Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching the following ancestors -
Charles and Caroline Gray Amsterdam NY
John and Freda Rossman Amsterdam NY
Peter and Mary Ann Mahon Orange NJ
Benjamin Amos Wood County WV
John Moss Bailey Wood County WV

Please take into consideration that I am not related to many of the people I have added.
Many of the records came from a MS Works database I located at the Amsterdam NY Free Library. I added them to Find A Grave so family members can find were their ancestors are buried! If you come across one of your loved ones which I have added, please let me know I'd be glad to transfer them to you.

Also if you are asking me to delete an interment because it is a duplicate, my record will be deleted if my record was the last one entered.

These records are for my great-grandmother and her children. As I have photos of their gravestones and of them and have bio data, I am hoping you would be willing to transfer these memorials to me so that I can add this info. Would you be willing to do that? The six memorials are listed below. Thank you in advance.

Hello James, I submitted two edit requests. One to add his complete places of birth and death. Part of that edit also was to change his year of death from 1966 to 1965. The second edit links him to his parents. The source is his newspaper obituary and his father's. His obit appeared in the Johnstown NY Leader Herald, Friday, August 20, 1965. Thanks for having created his memorial. Paul Turner

134th NY Infantry - Civil War
Hello James, I was wondering if the library database included military service? I do research on the burial places of members of the 134th NY Volunteer Infantry, having had an ancestor who served in the unit. I've created a Virtual Cemetery for the 134th, 550 names and counting. Paul Turner

Willis Dale Coates
Hello James,
Just thought I would tell you that Willis Dale Coates did not die 11 Aug 1956, but rather that is when he was born, in Salisbury, Rowan Co., North Carolina. In his mom's obituary from 2012 it states that he was living in Seattle, Washington with his wife Angela "Angie". His Find A Grave number is # 78505339.

I am a part of a small group researching local pioneer cemeteries for unmarked graves of USA veterans. During this endeavor we need to find a LIVING next of kin. I am reaching out to all Find A Grave people that have established or maintain a memorial for anyone within the HARRY NEWMAN BOWLER line. I would very much appreciate seeing if you have information that will help us secure a military marker for Harry. There is no cost involved to you. Please e mail me at
