RE: Gerald Brosnan
He's in South Richland cemetery and if you're coming from Pulaski get off 81 and take it to Route 11. Turn left and you have to take the road opposite Tinker Tavern Road, about 4-5 miles down 11. Turn right there and follow it to a 4 way. Turn left and the cemetery is on the right. When you go in take the second entrance. I don't remember exactly where he's located but the section next to the newest section is the general area.

RE: Donald LaMountain
Thank you. No, not really a relative, just a very distant connection. But fun to research.

RE: Burns
Cathy, Located in the section and row listed on find a grave. They are well marked so you shouldn't have any problem finding it:)

Taking pics
4) The stone picture looks best if it's taken in front of the stone, not at an angle. Stones at an angle look awful. A trick I use to keep my reflection off the stone: I stand behind another stone and use the zoom on the camera.

5) No 'postage stamp' sized pictures. Set your
camera to take regular sized pictures.

6) Please take the time to brush the leaves and grass clippings off the stone.

It's not all about 'point and shoot' to hurry up. Take some time taking the pictures. Let's honor our dead as best as we can by taking beautiful pictures. These pictures will most likely be the only ones on the internet for generations to come!

(These are all excellent suggestions. Remember, when you post a picture your name will appear under it. All I've ever asked if someone wants to use my pictures in another venue that they give me credit for the pic. It's not proprietary stuff so it's no problem)

(ALWAYS be aware of your shadow!!)

(My pics from my camera come out huge so I crop then resize to conform with Find A Grave requests. Use a paint program if you have one and if not then I suggest you get one.)

(I keep water and a soft bristle brush along with shaving cream, paper and chalk in the vehicle along also with a trowel to clean off makers and attempt to get rubbings for those that are faded)

RE: Earl Skilinski
Earl and his wife are in Section 2. When entering the cemetery when you go past the last marker on the right, before the road splits, turn onto the grass and just past the post with the layout of the cemetery is Earl's marker. The other Skilinski marker is straight ahead from the entrance to the new section and one of the first markers on the left.

Thank you
Many of my ancestors/relatives are buried in Pompey. I live in Washington State, so I can't tell you how much I appreciate your recording all this.
Descendant of John Costello and Patrick Gorman. The latter is buried there but does not have a marker. (info from the sexton)

RE:Peter Wendel(l) # 120362432
Hi Cathy!
What do you require to link him with father? His obituary links him to his father and siblings. You can read the obituary posted on his father's Find A Grave Memorial# 141304818 and linked siblings. I have his baptismal record as well, 25 Dec 1870 Church of the Assumption Syracuse, Onondaga, New York. Birth 8 Dec 1870 Syracuse to Edward Wendel and Paulina. The 1875 NY state census has him with his parents in Syracuse. The 1880, 1892 and 1900 US census has him with his father and step mother, Dorothy/Dora, in Syracuse.
I would love to ask you about one last siblings death I can not find if you have the time? Have a great day!

RE: Kittle
Hi Cathy, I just checked the cemetery tonight to find this stone for you. It is behind the black iron fence near the back of the cemetery. The stone next to her is Charles Thomas LaPine 1877-1942 (mem#63932644). I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need more info. Susan

RE: Caldwell's in Woodlawn, Syracuse
Hello again

according to below link

which is from the Onondaga County Library....they are buried in section 19 lot 37 along with Carrie Caldwell

so perhaps they have no memorial

RE: Caldwell's in Woodlawn, Syracuse
well I found her Obituary and it states that she died in East Syracuse and was to be buried in Woodlawn Cemetry. No mention of a Greene though in the obituary

Please post the photo

Thanks again

RE: Caldwell's in Woodlawn, Syracuse
thanks so much for looking.....I am now under the believe that she is buried elsewhere. I am going to delete for now until I can figure it out.

Thanks again

RE: thank you
It is remarkable. I don't know about Joseph as he was buried long before the others but I do know that his son-in-law George W Lawrence was an undertaker and owned a funeral home business so maybe he got a good deal on stones.

Added by Shannon Campbell on Apr 09, 2017 5:00 PM

RE: thank you
Thank you for thinking of that. I never even requested Joseph's info from the cemetery because I had assumed he died long before the family moved from Watertown to Syracuse. Guess one should never assume. Yes Joseph was Margaret's husband so if the dates match up that would be him. I was going to request edits to Melzar's entry since that is the one that was added by another user several years ago but I see you beat me to it. I'll check his again later to see if I can add anything else but I did add in all their relationship links. This is my first crack at using other than simply being a "looker" so hopefully I did it correctly. I plan to pay-it-forward and photograph several graves on the request list in my own hometown here in Saskatchewan now that our snow is almost completely gone.
