Bio and Links
I am member who is doing photo requests/random photos after locating a family member's gravestone on Find A Grave.

Please do not copy my photos and claim them as your own..I am happy to transfer a memorial to you if you are related..all you have to do is ask!!

If I have added a gravestone photo of your ancestor and you would prefer that it not be posted..just ask me to have it problem with doing this.

I will add your contributor's number to any edits that you send me. So that others will know the source of added information and can contact you with any further questions or research info.

Thanks to everyone who has had to endure my transition period concerning the edit issue. I certainly appreciate all your trouble/effort through this time and hopefully this new way of doing edits will solve this "problem".

Good luck with your genealogy!!

RE: Mary Chamberlain

Went back this afternoon and checked all nearby graves, and could find no memorial for Lucius Chamberlain, nor any illegible ones that might be his. She is buried in a long line of Dimicks. Three graves to the left of her grave is a gap in the headstones which could be an unmarked grave.

The town records have many mistakes and omissions in them which I am discovering as I transcribe some of the older stones.

RE: Mary Chamberlain
I will be returning to Old Lyme soon and will explore. I recall there was a barely legible stone next to hers which I have not attempted to transcribe yet, but will.

RE: Thomas McQuay
Thank you so much for the bio! My husband's great uncle, john B Hartranft was drafted twice into service in Michigan for the Civil War. Both times the units disbanded before heading out. The third time he decided to pay the $200 to have someone go in his place. This unit actually made it to the fight. Three of his brothers and four of his uncles did serve and all came home!
Again, thank you!

RE: Woods Flick
I am not related-I am trying to ad as much cemetery info as I can. Our church will be 200 years old in 2016, and like many small country churches, its future is questionable as the congregation shrinks.

I have been working on a 200th year history book that will include early records (baptisms, burials, communion and marriages) plus the history. We plan to have it for sale on Amazon in late spring next year.

We are also (hopefully) planning a day that we honor the veterans buried there-especially the civil war ones, which Thomas McQuay is one, that will include the local Legion, re-enactors etc. Every veterans name will be read, along with his regt.

If you would like to send me a bio on them I would love to keep it at the church-nothing huge-just a brief one. We have also been putting bios and tidbits in the bulletin.

I love the Pa Death Cert!! Best thing ever!

Thank you for your consideration.

Experience Johnson
Hi Sara, when you were at the cemetery in Tolland photographing the Allen family, did you happen to notice a grave for Experience Johnson? He was Elizabeth Sargent Allen's first husband. There is a headstone for their daughter. Experience died a year earlier. There appear to be headstones for all other members of the family. Thanks for any info!
