Thanks for passing along all the great information regarding the people of Pittsford. I appreciate the info, and have updated the memorials.

Comfort Williams
I was able to prove that the tipped, illegible stone in the Williams plot belonged to the Rev. Comfort Williams; I uploaded the plot diagram so you can see, along with a photo of the tipped grave. There is something very poignant about a stone like that. Mt. Hope maintenance goes around each year from one section to the next fixing these headstones, perhaps when they get to this one I'll add another picture for you.

Montgomery
I completed your request today; added photos of Thomas C. and Mary G. Montgomery; all that was left was the base of a monument with his name on one side and hers on the other; most of the inscription was illegible so I checked the plot diagram to be sure. Also added photos for Hugh and Josephine Montgomery, although you hadn't requested them.

Williams
)It's my pleasure to take these photos for you; you are always the first on my list because you provide the section and plot information. This is available online, but it makes it so much quicker and easier if it's right there - so thank you for that! For your information, I did photograph the markers of Mary Washington Williams (1857-1948) and Susie Marie Williams (1894-1979). I'll post these photos by the end of the weekend. The only other marker that was in the plot was the tipped one with no legible engraving; as I said, I'll check with the office to see if I can identify the plot and I'll post the photo if it matches.

Williams
I added pictures of the Williams' headstones that you requested; there are others in the plot as well which I'll add shortly. I did add a photo for Carrie Williams' little cross in the plot next to her sisters. There was a tipped-over stone with no legible writing on either side which I might reasonably assume is that of Comfort Williams; I photographed that as well. The front office of Mt. Hope has plot diagrams; if there is one for this plot I'll check it out when they are open and upload the photograph if it is indeed Comfort's.

RE: James & Margaret Sawyer 41359653 & 5
I have to admit that I didn't try to read the town name when I was there, but I certainly can't make it out in the photo and, if the photo doesn't suffer from any specific limitations of resolution or lighting, I usually can't read it any better in person.

The person who did this survey http://mcnygenealogy.com/cem/mthope-sec-g.htm also seems not have been able to read it.

Holy Sepulchre Cemetery
If you click on the More Information/ at the bottom, it gives you the death date. Also, I happened to find Rochester Church Indexing Project, at www.rcip.info . You can search for baptisms, marriages, and deaths. Mainly Catholic churches, but this may be of some help. With the baptism date, is usually the birth date, and sometimes the other information, but it pays to look under the other categories, too.

I've done Frank Buell's kids although the 1892 NY Census has an Annie, age 5; and Katie age 3 that I can't match up with names of Buell's baptism dates.

re: Buell, Beisheim
You're welcome, Virginia - my pleasure. Maybe you can answer a few historical questions for me -

Are you related to the Buells, or have you studied them? It's a reasonably common name in this area, and in fact, Mt. Hope Cemetery has a "Buell Road" (it's not where they are buried). There's another Buell Road in town as well. Just curious about the origins there.

Also - in the Beisheim plot, Carl and Esther spell their name with an "m" at the end, whereas John and Martha use an "n". Clearly they're the same family, but where did the change in spelling come from? That's the sort of thing that can drive a researcher mad.

One day I will return to Emily's stone and see if I can decipher that inscription. And yes, Julia's stone simply has the name.
