Since my first exposure to the internet I envisioned a place where you could go to take a virtual tour of all the historic sites and monuments in an area. |
After the passing of his brother my Dad reconnected with his first cousins which lead to a long overdue family reunion.
That experience triggered a thirst in me for knowledge about my family history, branches of which, as it turns out, extend some 18 generations, containing some of the oldest names in Americas history, including my gggggreat-grandfather, Thomas "Yankee Doodle" Fitch, who is buried only a block from my home.
My new found knowledge, combined with my long held vision for the internet and a knack for all things "computer" started me on a quest to find a way to share the information that I had gathered with others like myself who were searching for their past.
I wanted to do it in a way that information was not locked behind a monthly membership fee… in a way that I could swap information with others that had info to share.
Well imagine my delight when I discovered that such a place already existed. I applaud this project and am willing to contribute wherever I can.
I currently serve as trustee for some of the oldest cemeteries in my area and have a passion for the history therein.

Thank you for doing this for us. Not sure when we would get to Norwalk. This is very special. Phil was and is a true American Hero.

The monument as you can see, is easily found once you know what you are looking for. The cemetery on Christian St is on the left as you are ging south from B'water. The left side is he older section of
the cemetery. In the middle section there is a
mix of old and more recent burials. The Wixons are in this middle section toward the back of the cemetery. Good luck in your exploration. You might want to contact Janet who developed the initial memorials and see if she might transfer the memorials to you...since you are "family" it would seem a valid request.
Thank you for taking the time and looking for the marker for my newly discovered cousin Elizabeth Whitney. I know that the old markers are very hard to locate or there simply is no marker. But I wanted to say thanks for taking the time and looking. Have a great day.

Hello. I see you have a memorial in for John Millay with dates different that what I recorded out of the Town Clerk's records in Bowdoinham. You have a 10 year difference in birth year than the record book. Do you know where he is buried and does the stone have your dates on it ? Thanks

Hello, I had tried to utilize the ‘Suggest a correction' link but it is not enabled the Fitch family memorials. Thomas Fitch (III) and Hannah Hall would be my 8th Great Grandparents. You have great enthusiasm for the work you have done; the memorials are great to see. I am contacting you about the memorial for Thomas "GOV" Fitch (Find A Grave Memorial# 5013). The ‘V' is incorrect, and I am sorry, I think of a Mel Brooks film when I hear ‘Gov". The suffix for Honorable Governor Thomas Fitch commonly referenced as being IV. The page 48 of the Barbour Collection cites him as marrying Hannah Hall and uses the suffix "Jr". For a good summary of Thomas Fitch IV and Thomas Fitch V, the link at the Connecticut State Library, http://www.cslib.org/gov/fitcht.htm, has a great short biography listed. The link can be located on the Norwalk Historical Society site at http://www.norwalkhistoricalsociety.org/AboutFitchnew.html.
I do not know why the "Suggest a Correction" is not working on these memorials; let me know if I can assist in any way. Always interested in meeting my cousins.

Hi, I have a question, would you happen to know any of their decendents? I maybe making a quantem leap, seeing as I have not yet found concrete proof. But I believe these maybe my ancestors, the only names I have to link them to are 2 century's of decendents away. Christopher Carver born in Pennsylvania in 1705, his mother and father Christopher Carver and Isabel Welding both also born in Pennsylvania. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

The only Millay's found at Sea View Cemetery are on the Rockport side, not Rockland. The names are the same but Sarah is listed as a "Salisbury" with the same DOB & DOD along with a few other members of the family. Are these the same people your looking for?
