Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, now live in Arlington, Virginia. I am looking for graves of my ancestors. On my mother's side, they were Scots-Irish, who arrived in Kentucky from Virginia in the mid-1700s, and English, going back to the first arrivals at Jamestowne. On my father's side, they were Russian Jews who arrived in the 1880s to the Lower East side. They are concentrated in New York and New Jersey, especially in the many cemeteries of Queens.

Alanson Cogswell
The cemetery records originally listed him at Napoleon but the records were destroyed by fire. The DAR saw his listing and added him to the WPA list from which we used. I have added the notation on the memorial and linked to the other burial site. One is actual and the other is a cenotaph. Not uncommon.

RE: Eric Kelly Gokay
Eric's obit states that he was buried in Peterson Cemetery. His mother's side are Minnick. I don't think they are related to the Peterson or Pelham family's that are in that cemetery. My grandmother was a Pelham.

RE: William Edward Curd
Hi Rod,
Your note got me thinking so I went back to the photos I had taken and lo and behold there was Willie! I guess I was concentrating on matching the pics to the memorials that I didn't realize there was an extra one. I posted it on his memorial so now your family is complete, at least in the Schyler, VA area! I also received a nice note from your cousin Dan and if you don't mind I would like to compile the emails and give them to Willie Mae since she was curious about the request for the photos. If I am lucky enough to talk to her again I'll ask her about her father.
Have a nice weekend!

RE: Curd family cemetery
Rod, I believe the lady that Vera met (where the cemetery is) is Willie Mae Curd who married James Daniel Pillow. Their son is James Edward Pillow. Both James Pillows are buried there. My husband's family is connected to the Pillow family via the Woody clan.

Curd family cemetery
Rod, I transferred the Curd and Wilbourne memorials to you. I'm not related to them, only to a couple people in that cemetery. I also did the corrections you put in via the SAC.
