Joyce, [February 2008]
    I have recently come into possession of the death certificate of my great-great-grandmother, Rachel Van Auken White.  It lists her resting
place as Austin Hill even I dont see her stone listed.
    At your convenience, could you add her?
    Rachel White, wife of David, daughter of Jacob Van Auken, 11 June 1818 to 9 August 1897.
    Thank you very much, Joyce,

I don't know who decided that Miriam Swayze was wife of Daniel Swayze, that is how misinformation is posted on the internet and family trees. People that are collecting Swayze names and not concerned that info is correct than submit to sights like LDS and family tree maker.

I'm sure it does not list on the grave stone. And to assume that Ramson was a child of Daniel and Miriam is preposterous. I would suggest that you have the correct info before posting.  Becky

Note from Joyce, Yes, Becky is unfortunately correct that people do indeed steal information from our sites and post it to public databases even thoughh warnings on the site prohibit it. They also publish our work as their own without source citations. Rules of scholarship are poorly followed in this genelaogy hobby.

    I have been looking over my notes about the Robert Park buried at Austin Hill Cemetery near Erin, NY.  On your website he is listed as Robert Park, died 1850 "A Soldier of the Revolution." He is my ancestor.  He was about 78 years old at his death, born, 1772.  A little young for the Revolutionary war.  There are actually TWO Robert Park's buried there.  The other Robert Park, 1754-1833, aged 79 years has the headstone with a soldier of the Revolutionary war on it.  At present, I do not know if he is any relation to my Park's or not.  Probably is, but don't know.  The notes I have for the "other" Robert Park were taken about 35 or so years ago.  This past September, 2003 when I was at the cemetery (Austin Hill) I could not find the "other" Robert Park headstone.  I did find two headstones lying face down, but I could not lift them to see who they were.  I feel sure that one of these is the other Robert Park, a soldier of the revolution.  I thought you might like to correct this on your cemetery listing for Austin Hill. 
    I STILL enjoy your site.  It brings back a lot of memories. Rob Stamm
