Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired nurse and am currently devoting most of my time to family research.
I embarked on my genealogical quest over twenty five years ago. My mother died in 1988 and left behind a small treasure trove of interesting letters, post cards and newspaper clippings. The most interesting letters dated back to the Civil War. I had to know who these people were. I discovered that I am a direct and indirect descendant from about half of the first settlers in Hartford, Connecticut in 1635 (on my mother's side). I have since filled two filing cabinets with records and family files, and have over 15,000 people in my database.
The first time I walked into a cemetery and found a family name, I was hooked. I learned that most people hate cemeteries. I love them.
Most of my entries are family, or extended family. If I have made any errors, please let me know and I will correct them. If you are more closely related to any of the people I have entered, please feel free to ask for a transfer. Just click the edit tab in the upper right-hand corner of the memorial and leave me a message.

RE: Sarah Bliss Scott Terry
I agree, for the most part I can't complain about those that I've come in contact with on this site but there are those that don't want to help, change or transfer to a family

Anna Langdon, Westhampton Center.
Thank You for bringing that to my attention, so often the 3's & 5's on older headstones are tricky to differentiate! Jim

Fanny Warfield Winchell
Janice I have added all the information to the memorial that I created for Ann Frances "Fanny" Warfield Winchell. It appears the headstone was never carved for her death date Dec 11 or Dec 1 depending upon the source referenced. I don't know where her child is buried. I am guessing in Blandford with her mother. The records in Granville are a mess. I have been working on the cemeteries in Granville for 4 years and the town records are a real challenge. Most of the records seem to have been created from the headstones. Sexton records for the earlier cemeteries are incomplete. I hope the information I posted helps your research. I have no idea about the other memorial because it is for Wariner not Warfield. It may be another person in the cemetery. I can't speak for Beckie Cross and her source. As you can see from the photo on mine it is indeed Warfield. and most likely not the same person as Beckie's.

I transferred management of the memorials to you, so you can continue linking and updating your family as needed.
