Bio and Links
Bio Photo ***********************

If I place a memorial in an incorrect cemetery or if cremains are later buried, please let me know the location of the burial so my memorials are correct.


Please use the Edit tab located at the top right of the memorial to let me know of any corrections/additions to my listings so that I may make the updates.

I spend a lot of time increasing the volume and accuracy of biographical information and links even for unrelated families.

I began studying my family history in 1976 and have been at it ever since. I love searching for members of my family tree and learning all I can about their lives.

Personal focus of research on:

The Lyman Family in America: the Ancestors & Descendants of Richard Lyman & Sarah Osborne from High Ongar, England, 1631.

Thomas Tolman, from Salcombe Regis, Devon, England and arrived in America in 1635 and settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

RE: Oliver Lyman (1796-1843-5), a son of Gad Lyman & Prudence Bill
Unfortunately there was an error in our DAR prospective's lineage. She does not descend from Oliver Lyman.

Whitney Kipp #152803367
I like to read old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and try to match the people to their memorials. I believe I have found a story from the Washington Times dated 10/6/1916 about Whitney Kipp.

Thought you might find this interesting.

corrected my first submission, it says, "Sacred to," not "Buried in," after using a magnifying glass and realizing that yes, it says "Sacred to," not what I submitted at first. Please update. Thanks.
