I grew up in Johnstown, New York, about an hour west of Albany. Moved to Burlington, Vermont in 1974 and discovered my interest in genealogy. Recently began photographing gravestones, starting with family and expanding to cemeteries near my home. |
Anyone who wants to use one of my photos for their own records is welcome to do so. If used for publication, please acknowledge the source. Thanks.

|Burton Bell||RE: Herbert, Anna & Lesley Jorgensen|
Actually they are not related to me; I was doing some work for my dental technician and noticed the error. The girl's father is Jr and still alive.
I don't really know what is entailed in managing files. Burton
And...Thank you so much for doing what you do vis a vis cemeteries. It is so much help and I know that someday I will do some of it myself. Promise.

Thanks for the Torrisi updates and all the photography in the Johnstown area cemeteries.

Dear MS. Eddy;
I'm recently visited Vermont to see my friend Dan Lindner. He had written a song about Margaret''s grave over 20 years ago. He told me how to find it. I went alone to visit. I was moved. I made a video of the experience and put it on youtube.
I have since researched the story and have additional info to add to FindaGrave. However, Mr. Goldman who manages the site for Findagrave has passed on. I have offered to assume his role but have not heard from the Administrators. Perhaps you would consider the job?
Presently Margaret''s site appears to be locked and unmanaged, but presentable. You can find a link to my video in the flowers section.
If you know how it might obtain additional information on Margaret''s story, it would be quite grateful to be so informed.

|Connie Mayville||RE: Mayville photos in Burlington|
yes, that is my grandmother and grandfather - that would be great. I wondered why my parents stone was so clean, I went to the cemetery at the end of October and the stones looked clean!! Thank y9ou for that as well.

Thank you for adding pictures for my parents, Roy H and Mary J Mayville.
I know this will be a unique request but would you be willing to delete your memorial for him. I know it's not the norm but I thought I would ask. I have done his wife's and when I went to connect to her husband, I found that there was two-yours and mine. I took care of her for the past couple of years and was close to the one daughter. Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for your time to take the photo of Robert Morse's grave. Appreciate it.
|Laura Kane-Potvin||RE: Saint Patrick's Cemetery Johnstown|
There were two Kane families in Johnstown but they were not related. The ones you speak of are not related to me. My Kane family was from Fisher Ave in Ward 2; the Fahertys Glenwood Ave in Ward 2; the Burkes on Briggs St, Ward 2 as well.
I look forward to hearing from you when you get back from vacation. Thanks for your reply.

I keep crossing your path. First from Sharon Tolley Miller (looking for her adoptive mother), on ancestry.com and now on find-a-grave.
I am related in some way to Sharon, so perhaps to you as well. Who are you? I grew up in Johnstown and my father (John Kane) got me interested in genealogy as a child.
When you did the interments at St Pat's did you just photograph your family? Did you go to St Pat's Church and look at the records there.
The reason I ask is I find the find-a-grave list incomplete.
Anyway, feel free to contact me. My tree on ancestry is LauraKane1957.
Look forward to talking to you.

Hi Peg - Most of the memorials I created at this cemetery were from photos I took about 2012. The kindest thing one could say is that they were difficult to read, and that it was a good thing they were never posted. It's nice to see your great, readable photos on those memorials :) I believe your photo is on the right memorial, which is now updated with the correct dates. Thanks for your work and the heads up about the errors. -Deb
