RE: Suggestion Needed
Not too many death certificates are wrong, so I wouldn't call it a common problem. What was the person's name and when and where did they die? I can dig around in the old newspapers and see if I can find anything. I did have one cousin who died in Albany and was buried in Springfield, Mass. So I went to Springfield but couldn't find her. But their records said she was dis-interred and moved to a cemetery about 35 minutes from where I live. But the original cemetery had a record of her, including where she'd gone.

Other than that, there should be a burial permit in the town he/she was buried in, but since it was 1911, it's a crap shoot. And of course, you need to know the town. Do you know what religion the person was? Where they lived when they died? If so, let me know.

But I wouldn't count on finding them. If you do find them, consider it dumb blind luck

Send me what info you have and I'll look in the newspapers.

RE: Transfers
FYI, I was just going back through my messages and reread your remark on contacting Nine Partners cemetery. The only stone I actually found in Nine Partners was Victoria Gatewood. In fact, she's the reason I tracked the family. I'm distantly related to some of the bazillion Duncans buried in Nine Partners and thought she might be part of that family. But they're two different families, one from Dutchess county since the 1700's, the other from Virginia in the 1800's. Victoria's stone is by itself, so if she's buried in a family plot, it's possible there's no other stones for the family in the cemetery. Not, unfortunately, an unusual thing with the older families. Either the stones were never there, or they've fallen under the ground.

If you ever go to either Nine Partners or Evergreen, be sure to contact them first for locations of the graves, and try to set up an appointment to meet someone who knows where the graves are. Both are old cemeteries, and there's no rows until you get the recent, late 20th century burials. The plots are everywhere, and there's no section markers in either cemetery, so even if you have a section and plot number, it's useless when trying to find a grave. You could walk Evergreen for a week and not find who you're looking for. And since there's no rows, you may well re-walk it without knowing you're covering the same ground. I've never talked to anyone at Nine Partners, but the guy at Evergreen is really nice, and will take you right out to where the plot is if you contact him and let him know you're coming.

And sometimes their records say if there's a stone or not. Just thought I'd pass this info on to you. Happy hunting

Transferred Samuel to you. Your welcome for entering them. Having you find them makes my day. Don't hesitate to ask for anyone else if you want them.

Happy genealogical hunting

RE: Transfers
Lord I love it when people find their families. It's why I do this.

I transferred all your requests except one. You asked for Sam Johnson 7511729, buried Nine Partners. I couldn't find him. That number connects to another person, and when I displayed the Johnsons in Nine Partners, he wasn't there. If you can send me the correct number, I'll be happy to transfer him over too.

Also, if I missed anyone else, let me know

If there's anyone else you want, let me know. I'm not fussy about how close your relationship is. I'm not related at all, so any relationship is closer than me.

So very glad you found them

Gatewood transfers
The best way to request a transfer of memorial is to go to the memorial - use the edit button on the top and request the transfer from there -it saves me having to search for them as I have a lot of them. Also it gives your member number in the message and makes it easier to do the transfer. Future reference. I will do this one the hard way.

RE: photos
I see you just joined findagrave.If you are a direct descendant you can request a transfer of the memorial and the person who added it can transfer it to you. This allows you the ability to change any information on the person, otherwise you would have to ask the person who added the memorial to make changes for you. I will transfer the memorial to you and you will now manage your first memorial!
