Johann & Catharina Fivecoat
I live 2 miles from the Christie Chapel Cemetery. I also just started taking pictures for Find A Grave. We have been over every headstone there at least 3 times and cannot find any one by the name of Fivecoat. From the research I have done on Ancestry I see they both died in Holmes county, Ohio. The is a Christy Chapel Cemetery in Holmes County. It would not make sense for them to be buried in Allen county if they lived and died in Holmes county. If you could edit your information it would save a lot of confusion for people doing research on them.
Thank you,

Samuel Brillhart
The entry for Samuel Brillhart and his wife says they are buried at Bairs Codorus Mennonite Cemetery but on the photo page it says it's from Bair's Mennonite Meeting House. These are not the same places.

Fivecoat questions

I noticed that you have some postings for Johann Michael Fivecoat and Catharina Elisabeth Fivecoat.

Your reference to them being from France and Maryland seems inconsistent with some other findagrave postings.

I've tried reaching out to the author, but I believe she may have passed away. It's curious that she has a grave picture and she mentions the Rizer's - whom Katherine Fivecoat had several children.

Do you know anything about this? Have you talked with Linda Randles before? Are these just different people?

Johann Fivecoat
I'm assuming you're the one who called the museum about your ancestor, since you said you left a picture request. The fact that I wasn't aware of the name in Allen County bothered me, so I checked on it. Your listing of his dying in Holmes County, as did his wife, clued me in. In that day, they wouldn't have been buried at the extreme other end of the state! Plus, there is a Christy Chapel Cemetery in Holmes County, which includes a listing for Michael Fivecoat and the dates match. I think that's where you'll find what you want.
Sorry I couldn't help you more.

Dora Jackson Rizor
Hello! I noticed your pictures of Dora Jackson Rizor and her family members. She is a distant cousin of mine. Would it be ok if I copied her picture and family members for my family tree? Thanks.

William Edward Bodily FAG memorial
It was great to see your memorials for the Bodilys and the group photo of William Bodily (father of William Edward Bodily) and his many sons. My grandfather is the first person standing on the left, Charles David Bodily. Love that photo and the one of Delilah and the daughters.
I'd love to hear from you and learn more about your connection to this family. Isn't Findagrave a wonderful resource as well as a fine method of meeting distant relatives? Sue

Thank You
Re Rebecca (Carey) Jackson, according to my records, you are correct. If you provide me your email, I will send you my entire file on the Holloway family which includes these folks.

I am another third-generation descendent of James Collins Lovejoy. I believe one of my Lovejoy cousins has already contacted you. Many of James Collins Lovejoy's direct descendents are buried in the large public cemetery in Jefferson, which does not seem to be listed in James' son (my great-grandfather Victor) is buried in Jefferson.

Hugh & Florence Alfrey: Mount Hope Cemetery, Baker
Hi Whitney, Thank you so much for the great headstone shots of Hugh and his wife Florence. It gave me a nickname for her! I have a bundle of Mount Hope Cemetery requests in if you are going back there, and have more to add but have used up my limit for the week. It is great to have these for their pages, thank you!
Regards, Catherine

hyde park photos

Thanks for the Hyde Park Photos.

A few of us have been working on this cemetery (where many of my family friends and many others are burried) and these photos do much to enhance these memorials. I think we will be leaving a lasting legacy for many.

I am very greatful for your service and your time to do this.

Thank you very much.

Thank you for the great marker photo. It is a triple marker. Would you like to also add it to his two wives' memorial. There is a link to them from his memorial.

I appreciate your generous time.

Thomas Lamont's Brief Account..
When I was searching for additional Lamont history came up with A Brief Account of the Life at Charlottesville of Thomas William Lamont and of His Family by Thomas Lamont. Informed the librarian at the Roeliff Jansen Community Library in Hillsdale, NY. She downloaded it and added to their local history files.

Phoebe and Robert Lamont
I finally got around to posting the photos I took of the Lamont inscriptions at the North Hillsdale, NY cemetery. So of course, right after I did, went onto Google search and came up with the very same tombstones on Their pic of Robert's inscription came out better. Oh well; at least I discovered an interesting bit of local history with the Lamonts.

tombstone pic
The Higley's thank you for getting us a tombstone pic for Rebecca (Higley) Sharp. We appreciate your time and efforts. Your kindness is appreciated. Tips from someone that has done geneagoly for 14 years. Don't spend alot of money hiring people to help, there are tons of free web sites and volunteers on Find-a-grave to help. Have a good program like Family Tree Maker to help put things together. Be organize, and collect everything you can, with sources of where it came from. Best of luck.
