I am a member of S.C.A.N. (Southern Connecticut Ancestry Network) which is a genealogy group located in Hamden, CT. Our goal is to post online all of the burials in our Town's Cemeteries. We started this project using the Hale Collection of CT Headstone Inscriptions, and the burial records from Hamden Plains Cemetery, Mt. Carmel Burying Grounds and Beaverdale Memorial Park.|

I have deleted my memorial. Yours had a lot more information than mine did.

|Amelia Christy||Eleanor Okeson|
I made the updates to her name and death location on the memorial. Please feel free to send me the obituary information so I can update her memorial more for you. Thanks!
Thank you for adding the information to Sarah's memorial.
I happen to run across the information on another project I am doing and checked to see if it was on her memorial.
I am not related to Sarah. Had thought it would be nice to have it added.
Again, thank you,

I only know of well and David Langbehn as children of
Otto Frank Langbehn
and Elizabeth Langbehn born 1909 in Connecticut.
It might be the wrong person. After the 1940 census they disapear.

Would you have an interest in this information about Sarah Boone...?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sarah Boone - Ironing Board.
The patent drawing for the ironing board invented by Sarah Boone.
Craven County, North Carolina
New Haven, Connecticut
Inventor of an ironing board improvement.
Sarah Boone (1832-1904) was an African American inventor who on April 26, 1892, obtained United States patent rights for her improvements to the ironing board. Boone's ironing board was designed to improve the quality of ironing sleeves and the bodies of women's garments. The board was very narrow, curved, and made of wood. The shape and structure allowed it to fit a sleeve and it was reversible, so one could iron both sides of the sleeve.
Boone was born Sarah Marshall in Craven County, North Carolina near the town of New Bern in February 1832. On November 25, 1847, in New Bern, she married a freedman named James Boone (or Boon); they would have eight children.
The Boone family left North Carolina for New Haven, Connecticut before the outbreak of the American Civil War; they settled into a house at 30 Winter Street. James Boone worked as a brick mason until his death in 1874 while his wife was listed in New Haven directories as a dressmaker.
Sarah Marshall Boone died in 1904 and is buried in a family plot in Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven.

Thank you for the transfer of my relatives. You're a dear! Thanks again.
|DWV||RE: Knight Hospital Memorial|
What a great project! You put in such a lot of work canvassing the area and taking all those photos. I'm been involved with a similiar project, and I integrated my photos and information into existing memorials via SAC'S, and only created memorials when they didn't already exist. Checking for existing memorials before creating new ones certainly takes more effort and time, but it results in cleaner data (I'm a database admin in real life). I try to avoid creating a duplicate whenver possible, according to Find A Grave policy. Since memorials created by others as well as my own can be included in a Virtual Cemetery, they can be accessed easily.
It took me two months to manually check the 6,000+ memorials in Evergreen before I uploaded a spreadsheet, but I feel it was worth my time.
Thanks to you, I researched Knight Hospital, and found Dr. Jonathan Knight (for whom the hospital was named) is buried in Grove St. Cemetery in New Haven. I plan to visit his grave soon.
Thank you for all you do to make Find A Grave such a valuable resource.
