RE: Samuel Fuller
Hi Truman Fullers wife was Lucy Harding Fuller. She was born April 24,1804 Otsego, N.Y. She didn't die until Nov.3,1898 in Sorrento, Fla.
She is a decendant of Thomas Rogers,Mayflower Passenger. Her grandfather was Benjamin Harding,who died in the revolutionary war and is buried on hog hill, Ct. No one seems to know where she was buried. Most probably Fla. She lived with her daughter. She also helped her son Truman raise my great gr.mother Ellen Mae Fuller, when her mother died at age 30.

Wequetequock Burial Ground
John, I have noted that you have taken some very fine photos of the grave markers in this cemetery in Stonington, CT. Do you know if all legible markers have been photographed in this cemetery either by you or another? There are 28 photo requests, some as old as 2008, so I am assuming that either no one is going to this cemetery or more likely, all the requests have either no marker or marker is no longer legible. We are in the area on a trip & I wondered if it was worth our effort to go there for some of my Palmer family that do not yet have grave marker photos.

Missing Tombstones at Old St. Joe's
Hi John,

I noticed that you have added the names of Patrick Doherty and Mary Ryle Doherty—plus their deceased children—to Waterbury's Old St. Joseph's Cemetery on In addition, you
also added James Dunnigan, who died on March 23, 1890. James was my great grand uncle. Previous to the 2011 vandalism incident, James had a very impressive obelisk marking his grave and the Doherty tombstones were clustered near his obelisk in the cemetery's section-L.

Recently I visited the cemetery with hopes of photographing their tombstones and I couldn't find any of them. Would you know if a list of the destroyed tombstones exists? The Dohertys were related to my great grandmother, Catherine Dougherty and James Dunnigan was the brother my great grandfather, Patrick Dunnigan. Patrick and Catherine are buried in Watertown's Mount St. James Cemetery and their grave is marked with an obelisk similar to James's. My email is

RE: Samuel Fuller
Hi John,Trumans wife died Nov.3 1898. Her name was Lucy Harding,. She was born April 24,1804
in Exeter,N.Y. She died in Sorrento, Lake County, Fla. Most of her children had moved to Fla. Her sons founded the city of Altamonte Springs, Fla. I was told her family was related to Warren G. Harding. I haven't looked in to it yet. I am assuming she is buried in Fla. She also had a grandfather who was George Washingtons physician and escorted Martha to many balls. Connie
