Bio and Links
Greetings! 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 such, this is what we can do in this regard.
*[Suggest A Correction] or (SAC) (edit) link found on the icon bar located just below the deceased persons name on their memorial page. If you have a suggested correction, please log on to Findagrave and follow the prompts.
If you wish to add a obituary, other memorial information
or to ask a question concerning the memorial, please use the "Suggest any other correction or addition" link option and I will respond asap.
*Private emails and questions left on my "Your Messages" page tend to be of a lesser priority and may take several days to complete.
*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. :^)
*In conjunction with the spirit of I also contribute my personal families genealogical information to Please see note below for additional information.
*You are welcome to use my photos for non-commercial purposes without obtaining my prior permission, as long as their use is within the rules and guidelines of, and the ownership source provided is clearly stated each time.
*Unfortunately, due to time constraints, I am no longer able to do family lookups & other genealogical researches.
This also includes going to Libraries, Courthouses, & Cemeteries to search for records & tombstone information.

My wife & I have submitted many of these records to the Town of Concord Genealogy Library aka

Grave stones-pine hill cemetery
Have you found a gravestone for Orrin Cortez Ransom?
I am certain he is buried at pine hill cemetery in Gowanda new York.
His grave would be by a larger stone "chester ransom"

if any info, please contact me.

Thank you very much for finding this! Isaac has been one of the tougher ancestors to research.

Can you read the line below the date of death, should be something like " x Y x M x D" for the age. Also is the date of death 1848 or 1818? Looks more like 1818 but could be 1848.

Mary Ann's maiden name is Bates
Mary Ann's maiden name is not Milks. That was her mother's maiden name. She was Sarah (Sally) Milks who married Asa Bates who lived his adult life in NY state. However, he was reported to have been born in MA or ME 7 July 1793. Since ME was not a state but a part of MA in 1793, either is correct.
I am searching for Asa's Bates parents who were probably born in what is now MA. Anyone know of Asa?
