Surnames on stones: Arnold, Petrie, Jencks, Story, & Light headstone

Living in California can be a challenge for me to photograph my ancestors headstones when I discover they are buried outside the golden state. Unless a willing family member or volunteer is passing through or nearby the ancestors final resting place. Many of our Arnold relatives are laid to rest in the Church Street Cemetery, Little Falls, NY confirmed by burial records published online at the Little Falls Museum website and other sources.

Thanks to my cousin's husband Al, while combing the Church Street Cemetery in Little Falls July 29, 2004 for my gggg grandparents Edward Arnold Sr. & Mary Phetteplace, their son Edward Arnold Jr. & Christina McChesney, and Robert & Lany Margaret (Hilts) Arnold, Al photographed these 9 Arnold headstones. At this time it remains unknown if the following Arnold's photographed here are related to our own family. However they might be of help to someone else.

As our luck would have it Edward Arnold Sr's was found but not legible when photographed. Robert & Lany Margaret Arnold's headstone was not located where they should be as well as others, and it's possible they might not have a grave marker.

If anyone determines the following Arnold families and/or branches named on the old headstones are related to my own Arnold family mentioned above please let us know.

Related pioneer families of Herkimer & Montgomery counties we are researching:

Arnold, Polly Casler & George Hilts, John Mansfield & Lany Loucks, Charles Pauth & Belle/Asabella Mansfield.

Thank you to the many volunteers and site coordinators who contribute to this site.

Warm Southern Wind
Blow Softly Here

Good Night, Dear Heart,
