history question
Do we know by what means and what routes the Vermonters who founded Weyawega, including Alvah Rich and his family, would have taken from Vermont to Wisconsin? Thanks!

One more child!
Hello and thanks so much for maintaining the memory of the Rich family.

Alvah Rich had a son named Austin B. who died very young. He later had another son with the same name who stayed in Vermont when the others left for Wisconsin.

That Austin B. Rich is my great grandfather; he is buried in Westlook Cemetery in Glover VT. He's in the Find a Grave database; he just needs to be connected to his parents on his page and added as a child on this page.

Last 4th of July Joan A. the town historian from Glover showed me the farm on which Austin Buell Rich was born; of course that's where Alvah Rich and the rest of them would have been living at the time.

I hope this helps, best wishes to all and thanks again!

RE: Oramel Rich
The "Wisconsin Civil War Roster" can be read online. The easiest way to find it is to Google that phrase - let me know if you have trouble finding it.

He can be found on page 580 of Part 1 of the Regimental Index.

It doesn't say exactly what day he was wounded (nor the type of wound), but I know that the battle ran from 27 Mar to 8 Apr, 1865.

I just found a pension payment card which states he sustained head wounds (this is the exact statement, which includes abbreviations): "Total loss of R. ear, res. dis. L. eye, res. total disability as to render & cc". It doesn't make complete sense, but you can see that he was wounded in the head.

Link to this record:

If you want more detailed information, you can send for his complete pension file ($85?).

Hope this helps.

Betty Jean Sweeney
Hi Charles, it is me again ;).
I tried to fill a photo request today for Betty but did not find her in my records. Did a little research and see that there is a second memorial for her that has her buried in North Ferrisburg Cemetery with a memorial # 113710563. She is buried there with her husband Louis Earl Sweeney with a photo added also.
Just thought I would let you know.

RE: Rigton Thomas Burial Place
Thanx for the response, Charles. I live only about a mile from the cemetery, and the only evidence of burials there are posted to Find A Grave.
I'll keep on looking and maybe get lucky. Thanx again, and have a great day.

Thomases in Skipperton Ga.
Hi Charles, Dennis (Popeye) Roland here in Macon. Do you by chance have anything on Rigdon Thomas Sr. and his wife Catherine?? I'm looking for their final resting place and haven't had any luck so far. Anything you may choose to share of the Thomas family would be appreciated.
Thanx for all you do in Find A Grave and have a great day.

Mary Olmsted
Mary's gravestone (Find A Grave #69098145) is laying flat on the ground. It is in need of being properly restored by a trained professional. If you would like a free estimate to restore the stone, let me know. I am a gravestone conservator who is fully trained and certified in working with historic gravestones.

Added by Kurt Riegel on Jul 13, 2013 11:30 PM

Opps! Looks like they are both correct. I did not even see the one in the ground... sorry.

RE: Photo
It is a coincidence that you wrote me the same day I was researching and uploading photos for a huge monument with the Swasey surname at Central Cemetery in Beverly, Masachusetts. Here is the link, check it out:

RE: Photo
Hi Chuck,

You asked:
"If i may ask where did you obtain the copy of Calvin Tuck's death notice"

I usually get death certificates and other documentation from the Family Search website. You can click on and download actual documents which are digital photos of old records. To upload any of them to FindAGrave you would have to reduce most files by at least 50%. Here is the link to the site:

You may copy and paste the link to you browser and start searching right away.

Thomases added to New Elim Baptist Church Cemetery
Hi! I added some Thomas relatives & photos that you might not know about. Added to New Elim Baptist are: Nancy Matthews Carroll buried next to Priscilla Matthews Thomas. No dates on Nancy Matthews Carroll headstone but I assume it is Priscilla's sister. Also added was Allie Edith Thomas McLane White. Buried next to her is her daughter by McLane: Eunice Rosemond McLane. If you want to manage any of these, please contact me. Also let me know if you need any more photos of these additions' spouses. I did not look around for them but can easily go back. Barb

Keith family
Hi Charles, I think I know what happened. According to the Evergreen Cemetery book, Charles Keith is in Block 10, NOT 28 as listed. That is why I could not find him! This cemetery is a mess. The blocks don't correspond between the two books, they have your family name spelled Keith and Kieth, another problem!
Well, I was able to find most of them but it does look like Charles, who died in St. Louis is in Evergreen. I will go back and look again but do not know when that will happen.
I prefer to send the photos directly to the person anyway so you can manage them. Feel free to e-mail me at mossmkek@bayland. net
Sorry for all the confusion but most of this family is in Block 28, NOT Block 10 as listed in the Evergreen Cemetery Book on the internet.
Thank you,
Elaine Moss

Hello again Charles, Checking this out, they may have said he was buried in Evergreen but I am thinking he was buried in St. Louis. At present, I have not found a stone for him.

Hi Chuck. Not really into Kelton genies but a distant cousin that I chat with every day, her mom is a Kelton from South Lincoln. My grand father's sister married Earl Kelton.

RE: Photo's
Hey Chuck,

Just thought I would let you know that I came across a Henry Swaysey (Mar 19 1838-Nov 28 1915), and his wife Myra A. Joslin d. Oct 21 1896. at the Grove Cemetery in St. Johnsbury (East).
And there is also a Emeline Swaysey, d. Feb 1879 @ 47y 5m in the Lyndon Center Cemetery.
I did not see memorials in either cemetery for these names and don't know if it is in your tree.

RE: Photo's
Hi Charles,
The Mississinewa Friends Cemetery was the very first Cemetery in Grant County. This is also known as a Quaker Cemetery.Years later the IOOF bought land next to the M.F.C. Then years after that they bought more land and thats when it was changed to Estate Serenity thats what it is known as today. I hope this helps.
