|Bio and Links|
|My Find A Grave listing are family members and extended family members. I'm always searching for my ancestors, especially the surnames of Stewart, Smith, McNamer, Reynolds, Wilcox, Hubbard, Spencer, Brainerd, Hungerford, O'Kane, Ellis and numerous families who married into my family.|
I'm also exploring my Dad's family that include Skaggs,White, Storms, Keller, Lemmick.
My family started in New England and moved west to New York, Ohio, Illinois and beyond. If any of my listings look familiar, please contact me. It's always exciting to find new family members.

Tom Dunne kindly responded to my photo request and after some confusion, photographed the overall Fisk lot (Section 92, Lot 170) and confirmed it has no gravestones. I uploaded the photo he sent me to all interred in this lot, both to have the information and to prevent future requests for the photo of a stone which does not exist.

I do not have a Stanley White memorial among the ones that I have added.
|DJ Paul||A strong THANK YOU!|
Dear Cousin Nanette,
Somewhere I feel that the Gallant Captain James Smith is smiling. Thank you so much for your rapid edit.

|DJ Paul||Captain James Smith|
Would you please do me the great favor of editing the Find A Grave profile of James Smith by adding "Captain" (or the abbreviation) as a prefix to our Grandfather James Smith. It seems rather clear from several official reports that our ancestor used his military title throughout his life, I suspect first as a point of justified personal pride --- and secondly, to help in personal identification since James Smith is a rather common name.
Thank you so much.

|pkarchs||Phebe Hendry (1775-1798) and Harpersfield Rural Cemetery|
Thanks for correcting this memorial. . . . I'm in the process of better documenting Hapersfield Rural Cemetery and so visited recently - hence the note from G. Danford below. I'm the transcriber she referenced. Her musings about Phebe's husband are not "figured out" and I subsequntly asked the memorial sponsor of her husband's memorial (the correct James Miller Hendry in Ohio) to link them. From notes you have left G. Danford and others, I see we share direct ancestors here - James Smith and others.
If you have never been, the cemetery is exactly located as shown on its F-A-G map and is not as hard to find as rumored. My great aunt Tessie Wilcox Jones (34619844) bequethed its "perpetual care" via two vast NYC bank accounts in 1967 (separate banks!), thus its nest egg is greater than most American individual's retirement account today. Selflessly without indicating her own name, the bronze plaque and new gate (1970) honor ancestors she and I share. She did not know at the time that we have even more ancestors there. All to say that the cemetery is (and will be) in magnificent condition largely thanks to her, I'm happy to report, as I had never been until Saturday, May 04, 2013. From her files, I have a complete interment list and complete enumerated surname plot map (copied from the original in 1955), thus better records than are currently online in the Delaware Co. archive. All in process to be published first via articles, then books prior to posting. In the meantime, I tried to "correct" F-A-G errors and Phebe's was the biggest.
Many thanks for making the rest of the corrections/additions I sent you - based on decades of research regarding those interred in Harpersfield.
Philip in NYC

|G. Danford||RE: James Hendry|
I think I finally have the Phebe Gibbs Hendry mystery solved. I received the transcription of her headstone and it has her born in 1775 and death in 1798. Therefore, she could not be married to the James Hendry to which she is linked. Perhaps she was married to James Hendry (son of John Hendry) who was born in 1772 which would be more reasonable. I am trying to find other records to substantiate this. I am related to the Hendrys.
Thanks for tickling the brain cells. I remember now.
Please direct your thank you to Lorna Puleo at email@example.com. She went out to the cemetery and took the photo. My only role was to take them from Lorna and post them. I feel really bad that I get the credit, so if you open the photo, the caption credits Lorna as photographer.
I cannot imagine why Lorna can send me (in Florida!) the photos, yet she cannot upload them to Find A Grave herself, but this is how she is getting things to Find A Grave for the moment. She is a very sweet self-effacing soul who says she doesn't care who gets the "credit" as long as people are connected with their relatives.
But I ask you, please, to tell Lorna how much you appreciate her trip to the cemetery.

You are most welcome. Others have done the same for me. I'm glad to pass on the favor.
Could you send me a link to your Uncle Fred's memorial? I'd like to refresh my memory. Thanks.
