Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings!

A Find-a-Graver since the site's origins as the hit for notable graves--not genealogy--I do "Famous" bios, and photograph/write about old gravestones, cemeteries, and the people interred within for the general reader. Will cheerfully answer queries, make corrections, add data to the "Family Links" section, and include other relevant info ASAP. Please no requests to insert multiple hyperlinks in the narrative part of the bio or to transfer pre-1900 burials. Find-a-Grave members can always include any grave listed on the website in an ancestral or other type of grouping by using the "Virtual Cemetery" feature. If you wish to quote me or use my photos, please contact me; attribution for written pieces is "by Nikita Barlow, for Findagrave", and for photographs, "Photo by Nikita Barlow". Thanks for your cooperation, and happy graving!

Samuel Lindsley Part II
I wanted to see if you could also change the birth and death dates on your memorial. Your Samuel was born abt 1760 (no citation as to exact date). The current birth date you have is for the other Samuel Lindsley (my ancestor). The death date for your Samuel needs to be changed to Jun 18, 1820 based on his probate will and he died in Orange, Essex County, NJ. Again, the death date and place currently listed for my Samuel. Please let me know if you have any questions, I do prefer using email as I can send you documents with proof and also can help you write a bio for this Samuel who incidently is my 1st cousin 7x removed. thanking you in advance, Phil

Samuel Lindsley
Nikita, there is considerable confusion on Samuel. There are 2 Samuel Lindsley's for this birth/death and revolutionary war dates. This Samuel Marker is for the one who is from Essex County and died 18 Jun 1820. The other is my 4th ggrandfather who died in 1805 in Lindley, NY and he was from Morris County, NJ. Can you edit the bio of your Find A Grave marker for Samuel to remove the first several sentences including he marriage to Lois Bradley. Your Samuel married Phebe Williams. I do have proof of this if you want to discuss further. My email is: many thanks, Phil Cirullii

RE: Samuel Lindsley #6621716
There is a gravestone with the name "Samuel Lindsley" in the Colonel Lindsley Burying Ground (Lindley, Steuben County, NY. Samuel's Find A Grave Memorial# 50314155 has two photos of that gravestone, one a close-up where you can read the inscription. Painted Hills Genealogical Society's Burying Ground survey can be found here:
For Samuel, they have:
LINDSLEY, Samuel, Major , Spouse of Lois Bradley , Born 6 Sep 1760 , Died 1 May 1805 Revolutionary War Officer, s/o Lt. Col. Eleaser & Mary Miller

My final request was to copy and paste the following on #6621716 ...

Samuel Lindsley is buried in Col. Lindsley Burying Ground; Lindley, Steuben County, NY.

Thank you,
Buddy Leech

Mount Pleasant Cemetery
I am looking for a transcription of graves or someone who can do research at the cemetery. I have tried contacting the office to find if they keep records on burials. I believe most of the members of our family are buried there - Murdoch family. I have found some and they did live in Elizabethtown around 1820 -1840 and later. Thank you for any input you can give me. Janice

RE: Gen. Cornelius W. Mandeville
Wrong person- I am not doing anything with this family that requires a picture- I wrote you about the Skladar-Northcote families.

I see you contributed a picture of her headstone. Do you have any other information about her? Any children, etc.

RE: Unknown Child #8574737
Hi Nicki

I think I can see what has happened. The cupid image was originally downloaded and used by myself on my family tree, where it was used to denote the death of a child. There, someone else downloaded it into their own pictures file, as is permitted, from where I assume it was uploaded to the memorial page of an African American child. It seems that my email address was still attached to show from where it originated.

At least I assume this is what happened. I had not looked at the Find A Grave website for a long time, until I received your first email, and I have absolutely no idea how to upload my own picture onto the site!

With best wishes

RE: Unknown Child #8574737
Hi Nikita

Thank you for your recent message, which leaves me puzzled. I have not made any contribution to the memorial page of an unknown child, and have no idea how my email came to be connected with this.
How did you get the information that it came from me? I would be grateful if you could advise as I would not like to think my account has been compromised.

With kind regards.

RE: Jamie Riggle
Obviously SHE created a friends list, because your name is on it. That's where I got it from. Thanks anyway.
