I'm an avid genealogist who enjoys doing my little bit to preserve the memory of those who came before us. My research interests are throughout New England and Eastern Canada.|
I'm currently trying to photograph and add memorials for Restvale Cemetery in Seneca Falls as well as for various other cemeteries in Skaneateles, NY and Charlton, NY.
If I've created a memorial for your ancestor and you wish to have it transferred to yourself, I will happily make the transfer unless it happens to be a close ancestor of my own.
I grant permission to any Find-A-Grave member or visitor to use any grave/marker pictures I have published on Find-A-Grave in the context of any history or genealogy you may publish that is primarily about your own family lineage. This includes publishing in hardcopy and/or electronic forms. However, this permission does not extend to publishing or redistributing these images for primarily commercial purposes, or for the purpose of making it available in any other commercial or non-commercial database, information system or distribution media (other than as part of a publication primarily about your family lineage). If you desire such other permission, kindly submit a written request. All reasonable requests will be given fair consideration.

|Nancy McDonnell||RE: Sidney Burritt at Restvale|
Thanks so much Randy. An hour away is a long drive to check one stone, especially when a family member needs extra care. I live in SW Ohio so a trip to Seneca Falls is, unfortunately, not in my immediate plans. My Mom has a source for the more reasonable (?) or believable year of 1819 so we aren't in a great hurry for it. As I think I said in the original message, if you could check it the next time you are there, I'd appreciate it and it will keep the website accurate. Thanks for the web addresses for the Seneca Falls Historical Society and Fulton History. I will check both for Sidney as well as other Seneca Falls area relatives. Some of the Burritts lived in Waterloo, Ovid and Ithaca so I may find something interesting. And thanks for managing Restvale Cemetery on Findagrave.com. I have a friend who manages a couple of cemeteries near us so I know it is a lot of work. - Nancy McDonnell
|Nancy McDonnell||Sidney Burritt|
I have a question about the stone on the grave of Sidney Burritt, buried in Restvale Cemetery. Sidney is a son of my 3rd great grandparents. My Mom's and my research indicates that Sidney was born on 17 Sep 1819. On the webpage, his date of birth is given as 17 Sep 1810. The picture of his gravestone doesn't clarify the issue. I can see reading the year as either 1810 or 1819. In fact, from the same picture, the year he died could be 1870 or 1878 however, we agree with your reading of 1870. Sidney's mother, Polly Burritt, nee Bradley was born 5 Mar 1798 so if Sidney was born in 1810, she would have been only 13 at the time of his birth! This too supports the year of 1819. Next time you are at Restvale Cemetery, would you recheck this one? You've put a lot of work into posting these graves and for family members like us who live in Ohio it's a blessing! Thank you so much.

Thanks for the photo.
|A Family Who Loves Genealogy||Cheery Hello Sent your way!|
It is baffling to say the least that there appears to be some glitches in the Find A Grave system from time to time.
There have been some hackers that actually brought down the system for a few days in July! It has never made sense to me why these folks could not spend their talent for the good instead of causing harm. It is disconcerting.
I was thrilled to hear that you are documenting the cemetery! Walking out in the elements, being bitten my bugs, and crawling over crumbling headstones is a challenge to say the least. I, for one, am thrilled and deeply appreciative of you doing that!
There was a wonderful gentleman who has been documenting some old headstones and doing a terrific job of it. He stated that he brings along a devise that wets the stones and captures the lettering because of it being wet.
Here is his profile. He is just starting to capture the wonderful stones. Go take a look at his profile page and click on the stones he has captured. Amazing! Go here and click on photos for him. Hope this finds you doing well!
|A Family Who Loves Genealogy||Well there is something unusual!|
My goodness gracious. What in the world happened there... I had checked that cemetery before I started adding memorials. Find A Grave did not show them there. Thanks EVER so much for catching that!
I do not know what happened the day I entered those memorials because I had checked and Find A Grave did not show the memorials there. Incredulous that that happened. Baffling to say the least!
After doing my initial check, I felt confident about the input. Find A Grave has a system in place that also checks template input to prevent duplicates. I always thought template input would have a secondary assurance to catch a duplicate! I had noticed a flickering. Thanks for pointing that out.

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph and post the photo of George Porter Boardman. He was my wife's great great uncle.

|Bob Collins||RE: Elizabeth Hube|
Excellent. I have added Gesine's maiden name to her page. Now the connection makes perfect sense.
|Bob Collins||Elizabeth Hube|
You're welcome, of course. After all these years, I know most of the 500 acres of GReen-Wood pretty well, so the only problem with the stone was that the name HUBE appears nowhere on the lot. Do you know how the Hubes were related to the Brunings?
|108th Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry||oops|
My mistake! I meant thank you for getting a photo of the gravestone of William Woodhull (not Jacob Grauer)! (I guess I better get some sleep!)
|108th Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry||Jacob Grauer gravestone|
Thank you for posting the stone for Jacob Grauer. I don't have a car now, so it is extremely hard to get to most cemeteries...and then travel around if they are large cemeteries like Mt. Hope, Holy Sepulchre and Riverside!
