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.
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...

|Just Roaming Around||just a note|
Thanks for making all the changes for my family. I am enjoying working with You, Lauren, and Deb on this endeavor.
|Sheppard2||RE: John Pope|
Thanks, LadyGoshen for the information. I had no idea of the tannery profession. That's a good suggestion to try NYC. I'll check directories, etc.
|Sheppard2||Dr James Hudson Thompson|
Wonderful memorial! Nice job. If only more could be like this.
|Sheppard2||Adeline Post Thompson|
Karen Singer's Ancestry has the following
Adaline L. Post
Birth 8 APR 1834 in NY, USA
Death 2 Feb 1908 in Goshen, Orange County, NY, USA
Is there a cemetery index?
Also, my interest stems from Dr. Elizabeth Pope, my English teacher in California. Her paternal grandparents are listed in Census as born in Germany. Looking for "John Pope and Marie Sophia Heuerman" in NY.
|Sheppard2||Pope & Thompson edits|
Thank you for your very prompt updating of the memorials. I would be happy to provide sources for you. The Emily Poppino connection was a combination of user trees and comparing 2 census records, one of which was spelled "Toppino." But I couldn't figure why young Wilmot Thompson was living with the Poppinos until I made the connection. I wonder if his mother died in childbirth.
Really appreciate your comprehensive genealogy and linking!
|Just Roaming Around||Question Please|
Hi, I just started doing this and looking for my relatives so excuse me for asking as I am new at this. I have read all the rules for the sight and never saw where I had to provide source information. Could you please tell me where I could find it? Thanks! Joe
|Just Roaming Around||RE: memorial updates|
Sure, but it seems silly to do that since all my sources are from census reports, birth, death, and marriage records which are all public information. These are the only sources I use.
|Wendy||Douglas Barclay, Elmwood Cemetery|
I've made your suggested links on his memorial.
What a great photo of Douglas! Are you related?
Please message me, as I am a cousin...

I found a few years ago that Anna is my birth mother. I was born on February 25, 1947 in Middletown, NY. I was put up for adoption 5 days after I was born. Is there anyway I could be connected with her family? My birth name was Margaret. She was married to E David Fairweather at the time of my birth.
Thanks for any help.
|momoko||RE: Vayette in White River Junction (Vermont)|
Thank you so much for looking for my Vayette ancestors in WRJ for me. Maybe their headstones are lost. I really appreciate you trying!
