I am the daughter of Robert Hogan and Eleanor Ruth Mearns Hogan. I was born in Kingston, NY. I have been seeking information on my family for 50 years. Thanks to the internet I am making progress. I enjoy finding graves for people who are also searching for their families.
Antoinette Twinn Thank you so much for the picture of Antoinette Twinn's Headstone. I now have photographs of all the headstones for all the children of that family. Thank you also for including the larger image. That was very helpful. -Robert Austin-
RE: Charles Day Pat, The memorial for Charles has been updated now and his grave should be in the Orangeport Union-Gaskill Cemetery. I would be very grateful if you could get photos of any other Days there. From what I have read, there is a large dark grey granite monument with the names of John Day and his wife Catherine. The back has names of John Jr, Mary Theresa, and Charles S. On one side is Johnie, son of Charles and Emma. I will be glad to create any memorials needed to post the photos if you give me the names. Thanks again! Rick
RE: Charles Day Pat, I just read some notes in an old family history that indicates Charles S. Day is likely buried in the Orangeport cemetery with his parents John Day (1814-1852) and Catherine Watson Day (1816-1895). His son Johnnie, who died in infancy abt. 1870, is probably in Orangeport also. Charles's wife, Emma Hayner Day (1847-1898) and their daughter Catherine or Katie Day (1872-1898) are supposedly buried on the Hayner (or Haynor?) lot in "Green Cemetery", which I believe is an alternate name for Mountain Ridge. Before you go to any more trouble, let me contact the creator of the memorial for Charles and ask how certain she is about her information. I appreciate all your help and will get back to you soon. Also, if you happen to have any dead ancestors in the vicinity of Raleigh, NC, I will be glad to return the favor and photograph them for you! Rick
RE: Charles Day Hello Pat, Yes, please, I would like photos of both of them and any other Day family graves that you happen to find. I recognize the Charles of 1821-1896 as the brother of my 3rd great-grandfather, John Day. The other, is probably his son, Charles Jr., who died at about age 12, according to my sources. Thanks so much for your help! Rick
RE: Joshua Choat That is no problem. Thanks again for looking. I did not receive the pictures though. Can you please send them to my home email address email@example.com. Sometimes my work email does not accept everything. Thanks again. Tami
Joshua Choat Good Morning, Thank you for looking for this grave marker for me. His last name is actually spelled Choate, he should be near his wife Betsey W, daughter Ann and son David. All of them have photo's of the grave markers and it is possible that he either did not have one or that it is terribly worn or broken. It could also be on the back of the marker for his wife. It is difficult to read the marker photo's so I am guessing that some of the letters have worn off and that is why the name is spelled differently. Thanks again for looking. I will put a note on the find a grave site that the marker is not available.
