Bio Photo I have been actively involved with researching my Family Tree since 1993. The key family members are the Turner's from Amenia, NY; Blot's from Bronx, NY; Berry's from Watervliet, NY and the Marshall's from Stillwater, NY and all of their decendents through the US.

I am retired and live in Albany, NY and may be able to assist someone in research at the NYS Library's Genealogy Section.

RE: Myers Genealogy

Thank you for the inquiry. I am not related to him but he is a GG Grandfather of member 46486209. We worked together to acquire a stone from the VA and I placed it in Shintown Methodist Cemetery. His grave was unmarked and a reliable source told me that he was buried in Shintown and not Kepler. You will find a memorial for him in each cemetery.

Hopefully the other member has some family information. He has a lot of military service documents and was instrumental in getting the stone from the VA.

Good luck.--Storres

This is not Billion graves

I would like photos taken by volunteers on findagrave, not billion graves.

Thank you for your help.

Found another of your kin
First of all, I got your messages about the Sackett family, but haven't had time to check my gedcom to see if I need anyone. I'll get back to you if I do

Next, I quite accidently found another one of your relatives, Mary Sackett, daughter of Charles B & Sarah Turner Sackett. I was on the Poughkeepsie Journal site looking for a Murphy, and saw the name Mary Sackett, and actually paid attention. She was married twice, first to John Murtaugh, then to James Murphy. She's buried in St Joseph's cemetery, Millbrook. So are both of her husbands. Don't know which one she's buried with, or if she's buried as a Murphy or a Murtaugh, or a Murtaugh-Murphy, which is how her name is stated in her obituary. Her Murtaugh husband was a five term mayor of Millbrook, so I'm betting she' buried with him. I'm trying to do all of St Joseph's this summer, so I'm sure I'll find her sooner or later. In the meantime, I'm going to transfer her and her Murphy husand to you. Will transfer her Murtaugh husband to you after I find his mother and link them up.

RE: Turners buried Immaculate Conception, Amenia
I saw the stone you bought when I was up there. It's a tremendously nice gesture. Everyone should leave a mark.

Meanwhile, just wanted you to know I posted the pictures, as poor as they are

Turners buried Immaculate Conception, Amenia
Hi Bob.Don't know if you remember me, but I was the one who originally entered some of your relatives buried in Immaculate Conception, Amenia. You told me you'd been up there and hadn't found some of the stones. Was up the other day and found a couple of them, George & Ellen Turner. George's stone is on the ground. It's intact, but has fallen off the pedestal. It's repairable if you have the urge. Ellen is right next to him, up right, but totally encased in brush (small tree or large bush). If you go up there, the stones are at the far rear (southwestern part) of the cemetery, along Lake Amenia Road, not too far from the Charles Sackett stone. It's next to or near the Thomas & Ellen Timmons Gormley stone, which were the pictures I took just before their stones. I was doing 2 rows at a time, so it's probably south of the Gormley stone, closer to the fence, but I'm not sure.)If you want to see Ellen's stone, wait till winter or bring branch trimmers. I posted the pictures I took on their pages. If you get better shots (especially of Ellen's), and you want me to delete mine, let me know and I'll do so. All I could get of Ellen's was the left edge of the stone, just basically shows her firt name and George's name. You might want to enter the inscription on the stone, which reads: "Ellen Maher, wife of George W Turner also of Jeremiah Carroll, died July 18, 1905". Couldn't see any age on the stone, but it might be there, lower down in the bush. Also found her second husband's entry and linked them up.
