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.

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...

RE: Willie Lovejoy (108633457)
Lady Goshen,
Thanks for asking for sources. William Ingraham Lovejoy is my 3xGreat Grandfather. According to family records, William Ingraham Lovejoy and Imogene Irene Bryant were the parents of William Benjamin Lovejoy, born 25 Jun 1873 at Hancock, Addison county, Vermont. William B. Lovejoy died on 2 Feb 1891 at Royalton, Windsor county, Vermont. This information is also sourced in the book titled, "The Lovejoy Genealogy" by Clarence Earle Lovejoy, page 262 and in the book titled, "History of Royalton (Windsor County) Vermont, With Family Genealogies, 1769-1911," by Evelyn M. Wood Lovejoy, page 857. Also William Benjamin Lovejoy's birth record source is: "Vermont, Vital Records, 1760-1954," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 17 Oct 2014), William Benjamin Lovejoy, 15 Jul 1873, Birth; citing State Capitol Building, Montpelier; FHL microfilm 540599.

With Kind Regards,
Larry Shoger

Thanks for the beautiful picture of A(nna) Louisa Oakes' grave! Was her husband James anywhere nearby?

Hi Lady Goshen,

We corresponded quite a while ago and unfortunately I've misfiled your email address. Could you please email me? I have something I wished to discuss with you regarding Blooming Grove.

Thanks so much, Linda

"could you please cite the source for the (LOCKWOOD) family links you've sent?"

I'd be happy to do so. Please send me an email request to and I'll send you a summary of my research on the LOCKWOOD family over the last 65 years, complete with source citations. I'm going on 84 years old and genealogy has been my hobby since I was a teen, and I've served as an officer and/or on the board of several genealogical and historical organization including state historian for the Mayflower Society and registrar for SAR and Sons and Dau. of the Pilgrims. My maternal grandmother was a Lockwood. I've made several Lockwood postings lately to Find A Grave, so I don't know which specific ones you are referring to. But send an email message to, and I'll try to help. William L. DeCoursey.

RE: Capt Andrew Tracy
I used family letters, which of course are not the best way but what I had to go on. I would love to see a headstone photo and will correct the memorial to that.

RE: Mitchell Clark
Thank you. Actually about an hour after I sent you the message, I realized his parents were Paul & Elizabeth. Thank you! Thank you for the quick reply. :)

Mitchell Clark
Greetings! I have a question. Is it possibly that Mitchell Clark of Windsor, Vermont had a son Mitchell Clark born 1796? I found a Mitchell Clark (2/29/1796-9/16/1882) who married Lavinia Kent, the daughter of Abner and Jane Hunter-Kent of Royalton, Vermont. They had three children (1) Martha J. (1839-1920); (2) Alonzo Kent Clark (1845-1906); and (3) Henry (1845-1863).

Thanks for your input.
