Bio and Links
Bio Photo trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.

Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County. I've been known to wander off to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine given the opportunity.

Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.

Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.

I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.

My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed... Click here to see the memorials I've added in the past few 7 days.

RE: Sarah E Stocking
You're welcome. I sent edit requests to the owners of the two memorials.

RE: Sarah E Stocking
I don't think the two memorials are duplicates. The one you mentioned has a death date of Jan. 1852. Looking on I see a Sarah E. Stocking of Cromwell, daughter of John, who died Jan. 21, 1852 at the age of 16 mos. The photos are for Sarah C. Stocking, wife of William. shows a Sarah C. Stocking of Cromwell, wife of William, who died Dec. 14, 1857, at the age of 48. Both memorials could use some editing to make this more clear.
Best wishes,

Sorry, I copy and pasted from my notes on the entry. It is linked to the "Connecticut, Church Record Abstracts, 1630-1920".

RE: Abel T. Howard
I know Mary married Abel T. Howard, but I don't have any more information about him. There appear to be a lot of Abel Howards. When I saw Goshen in your "name", I thought you might know, since that's where the Mikesell family was from.

Is the Abel T. Howard in memorial 73002615, the man who married Mary Mikesell?

I'm sorry, I cannot find the "edit button" referred to above; I would like to correct an error in the transcription of Isaac Dolsen's gravestone: he died in 1794 (not 1784), aged 87 years (not 82).
