Bio and Links
Bio Photo Well, folks, the end of 2015 is now almost 7 months in the past and I'm still at it. So no more predictions on when I'll stop. And to all of you who left messages on my profile page in 2015 that I'm just looking at today, my apologies. I'll try be be more punctual - but no promises.

The photo dates back to 1955, Camp McCaulley, just north of Linz, Austria and dates me.

Finally, my request memorials not transfer to me still stands. They are yours, and if I've suggested additions, just accept or deny them as is your prerogative. Many thanks to you all.

Dick Finnick

Double checking
Hi Richard

I was not sure if you got my e-mail.
So will copy here.

I am sorry I made duplicates. I deleted the one I had of John to keep your Memorial# 68364571.

I aslo made one for Olive Adelia Memorial# 160635401. It has a little more info. So can we meet in the middle and you delete Memorial# 68364761. I will copy and put the Stones over to Memorial# 160635401.

I enjoy working with people and do not want to step on toe's. I like to thank all who help.

James M.

Hi Dick,
Great to e-meet you !

Feel free to send James my way because I have more on the Pritchard family back to a time they lived in Nova Scotia...It would be fun to compare notes.

Plus I can introduce him to some of his cousins...
All the best,

Thanks for the heads-up on the relationships, names, dates, etc on S Katie Dowd. It's a bit of a long story, but I've just had 14,000 memorials transferred to me with another 11,000+ on the way. I've been volunteering with John O'Connor for about 8 or 9 years and he's getting ready to fully retire at the ripe young age of 84. We've been back-filling data since we began putting up memorials in 2007 from cemetery log books here in Springfield. The records go back to as early as the 1640's. He hasn't been able to keep up with edits, suggestions and corrections with failing sight and health in general. If you spot any more issues, please let me know either through Find A Grave or directly at I'll take care of them as soon as is I can.

Ida Johnson Cannon & son Herbert Cannon
Your question about Ida's death date and her son Herbert's birth date sent me into a frenzy of research on the family. I think I have now corrected both dates. Thanks so very much for bringing the errors to my attention. I've been doing research on my Cannon family, off and on, for about 15 years. The early deaths of Miles and Ida and the break-up of their home was depressing for me. And researching the lives of their orphaned four sons and two daughters was very difficult. The various children went to orphanages, to neighbors' homes, and to the military. I have found all of them through the years except for Frank Washington Cannon (named after Ida's brother) who supposedly died in Denver, CO. I'm still searching for his grave. Are you related?

Cotchett, "Evergreen Cemetery"
You should know that there is no such thing as a so-called "Evergreen Cemetery" located in Manhattan. Those dying in Manhattan in that period, like Chas. Cotchett (166110511) would have been buried in the "Cemetery of the Evergreens" located in Brooklyn/Queens, if it says "Evergreen cemetery" on their death certificates.

Almost no one dying in Manhattan in that period is buried in Manhattan because the city forbade the vast majority of new burials within city limits after the 1840s. The vast majority dying in Manhattan were buried in the so-called "rural cemeteries" in Brooklyn/Queens (Evergreens, Cypress Hills, etc.)

If you call Cemetery of the Evergreens and give a death date, they usually will give you a plot location.

Eventually I will inform Find a Grave that the creation of an "Evergreen Cemetery" in Manhattan is a mistake, but first I wanted to inform everyone who wrongly thought their memorials are located there.
