Some of the information is incorrect. My father was the son of Lawrence Harold Rigney (also buried at McCrays), not Allen Rigney. Also, Christina Rigney Ellis is not his sister. He has two additional siblings:
Jack Rigney
Maurice Jack Friddle

Both are half siblings.

Congdon Family
I am also descended from James Congdon. James b. 3-28-1741 d. 2-16-1829. He died in Wallingford, Vt while visiting his son Peleg. James was the son of William in this same cemetery. William was the son of Benjamin buried in Congdon Hill Cemetery, Washington Ct. R. I. along with his grandfather Benjamin.His great grandfather John came to America in 1638 and d.about 1646. James other marker in Sugar Hill Cem in Wallingford has a Son's of Amer. Rev plaque on it.James made Lieutenant in 1777. He was town Sargeant of North Kingstown 25 years and member of RI Ligislature 35 years. In 1790 joined the soc. for the Abolition of Slayery. His children were:Rachel 1768, Henry 1770, Ruth 1772, Hanna 1774, Yelverton 1775, Francis 1777, James Hedley 1779, Peleg 1782, Lydia 1784, William 1787 and George 1789.
Peleg married Selinda Barrows(daughter of Philbrook and Cylinda Bucklin Barrows) of Wallingford Vt. Peleg died in Woonsocket in 1861 and Selinda died in providence 1776, I can't find their graves. Their daughter Selinda Elizabeth m. Esaias Hall of Wallingford and are buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Wilmington IL, her marker says Elizabeth S. Hall.

Alexander (P) McKay
Hi, I found the site for this McKay with your photo. This is my Scottih ancestors Alexander being one of the sons of the first who came from Paisley c.1840. The lot to the right of this monument is for the Mills family. Jean Dove McKay m William T Mills. They were my 2nd great grandparents. Grace , Dalton (Mills) Johnson their daughter m William A Johnson , my grandfather who is also on the large Mills monument but buried on the other side of the cemetery with his 2nd wife who was a McKay, cousin to his first wife. My parents and 2 brothers are on the Mills lot .
My question is where did the Alexander get the P in his middle name (not on the monument) Do you know what the P stands for? I have some old papers with names of the McKay family since they came to U.S. I believe Letitia was the wife of an Alexander as well, her last name was Sabiston. While there is a monument for her on the McKay/mills lot I think it was placed there by her son Robert but she and her husband died in Scotland. If you would like other info and dates I can provide more .My interest is where the P came from on the Find A Grave site. Respond to me at if you know. SNC

Ernest Cairo at St Joseph's
FYI - There is a Marianne C Cairo next to Ernest at St Joseph's. The birth year is 1930, but no death year is listed. I did not take the picture due to the lack of a death year.

congdon/essex lot
Hi, I just wanted to let you know I went to take the pictures you requested at the warwick historical cemetery #54 (congdon/essex lot) and they weren't there. I took a picture of every grave marker in the lot though and some were half sunken into the ground. They were made of slate I believe and there were no visible markings left. If you want I could send you the pics anyway, seeing as they were burried in the late 1800's those could possibly be thier's. Sorry I couln't be more help. ~Lynn

RE: Saveria Cairo
Yes, she is. There is also a Frank buried there as well. I have pictures of their names as well and was planning on entering memorials for them to attach the photos to but just haven't gotten around to doing it yet. If you care to create their memorials, I can just attach the photos to them. I have Louis's dates as being Dec 27, 1885-Feb 5, 1949 and Frank as Apr 17, 1884-Aug 30, 1952.

Teresa K
Joan Matteson
When adding the picture for Issac Matteson I searched the cemetery listing for Joan and found one is already made for her they just have the name spelled with an extra S. I have attached her grave photo to her memorial and asked the owner of the memorial to link her to her husbands memorial and remove one of the S's from her name.

Meyer - Crown Hill
I am going to post the photos for Emma and Edward Meyer, but I wanted you to be aware that in their plot (and they share the same headstone) are also Reick, Graff, and Paetz. I am posting their photos also.

That's fine about reinstating the photo requests. Before I head out to any cemetery, I try to get a heads-up from the cemetery folks on plots, locations, etc. This cemetery has 46 requests, and so the cemetery office mailed me a detailed reply. I expect to be at this cemetery in the next two weeks and so I will be on the lookout for the Whipple's, and I will make the office aware of the relocation report.

I'll keep you posted. It certainly would not be the first time I have found stones that the cemetery wasn't aware of.

Many thanks,
Dave McCaffrey

RE: College Hill Cemetery Lebanon IL
If you update your photo request with the addition I will do my best to get over to Lebanon and look for the headstone.

The request list for this cemetery is long and next to no indication of where to begin searching. So if I can get a few more people to update their requests with some sort of starting point I will have a more productive visit to the cemetery.

When the weather cools off I don't mind wandering around so much. :)

Re: Lillian and Leroy Peters
I am not related to anyone in the Vineland cemetery and have no further information on any of them. I'd be glad to transfer memorials to you if you'd like or I can put your comments on Lillian in the Bio section of her memorial. Please let me know what you would like.

College Hill Cemetery Lebanon IL
This is a huge cemetery and its hard to find any grave without a section/plot. I may be able to go over and look later this fall once I have a list of names with plots.

In the meantime I found this great site that lists all the graves at this cemetery and a transcription of the headstones! This may tell you what you need to know without a photo.

I am in NO WAY connected with this site. I found it while looking for a Plat Map to help with filling photo requests.

RE: Dea. Thomas Carpenter
You're welcome for the transfer. I know that if you wanted to add information about him and his family to the memorial, it is much easier if you can add the information yourself without asking someone else to do it for you.

There sure a lot of Carpenter's buried in that cemetery!!!

Best Regards,

Dea. Thomas Carpenter
I received your additions to Thomas Carpenter's memorial but decided that since he is one of your great grandfathers that you should maintain his memorial so you can add any information that you like. Hope that is OK with you.

I have uploaded the photos on Joseph Carpenter's memorial too.

If I can help further, please let me know.

Best Regards,
Ginny DeLong

Another Joseph & Nancy Carpenter Child
In the Carpenter Burial Plot I found the headstone of I believe another child of Joseph and Nancy Carpenter that died November 14, 1836. If you would like to set up the memorial - I will add his headstone photo (or I can if you would like). He is buried between Albert Norton Carpenter and the two Jane Buffum Carpenter's.

I also added another photo of Joseph and Nancy Mason Carpenter that was readable, and I set up a memorial for Deacon Thomas Carpenter, husband to Mary Carpenter. I would be glad to transfer that memorial to you.

Best Regards,
Ginny DeLong

I do not have any additional info on Memorial# 66587456. I do not think it is the Nathaniel Baker (1711 - ) in the Francis Baker-Isabel Twining line of Bakers. You can check out my web site ( for the info that I have; or, send a eMail and I can send you a report on NB. This entry came from research that I was doing.

Additional info
Hi there,
To make things easier for me (and others) before you send info via the edit tab...can you please make it clear, concise & to the point? Have all your info together in one message? I just got 2-3 different messages per person (Hudson). I don't mind adding info, but to lessen the chances of me missing something/screwing something up, it's a lot easier to work from 1 message.
Go back & look things over, if I accidentally omitted something, send it again, but 1 message/memorial please.
Thanks :)
