|Bio and Links|
|Obituaries, biological information (biographies), genealogical information and other notes will be added to memorials when requested to do so as well as links to other family members.|
Connections or links can be easily made on your own my using the edit key. However, I DO NOT ACCEPT links for the memorials I have posted to those who are buried in a virtual cemetery. This has created too many problems in the past when the the real burial site for the same person is located.
You can also add any images, pictures, etc. directly to memorial without my permission.
PLEASE DO NOT add genealogical (like family trees, census records, military records, etc.) and/or biographical information as well as advertisements to other websites to the "leave a flower or remembrance note section" of a memorial. This is simply not the place for this kind of information. This section of the memorial is designated for a person to leave a personal note and/or a flower in their memory.
I would deeply appreciate it, if you would PLEASE ASK ME to add any genealogical and/or biographical information to the bio section of a person's memorial.

|Bonnie B.||South Orange Cemetery|
I recently came across transcriptions of the gravestones at the South Orange Cemetery which were done in 1949 and published in the New Jersey Genealogical magazine in 1957, Vol 33, p. 9-16, p. 78-86.
This information would be so useful for those trying to find information about their ancestors. I can't really add it as "captions" for the photos as these headstones no longer exist. What do you think would be the best way to add info?
Here are examples of the transcriptions:
Alexander, John, d. July 28, 1858, aged 58 yrs; wife Hannah Boyd, March 21, 1863, aged 67 yrs.
Freeman, Samuel; "relict" Mary Tichenor, d. Jan 27, 1852(?), in 80th year. "A member of the first Presbyterian Church of S. Orange."
Garven, James, "Soldier of the USA 1861-1865"; no other information.
Hall, John B., " Co. H. 26 N.J. Vol., born Nov. 21, 1828, d. Aug. 14, 1904; wife Marinda L., b. 1832, d. 1907.
Craven, Herbert, son of Rev. Charles & Emily Craven 9f England, d. May 4, 1864, aged 27 yrs.

Thank you very much for your photos of this whole family, they're very well done! Have a great week.

I wanted to reach out to you because Catherine PB Hollweg is my mother. I wonder where you got your information from about Mom. Initially I wondered if you saw the grave because I've been waiting to be notified that her name plate was to be added to Dad's military stone. (I live in SC so I haven't been up north since her passing) Secondly, I'm wondering where the information of her death occurring in Nutley came from. Mom was living with my sister in Frederick, MD when she passed.
I hope you will be so kind as to let me take over maintenance of Mom's grave so that I can add it with Dad's.
Please let me know. Thanks!

|Deb B||RE: Photo - Douglass|
Odd that it's showing that way. It's correct on my computer and correct when you click on it for the enlarged view, but for some reason findagrave has the small version rotated incorrectly and I have no idea how to go about fixing that.

|Wendy Gaw Armstrong||RE: Frank McKenny - Military Info|
Thank you for your feedback. I have removed the military notation as you asked and replaced it with a flower dedication.
Francis (Frank) is my cousin. We have searched for information on him for some time. About 15 years ago, my mother's McKenny family in Riverdale, NJ was contacted by his son, Frank, who was later adopted and moved to California after his father's death.
I have been in contact with Frank Sr's McKenny family, and I understand he died from long lasting complications from being gassed (mustard gas) in France with the 38th Infantry during the time of the Second Battle of the Marne in 1918. He did have some success after the War, and became an undertaker and owned a funeral parlor in Nutley, NJ until his death.
Thank you very much for posting information on his grave location, it's very important to our family. I am also very happy to have him recognized for his very important service in WWI.
Best regards, Wendy Armstrong

Thanks for the message. A slip of the finger. Should have been 1833 not 1883. Thanks for catching that.
