Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired pediatric nurse. My husband and I travel often, but mostly on cruise ships. Some day I need to convince him we need to travel on land. We both have so many historical figures in our family tree. I would love to see the areas of our country where it all began.
The headstone in the picture is where my 4th great grandfather John Curtis lies. On July 22, 2015 the Town of Milton organized a Revolutionary War Veteran's Ceremony for him. I will be eternally grateful for the love and care they gave to my grandfather. He had not been recognized as a soldier until November 2014 when I was excepted into the Daughters of the American Revolution.
I am always glad to transfer a memorial I have created to a family member or even to some who cares. I can't do justice to someone I do not know, happily give to those who can. Just remember to give me your FAG# ;-)
Many of the memorials created are taken directly from the lists created by Ancestry or Historical Societies. I have thousands more to add.

RE: Mary Freeman
Debbie, I feel your pain. I have many relatives i n a cemetery in another part of NJ with only 4 stones and loads of space around them. I know of several who died there & must be in those unmarked spots. :(

RE: Helen Johnson - New Calvary Cemetery
Debbie, I posted whatever Churchill stones I found in a group at NEW Calvary in PARLIN, which is cemetery picture shown. For Mary Freeman, are you sure she was buried here? OLD Calvary is up behind Church in SAYREVILLE. They are about 2 miles apart. I didn't see her at either, but I may have missed her. Also, she died in NY, so maybe she's interred there with her parents?

Caleb Brewster - Revolutionary War Hero and Spy
Debbie, Have you had the opportunity to read "George Washington's Secret Six" yet? it has many fascinating stories about Caleb and his contribution to the Culper Ring, one of the several spy rings that His Excellency General George Washington had created during the British occupation of New York city. They worked in the city, and between Long Island and Connecticut. Caleb's contribution was invaluable. He was very brave and very clever. As one man, Major George Beckwith, who was a part of Britain's Intelligence Service after the Battle of Yorktown, (1882-1883) said,

"Washington did not really outfight the British, he simply outspied them." It would have been difficult to have outfought the best trained and the best equipped army in the Western world at the time, but his varied amounts of spies kept him continually apprised of what was going on where. Washington, himself, was a brilliant strategist and kept the British constantly on their toes. He also had fighting men and women who were not willing to ever give up.
When the Brits finally figured that out, they began to prepare the way for the surrender and in September 1784, they left the city.
