|Nikita Barlow||Mary Price|
Because of the discrepancy between the modern calendar and the Julian calendar used in colonial times, my entries dating from this era typically state "born c._____" unless the birthdate appears in several independent sources or is specifically documented by month, day, and year. The Findagrave format doesn't accommodate the "circa" abbreviation in the year section, so rather than make an approximation seem definitive, I put this info in the bio, which is what I did when I created Mary Price's page. Having done the math, I came up with "c.1718", but I'd like to have that confirmed by a period record before dropping the "c."

I have added the years of birth you've provided for:
Susannah Morse # 100853017
Mary Morss # 100850960
Benjamin Morss # 100852825
and wonder what your source is?
You requested that Susannah Morse # 100853017 and Benjamin Morss # 100852825 be linked as spouses but their ages are very different, he being born in: 1638, she in: 1673. I wonder if she had been married to possibly a different Benjamin.
Please send me the sources for your information by going to one of the memorials and using the EDIT tab thanks.
|Nikita Barlow||Barnabas Horton|
I've updated Barnabas' entry to include the birth year 1600, and his birthplace, Mowsley, which I had previously overlooked in the Findagrave localities roster. Thanks for contacting me.
|Nikita Barlow||Barnabas Horton|
The bio I wrote for Barnabas Horton is drawn from numerous sources, and his birthplace has been recorded as both "Mousely" and "Mowsley". It's known that he was about 80 years old when he died on July 13, 1680. Thus he would have been born circa 1600, as stated in the bio. However, the day and month of his birth appear to be among the details of his early life that are uncertain. While it's possible that Barnabas died on the date of his birth, it's curious that the coincidence wasn't noted by his contemporaries, and most accounts of his life don't specify a d.o.b.
|Cari Aiken||Leon Biser|
I have added his birth year to his memorial. Thank you for providing it. Is he a relative of yours? If so, I would be more than happy to transfer the memorial over to you.
|Marshall Bruce||Highland Memorial Requests|
Highland Memorial is refusing to assist Find A Grave in locating gravestones. You have requests in for Fisk. You may want to contact Jim Gallagher(920-540-6492) directly and request the location. Then send to me and I will photograph for you.
|Lisa B||Find A Grave Correction: David Jones|
you sent me a birth year of 1782 for this person.
Please can you tell me the source of the information, is it from the tomb or church records?
Then I'll make a note of that with the date, thanks.

|Roibeard53||RE: Rebekah Pierson|
Again, you are very welcome.
|Roibeard53||RE: Prudence Winans|
You're very welcome. These colonial burying grounds are fascinating.
|Roibeard53||RE: Sarah Ludlum|
You're very welcome. By the way, in First Presbyterian Church in Elizabeth, I took photos of Rebekah Pierson's tombstone but they were overexposed so I'll do them again. The Stockton stone is missing and was noted as "broken" in 1892. I haven't done Prudence Winans yet, if the stone is there. Hurricane Sandy knocked down several large trees in both First Presbyterian in Elizabeth and Presbyterian Church in Westfield and several stones were destroyed.
