Bio and Links
Hello, I have been cleaning and restoring my family headstones throughout all of New York State since 2003. I am currently at 686 headstones cleaned/restored. Since I find myself in some far-flung cemeteries I decided to help others with pictures of their loved ones.
I am currently researching family names:
Arnold-Bliss-Clarke-Closs-Carpenter-Carr-Holmes-Featherly-Knowles-Northup & Williams all of Rhode Island.
"The Headstone Hunter"
Theresa Knowles-Northup Caparco.

Pvt Isaac Gibbs, cemetery in Granville NY, has SAR marker
Hi Theresa,
Doing research on my Lois Gibbs Bill whose brother was Isaac Gibbs, born Lebanon CT and died in Granville, NY. Served in American Revolution as a Pvt (not sure if he served in NY or CT).
You have stated that he has an SAR marker.
Are you in touch with anyone in area of Granville who could take a pic of Pvt Gibbs SAR marker and place with the info you have on your page. I am assuming he does not have a headstone but is enumerated as buried in that cemetery. Read online that the cemetery is called Goat Hill.
Thank you for doing photos of and cleaning up at gravesites.
My husband and I took on a project a few years ago that entailed locating via topomaps and info in a cemetery book the existing gravesites of 35 of the 100 known Revolutionary soldiers/patriots buried in Madison County, AL. We had to cut back weeds, bushes, etc. around the gravesites all of which were in different locations in the county. To read most of them we gently washed each stone. For the most part we were successful.
Thanks for any help you can give.

RE: We should meet
We should. You are not going to beleive this but I just finished a family tree for the Piccolo Family. The wife is from the Valle/DelMese family. Her Aunt Josephine Valle was married twice; once to Pasquale Natale and then to Salvatore Caparco. And I think the Rose Borrelli was from the family that married another Valle. Small world. And I just presented the 218 page tree to them today. Wow. jean
