Feel free to use my photos for your genealogy research, but please mention that you got the photo from findagrave. |
When I do headstone hunts, its nice to get a thank-you from the requester! Also, when writing to me, add a salutation at the beginning, and a thank-you at the end! Ignoring simple polite manners will get your request deleted.
Use a mirror to reflect the sunlight off of the stones lettering. I have a cheap $10.00 mirror that is about 4 feet high. I can hold the mirror in one hand, and take the photo with the other hand.
Another place to find your ancestors gravestone photos is on: http://www.flickr.com/ just search for their name.
A complete and searchable listing of the Hale collection is now available on ancestry.com. To find it, click on "search" at the top of the screen.

|Montereygenealogist||Thank you for Pratt pix|

I think it was the Barbour records but also the Connecticut Church Record Abstracts has his baptismal as May 30, 1736 gave the Barbour records some legitimacy.
|Richard Wright||RE: Samuel Wright #103510084|
Concerning the subject Find A Grave memorial, I have found that there was another Samuel Wright born in Vermont in 1770. Since this is the case, I wish to withdraw my request. At the time, I thought the request was valid, but there is no certainty of which Samuel Wright is buried there. My Samuel was also born in 1770 in Stoddard, Cheshire, NH to Silas and Mary Wright, originally from Westford, Massachusetts. Thank you for your challenge, as a Find A Grave contributor, I do not want to inject misinformation into memorials.

Thank you very much for the info on their years. I got the dates from a website that has transcription of Hale Cemetery Records for Cypress Cemetery. I subtracted the years that the site had of their deaths and your find would be correct. I made changes. duhamwilcox.net R.J.

Thank you for the extra effort to get these photos. I try to get her recognized as famous, but it was not accepted.
|Robert Hoadley||RE: Samuel C. Smith|
Silas Nathaniel Havens did register for the draft, but I do not think he served. He became a prominent developer on Staten Island building many homes and a park called "Haven's Esplanade" around a lake. They left no children. Very interesting man. His home was a church he had bought and moved to another location and transformed into his home. I had a heck of a time finding him in the 1850 census, he is listed as Lilas Havers and a female along with his 17 old wife, living with the man who gave him his start in the building industry. Grandpa told me "Uncle Havens" had a lumber yard called "havens' apparently not knowing, or remembering, how well know he was on the Island for so much more. When Silas died, he was buried at Union Cemetery, Lyme, New london Co., CT. Havens, as you might know, was an early CT family. There may have been another Silas that did serve?
