation cruises to Nassau, Bahamas in 1949 and Bermuda in 1955 where upon reentering the USA his passenger ship record says his place of birth was New York, NY. However, a 1954 passenger ship record says he was born in "Russia". But the clincher is that there is an earlier Petition of Naturalization for him (dated July 1927) that indicates that he was born in "Russia". Thanks for rejecting my original correction because apparently he was born somewhere in "Russia", which could have been anywhere in the early 20th century czarist empire. His original surname was Sasonkin.

Lester Sonking
Why did you reject my edits for Dr. Lester Sonking buried in Montrepose Cemetery, Kingston, NY.? The information that I provided on his place of birth and death comes from his newspaper obituary.

RE: Margaret Mattes
O.K., I accepted Phillip's name change. As long as you are certain Phillip is related, and the name was misspelled on the stone. I was not aware you were related. So I'm sure you know more yhan me about the family. Good luck

I see you have not accepted this edit request. Can you please look carefully at the photo I posted. If you enlarge it as much as possible, you can see there are two ts in the last name. I made sure before I sent the request. It would match up with the son, Phillip Mattees
