Jacob Pettibone, Riverview Cem., Baldwinsville, NY
I photographed the Pettibone monument in this cemetery for you. The monument is very worn. On the monument was Jacob, Catherine and Eli, and next to it was a broken stone on the ground for George. All have been uploaded to the memorials.

RE: Amos and Nellie Photos
Hi Susan,
There was also a grave for a Jerusha Pettibone right next to Amos and Nellie's stones. I assumed there was a relationship there so I took a picture of it as well and added the record if you want to take a look.
I have one more photo of the two graves side by side if you also want that. Just let me know and I can send it to you.
That cemetery is in a beautiful city neighborhood surrounded by lovely expensive homes and is literally on a million dollar piece of property. Because it is owned and maintained by the city of Birmingham it is in pristine condition.

Greenwood Cemetary Pettibones
Hi: I was at Greenwood Cemetary in Birmingham MI today to photograph Amos and Nellie Pettibones' headstones ( sorry I didn't get to it sooner). They are located side by side. The headstones are extremely difficult to read--I could only be certain of their names. The city clerk said that Amos died in 1863 not in 1865 and that he was buried with a child. I'm not sure whether that refers to Nellie or to another child. I will call and see if they can tell me anything else since the stones are so difficult to read.

They were also beside Jerusha Pettibone who died November 22, 1866, aged ------. The stone was broken at the bottom and the last line is now hidden behind the base of the stone.

There is another nearby stone that looks like it could be part of the same family group but the name on it is illegible but didn't look like Pettibone. I will check with the clerk to get the name for you.

I'll get photos up as soon as I figure out how-it's my first time.

Luman Pettibone
Hi I am a descendent of Chauncey Pettibone who is Luman Pettibone's brother. I am assuming as your last name is Pettibone that you are a relative somehow. Was hoping we could exchange some information.

Anne (Pettibone) Holcomb
On line cemetery records say:
Holcomb, Anne - wife of John, d. 12 May 1753 age 73.
I have requested a photo of the tombstone to confirm the month of death.

I also looked for the name Pettibone in those records, and I don't believe there were any Pettibone burials in that cemetery, but I ran into some Pettibone marriages, so the word is still out on how many Pettibone people I will find in the area.

Anyway, you brought my attention back to this very important cemetery.

I will let you know as I progress how I am doing.

Pettibone/Holcomb questions
I think I got the dates I have from an on-line list of people in that cemetery. I have requested a photo of Anne Pettibone Holcombe's tombstone, so we can see what it says exactly.
Feel free to request tombstone pictures on any of my entries that you wish.

RE: Pettibone in Ogdensburg Cemetery
There was no other name on the marker for the Pettibones, and I can't imagine how someone who died in the Huron River (even if they found his body) would end up in St. Lawrence county, 200 miles north. I can probably identify JRR without too much digging. As I mentioned in my email to you, the family is well documented up here. I just haven't filled in their full names because their markers weren't shown that way. I was going to do it before I transferred them, but figured you could do it just as easily.

Pettibone in Ogdensburg Cemetery
The Pettibones in Ogdensburg Cemetery aren't the ones you mention in your note. THe "J.R. Pettibone" I had assumed was Janet R. Pettibone, since two of the other stones are her parents, John B. Pettibone (JB Pettibone) and Jennett (Jennie) Chapin Pettibone (JC Pettibone). The RG Pettibone is Roswell Pettibone and D.M.P. is his wife, Delia. Etc. Anyways, I'll transfer them all anyways as you are probably closer, but if you aren't connected to this line, please transfer them back as I have other information on them I could add. I will point out, that relooking at the photo, the J.R. who is buried in the Pettibone plot, actually has the initials JRR (not JRP), so their last name is unknown. That will explain why you will be getting a stone for a "J R R" as well. Maybe you can tie it in.
