Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began gathering info on my various family lines in about 1980, and seriously began reconstructing their details and stories in 2004. Documentation is very important to me, and I give credit where I know the source of info or photos.

My lines are Jenkins, Terry, Barnett, Green, Gregory, West, Mullins, Mullinax, Strange, Taylor. On my wife's side McSwain, Dumond, Green, Padgett from South Carolina and Arkansas.

Any photos I have posted on Find a Grave may be downloaded and used by others for their genealogies, but I ask that you give credit.

"ae" on gravestones
"Ae" on gravestones is not a typo for "age." It is an abbreviation for the Latin word "aetas" (nominative) "aetatis" (gentitive), meaning age, or year of life. On old portraits, particularly European ones from the 16th-18th century, you sometimes see "aetatis suae" followed by a number. This means "in his (or her) ----th year."

RE: Engraving dates on grve of Sylvanus A Strang
Baptist Church Cemetery, Town of Stillwater, Saratoga County, New York.
As transcribed by Cornelius Emerson Durkee, Sep. 10, 1877, and listed under Stillwater in volume 2, Page 475
Strang, Sylvanus A., d. Nov. 20, 1847, ae 43.
Strang, Mary, b. June 8, 1840; d. Feb. 7, 1853.
Strang, Sylvanus H., b. Feb. 28, 1842; d. Feb. 17, 1845.

Actually, Sylvanus A. Strang #40675275 was married to a woman named Mary, and they had two children, Sylvanus H. Strang 1842-1845 and Mary Strang 1840-1853, 26857289. Sylvanus died in 1847 and the children both died young... the three of them are buried together in a short row and I've added photos of the row to the memorials. I'm not quite sure what became of the widow Mary Strang, but I have her on the 1850 census of Stillwater with Denton family members. The child, Mary Strang 26857289 needs to be linked to her father Sylvanus A Strang 40675275.

It's very hard to tell apart the numbers 1 and 4 on the old worn stones, but I'm sure that your memorial 26857256 should be born 1842 and died 1845 and this is the same person as 40675339, which I only added because I couldn't get anyone to correct the earlier memorial. Back in 1877, when Cornelius Durkee copied that same stone, it would have been very readable and Durkee's inscriptions are listed above. If you would please correct your memorial and link him and his sister Mary to their father, I'll delete my memorial and then we can both try to figure out what happened to the widow Mary Strang.
