RE: Mary Jane Russell Tilton
Thanks. Usually the database would say moved or interred somewhere else and it doesn't. I believe the one you have is a cenotaph and the Cedar Hill one is where she is buried with her family. However, it may remain a mystery.

RE: Abraham Bunton
The information I have on Abraham Burton is from the Wilton town history--Abraham was born April 20, 1822, son of John and Sarah (Dale) Burton. It says that he was married twice, and that Rachel A Parkhurst was his second wife (no mention of who the 1st wife was; also no mention of children apart from Abraham and Rachel having 2 children who died as infants). It does say the Abraham was "An upholsterer; res. Manchester".
Rachel was born 28 Jan 1826, was a teacher, and moved to Manchester after her marriage to Abraham. I don't know if this is enough information to tell if the Wilton Abraham is the same as this one in Manchester; thanks so much for getting back to me!

RE: Livingston/Liningstone
According to the cemetery book, Hiram is buried in lot # 12221/2 on the Chestnut Path in the Valley Cemetery. There are two bases there, stones have disappeared. I have copies of Hiram's and Mary's death certificates. In this lot, his cousin, Charles Livingstone [the printer] is also buried. There is a large boulder in lot, placed there to mark Alan Livingston's gravesite. Alan was the grandson of Charles, and the Director of Parks in Manchester. Hiram and Mary had one surviving child, Robert, who married and moved to Providence, R.I. Mary lived with them until she died.

RE: Eldora aka Eldoras Chase in Valley
Lawrence MA Vital Records gives a birth
name of Eldora Chase.
Valley Cemetery Records Image 896 gives
a burial date of 23 Aug 1911 for Eldora
J Chase.
NH Death Records 1654-1947 gives a death
date of 19 Aug 1911 and a burial date
of 23 Aug 1911 in the Valley Cemetery,
for Eldoras J Chase.
Either way would have documentation and
hopefully family may enlighten us.

absolutely, at your convenience, I'm going through the memorials I have created, but they won't last long with so much time on my hands. Thank You as always

Hi Pat,
I have a broken ankle, that is going to keep me off my feet through mid june. So no ground work in the Valley, BUT I have a World Explorer Plus plan in effect with Ancestry, and tons of time. I would love to help you do research while I am incapacitated. Just send me some names and I'll be more than happy to help.
Thank You

Misread what was said
I'm sorry, but believe you are totally misreading us. First if you reread below it is a find a grave policy which we nicely sent to the other member you said we threaten and we were just showing you we didn't threaten it was just a friendly fyi. No need to get upset about anything, I totally understand what you are trying to say, and we are fine with that. Again, it was just a quote of the find a grave policy which can be found under the help with find a grave button. We have no power to do anything, only Find A Grave does. Hope you have a good week, and thanks again for the edits you did make.

This is a copy of the message I sent which was not meant to be threatening in any way; it actually says a friendly FYI, if you viewed it that way I am sorry.

“Just a friendly FYI regarding Find A Grave policy on

As a contributor, do I have to make corrections or additions to the memorials I manage?

Find A Grave memorials are to be viewed as works in progress. There is always the potential for someone to send you a correction or additional information. As the manager of the memorial, we hope that you will be excited to receive and post new information as it is presented to you. If you neglect to update memorials when valid corrections are sent to you, we may determine that you have become an inactive member. If that happens, we may make corrections on your behalf or transfer management of the memorial to an active contributor. If you have added memorials that you do not want to manage, please let Find A Grave know, and we will assume management.”
