Find-a-Grave #87868279 I just sent you his obituary to be added to his memorial. Unfortunately I hit the send button before proofing it and know it has a couple typos. Would you please correct these before you add it? It is long and I sure don't want to type it again... Thank you! Gale

RE: Point o' Woods aka Champion No. 1
Hi, Keith!

I have only taken photos in the cemetery within the bounds of Point O' Woods. I haven't taken photos anywhere else in Old Lyme. Does that help?

Very best,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for creating the memorial for my 3x great great grandparents along with adding photos of their headstones. I appreciate being able to find them on Find A Grave and I thank you for the work you do here. These connections are so valuable to me.
I see in your bio that one of your family names is Washburn and am curious of the connection. I am descended through William's son Howland to Andrew to Hervey Sr then Hervey Jr.
Blessings to you

Keith, that's wonderful! Just let me know if there are any changes you see on the lists that I should make. For such a small cemetery, it sure has been effortful to record. :)

Thanks for letting me know!

Very best,

Keith, the Champions are confusing! I find an Ada Champion who has a Susan Champion as her sister, with parents Edward and Mary. I can find a Worthy Champion born 1859, with wife, Emma (1866-1921), in "Duck River Cemetery" in the Hale Collection, and verify him and his wife on Ancestry. Worthy lists his marriage to Emma as his second in the 1920 Census. This explains why we don't see his gravestone in the Point O' Woods Cemetery, just his name on Ada's.

Ada Champion
Age in 1870: 4
Birth Year: abt 1866
Birthplace: Connecticut
Home in 1870: Old Lyme, New London, Connecticut
Race: White
Gender: Female
Post Office: Lyme
Value of real estate: View image

RE: Susan Miller Champion
Yes, there are many more stones than the 49 listed so far. Maybe 70-75 is closer to the total than 49. That was my impression, as I was taking photos of the 40-50 I had originally shot.

I'd like to think I can get back down there before the snow falls, if that would help, Keith!
