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...

|seekerJay||RE: Benjamin Bailey|
You didn't have to send me Benjamin Bailey! Do you want him back? (A long rainstorm during the night and a nice day today, at long last!) No trees have started changing colors yet, though. Do you miss the Hudson Valley? Will you ever return? Virtual hugs!
|Lilian Wheeler HUHN||Good news!!|
What good news!! Definetely he must be SIMEON DEWEY II, with his second wife, Elizabeth Bridgeman, formerly Turner and Seneca (son of his and Hannah Bliss)
Thus a memorial to Simeon II could be created now. What do you think? And I'll be able to link him to the rest of the Deweys.

|Lilian Wheeler HUHN||RE: Contribution|
O.K. I'll be glad to get the transfer back.
As to my sources here they go:
1) Photos of Dewey's residences taken from a book I hold: 'Images of America, Hanover, New Hampshire' by Frank J. Barrett jr.
2)Census (www.familysearchpilot/ ancestry.com/)
3)Data - taken from
-Colonial Families of the United States of America, Volume II
-Ahnentafel for Mary Alice Dewey Barden provided by Shryll Behn.(very useful)
-The Records of Town Meetings: History of the Town of Hanover
-Dewey, Louis Marinus: Dewey Genealogy and family History. Westfield, Ma., Dewey Publishing Company, 1898 (MOL)
-From the bend of the little river: a Wilcox book, immigrant ancestors and allied families, with a sketch and the descendents - Part I: The Allied Families, the immigrant ancestors
-Living descendant I get in touch with
4) Newspapers, obituaries and wills
I hope it may help
|Gretchen Lilly Muller||RE: Pinneo Memorial Photos|
Thank you so much I will do that.
|Gretchen Lilly Muller||Pinneo Memorial Photos|
May I have your permission to use the photos you have posted to the Pinneo memorials in the Hanover Center Cemetery in Hanover, Grafton County, New Hampshire to my family tree? I use the photos I find for sources for my Pineo/Pinneo family ancestors. I always give credit to the person that added the photo to the memorial.
I appreciate all the work you are doing for Find A Grave.
|Lilian Wheeler HUHN||Contribution|
Could it be possible you would add the phrase:
Additional Bio submitted by Lilian Wheeler HUHN - to Memorial# 85242267?
Thank you for your attention in advance.
|Lilian Wheeler HUHN||RE: Name Transfer|
So, immediately IŽll remove the memorial to Simeon II and leave you to put back your memorial to Seneca. Or should I do it for you?
I'm sure I'll find Simeon's grave in the furure. I already found his son Simeon III and provided information to be added to him.
I hope everything will go smoothly now.
|Lilian Wheeler HUHN||Name Transfer|
What a surprise I had today!!! They transferred the memorial in question to me (without asking for, yet)
Thus, before starting my work on Simeon II, would you agree if I keep the memorial to Simeon II and you create one for Seneca Dewey? Do you know where he is buried at? I can provide further information on Seneca afterwards, if you please.
Otherwise, let me know if you have another solution to this intricate issue.
