My direct ancestral surnames include: Abbe, Allen, Atkins, Backus, Bailey, Bassett, Benton, Brown, Buelow, Bumpas, Caswell, Chaffn, Charles, Chase, Clement, Cram, Cross, Damon, Decato, Eaton, Engleshie, Gard, Garnzey, Giguere, Hale, Hayward, Hebard, Howard, Johnson, Lapham, McCowen, Merrifield, Palmer, Pierce, Pike, Pitkin, Ross, Story, Stresseman, Thurber, Towne, Webster, Wheelock, White, Willis and Wright.
With few exceptions, the memorials found in this contributor account were created for members of my direct family but they are part of our extensive genealogy project, which includes many more Find A Grave Memorials. We are family genealogists and our Find A Grave work is driven primarily by our project, but due to the scope of this project, we know that our managed memorials are benefiting thousands of visitors to Find A Grave who are searching for information about their family members. We also make contributions to Find A Grave, outside of our genealogy project. We sincerely thank all of the Find A Grave contributors who have helped us.
