Sorry Jeanette does not appear to have a grave marker. I did transcibe the others in Lilac lot 171, if you suspect she may have been buried near other relatives (no Currys).
|WNY Shepard||RE: Eliza Norton Proctor Shepard|
According to my records after Thomas Proctor died in 1829. Eliza married widower Andrew Shepard in 1835; he was the oldest brother of my husband's GG Grand-father. Eliza and Andrew had six children together in addition to his children from his first marriage, and Eliza's children from her first marriage: Elizabeth, Mary,Richard and Watie. I also have that Eliza's daughter Elizabeth, your ancestor, married Martin M Mack - is that right? If so how'd you get the name Shepard?
Just letting you know that I've connected Walter to his mother, Mary.
Thanks for agreeing with me about the "unknown" status of some people who we know had lived and we know have died but we just don't know exactly when or where sometimes.
There are people who will refuse to connect such people. But I feel that if Find A Grave has that option, then we should be able to do that.

I've connected Walter to his father, and made a note about his mother.
Thank you for letting me know about them.

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this with me! Your story is EXACTLY why I do this! I found those records has been scanned online, and although I was going through them mainly for the cemetery I do most of my work on, I couldn't just pass by the other people. So many were in the are for winter or to come here for health reasons, I know their deaths may be a bit of a mystery. So often there is that little nugget of extra info...
I have a couple of brick walls myself, and I hope I will be as lucky one day!
I'm so glad I was able to help!!

Glad to transfer so that you are able to maintain your direct relative.

Hi! I transferred Harriet to you as I have no known connection to her, but it is customary to state your relationship to the person when requesting a transfer. That way direct descendants can be given preference, although it is really not mandatory to transfer except within grandchild, child, (self) parent, grandparent relationships. If you are just adding records and are not particularly active on the site, it is sometimes just better to pass along information to the person who manages the page. Links don't require transfers at all. No problem, really.

I have made the changes that you suggested for the Walter Frank memorial. I will transfer this memorial to you if you wish. I have no ties to this family.

I also posted a photo of his wife Lucena in case you are interested.
