Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been our family's genealogist/historian for over 40 years, and many of these folks I've added to "findagrave" are my family and friends.

Howard Street Cemetery in Northboro, MA is the location of our main family lots, so I have spent many hours there. While there I try to add any grave photos and names of those that appear to be missing from the "findagrave" site. If any of your family are in Howard Street I will gladly turn over management if you wish.

I love to research original settlers for the Tucson, AZ area. Most of the original graves are long gone, including any identifying markers. But the city managed to relocate remains to several different cemeteries in this area, and the stories of many of these pioneers live on. It is my pleasure to merge the stories of the persons with their final resting places.

For certain, Findagrave can be confusing but for the greater part, it has cleared up many of my family mysteries concerning those who moved away & thought died young or lost in a blizzard.
Agnes didn't show up in your cemetery search because her burial is "unknown". Records do indicate John might not be buried in a Catholic churchyard.
You say Joseph had a brother named John, which you descend from. I'd love to see your line, please. Agnes is my mother's 9th great-grandmother and I welcome you as a cousin. Have you communicated with the official Loomis record keeper and what did you learn ?
I hope you can enlighten me more about our wonderful, huge & growing family. Thanks
Oh, I wish you'd found my memorial before you created yours, maybe tried a few more searches because of the descendants who have posted beautiful memorials for both sites. I'd hate to delete even one of their posts. Maybe Findagrave can merge the flowers & notes (someday)

Eng, Whites
I know this is WAY out of the guidelines for transferring memorials, but I have to ask, are the four Whites that you created Memorials for in Eng, Somerset Co., South Petherton, St Peter and Paul, in your family line?

Robert Jr. Robert II, Joan West White, and Alice Rich White. [130179102]

If they are! Hi cousin.. LOL
I also have edits for you if they are.

I'm asking because if there not, I would like to ask to take over there management. I know there no requirement to do so. They are in my direct line from my grandmother Lousania White, but way way back.

Thank You for posting them.

RE: Charles Gray 45073121
I forgot to mention Lena was originally buried in a mausoleum and it caved in and they put all the people in it, into a common grave, if they couldn't contact family members. I've got the actual full obituary if you want it & some other documents, just e-mail me at Oh, and thank you for the use of the photo's. Charles was sure an elegant looking man.

RE: 112627110
HI, Carolyn - I am a direct descendant of Humphrey Barrett, Sr. (112627110) and Mary as well! That makes us cousins.

I read your bio for Humphrey Sr. (1590-1662)

1) It states:
"Born and married in England. Immigrated to Boston around 1660. Interred with his wife Mary at South Burying Ground per family history"

What sources did you reference for the date of immigration? Please see the bio for Humphrey's son, Humphrey Barrett Jr., which has extracts from Stearns and Swain regarding the family's immigration history.

What is the "family history" that has been propagated regarding the burial locations for Humphrey Sr. and Mary? Is this a verbal narrative? Did this come through members of your family line, or did you interview other relatives, and who?

2) The message you left on my board about Humphrey Jr. (22405547) stated:

"Middlesex records indicate son Humphrey was a grown man when he arrived with his parents in Mass., so 1640 would be a problem as that would make him only 10 years old??"

Yes. Humphrey Jr. was born about 1630 in England, making him approximately 10 years old when he and his family arrived in the Colonies.

To which Middlesex records do you refer that state "Humphrey was a grown man when he arrived with his parents in Mass."?

Per page 45 of Torrey's "New England marriages Prior to 1700," Humphrey Jr. married Elizabeth Paine/Payne on 17 Jul 1661 and, after her death, married Mary Potter on 23 Mar 1674/5. He died 3 Jan 1715 in Concord, MA. In addition, the transcription of his headstone states he is 86 at the time of his death "HERE LYES THE | BODY OF | DEAcon HUMPERY | BARRET AGED | 86 YEARS WHO | DEPARTED THIS | LIFE JANUARY | THE 3d 1715 | The Memeory of Ye Just is Blessed."

Any information you can provide to clarify your theory that the Humphrey Barrett "Immigrated to Boston around 1660" would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Jv

Hi There,

I see you have her mother as Margaret Haslonde. Until I was using I know that there is a Knight in a Bray family. I used this LDS website*. It's a great tool to figure out some important lines.
Please go to the website your self to see if you come to a differnt conclusion.


To tried to follow the lines as stated in the trees as mentioned above, as well what you have. I cannot find any of the same connections. Maybe if you let me know exactly where you found your data that I can look up myself and see if from your angle.

Best Regards,
Joy C.
