Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Middlebury's Porter Hospital and always lived in Bristol VT. I have genealogies of many of our families in Chittenden and Addison County. I live with my wife, Denny, and sons Jonathan and Jacob. Don't be afraid to ask me to turn over any of the memorials. You are welcome to use my pictures but photo credits would be nice. I am happy to transfer anyone not related to me so that they can go to someone that knows them. I will not delete all grave pics to make room for family pics.

****Please use the EDIT button for additions, transfers and corrections*****
Please do not move your Burial Unknown into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my duplicate. Memorials listed in the incorrect cemetery also fall under the category of an Unknown Burial because the burial place was obviously unknown if the person is listed in the wrong cemetery. For further information on this, please refer to how Find a Grave handles duplicate memorials. I do also make mistakes but this is find a grave site not add an obituary.

I was just looking at memorials in the Monkton Friends Cemetery and I want to commend your photo attached to Elijah Barton's memorial. When blown up, it is beautiful and almost looks like a painting.

Hello Alan, First of all thank you so much for all of the information you have posted regarding the Porters. I descend from Lovina Powers Porter and Oliver Alford. I am going to Vermont, Maine, UPstate NY and New Hampshire on vacation Sept 1 ,2015. I will be going to Ferrisburg and Charlestown. Can you tell me how to get to the cemetery and any other "land marks" of the Porters? Thanks again,Debra McKrill

Anna Sterling Boardman Memorial #116745405
Per your request to use the "edit" tab to make corrections, I have updated the info for Anna Sterling Boardman Memorial #116745405, to the best of my ability. Please know that the "Anna S." on the tombstone of Royal Hyman Boardman Memorial #116744670, is not his daughter, but rather his 2nd wife, Anna Salome Schmidt, born 6 MAR 1894 in Newark, Wayne, New York, USA. They were married in New Hampshire in 1946.
You are correct that the daughter of Cora (Memorial# 116744797) and Royal (memorial #116744670) is Anna Sterling Boardman who was born in Chesaw, Okanogan, Washington, USA and married Gordon Dunham in 1931. However, her actual date of birth was 16 JUN 1908 and her date of death was 11 NOV 1994 in Pittsfield, Berkshire, Massachusetts, USA. At this time, I do not know where Anna and her husband Gordon are buried.
Although I was able to correct the name, dates of birth and death and the relationship status of Memorial #116745405, I am not able to edit the comments that were placed in her memorial.
I thank you for all of the efforts you have taken to post pictures of headstones and set-up memorials for all of the relatives out there who are links to our past :)
Most Appreciatively,

Hi Alan,

Here's John and Clarissa's marriage record on familysearch:

I don't know why her death record says "Eastman". Possibly a middle name (E.), or just an error.

And here's her birth card:

(Note "Cushman" is mistranscribed.)

RE: Levi Davenport
My husband's ancestors are buried in that cemetery, the land for it was given from the original Burritt farm. I can't understand why people add a grave when one is already there. Thanks for all your hard work. Heading to Vermont, then Maine next week. Judy

I agree WHOLEHEARTEDLY with your comment about people moving their "burial unknown" memorials into the correct cemetery after seeing your memorial, and then asking you to delete your "duplicate"!!! I have had the same thing happen to me several times, and I always call them on it. Afterall, this is Find-A-GRAVE, not Find-A-Memorial! If I've done the work to actually locate a gravesite, check the cemetery listing to avoid a duplicate, and then create a memorial... it's staying! Luckily, the moderators can see the edits they made to move their "dummy" memorial and will allow the person who had the correct burial location first to remain manager of the memorial. Well said, Alan!

Timothy Allen #96959300
Hi again, it looks like F-A-G has merged the two Timothy Allen memorials (for both cemeteries) to the one managed by you. You might want to rearrange the images some and add a bit to your discussion, and perhaps provide a link somewhere in the text to the other cemetery page. Plugging in the other memorial number just directs views back to your memorial now. I have no idea where he's actually buried, but it's good to be consistent! :-)
