|edward rusk sr||RE: Picture of Gravemarker|
Dave, your welcome. My wife and I are always glad to help. Ed
|Bob Matthews||RE: Thanks for Pic|
In addition to "William & Bessie" there were two other adjacent markers: (1) Orville & Thelma Brown and (2) S. Eula Brown. I found their memorials and posted them. I also have the high resoultion copies I can e-mail if you'd like.
|Andrea Dille||Cora Matilda Deardorff Parker|
Hello Dave... I updated Cora's memorial with the information you gave me. Thank you very much!
|Keith Hyde||William Sloan - Siloam cemetery|
I am a distant relative of William Sloan who is buried in the Siloam cemetery in Peterboro NY. I have a family tree than shows the lineage from Sloan, to Parkhurst, to Wheeler, to Hyde (me). I will send it to you in another email. I am 52 years old and grew up in Hamilton NY, not too far from Peterboro. I live in the Rochester NY area now. I found a website that lists the veterans from the Battles of Saratoga in the fall of 1777. I have included the link below, just click on the Sh link and scroll down to find William Sloan. I'm wondering if this is the same William Sloan Revolutionary War vet who is buried in Peterboro? I checked with Frank Goodway who manages the website for Heritage Hunters and he did not know. All their records come from the State of Massachusetts who has a 17 volume collection on Revolutionary war soldiers. I would be interested in whatever information you may have on this William Sloan and any other family records.
You're very welcome; it was my pleasure. It's a very small cemetery so the grave was very easy to find.

|Diana McGee Riehm||McGees buried at Hoover Bulla|
Thrilled to see pix of my relatives on this site. I am curious as to how you found out the names for some of the headstones, because their names are not on the headstones, just the last name and dates of birth and death...?
I actually visited the Hoover Bulla Cemetery with my daughter last summer but the photos we took were not helpful because the light was bad at that time of day.
I would appreciate knowing the above information. The McGees are distant relatives of the Hoover family.
|Keith Hyde||William Sloan|
I have a family tree that includes William Sloan Sr. and Jr. If you are interested let me know and I will send it to you. William Jr. had a daughter, Lucinda, who married George Parkhurst which is where my maternal family came from. These people and several other Sloan and Parkhurst's are all buried at Siloam cemetery outside of Peterboro NY. I stopped by to visit the cemetery this past Sunday and found three Sloan grave markers. It was difficult to read the inscriptions but there were several family members buried in the same area including William Sr. and Jr. I am going to return in the spring when it's not so overgrown. It's too bad the couple who live in the church now don't take better care of the grounds. Many of the markets are falling over. My wife and I are going to fix up the Sloan and Parkhurst graves in the spring and take some photos.
Let me know if you want a copy of the tree.
|Glen Marquis||RE: Edna Bush|
You're welcome, Dave. If you need a higher resolution photo, I can email it to you. I also have headstone photos of Edna's sister, Alta Hoffman, and Edna's mother, Emma A. (Marquis) Outland.
|Freedom Warrior||Deardorff Photo Requests|
Dave, My wife and I will go search for the Deardorf Cemetery tomorrow. It appears to be on Scouter's Mountain in Happy Valley, which is owned by the local BSA council. I roamed those hills for years as a Scout and do not remember any old cemetery. However, a very prominent road in Happy Valley is Deardorf Road, so I am sure there is someone who will know where it is hidden. We are looking forward to the adventure.
While fulfilling another request for someone else in the Clackamas Cemetery tonight, I found and photographed a Deardorff headstone... and that is all that was on the stone. If you are interested, (and I bet it is the same family), let me know and I will send the photo to you.
Scott G Edwards
You're welcome! Glad I could help out. It was a beautiful day. Out of the 47 photo requests for this cemetery, I found 33.
