Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history and its many branches for more years than I care to remember, and have always had a love of cemeteries! Now into my sixth decade, I live in the great state of Nevada, and am looking forward to posting my research info on this site. My focus, at the moment, is working on an accurate list of those pioneers who are interred in the Dayton, Lyon County, Cemetery. I would also like to add that I am relinquishing in advance any copyright claim to the photos and information that I have taken or posted on this site, and that my photos and information may be added to any other database or website (please just properly credit the Find A Grave database)

RE: Re: Leete Changes
Karen. Thanks for the offer to transfer to my management Leete memorials. I would love that.

Yes, I descend from William Leete, the first governor of Connecticut, and from his son Andrew Leete. Andrew made a name for himself by whisking away the charter that made Connecticut freedom from England. He did it in the darkness of night. The King of England changed his mind and sent representatives from England to Connecticut to take back the charter and reclaiming Connecticut for England. But grandpa Andrew hid the charter in a hollow in an old oak tree in the town. That act saved Connecticut from the King. That became famously known as the Charter Oak and was long revered. There are towns in the USA named for that event, such as Charter Oak, Iowa.

About five or six years ago the US Mint issues quarters with each state's name and symbol on it. Look at the Connecticut 25 piece. You'll see that Oak tree on it. My grandpa Andrew Leete did a good thing.

So yes, I am related to the Leetes, and proudly so.

Thanks Karen. You are being good to this old preacher! Keith in Omaha. #4886444

Eva Bonham, Dayton Cemetery
Karen,

Parents of Eva Bonham are incorrect. Homer Bonham married Ellen Pollard in 1877. I have her parents as John Bonham and Martha Sutcliff. Only proof I have is in the accounting for living and total children from 1900 census. In addition, vitals for Homer W. Bonham appear to be for some other person. Any chance you could get control of that memorial?

Gino Martini
Hi Karen!

I've been meaning to fix up Gino's obit, but unfortunately it looks like I'm going to be at work/school nonstop for the next few days, so I went ahead and transferred him back to you so you can get him all sorted out. Hopefully that's cool with you :-)

RE: Re: The Martini's
Woo! Thanks for the transfers :-D. I added my pictures of Gino and Oliva's stones, and I just noticed their exact death dates are inscribed -- Gino died June 13, 1963 and Olive died October 22, 1977.
