Bio and Links
Bio Photo Feel free to use my photos for your genealogy research, but please mention that you got the photo from findagrave.

Take photos on sunny days only!
Use a mirror to reflect the sunlight off of the stones lettering. I have a cheap $10.00 mirror that is about 4 feet high. I can hold the mirror in one hand, and take the photo with the other hand.
Another place to find your ancestors gravestone photos is on: just search for their name.

A complete and searchable listing of the Hale collection is now available on To find it, click on "search" at the top of the screen. Bring down the drop down list, and click on "card catalog". Then, in the search box, type in "Hale". Then click on it, and you can do a name search. Be advised that not all names come up, for example, people that are buried in the Fair Haven Union Cemetery in New Haven CT will not show up.

The Old Cove Burying Ground in East Haddam is in need of care, and we need volunteers to help clean up this ancient cemetery.

RE: Robert Coit # 84105708
I wonder if Nancy was a nickname for Anne? I did see that in the records, but everything else I've seen, bios etc., gave her name as Anne, not only Anne but with that middle name of Borradil, spelled all over the board. Her grandmother was Borradil Denison Latimer.

Isn't it fun trying to keep these people straight?

Thanks Irma,

Atwood Gravesite pictures
Thank you for the pictures of the grave sites of Orlo and Maria J Atwood in Cedar Grove Cemetery and for adding the memorial and picture for their daughter, May Josephine. Orlo and Maria are my great grandparents and my grandmother was named after May Josephine.

William Henry Fuller
Hi Irma, I noticed the marker for William Henry Fuller and family. There is a notation about a possible connection to Truman Fuller in Tater Hill Cemetary. He is my 2nd great grand fathers brother. And yes, Truman Fuller born in 1801 was their father. Memorial #46933624. Thank you for all you do. I wish I was closer to Conneciut. I would love to help, but I am in Florida.
I have a great grand father buried in an unmarked grave in Col. Ledyard Cemetary. Do you know if anyone keeps records from those graves?
He died in the 1890's. Thank you. Connie Heskett

Children of David Post & Maria Urquhart Post
The memorials I would like to manage are:

John U. Post 69876529
M. Lucretia Post 69876661
J. Rawson Post 69876511
Isabella S. Post 69876495

They are all great aunts & uncles, siblings of my great-great grandfather Lewis Walter Post. They never married or had children so there will be no links other than what they have now.

RE: Emma Hart Urquhart #74900485
Yes, you're right. There's a William W. Urquhart and his wife Emma Hart, and then their son William W. Urquhart and daughter Emma Kate Urquhart. I thought there was a spousal link from the brother to the sister.

Thank you for finding and photographing the grave of my great-grandfather Frederick Granger Loomis. My relatives and I have been looking for him for years. He died at a young age of a lung infection, which we suspect that he contracted at work. He worked at the piano factory in Ivoryton, where the air was heavy with dust from manufacturing.

Thank you so very much for finding him!

The date for Phillip Hill's birthdate was estimated based on what is on his headstone.

The Mary Dibble Hill Stannard I have listed, I believe is the right Mary. I got the exact birthdate from other trees. I believe the date of 1840 on her headstone is probably a few months off. The actual year was 1839, the headstone date was approximate.
In addition, my Mary Ann Dibble Hill Stannard is buried next to Albert Hill, her 1st husband, according to the "Connecticut Hale Cemetery Inscriptions" for Lower Cemetery.

I hope the above will allow you to accept my edits.

Thanks for your time.
