Alice Twilley Garton was not J Marion Twilley's daughter but his second wife. I can send you the marriage certificate if you want to verify it

Thank you!
I have been searching for Ann Jemima Griffin for some time.(#98559261)

Thank you for creating this memorial! She was listed with several different iterations of her first name throughout the decades - I'll put through her specific details today. Finding your memorial was such a delight and a surprise. I'm trying to put the family back together, so I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of requests from me.

Please let me know if there is anything you need documentation for or anything you question. I'd be happy to send whatever you need.

Thank you again for all of your work!

Info Request

I noticed that you were the contributor for Frederick H. Hardcastle's photos. I was wondering, if you remember or still live in that area, if there was a Rhoda or Mary Hardcastle (Frederick was her husband) near him? Her birth year would be about 1865.

Thanks so much,

Photo Request
Thank you so, so much for the pictures of my uncle's grave, Malgrom L. O'Hearon. I never knew him as my father's parents died when all of the children were fairly young and all of the brothers and their sister were sent to relatives home throughout of the country to live. I am not even sure that my father had ever heard from or know about his location or life. Thank you again.

RE: David Noonan St Mary's Balston Spa
Hello Ruth: Thank for the compliment. I live about 10 min. from the cemetery in the Village of Ballston Spa. Daniel Noonan lived about 15 minutes away in the Town of Malta easterly of the cemetery. The 1900 census shows married to Catherine. Letters Testamentary, show Catherine, bros. Michael & Morris as executors. Obituary: Troy Daily Times, Sat. 27 Jul 1901, Troy, NY - Ballston Spa section (Malta), David Noonan, died Thursday (25 Jul), aged eighty-four years. He was born in Ireland, and came to America in 1850. He has resided in this section forty-five years. He is survived by his widow (Catherine) and three brothers. ***I have submitted the obit, birth date 13 Mar 1817, death date 9 Sep 1901 to the memorial manager. I looked for Catherine no luck on death, suspect she died before 1920. She was 95 in 1910 census living w/her 85 year old widowed sister Johanna Powers in Malta. I checked cemetery records in Ballston & Malta to no avail. Also checked a newspaper website "Old Fulton History" no obit. This web site is free, covers a broad area of NY State from early 1800 thru 1980's. Checked local library while doing other research, no luck. Will follow to see changes made. Bill Preston -

Debbie Fellows

My name is Sophia and I've been on a search for my biological family. I was
adopted when I was about one and half years old. My mother was Debbie
Fellows and she lived in Smryna De. She had another daughter, Alicia
Fellows. Her mother, and my grandmother, was Hazel Porter. My biological
mother passed away in 2000. Anyway, I was looking to find her final resting
place and through I found an image you had posted.

I was wondering if you happened to have any further information on her? I'm
not sure if you would, but I thought I'd ask nonetheless.

Thank You!

RE: Jessie May Prettyman
No, that isn't a problem, Ruth! I have her info from a family Bible, just needed a pic to add to her in the family tree...........thank you SO MUCH! You are so considerate to worry about it not being readable~Most times they don't care if they get the whole stone, or clear shot, or WITHOUT reflections of their body or someone elses, lol.........great job!

RE: Ezra & Sarah Tinker
The stone is in 3 West near the GAR Section. Knowing that should help if you get a chance to return.

It was a pretty interesting stone. The day it was initially located, the sun was around to the west, and just couldn't figure a good way to do the parent's side of the stone. To do the children's side, hid behind a stone to minimize my image reflection and employed the telescopic feature. On the return trip to do the parent's side got some good scatter off the stone so could almost walk up to it without having my image present. That way only a little telescopic lens was needed and the resolution stayed pretty high.

Elizabeth Kello's Tombstone

I can't thank you enough for taking the photo of Elizabeth Kello's marker. I would, however, like to change the info about her on this site, but I do not know how to do it. It says that Elizabeth is buried with her husband, Issac Kello (1826-1880). This Isaac Kello is actually her son and not her husband. Because she was born in 1793, if this man was her husband, she would be 33-years-old that her husband.

The confusion was probably created because her husband was also named Isaac Kello. He was born in about 1795. He died on 6 Jan 1840 and was also buried in this cemetery. Is it possible to add this correct information?

Again, thanks for taking the pictures. They were great!

RE: Your photos
Hello Ruth,

Thank you for your kind words. Histories and families are so important so I do what I can to help preserve. Time of day, season, and luck of weather all make a difference. The camera on my iphone provides pretty clear photos so I am trying to exploit that as much as I can.

My picture only tell part of the story. Your photos tell another part of the story. For that, I am sure families value the information equally. Thank YOU for your efforts in furthering the cause in this area. Keep up the good work!

RE: Norris/Dickison/Tucker
Thanks Ruth,

Sorry for the problems trying to keep the family mix in order. Samuel Dickison in Annapolis wouldn't match Amanda's first husband. He was born in Sussex county in 1841 and died around 1870 in Kent county. They had three children and Fannie was the oldest followed by William and John. I have seen numerous spellings of their surname and Amanda was recorded as Dickerson when she married John Tucker at Asbury Methodist Church in Smyrna in 1874. Her maiden name was Shorts.

I have a lot of missing links in the Smyrna - Clayton area. Thanks for your contributions to Find-A-Grave. I don't know what get out of it but it's priceless to us researchers when a missing link suddenly pops up.

And a happy Thanksgiving to you, Ruth. Hope you're missing the snow - slush mix we're seeing right now. Never saw thunder-snow before today.

Ruth, thank you SO very much for creating the memorials for Nellie and Thomas Sharpe and adding the photos in Kelton Cemetery. I have been looking for their final resting place since 1990 when I got my first computer! You can't imagine what this means to me.

Thank you for all you do on Find A Grave, it is SO much appreciated!
