Bio and Links
Bio Photo This photo was taken in 1968 as a high school student working on a tiny graveyard restoration project. My family genealogy has been an intense 14+ year study and has led me back to circa 1755 London. Many folks have been kind enough to assist me in the tedious but rewarding research project. Contributing to Find-A-Grave is my way of giving back and paying forward.

I believe that a memorial belongs with the family and loved ones to cherish and maintain. My mission is to be cooperative with others doing research and I am more than willing to transfer memorials I have created.
*** When photographing a memorial, I do not alter it's condition. I take them as I find them!

"I think most people can do a whole awful lot more if they just try, ... They just don't have the confidence that they can write a novel or they can write poetry or they can take pictures or paint or whatever, and so they don't do it, and they leave the planet dissatisfied with themselves."
quote from Gordon A. Parks, Sr. 1912-2006

RE: McCarthy
Hi Louise: you're very welcome. The section has been added to the list of those that are regularly maintained albeit on a volunteer basis. Searching for stones in these "cleared" areas is much easier than those that are not! I'm glad i went during the day, as the sun was just in the right position to cast a shadow to reveal the lettering that is usually tough to make out. Let me know if i can locate anyone else for you at MMC in the future!

Find A Grave Memorial# 44579022
Hi Louise,
I have a correction for you. I've just added some Moore's and Epperson's into my tree. I ran across Blanche M. Moore Epperson Barrett #44579022. On her 2nd marriage it says her middle name was Myrtle not Mabel, but I see no other document right now with a middle name. Also I'm not sure if you or someone else attached her to those parents but I have two records that show they should be #73017006 Thomas Sidney Moore and #73017046 Laura Ellen Weaver.

Thank you so much for all you do to help index these graves.

Please contact the cemetery 718-768-7300 or

Harrison E. Vreeland may have been removed to another location or he may have been interred at Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, NY.

RE: Joel Johns
Hi Louise, I have no real proof. Upon more scrutiny, I see that nobody listed in that cemetery goes back as far as the Joel Johns who was my 5th great grandfather. I have him married to Donitia Bruce. I see there are some Bruces in that cemetery as well. Sorry to have troubled you. I'll keep looking.

Loretta & Mary Monks
The onsite office does not keep records of burials earlier than 2010. I searched the old burial area for the Monks but could not find them. The onsite office advised that someone needs to go to the church on Main street and they should have the records. I did not have time to go to the church.
