Bio and Links
My husband and I recently relocated to Massachusetts, the origins of his ancestry. I am thrilled with the old cemeteries and can't wait to wander through them taking pictures.

When we moved to Hackettstown in 2005, where my husband and I restored a wonderful old Victorian home, my interest in genealogy kicked into overdrive. I started researching the history of my home and it has exploded into researching all the ancestral families of Hackettstown, and that meant a lot of trips to the Union and Old Presbyterian cemeteries in town. As a result, I've overcome my fear of cemeteries and have found them to be a fascinating, serene place.

I was the President of the Hackettstown Historical Society and Museum, and our website features pictures of many of those headstones as well as information on these long-ago citizens.

And.... if anyone has a picture of a Hackettstonian ancestor they'd like to contribute to the Society's cause, they'd love to have a copy!!

Of course, I'm also researching mine and my husband's families. I can trace my roots to William Huffington in Virginia, and my husband likes to boast that he's a pilgrim, descended from Richard Warren of the Mayflower. Of course, the branches of his tree are far and wide, with direct decendancy from Deacon Samuel Chapin and other early Massachusetts/Maine families with names like Elwell, Eddy, Coburn, Tucker, Lane, Riggs and more.

We're still trying to find the first of his Brock family here in America. The first relative we can find is John Brock (abt 1714-1780) of Gloucester, so any and all help is appreciated.

Hi Donna:

I looked at this memorial today, and the photo you added was not showing, just a blank space. Could you please enter it again.

Hi Donna,

I was looking up Joseph Cutter, who is my 4th Great Grandfather and I noticed you have Sarah D. Cutter as his wife. Joseph's wife was Lucy Stone Richardson Cutter who would have been my 4th Great Grandmother, their son, Dexter Josiah Cutter was my 3rd Great Grandfather. I think Sarah was Joseph Cutter's son, Dexter's Brother, Joseph Dana Cutter's wife.

I thought I would let you know.

I put the new photo of your loved one on the site for "Richard Kunz" and not the "Alfred Richard" site, since I see one there. Did you want another ?
