|Bio and Links|
I love the peace and quiet of cemeteries. (There are no telemarketers calling.) I also love taking pictures. The exercise is at my own pace. The stones are interesting, and they absolutely need to be documented before they are lost to the ravages of time. |
I'm 10 generations forward from my Mayflower ancestor George Soule. I'm 13 generations from my New Haven founder Capt. Nathaniel Turner. 13 Generations is 1024 direct ancestors (doesn't count siblings etc.) My husband also has 1024 direct ancestors going back to the Mayflower. That's 2048 direct ancestors. I haven't found them all in the 40+ years I've been researching. But I'm still looking. Thanks to all of you members at Find a Grave, who are making finding their burial places easier.
PLEASE use the EDIT tab for suggestions, corrections and transfers. I'm happy to make changes, but I'm going to ask you for a source, if it's not directly on the stone. (Using the new edit system you can send source information through the "Suggest any other correction or addition" line.) The internet is a wonderful thing for genealogists but it's also very good at spreading misinformation, and I am trying very hard not to spread undocumented genealogy. That's one of the reasons I love Find a Grave, because I can look directly at a gravestone and see exactly what it says and don't have to depend on second and third hand information. Happy hunting.
PHOTOS OF GRAVESTONES. Please feel free to use mine, that's why I took them. I do like to get credit, though. "ASB"
PHOTOS OF PEOPLE. I've posted them to be enjoyed by visitors to Find a Grave. I was a little taken aback to see my mother's photo on Ancestry. So you're welcome to use them, for your personal use, but I would appreciate it, if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites.

I don't always have a chance to contrubed, so this was good.
Arthur Jules Leboeuf died 1930, so yes that is he, and his wife Marie Floeina Gervois died in 1937 and that's a another yes.
thank you for what you have done

There's reportedly other Morgans there:
"Sarah Marion, wife of Jonas Morgan:
"This monument erected to the
"memory of Sarah Marion......
"Consort of Jonas Morgan
"who died June 8th, 1801
"aged 29 yrs."
Frances Broderick notes Sarah's maiden name to be Mott based on a "published genealogy." She also notes Jonas Morgan married Lucy, widow of Jehiel Galpin, on 26 July 1805. JG is at the cemetery; Lucy, it doesn't say. Broderick also stated "Next to the stone of Sarah is that of a Morgan child now unreadable."
I can look for them next time I'm over there. The cemetery is in pretty bad shape; it gets mowed, but that's about it. There's a long history of neglect by the City of Troy, a long history of vandalism which the City has done little to prevent or prosecute, etc.

You sent an SAC asking what made me believe he was buried in the cemetery I have him. Well I found the info about his burial on ancestry.com. Here is a link to the database.
|tofftroy||RE: Jonas Morgan 44869443|
I can take another photo, but I didn't create the memorial here.
"Jonas Morgan was a prominent early Lansingburgh merchant and appears in many early local records. His tombstone is too faded to read, but the Lans. newspaper of that date shows that Jonas Morgan died Oct 7, 1824, aged 74 yrs."

Thank you for your kind note about my grandmother Vesta Bowman! It was appreciated!

Flora and Rosario Lamoureux lived in Worcester. Rosario was born in Worcester. He died in the 1918 flu epidemic and was buried in Worcester. Flora moved back to Southbridge and lived with her mother until her death in 1979.
|Sandra Edwards||Rosario Lamoureux, Sr.|
Rosario Lamoureux, Sr. was buried in Notre Dame Cemetery in Worcester, MA. You may wonder why. I will go into that file tomorrow. I believe he was married previously and that is the reason, but I will check it out tomorrow.
