LAURENCE WILES #70570215 photo request
I found the grave of Laurence's son Alan T. Wiles who is buried in Hillside cemetery Cheshire, Connecticut. I will add a picture to Alan's memorial their are no other names on the headstone but perhaps this is the Wiles family plot.

history question
Do we know by what means and what routes the Vermonters who founded Weyawega, including Alvah Rich and his family, would have taken from Vermont to Wisconsin? Thanks!

One more child!
Hello and thanks so much for maintaining the memory of the Rich family.

Alvah Rich had a son named Austin B. who died very young. He later had another son with the same name who stayed in Vermont when the others left for Wisconsin.

That Austin B. Rich is my great grandfather; he is buried in Westlook Cemetery in Glover VT. He's in the Find a Grave database; he just needs to be connected to his parents on his page and added as a child on this page.

Last 4th of July Joan A. the town historian from Glover showed me the farm on which Austin Buell Rich was born; of course that's where Alvah Rich and the rest of them would have been living at the time.

I hope this helps, best wishes to all and thanks again!

RE: Oramel Rich
The "Wisconsin Civil War Roster" can be read online. The easiest way to find it is to Google that phrase - let me know if you have trouble finding it.

He can be found on page 580 of Part 1 of the Regimental Index.

It doesn't say exactly what day he was wounded (nor the type of wound), but I know that the battle ran from 27 Mar to 8 Apr, 1865.

I just found a pension payment card which states he sustained head wounds (this is the exact statement, which includes abbreviations): "Total loss of R. ear, res. dis. L. eye, res. total disability as to render & cc". It doesn't make complete sense, but you can see that he was wounded in the head.

Link to this record:

If you want more detailed information, you can send for his complete pension file ($85?).

Hope this helps.

Betty Jean Sweeney
Hi Charles, it is me again ;).
I tried to fill a photo request today for Betty but did not find her in my records. Did a little research and see that there is a second memorial for her that has her buried in North Ferrisburg Cemetery with a memorial # 113710563. She is buried there with her husband Louis Earl Sweeney with a photo added also.
Just thought I would let you know.

RE: Rigton Thomas Burial Place
Thanx for the response, Charles. I live only about a mile from the cemetery, and the only evidence of burials there are posted to Find A Grave.
I'll keep on looking and maybe get lucky. Thanx again, and have a great day.

Thomases in Skipperton Ga.
Hi Charles, Dennis (Popeye) Roland here in Macon. Do you by chance have anything on Rigdon Thomas Sr. and his wife Catherine?? I'm looking for their final resting place and haven't had any luck so far. Anything you may choose to share of the Thomas family would be appreciated.
Thanx for all you do in Find A Grave and have a great day.

Mary's gravestone (Find A Grave #69098145) is laying flat on the ground. It is in need of being properly restored by a trained professional. If you would like a free estimate to restore the stone, let me know. I am a gravestone conservator who is fully trained and certified in working with historic gravestones.
