trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.|
Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County.
Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.
Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.
I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.
My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed...

You're welcome! I took several pictures of that plot, as it was such a lovely monument. I will add one that shows the setting.

You are probably right. Thank you.
I would be happy to exchange any Chapman information with you, if you like. My Chapman ancestors go like this: Edward -> Symon -> Joseph -> Simon -> Juniah -> Simon (Vt-Oh) -> Sylvanus S.(Vt-Oh-Mi), etc. to me!

They have him buried here with his wife:
Plot: Sec-V Lot-53 Grv-3
|Carolyn (Johnson) Reed||RE: Levi Bryant|
I get most of my information that has to do with Cornish, in the History of Cornish, NH Genealogies. This information about Levi Bryant is on page 35 of vol II. Hope this helps..
Just curious to know if you are researching the Chapman family ?
|Anonymous||RE: Dartmouth research|
There's not much in the way of Dartmouth's biographical records that is digital and searchable online.
Two exceptions are the presidential bios:
and Chapman's Sketches of the Alumni, covering only GRADUATES of the UNDERGRADUATE college, through the Class of 1867:
People are always welcome to come use resources on site at Rauner Library, like files on deceased alumni. Hanover genealogical records, Hanover cemetery records, student registers, etc.
I refer you to Memorial# 35354238 for Abigail Scribner Kilburn, wife of Gilbert Kilburn. There had been a memorial for him but it has since been removed. You took the photo of Abigail's tombstone and I wonder if you have a photo of his tombstone as well. I have created a memorial and ask you to add the photo of his tombstone if you have it. Thank you in advance.

Thanks for your kind words. I have searched as well and have found nothing. I don't believe that the obituary was the correct Alice, but thanks for your help! If and when I find something, I will notify Find A Grave.
