Past President of the Mount Vernon Genealogical Society (www.mvgenealogy.org) & 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.

|Roberta Earls||Parental Link in Error|
Just wanted to let you know that William McCann was my mother-in-law's brother and the parental link to Jake McCann listed on the Find A Grave record is incorrect. His father was also William McCann, who died in 1955, in Southbridge MA and is buried there.

I left a message here a few weeks back asking for the transfer of my GGgrandparents and my GGgrandfather's parents and I can not longer find the message. I also emailed you. Could you please respond back to let me know if I am doing the process wrong? Thank you. :)
Thank you for linking Elisha Grant to his parents. I appreciate your time!

John Holmes was born 1611 in Milton Keys, Buckingham, England. He died 13 Oct 1667 in Plymouth, Massachusetts. He married in 1635 Elizabeth Sarah Tilson who was born 20 Oct 1615 in Plymouth and died 18 Oct 1650 in Plymouth.
From what we can figure (not verified) his father is Charles Holmes and Mother Elizabeth Nicholls. Charles Holmes was born 23 August 1584 in Milton Keys, Buckingham, England.

I'm Katie H., also a member of Find A Grave and have been doing research on several hundred early immigrants to New England. I posted a comment on my 9th g-grandmother's memorial, that of "Sarah Tilley Lynn Gunnison Mitchell Morgan"...to save you the time of looking it up, here's what I posted: "Hi, all: Sarah was my 9th great grandmother. It's almost certain that she was NOT the daughter of William Tilley (I've been researching this for years!) Sarah's 1st husband, Henry Lynn, left her without support and sailed off to Virginia (and to his eventual untimely passing). Afterwards she married Hugh Gunnison, by all accounts, a very decent guy. As for her parentage, here's a hugely important fact...She was NOT the daughter of Will Tilley; she was his STEP-daughter. The 3rd supplement to the book "Torrey's New England Marriages prior to 1700", updated and published in 2003, clears it all up. Problem is that there are precious few copies of the book (I found it at the LDS Fam. Hist. Library in Salt Lake City), and some wrong information is contained in earlier versions. Sara's mother, Alice Frost, was married to Thomas Blower before she married Tilley, and was referred to in legal documents (concerning a lawsuit against her for her work as a midwife) as Mrs. Blower at the time of Sarah's birth. Here is a transcribed extract from page 255: "TILLEY, William & Alice (Frost) BLOWER; m1 Thomas BLOWER Boston [TAG 71;113]." In this case, "m1" means "married first (to)". Thomas Blower had defended and supported his wife vigorously during the lawsuit, which had taken place in England, but it is believed she left England for the new world because of this trouble, and the name Blower was problematic for her, even after Thomas Blower's death. So, daughter Sarah adopted the last name of her mother's second husband, Mr. Tilley. In fact, in a later deposition, Sarah does not call Will Tilley her father; she calls him her "Father Tilley". Good luck to all my distant cousins researching this family...I hope this helps!

.............So, Linda, I did try to use the edit button on the memorial itself but it only allows corrections to the memorial number of relatives, not names. So many people are getting this wrong...I believe the reason is that Torrey's most recent supplement (no. 3) with the smoking gun information is so scarcely available. I could sure use your help in seeing this memorial corrected. I thank you for all your research and for any sort of assistance you could provide in straightening out this mess. Thanks again!! Katie H.

|TheresaReneeTossas||Elinor (Arnold) Whitney 48875311|
I/We am currently, also, researching the Whitney Branches. [I am a 4th great granddaughter of
Araminta Margaret Grosvenor (Whitney) Houser and Hiram Grosvenor]
We are just trying to obtain information/documentation on Elinor's, to date! unknown parentage and one of the collaborators, of this project, has come across your memorial.
Unfortunately, the picture of the stone, added to your memorial, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=48875311
for her, is illegible.
My question is, how did she come by the "Arnold", as a maiden name and would you be willing to share the source information and possibly known parents names/links/memorials, with us, so we may check this mystery off of our collective Whitney branch, as resolved?
Thanking you in advance, for your time and consideration in this matter.
34190582 Sorry I accidentally left flowers twice, can you remove one? Thanks, Jo
