Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Thanks!

RE: oh, forgot to mention
If you are interested in photographing in the Old Lyme cemetery, I could e-mail you a map that displays what has been photographed already. I have taken about 1,200 memorial photos there. I estimate there are maybe 900 more to take. As I have uploaded photos of it, I am discovering that about 10% of the memorials are not in the town cemetery records (from which the Find A Grave burials were created).

Best,

Jay

Thanks for the suggested edits for John and his sister. I am going to accept them, but could you let me know the source if it was other than online vital statistics? I always like to add the source to the memorial if it isn't obvious.

Best,

RE: Sarah Allard Holton
Hi,
Please keep all my Allard transfers as I am not related and am not wokrking on the family lines. I just collect as I go along and try to find appropriate people who can make use of the information.

RE: Allard corrections
I used Familysearch.org to verify information. I just did several Allard edits, so I don't remember which ones were yours.

I am totally unrelated. A transfer to you is available and welcome, if you like.

RE: Robie corrections in Corinth VT
I made so many corrections this week that I do not know specifically which ones you are referencing. The bulk of them were from the book, "A Genealogical History of the Robie Family in England and America," compiled by Eva B. Robie Schwarting and Margaret Dorothy Robie Ninteman, published in 1956. They have a very thorough bibliography. It is available online.

If you give me the Robie names you manage on findagrave, I will give you any additional specifics I have.

RE: Caleb Marshall (130207088)
The photo that I submitted was right side up, not sideways; I don't know why findagrave does that. However, if you click on the photo and get the full size image, it will display right side up.
