Isabelle Boyden Taylor
Hi Michelle,
Trying to link parents to Isabelle Boyden Taylor

Here is her Obituary from her birthplace:

OBITUARY: "Wellsboro Gazette" [Wellsboro, Tioga Co., PA] Thursday,January 22, 1931, p. 1 Daughter of Wellsboro Woman Dies at Falls Mrs. Isabelle Boyden Taylor aged 51 years, of Niagara Falls, died early Tuesday morning in a hospital following a recent illness and subsequent operation. Her only surviving relative is her aged mother, Mrs. Alfred Boyden, of Purple Street, Wellsboro. Mrs. Taylor was born in Wellsboro May 20, 1879, a daughter of Alfred and Mary Boyden, and spent her early life here. As the wife of William Taylor she spent the remainder of her days in Niagara Falls, where she had business interests. One brother Dana, died about a year ago. Mrs. Boyden, accompanied by Mrs. George Watkins went to Niagara Falls on Tuesday to arrange for the funeral which will be held in that place. Deepest sympathy is extended the bereaved mother.
Buried: Oakwood Cemetery, Niagara Falls, Niagara Co., NY

Thank You for the work you do.

I see that you have posted an Alan Stewart, he was a Lawyer from Niagara Falls, with a headstone. And also without a headstone, which was his wife, Mattie Stewart nee Moody, Mattie's Parents were my Grandparents. Are you a relative? or just someone who goes to cemetary's and post them? Would like to hear from you..Thank You.. Patty

RE: Bartel
Hello, I just saw the message you left on the Bartel's. I'm not related to them so if you would like me to transfer the memorials into your care, I'd be happy to. Just send me their memorial number so I have the right ones. I didn't see a Reinhardt or Lina listed but perhaps I have nicknames or something.

RE: John Council Messenger
Back in the 70's our Historical Society began researching all pioneer families from our area. I have information on John Council, his three marriages and the children of these marriages.

RE: Robert Gittins
Done -- I added birth and death information and a biography. The site editors should also be adding Gittins to the famous listings -- he qualifies because he served in Congress.

I find it interesting that his grave marker has the wrong birth year -- 1870. I found several documents including passenger manifests from his overseas trips, all of which indicate that he was born in 1869.

I'll try to find a photo of Gittins to add to this page, too.

Please feel free to let me know if you want me to make any additions, deletions or edits.

I noticed when going through the list for Oakwood to compile a list of memorials that need grave pics, that you made three for this person. Could you please delete two of them. thanks

RE: Bartels
Hi, Michelle,
Sorry, but I didn't make these memorials. If you contact K. Alan Lewis, he/she could probably help you.
Happy hunting,

Hi Michelle,
I've been trying to fulfill as many photo requests as I can for Forest Hills Cemetery, since it is practically in my backyard, but the cemetery office will only look up the plot location of two names for free, charging a prohibitively high fee of $15 for every two names after the first two. I do know, however, that by calling the Forest Hills Cemetery office during business hours (617.524.0128) or send them an email ( other people have been able to get the plot locations for free. If you find out the plot location, I'll be happy to photograph the headstone for you the next time I'm there. If you resubmit your photo request with this information other photo volunteers will be able to access it as well. Finding out what Path or Avenue they're on would be most helpful.

Bartel-Bentley Memorials
Happy to have assisted you in adding headstone photos of your grandparents resting place in Largo Cemetery. These photo additions, along with many others, are the result of a project completed by myself and colleague Susan Hill Davis to make sure as many burials as possible in Largo Cemetery are memorialized on Find A Grave and headstone photos are included. I am sure Susan will be happy to transfer the memorials to your care if you ask. Like yourself, we do it to aid others and the transfer of a memorial to a loving family member is the final frosting on the cake. Stay well Michelle and Warm Regards.

Thank you for all you have done. I was just on here getting ready to figure out how to upload the picture.

RE: A. Z. Chambless
Sorry I cannot help you on the Chambless burial place. The reason I posted Concord Cemetery is because my grandfather was a minister there and I have lots of relatives buried there. But the Chambless folks are not related to me (that I know of) and I have no information. Sorry again.

Thank you for the reminder to change the Cemetery location. Was there a larger stone that the name marker was part of. Like a family marker?
