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. I've been known to wander off to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine given the opportunity.

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...

Amasa Sproat.
Thank you, I saw this the other day. I haven't got it into the bio section yet. Also I've had many good responses about the vital stats I place in the biography section. Biographies are good & I've been told by researchers the vitals help their research.

He and wife at the very least have markers in Lot 30 graves 7 & 8 per the town of Duxbury.

Please in the future be more careful and ask before requesting someone to delete a memorial, someone else may have done just that, even if this turns out to be a cenotaph it is valid.

Would you like to me transfer her care over to you? I am not related to her.

RE: Lena Overton Terwilliger
Looks like you're right, saw Bessie in 4 different census' and thought that she was another child.



Will let you know if I find out about Eltings parents.

Thanks for all your work, it's been a great help to me.

Please see the census below and add Bessie N Terwilliger to the children for of Elting and Lena Terwilliger.

Find A Grave Memorial# 26998872

Additionally, Elting's mother, Eveline is being very difficult to get a good line on, there seems to gave been two Isaiah and Eveline Terwilligers. Evelane VanEtten was my 2nd great-aunt. It is she in the 1870 census, all the other census' for her are very confusing!

May I suggest that you modify this memorial to read:

Thank you very much,

Thank you for providing me with the correct burial site. I have deleted mine and added the picture of the stone to her memorial that you mentioned.
