Bio and Links
Bio Photo After taking a cemetery tour in 2008, I decided to photograph and transcribe the graves of the Civil War soldiers buried at Pittsford Cemetery. That little project snowballed into an obsession to find any information I could about these hometown heroes.

Since that first tour, I have given many cemetery tours of my own, and I continue to be amazed at the interesting people who lived in my own town and who now permanently reside in the Pittsford Cemetery and the Pioneer Burying Ground.

The majority of the graves I list on Find A Grave are people who reside in my neighborhood cemeteries. I have seen the graves and, in many cases, personally tend to them on a regular basis.

Find A Grave has been very helpful in my personal genealogy searches, as well as to my Civil War soldiers project. I look forward to assisting others with their searches as a contributor.

My blog, Illuminated History (, details my Civil War soldiers project.

RE: Sophia Perrigo
Thanks for the offer of help, Vicki, I really appreciate it! I never know where I'm going to end up when I start on a new family. Unlike what it is today, Wilson was actually a thriving area "back in the day." People came from all over the NE - some stayed, some moved on further west. A lot remained in the local cemeteries, while their families continued on. Tracing them from where they came from, to who they left in Wilson, to where they are now is quite interesting.

Take care.

RE: Sophia Perrigo
Thanks, Vickie! I'm working on a database and genealogy for the cemetery in which quite a few of Sophia's husband's relatives are buried, so I'm researching a lot of families I don't know. It can get really confusing, so I can use all the help I can get keeping folks straight!

Thanks for all your work on find-a-grave! It's especially nice to find folks associated with this project who already have memorials. At the very least, the info on those memorials gives me a starting place.

Take care.

RE: Howard J. Knecht
Thanks for the info. I have run into the same roadblocks regarding the lack of marital information for Virginia Hartman. no marriage or divorce certificate. out of curiosity, in what newspaper is the obituary. i haven't been able to locate it.

interesting about Kerbaugh Inc. how do you know he worked on the canal project. Couldn't it have been something else?

RE: Howard J Knecht
Thanks. I am wondering if this is the same Howard J Knecht who previously married to Virginia Mitchell Hartman (1891-) and who resided in Lancaster, PA, and had at least one child.

Good evening, Vicki. I see you created a Find A Grave page for Howard J Knecht. I see the image of the stone includes the title "Husband". Is it clear who the wife is? Not sure if your side near the cemetery. Thanks.

RE: Hazel Boyce Lines
You are welcome. In retrospect, I'm thinking that I should have supplied the link for the wedding notice, but there was only about seven minutes between your messages, so hopefully all is well that ends well. Next time I'll try and remember.
