Bio and Links
I'm a longtime National Guard member (Vermont, New York and now Pennsylvania).

I live in Vermont.

I'm interested in U.S. military and political history, and the history of Vermont and upstate New York in particular.

I contribute to Find A Grave and Wikipedia, as well as other locations.

I'm not hard to find if you want to contact me by phone or email to discuss my contributions.

Bradstreet Tomb
The Bradstreet Tomb was bought and cleaned out by the Ingersoll-Hathorne family of the House of Seven Gables about 1790. There are eight Hathornes, Ingersolls, and friends in the Tomb - Susannah Ingersoll in a lead casket, her adopted son Horace Lorenzo (Conolly) Ingersoll, her Uncle John Hathorne, friend Mary Stewart Clough, brother Sam Ingersoll Jr, and three others. See Robert Rantoul "Bradstreet Tomb" in obscure journal 189X (PEM Philips Library card catalogue) and the day after Horace Ingersoll's Salem Gazette 189X obituary which I read 20 years ago. I shall get more complete info after you contact me at

I don't think you'll find anything at the cemetery, I was there in July. The Pittsfield Historical Society and the Pittsfield Village records office (don't know the correct term) are across the street from the Pittsfield Cemetery, though. They were both closed when I tried to visit. Africa's original death record should be there and possibly much more. Good luck!

Congratulations on finding evidence of Africa Davis' burial place. Could I get a source citation or, possibly, could you post a JPG of the evidence to Africa's Findagrave memorial? All these years descendants have "said" he was buried in the Parmenter Cemetery!

Thank You for putting up the picture of the Peecham Cemetery, in Vermont. I'm Howard Stark's niece, Sally, and was very surprised to find a memorial page put up for him by someone we didn't know.

RE: Thanks for looking for John Nixon's grave
Cool, 3 of those have stones I found and 3 are on the other list and no stone found now. Good place to start poking around.

RE: Thanks for looking for John Nixon's grave
OK Bill, I hope Mr/Mrs Bates do a walk around this weekend and call to say they found John. After finding him in the history book I assume he is in the First Weybridge Hill cemetery so maybe if you go there will be a stone found. Did he have any other family names that might be near him? I have listed all I found and just added the few others that I did not find but were listed in the history book. If you see any connection in the list that might be a starting place to poke around. This is a stony/ledge area and a lot of what look like markers are actually ledge and lot of the old markers can't be read. Seems like he should pop his head up and say hi soon if we keep after him.

RE: Thanks for looking for John Nixon's grave
After getting home I have looked at some of the Weybridge History and it does show John Nixon JR 4/24/1813 age 55 in First Weybridge Cemetery. Maybe the land owner will have better luck. I believe I have all the stones I can read entered now. I did try checking the footstones today to make sure the initials matched the stone. There are still a lot of old stones I can't read. I am trying to find some info on the Nixon Farm
