Bio and Links
Bio Photo Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."
~Jim Tipton, creator of Find A Grave.

Families we are researching: Buckmaster, Patterson, Wollam, variations of Teatsorth, Falk/Faulk/Falck, Johnson, Lee, Collier, Eschbarger, Orr, Brinton, Thomas, Grau, Hyde, Case, variations of Brandeberry, Richcrick (Reichenbach), Slote, Balken, Ulmstead, Flower, Dick, Graham, Hyatt, and many others.

Also a focus on our American veterans. We have virtual cemeteries for the 31st and 49th Ohio Infantry who fought during the American Civil War, and one for each war the Buckmasters have fought in.

RE: Elizabeth Ann Ketcham Gaither
Great idea!

RE: Elizabeth Ann Ketcham Gaither
I think you are right that her nickname was used on the gravestone. I see census records and marriage records that use both use Elizabeth and Betsy. Betsa is an interesting variation.

Harrison Miller
I believe the Harrison Miller listed on this findagrave record (90397316) is incorrect.

I found a death record for William H Miller in 1910, which lists his parents are Timothy Miller and Lucy Law.
Michigan,Deaths and Burials Index, 1867-1995
Name:Wm. H . H . Miller
Birth Date:abt 1839
Birth Place:New York
Death Date:4 Apr 1910
Death Place:Monterey, Allegan Co., Michigan
Death Age:71
Marital Status:Married
Father Name:Timothy Miller
Mother Name:Lucy Law
FHL Film Number:1017873.

The correct Find A Grave Memorial# for him is 67118194. Therefore I believe the parents as well as all of the siblings are incorrectly listed with your Harrison Miller and should be changed to the other William Miller.

I have corresponded with a fellow findagrave contributor Paul Newell and have his support on my findings.

Can you please review and advice. Cindy

Eleanor Collier 41432081

I thought I would let you know my reason for suggesting the removal of Silvanus Smith 17405559 as Eleanor's father.
His date of death in Mass. is 1853. I have a census form from 1855 that has him alive at 75 in Conklin, NY. I think we're looking for a different Sylvanus Smith, perhaps born in Dutchess County NY.

Thank you,
Dale Young

RE: Norman Wheaton Faulk
"Norman W. Faulk, for years a prominent lawyer at Preston Hollow, died at his home in Ithaca May 20th. He had been gradually failing for a long time and had been confined to his bed for five weeks. He was born 83 years ago at Preston Hollow where he practiced his profession until a few years ago when he retired and located in Middleburgh with his relatives Mr. and Mrs. John M. Russell. About two years ago, he went to Ithaca to live. Funeral services and burial took place at Ithaca." Windham, New York, Journal, Thursday, June 4, 1914

RE: Norman Wheaton Faulk
Did I send you a copy of his obit? I don't know what the policy on findagrave is, but I think it would be OK to leave him at Preston Hollow since his name is on the stone, and post the obit as part of his bio and that will tell anyone that he's not actually buried there. That should be OK for the time being.

His sister-in-law Charlotte Foote Russell and her husband are also buried somewhere in the Ithaca area. Norman lived with Charlotte (his wife's sister) and her husband John M. Russell, and that's how he ended up in Ithaca. Charlotte and John had a son who died when a student at Cornell and he is buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Ithaca. I had his obit that gave me the info, but I had a terrible time trying to confirm this, because the cemetery office staff don't often answer their phone and the resources for burials in Tompkins County are not complete. I finally got a hold of someone at Lakeview office and they confirmed the son is there and the grave not marked. This was a few years ago, and I hadn't found his parents or his uncle Norman's places of death yet. So another call to the cemetery is in order. I assume they are all there, because there is the plot, but we never know until it's confirmed.

The interesting thing is that Norman was a big time lawyer in Albany County and even the historical society lost him. Thanks for your interest,

John Budreau
Hello! I was wondering if you are related to the Brandyberrys who fought in the Civil War? I am related to the McCunes, to which Lawrence married Sara Jane Brandyberry. I am in the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War and am working on their records.
Thank You!

Alice O Parker LaFountaine
Can't find the message you sent me but, here is info on Alice: Alice Orinda Parker was born in 1850 in Genessee County NY. She married Lewis H. Fountain on April 11, 1874. Both were living in West Branch at the time. He was 28 and she was 23. Lewis bought the plot at West Branch in April of 1881. There is speculation that a child may have died and was buried there at that time, although I have no proof of that. Alice died in April of 1890. I do not know what my source was for this info. The daughters, Myrna and Doreen, were abt 13 and 9 at the time of the mothers death.
