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. I've been known to wander off to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine given the opportunity.
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... Click here to see the memorials I've added in the past few 7 days.

|Dennis & Jean Boyer||RE: Your Memorial #39601520, Hezekiah Howell|
Thank you! It is done. Would appreciate your review, too. You'll find what has been verified through SAR Genealogy at his Patriot Ancestor record, along with a brief biography and your photo, at patriot.sar.org, using the "Advanced Search" option to enter P-186381 in the "Patriot #" box. This is the biography recently submitted by one of his descendants:
"The Howell family originally settled on Long Island in the early 1600ís. Hezekiah was born in Southampton, LI., and later moved north to Orange County, NY in 1737. He farmed there and he, his father, and son together owned 750 acres of land.
Howell was born in 1709 and by the time of the Revolution he was in his 60ís and did not serve in a military capacity. He was, however, a member of the Committee on Safety and Observation in Cornwall, Orange County, NY. He died in 1815 in Blooming Grove, Orange County and is buried in the Washingtonville Cemetery. The SAR also recognizes his son Hezekiah."
add to your list of "never do this" if it isn't already there.

Thank you so much for the great photo! Glad you could get a chance to get over there and do it!
Wish you would have brushed it off, but I suppose the pine wisps make it picturesque!

Grandma Alice is my paternal grandmother also, her son Frank Richard is my father. And to the best of my knowledge he is an only child.
I don't get to F-A-G very often. Please e-mail me at email@example.com.
Look forward to hearing from you. We may have much to share.

|Kim Bryan||RE: Jeremiah Wood|
Yea I'm still trying to figure the ins and outs of using this. But it's been a great resource, and has helped me with my family research. It can give me dates I didn't have, or confirm that I'm headed in the wrong direction. Now, I just need to put this away so I can cook dinner. I seem to have stumbled into a new batch of ancestors I didn't know I had! Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!!
