Re: Boughton transfers
Hi Gary,

You're most welcome! These are pictures I took before winter, "stocking up" until I could get out there again -- although with the way it's been so far, I could get out there now just fine!

Hope you're doing well.

Hi Gary,
Writing to let you know I just added more Boughtons to Oakwood. I'm not sure if you're related to these Boughtons, but please let me know if you'd like them transferred to you.

Beardsley/Beardslee Family Genealogy
RE: Memorials# 10861920, 41695076, 41695077 & 10861923
I sent a request in to Find A Grave ministration to merge all five parts into one cemetery. Based on the research I did it seems evident that while some continue to use the old names of the parts, they are in fact just one cemetery. If you look at the cemetery on Google Map (satellite view is best) it is very obvious there is just one large cemetery, bounded by three roads making a triangular plot.

I understand the point you are making, but I don't think it is valid when you examine the cemetery in any depth. If you enter any of the named gates, some of which still have the old signs, there is nothing that separates any of the old parts from one another . . . no fences, walls or other inner boundary items.

Rather than having duplicate memorials (which I hope Find A Grave will resolve by merging the cemetery parts), I think it would be best to indicate within the bio of the original memorial that this cemetery is known by any of it's old names, and then remove the duplicates. This complies with the policy of Find A Grave about avoiding duplicates.

I found a number of memorials with this same issue, and a few other cemeteries made up of multiple old parts that also should be merged and have been submitting edit requests to the managers and merge requests to Find A Grave. It seems Connecticut has been combining old cemeteries into one larger one for quite a while.

James Ethridge

I really screwed up on this one.

He married (2) Rachael Thompson.
(Nareen Lake)

Family links:
Mercy Merwin Todd (1767 - 1806)*

I read only one wife not two. That is where the 'Lake' came from.

When I clicked on the line to Find A Grave I got "George C. Boughton" - did he have something to do with Emma? And what was Emma's last name?

Henry Rutgers Marshall
Good morning, Gary,

I called NY's Woodlawn Cemetery. They do not have Mr. Marshall, nor does it say he was moved. Apparently the obituary had incorrect information. Both father and son are buried in South Cemetery. Sorry for the confusion, all the information I found on him stated that he was buried in NY as well.

Henry Rutgers Marshall
Hi again,

Obviously its late and my brain isn't working....I got the cemeteries and states mixed up. Henry is actually buried in New York according to his obit. I did not find a separate memorial for his wife, so I can't confirm where she is at, although since both Henry's stone and his wife's are memorial stones, I would guess that she is buried in New York with him.

Sorry for the mistake, its late here in Arizona :)

Hi Gary,

I was doing research on this gentleman who was an architect and came across two burials for him on Findagrave, with two death dates. I did find his obituary from the New York Times which does say he was buried in Connecticut at Woodlawn, as the other volunteer has, but interestingly enough, his obituary reads that he died on the 3rd and his memorial stone that you have the great photo of has the 2nd. Of course, the paper could most certainly be wrong as to his time of death as he died at the hospital and word may not have gotten out until the 3rd. Anyhow, I didn't know if you wanted to add the note that this is a memorial stone and not where he is actually buried or not. Your photos are lovely! Thanks for the information!

Peter and Polly Hurd
Dear Mr. Boughton,
Thank you for all the work you have done on the Hurd burials in Lands End Cemetery. Peter and Polly Hurd are my 3d great grandparents. My 2d great grandfather, Stiles Hurd (1817-1891), is buried in Union Cemetery in Stratford, CT. I've submitted a link to Peter and Polly as his parents; I presume this will automatically link him to all those babies buried in Newtown.

Their respective years are Harriett Smith (1790-1838) and Harriett Williams (1804-1899). If you'd like any other information/support I'd be happy to share further details.

Two Harrietts
Hi. I noticed some photos you took of a marker for Harriet SMITH Ford (and that you added to memorial 68911058 which you created) were also added to a memorial for Harriet WILLIAMS Ford (29025181). The fact that Stephen Baldwin Ford has two wives named Harriett has caused a bit of confusion. The marker is for Harriett SMITH Ford (68911058). I have been unable to locate a burial for Harriett WILLIAMS Ford (SBF's second wife). I thought you would want to know. Thanks for all you have contributed to findagrave.
