|Carolyn Tusing Surine||RE: Surine..... your a little patronizing|
Not at all. I know what I know, and you are simply incorrect. Please be more careful in your posts by substantiating information through original research using multiple sources. To be sure, there is much erroneous information online. Thank you.
|Carolyn Tusing Surine||Surine Burials Not Kent Cliffs|
The Surines are all family members of my husband's family. His direct ancestor, Peter, moved to MI, where he died. Sarah, John, and Phebe were his siblings. To say they are at Kent Cliffs is incorrect. They are buried at 2nd Kent Baptist Churchyard at Ludingtonville. Further, John Surine, son of Charles and Polly Smith Surine, was unmarried. The Elizabeth Ross you attribute to him as his wife married John M. Sirrine, a son of James "Canopus" Sirrine. John and Betsey lived in PA, MI, then Betsey came back to NYS after John's death.
|CCorfey||Re: Warren Tidbit|
Thank you so much for your help! I didn't think of that. I will get working on it. It was a great idea! You are right about being driven by rules. I wouldn't care if they would just add the info but now I can get the info up so it won't matter. Thanks again!

|CCorfey||Re: Warren Tidbit|
You state below that I can still connect people and add bio info to their page if I don't own the memorial, Can you tell me how to do that? I see no way to do that if I don't own the memorial (I don't need to own it, I'd just like more info added to it). The links for bio and family links only appear if you manage the memorial, but maybe I'm missing something. I don't mean to be contentious, I'm just trying to learn how to do this. Adding his birth and death date might help to distinguish him from other Elisha Warrens in NY. thanks for your help.
there are directions somewhere on how to connect people in the bio section
when for whatever reason your not able to "own" the Memorial..... you can still tell the story if you inclined.....it is tedius
as in all stuff in life everyone seems to have their own take on the point of Find-a-Grave

|Susan||RE: I always like a good windmill story|
Yup, that's him. He started out selling windmills (after marrying a very rich woman 10 years his senior), then went to acetylene gas, then blew up a few stoves experimenting with stuff. Then he started a bunch of water companies (including Amenia, which stayed in the family a long time and Pine Plains). He was a tinkerer and experimenter, and it's a damn good thing he married money. He also traveled across the US in a model T in 1917. His wife stayed home (wise woman). I wish I'd known him. He apparently came by his ways naturally, since his father Robert used to experiment blowing things up with dynamite.
I'm a much less adventurous person

|Susan||RE: gene pools|
I referred to that book in this message by a mild swear word. Ancestry is now "reviewing" it. So I've deleted the mild expletive and am trying again.
I've got a couple relatives in dutchess commemorative.
Miles K. Lewis was my great grandfather
Edward B Thompson was my great greatuncle. I can't remember if my great grandfather John Thompson is in the book or not, but Edward's write-up mentions my great great grandfather Robert and his father James, and grandfather Elias. They're all buried in Amenia or Smithfield, except James, who's in Bangall, and Elias, who I've never found. I refer to him as Elusive Elias.
I'm also related to the Sacketts, Allings and Hammonds via the Bertines. Robert Bertine doesn't have a write-up (he died before the book came out), but I think he's mentioned as a contributor (amazing since he died in 1876. Who says you can't take it with you).
That [expletive deleted] book was what got me started on genealogy. I worked in a library and was cataloguing the historical cabinet, opened that book and there they were. So I thought I'd spend a little time nosing around to see what I could find. No one told me genealogy was like crack cocaine.

|Susan||RE: GEORGE A. TROWBRIDGE.|
I actually have the original of my great grandfather's write-up in this book. He could have told them he was the king of England. and as long as he paid, they would have printed it. And yet, they mis-printed the date of his marriage, making his first daughter illegitimate. That must have horrified my victorian great grandmother no end

|Susan||RE: tidbit....I thought you might like a old newspaper story|
How on earth could anyone have unexplored old trunks in their attic?
Thanks for passing this on. I wonder what happened to the flag

Thanks. A lot of the Brills were entered by Terry Akin, now deceased. His widow has been trying to keep up with Terry's findagrave stuff, and if you're related to the Brills, she may be willing to transfer the Brills that Terry entered over to you. I would do the same
