Bio Photo Mayflower Connection: I descend from the following
Degory Priest, Francis Eaton, John Alden,Priscilla Mullins, Myles Standish, Peter Brown, Francis Cooke, George Soule, Isaac Allerton, Richard Warren, through my father, Member 27436, Society of Mayflower Descendants.

My uncle, Carl Glee Smith Jr is memorialized at Manila American Cemetery and Memorial in the Philippines. His life was lost during Typhoon Cobra, December 18, 1944 when three ships went down, USS Hull, USS Monaghan and his ship the USS Spence. I have attempted to leave notes at each of the memorials for the 793 sailors who lost their lives that day. I also see many other memorials that no one has left flowers or honored them, I am also honoring those as I have time. There are over 44,033 memorials at that cemetery. May God bless the thousands of families who suffered loss during WW II.

I am attempting to link many of Smith burials in an effort to help those who are just starting their family search venture. Descending from four Smith branches is a challenge. At the present time, I am linking Smiths from several states from Vermont, New York,Ohio to Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. From Virginia through Kentucky to Arkansas. From Georgia, Arkansas to Texas.

In addition, I am documenting my Jones from New Hampshire, through Ohio, Illinois to Nebraska.

A few of my family lines are Blatherwick, Farrow, Gilbert, Wood, Kelsey, Evans, Blake, Cady, Watkins, Stewart, McCormick, Jones, Stiles, McDermott, Hoffman, Smith, Black, Brazle, Roth, Martin, Cole, Morgan, Oswalt

If you use my personal photos, please give me credit for the photo, this includes family photos posted as well as cemetery photos. Thank you.

I will consifer transferring memorials that are your direct family, but not my family line. I am not into numbers and am happy to share my work. I love to link family members and to know a bit about the person.

RE: Katie Black Memorial
Again, three devices have shown the pictures to be right-side up.

RE: S Elizabeth Motley Black Memorial
I have looked at the memorial on two computers and my smart phone now. Not a single device shows the pictures upside down.

RE: William G Bussey
I am away from home. I am not sure at all how the pictures posted upside down. I promise I will get them corrected as soon as I home & back on a "real" computer. (I am posting this from my phone).

Vickye, I was wondering what information you used to connect John, Memorial #126913370, to have as his parents Hugh and Catherine Watson Gardner
Any help would be appreciated.
All the Best, Jim Gardner

I have a picture of a tombstone for Sarah young who died Oct. 17, 1860. I took it at Center Cemetery, East Hartford Ct but it seems to be the same person you have listed in Jewett City. I will post the photo so you can take a look.

You're welcome. It was a beautiful day to be out wandering around getting some exercise and fulfill some requests.

I've never had that privilege, but would enjoy it sometime in the future if we're ever out that way.

Thanks also for Mamie's tombstone photo, which was "perfectly" taken and "posted." You do very nice work.

Hi Vickye,
You are very kind to let me know where she is buried and give me the opportunity to transfer her memorial. I have requested a photo of her tombstone so that you will get credit.
