You have a great picture of an "Elegy" on Rhoda's grave site. As Rhoda is my 5th great grandmother, I would love to know the source of the "Elegy" and perhaps get a better copy. I will of course search around, but if you want to short circuit my work, I would be grateful. Thank you in advance.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 10738077
You are welcome. Sometimes headstones are wrong so wanted to make sure that you hadn't found something that showed the headstone was or wasn't right.

Find A Grave Memorial# 10738077
Did you check to see what the correct date of death was? The headstone says 1896 and you put 1893.

RE: Benjamin Jones III
I am still wondering about the information on my ancestor, Benjamin Jones III. I received the following note regarding him: RE: Benjamin Jones III
Thanks. You had best communicate with Judith. All the information was supplied by her. I took over the memorial with all the info since Benjamin is my wife's direct ancestor.
Added by Ray Malenfant on Nov 17, 2015 12:15 PM

So, I still don't have an answer. He is currently handling that memorial, but he didn't put the information in. That is what I am wanting to understand, is the difference if what I have and the information that you have put in came from.

Thanks, Jane

RE: Backus
Thanks Judith--I finally found the source he got that from BUT I found LOTS of info that contradicts that. William Backus was in Saybrook in 1637 and married 2nd wife in 1659 in CT...sorry I did not realize you would not get memorial number with that type of posting--have no experience with it--most folks have the emails go through Find A Grave and then it includes the memorial #. I just thought the info was curious, as I was having trouble finding documentation about the birth of the children and later found MOST references for most the kids say B in Saybrook--BUT as with all those older folks there are a LOT of contradictions-Wm Backus married 2nd wife MUCH later--1659-1661 and records of marriage exist on for that.

In this memorial you state

Thomas' father was a master cutler and was buried at Sheffield on Feb. 12, 1648/9 and his youngest sister Mary was buried at Sheffield on June 16, 1651. At what time his mother remarried to William Backus (called Backhouse at Sheffield), also a master cutler at Sheffield, is not of record. But, Thomas, his mother Anne and stepfather William Backus, along with at least five Backus step-siblings, arrived at Saybrook, Conn. by the mid-1650s.

I have found conflicting sources x 2 that says William Backus was in Saybrook, CT in 1837, and several marriage records that show his marriage to Anna Fenton about 1659-1661.

Can you tell me what source you found the info about Wm Backus Sr coming over with his 2nd wife and 5 of his children. I am seeing conflicting info BUT just in I am not sure I can depend on them. It sounds like perhaps you actually found a record of the voyage and the passengers?

I would appreciate any guidance you can give me in getting to the truth about Wm Backus and his children by his first wife.

He is my 10 x GGF and his daughter Lydia, B in 1837 my 9 x the dates of when they were where is pretty crucial to me. Thank you

Married to Elizabeth Gibbs. Would like to know where you got the names of their children. According to a document: BENJAMIN JONES, the third, son of Benjamin Jones the second, and his wife Elizabeth, was born in Somers, Conn., in the year of 1710. Benjamin Jones, the third, and Elizabeth, his wife, were published and married Aug. 16th, 1735. Elizabeth, his wife, was born in 1718; there was born to and this union five children, namely: Hannah, born 1736, at Somers, Conn., married David Price in 1759; John, born 1738, at Somers, Conn., married Abigail Cheney Dec. 9th, 1762; Jesse, born Nov. 20th, 1739, at Somers, Conn.; Benjamin, born Dec. 26th, 1741, at Somers, Con11.; Nathan, born 1744, at Somers, Conn. July 5th, 1756, there were laid out to Benjamin Jones, of Somers, Conn., 57 acres of land by land grant, first laid out to his grandfather, Benjamin Jones, the first. Benjamin Jones died Oct. 13th, 1794, age 84 years. Elizabeth, his wife, died June 28th, 1800, 82 years of age..

South Street Cemetery, Coventry, CT
I am researching Orson Waldo Memorial #1143119. You have the South Street Cemetery listed. I understand the Coventry Town Council met in Dec. 2011 and changed the name of the cemetery to Old South Burying Ground. However, I have not been able to find out if the sign at the cemetery has been changed. If not, the memorial should stay unchanged, but if so I wondered if you would update the memorial to show his gravestone is at the Old South Burying Ground. Thank you for your time. Volunteers like you help so much when we live so far away.

Mary Hewit Palmer 11489861
Hello Judith,
I am curious about Mary Palmer's maiden name being listed as "Hewit". Other than her memorial on Find a Grave I haven't been able to find any evidence that she was a Hewit, and thought you may be able to shed light on that. I would love to know anything you may have in regard to her Hewit name. My research seems to indicate her maiden name was Palmer, marrying a cousin, which would make her Mary Palmer Palmer. Respectfully and thank you, Lynn

There is a duplicate grave for this person that was added to the same cemetery in 2008. Perhaps the two can be merged. The duplicate is #28326110 that was created in 2008. Thanks.

Re: Elisha Hamilton and Mary (Smith) Hamilton
Hi Judith.

I have done quite a bit of research on this line and there is no connection to the Mayflower anywhere in sight. I think it would be misleading to many if you didn't, at a minimum, acknowledge that this Mayflower connection is unconfirmed if not remove that reference entirely.

Not trying to be troublesome, just trying to support the notion of accuracy for those who might otherwise be led astray and waste countless hours of research on unchallenged claims.

Thanks for hearing my point of view.
