I started by adding my relatives, but now I'm happily addicted to bringing the dead to life on-line.

|Cara||RE: Patrick Finerty|
Thanks I'll try to find it online

Sorry to spoil anything for you. I did not see the show you are talking about. I came across the Finnerty brothers while looking for another Patrick Finnerty in Boston (there are a lot of them) and thought it was interesting and thought I would send in the information I found.
Again I'm sorry.

|Fred Masterton||RE: Richard O'Leary in Eastport|
Thanks much for your reply and your research! I need to get up to Eastport once I am retired, which might be pretty soon if I continue to do genealogical research on company time. There are lots of stories associated with that branch of my family. One story is that Jeremiah and Richard's mother (the Richard born in 1812)was part of a royal family, but was disowned after she married their father, the coachman (can you say Downton Abbey?). The other story is that Richard was educated at Trinity College in Dublin, although nothing in his subsequent life in the United States indicates that he was college educated.
|Fred Masterton||Richard O'Leary in Eastport|
For the Richard O'Leary grave in Hillside Cemetery in Eastport, ME, I believe you have information on two different Richard O'Leary's. My information has it that Jeremiah O'Leary had both a son Richard who is the one listed on the grave marker plus a brother Richard, born in 1812 in Ireland, died 1897 in Eastport.
I cannot find any grave listing for Jeremiah's brother Richard in Eastport, although he is supposedly buried there in the "Catholic Cemetery". Have all the graves in the Eastport cemeteries been cataloged?

|meist||rev turner and wife|
hi susan, i think i have figured out who shares the marker with rev edward turner and rachel turner in robbinston ridge cemetery. i think it's rachel's maternal aunt, aseneth (bailey) hodgkins b: 13 aug 1799 in Albion, Kennebec, Maine. her husband was daniel hodgkins. i haven't found anything else yet, but i believe this is who is there. t~marie

|Helen Currie||RE: Harry Smith/Helen Trafton|
Sorry about that after I sent it to you I realized you already had the same information I had. I was working on the line late last night burning the midnight oil.
Thank you so much for the photos! I will probably never get to see the grave markers in person, so am very happy you took the time to do this for me. Thanks!

|meist||RE: Edward Turner children|
Thank you very much. I think this might be another of Edward and Rachel Turner's children but the dates posted conflict. i wonder if the dates posted here match the ones one the marker? And father is listed as Rev E R Turner. Was R mistaken for H? I don't know, I cant see from here... lol I know Amassa Turner passed at the Maine Insane Hospital he was there due to epilepsy. Levi and Abraham passed in Massachusetts, Levi was cremated. I don't know where he/they were finally placed. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Turner&GSfn=j&GSmn=r&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=23&GSob=n&GRid=106580615&df=all&
Thank you again,

|Susan ||RE: Frederic Dightman|
Thank you I will. My what a daunting bunch. But in all of this I found my ggf uncle..which led me to a dna match for one of the uncle's daughter's who just happened to be the ggm of my dna match.
His father who had married into that family was in Honolulu for 3 months. We had so much fun having lunches. His son even showed up for lunch. I chat on Facebook with the one son who found me. Since they all live in British Columbia it will be easy to get together.
As a side note the 90 yr old father couldn''t believe how I resembled his now deceased wife's Dykeman family.
Im trying to fill in the blanks on Richard's children. And then anothers that 2 Dechman males had been working on. The still carry the Dechman name.
Also the man in Scotland is trying to figure out how we all fit into his large clan.
