Bio and Links

As a descendant of many of the memorials I have placed on Findagrave (FAGrv), I wish to foremost, honor their lives & memories by adding as much as I can to their pages.
As a dilettante genealogist I love to delve into family history.
My circle of family names include.
(All families living in New England
or with Northern US roots).
Parkinson, Allen, Batchelder, Bartlett
& Leroy (NY & New England)
Babcock, Clark, Tyrer, Knight,
Wilbur & Irish families (ditto)
Earl family of Western NY,PA & NJ
Waite & Buchanan
(Related to the Earl family)
Ahles, Warner & Reuter
(German immigrants to Western NY)

If you wish to add information or wish to have memorials transfered please use the
SUGGESTION LINK (SAC Suggest A Correction)

Findagrave has guidelines for transfers
(4 generations I think). I will gladly extend beyond the 4 Gen's if you are a serious researcher. Also I believe, that if you wish to honor a deceased distant relation (or a friend) than I will not stand in the way of your efforts.
Some people believe transfer requests should not be made for memorials of friends or for family surnames strictly for genealogical purposes. I don't buy this notion! I believe that genealogists help us as a connection between the living & the dead, distinguishing who we are & whence we came. So, if you are researching a family name & see that I have entered numerous surnames of interest, I would be happy to transfer the whole lot to you
(unless of course I am also researching the same name).
I would be be most grateful if other people would allow me the same courtesy. :^)

Links of Interest:

Please visit Don Gentner's compilation of German immigrants to Western New York from Baden Germany.
The Wiesental~Springville connection

Unfortunately, due to time constraints, I am no longer able to do lookups & genealogical searches for other families research.
This also includes going to Libraries, Courthouses, & Cemeteries to search for records & tombstone information.

I will still make additions & corrections to FAGrv [only using the SAC's (Suggest A Correction) edit link]. When you SAC it is important to be signed on to Findagrave & if you are suggesting family links, please give the name of the person to be linked, their relationship & their memorial number (this makes the process so much easier :^). PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME DIRECTLY ASKING FOR FAGrv CORRECTIONS. Due to the large number of SAC's requests that I receive daily, It may take up to 30 days for memorials to be updated.
AGAIN, USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION for both updates requests and transfer requests. This provides me with both the memorial link and the link to your member number, and then I do not have to search for either item.
Requests left on my "leave a message" page will be at the bottom of my priority list. I am sorry for this inconvenience.

I will try to leave a message on the requesters FAGrv homepage when I have completed the task & I will also try to add data from SAC's to
WeRelate is a free public-service wiki for genealogy sponsored by the Foundation for On-Line Genealogy in partnership with the Allen County Public Library. It is the world's largest genealogy wiki with pages for over 2,065,000 people and growing. WeRelate is currently in beta. It is supported by volunteers and your tax-deductible donations.
Please check into this free website & consider sharing your memorial information with other researchers.

I do have quite a collection of cemetery records & photos of burials in Concord, Collins & parts of Sardinia/ Boston/ Colden (Erie Co., NY) cemeteries.
I'm slowly adding these records to FAGrv & again as time permits.
My wife & I have submitted many of these records to the Town of Concord Genealogy Library aka

"The Lucy Bensley Genealogy Center"

located on North Buffalo Street in Springville, New York,
(PO Box 425)

Thank you very much for the transfer. I really appreciate it and have added to the memorial this morning. I have quit asking for a transfer because so many people will not do it.

Levi Hawkins
Thomas, I have hit a wall with Levi Hawkins b 1778 Newburgh, NY. He died 11 June 1823. I am not able to find his parents. Are you familiar with this Hawkins family? His wife was Gertrude Reynolds. I have little on her as well. Also buried in the Caroline, Tomkins Co. NY cemetery.

Hi Thomas,
My search for my Hawkins ancestory ends with Jeriah Hawkins.I have a clear understanding of his decendants but nothing of his lineage other than he came from Mass. I have a picture of his wife Lucinda Thomas Bartlett)
Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.
