Bio and Links
Mainly located in Ulster and Columbia Counties in New York.

Please do not request to add a birth date calculated from the gravestone, unless the complete age is known or listed (y/m/d). Dates that do not agree with stone and are not primary sourced will be placed in the bio section or declined.

Transfer requests must be submitted via a SAC and must provide the exact relationship and be within guidelines.
Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree outside guidelines is not grounds for a management transfer request. Transfer requests that do not include relationship to deceased or are out of guidelines are deleted.

Upon request, personal use of photos will be given with proper credit or a findagrave link.

Tanner 18017016
Since you seem to manage some Tanner memorials, I'd like to know if you happen to know who Catherine Tanner's folks were. She was born about 1808 in New York, married Samuel L. Fleming. Their firstborn was William, born New York about 1834 - the rest of the children were born in Hillsdale County, Michigan.

Catherine's mother is supposed to be named Rachel Tanner (married name or?). Eleazor seemed to be the right age to be Catherine's father. Maybe he had a brother? Any help with this puzzle will be appreciated. I'm not sure what part of New York this family hails from.

Rose A Saur/Sauer/Saar
I'm looking for a Rose A. Saur, born approximately 1906, definite death date of Sept 6, 1959 in Saugerties. She was married to John C Saur, also died in Saugerties. I'm a little confused why I can't find them on FindaGrave, as the both lived in the area most of their lives and definitely died there. Please let me know if you have any ideas how I might figure this out.
Thanks, Eva

Thank you for taking the time to photograph and share the grave marker for Barnabas Horton. Through research I believe that he may be my 10th Great Grandfather. May I use your photograph in my personal family tree file? I use these photographs as an additional source documenting the life & death of my ancestors and their descendants. I will so note that it is being used with permission from Find A Grave Contributor: Fred Saar #46511066.
Thank you again for your time & effort, it is greatly appreciated.

Do you add to the memorials? If so...

I didn't know about this line of my family until a few months ago. Turns out my 5th great grandmother, Margaret Roorback, is less than ten miles away. After a lot of pictures at different angles, I was able to decipher enough of the words on the stone to google. I think it was written by Francis Bunney 1543-1617:

My bark is past- the haven's won-
I fear no stormy sea;
God is my hope, my home is heav'n,
My life is happy ease.

This hope, this home, this life so sweet,
Who'ere would wish to win,
Must banish every vain delight-
Each bitter root of sin.

Sunnyside Farm Cemetery
Hi Fred, Have you ever been to Van Alstyne plot at Sunnyside? I would love to see some pics of the plot. I'm a direct descendant of Marten Abraham Van Alstyne who died c. Jan 1791 and is probably buried on the plot with his wife, Catharina Van Alstyne. There are many others that I think are buried there. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this farm appears to be directly west of Lindenwald.

Krum Stones
Hi Fred: I wonder if you can tell me where you found the five Krum gravestones (Martin, Jacob, Barbary, etc.) in Chatham Center, NY. I'm working on the Krum family history (mostly in the Krum cemetery in Hillsdale) and would like to go to the spot and view these outliers, if possible. You created the entry in 2014. I am wondering if this might be a small family plot on private land? Thanks for your help.

RE: Paul Adams.
I've contacted several of the cemeteries that they have stones in, but NONE of them have any record of them being buried there. I asked Why would they have stones there if they aren't buried there? No one knows! I also asked "Would there be any paperwork if they just had stones placed there as cenotaphs" and every place has answered YES, they should have paperwork, even for just a stone. So I'm totally baffled. One place was going to check and see if there was a stone there. He said it was POURING down rain at the time and he would call me back today. I'll let you know what I find out!

RE: Paul Adams.
LOL! Of the space kind or the border kind?!
One stone (in Brevard) has a different YOD for Betty. It's listed as 1995, but everything else is identical!
