Bio Photo I am a retired programmer, interested in Genealogy, Computers and Traveling. I live in the Detroit Area and will be more than happy to visit any cemetery and take a picture of a grave of interest. Any of the pictures or other information that I have posted to findagrave.com can be used by anyone for whatever volunteer purpose they would like. You may not use the pictures if they will be used for a make for profit purpose. Other than family members any memorials will be transferred to you if requested. I would prefer transferring the memorial to you than to add or make changes to the memorial. Also please give me a little time to transfer the memorials. Thanks

RE: Jacob Vansteenberg
Thanks for the quick response!

I was talking about memorial #17351124
Jacob Vansteenbergh
Birth: Jun. 9, 1787
Death: Sep. 14, 1848 (the headstone looks like 1818)

https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=van&GSiman=1&GScid=1319&GRid=17351124&

When you added the people, were you working off of a list? If so, do you know where I can find more burial information?

I am excited to see this and will be researching more to find something about the above Jacob. And I will be taking a drive to the cemetery soon. Thanks for sharing!
Hope you are doing well.Its been a few years since our paths crossed at OPC.

Jacob Vansteenberg
Hi Jack,
I was looking at this picture and thank you for taking it of Jacob Vansteenberg in Oakland County, MI. I am wondering where you got Jacob's birthdate? If this date is correct (June 9 1787), I've been looking for him for many years and he would be the son of Henry Steenbergh and Lydia Rapalje.

The death dates you have posted and the gravestone date is different (1818 and 1848)

I've been looking for Jacob in New York instead of Michigan??? This would be a breakthrough for me. I may be taking a drive to Holly this weekend. :) Please let me know what the death date is and any more information you may have. It would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Cathy Wilson

Crescent Hill Cemetery photo
Hi Jack,
In your public comment your stated it's okay to use your photos as long as we're not using it for something to make a profit. But I would still like to publicly ask permission to use your photo for Crescent Hill Cemetery, on Facebook's check-in for the cemetery. I had grabbed it before asking permission and someone seems to have an issue with that. So would like to publicly ask if we may use it on the cemetery site on Facebook? Please, and thank you, ahead of time.
Regards,
Cheryl Burtch

Francis Adams Born in England, came to the Colonies in 1692, died in Kingston. Husband of Mary Buck. Son of Richard from Chester, England.
His father, "while making a clearing in New Hampshire to settle upon, was taken prisoner by the Indians, bound hand and foot, fed upon a few parched corns daily until his sufferings were extreme, when some of the Indians drew their bows and killed him."

Memorial # 14791276
Hi,

Just a couple of comments/suggestions:

Findagrave Memorial # 14791276
The Death Certificate you have attached to this memorial should perhaps be attached to a different Findagrave Memorial because the information on the death certificate does not coincide with that of the memorial.

The correct information based on Census, marriage, and death records:
Albert R. Henderson b 31 May 1840 d 8 Feb 1921 was the son of Rufus and Elizabeth (Hathaway) Henderson.
His wifeís name was Catherine who was b Aug 1839. Albert and Catherine had a son named James Henderson b Feb 1869 (birthdates are according to the 1880 US Census of Richmond, Macomb Co., MI)


I believe the death certificate currently attached to your Findagrave Memorial # 14791276 should instead be attached to the following Findagrave Memorial # 135754054. According to the death certificate this Albert R. Henderson was born on 13 Feb 1840 in Canada and he died 22 June 1918. This Albert Hendersonís parents were James Henderson b in England and Mary Stewart b in Ireland and his wifeís name was Adella L. __Henderson
