Notes: If anyone spots an ancestor, relative, pal, etc., amongst my memorials, please give me a shout and I'll gladly turn them over to you. However, please note that I'm lazy about checking my email but I'll get to you eventually. The same goes for email regarding any corrections . . . I have filed these and will get to them eventually as well. Sorry for any delays, but I don't have a lot of time on my hands.|
I am a historian, ie., Family Historian and a bit of a tombstone tourist. I especially like to find gravestones from Colonial days through the late 1800's. Further, I feel strongly that gravestones are a testimony to the greatness of America's past. There are several reasons for my decision to transcribe cemeteries. First, I needed a hobby, because I quit smoking two years and three months ago. Second, I would love to obtain as many grave photos for my genealogy book as possible.
My family, on my mom's side, were colonists and came to American soil prior to 1637, according to Sidney Perley, author of "The History of Salem, MA". According to another source: "Upon a Ship called The Sparrow." My Branch of the "Patch" family first resided in Salem to Beverly to Wenham to Ipswich (all towns of Essex County), MA - then Newton to Concord to Groton (all towns of Middlesex County), MA - they came to Vermont in 1781 - being the 6th family to reside in Ludlow, Windsor County, VT.
Because of our beliefs in a united states we became Americans prior to 1776. However, our family did not seem to lean toward Puritan Stock, but were rather merchants of enterprise. We did not arrive in America as indentured servants as many did. We were, quite literally, "Fishermen" come to fish the abundant waters found here. In fact, the very first place of residence of Nicholas Patch Jr. was: Mackerell Cove on the Beverly side of Salem, MA.

Diana, I'm an advisor for my son's Venture Crew in Westfield, MA. We're clearing an abandoned graveyard in N. Blandford, MA where Gilbert's father is possibly buried. There is what could possibly be another headstone which has been broken off about 30 feet away. Do you possibly have more specific directions to Gilbert's final resting spot? I don't usually get a chance to check this site, but you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

At your convenience, please link your Memorial #85128229 for Esther to her father, Comfort Ingraham, Memorial #67590195. Thanks!
A year or so ago you wrote me a note asking if I knew any thing about the Pease family. I still don't really know much but came across a tidbit or two that might be a piece to your puzzle. I descend from Mary 'Polly' Pease 43660205 m. to Daniel Chillson (b.1778-1856). Their son Horace H. Chillson m. Hannah Plumley, Hannah was the granddght of Paul Hitchcok 99490288 and Hannah Pease and the dght of Lois Hitchcock 100119762.
In looking at the children of Paul and Hannah I see they named a son Sumner (1809-1977). Now Daniel and Polly also used the name Sumner for their son Daniel and I think that was its first use in the Chilson family. Years ago I blew it. I have a hymnal with the name Daniel Sumner Chillson written in it and at the time thought it belonged to Daniel b1776. Well just this month I found that it belonged to his son Daniel S. (Sumner) b.1813. So now its out there that Daniel b. 1776 middle name was Sumner, but I think that is wrong and that Sumner came from the Pease side of the family. Maybe that will tie into something for you.

I had added my ancestors Solomon Pillsbury #81440515 and his wife Prudence #81440684 some time ago. I went to add to their Memorials and it says you had merged them.
Now Prudence is out of families hands, how is that possible? My research is at her new Memorial but it was taken out of families hands without notice. Do you know why?
Thank you for your time-

Hi Diana, sorry for the double post.
I was wondering what information you have on James Round (Memorial# 24077578) and his ancestry. Also I'm looking to see what else you may know about the Cole family, which Urania Cole (Memorial# 24077611) belongs to. Thanks for the help. Logan Thompson

You currently have 16 Bement family memorials in your care. I have provided substantial edits to them but they have never been posted. I do the genealogy for all Bement Family in America and would appreciate it if you would transfer those memorials to me so that I can properly maintain them and provide dates, places, full names, bios and linking.
Hi, is anyone having a problem with contacting Diana? Has she gone inactive? No response from April request, no response from August request. Leave a message on my message board. Thank you.

This is in reference to Find A Grave Memorial# 35956409. I was wondering where you found the name Thompson for this person.
I've been searching for a maiden name for Mrs Gibson and was excited to see your listing. Just want to verify.
