Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired in April 2005. I started doing genealogy in August 2005. It all started with my wife, Dianne,(Dianne E. Smith) and her interest. I've enjoy traveling to many cemeteries. Dianne would say, "My best friends were all cold". She passed away, November 12, 2007.

I have since married Bonnie (Snow) Johnson in 2009. I told her I would do my best NOT to let grass grow under her feet. Together, we enjoy "grave searching" for others as we can.

If you would like to use any photos I may have posted, all we ask if you give credit to us something like, "Photo courtesy of member #47060899".

Murray - Sylvan Cemetery, Wurtsboro
Hi John -

I'm just fulfilling the Cornelia and James Murray photo requests for this cemetery and wanted to let you know that I found several other Murrays in the plot that were not yet listed, so I added them. Here they are, in case you have a particular interest in taking a look:
James Philip
Charles Cunneen (next to Louise - maybe her husband?)
Elizabeth Murray Reid
William J. Reid

No actual the crew at the Grove Cemetery are straightening stones and they had just finished doing them a couple of days before.

This may be the same as the person that I added #158847246. Check it out and let me know. I got the dates from the memorial stone. If it is the same person, I will put my information on yours and the picture, then delete mine. We don't need duplicates if we can help it. Thanks.

I have a question about the stones. Are they the same person or 2 different ones? The first stone has Harry S with dates 1883-1944 and the 2nd has Harry C with dates 1884-1944.

There may be an error here. The second picture is a stone that has 4 names on it. I believe the first 2 names to be the parents, Harry C and Irene not as you have listed, Ernest R Morse and Marjorie M Young Morse.
