Gary, when you take someone else's photos off of ancestry and add them anywhere else as your own without giving credit... duh, that is theft. I inherited those pix, not you. Give credit where credit is due.

Play fair cousin

RE: Ezekial bonney correction
Ezekial Bonney 39849087 and his wife Nancy Venon Bonney 39849175 are both buried in Center Cemetery not City Cemetery.

Their daughter Nancy Bonney Richards 39849850 is buried in City Cemetery.

You had notes on all three of these memorials that said you were not sure of the cemetery.

You will need to change Ezekial and his wife to Center Cemetery. I got this information from Conneaut, Ohio History & Genealogy website:

The website has a list of several cemeteries. This is the main page link:

Sorry for the confusion,

Bonney Cemetery's SAD condition:(
Hi Gary~ THANK YOU for your extensive posting - we share many Sumner, Oxford Co., Maine, ancestors & your work has saved me MUCH research!
I joined Maine Old Cem. Asso. last yr. to learn how to properly care for/clean/repair ancestors' gravestones & visited most of the Oxford Co. sites except for the small Bonney Cemetery.
Do you know of anyone who would help me restore it?
I convinced MOCA to host their 2016 Preservation Workshop in Wilton, ME, so Oxford & Franklin Co. folks could attend this coming Aug. 19-22. Here's the link...registration details to come this spring:

Simeon Bonney # 80161058
Hi Gary,

Could you tell me what source you have that says Simeon Bonney is the son of Isaac and Mary Bonney? The Massachusetts Town and Vital Records 1620-1988 lists:

Isaac 1729-1729
Sarah 1731
Mary 1733
Ebenezar 1735
Samuel 1737
Mehetabel 1739
Elizabeth 1746
Abigail 1749

for a total of 8 children. Simeon is not listed as one of the children.

I have been trying to contact you through your email but I have not received a response so I'm not sure you are getting my emails.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Edith Orilla Bonney
Hi Gary,

She is called Orilla in the records, but her full name was Edith Orilla Bonney. She is my second great-grandmother. I have some information that my father left me including little biographies that her daughter, Inie Mae Gage, wrote about her parents, her husband, etc. I'd be happy to scan and share if you are interested. I would love to find out more about Nancy Venon. I've tried all the usual internet sources, and I can't find anything.

Have a blessed Christmas,

Hello Mr. Gary!

I have walked and photographed every stone at Elwood Cemetery in East Sumner, Maine and was looking at your two memorials for Alvin Dotan and his wife, Eliza.

I can't find a single Dotan burial anywhere in Oxford County, Maine, or the entire Find-A-Grave! Where did you get this last name?

I'll be glad to help you any way I can - I'm very resourceful; I really would like to get these two memorials completed!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
