Bio and Links
Bio Photo trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.

Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County. I've been known to wander off to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine given the opportunity.

Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.

Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.

I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.

My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed... Click here to see the memorials I've added in the past few 7 days.

RE: Caleb Marshall (130207088)
The photo that I submitted was right side up, not sideways; I don't know why findagrave does that. However, if you click on the photo and get the full size image, it will display right side up.

Sure...Norwich, VT vital records gives her birth and West Windsor, VT vitals give her death date.

RE: Madalene Jenkins LINDELL, North Thetford,VT
Thank you very much for doing this. I tried but could not figure out how to do it. I have a pic of her I need added at some time but I have no idea how to send the pic to u for u to add it. Maybe u could explain how??? Thank you again for this it really means a lot to me. As for my taking over the memorial I would not know how to do that either. I am really good at finding info on line but that is about all I know about computers! Lea Mitchell

Madalene Jenkins LINDELL, North Thetford,VT
My mother Madalene Alicia Jenkins Martinez Knight Lindell born July 5,1924 in Thetford,VT died Jan.16,2016 in RI and I buried her ashes next to her Grand Parents who raised her. Her grave is on the Left side of the stone (as u look at the stone) for her grand parents John William and Leta Hill Jenkins in the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery in North Thetford,VT. You put their info here on Find A Grave and I would like you to put the info for my mother here also. Madalene was a daughter of Leon Royce JENKINS and Marion Jane Waterman Cook Jenkins Gilbody who also r buried in the same cemetery. I do not know how to put info here on Find A Grave so please add my mother . She has no stone yet but will. Thank you, Lea Mitchell in RI.

I found Enos Ballard's Death Record on Vermont, Vital Records, 1720-1908 through, and it states that he died on June 12, 1899 in Strafford, VT from kidney cancer.
