Bio and Links
Bio Photo I try to be as accurate as possible with my submissions. If you find any errors contact me. use the "Edit" tab at the memorial and then "Suggest a correction" to send me any updated information or corrections.

IMPORTANT: make sure you include an email address or have the ability to be contacted when sending corrections. Sometimes I have been sent a correction that has a typo or error and I may need to contact you to verify the information

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives, This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren only!
Any non-direct relatives ,(aunts, uncles, cousins), 2nd great grandparents & beyond are not required to be transferred.

Explain your relationship in the request!

I receive hundreds of edits a week and generally except. If something is incorrect with relationships just send me a message and I will remove.


Thanks,
John

West Cemetery Litchfield, Connecticut
Thank you for the memorials you have created for the Civil War veterans in this cemetery. I am researching the 2nd Connecticut Heavy Artillery and have been adding headstone pictures to their memorials and other veterans memorials you created. Please let me know if you have any comments on the photos and thanks again, JIM

Ann Hebard/Hibbard
The Ann that you have connected to Dr.Jos. Hibbard/Hebard & nna Strickland is incorrect.. It was Ann Hebard B.1730-D. 1741. The other Ann was the daughter of John Hibbard & Martha Durkee. She married the 2 men Newton & Francis Fenton married 1758}. She died 1759.

Thank you
#76294445 & 60241420 are my ancestors. I am most grateful for you taking the time to not only bless me with these photographs, but all of us descendants. May God bless you for your labors on our behalf.

I shall be adding all of their children and parents as Find-a-graves gives us the numbers. This site is a gift to all genealogists, in my humble opinion. This way others can learn what America is really all about, each of us helping others who can not help themselves.

As a person who is homebound, you have allowed me to visit my deceased relatives. I thank you and all those who do this work.
