Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my ancestors for more than 15 years and have made remarkable progress partly due to sites like Find A Grave and the people that so generously offer their time to help complete strangers. From my own experience I know it can sometimes take a lot of time to find the stones, especially the old ones and taking a good picture can be quite a challenge. So for those that dedicate their time to taking photos I greatly appreciate their effort. I enjoy hearing back from the people requesting photos. It makes it seem all the more worthwhile when I know I have helped them with a little piece of their puzzle.
Most of the memorials I have created are not my ancestors so I'm more than happy to transfer memorial ownership if you have a connection. I try to add as much information as I can regarding their dates and places of birth and death but I do make mistakes. I'll gladly make corrections or add additional information so long as you have documentation to verify your request.
Anyone may use my photos for their own personal family genealogy. I would also be happy to email high resolution photos if they are your descendants. Photo credit would be appreciated.
I would also like to thank my wife for the many hours she has spent helping me find gravestones and do research.
Our descendants include some of the following:
Andrews, Dickerman, DeFlorio, Buchanan, O'Neil, Dodge, Medland, Herwig, Ringquist, Weckesser, Boyce, Adams, Minor (Miner) and Farr.

RE: Silas H Thayer
Hi Bill. There is already a memorial to him it is #82979307 and it was contributed by Marc Thayer III but it didn't have him attached to Harriet Kezia Spear. I have already requested that be done so I guess that's all there is to do. Thanks for offering to find him. That would be great. Could you add that information to his memorial when and if you are willing to find it? Thanks,

Hi Bill!

I have a scanned copy of the Genealogy of Benjamin Cleveland, published in 1879. This info can be found on page 19. Do you want a copy of just that page, or would you like the whole book? Send me your direct email and I'll get the info over to you.

Thank you very much for the transfers. But more importantly, thank you for creating the memorials. Keep up the great work!

Yes, I thought that having the dates (which showed that Francis was first) would self-correct the order of the husbands, but I guess it doesn't do that. I guess I needed to manually do that on the edit request, which I will certainly do in future - thank you!

I thought I had put the marriage dates on the edit request, which are indeed 1838 for Francis & 1847 for Eliezer. I thought having the dates would automatically cause the husbands to be put in the right order (Francis as #1 & Eliezer as #2), but perhaps it doesn't do that. I apologize for the misunderstanding!

I agree with you about the author. There is another Elizabeth that died in 1835 but her husband was John Sanborn. We need to fix this. Thank goodness you re sharp.
