Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the peace and quiet of cemeteries. (There are no telemarketers calling.) I also love taking pictures. The exercise is at my own pace. The stones are interesting, and they absolutely need to be documented before they are lost to the ravages of time.

I'm 10 generations forward from my Mayflower ancestor George Soule. I'm 13 generations from my New Haven founder Capt. Nathaniel Turner. 13 Generations is 1024 direct ancestors (doesn't count siblings etc.) My husband also has 1024 direct ancestors going back to the Mayflower. That's 2048 direct ancestors. I haven't found them all in the 40+ years I've been researching. But I'm still looking. Thanks to all of you members at Find a Grave, who are making finding their burial places easier.

PLEASE use the EDIT tab for suggestions, corrections and transfers. I'm happy to make changes, but I'm going to ask you for a source, if it's not directly on the stone. (Using the new edit system you can send source information through the "Suggest any other correction or addition" line.) The internet is a wonderful thing for genealogists but it's also very good at spreading misinformation, and I am trying very hard not to spread undocumented genealogy. That's one of the reasons I love Find a Grave, because I can look directly at a gravestone and see exactly what it says and don't have to depend on second and third hand information. Happy hunting.

PHOTOS OF GRAVESTONES. Please feel free to use mine, that's why I took them. I do like to get credit, though. "ASB"

PHOTOS OF PEOPLE. I've posted them to be enjoyed by visitors to Find a Grave. I was a little taken aback to see my mother's photo on Ancestry. So you're welcome to use them, for your personal use, but I would appreciate it, if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites.

Thank you for the transfers, although I wasn't expecting you to do that. I'm really happy that you had them in Find A Grave, and that you had pictures of their tombstones, etc.

Keep up the good work, which I'm sure helps a lot of people out.

William Booth #112884738

I know that William's tombstone says that he was born in 1829, but according to the family genealogy, he was supposedly actually born on Dec. 4, 1828. Could you possibly make a note of that in his bio???

Wow, thank you so much for the fantastic photos. I really appreciate your time and effort to help me with these requests. I would like to ask your permission to post them on ancestry with photo credit to yourself. Please let me know if this would be okay with you. Thanks again, Doris

Patience Younglove
Thank you for your kindness in fixing Patience Younglove's memorial. I think everything is fixed now.

I have done the very same thing so I know how easy it is to overlook or not find a name.
God Bless you.

RE I try very hard not to create duplicates, but sometimes I mess up. Copy whatever info you want off the memorial. I'll add my photos and then delete mine.

RE: Hiram Joiner 97775340
Hello - I found Hiram Joiner in the 1860 census of Springfield Twp., Bradford Co., Pennsylvania. He was aged 36 years and born in New York. I found an American Civil War military record for Hiram that states he enlisted on 13 Jan 1864, aged 39 years. Those two data points are all that I have for Hiram's year of birth, i.e., nothing firm.

Also, as far as I know I am not related to your Frederick M. Newell (1866-1900).

Thanks for all the past transfers and memorial updates that I've suggested. Good luck on your research.

RE: Zepherin
call the southbridge ma town hall and verify that you will see that he had a son named George and that his dad was named George but he himself was not George wrong person ( unless you have a copy of his birth certificate to prove that this is a mystery to me. Check the dates of birth you may be looking at a different person with close name. ZEPHIRIN S. NORMANDIN a/k/a Zepherin Normandin also known as ZEPHRY NORMANDIN is my grandfather. As I said his dads name was George and also he and my grandmother had a son named George.

BTW Mary Mix
BTW, since Mary's widowed husband, Rev. Stephen Mix, died only four years after Mary and the family name of Mix is correctly used his gravestone, if I had been a surviving member of the family I surely would have hired a different stone cutter than the one used for Mary's gravestone, or at least made sure the surname on my father Stephen's gravestone was Mix, not Meeks.
