Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy for many years and in researching have found myself in many different cemeteries and have fallen in love with them. They have so many stories to tell, some happy and some not so. And as the years pass and the old stones are getting more and more worn and hard to read I am so glad to know so many are trying to preserve them by taking photos and transcribing the stones and getting them up on findagrave. What a wonderful place this is with so many hard working contributors.

It is not necessary to "own" a memorial to make changes. I try to make all edits, corrections and links in a timely manner. Please use the edit tab for this purpose.

Please remember to check your edits at the top right of your profile page.

RE: #146874781 Aubery Douglas Down
I'm gradually transcribing all the cemeteries where my ancestors lived so it's possible Aubery may be added to my tree. I've just done a quick search and his parents are possibly James and Sarah Elizabeth Foord.

GM Chute
Jasper A Whitney
Yes, that is the one. Except he was born after Samuel Whitney died. His mother lived with a John Chute. They did not marry. He carried his mother's married name. That is why I was wondering if there was a last name on the stone. I will have to go over and check.

Janice, Does the stone of Jasper Whitney have the Whitney name on it somewhere? I can't tell in the photos. Sometimes he went by the name Chute and I wonder if they left his last name off.

Hi Janice,

Thank you so much for the photo of Hiram's headstone. I really appreciate you volunteering your time! I submitted an edit--no rush, but Addie was actually Hiram's daughter. :) Thanks for helping to further my research!

Thank you
Thank you for updating the memorial request!
I wish more people on Find A Grave cared about it or
would turn "their" memorials over to someone else
if they are not willing to put in the time like
people like you.
Thank you again
