Subj:  My Grandfather Was 81 When He Passed Away.

Dear Joyce,
        My name is Lloyd Appleby and I am the grandson of the late Raymond Earl Appleby. I am writing to you so you can update your records on your website of cemetery records of Scotchtown Cemetery. My grandfather, Raymond was 81 years
old when he passed away in 1980. I didn't see that on your cemetery records page though. Could you please see that it be added to the page under the headind of age?
         And according to my father Harold, my biological grandfather, Benjamin was 40 years of age when he passed away in 1946. I would greatly appreciate it if you could make these adjustments to the age category of the Scotchtown Cemetery records.

Sincerely,Lloyd D. Appleby

Dear Joyce,

First, and foremost, thank you, and all of those who have & continue to contribute to your awesome site!

          Secondly, It may be of interest to some that my grandfather, Harold C. Bean, was the son of Charles V. and Elva D. (Blauvelt) Bean.  Furthermore, Charles’ given 1st name was actually “Vine”, and Charles was his middle name.  He reversed them unofficially because he didn’t like his given name as he felt it given in jest due to the long vine, so-to-speak, of children bore by his parents.  (Although, I do not know who his parents were and therefore cannot confirm by evidence, or otherwise, this story as passed down through the generations.  Any ideas?)

          Finally, the “e” on the end of Bean was never officially added.  Elva added it in an attempt to be disassociated with the town drunk to whom they actually were related to.  Harold, his daughter Dorothea & son Peter, were all born as Beane’s.  The “e” was dropped before my birth in 1973.

          Could you please see to it that Charles (Vine) and Elva Blauvelt are listed as the parents of my grandfather, Harold C. Bean?  Thank you so much.
Sincerely, Jennifer (Bean) Whelan
