I have been our family's genealogist/historian for over 40 years, and many of these folks I've added to "findagrave" are my family and friends.
Howard Street Cemetery in Northboro, MA is the location of our main family lots, so I have spent many hours there. While there I try to add any grave photos and names of those that appear to be missing from the "findagrave" site. If any of your family are in Howard Street I will gladly turn over management if you wish.
I love to research original settlers for the Tucson, AZ area. Most of the original graves are long gone, including any identifying markers. But the city managed to relocate remains to several different cemeteries in this area, and the stories of many of these pioneers live on. It is my pleasure to merge the stories of the persons with their final resting places.
RE: Timothy Noonen James Vincent Nunan, son of Timothy Nunan and Manry Donavan, had two wives, both named Anna. He first married Anna Murphy, by whom he had one daughter, Clara. She died young and he then married Anna Laura Clements, by whom he had four children, all now deceased: Timothy James Nunan, Paul Duane Nunan (my father-in-law), Cecelia Mary Nunan, Jane Kathleen Nunan. All four left descendants. I cannot tell you a lot about Timothy and Mary other than that Timothy immigrated from Ireland, probably County Cork, and Mary was born in New York (both parents were born in Ireland). If you want to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I can send you some photos.
We would be somewhere around 11th cousins, as I noticed your lovely F-a-G Memorials, for our 12th Great Grandparents, as well as, your flowers, listing Mary Whitney (Bray) as your Lineage. She is also, mine. I would love to share notes and links and trees, etc. It´s always a great feeling, to find new family. Thank you, again, for creating their lovely Memorials.
Moses Gray Carolyn, I am so glad to find a fellow Grays of Worcester researcher. I am a great granddaughter of George Moses Gray, who went out to California to work for John Bidwell when Asa Gray recommended him for the job. I will try to find a copy of the book you cited The Grays of Worcester. I have not yet been to Sauquoit. is the Gray home still there? I have lovely quilts made by the Gray ladies in that house.
First I would like to say thank you for your work on creating my aunt and cousin's page. I have sent you edits for my aunt to be linked to my Grandmother and Grandfather Pollock and I believe I sent a link to link my Uncle to my Cousin. I am hoping I sent them to the right administrator.
Unfortunately we've added my father to the cemetery and would like to see the family linked together when you get the chance.
Thank you so much for all that you do! It is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your volunteer efforts on Find A Grave.
Andrew Yaw is buried in the Cypress Hills National Cemetery in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York.
He served as a Private in Company B, 157th New York Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War.
He was wounded in his head on July 1, 1863 during the first day's battle at Gettysburg. This wound resulted in apoplexy of the brain. He died on August 22 at Ft. Schuyler, located in New York Harbor. It's actually in the Bronx, Bronx County.
He enlisted in the Army on August 7, 1862 at Oneida, New York, at the age of 23.
Hopefully, you'll be able to change his burial location to Cypress Hills National Cemetery.
There is a photo of his headstone at Cypress Hills on Find A Grave. Please see Memorial Number: 95418916.
