Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved the old cemeteries. My interest in genealogy has brought me back into the cemeteries to find my roots. I love helping others to discover their past and to honor and remember those that have come before us.

Currently I am working on photographing and transcribing the cemeteries of Queens Co. and Long Island, New York. I love learning about the interesting families that lived here and I am happy to help others when I can.

Nearly all of the information for the memorials I have entered is taken from photographs which I have personally taken. In the interest of getting as many people entered as possible, I have gotten behind in adding all my photos. If you see a memorial which I have entered and you would like a photo, please request the photo by clicking the "request a photo" tab on the memorial and then drop me a line to let me know that you have put in the request. I am not automatically notified when a photo request has been made on a memorial I have created.

I welcome all corrections. I try to be as accurate as I possibly can.

Harwood in All Saints
Hi Dyane,
I also just sent photo requests for John & Charlotte Harwood in All Saints cemetery. If there are other Harwoods buried there, I would appreciate that info, also.

Thank you SO very much for the photos of the Childs stones in All Saints Cemetery. I appreciate all your time and energy. They are my husband's family.

Thank you so much, Dyane! Your photo proved this is the old aviator I was looking for! He was one of the original members to join our aviation fraternity in 1921.

A member of the cemetery staff is going to the cemetery in hopes of reading date of death on the head stone. I hope he can do it!

Thanks again,

Hi, I noticed that you have multiple memorials for the same people in this cemetery that you may want to delete.

I have entered a request for a photo of her burial site. Thanks for making a memorial for her, so I was able to find it so readily. Kind regards.

Thank you so much for taking photos of the gravestone for Clara Firester. It provided me with a birth date to add to her findagrave memorial, and I also now know her namesake was her great-grandmother Chaya Itzkowitz based on the Hebrew name on her marker.

field rock in Odell lot Center Conway n.H.
Hello Dyane

I would like to thank you for the photos you took of the graves of Seaveys, Odells and some Eastmans in the Center Conway N.H. cemetery.

They are of my family. I think the small rock you mentioned could be for the first child of Richard Odell and his wife Molly Eastman. This child was named Richard Eastman Odell born abt 1797 ( I also have a date 27 Dec listed) born in Conway N.H. and died 20 June 1804 Conway, I show him in my records to be buried in the Center Conway cemetery with the word Rock and a question mark beside it. The digit 7 could be his age Another member inserted information on Joseph Odell 1736-1802 and Sarah (Ingalls) Odell 1745-1786 showing they were buried in the Center Conway cemetery. From early information they were buried in the original burial place ," The Old Meeting House cemetery" When the highway went into existence the burials were moved to the North Conway and Center Conway cemeteries but individual locations are unknown.
Thank you again, I am at an advanced age so it is nice to see things done
Sincerely, Betty Perkins
