Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born Dawn Marie Fray and raised in Troy, Rensselaer, New York. I have spent the past few years researching my family history. I have been to several cemeteries (Garfield, East Nassau Rural, Elmwood Hill, Mountain Grove (Bridgeport, Conn), St. Michael's (Stratford, Conn.)and have photos of both family and others buried in those cemeteries. If anyone finds a error in my submissions, please feel free to contact me so that I can make changes. Information provided is from research I have found.
If you would like to take ownership of your family member(s), please just let me know. They should be with family :)

Hi Dawn: I don't see much recent activity, hope you are well. I just entered "Aunt Jen", Jennie Williams in East Nassau. I also submitted a photo request. My question for you, is do you know which Williams family her husband John came from? I'm inclined to think it's the same branch as her sister Carrie married into, but no facts. He is not with the family in the 1900 census, but was back to have a son Richard A. in 1905. Then in 1907, Jennie died and most of the kids were farmed out to the cousins. John vanished. Any thoughts?

Hope your summer is going well, ours is full of smoke.
