Bio Photo While new to FindAGrave I've been engaged in genealogical research for better than two decades. I've done several projects for friends and family utilizing Ancestral Quest. FindAGrave has been a godsend for finding information on innumerable ancestors.
I'm always looking for new data sources so send me a note with the tools you use!

Forest Hill Cemetery - Utica - FAG request
You have a request in F A G for a photo of a grave. The memorial site does not include the Plot and/or Lot numbers which would help easily find the graves you want photographed.

If you will call or email the Forest Hill Cemetery and ask for Plot and Lot information, I would be glad to go there and take the photographs for you.

The office number is 315-735-2701 and their email is

Once you have the information, please add it to the person’s F A G memorial site and mark it with a “Photo Request” or email me the burial information at

Please note: If the gravestone is covered in lichen or moss I will attempt to clean them with water and soft soap solution, except for older slate and limestone gravestones. I do not use shaving cream, chalk or abrasives.

Best regards,

Huldah Baker Barden
Greetings, I am very pleased to see your post on Find A Grave. Huldah is my great great great grandmother. My great great grandfather is Ezra. The Bardens are an elusive lot. I am not sure where Huldah and Abram were originally from, or how many children they had. Ezra is the youngest of Huldah, after she died Abram remarried and they had one more child according the the Oneida Co census of 1850 (I think that was the year). Ezra and Nelson enlisted in the 2nd Oneida in 1861, mustered out in 1863. Nelson re-enlisted again, though I can't recall what company. There was a William Barden in that company. Perhaps a brother or cousin. I know where Ezra is buried, along with his second wife and infant daughter. Huldah has been my road block. I am thinking she was buried in a Methodist cemetery in Deerfield which was removed. I have no proof but the family had been active Methodists and I believe that Ezra was born in Deerfield. I recall dragging my poor uncles all over Oneida Co trying to locate the cemetery.
I know this is long winded. I am just very pleased to find someone else looking for Huldah.
Best wishes on your search.

RE: Lelah Graves
Done! Sorry I didn't take a photo of the other Chandler gravestone marker. I noticed it in the background of the photo I took when I posted it last night.

My husband and I are in Montana for the summer so are trying to visit cemeteries with requests nearby. Although Dillon is about two hours away from where we are living. We weren't able to finish the list of requests and hope to get back to Mountain View in a couple of weeks after visiting family leave week after next.

RE: Robert L Casteel
I've made a note & I'll check for him next time I'm up that way......He wasn't there with the others, or I would have taken it, too.....The book I have was made in 1984, so I'll have to search the cemetery for him. I'll check the more recent sections & see if he is in that area.....
