Vestal Hills Memorial Park
You have a photo request for someone at Vestal Hills Memorial Park cemetery. It is nearly impossible to locate someone there without the section number and plot number. All monuments are of the flat bronze type and many are covered with leaves dirt or grass. If you can provide Section/plot i can give it a try. I know the cemetery pretty well It is HUGE and hilly and just trying to walk around mowing the rows to find someone cannot be done.

John Ransing @ St Anthony`s
Hello David,
Based on your earlier research. John Ransing`s parents were:
Mother - Mary Ransing #135512535
Father - George H Ransing (not found)
The brother who survived John was Captain Henry Ransing #135512196. This info comes from Henry & mother Mary`s memorial stone, combined with the Bio. that you posted.
Please add to biography, and link if you agree.
Thank You & Best Wishes,

Josephine Gelatt
I'm sorry but I have to decline your edit to add Cundey as Josephine Gelatt's maiden name. If you can give me a source for the information, I would be happy to reconsider.

I did find Josephine Gelatt living in the household of William and Nellie Cundey on the 1920 census but her relationship to the head of the household was that of Mother-in-law. That would indicate that she was Nellie's mother and that Nellie's maiden name was Gelatt, not that Josephine's maiden name was Cundey.

As I said, if you have some other source for her maiden name, I will certainly reconsider the decline.

I just added his parents info. I have searched several times for his father's stone and have never found it.
