Family genealogist since 1980, researching the following Ancestors: Dense, Murray, Cuddy, Purcell, Lyons, Hourihan, Crowley, Haley, Coons, Ginty & Twiggs Families of New York, Boston, Mass., New Brunswick, Canada, County Mayo, Town of Ballina, County Kilkenny, County Kerry & County Limerick, Ireland.
In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

|Kate Foster||RE: Seward B. Poole|
That would be FANTASTIC! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your help!!!
|Kate Foster||Seward B. Poole|
You created an entry for Seward B. Poole in Green-wood Cemetery with a full death date. Do you have proof he is buried there and that is the date he died? I tried searching the cemetery's website and he isn't listed as being buried there. He is my 3rd great grandfather, I just want to solidify the details I have. Thanks for your help!
|Carole Elizabeth Nurmi Cummings # 47178231||Cheery Hello New York Historian|
I just tried transferring the memorial # 33207685 back to you because I cannot delete the duplicate. You must be able to do that. For some odd reason it is not allowing me to transfer it back your way.
Any ideas? Apparently a lovely gentleman J L had asked for you to delete this memorial and you transferred it to me.
Any ideas on what I can do now since I have not been able to transfer back your way?

The above memorial is for the grave of Priscilla J. Godfrey Joachimsen at the Cypress Hills Cemetery at 833 Jamaica Ave in Brooklyn. The person at the cemetery whom I called has no record of her, which confuses me. Can you tell me where in this large cemetery the grave of "Priscilla J Godfrey Joachimsen" is located and confirm that the grave is at the cemetery located at 833 Jamaica Avenue? Priscilla was the sister of John A Godfrey, my great grandfather. I am trying to find his grave, which may be near hers. His death certificate indicates that he was buried in the Cypress Hills Cemetery.
