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.

|Judith Weaver||Duplicate Names and solution|
Find A Grave Memorial# 85996305
One is the daughter of Timothy and Hannah Skinner born 1756 and the other I believe is the Mother Hannah Tiffany Skinner born 1725 and death unknown. It would make sense that since the husband and some of the children are buried here that the Mother is here also and since there are two graves seemingly for the same Hannah that the other is the missing Hannah.

I just created a duplicate file by mistake for Benjamin Parker. I will delete mine but would like to add the bio I did as he was my 3rd great grandfather's brother. Please add my bio or consider transfering his memorial to me.

Dear Diana, Would you please be so kind as to add these dates to Lieut. Benjamin Beal's Find A Grave Memorial?
Born 9 Dec 1731 in Weymouth,Mass. Died 30 Aug 1805 in Abington, Mass. Thanks, Cynthia Brown
|Susan Barrow Spaulding||Thank you|
While searching for one ancestor, I think I may have found others. You noted a book as a source that you referenced on a memorial and that information has been helpful tracking other ancestors. I think Lucy Applin's mother, Lucy Spaulding may be descended from Edward Spalding from Braintree, Massachusetts. Thank you for added the book title to her memorial.
