Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired nurse and am currently devoting most of my time to family research.
I embarked on my genealogical quest over twenty five years ago. My mother died in 1988 and left behind a small treasure trove of interesting letters, post cards and newspaper clippings. The most interesting letters dated back to the Civil War. I had to know who these people were. I discovered that I am a direct and indirect descendant from about half of the first settlers in Hartford, Connecticut in 1635 (on my mother's side). I have since filled two filing cabinets with records and family files, and have over 15,000 people in my database.
The first time I walked into a cemetery and found a family name, I was hooked. I learned that most people hate cemeteries. I love them.
Most of my entries are family, or extended family. If I have made any errors, please let me know and I will correct them. If you are more closely related to any of the people I have entered, please feel free to ask for a transfer. Just click the edit tab in the upper right-hand corner of the memorial and leave me a message.

Thank You for bringing that to my attention, so often the 3's & 5's on older headstones are tricky to differentiate! Jim

Fanny Warfield Winchell
Janice I have added all the information to the memorial that I created for Ann Frances "Fanny" Warfield Winchell. It appears the headstone was never carved for her death date Dec 11 or Dec 1 depending upon the source referenced. I don't know where her child is buried. I am guessing in Blandford with her mother. The records in Granville are a mess. I have been working on the cemeteries in Granville for 4 years and the town records are a real challenge. Most of the records seem to have been created from the headstones. Sexton records for the earlier cemeteries are incomplete. I hope the information I posted helps your research. I have no idea about the other memorial because it is for Wariner not Warfield. It may be another person in the cemetery. I can't speak for Beckie Cross and her source. As you can see from the photo on mine it is indeed Warfield. and most likely not the same person as Beckie's.

I transferred management of the memorials to you, so you can continue linking and updating your family as needed.

Thanks for the heads up on the Fullers. They appear as brother and sister in the 1880 Census Warsaw, IL as well.

In regards to the duplicates. The lower number tells you who made the first memorial. If a duplicate is found (sometimes the search does not always work with Find A Grave or someone may be inventorying a whole cemetery, or sometimes it is just a mistake) then you hit the edit button upper right of the memorial and send a polite message to the person(s) that created the duplicate letting them know about the possible duplicate. I say possible error because I just had a member rudely let me know I created a duplicate and he did not read the death dates. In fact he wanted me to delete the memorial of the son by error. Some of the members are polite, others are quite rude. I appreciate your note and I have contacted the other members involved. That does not mean that they will make adjustments. Thanks again for the information.
