Aunt Olive Lacroix
Thanks for finding her for me this AM. Would have stuck with it but was just to ill but glad you found she was buried with the family. I rather suspected she had been. They all stayed pretty close to one another.

God Bless,

RE: samuel lord pic
Hello Rick,

I just did a little digging.

There is a record on Northeast Kingdom Genealogy (online; only costs $4 a year to use), which had this listing from Barton town records:

Children of Mr. Samuel Lord & wife Elizabeth:
1. Abner Keyer Lord, b Oysipy NH, 12 June 1795
2. Josiah Lord, b 21 Jan 1798
3. Nancy Lord, b.26 June 1800

In the "History of Barton, Vermont" by Darlene Young (1998), available from Barton Town Clerk, Samuel Lord was one of the 8 petitioners for a meeting to organize the town in 1798, and was one of the voters at the very first town meeting in March, 1798. He took the Freeman's Oath in Sept 1798 at the Freeman's Meeting.

I tried to check in Abby Hemenway's "Vt Historical Gazetteer" (1860-1891), which I have on CD but could not get it to load...but that might have some great info as it profiles the earliest settlers in each town. (The CD I have was from the New England Historical Genealogical Society, so probably if you have a membership there, you could search it online.)

I did check the Childs Gazetteer for Orleans and Lamoille Counties (1883), which listed him among the attendees at the first town meeting.

Hope this helps a little! It does answer your question about who the parents of Abner were, but does not answer the question of who "J." was who was a parent of those children whose graves I photographed next to Samuel.

Good luck!!

RE: sawyers
Sorry to hammer with so many edits. But connecting families on Find A Grave requires that.
As to the Sawyer connection .. My immigrant Sawyer ancestor appears to be James Sawyer of Gloucester.
As to the Dorothy Sawyer who married John Young .. She SEEMS to not a Sawyer, but a Brown. Her parents may be Thomas and Elizabeth (Berry) Brown. She married Joseph Sawyer 1 Dec 1729 Newbury, MA. Joseph Sawyer died 1749 Kingston, NH. She married [2nd] John Young 1749 Kingston .. [Sawyer Families Vol II]
To your email I'll send info from Stephen Sawyer's pension file.
If this grave is not recognized as a Rev War vet, then it should be verified and recognized ...

RE: polly french
You just need to tell Find A Grave that the Cemetery is now one and give them the history. Just put in a request and give them all the details. I had to do it once. It took a little while but not that long. Either way one of you will need to delete your duplicate memorial, so you will need to get together and decide who. I just happened to notice and let you know. Usually per Find A Grave policy it is the person who created it last as they should have checked to see if a memorial already existed. I personally think it depends on which memorial has all the links already made to it. Pictures can easily be transferred to the other memorial. Good luck

Fred & Sarah J Hunt
Thank you so much for the incredible pictures, not only of Fred and Sarah, but their son George and Daughter Theresa and her husband Edward Sheehan. I had no idea they were buried there also. In fact, I didn't know Theresa's husband's name. I am so grateful for all of your help.

RE: Marjorie Barstow
You are welcome. Yes, I was the one who claimed Marjorie. You must have requested the rest of the family later, and Joe claimed them.
