Bio and Links
I love history, genealogy, and photography, and have fond memories of my grandfather taking me to his favorite cemetery and telling stories of all the people he knew. But it wasn't until I was researching the history of our house(s) that I found myself trying to figure out whether previous owners had stuck around and were buried in local cemeteries. I took a photo and then another and another.

I love hearing from people all around the world who are looking for a loved one or a long lost relative.

If everyone who died in a war, declared or undeclared, was listed on FAG, there would be no more wars. I love the idea that people can be remembered, forever.

RE: Briggs Thomas at Richmond Cemetery
Thanks for the reply. I misspelled Noyes, I always do that. Mason was their late hatch. There are 12 years between him and Claressa. My grand-mother Martha Coquillette Valentine was named after Mason's daughter. Mason's name is his mothers maiden name.
More on Abijah, his sons William and John are at Richmond Cemetery.

Thanks again,
Barry Valentine

Briggs Thomas
Other children in Richmond Cemetery are:
Mary Thomas Noyse
Mason Thomas
While Abijah Thomas (1825-1875) died at Richmond but does not show he is buried there. Possibly his grave is unmarked? I know of no other place he could be.
Thank you for your attention.

John Dowie
Hi there!

John Dowie is not buried in Lake Forest Cemetery by his wife Helen. There is a headstone there - with no death date. I inquired at the office, and they indicated he is not there, and that the plot where Helen Dowie is buried and John's headstone was owned by Mr and Mrs. Low - who were also from Scotland. If you have any information as to where John is buried, I'd love to know!!

thank you!
