John S. White
Hi Lydia,

First thank all the girls scouts and yourself for what you have done to the Harrington Farm Cemetery, it is greatly apprecated by people like me who research their family history.

I found your Find A Grave memorial for John S. White Find A Grave memorial #69975007, in which you state his birth 1744, and died 21 Oct 1804, Aged 60 years. How sure are you of these dates?? Did you obtain this information off the headstone??

The reason I ask is that my 5th Great Uncle was John S. White, and his wife Susannah White is buried in Easton Rural Cemetery, Find A Grave #83006278, however, I can not find John S. White's name listed in that cemetery. I know he died in Easton, I have found his last will which was dated 3 Oct 1846, and recorded on 14 Nov 1846, and states he is of the town of Easton, and which would place his death between 3 Oct 1846 and 14 Nov 1846.

I was wondering if the date of death for John S. White (Find A Grave #69975007), could really be 21 Oct 1846 instead of 21 Oct 1804, which would place his birth (60 years) about 1786, then this burial could be my 5th great uncle.

Let me know what you think

Hello, I noticed that there are two headstone photos on this memorial, and they are not the same grave. (Not sure why I didn't notice this before!) Can you please tell me why they are both posted to the same memorial, and who the other headstone is for? Thanks for any info!

John Henry McDonough
Hello Lydia - [I apologize if this is a duplicate, but my laptop froze when I was previously trying to send you a message.]
I am researching my husband's McDonough ancestors and the subject memorial you created at Saint Agnes cemetery is for his great uncle. I see that you have specific information posted there and wondered from where you obtained it? The info on the plot owner and last address allowed me to get further in my research. If it is a source with more info I would be most happy to use it. If it was just from the cemetery records, I applaud your efforts. In any case, thank you for doing this and also rehabilitating the sites. Janet Mulshine

Wurtman Transfers
Hi Lydia, I received the other Wurthman transfers, and yes, it is fine with me. I am happy to have them. I am curious however as to how they are related. I was happy to see the double n on the end of the Wurthman name. When my father-in-law passed away I had to go through his things and I came across his fathers birth certificate and that is when I first learned of this. He had dropped the last n after coming to America. Would know their exact relationship to the Wurthmans that I had previously requested? Thank you for wanting to keep this family together, I greatly appreciate it. Fondly, Crissy

Thank you for the Wurthman transfers, may I also request the transfer of Helen,Carl,Charles Wurthman & Mary Grupe-Wurthman, they all connect. By the way, I think it is so very wonderful what you are doing, volunteering to help restore the cemetery. When my mother-in-law, Hazel, passed away I can remember my father-in-law, William, commenting on how much it had deteriorated through the years. If I lived closer I would gladly help. I now live in my hometown and last fall the boy scouts took on that same task, volunteering their time to clean-up and restore one of the towns oldest cemetery, which I will be helping them to do in the spring. Kudos to you and your Scouts for your generous act of kindness! -Crissy

Crummey Family
Thanks so very much for all the photos on this family. I have been searching for this family for years. This is my girls family, my ex-husband's father's mother's family. What a thrill they will have when I tell them I found the Crummey family in New York!

Thanks for all that you done! You are blessed!

Harrington Farm Cemetery
Thank you and the girls from your former troop for reclaiming this cemetery! We had searched for this cemetery once on a family trip. We were not able to find it and assumed it had been plowed under years ago. What a happy surprise to find that total strangers cared enough to restore it. :-)

On behalf of Dan, thank you for all the transfers.

Thank you so much for posting this cemetery. Thank you also for helping preserve it. Many generations of my family is buried here. Do you have any additional information regarding the cemetery and the people who currently own it?

Again thank you. I'm so happy that the cemetery was preserved.

RE: Anton Hertcorn
You're welcome. I'll have to look for more to remove the ads from. I love Find A Grave and would love to keep it in the "free zone"! It's a great site and so exciting to find a long lost ancestor.
Thanks for all you do,

Transfer- Friebel
Hi Lydia,

I forgot to ask you to transfer the great grand parent's. Charles Friebel #65031914 and Natalie Geyer Friebel #65031875. The information that you put down was very helpful in my research and brought people together. I will not take that info off. It is very important for future generations!

Thank you, Annette #47901904

I just want to thank you both so much for taking the time do take care of my ancestors. I live in south jersey, if not, I would be right there with you.
All of the Knaufs are my ancestors in some way, but John and Margareta are my great great grandparents. Thank you again for all of your hard work.

Evang. Prot. Cem.
Ah, "Records, 1850-2004; bulk, 1850-1948". They have a number of cemetery records or transcriptions in their catalog, I saw. Did you get my February 11 e-mail with the list of Schifferdeckers in one of St. Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church's old books? I don't think there's any in their cemetery, though, unless perhaps one interred under a married name.

Thank you for linking Lorelo to his parents. Yes, I am related. Lorelo was a brother to great-great grandfather Eben Cook.

Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I know it is hard to devote all your time to this. I have dreams of doing it in my retirement if I can still walk!

Do you mind if I use your photo in my research for the Bergers in Albany cemetery? My mother-in-law went every year when she came up from Florida and I don't think she even found the stones for her grandparents. (William and Josephine Weiss Berger)
