Crosbys, Beacon NY
You have misplaced Epenetus Crosby and his wives in a nonexistant cemetery, or more exactly there already was a cemetery created called the Reformed Dutch Cemetery Church Cemetery (containing over 350 burials) in Beacon NY. Someone made the mistake of creating a "new" cemetery called "Dutch Reformed"--but they are the exact same cemetery (behind the Reformed Church in Beacon) containing the same burials. As the latter only has 14 memorials in it, mostly dupes, it makes more sense to transfer the memorials--including yours--to the larger, original "Reformed Dutch Church" Cemetery.

Chester C. Hopkins (1858 - 1897) Memorial# 117422422
Paul R has posted your obit for Chester on his biography. I've suggested (twice) that you be credited as its source. We'll see what develops in that regard.

RE: do whatever the rule makers say 2 do
Okay. I sent the obit to Paul R to post on Chester's bio, with a note that you provided it. I expect that to happen over the next month or so.

Find A Grave deleted my link to their guidance regarding virtual flowers. I'm adding spaces in the link below to see if I can get the URL to you. If interested, you'll have to add them back. Here goes nothing ...

Chester C. Hopkins (1858 - 1897) Memorial# 117422422
I suggest asking that your obit for be posted to his biographical information. That is as follows ...

DIED. HOPKINS At Penn Yan, N.Y., on September 19th, Chester C. Hopkins, son of Elah B. Hopkins, and grandson of the late Mrs. Lydia Ballard, of Carmel, aged 39 years. Died, Sept. 19th, 1897, at his home in Penn Yan, Chester C. Hopkins, aged thirty-nine years. The most of his life was passed near Wayne village. On November 27th, 1888, he was united in marriage to Miss Emma Wood, who is left to mourn his death. In the summer of 1893, they were baptized and united with the South Urbana Baptist Church, of which he was a consistent and faithful member. He leaves a wife, father, three sisters and one brother to mourn his untimely death. "The Here and there are not so far apart As oft they seem to sorrow's waiting heart, The waking love that here no more, shall sleep, Will There the souls in perfect union keep. God, does not moan, thou Heaven be bright and fair, To break the strands between the Here and There. The heart that loves, shall love beyond the skies; The soul that lives, shall live in Paradise; We know that He in joy and peace will keep Our own and His until we fall asleep. The same sweet smile, the loving face so fair But glorified, awaits our coming There. To those who trust and patiently endure, He gives them back bright, beautiful and pure. They are not lost to such as you and me, But still shall love us through eternity; And from temptation and from earthly care, Shall lead us upward to the Heavenly There." The above is taken from the Hammondsport Herald. Deceased was a son of Elah B. Hopkins and a grandson, of the late Lydia Ballard of Carmel, and a brother of Mrs. S.C. Teachman, of Amawalk.


Thanks, Buddy Leech

Waite Vaughan #100362612
Thank you for a most thorough and interesting history of Waite Vaughan, his era, his family and the multiple stories surrounding the death of his enemy Capt. Nathan Pearce and of Waite Vaughan himself. I have been researching Pearces (no relation to me) and can add the following:

Find A Grave

From Mem. for father Nathan Pearce Sr.(#25086615):

During the Rev. War he [Nathan Sr.] was Chairman of the Vigilance Committee of Pawling. The Committee had a sort of discretionary power to arrest suspected Tories, to administer the oath of allegience, and to assess a tax on those who refused to sustain the government. It was called "The Black Rate". His son Nathan Pearce, Jr. was the collector of the fines. Nathan Pearce, Jr. was later murdered by the Tory leader, Waite Vaughan.

Find A Grave Memorial# 24161627 Nathan Pearce Jr.

Nathan's brother,Colonel William Pearce tracked down and killed Waite Vaughn.

I am not a nasty person, I just asked you to remove your post as it isn't a bio.
The below is NOT a bio and is a disgrace.

Find A Grave contributor Kathleen Oster has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Fanny Crosby.

Hannah Eliza Hill Skinner
Do you know who posted all of the information on Hannah Eliza Hill Skinner? I have a copy of a marriage record for Mary C. (E. on most other records) Skinner Wood (d/o Eliza Skinner and Joseph Skinner) to John E. Hall on 16 Oct 1907 in Stanley, Buchanan, Iowa. Mary was on the 1880 census with Eliza and George. However, she was only about 2 years old which means Eliza would have been 53 when she was born. I'm trying to find out if she may have been adopted. Neither Eliza's or George's obituaries mention this Mary. I did see a reference somewhere to a Mary E. who died in infancy.

Thank you,
