RE: Robert Coit # 84105708
I wonder if Nancy was a nickname for Anne? I did see that in the records, but everything else I've seen, bios etc., gave her name as Anne, not only Anne but with that middle name of Borradil, spelled all over the board. Her grandmother was Borradil Denison Latimer.

Isn't it fun trying to keep these people straight?

Thanks Irma,

Hi Irma,

I'm wondering if you will please transfer the 4 memorials to me? I have requested it a couple times but i don't hear back from you :(

Atwood Gravesite pictures
Thank you for the pictures of the grave sites of Orlo and Maria J Atwood in Cedar Grove Cemetery and for adding the memorial and picture for their daughter, May Josephine. Orlo and Maria are my great grandparents and my grandmother was named after May Josephine.

William Henry Fuller
Hi Irma, I noticed the marker for William Henry Fuller and family. There is a notation about a possible connection to Truman Fuller in Tater Hill Cemetary. He is my 2nd great grand fathers brother. And yes, Truman Fuller born in 1801 was their father. Memorial #46933624. Thank you for all you do. I wish I was closer to Conneciut. I would love to help, but I am in Florida.
I have a great grand father buried in an unmarked grave in Col. Ledyard Cemetary. Do you know if anyone keeps records from those graves?
He died in the 1890's. Thank you. Connie Heskett

Children of David Post & Maria Urquhart Post
The memorials I would like to manage are:

John U. Post 69876529
M. Lucretia Post 69876661
J. Rawson Post 69876511
Isabella S. Post 69876495

They are all great aunts & uncles, siblings of my great-great grandfather Lewis Walter Post. They never married or had children so there will be no links other than what they have now.

RE: Emma Hart Urquhart #74900485
Yes, you're right. There's a William W. Urquhart and his wife Emma Hart, and then their son William W. Urquhart and daughter Emma Kate Urquhart. I thought there was a spousal link from the brother to the sister.

Frederick G. Loomis
Thank you for finding and photographing the grave of my great-grandfather Frederick Granger Loomis. My relatives and I have been looking for him for years. He died at a young age of a lung infection, which we suspect that he contracted at work. He worked at the piano factory in Ivoryton, where the air was heavy with dust from manufacturing.

Thank you so very much for finding him!

The date for Phillip Hill's birthdate was estimated based on what is on his headstone.

The Mary Dibble Hill Stannard I have listed, I believe is the right Mary. I got the exact birthdate from other trees. I believe the date of 1840 on her headstone is probably a few months off. The actual year was 1839, the headstone date was approximate.
In addition, my Mary Ann Dibble Hill Stannard is buried next to Albert Hill, her 1st husband, according to the "Connecticut Hale Cemetery Inscriptions" for Lower Cemetery.

I hope the above will allow you to accept my edits.

Thanks for your time.

I don't remember where I got the Oct 21. Can you just leave it 1792 ?.

I'll go ahead and make the correction.
I can transfer management if Susan is your relative.
If so, just make a request through Find a Grave.

Thank you for the updates to the Rogers grave markers. Amos was a troubled man. I'm still looking for his daughter who married into the Bagby family.

I admire your love for the old cemeteries. So much information is being lost in all the cemeteries I visit and it's such a feeling of dishonor to see them in their state.

Prof. Colegrove's mom, Eliza
Yes, I tried 'some' to find her but just gave up. My subscription to ancestry ran out...hadn't been able to log on for 6 mos..they didn't help me. But I miss it. They're tying up everything free on the 'net' so guess we'll all have to pay to get even the public records. I couldn't even log on to the SSDI link!!

Wish I could help, but I have no idea where Eliza is bur.

RE: Honour Hale 78714637
Irma - Thanks, my mistake. I should have noticed the dates were wrong for her to be their daughter. Interestingly D. Jacobus in Hale, House and Related Families, refers to Onner as Honor and yet he notes he read the gravestone so not sure why he called her Honor since the picture clearly shows Onner. (Turns out Onner was Honour's aunt since Honour's mother, Ruth (wife of David) was the daughter of Daniel and Ruth (Hale) Hale.) Thanks for all the other changes.

'old chimney stacks'
irma, i see you do intensive research and support for east haddam. you probably are aware of the book, 'old chimney stacks' which spotlights old families of east haddam. i inherited my dad's copy given to him by his gt uncle guy b. vroom. i gave it to my local FHC. if i remember right, the reads/williamses aren't in the book. but i'll try to get down there and check it again.
on another related note, a study of george read, founder of deep river, industrialist, abolitionist, and son of temperance and cornelius, reveals that key partners in his ivory cutting business were named williams and dickinson (temperance's mother's surname). thanks again

temperance williams
irma, thanks for all your considerate efforts. you make nice pages.
i see you transferred management of the williams sites to me. this is fine. thank you.
info on temperance's ancestry came during a series of phone calls about the year 2000 with dr. karl stofko, east haddam town historian and an old family friend, who know my late brother ros vroom davis in youth in middlesex county in the '50s/60s. i asked him directly who temperance's parents were. his answer was 'i dont know but i do know who does' and he called a mr. ted willeford. the aging willeford, now retired, referred him to a work he had published on the net. in my follow-up call soon after, stofko seemed to consider willeford a valid source. to my knowledge stofko continues, and is very approachable and happy to impart his knowledge to callers. the question of cornelius' burial site may be a good one for him. i'll try and contact him. meanwhile i'm moving cornelius to the 'unknown cemetery' based on your information.
thanks again and best always,
