RE: Multiple Connections
Hi Dee:

So sorry for the delay in responding--am always swamped! Would love to meet you sometime. Please feel free to "look me up" when you come to NJ next, or let me know when that will be.

Best regards.

Hi, thanks for your message. The "two different dates and alpha/numeric codes" you asked about about are from the Martin County Genealogical Society's Obituary Index. I have added expanded it on the memorial and added more information on him. Best wishes:

RE: William Meyer
Hi Dee,

There is a large prevalence of children at this church, and the office was very quick to get rid of me. I think they were (and, as a father, I don't blame them) suspicious of a strange man coming around asking about gravestones. Sad to say, but a woman may have better luck that I did - I fear if I go back and hunt around for the plaque that they may call the authorities on me.

RE: James Downing
Dee, Thanks for getting back to me. I think I still have the book so hopefully someone will contact me. I would like for this to be in the Downing family. I know I would treasure it were it my family line.

RE: james downing
Dee, I have no relationship with this Line however I was given a book that belonged to the Downing Family and was trying to make contact with a member of the family. There were many names listed in the book along with dates. No one has contacted me regarding the book. If you know of a family member that would like to have the book for family value contact me.

No PLEASE do not use it there. They have a procedure for you to link back to findagrave.

RE: Maria Brokaw
Hi, Dee,

It's a mystery. I converted the cemetery for Maria Polly Stryker Brokaw, 32870964 from New Somerville to Old Somerville, and when I did that, your picture disappeared of the New Somerville cemetery, and two others appeared for the Old Somerville cemetery. So far, so good.

Then, I clicked on Request a Photo, and got an immediate response that I couldn't request a photo, because there was already a request on file. I've written to findagrave for help.

I'm hoping this mystery can be solved.

Maria Brokaw
Hi, Dee,

Please delete the picture of the New Somerville Cemetery in Somerset County, NJ from the memorial page for Maria Brokaw.

I've discovered I had her in the wrong cemetery. Her stone is in the Old Somerville Cemetery in Somerset Co, NJ.

I can't figure out how to delete the picture you posted, nor have I been able to figure out how to change the name of the cemetery at the bottom of the memorial page.

When you delete the cemetery photo, I would like another photo posted of the OLD Somerville Cemetery, along with a photo of the stone. Can you please help me?

Thanks so much.

Genealogist General, SAR

RE: Johnson Family
Hello cousin:

I added the memorials noted, and the descendants, to my Johnson Family virtual cemetery. I wasn't familiar with that branch of the family, so thanks so much for contacting me.

RE: Caroll Meyer #94854252
Hello, Dee!

I found the picture of your cousin in the 1943 "cruise book" for his regiment, the 24th Marines. I had a relative in the same battalion, who was also killed in action during the war.

I've been researching their unit for many years, and have a website at - it's a newer design and doesn't have all of the biographies up yet, but you might be interested in some of the pictures and history.

If there's anything about Carroll that you'd like to have shared on the website, please email me at and I'll be happy to help out!

RE: Elizabeth Stites Schenck
Hi Dee,
You mean I added her on the 6th of last year ;)
I usually look in cemeteries of german names or other european names and add them. I guess he was not buried right next to them otherwise I would have add him. Do you know when he died?

And the change is also made already.

I am NOT family, just entering the photos I took. And the death certificate was from Ancestry. I don't have a hard copy. I didn't know if it was her, but there were enough similarities to forward it on. Hope it helped! Ellen

RE: John & Rebecca Cutright Photos
Unusual for me, but I put my thinking cap on and found the original photo that was sent to me. It was actually POSTER size, so I had rolled it up & put it in a corner after I had a downsized version made. This was sent to me by Raymond Wolfe who at the time was living in Indiana - I think he later moved to WV to do research - not sure he is still living. John & Rebecca are together in the original which was made from a tintype that he said was made in 1844. They are my husband's gr-gr-gr-grandparents.

John & Rebecca Cutright Photos
I have had these for probably 30 years and don't know if I can provide the source now or not. I do know it came from someone in WV. I'll check my Cutright folder and see what I can come up with. Will let you now what I find.

RE: Arthur Nelson Taylor
Thanks for the feedback. I am relatively new at this system. When I got the original e-mail from Find A Grave, I had thought it was only sent to me. I did not realize that it was sent to all who are active in this zip code and that I was suppose to "claim" the picture. So I went out to the cemetery as it was a sunny day. I went to the church office, found the "Taylor" grave and some 10 additional graves that had not been photographed. I came home, cleaned up the photos and started to upload them to the web site. It was then that I saw that another individual had "claimed" the photo. So I just uploaded my photos as "add a photo" and sent the person an e-mail explaining my mistake. I think she then "unclaimed" the person and I later tried to "fullfill" the request. End result was that the system never did seem to reflect correctly that there were now pictures of the stone. If you have the time, I would encourage you to go out and photograph the stone. I was not able to get a very good picture of it. Hopefully next time I will follow the correct procedures so that the computer will be "happy" with me.

RE: Sutherland Family Cemetery
Hi Dee -

The Sutherland Family Cemetery is about a block from where I live in Springfield, Virginia. There are no markers at all; we only know that it is a cemetery from the Fairfax County Cemetery Survey. I got the burials from the Fairfax Co. survey.

A developer has been trying for years to gain access through the cemetery in order to build some houses on the property behind. The story is that some of the descendants of the Sutherlands and Halls are willing to grant the access, but other descendants threaten to sue.
