Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, My name is Bonnie. Along with my sister we have been doing genealogy since 1996. We have traveled as far as Massachusetts to take pictures of ancestors headstones. My brother-in-law enjoys driving us to all places and we have him going every which way. LOL. I enjoy research and hope to be able to help others with theirs. I greatly enjoy this website to locate other family members we cannot always travel to. Through the years we have met a lot of very nice people, and found many members of our extended family. Hope we can continue to travel and meet new people. It is such a joy.
If anyone finds a correction or wants to add more information or wishes to have a photo removed that I have entered please feel free to contact me.

Nelson Blodgett Memorial# 31262576

Nelson Blodgett is a great grandfather of mine. I have been trying to track down a birth record for him as he is one of my links to a Revolutionary War Patriot, in this case his grandfather, Timothy Blodgett. If I can document the birth, I can complete an application to the SAR. Unfortunately, his death record does not indicate his parents.

Since I have records indicating he was born in New Hampshire but there are no records there either.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Clarksville Cemetery Van Steenburg?
Hi I had found different spellings of the last name common in those days I created new listings so if one checks for a different spelling they can find. As you can see here grave markers are different.
So as you can see th
Also checked with some members at here is 1 response.
(Hi Dave, Good question. There are several versions of the same name. I've seen it as Van Steenburgh, Van Steenburg, Van Steenburgen, and my own Van Steensburg. There are many reasons for the spelling differences. Official record keepers (tax collectors, census, church birth records) would spell it as it sounded and depending upon how the person pronounced it and how the person heard it, the difference came about. It's all the same family though. I noticed the extra 's' snuck into my name around the time of my great-great, Frederick.
Through research I have found that the Dutch didn't take last names as seriously as we all do. They often took a name that described their profession, such as Timmerman (carpenter) or where they were from Van Steen Burg (of or from the stone village). Back in the 1600's Kingston NY where the family settled was know for the blue slate it quarried. The original ancestor was Jan Van Amersfoort (Amersfoort being a town in Holland). I've enjoyed the research and have found a few monkeys and outlaws hanging from the family tree over the years. I hope this info will be helpful.
I believe I've saved several of your cemetery photos to my collection. Thank you for posting.)
Thanks Bonnie , Dave

RE: Taylor , James and Eletha Legate
I'll look to see if I have a photo of Elthea, but I don't think that I do. James Taylor was my Great Great Grandmother's brother and the one photo I have of him was in her (Delia Elizabeth Taylor Smith)family bible. I do have a few photos of a Rose Taylor Dubois who I understand was a daughter of Herbert Taylor, granddaughter of James.

Payson Ballou
While searching in the Old Burying Grounds in Gardner, MA, I was able to find Payson's parents headstone, but only a very small stone next to it with the writing on it so far worn down that it is impossible to know if it is that of Payson or not. Sorry I could not of been more help to you. Sandy
