Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Middlebury's Porter Hospital and always lived in Bristol VT. I have genealogies of many of our families in Chittenden and Addison County. I live with my wife, Denny, and sons Jonathan and Jacob. Don't be afraid to ask me to turn over any of the memorials. You are welcome to use my pictures but photo credits would be nice. I am happy to transfer anyone not related to me so that they can go to someone that knows them. I will not delete all grave pics to make room for family pics.

****Please use the EDIT button for additions, transfers and corrections*****
Please do not move your Burial Unknown into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my duplicate. Memorials listed in the incorrect cemetery also fall under the category of an Unknown Burial because the burial place was obviously unknown if the person is listed in the wrong cemetery. For further information on this, please refer to how Find a Grave handles duplicate memorials. I do also make mistakes but this is find a grave site not add an obituary.

Carleton and Adelia M. Brown Billings
Hi again,

The staff at Highland Cemetery in Ypsilanti, Michigan, informed me today that this couple is definitely buried there, along with their daughter, Adelle Billings Vining.

If you think the gravestone in Gee Cemetery is for the same couple (as I do), perhaps you can note that it is likely a cenotaph and they are not buried there?

Carleton and Adelia M. Brown Billings

I am curious about this couple who has a gravestone in Gee Cemetery in Ripton (memorials #41610510 and #41610595). I believe I have this same couple buried in a cemetery in Ypsilanti, Michigan, along with their daughter, Adelle G. Billings Vining, who was born in Ripton (see memorials #148954619 and #148954318).

The names are very similar (Carleton vs. Carlton) and the dates as well, off by a year at most. Adelia Brown Billings did go on to remarry after Carlton's death, to a man named Ferris in Michigan. Her death certificate says she is buried in Ypsilanti (and according to the stone with her daughter and first husband, Carlton Billings).

I am checking with the Highland Cemetery office to verify who is buried in the Vining/Billings plot. Just thought I'd see if you have any records as to whether either of these folks is actually buried in Gee Cemetery or if the gravestone is actually a cenotaph. Perhaps Carlton is buried in Vermont and Adelia in Michigan?

I'll let you know what I find out from the office records as soon as they get back to me. Very strange.

Hi Alan,
Thank you so much for trying to locate the grave of my great-uncle. The only information I had of his grave location was on his death certificate which stated he would be buried in Hinesburg. So, no I don't have the exact location of the grave in the cemetery. I loaded his grave to location to the Hinesburg cemetery in findagrave.

Thanks again for taking the time to try and locate the grave,
Tom Poirier

Thanks for the photo of her gravestone. It solves my mystery and now I know she's the Esther who was the 1st wife of my 4th great grandfather Hiram Miller since it says it on her stone. Thank you for your help.
