My contributions to this website had been limited to leaving a legacy for family members, so most of my efforts had been dedicated to writing brief biographies for those that I have known or researched. My hope was that those who read these biographies would appreciate the lives of ordinary people as well as those who became famous or infamous. Among my more famous relatives are Mayflower passengers in 1620, Richard Warren (through my paternal grandmother's lineage) and William White (through my maternal grandmother's lineage) and filles du roi Marie (Sel) Guillemet and Anne (Perrault) Blais who pioneered Quebec (through my maternal grandfather's lineage). My maternal grandmother was also descended from Joseph Stone, a son of William and Elvira (Davis) Stone, of Dana, Massachusetts, in the valley now covered by the Quabbin Reservoir.
Curiosity has led me to document a few others not directly related to me or my family.
Joseph Stone Gayle I have been researching my family and looking for an elusive Mayflower connection. Your comments about your Grandmother's connection and descendant of Joseph Stone caught my attention. My mother is also a direct descendant of Joseph Stone. Would you be willing to share your Mayflower connection through Joseph if it indeed does go through him? I would appreciate any assistance you may be able to provide. Thank you.
RE: Guilmette, Gethsemane Cem. Just got more info about "Bob" Guilmette from his obit. If you Google his name you can get the full obit. I uploaded much of it to his site. Seems he was with his daughter in NJ at the end. Do you want me to let you manage his site?
It looks like I transferred some Browns to you a few years back in Warwick Cemetery. I was wondering if you get around to it to just delete the note "Warwick Cemetery Transcription by Ryan......." etc. It seems kind of tacky 7 years later. I've deleted most of the ones I control.
Guilmette, Gethsemane Cem. Hi Gail, I just uploaded Joseph Guilmette who died in 2012 to Find A Grave. Noticed that others in this lot have incorrect listing for location. Instead of Calvary Section, BMA2 it should be Calvary Section, Row MA, Lot 2. That is how it is listed in the cemetery record. Almost have Gethsemane completed. Will be glad to transfer management of Joseph's site to you if you wish. Hope all is well with you. Sue
