Hi AlanÖ

I was hoping that you would be willing to turn over my father, William Francis White's memorial to meÖ.

I am his third daughter and would love to take care of his memorial.

Rhoda Morocco
Rhoda 'Morocco' is the correct spelling..& not 'Meroco', as.. is on her grave stone! This is the reason I couldn't find her grave. Searching since 2001! Thank you so much for taking this photo of Rhoda's grave stone! Her husband, Amos, died abt 1855..but he is not there!

Transfers and Contributions

Thank you very much for the recent transfers. It is a great help to us in our family history project to have management of these memorials as we consolidate and work on them, moving toward future management to be passed down to our descendants.

What is an even greater help, is the excellent work youíve done to create these memorials in the first place. Through careful research, clear photos, the writing of biographical information and the willingness to be responsive to other contributors and devote the many hours to this, your memorials are top notch. Iím sure that your memorials are helping a great many other people, who are not only searching for their family membersí burial places, but who also enjoy having the extra benefits of learning about their extended families, having a more detailed view of their lives than a cemetery can provide and especially, having you manage all of this for them. Many people who view your memorials will never get to these cemeteries, so your contributions to Find A Grave enable families to be informed in a way that would be impossible without your volunteer work. As a body of work, your Find A Grave memorials are also an important contribution to the histories of our people and their towns, here in Vermont.

Hi Alan,

That sounds like a good plan. I'll create the memorial now.

RE: Frank Henry Flagg
i Alan,

Thanks for the message on Find-A-Grave message of Aug 26. Apologies, Iím just seeing it now. I realize now that that Franklin Henry Flagg is not mine and Iíve been trying to figure out where he, and his wife Hortense Wells may be. Vermont death records have no burial information.

His parents, Artemus Flagg and Betsy Squires are at Richmond Village Cemetery. His grandparents, Ebenezer Flagg and Elizabeth Cutting are at Hill Cemetery.

Iíve created a new memorial for him, memorial # 154476360 without a cemetery attached.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again for writing

Aaron Allen

RE: William Hier
I just added part of the story to his memorial so that you can see it is the same guy.

RE: William Hier
It's the same guy. The newspaper made a mistake on the "H". It should have been an "R" for Royal. There are many articles about him the newspapers about him being German and yet captured in Germany during WWI. His family was from Hesson, Germany. For awhile, the newspapers say that he was missing, but he finally showed up in prison. An amazing story and I was able to give the info to his granddaughter, who had no idea!

RE: Arthur
Alan, thank you for Alice Edwards marriages & her mother's name...Alice was married 3 times & this was confusing! I found that Warren Edwards & Celestia/Helen Akey were in the Rhode Island Cemetery in Ferrisburgh. Many of my ancestors were from Bristol, VT. Do you know of the grave sites for the Crosiers & Moroccos from Bristol? I can find them, especially Amos & Rhoda Morocco b. 1792 & d. 1884.Thanks for any info!

Converses at Prospect
Good Morning Alan. We have communicated about Converses through email but, I have not spoken to you and I don't know if Prospect would be the cemetery we discussed. I will check my emails. You've done so much for so many! I had to change direction in the way I was doing things. Anything you can tell me is appreciated. It's hard to make suggestions from so far away.... It was a long shot but, it just seemed, since Jesse's wife Fanny is a Warren, it was just a Family Plot name... Warren/ Converse. I have seen so many people use a Plot Marker for a Memorial. That would explain only 5 graves listed by the Cemetery. If I think of anything, I will let you know. The only person in that Family unit who is missing is John Rollin Converse, born 1874. I have no death date for him and no guarantee he stayed in that area. Will start checking the census too. I only have 1 Warren Converse, not associated with this group.

Thank you so much for all you have done!

RE: Florence Wisell
You're welcome Alan. If you're ever in the area and want to visit the cemetery again, Florence and her family are located in the section next to the chapel. In the middle between the 2 roads, about half way down next to a small tree.

Memorial # 115969843/ Prospect Cem
Hi Alan!
Am trying to connect to said memorial for Warren Converse. The dates Correspond to Frances "Fanny", wife of Jesse Grandey Converse who already has a memorial with the excepton that 1901 and1910 are inverted. I will use the edits for any additional info I have however, you wrote this was the first Converse Burial in Prospect. Was there a list of some sort you followed and if so, could I please get a copy? for my family tree and of course, you will get credit. My tree is not online as I am not done working on it. I am hoping it is just a Family Marker that was first placed instead of a burial. There was a son born to Jesse and Fanny, named John Rollin (born 1874)after his uncle who died in the Petersburg Battle during the Civil war.

Thank you!

Hello Alan, First of all thank you so much for all of the information you have posted regarding the Porters. I descend from Lovina Powers Porter and Oliver Alford. I am going to Vermont, Maine, UPstate NY and New Hampshire on vacation Sept 1 ,2015. I will be going to Ferrisburg and Charlestown. Can you tell me how to get to the cemetery and any other "land marks" of the Porters? Thanks again,Debra McKrill

Anna Sterling Boardman Memorial #116745405
Per your request to use the "edit" tab to make corrections, I have updated the info for Anna Sterling Boardman Memorial #116745405, to the best of my ability. Please know that the "Anna S." on the tombstone of Royal Hyman Boardman Memorial #116744670, is not his daughter, but rather his 2nd wife, Anna Salome Schmidt, born 6 MAR 1894 in Newark, Wayne, New York, USA. They were married in New Hampshire in 1946.
You are correct that the daughter of Cora (Memorial# 116744797) and Royal (memorial #116744670) is Anna Sterling Boardman who was born in Chesaw, Okanogan, Washington, USA and married Gordon Dunham in 1931. However, her actual date of birth was 16 JUN 1908 and her date of death was 11 NOV 1994 in Pittsfield, Berkshire, Massachusetts, USA. At this time, I do not know where Anna and her husband Gordon are buried.
Although I was able to correct the name, dates of birth and death and the relationship status of Memorial #116745405, I am not able to edit the comments that were placed in her memorial.
I thank you for all of the efforts you have taken to post pictures of headstones and set-up memorials for all of the relatives out there who are links to our past :)
Most Appreciatively,
