Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy research and walking through the cemeteries. If you find something I've uploaded and would like it turned over to you, just email me.

I've finished photographing Riverside Cemetery in Waterbury. Their records are difficult to obtain and the sections are not marked. It's going to be a long project. Sadly, vandals have been destroying the monuments and stones. I am making every attempt to get them documented before they are destroyed. I have close to 8000 photos to upload for Riverside. I will be creating pages for missing people throughout the winter.

There have many times; too often for coincidence, that I'm having trouble finding a stone. I simply state "I cannot help your family honor you without your help" only to take follow in a direction I'm pulled to find the stone below my feet. I firmly believe the deceased can communicate. Sometimes, it's just best to stop and listen to what they have to tell us!

Update: I am now a trustee on the Board of Directors for Riverside Cemetery in Waterbury, CT. If you need specific information please go to our website

Memorial# 57205349
Hello. You are doing a wonderful thing by providing all this information about those who have gone on before. With reference to the memorial for Alice L. Smith, # 57205349, Please attach a photo that shows the full information. It looks like the siblings of Alice L Smith are listed and I'd like to see the part that has been cut off. Thanks so much for everything you do.

Darrell McGraw
Stewart memorial
Would you add Raymond G. Stewart to the Riverside Cemetery in Waterford? His wife's memorial (#86291991) was added by you and you have a picture of their stone. I am trying to find out more about them and their daughter Myrtle for a friend.

Thank you,
Darrell McGraw

Hi Therese,

There is a photo on the findagrave memorial for Charles F Church (29075460) that doesn't match the information. Help me know if you need further info.

I love everything you do.

Correx for some CT Whites. I am a direct ancestor.

For example

Jacob Watson White

Luther Chapin White (1821 - 1893)*

Cannot be a child of Jacob Watson White. That would make the dad only 1 when he had his son. It sooooo hard when their first names and last names are soooo similar.

LCW's dad was
Jacob White
Birth 27 Apr 1792 in Middletown, Middlesex, Connecticut, USA .

JWW real child was Edward Luther White

57512680. I shall work it all up. Only the most important correx need to be done. THX

Thanks so much for the headstone photo of my ancestor. It doesn't look to be in the best of shape. Glad we got it entered into findagrave.
