Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived in the New Haven area all my life. From the time I was very young, photography has been an important part of my life, and that, combined with my love of history, is what led me to this site. If I can be of any assistance to anyone in tracking down a grave, please don't hesitate to contact me.

If you happen to have a photo of a particular gravestone that is easier to read than one I've posted, please feel free to post yours as well - I won't mind!

If you are interested in cemeteries in CT, please visit my group on the photo-sharing website, Connecticut Cemeteries!

Note: If asking for me to link one memorial to another, please let me know the memorial numbers involved...don't make me have to search for them. When asking for a transfer of one of my memorials, if the memorial in question is your direct relative within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents), I will be happy to transfer it over to you. If not, I would rather maintain the memorial myself as I have done a great deal of work in research and photography on them.

Thank you
I couldn't believe how quickly I was able to find the cemetery where my mother is buried. Thank you for documenting her final resting place.

Daniel Cady Eaton
Hello Rob,

There is a fair amount of information on Daniel Cady Eaton on the internet, Wikipedia and such, if you care to bolster his bio.

My apologies. I was rushed when I made these requests and did not read the tombstone information completely. I will definitely be more careful in the future.

RE: Alling Corrections
Hi Rob,
I am tracing my mother-in-law's family and one of the Alling women married into the line. So I am just finding them and will be glad to send them as I get them.
Thanks for all you do, I am tracking multiple families and many, many times the Find A Grave site has proved to be a wealth of information.
Keep up the good work!! And thanks again!
