|Bio and Links|
When I was about 8 yrs. old, my grandmother showed me the rifle, or musket, my gg-grandfather carried home from the Civil War. She told how he nearly starved, after he was captured, and sent to Libby Prison, near the end of the war. All they had to eat and drink was chicken feed and dirty water. This would probably be dried corn, and most of the water, at the prisons, was contaminated, as they were overcrowded at the war's end. Food was scarce, especially in the south.|
She also said, his wife was an Indian that practiced medicine, and she disappeared one day. When Indians were discusted with a marriage, they just walked away.
My cousins heard the same story, and it was more than enough to get all our attention, and interest in our family history.
We did find out all about our gg-grandfather, Albert Clark, but not much about his wife, Julia Goff, except she was buried in Meriden, Ct., and their fourth child died a few months later, while Albert Clark was away at war.
Julia's mother is listed in the Meriden Ct. directory, her occupation is listed as Vapor Baths.
Link onto Talcott Goff's page for new information, to do with our Indian heritage?
I wanted our site to show anyone interested in genealogy, how we went about doing our family history. Also, a chance to thank the many volunteers that helped us in our search, especially Jan Franco of the Meriden, Ct. Public Library.
I have 2 Clark lines, Cathys goes back to Lemuel Clark, who died in Wethersfield, Ct. 1810.
I want to dedicate our Clark and Manville sites and related lines, to my cousin Cathy Carter. We started out together, but unfortunately, Cathy came down with macular eye disease a few years ago.
She was my teacher and followed me every step of the way, until her sudden passing on Oct. 11, 2003.
My other early lines are from my g-grandmother, Emma Hammond Whiting's family records.
Alden, Bass, Weeks, Hammond, Rindge, Maudsley - Moseley, Quarles, Clark, Roper
A special thanks to all the volunteers who have scanned gravestones on the sites!

When I first saw the memorial, it had that you created it and Kevin Avery managed it. The information on the memorial was sketchy and I saved the emails that we corresponded. If you send me your email address, then I will copy you on it.
Timothy Clark(e) is also my dad's ggggf

On Feb 21, 2013 Kevin Avery transferred Timothy Clark(e)'s memorial to me. Is there something wrong with the memorial?

I scoured the area near the Cormiers and could not find Paul Perry, although there is a Julia Perry and the stone nearest her is damaged. That may be Paul as it is behind the Cormiers and next to Julia. All that is left of the stone is the base.

You're welcome Barbara.
|Mike Serpa||RE: Dr. Cyrus Clark, Middletown, Ct.|
Thanks for the kind words. I've posted 178 photos and you are the first to send a message!
Found them on the list! They are in Lot 249. My husband's grandparents are 240 so that gives me the general vicinity; I'll get over there sometime in the next few days and get some photos of the front and back of the stone.
|Katherine Wright||RE: Hopedale Village Cemetery, Hopedale, Ma.|
Hi Barbara, I'd be happy to look them up; my list is in my office, so I won't have access until Monday, 7/8. It's only up-to-date as of a few years ago, but the great thing about it is it has the lot # listed so I can find the stone easily. However, it is a list of people buried there, or the owners of the plot, but I've twice run into requests where there was not a stone at all, just a big empty space where the remains probably ARE buried, just not acknowledged with a marker.
|Mary S.||RE: Pine Grove Cem., Northbridge, Ma.|
I've removed the "extra" (i.e. the front and the duplicate one that showed the entire stone) photos. Sorry about that. BTW, for a one-time fee of $5, you can sponsor a memorial and the limit for photos goes from 5 to 20. It also removes the ads from the memorial page.
