Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the peace and quiet of cemeteries. (There are no telemarketers calling.) I also love taking pictures. The exercise is at my own pace. The stones are interesting, and they absolutely need to be documented before they are lost to the ravages of time.

I'm 10 generations forward from my Mayflower ancestor George Soule. I'm 13 generations from my New Haven founder Capt. Nathaniel Turner. 13 Generations is 1024 direct ancestors (doesn't count siblings etc.) My husband also has 1024 direct ancestors going back to the Mayflower. That's 2048 direct ancestors. I haven't found them all in the 40+ years I've been researching. But I'm still looking. Thanks to all of you members at Find a Grave, who are making finding their burial places easier.

PLEASE use the EDIT tab for suggestions, corrections and transfers. I'm happy to make changes, but I'm going to ask you for a source, if it's not directly on the stone. (Using the new edit system you can send source information through the "Suggest any other correction or addition" line.) The internet is a wonderful thing for genealogists but it's also very good at spreading misinformation, and I am trying very hard not to spread undocumented genealogy. That's one of the reasons I love Find a Grave, because I can look directly at a gravestone and see exactly what it says and don't have to depend on second and third hand information. Happy hunting.

PHOTOS OF GRAVESTONES. Please feel free to use mine, that's why I took them. I do like to get credit, though. "ASB"

PHOTOS OF PEOPLE. I've posted them to be enjoyed by visitors to Find a Grave. I was a little taken aback to see my mother's photo on Ancestry. So you're welcome to use them, for your personal use, but I would appreciate it, if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites.

If the tombstone was loose, I pulled it up and out of the ground to reveal the dates, then I put it back into the same hole. I don't think anyone has done anything to repair the broken stones. If the tombstone was not easily removed from the ground, I did not use any tools to unearth, since I didn't have any permission to do so. There are still several stones that could be unearthed to reveal more information if someone had the permission to do so.

Thank you
Dear ASB, thank you for all your work. I simply cannot imagine 'managing' thousands of f.a.g. sites. I was delighted to do a search and find that my relative had been added by you!

When you're right you're right. Sorry for the misinformation.

RE: George McLean 93831473
No, I'm not related. I was just adding some people to a family tree when I noticed George's birthdate happened to correspond to his marriage date that I got from another site.

Thanks for making the change so quickly.
