Patience Chard Pratt
Am curious your relationship to her and her husband Samuel Pratt, they are my 7th grandparents and was surprised to see you have her memorial and that her maiden name is wrong. Thanks

RE: Forest Park Cemetery
I would contact the Town of Brunswick, Rensselaer County, NY, town office and ask for a recommendation regarding cemetery monument repair. The phone book lists a number of businesses in the Troy area, and the one that I'm most familiar with is Grethen-Cahrenger Memorials, Troy.

RE: Forest Park Cemetery
Actually, the Town of Brunswick takes very good care of Forest Park Cemetery these days. The underbrush has been cut down and the grassy sections are mowed. There have been some recent burials and I can't help but wonder if there won't be more. But, I can't see the Town taking on repair of the fallen and broken stones ~ that's going to be up to the families of the folks buried there. To me, it's a lovely, unique cemetery and if there are ghosts, they didn't bother me any.

Hull memorials
I have transferred Letta & Halbert Hull to you, and they are already linked as spouses.
To link children, the link needs to be created from the child to the parent ... so contact the person who added the Letta Smith memorial to link Letta Smith to Letta & Halbert Hull.
