|Bio and Links|
I am a retired newspaper editor in Ridgefield, Conn., and have written extensively about the town's history (see website, RidgefieldHistory.com). I am trying to add as many Ridgefield graves and/or photos as possible, supplementing the fine work of others, particularly Gary Boughton and Karen Kelly plus, at St Mary, Donna Barber. (I am also working on cemeteries in Groton, Vt., Berryville, Va., and Hilton Head Island, S.C., which I occasionally visit as well as certain other cemeteries in Danbury and Wilton, Conn.)|
REQUESTS: I am happy to update memorials with more information, especially biographical.
If you are interested in taking over a memorial, tell me about your relationship and why you want to manage the memorial.
RIDGEFIELD OBITUARIES: I can help with obituary reprints, as explained on RidgefieldHistory.com under "Obituaries." You will also find there the complete Ridgefield Library index of Ridgefield Press obituaries published between 1875 and 1999, plus obituaries that appeared since 2000.
PHOTO NOTE: All photos by me are copyrighted. You are free to employ them for personal use, such as in your genealogy, or in a family or local history website; however, they may not be used for any commercial or profit-making purpose without my permission.
MY RESEARCH interests include the families of SANDERS, JAQUES, WILKINS in upper New York and New England, LEE, LANE, and CAHOON in Connecticut, and NOLD in New York and beyond.

|Teresa Howard Robertson||Thank you very much!|
For the Suchecki edits. I have more.
|Gary Boughton||St. John|
St. John gets the most hits and appears to be what is actually on the gravestone. Perhaps best?
|Gary Boughton||Phebe Birchard|
Looks like both are on the same gravestone.
|Karen Hagy||Thank you!|
I woke up today, and in checking my email, found a message that you have added a photo of my 3rd great grandmother's grave. Thank you! I'm thrilled! I hope to visit these sites one day.
|David Oravez||RE: Charles Oravez - Branchville Cemetary|
Thank you, Jack. I may just do that.
My mother's family is from Georgetown. The family name is Barrett. My grandfather (Harry James Barrett) bought many plots there and quite a few have been used for many of his children who are interned there.
Charlie isn't interned at Branchville. When we do bury his cremation remains, it will be at Riverside Cemetery where we have 5 cremation plots.
|David Oravez||Charles Oravez - Branchville Cemetary|
Hello! I can't even begin to tell you how coincidental this is!
It has been years since I've been on this site and today I did. I searched for my uncle Charles Oravez and found that you had just put a picture of his stone.
This stone has been lost since he died. Branchville said they couldn't find it and Riverside Cemetery in Norwalk (where the plots are) couldn't find it either.
He was cremated and we still hold his ashes so the stone wasn't so much a priority.
Now, that I know where it is, I'll be contacting Branchville Cemetery.
Thanks so much!

I found the following about how that type of duplicate can happen:
Q: Why are there multiple copies of the record I submitted?
A: Duplicate entries sometimes happen when you use the "back" button to view a newly entered record... it is best not to use that button to navigate our site because it can -- as you already know -- result in duplicated records. The other possibility is that when you are trying to edit a record you have already saved, you are using our submission form and recreating the entire record, which results in the creation of an additional record.
