Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family, all 4 sides - names I am working on are Picariello; Ragosta; Kozar; Briggs; Permatteo/Piermatteo and all the branches from these names.

I am originally from and grew up in Needham, MA and now live in Bellingham, MA for the past 40 years. I try to add Bellingham and Needham resident's memorial when I can.

Along my searches, if I come across someone deceased, I sometimes add the notice to this site. If you wish I didn't, please let me know and I will delete it. But, remember, if someone is producing a family tree, these entries are very useful and the listed people will never be forgotten.

Hezekiah Fletcher Edits - FYI

Hello GrannyT,

I just sent you some edits for this memorial, # 23102216. Wanted you to know they are based on a publication I found on the Staples family at NEHGS (Boston) plus reviewing a higher resolution of the marker photo sent to me today by Margaret Haynes who took it in 2009. I may have more edits for you later as I work more on the family.

Thank you for creating his memorial in 2007. I just created his wife's based on the better photo, tho I haven't yet figured out her first name!

Re: Beth B. Briggs - Memorial# 154684004
Thank you for creating a memorial for Beth B. Briggs. Unfortunately, it was created in the wrong cemetery. You posted it in Oak Grove Cemetery in New Bedford, MA. The memorial should have been posted in OAK GROVE CEMETERY in FALL RIVER, MA. These are two different cemeteries in two different cities. If you could take a look and edit the cemetery information it would be appreciated. Thank you!

Francis Young (13697372)
"Born in Milton, Vt., he was a son of the late Frank E. and Lillian (Deseney) Young."

Could you correct the spelling of my paternal great grandmother to (Desany)? Are you related to the Young's?

I sent an edit for Francis' parents:
Francis E Young, 1879 1962 (Find A Grave Memorial# 72182631)

Lillian May "Lillie" DESANY 1886 1968 (Find A Grave Memorial# 72182647)

I am in process of trying to link their children, my paternal aunts and uncles to their parents.

Helen Young (1903 1904)
Harold Francis Young (1905 - 1959)*
Lorena Elizabeth Young Adam (1907 - 1992)*

Mary Eloise Young Cahill (1915 - 1997)*
Marion Lillian Roberts (1916 - 2002)*
Marguerite A Young Tatro (1917 - 2007)*
Rita Elizabeth Young Felton (1919 - 2012)*
Pauline Elizabeth Sawyer (1920 - 2010)*
----Francis S. Young, Sr (1922-2006)---
Bernard E Young 1928 1995

Thank you for your help,

Irene Bamberg Schwab memorial
Dear GrannyT,

This person is my 1C1R. If you are not related, would you, please, transfer this memorial (#16051707) to me (my Find A Grave # is 46604047). I manage the memorials for her parents and would like to connect her to them. Also, if you have her husband's memorial, would you transfer that, too? If you are related, please let me know.

Thank you!

George Allen, father of Ralph Allen
Hello! I'm researching my Allen family branch and I've reached George Allen. I was just wondering, are you 100% sure that George Allen is Ralph's father? I just want to be sure I'm adding the right dude. Haha!
I don't tend to trust a lot of the websites, I prefer genealogical books and etc. But I wanted to confirm with you before I give up trying to trace further beyond George Allen.
Thank you for your time!
