Hi! When I discovered Find-A-Grave, I thought it was fantastic! What a great way to preserve history and help other genealogists! I immediately began photographing local cemeteries as a way to give back to others who have helped me and shared information. I love doing it and feel like I am contributing to preserving some of these really old headstones before they become so weathered and decayed that they are illegible. To each their own, but I do not believe I "own" the photographs I take nor do I feel I have a copyright on them! I just don't get that philosophy, but, like I said, everyone has their own thoughts on why they contribute to FAG. I do not volunteer to do this for "credit" in any form—I am doing it to help other genealogists as they search for their ancestor's final resting places. It is always absolutely fine with me if you use any and all photos I have taken for your ancestry.com trees or personal family trees and you do not need to give any credits to me. It has always been my idea that if we, as genealogists, do not share our discoveries and work as one big family, we are just making it harder to complete our own personal history books. As far as transfers, if you are a relative of any degree or just someone "special" to the deceased, I will gladly transfer unless they are also my own relative. I love everything historical and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful gift to us wanting to preserve history. Happy hunting! --Vickie|

Thank you for photographing the funeral home marker for Rolla Chittenden. Too bad no gravestone has been placed at his grave.

Where did you get the info that he died in Sycamore? My work indicates it was in Cortland. Do you have verification for this? Thanks.

|Anita Dennis||Death date of Edward Gilchrist|
The obituary, published June 10 1904, was seemingly written at different times, perhaps a week apart.
“died….Thursday evening of last week” That would be June 2, 1904.
“was taken sick last Monday….Yesterday morning he sank into a coma….His aged father….did not know….until after he had come in from his rounds yesterday afternoon". All these imply he died June 9.
"The funeral services will be at 2 o’clock tomorrow afternoon." So, June 11???
…"interment was made in the Elmwood cemetery Saturday afternoon." So, June 4??? The rest of that paragraph is also in the past tense, so the funeral and burial had already taken place when the obituary was published June 10.
Result: I’m going with a death date of June 2 unless you have proof to the contrary.
|Ruth Armstrong Pohl||Esther Stoelzing|
Thank you so much for sending this obit. Ken did not have it in his Stoelzing material. Little Esther was a 'cousin' of Ken's mother.
I appreciate your kindness.
