RE: Memorial # 74794048
You're welcome, glad you found her.

My Reeds came from England in the 1660's, so there's probably no connection. But just in case, you never know.

I looked for an obit for her husband Earl, but couldn't find one.

I just realized I misspelled her maiden name yet again. I really have to learn to type. Now that you manage the memorial, you'll have to make the correction. Sorry

Glad you found Bertha. I've made the corrections you sent, and will transfer the memorial to you. Looks like the Clum/Glum was my error (Clum was a common name in the area, so I must have assumed it was a typo).

I don't know if there is a stone or not. I do know that a woman named Jan Reasoner spent an entire summer trying to photograph every stone in evergreen (there aren't many rows in Evergreen, the stones are all over the place, so if difficult to know if you've gotten them all or not), so if there's not a photograph, there's probably not a stone, or the stone is illegible. They do have an office at Evergreen, and pretty good records, including whether a stone was erected or not, so you could try calling them.

As for the obituary, I got it at fultonhistory.com, a free website site run by a genealogical angel named Tom, that has millions of pages from NYS newspapers. Two problems with fulton is that searching for something specific can be tricky, and the newspapers come from old microfilms created by the NYS library, many of which are of horrible quality. The computer frequently cannot read the microfilm, although a human eye sometimes can.

I went back out to fulton and found the obit. I have two copies of it, which I will send to you via email when I'm done typing this. The email will come in with the subject line "Bertha Harvey obituary" so you'll know it's not spam. I'll send it as full page pdf, which you need adobe reader to open, and as a jpg from a screen shot I took of it.

Lastly, I notice your last name is Reed. My great grandmother was a Reed so if you're ever tracking the Reeds and get back to Connecticut in the 1700's or Dutchess County in the 1800's, let me know. I may be able to link the families up and give you all sorts of information on them

Please let me know if the obituary come in okay, so I can delete it from my computer
