Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was "made" in Hutchinson, Kansas, but born in Kansas City, Missouri. My parents' families were mostly pioneers who settled in south-central Kansas starting in 1871. They were from somewhat mixed backgrounds, but a good many of them had their roots in colonial America in Massachusetts and Connecticut. I started doing my family tree in October 2011, not really expecting to find much. It's been a fascinating journey, uncovering the lives and origins of my family's roots.

Among my ancestors I've found are 9 Mayflower passengers (Gov. William Bradford, Richard Warren, Francis Cooke, William and Mary Brewster (2x), John Howland, John Tilley his wife Joan Hurst-Tilley and daughter, Elizabeth Tilley-Howland. Also were Gov. Thomas Prence of Plymouth Colony, Edmund Freeman (3x) Asst Gov of Plymouth Colony, Gov. John Webster of Connecticut Colony, Rev. John Davenport, co-founder of New Haven, CT, Stephen Goodyear, Lt Gov of New Haven, Thomas Roberts, founder of Dover Colony of New Hampshire, Gov Thomas Mayhew, founder of Martha's Vineyard, MA, Edmund Hobart, founder of Hingham, MA (3x), John Prescott, founder of Lancaster, MA, Deacon Samuel Chapin of Springfield, MA, George Cleeve, founder of Portland, ME, plus many other early settlers and first proprietors of Hartford and Haddam, CT, plus other towns. Ann Alcock-Foster (2x) died in Salem, MA in 1692 awaiting execution, falsely accused of witchcraft during the witch trials, John and Joan Carrington were executed for witchcraft in Wethersfield, Ct. Some of these New England settlers have traceable ancestry to royalty and nobility in England and other countries.

Find-A-Grave is mostly a place to honor your family, ancestors and friends, but it's also been a big help in confirming and cementing my findings. I think that it should be necessary to have an actual grave or at least proof that an actual grave exists in a particular cemetery in order to be able to post one here, however.

The information and photos Find-A-Grave volunteers provided have been totally invaluable, and I really appreciate what they've done. I have been doing landscape, scenic and historical photography for quite a few years as a hobby, so I decided to chip in and contribute to this site as well. I live in the beautiful and historic state of Virginia in the Fredericksburg area, and have a access to a lot of historic graves and buidlings. My sons, Erik and Kris often accompany me on my outings - it's a great thing for us to do together, and I appreciate the opportunity to get out with them on a "mission".

Feel free to contact me if you'd like to have any photos of the area or if you have any info or corrections for me. I try to respond to photo requests in my area within limits of my work hours, etc. I'd be happy to take photos for anyone, regardless of whether I get credit for it or not. This is a hobby I do to help other people, NOT for competition. My photos are totally shareable with other websites (, etc.), so feel free to use them for any honorable purposes; that's what I take them for. I don't understand why some people post photos here and then don't want to share them with others, including descendants of the deceased. If I'm helping you, I'm happy :). I welcome any correspondence from anyone on findagrave, though it may take a while to get back to you.

Thanks for taking the time to look for his gravesite. His death certificate claims he was buried there, but we know those are not always accurate.
Thanks again for your time and effort!

RE: Greenfield Cemetery
Thanks Steve in advance. I really appreciate the effort you are going through to get these photos for me and other family members doing research in the future. I, like you, enjoy finding the old cemeteries and then finding that old marker that nobody has been able to locate. Again, thanks for the effort and I am looking forward to seeing the pics. Tim
