I LOVE Find A Grave. It has helped me locate so many of my relatives!|
I don't mind people copying my photos and adding them to their Ancestry.com family trees, but please at least acknowledge that it's been copied!! You could type in "Photo by Caryn at Findagrave". Thanks!
I will also gladly transfer memorials of relatives/friends to you.

|Sandra Lennox||Isaac Robbins, Burial Hill|
First of all THANK YOU for taking the photo of
the gravestone. The photo came out good.
I hope your trip to Florida was good. Did you
go to any cemeteries there? Sometimes we can
drive people crazy with our addiction.
I agree with you, the year does look like
1783, the #8 is raised a little higher than
the other numbers. I rechecked Bradford Kingman's
book and his transcription does say 1703 which
does not make any sense the other 3 children have
date of deaths; 1777, 1786, and 1791. All died
very young I will add a note to the memorial.
Thank you for your very sharp eye!
Yes I am so tired of this snow! I just want
to get out and take some photos. I am still working
at Chiltonville, some parts are like a jungle!
Once again thank you for taking the photo and
noticing the year of death.
Hopefully we will see each other soon.

I linked Abby to her father Silas and mother Chloe. Also thank you for a couple of dates I was missing.
|Bil Holway||Almira Meigs Holway|
in 2012 you sent me a correction on Almira as follows..
Almira's maiden name was Meigs. She was born in Sandwich and died there on Oct. 11, 1843 of consumption.
Her parents were Josiah Meigs and Lydia Fuller. Her brothers Calvin, Edmund and George are buried at Boardley Road Cem. also.
Do you know where her parents where barried? I could not find them to add if so if you could get me their Mem# thatwould be great. Also if you have any info on Holways or if she had kids that would be great. That is my family line.
Thank you for your time.

|Benjamin Dunham||RE: Daniel Westgate|
I think Daniel Sr. lied about his age so he could accompany his son in the unit.
|Benjamin Dunham||RE: Civil War|
Do see my photo essay about the Battle of Fredericksburg! GWDunham and Daniel Westgate Sr. were pinned down on Marye's Hill for more than a day, and the delay in evacuating them was the reason your ancestor died. I think they must have been friends. At Harrison's Landing, they both would have been within earshot of the first ever playing of Taps!

|Benjamin Dunham||RE: Charles Ruggles and Lemuel Swift|
Happy to help. I have other genealogical information about the Swifts and the Dunhams, who are buried in the Wareham Center Cemetery. Lemuel Swift Jr.'s daughter Betsey married George Washington Dunham, my gggrandfather. He enlisted in the Civil War at the age of 43 and the story of his fighting at the Battle of Fredricksburg is recounted at: .
|Benjamin Dunham||Charles Ruggles|
Nice to know where Charles Ruggles is buried. His farm, left to him by his banker father, is now the Kittansett Golf Course on the point in East Marion. His grandson, who was born on the property, was the famous American composer Carl Ruggles.
|Benjamin Dunham||Lemuel Swift's birth|
Oct 31, 1752
Lemuel died insolvent in 1822. He owed $4,177 to some of the most prominent people in town. His son, Lemuel, Jr., of Rochester was the administrator of his estate and sold his father's real estate for $450 to settle the debts a dime on the dollar, with his widow, Betsey, allowed to keep $50.
