|jwh||Horatio Nelson decendant|
A message from you last year asked if there were any living male Rhees relatives who might want to be Y-Dna tested for comparison with Horatio Nelson. I am acquainted with several of them. How do we receive more information about this?

Hi! Yes, Adelma, Gardiner and their daughter Mattie are located in the same (about three lots away) Adelma's memorial #152246390. Buried in the lot next to the Davies' are Maud and James Woodward. Maud's memorial # is 160136039. Hope this helps!

I noticed your request for a photo of Amos Dolliver's gravesite at Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery. Are you a descendant of Amos? I'm also a descendant of a mariner who resided at Sailors' Snug Harbor and is interred in the SSH Cemetery. If you are interested in information about the SSH Cemetery and where to find Amos' SSH Records, I can help you. You can contact me at the email address listed on my member name profile.

You are very welcome
|BjJ||Mrs. A. Phillips photo request|
Hi. Regarding this request, there is a slight problem. Mrs. A. Phillips is actually Mrs. Amanda Sawyer Phillips, #20819076. She has a tombstone photo already. A couple of problems cropped up when I saw your request and it is that 1)she is already listed with a photo but birth year on memorial listing is wrong; and 2)the memorial for Mrs. A. Phillips is a duplicate. I know this because of plot location and obituary as well as age of death, etc. I have contacted the member who has Amanda Phillips' memorial to change the birth year and I will delete the duplicate (mine) which was originally added from the cemetery records. Would you please delete your photo request for her?
I also have asked the other member who has William Phillips' listing if she has a photo for you that she can post. She generally did not add memorials unless she actually saw the stone, so I hope that this is the case. Thanks.

you very welcome, like to give back some too as I have learned so much from this site.
The best thing is I got 4 requests done with 1 photo
|BjJ||Jefferson Phillips photo request|
Regarding your request for a photo for Mr. Phillips, I wanted to let you know that he is in an unmarked grave. The area of Block 4 where he was buried was set aside for black people, and in fact, his entry in the cemetery records was marked "colored" which confirms this. I looked for an obituary in the archived newspaper files with no results. This is a very difficult (almost impossible) area to find a grave, marked or unmarked, as there are so many unmarked graves that there is no benchmark for finding it, and no plot markers. I have photographed and posted previously all markers that exist in that area. You may wish to remove the photo request as it is unfillable. I wish I knew more to help you but unfortunately, that is the best that anyone can do. Thanks.

|BjJ||Infant Twin Phillips - Photo Request|
I wanted to let you know that I added an overall plot photo for these twin infants of L. M. Phillips who died in 1867. The Block where they are buried has literally hundreds of unmarked single graves and perhaps only a dozen or so stones that remain. Infants in this cemetery who died in the mid-to-late 1800s and early 1900s seldom had stones placed for them. Unfortunately, the only information to be found for them is what appears on their memorials, taken directly from the cemetery records. I did change their names to Twin One and Twin Two since they were obviously twins and born on the same day and had only one entry as "Children of L. M. Phillips". I know this is not the result you would have wished for, but at least you know where they are buried.
