Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the peace and quiet of cemeteries. (There are no telemarketers calling.) I also love taking pictures. The exercise is at my own pace. The stones are interesting, and they absolutely need to be documented before they are lost to the ravages of time.

I'm 10 generations forward from my Mayflower ancestor George Soule. I'm 13 generations from my New Haven founder Capt. Nathaniel Turner. 13 Generations is 1024 direct ancestors (doesn't count siblings etc.) My husband also has 1024 direct ancestors going back to the Mayflower. That's 2048 direct ancestors. I haven't found them all in the 40+ years I've been researching. But I'm still looking. Thanks to all of you members at Find a Grave, who are making finding their burial places easier.

PLEASE use the EDIT tab for suggestions, corrections and transfers. I'm happy to make changes, but I'm going to ask you for a source, if it's not directly on the stone. (Using the new edit system you can send source information through the "Suggest any other correction or addition" line.) The internet is a wonderful thing for genealogists but it's also very good at spreading misinformation, and I am trying very hard not to spread undocumented genealogy. That's one of the reasons I love Find a Grave, because I can look directly at a gravestone and see exactly what it says and don't have to depend on second and third hand information. Happy hunting.

PHOTOS OF GRAVESTONES. Please feel free to use mine, that's why I took them. I do like to get credit, though. "ASB"

PHOTOS OF PEOPLE. I've posted them to be enjoyed by visitors to Find a Grave. I was a little taken aback to see my mother's photo on Ancestry. So you're welcome to use them, for your personal use, but I would appreciate it, if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites.

Dorothy Perrin Memorial 93207871
This might be a stretch, but I was looking for the grave of Dorothy Morris, 1701-1790. She married Samuel Perrin of Pomfret in 1724. He died in Pomfret in 1765. She died in Pomfret May 8, 1790. Could this be her grave?

Deidamia Hanks
Thank you for creating the memorial, processing the edits and linking Deidamia to her parents & sibs.
I am descended from her sister, Elizabeth Hanks Walker. I'm assuming that Elizabeth named her daughter, Deidamia (my 3rd great grandmother), after her deceased sister.

Would you happen to have any information on the Ebenezer Walker family living in that area around the turn of the 19th century (1790- early 1800s)? According to the family history that I received, Deidiamia's parents, Ebenezer & Elizabeth Hanks Walker, owned 2 hotels that were around the Becket? & Windsor? area at the time of her marriage to Allen Benton. Allen & Deidamia Walker Benton then moved to Medina, Ohio. Deidami's parents later moved to New York.

Research on the New England small towns during that period has been very trying for me.. The boundaries and names seemed to change every few years.

Again, thank you, for all you do for this site..

Sincerely,
Sandi L.

No, not blood related-just working on the Brush Creek Cemeteries and all the 'connections'. Was raised in Brush Creek and know a lot of the families.

Willard Everett Arnold
Thank You for creating the memorial for Willard Everett Arnold and for all your work on Find A Grave. With respect to your biography on him and an edit decline. Please look up more records on him (this is MY Family) I sure he thought of Emeline Fenn as his mother, because she raised him. His biological mother was Rachel Taft. His father, Capt Edward Green Arnold had three wives, Emiline Fenn was his third, and they married in 1870. Please look up Willard Everett Arnold's birth and death records, and you will find his mother was definitely Rachel Taft who died in 1869.

Thank you in advance, and again, thank you for all your contributions to this site.

Thank you for the transfers, although I wasn't expecting you to do that. I'm really happy that you had them in Find A Grave, and that you had pictures of their tombstones, etc.

Keep up the good work, which I'm sure helps a lot of people out.

William Booth #112884738
Hi--

I know that William's tombstone says that he was born in 1829, but according to the family genealogy, he was supposedly actually born on Dec. 4, 1828. Could you possibly make a note of that in his bio???

Wow, thank you so much for the fantastic photos. I really appreciate your time and effort to help me with these requests. I would like to ask your permission to post them on ancestry with photo credit to yourself. Please let me know if this would be okay with you. Thanks again, Doris
