|Bio and Links|
trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.|
Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County. I've been known to wander off to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine given the opportunity.
Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.
Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.
I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.
My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed... Click here to see the memorials I've added in the past few 7 days.

Thank you for advice / suggestion. :-)
|Jane Grey||RE: Gott family|
Thank you so much for your note and quick response. I can't figure out how to respond privately so I'll post it no problem.
Yes, George and Mary where my grandparents.
They are burried in the Rockland Cemetary in Sparkill, N.Y. along with my mother who you referred to as Barbara, it wonderful that you found her records as Barbara, her real name was Barbara Anne Clayton Dove but the hospital made a mistake and she was given Anne Clayton. On her headstone it's written Anne Dove Anthony.
Just as with my Aunt Jane, her real name was June Grey, but they made a mistake and she was given Jane Grey Dove (married Gott). My Aunt Olive Dove Mason is still alive and I've asked her the date my Aunt Jane and Uncle Joe were married, as soon as I have the information I will send it to you.
You are doing a wonderful service and intersting too. Thank you.
If you need information regarding my grandparents I will be happy to send it to you. My grandfather George (Bolen and Dove) his office was on 7th Ave and 34th street NYC, he was in the woolen business and he clothed the soldiers in the second world war, he served in the first world war. A sincere thanks, Olivia Dove Anthony
