If you see an ancestor to you that I have uploaded, please request a transfer. I am happy to do so, even if it falls outside of the Findagrave guidelines. I have tried to help others find their ancestors as others have helped me.

Always eager to meet a new cousin along the way too. If you share an ancestor with me, I'd love to hear from you and trade info / pictures / whatever I have. Will take what ever you have.

You are entitled to use any photo I have posted. I took them so others could see the gravestones of their ancestors and families. If you happen to get rich publishing some of my photos of gravestones please share a percentage with me. You are entitled to use any photo of a person I have posted, We have a wonderful family treasure of photos. I am always curious if others have ones I don't have of my family members.

If you have a picture of a family member of mine please be sure to contact me, I'd love to see it.

If you are doing research on your ancestors in Onondaga County I suggest the following links.

Thank you so very much for the transfer of my relative. I appreciate it. I really miss my home area of Onondaga and Cayuga County so much as my roots go so deep from there. Wishing you all a wonderful summer from Florida.

RE: Dorotha Rose Pickard Vanselow
Thank you. I sincerely appreciate your help. You have been very receptive to my requests.
As you know, Henry Mettler married Jessie Belle Auyer. Henry was my great grandmother's brother. Henry died before my time.
I had the pleasure of knowing both my great grandmother, Laney Mettler Tryon, and my great aunt, Ruth Mettler Johnson. In their final years they both lived with my grandfather, George Tryon in Auburn, NY.

RE: The book
According to the U.S. Sons of the American Revolution Application the following:

Benjamin Jones

Birth Date:

SAR Membership:


Application Date:
9 Sep 1926

Jemima Galvin (Delavan)

Rhoda Jones

Not trying to cause a problem, just trying to get the all "unraveled" and right. I don't know if there is another Ben Jones that this memorial is for??? Do you have American Rev. application for this person? I know information can be right/wrong. I have set up some memorials, too, but not to the extent that you have. Can you let me know?

RE: The book
Did you notice the information that you sent to me;
Free ebook online

Book page 271 (digital scan page 282)

May 17, 1718.
Aged 87 Y'rs.

his Wife
Died May 25
Aged 77 Y'rs

That his wife died almost a hundred years after his death. Seems strange to me. That says to me that she was born about twenty years after he died. I feel records are mixed up.

Benjamin Jones
As all, doing research on a family member. My individual is Benjamin Jones born 1717 died May 17, 1814. The "dickens" of a time that I am finding are two entries in Find A Grave. Your memorial #88279930 and the other is #42503514. Same wife, Mehitable Terrill Jones, different locations. Then I have my study off of the
U.S., Sons of the American Revolution Membership Applications, 1889-1970, Benjamin Jones, born 1724 does not show a death date and married to Jemima Delavan born 1725 and no death location for either.
Could give me any help on this.

Thank you. Your efforts helped me locate an ancestor that died all too young leaving a husband and two children behind. I have been looking for her for a number of years. Tragically she died of a disease that is preventable today, lockjaw (the source is the very words from my grandmother and Carrie May DEXTER FOX's niece. It is also a reminder of the progress medical science has made. I am grateful.

RE: # 66193113 Kate Cox Guilfoyle
Good morning! I had a great conversation with Dan this morning. From what I've been able to gather so far, Kate's parents, Thomas and Betsey (Staley) Cox, should be buried in Jordan or Elbridge somewhere. Thomas is on the 1840 census but not on the 1850 census. Betsey is listed on the 1860 census but nowhere to be found in the 1870 census. I do not expect to find a headstone but would should appreciate it if you could somehow find death notices for them. I have not been successful with for these two and was hoping you might have another local resource. As I mentioned to Dan, I have no understanding of any religious affiliation for either of them. A wild guess would be that they were not Catholic as their daughter is not buried at St. Patrick's.
