Bio and Links
Bio Photo ***********************

If I place a memorial in an incorrect cemetery or if cremains are later buried, please let me know the location of the burial so my memorials are correct.


Please use the Edit tab located at the top right of the memorial to let me know of any corrections/additions to my listings so that I may make the updates.

I spend a lot of time increasing the volume and accuracy of biographical information and links even for unrelated families.

I began studying my family history in 1976 and have been at it ever since. I love searching for members of my family tree and learning all I can about their lives.

Personal focus of research on:

The Lyman Family in America: the Ancestors & Descendants of Richard Lyman & Sarah Osborne from High Ongar, England, 1631.

Thomas Tolman, from Salcombe Regis, Devon, England and arrived in America in 1635 and settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

Memorial #123338824 - Joseph Westcott Hamilton
Could you please provide me more information on this Memorial. Joseph W Hamilton is a direct ancestor of mine. While the vital stats match and the 'Westcott' has been reproduced on many sites, after years of research I have never come across any proof that Westcott was his middle name.

I have only come across the 'W' as a middle initial. Any further information would be much appreciated.

RE: Alanson Gray
I'll have to spend some time on this. I don't know any of Nelson's siblings, I don't know where in NY he was born and I don't know who is parents were. All I know is that he was a traveling tinware salesman before he settled and became a shoemaker. But thank you for all your help. I really appreciate it.
