Bio and Links
Bio Photo I try to be as accurate as possible with my submissions. If you find any errors contact me. use the "Edit" tab at the memorial and then "Suggest a correction" to send me any updated information or corrections.

IMPORTANT: make sure you include an email address or have the ability to be contacted when sending corrections. Sometimes I have been sent a correction that has a typo or error and I may need to contact you to verify the information

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives, This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren only!
Any non-direct relatives ,(aunts, uncles, cousins), 2nd great grandparents & beyond are not required to be transferred.

Explain your relationship in the request!

I receive hundreds of edits a week and generally except. If something is incorrect with relationships just send me a message and I will remove.

Joel Spencer, Bashan Lake Cemetery
John, would you be willing to transfer management for Joel Spencer and his wife Anna Mitchell Spencer (1766-1840)? I am a direct ancestor to Joel and am a DAR member, thanks to his dedicated service in the Revolutionary War.
Best wishes,
Sandra Nuhn

I'm sorry, the suggested birth/death dates were in error. They were meant for Asa - I was distracted.

Ebenezer Holmes
According to The descendants of George Holmes of Roxbury, 1594-1908 by George Arthur Gray (1908), Ebenezer Holmes #80970220 (1760-1797) is the son of Ebenezer Holmes #70078995 (1728-1797), who is buried in the same cemetery. They seem to have died within several days of each other but no explanation is given.

The wives of the two Ebenezers do not currently seem to have findagrave memorials. The elder Ebenezer was married to Lucy Nicols and the younger Ebenezer was married to Serena Dresser.

Ebenezer Holmes #80970220 (1760-1797) is the grandson of Jehoshaphat Holmes (#70078625) and Sarah Waldo (#80970483), both of whom are buried in the same cemetery as well.

I found this while researching a different Ebenezer Holmes and thought I would pass it on.

Thank you so much for the two transfers! I really appreciate it.

I am going to send you an edit adding parents for Caroline A Baird. Her last name was misspelled at the cemetery.

Thank you for the memorials you have created for the Civil War veterans in this cemetery. I am researching the 2nd Connecticut Heavy Artillery and have been adding headstone pictures to their memorials and other veterans memorials you created. Please let me know if you have any comments on the photos and thanks again, JIM
