Bio and Links
Bio Photo With the invaluable help of Bob Wheeler, Sharon Daly, Gail Smith and Isabel Weigold I've been collecting photos from cemeteries which contain the gravestones and monuments of people having a connection to the families I'm researching: Maynard, Ashley, Bump, Green, and Johnson are some of those families, mostly from New England and New York, with connections to Sweden on my father's side of the family. I was so excited to learn I had posted the 7 millionth name to findagrave - that of my great-grandfather, August Gustafsson, in Sweden! Both sets of my paternal great-grandparents are buried in the same cemetery - hope you can go and visit.

Since I am currently living in Central Florida, I post what I can from cemeteries in my immediate area including: Socrum Cemetery, Griffin, Tiger Flowers, Lakeview and Roselawn, all in Lakeland; also, I'm adding mostly photos to pages of the American Legion Cemetery in Tampa, Florida.

I'm gradually setting up some virtual cemeteries, and hope you'll stop by and leave some flowers if and when you have the time.

(Oct. 4, 2006 - My father, Alf H. Gustafson died August 21st at the age of 90, and the day after we returned from his memorial service(s) in Connecticut I created a page for him at the State Veterans' Cemetery, Middletown, CT. He and my mother each have a page there now, and I'm so relieved knowing they are together again for eternity. Their pages are such a source of comfort for me, and I hope for other family members also - and virtual flowers will be so welcomed...thank you all.)

EVERY morning I drink coffee from a findagrave mug - I just realized it's no longer available in the findagrave catalog, so that probably makes it a collectible!

If you want me to respond to a message, please make sure you include the name of the cemetery, as well as the location, by which I mean the city/town and the state! Please be aware I have no personal info or contact with family members, except my own, of course!

Maynard and Beebe
I just looked at Sarah and James - you did a WONDERFUL job of getting the parents in and now you can see all of the brothers and sisters - that was a lot of work!

Thanks for all of your hard work!

RE: Maynard
Thanks for the transfer of Victor. As for James, one of my cousins married his sister and had children, so I am also related.

James was related to your Bumps, and also Pecks. If you don't want to transfer Sarah Marian to me -thats's OK or if you decide to - that's OK also. I am just trying to get everybody hooked up so that you can toggle between parents, siblings and spouses on Find A Grave instead of the constant searching. I have some more info to put in on Sarah Marian when I can find it - my mom was very close with her growing up and talked about them both.

Thank you for all of the memorials you have put in. Our family is very grateful.

Matilda Snow & Eleazer Walcott
hi Karlyn: I just re-read my message of 3/22/14 & realized I didn't include the cemetery for the above. It is: Old Willington Hill Cemetery in Willington, CT. I would also like to request 4 more SNOW ancestors and they are: Eliza Snow Sparrow (#10215639) & husband George Sparrow (#10215638), both at Old West Cemetery. She is also my gr/gr aunt. Then there is: George Snow (#10215524) my gr/gr uncle & his wife, Helen Snow (#10215668), both at Old West Cemetery. If you would be willing to transfer these folks to my care, that'd be gr8 & thanks!! Nancy Snow West #47419745.

Ebay Hatch
After 9000 hours of research, I have confirmed my relationship to my fifth-great grandfather, Ebay or Ebenezer Hatch. You have kindly recorded him in the Willington Cemetery, Connecticut. May I take over his memorial? I am the only living person that knows his family connections. Thank you. Verena Blackburn # 47241141

James Albert O'Guin #10695131 is buried in Socrum Cem, Polk Co, Florida. His wife Mary Frances Wilsdorf O'Guin #10695145 is buried there also. You made an edit for me recently regarding James Albert O'Guin, but my second request to link them together must have gotten lost before my request to correct Mary's maiden name from Wildorf to Wilsdorf. Find a Grave has been very spotty for me lately, sorry for the confusion.

Thanks! Randy O'Guin, ranny 47208269
