I enjoy walking around Vermont cemeteries and specifically locating Civil War Veterans to contribute to Vermont In The Civil War website http://vermontcivilwar.org/index.php But when I am in a cemetery I find any excuse to linger and take a few extra photos, hoping that a link to family will be made. If you discover a relative amongst the memorials I have located, feel free to contact me about transfer. I am glad to hear from anyone that can add to information or clarify dates and relations.. Happy Trails!|

|Joan Harvey||RE: Joseph Shorey & Mary King|
Thanks for your reply. I also fell and skinned my knees there! I think my next step will be to look for church burial records. This gravestone also appears in a book about Irish immigrants in VT. I know Joseph Shorey (Charest) was definitely French Canadian, but his wife, Mary King, also from P.Q. may have been Irish.
I appreciate the photograph since it confirms dates.
|Joan Harvey||Joseph Shorey & Mary King|
Last week, we walked everywhere in St. Augustine Cemetery, in Montpelier, VT, climbing twice from top to bottom, but could not find this gravestone (my husband's great grandparents). Joseph Shorey is a Civil War veteran, so should have a flag for Memorial Day. BTW, his youngest brother, Alphonse Shorey, has a large monument there under the name Charest, the original French Canadian surname.
Are there any directions you could give to find the Joseph Shorey gravestone? Or are there any cemetery records that give the precise location of the grave?
Thanks for any suggestions. Joan

Thank you for sending information on Josiah Willard's military service. I've added it to his memorial.
|Cheryl Dooley||RE: Congregational Church Cemetery - Brandon, VT|
Thank you. Have been told by town clerk that someone did book on all readable stones and that Emma and son William White are not listed. So either no stone or broken or unreadable, I guess. William died in Sep 1875 at age 1. We believe Emma died in 1876 after birth of 2nd son. Second son then lived with Horace and Rhoda White in Colchester. Have visited the cemetery in 2010 and neither Emma or William are with them.
Emma's parents - Benjamin and Caroline Sargent - are buried in Pine Tree Cemetery in Brandon. We visited that cemetery also and found only her parents, 2 siblings, and her father's 2nd and 3rd wives. We live in WI.
Thank you tho,
|Cheryl Dooley||Congregational Church Cemetery - Brandon, VT|
I saw your pictures on Find A Grave. I have been helping a relative of my husband try to find burial of her great-grandmother Emma Sargent White for several years.
I now believe she is buried in the Congregational Church Cemetery in Brandon, although death records can not be found.
Emma Sargent married Henry H. White in Brandon on Dec. 31, 1873. They were married by Rev. Ingalls.
I have now been told by Brandon Town Clerk that Rev. Ingalls was with the Congregational Church.
In Sep. 1874, Emma and Henry's son William H. White was born in Brandon. He died the following year in Sep. 1875 in Brandon.
Emma was pregnant with second son (born March 1876) when first son died.
Someone told me several years ago that Emma was buried in a cemetery by a brick church with a bell tower.
So this all fits together. Maybe the stones for William and Emma are broken or unreadable.
Henry later remarried and is buried in WI. But the family never knew where Emma was. The second son was raised by paternal grandparents in Colchester, VT until the grandmother died and he then came to WI to live with his uncle and aunt, my husband's g.grandparents.
Emma's great-granddaughter Cindy spent the winter going thru cancer treatments and asked me to take up the search again for her. She is worried she will die without finding Emma. She is willing to pay someone to do a search for her.
If you can help, please let me know.
Maybe stones will only say son and mother. Maybe we will never find them, but have to keep trying.

You're welcome and thank you. Have a wonderful night.
|CopelandFamilyDescendants||John N Copeland|
I thank you for the transfer of the John N Copeland cenotaph memorial #75643853. I finally found his burial memorial, #3006182. It had been created from VA records and got very messed up. I have updated your civil war info info just a bit.
|Jim Ottmer||Camp transfers|
Thank you for transferring Juliette Camp and her husband to me. We really appreciate your creating them.
|Joseph & Robin Warfield||RE: Pvt Edmund William Green|
Pvt Edmund William Green is my wife's Great Grand Uncle. You are very welcome for the photos. Must be honest. We didn't know anyone was looking for them.
Are you related to the Greens?
Joe and Robin
