I love the peace and quiet of cemeteries. (There are no telemarketers calling.) I also love taking pictures. The exercise is at my own pace. The stones are interesting, and they absolutely need to be documented before they are lost to the ravages of time. |
I'm 10 generations forward from my Mayflower ancestor George Soule. I'm 13 generations from my New Haven founder Capt. Nathaniel Turner. 13 Generations is 1024 direct ancestors (doesn't count siblings etc.) My husband also has 1024 direct ancestors going back to the Mayflower. That's 2048 direct ancestors. I haven't found them all in the 40+ years I've been researching. But I'm still looking. Thanks to all of you members at Find a Grave, who are making finding their burial places easier.
PLEASE use the EDIT tab for suggestions, corrections and transfers. I'm happy to make changes, but I'm going to ask you for a source, if it's not directly on the stone. (Using the new edit system you can send source information through the "Suggest any other correction or addition" line.) The internet is a wonderful thing for genealogists but it's also very good at spreading misinformation, and I am trying very hard not to spread undocumented genealogy. That's one of the reasons I love Find a Grave, because I can look directly at a gravestone and see exactly what it says and don't have to depend on second and third hand information. Happy hunting.
PHOTOS OF GRAVESTONES. Please feel free to use mine, that's why I took them. I do like to get credit, though. "ASB"
PHOTOS OF PEOPLE. I've posted them to be enjoyed by visitors to Find a Grave. I was a little taken aback to see my mother's photo on Ancestry. So you're welcome to use them, for your personal use, but I would appreciate it, if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites.

|Kathy Kinghorn||Thank You!!!!|
I don't know what is more exciting for me! The fact that someone would take time to find a grave of one of my ancestors or the fact that i am staring at a grave of one of my ancestors! What a beautiful, wonderful program this is! If possible, can you let the person who actually took this picture how much it means to me! I look forward to the day when someone needs me to photograph a grave for them!
|Jacques Deslauriers||Headstones photos|
Thanks for the headstone photos you provided for Joseph Deslauriers and his wife Augustine Genereux.
I added them to these persons's pages on our family genealogy site :
I would have prefered to mention your name as the provider rather than just ASB as you suggest in your BIO. This can always be changed later.
|Treekeeper||RE: Carrie Louise Carl 97777369|
Thanks for the message, that makes perfect sense and she is buried with her first husband so that works.
|Diane Gravlee||James Corbin|
Thanks so much for the reply re James Corbin's burial marker. I wondered about it since 54 Corbins were listed in this cemetery and James was the only one without a grave marker photo. I appreciate your efforts for this entire cemetery and for your help with my request.
|Randy Rauscher||Photo Request: William Martin|
Thank you so much for fulfilling my photo request for the grave of William Martin! If I can ever return the favor in New Jersey, let me know.
|Terri Kukla||RE: Jacob Bixby|
Thank You for your email. I understand and agree.
I appreciate your adding information and photos to the web site so others can see their ancestors.
You are very kind to do this.
|Terri Kukla||RE: Jacob Bixby|
Thank You very much..
Just a curiosity.. It looks like there is a civil war Union States marker in front of the stone but he wasn't living during the civil war so I wondered if you knew what the marker was in front of the stone?
Truly, thank you for all your efforts in adding these headstones. It is very much appreciated.
|Terri Kukla||Jacob Bixby|
Thank You for taking the time to add Jacob Bixbys headstone photo..I do not know when you did this but I do want to thank you. Do you know what it says at the bottom for Sarah?
|james cook||RE: Adeline Boucher 93807049|
My wife's great grandmother is Mrs Joseph Paquette. Or Mary Carrie King. She is linked to Alexis Roy. Alexis used the French for King or Roy. Mary Paquette' obit shows her sister as Adeline Bushey. On Alexis Roy's obit they listed his first two children as Mrs. Narcisse Beausoleil instead of Mrs Narcisse or Nelson Boucher. Adeline also shows up on the 1870 Mooers, NY census, and Mary Paquette's death certificate shows father Alexander King. If you have any other questions please let me know.
|Kathy||RE: Emma B. Gagne memorial|
Thank you so much for checking. I'm not sure who she is but now I have something more to go on.
