I am trying to determine if memorial #68723383-Thomas F.Dwyer-is father to Hannah Dwyer who was married to Patrick J.O'Connell?

I cannot determine who her father and mother were.

Thanks for any insight,

Lakeview Cemetery East Hampton, Middlesex, CT
Hi. I have spent some time in Lakeview Cemetery lately and photographed several veterans' stones. I sent you the marker transcriptions using the "Edit" function. Just wanted you to know that I particularly like taking photos of vets' memorials. Feel free to do whatever you wish with the additional information.

Richard Flood, Rev. War Patriot
Richard Flood, Revolutionary War Patriot, was my 4X great grandfather. He was born 13 March 1753 to Henry and Rhoda Flood in Raymond, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. His siblings were: Rhoda, Ruth and Eunice.

After serving in the Revolutionary War, he married Jerusha Rich and moved to Chatham/East Hampton, Middlesex County, Connecticut where he lived out his life and raised his children (dates based on census records):

Henry Flood, born about 1795-1800
Maria (Myrah) Flood, born about 1800-1804
Richard Flood Jr., born 1805
Andrew Flood, born 1810
Jerusha Flood, born 1812
George Loren Flood, born 1812-1815
Emeline Flood, born after 1815

The date carved on Richard Flood's stone is not correct. I have several newspaper articles as well as Connecticut, Hale Cemetery Inscriptions, 1675-1934, Volume 63 P. 693 ( Page 207 of 407)- all state his death date as 4 Sep 1851 in Middle Haddam, Connecticut.

Our family Thanks volunteer Harvey Hilton for sending this: "This is not his original stone, either a family member/relative or service
organization has provided a newer stone."

If you need copies of the newspapers and of the Hale Cemetery Inscriptions, I can send them.

Is there a marker for his wife, Jerusha (Rich) Flood? I Have not found her death date or where she is buried.

Thank you very much, Margie Hinton, direct descendant of Richard Flood, Rev. War Patriot and his wife, Jerusha (Rich).

Bevin stones tidbit
Matt Bevin is getting a Mitch McConnell welcome in Kentucky: A slashing TV ad seizing on the political newcomer's problems with his Connecticut-based bell manufacturing business.

Bevin, a wealthy Louisville businessman, is slated to announce a primary challenge against McConnell on Wednesday, hoping to tap into tea party anger to pull off a major upset against the wily 28-year Senate veteran in 2014.

Read more:

William Bevin learned the art of bell making while working as an indentured servant to William Barton when Barton lived and worked in Cairo, New York. Bevin agreed to the terms and tenure of the indenture under the condition that he could use the craft where and when he desired after he left. William Bevin returned to East Hampton, and with brother, Chauncey, continued to make bells, coffee mills, kettles, and cranes. Another brother, Abner, who had also worked in the Barton shop, joined William and Chauncey and, in 1832, they started the Bevin Brothers bell factory, A fourth brother, Philo, later joined the others and, in 1868, Bevin Brothers was incorporated as the Bevin Brothers Manufacturing Company. The brothers made sleigh, hand, house, cow, sheep, door and ship's bells. They also made up to twenty different sizes of common sleigh bells of the globe, band, or rim variety. Bevin Brothers was reported to produce the first bicycle bells ever made. The first foot bell ever used in an automobile was also produced by Bevin and was patented in 1897

Throughout the past 200 years, more than thirty firms of bell makers have flourished in East Hampton. Companies such as Starr Bros., N.N. Hill and Gong Bell were prominent. Bevin Brothers was the second bell company in town and is now the last one still in business. Of note, William Barton (East Hampton's first bell maker) and the four, original, bell making Bevin brothers (Abner, Chauncey, William and Philo) are buried in East Hampton's Lakeside Cemetery.

I love genealogy and Find a grave, too.
You do a great job in helping a Dane doing US genealogy.

ad Rose C Mogensen Beranek
Do you have any photos of the graves for this grave and her father Hans Peter Mogensen, her brother Albert Andrew Mogensen, and her sister Emma Getin Mogensen?

Do you know if there are descendents in the neigborhood, still?

Hans Peter Mogensen lived about 1921 and 1922 at 22 Colchester Avenue, East Hampton, CT - and maybe he died there.

Best regards
Alice Kirstine
