Hi Dave,

For Deborah C. Cooper Peck and husband Hezekia, do you have any known recorded marriage date? Also, your memorial has Deborah's parents as Thomas Cooper and Mary Kingsbury. I have found Mary's birth recorded as Sept. 1, 1637, Dedham, MA, daughter to Joseph and Millicent. Any known recorded marriage date for Thomas and Mary (if you agree they are her parents)? Thanks.

Hi Dave,
We respectfully request permission to use the cemetery entrance photo in our online tree with credit. Marie has a cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition.

Thanks for your consideration.

I think we're 5th cousin twice removed. So not that close. She's on the scene a century after my Parkers left, but it sounds so fresh in her book.

Jannetje Vrooman
The information that you have for her is not correct. There were two Jannetje Vrooman's born in Schenectady, New York. This Jannetje married Simon VanPetten, but you have the vitals for the other Jannetje. #1 Jannetje was baptized 2 August 1730 and her parents were Henrick Adamse Vrooman and Marytje Wemple and married Simon. The #2 Jannetje Vrooman are the parents of Hendrick and Engeltje Slingerland, with the correct vitals as on your site.
Thank you for your great work!!

RE: Jacob Demouth
Oh! I did not know there was a map associated with the cemetery name. That alone is a big help for all my other research! Thanks. That's probably all I need. I'm not too shy to knock on someone's door to ask permission to walk on their land. ;-)

RE: William Schermerhorn
You wrote: "The photos you added to he above entrée 143656926 are actually for Jacob Van Hoesen 138466167. If you have time it would be great if you could go and clean that stone to be sure."

The photos for George Van Hoesen 143656926 are recognizably for George. The one for Jacob 138466167 with the lichen has an emblem nearby (seen to the left of the stone in the photo) recognizing him as Revolutionary War hero. I could read only part of the inscription but the dates matched. I don't clean stones. The location is given for someone else to try if they want.

RE: James Vanderwerker/Vanderwarker
Yes I do understand what would happen if the name change were to happen. After I made the request for that change I realized what concenquences would happen so I sent you another request to cancel the change.

My family is Planansky which connects to James Vanderwerker/Vanderwark. My family roots come from Nebraska. Wanek Shimek Hovorka Planansky and Hudson.

Thanks for your reply any questions please feel free to contact me again.

Nancy Van Patten
Dave, I recently visited Vale Cemetery in Schenectady. Many of my family are there. I was able to find Nancy Van Patten Liddle and her family. I have photos of the stones. I will upload and then you may enter all the relations. They are in Sec L1 plot 319. I found this information on the Vale website and the people at the cemetery were very helpful.
