Bio and Links
Bio Photo My philosophy with Find A Grave is that it is important to provide correct information and not just "collect" memorials as some do. I am happy to transfer memorials that are not in my genealogy line to others with connections (please request via edits tab and state your connections). I welcome photos, corrections, adds, links and other information.

I always try to find out more information about memorials I have helped create. It is always a work in process!

I work with several historical societies and volunteer many hours for helping with genealogy in my area. I am also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. History is important to me.

Particular research projects at the moment include documentation of veterans and early settlers in Ada Township, Ada, MI in partnership with the Ada Historical Society.

Some of my family surnames (maternal line) include Abbott, Abby, Abell, Acie, Allen, Atherton, Averill, Ayer, Ayers, Bacon, Balch, Baldwin, Basset, Bayford, Beadle, Beck, Belknap, Birdsall, Bliss, Blott, Bourne, Bowen, Brooks, Brown, Buell, burt, Chaffee, Chandler, Chapin, Clapp, Clark, Cogan, Cole, Cooke, Cox, Crowell, Cummings, Dennis, Dibble, Dickinson, Dole, Dormer, Eggleston, Eggleton, Felt, Ford, Foxwell, Fuller, George, Gowdy, Graves, Greensleet, Hall, Hammond, Harper, Harriman, Hart, Hayes, Heriot, higgins, Hill, Holcomb, Honnor, Hunt, Hutchinson, Hyatt, Hynton, Ingersol, Jackson, Jones, Kibbe, Knowlton, Lee, Lemon, Livermore, Lord, Loring, Luther, Martin, Merrill, Miller, Newberry, Newton, Ortowski, Osborn, Osburn, Parker, Parrott, partridge, Paskoe, Pearce, Pease, Phelps, Phippen, Plant, Post, Potter, Prescott, Proctor, Randall, Richards, Richardson, Rigby, Rowley, Rudd, Rust, Scarborough, Soane, Stallion, Starke, Stebbins, Stevens, Stratton, Swan, Talcott, Taylor, Thompson, Treloar, Veysey, Wales, Wall, Wallingford, Ward, Warren, Washborne, Wells, Whiting, Wilbur, Wiliams, Wilmarth, Wise, Wood, Woodford, Worchester, Wright

Greetings, Lydia!

Many thanks for the info re: the whereabouts of the Robinsons' original gravestones. I updated their pages accordingly, and have cited you as the source of this info in the "Notes" section.

Best regards,

Hi Lydia,

Thanks for the note.

Your idea is a good one, and I plan to restart this project sometime soon. To briefly explain, my original account somehow vanished between 2002 and 2004. I was deployed and unable to maintain the records. Meanwhile Findagrave went through an "upgrade" and everything was lost. I feel bad because several people had sent me their kin to add to the listing, and now they will have to do so again, if they can find me and my new account.

However a friendly message from you tells me that it's time to dig up the old muster rolls and get at it. Thanks for the encouragement.

Take Care,
