RE: 42057031 Linda Wright Chapin
Thank you Dave for such a speedy response!

I will check out the links you provided, as well as dig deeper.

Arthur's wife Linda was my aunt, providing that I have the correct Arthur.

I will contact you by your email provided.

Thanks so much,

42057031 Linda Wright Chapin
I'm looking over all the Chapins you have listed and thinking you are related to them, since you have so many? Or at least I am hoping so, lol.

I am looking for my Aunt Linda Chapin, who's husband Arthur L Chapin seems to be listed in your memorial. My aunt Linda's maiden name was Stevens, so either I have the wrong Arthur and Linda (who data is the same,) or perhaps my aunt Linda was married to a Mr Wright prior to Chapin, and perhaps it just got carried over to F-A-G as her maiden name?

Do you happen to know anything about Linda and Arthur? I believe he was an Oil Merchant.

Been looking for this cemetery. Can you recheck the date on the marker. My records show died 20 June 1849, born in 1759, does it say 90 years old?

My records show this family settled in Westfield, Hampden, Massachusetts.

Ann Grantham
Yes we are cousins since Richard Grantham is my fourth great grandfather.
I am going to keep Ann and the others for now. I will be happy to add any additional information you would like to her bio, etc.

RE: Munson Memorials
Thank you very much in advance for helping with this. Do you want any pages of the Munson Record by Myron A Munson scanned to you. I am working on that side of my family right now and using it as a guideline. My great gma was a Munson.

Stephen Munson
I noticed there are 2 f-a-grave memorials for Stephen/Elizabeth Munson & son Garritt

Stephen #37525138 & # 121602648
Elizabeth #121602730 & #37525136
Garritt/Garrett#37525137 & #121602823

I am sending edits to link them so both can remain unless there is proof one is correct. I will send messages to both parties.

RE: Frances McDonald #88859745
Dave, Glad I was able to help you correct the dups.

Unfortunately, we are not related; nor have I found Frances' father. I was working the MacDonald side.

I'm not related to any of these people. I had taken pictures of the monuments in their particular section of Hope Cemetery and just created the pages for her husband's parents this morning. You processed the edit to complete that link.

I searched your inventory of memorials to see if you had any of John P. MacDonald's siblings which could also be linked to their parents. That's when I saw you had multiple pages for Frances.

Thanks for your quick response.

Best regards,
