Bio and Links
Bio Photo Many of my ancestors arrived in New England after sailing from Great Britain during the Great Migration. Shortly before the Revolution quite a few of them relocated to the Washington County, New York area and to Vermont and were among those who helped settle those places in the 1770s. Their names included Caldwell, Cramton, Frisbie, Harris, Horton, Hosford, Lewis, Morse, Moseley, Noble, Northup, Pierce, and Ripley.

Dozens of the photos I've taken and posted here have found their way to other genealogical websites. I'm happy to be of help to those of you researching your family histories and you're welcome to use the pictures I've submitted for your genealogical projects, but I'd like to be given credit for taking them. Thank you for this consideration.

A big thank you to the many contributors who have linked memorials that they've submitted! I'm especially interested in linking people to their family members who gave their lives serving our country. Let's honor them always.

I'd like to apologize here to those of you whose mailboxes I've loaded with requests for you to link your memorials. Sometimes I get a little carried away.

If anyone has any information about the Henry Aldrich who lost his life in battle during the Civil War at Antietam on September 17, 1862, I would very much appreciate hearing from you. Henry is believed to have been born in Worcester, Massachusetts around 1821. He enlisted in the service early in 1862 at Bristol, Connecticut where he and his family lived and mustered into Company K - 16th Connecticut Infantry. When he died he left his wife, Sarah, and their three young children, Aaron, Eliza and Hubert. Henry also had an older son, John Walker Aldrich, who was serving in Company H - 13th Connecticut Infantry when his father died. I'm trying to learn where Henry was born, who his parents were and who John's mother was. I've only been able to find Henry in the 1860 U.S. Federal census and in his widow's pension application.

I'm guilty of submitting a couple dozen 'unknown burials' to link those people with their families and have put them in two of my virtual cemeteries. I've posted some documentation for them and am working to find where they're buried.

Maybe you can help??

Thanks very much! Steve

Rarmond Henry Morrison, Jr
I added pics to Rarmond Henry Morrison, Jr's page per your request. His wife has never been added to Find A Grave. Do you want to do that and I will put pics on her page too?

William Howard Morrison
I got pics per your request for William Howard Morrison's gravesite. His stone is covered with a rust stain. This is one of the worst ones I have seen. Somebody told me once that these gravestones get rust stains because this cemetery uses fertilizer with iron in it. I don't know if that is true or not? Most of the gravestones in this cemetery don't get these stains, just some of them do this. The gravestone was almost completely covered over with grass. I got that trimmed back out of the way so you could see the stone. I scrubbed and scrubbed on it and got some of the rust to come out but the rest is pretty well penetrated into the stone so you would need a blow torch or something to get it out?! :-]
The stone has nice deep cut letters which makes it nice to get a clear picture of what is on the stone.

You are, of course, welcome. Glad to help. Sorry about the other Salisbury request, but I couldn't take the heat today. Maybe next time.

Thank you so much for the Findagrave information and photos for Levi Morrison and family. Levi is my Great Grand Uncle.

I'm interested in any information on his father Daniel Morrison, my 2nd Great Grandfather, and Levi's brother Dillon Prosser Morrison.
