|Bio and Links|
When I was researching my own family, I received a great deal of help from complete strangers who were willing to help me without asking anything in return. This my way of paying that forward. So it tickles me beyond words to discover my headstone photos as part of someone's family tree. How sad would it be if after all the photos are taken and posted and researched and documented that no one looked at them or cared that they were there. So to those of you who have found my photos and made use of them, thanks for caring and you're most welcome.|
I feel that its important to say at least a little something about each of their lives. They lived, they loved, and had families. For those that have nothing there, they're not forgotten, I just haven't gotten there yet. And while I don't always cite my sources on each memorial, for Long Island special thanks goes to Carolee Nichols Diamond and David Roberts for their unending patience and wealth of information; the transcriptions and family photos of Elbert N. Carter; George Moraitis, Historian for the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson (R.I.P. my friend); Steve Gill from the Patchogue Cemeteries Restoration Committee; Dan Prunty, Ruland Funeral Home and President of Cedar Grove Cemetery, for his patience and tireless trips into the basement.
If you find something that needs correcting, or if you have information you'd like added, please use the SAC and I'll be happy to make the changes. If you need to contact me, send to aislin at optonline dot net

|Neil Hawkins||RE: Lake Ronkonkoma|
Thanks for solving the mystery for me. If you have no objection, I'll get them merged. Of course, that will create dupes in Lake Ronkonkoma Cemetery. You may lose a few memorials as hers are older and Edit doesn't always handle those "properly". Looks like there are five in that category.
|Neil Hawkins||Lake Ronkonkoma|
I have a confusing situation I hope you can shed some light on. I contacted Paul1957 and he said you might have the answer.
I noticed you have created memorials in Lake Ronkonkoma Cemetery and posted a photo in Methodist Episcopal Church Cemetery at Lake Ronkonkoma.
Are these by any chance the same cemetery? There are only 17 memorials in ME and nearly half are duplicated in Lk R including the one you posted a photo for ( 6408868). I know there are two separate parts of Lake Ronkonkoma Cemetery, but I can't get a handle on how the ME fits in. I haven't been able to find any records for ME except here on Find a Grave. Just thought you might have some insight on the problem.
|Huntington Historian||RE: Huntington's Old Burying Hill Cemetery|
Thanks. Would you happen to still have that brochure or remember when you picked it up?
|Huntington Historian||Huntington's Old Burying Hill Cemetery|
I am the Town Historian for Huntington. Dave Roberts tells me you may have posted the description for Huntington's Old Burying Hill Cemetery.
The description states that there was an earlier cemetery in what is now Heckscher Park. We believe that is incorrect. Dave says he thinks he was the source for the statement based on hearsay from forty or so years ago. But Dave didn't post the description on Findagrave.
If you did post that description, could you remove the statement about an earlier cemetery?

|Linda M. Welch||Death of James Henry Memmott|
How can Mr. Memmott be dead (you have him dying in 1896) and yet in the census (although the name is Albert Memmott)it looks like he and Caroline and little Lottie were living in Newark (Essex Co.) NJ in 1900. where did you get his death record? thanks so much. Linda M.Welch (researching the Burkinshaws)
June 1, 1900 census: Newark ward 6, Essex Co. NJ
105 So. 9th St. Albert Memmott (Eng. May 1845, 55 m. 34 yrs. machinist, rents) Carrie (b. Eng. April 1847 age 53, m. 34 yrs. 5 kids, 4 alive) Charlotte (Eng. June 1878, 22, school teacher) Henry Whitehouse, Eng Jan. 1850, single, boarding, silver plater)
