Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of William Backus, Sr., who came from England to settle in Old Saybrook, Middlesex, CT, by 1637. He died in 1661, in Norwich, New London, CT.

My mother's paternal ancestral line descends from James Pike, who was settled in Charlestown, Middlesex, MA by 1647 and later moved to Reading, Middlesex, MA..

My direct ancestral surnames include (but are not limited to): Abbe, Allen, Atkins, Backus, Bailey, Bassett, Benton, Brown, Buelow, Bumpas, Caswell, Chaffn, Charles, Chase, Clement, Cram, Cross, Damon, Decato, Eaton, Engleshie, Gard, Garnzey, Giguere, Hale, Hallet, Hayward, Heath, Hebard, Howard, Huntoon, Johnson, Lapham, McCowen, Merrifield, Palmer, Pierce, Pike, Pitkin, Ross, Story, Stresseman, Thurber, Towne, Webster, Wheelock, White, Willis, Wright and Young.

With few exceptions, the memorials found in this contributor account were created for members of my direct family but they are part of our extensive genealogy project, which includes many more Find A Grave Memorials. We are family genealogists and our Find A Grave work is driven primarily by our project, but due to the scope of this project, we know that our managed memorials are benefiting thousands of visitors to Find A Grave who are searching for information about their family members. We also make contributions to Find A Grave outside of our genealogy project. We sincerely thank all of the Find A Grave contributors who have helped us.

Note: I cannot accept edits without proof by documentation. If you have an edit to suggest, please email the supporting documents for me to review.
