Bio and Links
Bio Photo Past President of the Mount Vernon Genealogical Society ( & author of New Copies of Old Records from Hebron CT, 1708-1875 (Heritage Books, 2011) & various articles on New England genealogy.I have transcribed Litchfield County, CT cemeteries from the Hale Collection because I'm looking for 18th Century collateral ancestors in our Birge, Fox, Hatch, Holcomb, Hindman, Hunt, Noble, Peck, Thompson, Wilcox, & Willson lines. If you are related to other families in these cemeteries, let me know & I will transfer ownership of memorials with your surnames to you so you can add information and links. I have many other Connecticut ancestors in central Connecticut cemeteries, where I will also transfer memorials unrelated to our family.Most of my Connecticut memorials are copied from the Hale Collection, which transcribed all Connecticut tombstones during the Depression. The transcription is not error-free, but Hale was able to read things then which are no longer legible today.The New Hampshire entries are all from Colonial Gravestone Inscriptions in the State of NH, by Mrs. Charles Goss (1942). None are close relations of mine, so if you want to make additions or corrections, please just request a transfer.When contacting me about a specific memorial, PLEASE do so from the Edit:Corrections & Queries tab on the memorial itself. This makes it SO much easier for me to respond quickly & accurately.

Mary WEST Sumner
Reading the Record of the Descendants of William Sumner, of Dorchester, Mass., 1636 I find that William Sumner was married to Mary WEST. Not Swift. This is why I suggest the edit. Not sure where your information came from but I feel the book I got my information from is the most accurate.

Herodias Long & John Hicks
Hi Linda, I am contacting you about Memorial # 34224625 for Herodias Long Hicks Gardiner Porter and her first husband. You state that this is not the John Hicks that was born to the Pilgrims Robert and Margaret Hicks. Half of that is right in that Margaret is not the mother of John, but Robert is with his first wife Elizabeth Morgan. Robert and Elizabeth had: Elizabeth, Thomas, John, Sarah and Richard. Elizabeth, Thomas, and Sarah died, but John and Richard followed their father to America later. It is described in "The Great Migration" for Robert Hicks and "North American Families" for Robert Hicks. Robert also married Margaret Winslow and had: Samuel, Lydia, Phoebe, Mary (who died), and Ephraim. Hope that helps and that you had a wonderful Holiday. Connie Fullmer

Pole Hill Cemetery
Hi linda,
Merry Christmas !!
Pole Hill is not the original name for this cemetery, it was Tarbell Hill Cemetery.
I did not know if you started the front page & description, if so please add that information to front page.
Thank you !!!
Sincerely, Laurie ( a Tarbell relative )

Extending the previous comment, there is likewise duplicates for the husband of Thanks:

Ralph Shepard # 5121803
(created 2000)

Ralph Shephard # 37227772
(yours, created 2009)

You clearly here created a page when one had already existed for almost a decade, and yours lacks a burial location, so yours should be merged into the other.

Thankslord Perkins Shepard
This memorial of yours is one of a set of triplicates. The following three entries all refer to the same woman:

Thankslord Perkins Shepard # 37227793
(yours, created May 2009)

Thank Ye Lord Shepherd # 41339562
(created August 2009)

Thanklorde Thanks Perkins Shepard # 70683819
(created May 2011)

Given that they all have different details, dates and places, this will likely require some coordination between the three members responsible, but it is not in the best interest of the project to continue having three alternative sets of information referring to the same woman.

Hi, Linda,

Thank you so much for all the work you do for Find A Grave, including this memorial for my 10th great aunt, above. I am hoping that you can give me some background about the source(s)of the information you have posted there.

In particular, I have searched for any record of her birth, and I have found none. Now I find her memorial with an exact date, and I am so excited!

Do you have the record or possibly know the person by whom it was obtained? This could save me so much more work trying to find it!

Thanks in advance for whatever assistance you can give me,
