Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of William Backus, Sr., who came from England to settle in Old Saybrook, Middlesex, CT, by 1637. He died in 1661, in Norwich, New London, CT.

My mother's ancestral line descends from James Pike, who was settled in Charlestown, Middlesex, MA by 1647 and later moved to Reading, Middlesex, MA..

My direct ancestral surnames include: Abbe, Allen, Atkins, Backus, Bailey, Bassett, Benton, Brown, Buelow, Bumpas, Caswell, Chaffn, Charles, Chase, Clement, Cram, Cross, Damon, Decato, Eaton, Engleshie, Gard, Garnzey, Giguere, Hale, Hayward, Hebard, Howard, Johnson, Lapham, McCowen, Merrifield, Palmer, Pierce, Pike, Pitkin, Ross, Story, Stresseman, Thurber, Towne, Webster, Wheelock, White, Willis and Wright.

With few exceptions, the memorials found in this contributor account were created for members of my direct family but they are part of our extensive genealogy project, which includes many more Find A Grave Memorials. We are family genealogists and our Find A Grave work is driven primarily by our project, but due to the scope of this project, we know that our managed memorials are benefiting thousands of visitors to Find A Grave who are searching for information about their family members. We also make contributions to Find A Grave, outside of our genealogy project. We sincerely thank all of the Find A Grave contributors who have helped us.

Roger Layn
Roger Layn is now transferred to you.

Sorry it took so long.

Have a great day,

Roger Layn
Roger Layn was born in 1920, therefore I had the right to create the memorial. This is confusing as you said no memorials from 1931 to present are not allowed, which I obey by.

Is this the correct Roger Layn? If so, I will be happily able to transfer for it to you.
