I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

Margaret R. Dunlap Poff
Hello Mr. Ferris,
I would be happy to receive the Memorial for my 3rd Great Grandmother Margaret R. Dunlap Poff. Is there anyway you could take a picture of her actual gravesite for me though? There is only a picture of the cemetery & years of her birth & Death. No particulars.
I would much appreciate it.

scrolling through Find a grave, came upon my Aunt's grave in Old Still water cemetery, Sussex u have two siblins missing my mother's father was A. John Adams, went by John - he was Bertha's brother
he was born Nov. 20 1875, died Nov. 5, 1935 although according to death certificate his body was released to "Sussex County" there has been no success in finding his grave - have looked at other cemeteries where more of his family buried, no success - from a lady who has managed a lot of my Adams family grave records, I received a lot of info and according to her info there was also a sister named Anne born 1876 I have no date of death down the road, may have records transferred to me, but tied up right now, also have a cousins son who may be interested - any questions, email me

Isaac Ferris
This is my 6th greatgrandfather. I'm wondering what the structure is in the picture that you included, stating that Isaac built it in 1803? AND, if it's still standing, and where is/was it located? Thanks -- Ellen

Thank you for author Conklin Mann (1884/1966) transfer!
Thank you so very much for the surprise transfer! While studying the detailed Wm Ludlam of Southampton, 1943 TAG article by author, "Conklin Mann, Esq. of New York City" my curiosity arose. I will hope to discover that he and I are Ludlam/Ludlow distant cousins back in 1600s Long Island. Your kindness is much appreciated! Best to you and your lineages.

If you would like, since you're downsizing memorials, I would take Oliver's. He is my 5th cousin.
