Bio Photo Hi!
My name is Jerri, and I live in Thurston Co., Washington. Genealogy has been my hobby for almost 40 years. I discovered Find A Grave during a recent project for the DAR, and what a great way to help other genealogists and researchers! This is a perfect opportunity for anyone to document those deteriorating tombstones in their area, as well as helping others who live too far away to do it themselves!

The project I helped with was tasked with locating and documenting the burial place of 767 very special DAR members, who were actually daughters of Revolutionary War Patriots. We found almost all of them, and they are grouped in virtual cemeteries by the state in which they were buried.

Townsend Cemetery
The Moses Townsend Cemetery, Crown Point, Essex Co, NY is located on the North Side of the Sam Curran Road, approx. 3/4 of a mile from the intersection with County Route 7. It is on private property, so visitors should be courteous & ask permission at the adjacent house.

Dear Mrs. Jerri ___ ,

Thanks for the eNote my name was shown, on the Memorial you mentioned, and still is the one give to me at birth Maam. Sorry I could not find your full one only a first and s/n of you.

Hope all is well out there in Thurston County, WASHINGTON STATE.

I have spent thousands of hours helping the SAR/DAR. We have created/set up fully endowed scholarships also.

The DAR is a wonderful group. Members of my families have been members since Day one some still are very active. I did what you asked out of courtesy per your request, but NOT Required by thye national. It was added by me on the Memorial May the Fifth , 2013. You made the memorial in A.D. 2009. Yet I was the first to leave a flower and prayer on it. Maybe when you make the memorials you can leave a flower/prayer/note on each. As you saw I was the first on that memorial back on A.D. 05/06/2013. Now I took it off as per your request.

You I see forget to put three important letters on most Women you listed who were married.

Yes the Mrs. they had/have. I hope you add this vital Mrs. title.

James Tyler Ames, Find A Grave Memorial# 29902860
The Ames Manufacturing Company was located in Chicopee, MA, not Springfield, and still exists today as Ames Privilege, an apartment building.

Chicopee author and historian Jacqueline T. Lynch has published a new book on a local company that played an influential role in arms production during the Civil War. Lynch's book, "The Ames Manufacturing Company of Chicopee, Massachusetts a Northern Factory Town's Perspective on the Civil War," tells various stories about Ames' involvement in the war and the factory's workers, who went on to make names for themselves.

Real Daughter's graves
Hi Genibug,

I am working on a new website for Nebraska State DAR. On the website, I am adding a page for each of the real daughters buried in our region of the country (mostly Nebraska). I was wondering if I could use some of your photos for the website and give you credit by adding Photo by Genibug (or another name if you wish).

Great of you do take on the Real Daughters project!!!

Best regards,

Shari Frey

Thanks for doing the links so promptly. I'm trying to get the links between the Gilbert, Field, and Holly families made and bio information added. All the memorial managers have been a big help

I just left a piece on Mary Cobb that I came across. Thought you'd be interested. It's difficult to read. Let me know if you'd like me to type it out.
