Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching the family tree on both my husband's and my side. Some of the names of interest: Mountain, Briggs, Rasmussen, Brundage, Woodgerd, Porter, Dale, Depue, Hall, Stryker, Stivers, Martin, Barnes, Garvin, Heath, McGinnes, Striker, VanCampen. These folks lived in NY, NJ, OH, MD, WY, MT. I have submitted volunteer photos in NJ. Now we will be living in Florida and I will try to continue the adventure there. It's fun and easy and a great way to promote connecting with history.

I hereby give permission to use the photos I have taken and posted to Find A Grave in other genealogical purposes like family trees and Ancestry.Com. (5/14/11) Leave me a public message or . . .

RE: South Orange Cemetery
Hi Bonnie, No offense but, I think you are making this more difficult that it is. All you need to do is say inscription on original tombstone said..... This should solve the fact that there is no longer an original tombstone as well as an original military tombstone.

RE: South Orange Cemetery
Hi Bonnie, Thank you for writing to me about the tombstone inscriptions at the South Orange Cemetery. I believe the best way to solve your concern is to:

1. click on edit of the memorial
2. click on marker transcription
3. type in the the tombstone inscription
4. click on submit edit

This will allow you to sent the tombstone inscription to the person who posted the memorial and all he/she would have to do is accept it. Let me know what you think about this.

Joseph Brundage
Only Catherine is mentioned in Thomas William Brundage's 1989 book but I'm not sure how reliable his info is on Joseph. Has no one done a detailed history of this section of the family? I am descended from Joseph's son George Brundage 1769-1850

RE: Caleb Brundage Memorial 52493746
I believe Joseph Brundage had two wives. Margaret Curry may have been his first wife and then he married Catherine Mools/Molls c.1778. What little info I might have would be from research in the 1980's and personal correspondence with Dick Brundage in the 90's and it is not on my computer. Would need to find those old binders in storage. Does "A Brundage Family Genealogy" by Thomas William Brundage, 1989 list more information?

RE: Joseph Mountain
Once you get through your move, feel free to contact me through email. My email in my profile is current. I doubt if I can help you with pictures. I only knew Ethel, and could probably pick her out, and possibly her sister Betty, but it's been over 50 years since I saw their parents, Charles and Minnie! Good luck with the move, Jane

Joseph Mountain
Bonnie, Joseph Mountain's son Charles and his wife, Minnie Burke, had 2 daughters, Ethyl Kathryn and Betty Carol. Ethyl Kathryn married my mother's brother, Charles Heard, so she was a granddaughter of Joseph and Minnie. I have quite a lot of information on this part of the family and am willing to share. Plus I have more complete dates and places based on vital records. Jane
