RE: Holryd photos
It was the best I could do, given the lack of headstones :)

Hopestill York Crary
Hi Karyn,

I saw your Find A Grave memorial for Hopestill York Crary in the Avery Stoddard cemetery in Ledyard, CT. I believe that it is more likely that she is buried in the Avery cemetery in Preston with her family members.

She is not listed in the Ledyard Historical Society's "Historic Cemetery Inscriptions" or the Charles Hale Collection for the Avery-Stoddard cemetery. Hale does not mention her at all so it is quite possible that she was buried without a stone.

Ancestry Tree
Karyn, I have been going through your Ancestry "Van Kainen family tree", this afternoon. I have a question on page
Thomas Morgan 1482-1538 & Elizabeth Vaughan 1486-?. You have Elizabeth's death as 1508 and her marriage as 1530. I think these dates are probably reversed, as she would have married after her death?? First son was born in 1508.

Going through your tree we have much of the same data, a few dates and places are off a bit.

Instead of posting here on Find a Grave perhaps we can do this through email? My email is Since we are obviously related I can see where we might just have more than a few messaging to each other ~laughs~

RE: Memorial 18375847 Dorothy (Morgan) WITTER
Hi Karyn, My Ancestry Tree is located:
Not all of the families have been uploaded to the Ancestry Hurd Family Tree. The above link is the start of my Witter line. Any corrections or differences, please let me know. I have tried to get all my sources uploaded but it was hit or miss. LOL I had to restart my family tree as the Legacy family tree software I was using for my Genealogy Software became corrupted. I have since switched to RootsMagic and am slowly getting use to it. I am also using Family Tree Maker with the syncing to Ancestry Family Tree. I like it, but RootsMagic has many more features. But it is hard to keep 2 different software updated. I put my direct line up on Ancestry, and have been slowly adding the extended family.

I would be very interested in seeing your Ancestry Family Tree.

Very exciting to find a new cousin!

Memorial 18375847 Dorothy (Morgan) WITTER
Hi Karyn, First thank you so much for posting my GGGGGGGGGGGG Great GrandMother Dorothy (Morgan) WITTER. [Memorial #18375847}. It is greatly appreciated.
I was wondering if her headstone actually has her last name as WITTER as she married 2nd [after death of Deacon Ebenezer WITTER] to Daniel BREWSTER.
I am just curious as I can not read the photos of the headstone. You might not know as you did not add any of the photos added to her Memorial.
Thank you for your hard work!

Johnathan Layton
There is a picture attached to Priscilla Long Layton that is of a Johnathan Layton that died in 1831. You show her husband Johnathan 1780-1845. I am confused about this picture. The Bull took the picture and states that no picture of Priscilla is in the Pilesgrove Methodist Episcopal Cemetery but loaded this picture to your memorial. If this is her husband he was 73 years old and would have been born in 1758 and died in 1831. You seem very knowledgeable about this line and I would like your input. Thanks Jennie

Meade cemetery
I noticed that you photographed Meade Cemetery. I go through the newspaper archive for the county library and transcribe the old obits and notices. I clip them and put them on find a grave so they will be available for ancestors. I have one for a George Shimrock who lived on the Meade - Freesoil border. Might he be buried there? Sandi

George Bateman Stout
Hi Karyn,
I see you have contributed a memorial for George Bateman Stout. The is no head stone photo for this memorial.

George Bateman Stout's death certificate indicates that he was buried in Beatrice, Gage Co., NE. Atkinson Funeral home in Archie, MO were the undertakers. Is it possible that somehow over time someone has changed another George B. Stout to George Bateman Stout? There are other George B. Stout's from the area; but I have never seen another George Bateman Stout in the 30 years that I have been researching this family.

I concerned about missinformation. Can you help me sort this out. Thank you for being a contributor.

Ebenezer Witter
Hi Karen:
When I recently checked my entry for my 5th great-grandfather, Ebenezer Witter at the Middle Farms Cemetery in Westfield, MA, I noticed that you had entered a duplicate site. I would like to invite you to include your information on my site, which was entered in 2004, (#9535379), and delete the duplicate. It would be great to connect both of our families in one place.
