"Each name recorded here is a memorial, and perhaps the only memorial, of a human heart that kept its pulsations through some period of time, and then ceased to beat and has mouldered into dust. |
"Each date had a great significance to some circle of human hearts.
"Memories are not only of death, but also of life. They died, but they had lived.
"All these names are memorials of human spirits that must pass from Time to Eternity, ready or unprepared, in youth or maturity; they go into Eternity, even as we are going.
"All must pass away and be no more.
"...a genealogy was a list of the gifts to a family given by the Creator. He thought such a record was a wonderful thing to have."
- From "The Clan of Tompkyns", by Robert Angus Tompkins, 1957
I am on a "mission" to document as many NY Civil War soldiers' graves as possible. There are so many that go unnoticed. I have discovered many graves that are tucked away in corners far removed from all the others. Some of them are surrounded by trees or brush. No one should be forgotten, especially those who served our country.
If I fulfill a photo request, I will take photos of any other people nearby with that same last name, including maiden names.
Please only submit corrections and/or additional information by clicking on the "Edit" tab on the top right corner of the memorial and then "suggest a correction/additional information".
There is a radiance and glory in the darkness could we but see;
And to see we have only to look.

I noticed the attached obit for Larry Baxter in the News Times and thought you might want to add it to your memorial.
Larry A. Baxter, age 58 of Bethel, died on Monday evening, December 30, 2007 at Danbury Hospital after being stricken ill at home. He was the husband of Donna (Lovejoy) Baxter. Larry was born in Danbury, February 13, 1949, a son of the late John E. Sr. and Doris (Pettit) Baxter. He attended local schools and graduated from Danbury High School. He was a U.S. Marine Corps Vietnam veteran. A member of the V.F.W. of Bethel, he was also a member of the Baptist Church of Danbury. He enjoyed collecting coins, baseball cards and playing the daily numbers. The greatest enjoyment was with his family and most especially delighted being grandpa with his grandchildren. In addition to his wife, Donna of 37 years, a son, Paul A. Baxter of Bethel; a daughter, Traci-Marie Jones and son-in-law, Lester of Bethel and their children, Rebecca Louise, Justin Lester and Lauren Lizbeth; two brothers, John E. Baxter Jr. and sister-in-law, Martha and their children Lisa and Kristin of Lilburn, Ga. and Alan E. Baxter and sister-in-law, Louise and their children Melissa, Stephanie and Jessica of Monroe, Ga. and an aunt, Beverly Banks, survive him. Funeral services will take place on Saturday at 5 p.m. in the Baptist Church of Danbury, 14 Granville Avenue, Danbury with the Rev. Dr. David Reinhart, Pastor, officiating. Burial will take place in Central Cemetery, Brookfield, in the spring. The family will receive friends in the Baptist Church on Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Baptist Church of Danbury would be greatly appreciated. Jowdy-Kane Funeral Home, 9-11 Granville Ave., Danbury is in charge of arrangements.

Do you ever respond to correction requests that are sent to you through the Edit system?
|N. Barrett||Union Valley Cemetery|
I am writing to share with you that Union Valley Cemetery is located in Mahopac, NY, not Carmel, it is a very fine line so it is difficult to tell.
|Joni Spellman Krause||Gays and Smiths|
May I use your photos on my tree at Ancestry.com? Thank-you, Joni
|Stephen Webb||Azubah & Clarissa Selleck|
I saw Azubah & Clarissa Selleck listed in a Virginia Cemetery, when their graver are in Putnam Valley, NY. I requested photos of these graves, since the birth and death date were the same as my ancestors. Can you help to clarify?
Many Thanks,Stephen Webb
|Jeanne Fleck||Lots of trouble...|
Hello there. My name is Jeanne Fleck from Stamford and I have recently started to hunt down my ancestors. There were lots of secrets in my family so it has been quite difficult and frustrating. At any rate I found a picture of a gravestone which could POSSIBLY be my grandparents: Mildred and Joseph Gilbert in the New St. Peter cemetary. Do you have any information which may help me in finding out 'who I am'? I'm trying very hard to leave a legacy for my children. Thanks so much. JGF
|Tiffany DeSimone||Mary Jane Johnston Hall|
Thank you for taking a picture of her grave for me.
|Roland McClure||Truman J. Gault|
I find that the memorial is incorrect in that there is no record or grave stone for him. He was a native of Castleton, Vt. and had no ties to Lyndonville,Vt. I don't expect to get a reply but it would be nice to know where you obtained the information.
