|I'm an amateur genealogist who recently discovered Wiki Tree! My roots are mostly in Hunterdon County, New Jersey; Bucks County, PA; and Somerset County, NJ. I have lots of relatives buried in the various cemeteries in those locations! Most of my ancestors were of Dutch, German and/or English descent. To see if we might be related and to view part of my family tree (pre-1930 or so), go to http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/Smith-Family-Tree-36481|

|Anonymous||Aunt Betty Coltrain|
You can't imagine my excitement when I stumbled across the information and photo of Louisa Elizabeth Coltrain Stout. My g-grandmother was Margaret Christian Coltrain Harrison (Maggie), a sister of Betty. All of the information you mentioned matches perfectly the information I remember my grandfather sharing with me sometime before he died. I would love to know any other information you could possibly share. Would it be possible for me to get a copy of her photo? (at my expense of course). This is one of only a few photos I have seen of my Coltrain relatives.
|Joanne Guggenheim||South Middlebush Cemetery|
I have a scanned copy of the history of this cemetery. Email me directly if you want it and I haven't sent it to you yet. It is quite interesting.
|Joanne Guggenheim||Wyckoff Graves - South MIddlebush|
Im sure you got 54 emails so are aware that I transferred all of the Wyckoff graves from South Middlebush Cemetery to you. Finally! If I manage any other family graves you want transferred, just let me know and eventually it will get done. By the way, Henry (Hank) Smith, recently retired as resident caretaker of the Van Veghten House and a member of the Somerset Historical Society Board, is related to the Smith's in South Middlebush. Any relation?
Did I ever transfer the memorials to you? Just saw this old message while doing something else and it reminded me. I believe I did send the spreadsheet. Please let me know if there is anything else I was supposed to do -- it's been months; I guess I'm getting way behind!
When I get home, I will send you the spreadsheets. It is one workbook with a spreadsheet for each cemetery plus a master list of all burials from the Historical Society. The HS gave me the lists and I transcribed and sent them back as an Excel workbook. They have not let me know what they plan to do with that. If they are going charge for look-ups, I don't want to post on Findagrave. If they are not, I will post. When you see the spreadsheets, maybe then you could pick and choose which Wyckoffs to transfer.

|Joanne Guggenheim||Other Relatives from Somerset County|
By the way, I have the lists of burials that were published by Somerset County Historical Society for many of the old burying grounds. These were published between 1912 and 1917, I believe. I have put them all on the spreadsheet and gave them to the SCHS. But I still have copies if you want a look-up. Some of the burying grounds were family plots with only a few graves and no longer exist. There are interesting histories of the cemeteries, to. I have not submitted the spreadsheets to Find-a-Grave because I want permission from the Historical Society first.
|Joanne Guggenheim||Wyckoffs at South MIddlebush|
I submitted a short history of the cemetery and the fact that I went with a representative of the Somerset County Historical Society to photograph everything that was still there and still had any writing (so people wouldn't make requests for non-existent things). Although I have submitted it several times over the past 3 years, I have not heard anything. Anyway, the information I posted came from the Historical Society from an article published around 1912 (I'd have to look that up) with information taken from a map that was handed down through the Wyckoff Family. I have transferred the memorial you requested, but do you want ALL Wyckoffs to be transferred? Or a specific list? Just let me know -- I'd be happy to do it. I have no personal interest in these lines. By the way, the rep from SCHS is Hank Smith who is related to the Smiths in that burying ground. Any relation to him? If you email me, I could send you the list of burials and the full history published by SCHS. It is quite interesting.
