Thanks so much for fixing Caleb's memorial. I had to double check my own math before I sent the request in myself. I just thought it might have been an "fat-finger" error. I really do enjoy reading your posts! ---Twig

Robert Burnham
Hi John,
I did a copy so I could blow up the stone pic of Robt. Burnham (Memorial# 77646853) and when you enlarge it it says infant sons of R.B. & L.C. TRUSCOTT, my guess the last name of Burnham was used for their middle names BUT they never survived....
Did a search on Find A Grave for R B Truscott and the closest one is in Maine....
What do you think ????

Stephen Maples Jr. Mem. #47131765
John, I think I might have made a mistake with my edit suggestion of his birth year. Some of my family records say 1721; others say 1731. It's very hard to see on the headstone if it says in his 20th year or 29th year. I would say redo his birth year for 1721. Sorry about inconveniencing you with edit. Thanks.

Amos Read
I sent an edit giving you a birth date. I wanted to let you know that this information comes from History of the Reed family in Europe and America
I have been using this book to learn about the Reads in my family tree. Amos is just a 6th great grand uncle, but interesting info in the book. The book says his wife was Mary Bennett of Scituate RI, died Jan 11, 1831. Mercy must be a nickname. Book does not give a birth date for her just a marriage date. It also list all their children. I will look around the book and see if any of the other graves can be linked as children.
Also Asa Read died 13 Aug 1814 was born 29 Jul 1748.
I found the grave for Jerusha, his second wife, but not a grave for Phebe Kinne, his first wife.
Thanks for the work you do

Thank you John for the transfer, I will now be able to link her husband, as he is buried right next to her, but I didn't see him listed. I am not sure, but I think there may be a child there also, but without a stone possibly, last name is KING.

Re: Memorial #89201005
Memorial #8920005 is apparently the son of my grandfather's first wife, Helen Patterson. The baby boy was either born dead or died shortly after his birth as did his mother, Helen. I didn't know he was named Raymond Elwyn. Can you tell me where you found that information?

Raymond Elwyn was the name of my uncle who was the first son of my grandfather's 2nd marriage to Luceille Madeleine Slee. Raymond Elwyn was born 4 years after Helen Patterson and her baby boy died.

I never knew the baby boy who died was actually given a name so would love to know where you found that information.

Thank you
Barbara Batchelor

I´m researching on Axel John Johnson, but most on his wife Sophie Goransson. I see that there is a lot of information on Axels side, but I would be very glad if I could able to contact any relativs in USA to confirm that it is "my" Sophie".
Im almost positiv, but I miss the last number of her birthday to be ready to accept this.

Anyone, please contact Kåre in Sweden:

How do I get in contact with Donna[Carr]Mooring to get the problem solved?

owen v braun
where did you get the name Hurlbut from. Most records show that her name was Mary Fisk and her father was Phineas Fisk. Could Mary Hurlbut be the wife of Daniel Brainard born aug 2,1707, married 4-25-1733. Mary was born 12-15-1709.

Hi John, There is a picture of my 4th gr.grand fathers cemetary marker from Tater Hill Cemetary, and I was wondering if there were also markers for his wife Anna and daughter and son.

I have made some amendments to her memorial. Thank you so much for making it possible for me to find where she is buried, she's my 2x great grandaunt, and linking her to her siblings is a bit of a thrill.

Amelia Cambroce #130125843
hi John-I had taken Amelia's name from the Hale listing, #705-17, page 141, on, and also for free on I don't have a photo myself, and right now my ability to log onto is biffed up, so I do know that all the stones are photographed on their website. I would have liked to see what her stone looked like, but sometimes the photo taker for the Godfrey Ed Laput can't find a gravestone, it is still listed on their website, but without a photo. So, when I can get back onto their site, (I'm a member) I will see if there is a photo of her stone. I do know that in the back left of the cem, there are about 3-4 white marble stones that are knocked over, and very deteriorated. Hers may be one of those. Irma
