Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy and appreciation of cemeteries came from my maternal grandmother. I belong to the Society of Mayflower Descendants through her ancestors. These ancestors, to date, are Henry Samson (and the aunt who raised him, Ann Cooper Tilley, who had no children of her own), Edward Fuller, James Chilton and his daughter Mary (who married John Winslow), and Richard Warren. More to come, possibly.

I thought Grandma's genealogy was well researched and documented, but I only knew a fraction of it.

Very little is known about Grandpa's ancestry and that continues to be the challenge. His Bunting and Murphy ancestry, however, is known and documented in Livingston and Washtenaw County MI.

I have met many friends and relatives in the process of unraveling my family's past, and it's become a terrific hobby. I don't know what I did in my spare time before.

Some of the names I research are Gardner, Bunting, Murphy, Sprout, Damon, Scovill, Collins, Reed, Hinchey, Lassen, and last but not least, Rasmussen.

Good luck in all your genealogy travels.

Thank you for the correction and the correct dates, I have adjusted the info on her memorial. My photo is hard to read and the error was likely as a result. Jim

RE: Judy Boie
Your welcome. My pleasure, I knew right where it was so it only took me like 2 minutes. I knew her son Scott, back in the 80's I did daycare for him and his wife's children until they moved from here. I just got into genealogy about a year and a half ago and find it so fascinating. Thought if I could help out Find A Grave by taking photos then it would also help others with their research as well. J Fearing

RE: Hincheys in Cherry Creek
Raleigh, The only Hinche stones in Plot 43 were Azariah and Joseph, but there was enough space between them for the graves of Deborah, Rebecca and Salomon. I'm sorry the stones weren't there.

RE: Sally R. Sprout-Alexander Cemetery
I looked around for other Sprouts in this cemetery, but did not see any. Of course, I may have overlooked them too!

RE: Grace Poole Gilchrist Hill-Pinckney
Let me look again if you search the city of pinckney cemetery they have her grave listed and plot number. I didn't have time for someone to take me there. I searched the section she was supposed to be in. There is a section with Poole names in it. I was really looking for Hill. Maybe she is with the other poole's
