I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don't ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile - contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

Permission has been given to to use my photos for their excellent site.
YES - you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to
However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site or used for commercial publication without permission.

I love to have additional information to add to the memorials. In winter I go through what I have put up and link families, find additional dates, etc. Although it looks like I have more than I can handle, I have had no problem adding suggested information. I have 35 years of experience in family history research and will be happy to add links or more biographical information on your family.

If you are requesting a photo - all information is helpful. Many people only have flat to the ground memorials, and they are difficult to find. If you know of other family names that might be close by, that is very helpful in large cemeteries. Also if your memorial served in the military, that is very helpful as most cemeteries commemorate with a flag.

I love the challenge of photographing really old stones. I also love the zincs - which were an inexpensive product for the time but have outlasted some of the more expensive marbles and granites. The zincs were very popular during the Prohibition Era because the insides were hollow and easily accessible.

The people we ~meet~ in these resting places are integral in putting together family history. The memorial may be all that is left.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, taken the time to send me information, added their own memorials, found a dupe or two, and have been kind and respectful.

It is so important that if you have an old cemetery near you, to get these stones recorded before weather and/or vandals get to them.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★★ ☆
I do try to wipe off debris and pull some overgrown grass out of the way, but I will not harm the stone in any way. Plus I do not pull up flowers, even if they are wilted.
It's a bit of work to take the photos, re size and sometimes enhance the lettering to be made readable, enter names and upload the photos. I do this lovingly. Please respect that.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★
I have a camera that takes good photos,however the condition of the stone may make it unreadable or the stone is so damaged that there is no information. Bright sunny days might be good for walks but can wash out headstone inscriptions. I do retakes a lot.

RE: Loomis Norton
Thank you for letting me know. I will try to contract the correct submitter.

Simeon Norton 1770-1818 Connecticut
I am a descendant of Simeon Norton, who was married to Charlotte Loomis and resided in Suffield, Connecticut and West Springfield (now Agawan) Massachusetts.
There are actually two men by the name of Simeon Norton, both born in Connecticut in 1770. I have found documentation on both. It is very easy to confuse the two men.
Simeon Norton, born 22 April 1770 in Suffield, Hartford County, Connecticut was the son of Simeon Norton and Mary Adams. He married 1st - Charlotte Loomis on 25 December 1790 in West Springfield, Hampden, Massachusetts. They were the parents of Polly Norton, b. 1791; Simeon Norton, b. 1793; Hannah Norton b. 1795; Fanny Norton b. 1797; Charlotte Norton b. 1799; Harvey Norton b. 1802 and Benjamin Copley Norton b. 1804.
Charlotte Loomis Norton died 19 March 1805 and Simeon Norton married 2nd to Sarah Rumril and 3rd to Wealthy (Walta) Pyncheon in 1838.
In August 1859, Benjamin Copley Norton gave a written deposition in the Probate estate of Persis Norton Eddy (who died owning land and having no children) that established the known heirs of Persis Norton, namely the children and grandchildren of the siblings of Persis Eddy. In that document, Benjamin states that his father was Simeon Norton, brother of Persis Eddy, and that Simeon Norton had died "13 years ago, last March". This would calculate to be March of 1846.

Simeon Norton baptized 27 May 1770 in Berlin, Hartford County, Connecticut, was the son of Elnathan Norton and wife Rachel.
This Simeon Norton, of Berlin, Connecticut, died 2 Oct 1818 at age 48 and is buried in the Maple Cemetery in Berlin, Hartford County, Connecticut. He apparently did not marry, or the name of his wife is unknown.

We have not yet found a grave for Simeon Norton, husband of Charlotte Loomis.

If you agree with our research, could you please change the "Find a Grave" entry so that Charlotte Loomis is no longer listed as the wife of Simeon Norton who died in 1818 in Berlin, Connecticut?

Thank you very much,
Laraine Clark
