I don't remember now if you responded to my request, I don't remember what it was. In any event, I probably found his obit, but I am not related to him, no need to transfer.

Infant Bunting
Hi Phil,

I don't think you need to get a photo. I just sent you a correction on it, the surname was showing up in the middle name field. If the surname actually was Bunting (which I am guessing was correct) just accept the edit I just sent you on the memorial and that will fix it.

RE: Harry West
Phil, I will be getting more photos when we have another warm spell and I can locate the stones. Looking forward to adding more of your requests.

Worden Babcock
Hello Phil

I am searching for the parents of an ancestor (Diana Babcock) born April 16, 1802, in Onondaga County. At first look, given their birthdates, it appears to me her parents could have been Worden and Elizabeth Babcock. I am writing to ask if you are aware of any other Babcock families in that area at the turn of the 19th century?

Infant Bunting memorial
Hi Phil,

Was just looking at your memorials and there is something squirrely about the name on the Infant Bunting memorial, it doesn't look like there is a name in the surname field. Can you check that?

I would definitely add it to his bio section. The normal privacy concerns that might be an issue I believe can be disregarded because of the amount of time that has transpired since his passing.

RE: James W West
Phil, since mine was first, yours is the one that should be deleted as a duplicate. I have entered all of the information that was on your memorial.

If you would like me to transfer the management of this entry to you, I will be glad to do so.

RE: Additional photo
Hi Phil:

I'm sorry but there is no record at Odd Fellows or at the Masonic (the Cemeteries abut) of Alexander Mitchell's being buried there. I went into the office yesterday when I was there to take some photos and they could not find him in their electronic records. Is it possible that he may be buried with another first name and perhaps A. for an initial. Let me know if you find anything.
