I visited there toward the end of the summer in 1998, and some of the
stones have things written lower down below the grass line, like Bible
verses, etc. but Derick VanSchoonhoven didn't transcribe those, and I
didn't have time when I was there. Even more of the stones have been
broken down, and you'd know why if you saw what they use to do mowing
around the stones with!
-from Joy, granddaughter to Annie Frances (VanSchoonhoven) Hobbs,
SEARCHING for a newspaper article or similar proof about a marriage of a
James VanSchoonhoven to an Annie Frances Stevenson/Stephenson circa
1871-1877 in the environs of Albany, NY. Clues available: His father
was an elder in the Second Street Presbyterian Church, His
half-brother, Rev. Lansing VanSchoonhoven was a pastor somewhere in
the area. Annie Frances Stevenson had been brought when aged 3 (born
Sept 25 1852, came to this country from England circa 1855) by a Rev.
and Mrs. Wentworth, who presumeably ministered in a local church as
well. Even Annie's death certificate does not reveal that she had
gained any knowledge of whom her real parents were. Anybody in the
Albany/Troy/Waterford area want to help look?
