|Bio and Links|
As a child, my mother was always bringing us on Cemetery hunts and we spent many hours making grave rubbings and walking thru the monuments . I get great satisfaction in being a Find a Grave volunteer and am on my own search for my family who went before me and helped to make my life the blessing that it is. I'm gratified to know that I am able to unite in such a small way, families who are in search of each other.|
Family names I am researching are Curtis, Hollis, Crofut, Burt, Gates, Melow, Sutherland, Watts, McKay, Cady, Sherwood, Pitts, Parker, Thompson, Pyle to name a few.
Thank you to everyone who contributes to this wonderful website and the intensely important business of perpetuating history by documenting the people and their contributions that have gone and lived before us, gave us life, and a reason to live. God Bless you all.
If you have time please visit my family's war veterans and a very special young man who I had the privilidge of knowing, Lt. Timothy Steele who died in Afganistan.
Timothy James Steele
Orson B Curtis
Roswell B Curtis
Sgt. Joseph Gates
Elmer M. Hollis

|Panzyzz||RE: Ethan and Urban Burt|
You're welcome. Did you notice Urban's name is spelled Erba? It is always interesting how spellings can be different than what old records show. Glad I could help.

I don't remember, but I believe I did take a number of different photographs of the column. Let me see if I can find them again and check for you. I'll let you know what I find out.
|AuntieJ||Joseph P Foss|
The date of birth that I used (20 Dec 1841) came from Joseph's death record which was indexed on ancestry.com.
On ancestry.com, there is a family tree called Foss Family Tree and his birth date is listed there as 16 Dec 1842. There is no source cited.
You have provided a third date, from records you found at the Cary Library (1 Dec 1842). Was it a birth record that you found?
As you know, recordkeeping back in those days was fairly hit-or-miss and often based on years old recollections. I am most interested to know what records you found.
As for Joseph's military affiliation, in addition to Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Maine, the application (dated 1932) for his headstone lists him as a member of the 7th infantry. This information was verified by the War Department. It's entirely possible an error was made at the foundry... we've found a number of such mistakes while researching other veterans.
Thank you for providing a photo of Joseph's final resting place.

Thanks for getting a picture of William Haskell's stone. Much appreciated!
Thank you so much for taking pictures of my 5 ancestors, I truly appreciate it since I am on the west coast. Did you happen to notice Thomas Megquier (born 1888) buried near any of the burials you took? He was the the oldest of Ezra & Rebecca Jane Dickinson & I can't find record of him after 1910.
