|Bio and Links|
I am from a large farm family. I had five brothers and five sisters. I went to a one room country school for my first year and after that commuted to a nearby town to school there. I am married, have three grown children, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. |
My interest in genealogy perhaps began when my mother's uncle sent her a letter inquiring about our part of the family. In a small way, I had a hand in filling out that questionnaire. I, later on, obtained the book that this uncle had given to my mother with the compiled information in it. Years later, I was able to obtain records that my father's sister had kept with all the information she had put together of our family history on Father's side. You could say that I inherited two nice sets of information. I have done my best to continue on with the start these two gave me, trying to keep information up to date. I realize this will never be finished! However, the computer makes the work so much easier than my uncle and aunt had it.
My youngest daughter has also developed an interest in family history and was the one to introduce me to findagrave. I am glad to have been able to pass this interest on to her generation.
Please email me with any updates, corrections, or removals on any of the information that I have posted.

|Lori Finto||Faith Tristan Clarke Doty|
I have a question regarding info about Faith Clarke Doty Phillips: Daughter of Thurston and Faith Clarke.
"The following courtesy of Pam Johnson:
A sad story about her dad, Thurston. He and Faith (age 15) came to America on the "Francis" in 1634. The ship sailed from Ipswich about the last of April with John Cutting, Master. In 1661, Thurston frozed to death on his way from Plymouth to Duxbury in 1661."
Do you happen to know the source of this info? How can Thurston have died in 1661 and arrived in America on The Francis in 1634?? I'm just beginning to gather info on this part of the family and want to make sure I'm with the correct family/info.

I am William's niece. Just wanted to make a correction. He is not buried in the New Willimantic Cemetery, his sister (my mother)is buried there though. He was cremated and I have his cremains in an urn at my residence.
|Craig W||Thank you for the transfer.|
Thank you for transferring my Great Uncle. My father and I are researching relatives and information to continue to link our family. I appreciate your information and assistance.

No I do not know the answer. I am looking into it. I am checking with the person who added the one in California. The Nona in Kansas matches the dates that I have.

I thought since you maintained his brother Mike and so many others in the Westfield Cemetery that you might want to maintain him also. I guess I should have asked first. If you don't want to maintain it you can transfer it back.
