Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt.

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship to the dearly departed. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. I've been burned too many times by people requesting out-of-guidelines transfers and then never adding so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.

I WILL NOT link to just "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.

If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.

My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.

Sources for additional memorial information include:
Suggest A Correction, NEHGS,,, NARA, other on-line sources, personal library, obituaries, newspaper items, etc.

Asa Pettengill # 62860819
I am a descendent of Asa Pettengill. You manage a memorial for an Asa Pettengill that is linked to my other ancestors, however I have never seen any confirmation as to his place or date of death. You also have him linked to children we have not found listed before. I'm not saying it's wrong - I'll be thrilled with the information if it is correct. Can you tell me where you came by the information? That way I can determine if this is indeed 'my' Asa? Thank you very much.

RE: Ansel Bradford
Hi...which Patriot did you go into DAR under? I realize you are not a Bradford. I went in under Benanuel Bonfoy (different spellings too) His daughter, Concurrence Bonfoy Bradford, was my 6th gen. descendant under Wm. Bradford. She married Robert W. Bradford.

I love genealogy. :o)

RE: Photo for Ansel Bradford
I am sending them along...I have two or three. They are very tiny tin type photos. If you have Photo Shop, you may be able to enlarge the prints and the printed info. :o) If you are able to enlarge them, please let me know and send copies to my private email. and include Ansel Bradford in comments.

Thanks so much.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention, I had re-photographed the cemetery, after being not so happy with my original wintery pics, and had uploaded hundreds that day, pretty much every headstone. Maybe I was little tired. It is in fact his son's photo and you will find the identical photo on his memorial. I will get out my external drive and find Daniel's proper photo. Jim

RE: Inscription Selah Wright
Visually it's hard to read. Second, inscriptions should be listed line by line. Much easier to read.

Brad Johnson
Stephen Johnson of Hadley (1762-1845)
Thank you so much for your dedicated work.

I don't see any way that Stephen Johnson of Hadley is the son of Isaac and Abigail Shipman Johnson instead of Isaac and Elizabeth Beal Johnson, given that
1) there is a record of Stephen being born to Isaac & Elizabeth
2) Isaac & Elizabeth repaired to Hadley and they and Stephen are buried in Hockanum Cemetery.
3) Isaac of Isaac & Elizabeth was born c 1735 whereas Isaac of Isaac & Abigail was born 1731.

Deanna Beckmann
Good Day, I have been searching for family for just a short time & I have stumble across that you added one for Beckmann, the grave memorial # is 40565742 you added the record back in August of 2009. I was wondering if you saw any other Beckmann's in the same Cemetery? I have a Aunt that is buried there I think, her name would is Ruth Virginia Beckmann (maybe spelt like Beckman)her Birth 9 Feb 1923 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Death 2 Nov 1929 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. I was in hopes that if you live close that maybe you could take a look for me. I am from Kansas that is why I am asking you.

Thank you for your time
