|Bio and Links|
I am a retired nurse and am currently devoting most of my time to family research.|
I embarked on my genealogical quest twenty years ago. My mother died in 1988 and left behind a small treasure trove of interesting letters, post cards and newspaper clippings. The most interesting letters dated back to the Civil War. I had to know who these people were. I discovered that I am a direct and indirect descendant from about half of the first settlers in Hartford, Connecticut in 1635 (on my mother's side). I have since filled two filing cabinets with records and family files, and have over 15,000 people in my database.
The first time I walked into a cemetery and found a family name, I was hooked. I learned that most people hate cemeteries. I love them.
Most of my entries are family, or extended family. If I have made any errors, please let me know and I will correct them. If you are more closely related to any of the people I have entered, please feel free to ask for a transfer. Just click the tab in the upper right-hand corner of the memorial and leave me a message.

I was wondering who that was that left flowers on my relatives gravesites (Dalton) (recently found by me & I AGREE..like you I am hooked!)It is like doing a puzzle & each piece discovered is a joy & tribute to loved ones passed:)
|D.R. Scherping||Orpha Chapin|
I have added the requested family links to Orpha Chapin's memorial. I do not have any other information about her parents.

Jan, that was very sweet! It is my pleasure; we all rely on each other :)

I transferred management of the memorials to you, so you can continue linking and updating your family as needed.
Thanks for the heads up on the Fullers. They appear as brother and sister in the 1880 Census Warsaw, IL as well.

Thanks for the suggestion. I linked them.

In regards to the duplicates. The lower number tells you who made the first memorial. If a duplicate is found (sometimes the search does not always work with Find A Grave or someone may be inventorying a whole cemetery, or sometimes it is just a mistake) then you hit the edit button upper right of the memorial and send a polite message to the person(s) that created the duplicate letting them know about the possible duplicate. I say possible error because I just had a member rudely let me know I created a duplicate and he did not read the death dates. In fact he wanted me to delete the memorial of the son by error. Some of the members are polite, others are quite rude. I appreciate your note and I have contacted the other members involved. That does not mean that they will make adjustments. Thanks again for the information.

Have you viewed this memorial lately? I have added a tombstone photo.
|Dawna||RE: Thompson vs. Thomson|
I agree that, in times past, spellings varied from record to record. I have found over 100 spellings and misspellings my own maiden surname
However, because Find-a-Grave is supposed to be an index to the graves and, in this case, the gravestones show the surname to be Thomson, that is the spelling that should be used here.
Though this branch of the family seems to have elected to use Thomson spelling, you may continue to keep your personal records however you wish.
