|Bio and Links|
My interest in documenting cemetery headstones began with using Find-A-Grave and other online resources as tools for my own research. Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!|
I've been researching my own family history for over 40 years and have authored and self published over 8 volumes of my family's history. These volumes contain hundreds of family surnames. Although most of my family lines stop at the water's edge, many others are connected back into medieval mists in both the UK and continental Europe.
I've taken adult and college level genealogy classes and have taught genealogy at local senior centers. I'm a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, Historic Northampton, and the Silicon Valley Genealogical Computer Group. I'm a life member of both the Parsons and Strong Family Associations of New England. Currently, I'm the Historian for the Parsons Family Association.
In my research, if I can't find the information I'm looking for in my own reference library, I have access to 4 excellent genealogical libraries in the area and many online tools.
Please submit any additions, corrections, biographies, or family links to me under "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" on the memorial page. I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to memorials under my control. Please be assured, I do most updates, corrections and links within a day or so.

Thank you for looking for me. I will have to do more research to figure out which cemetery he is in. Sorry to put you to the trouble.
|Khopper||RE: McClain memorials|
To me that is what it is all about. Not to own the most memorials.
Hope you have a wonderful day.

I hope they have been some help to you. When I add these I always wonder if anyone sees them. Good to hear it when they help someone.

Thanks for checking, Gary. I know there are plenty of New England Parsons families to keep you and your fellow researchers well occupied. Perhaps there's another group specializing in the Long Island family and its descendants.
|Eric Weber||RE: Newhall - Parsons|
I'm glad to help, Gary. Pine Grove Cemetery has been one of my favorite places in Conway for decades. There are LOTS of really lovely places in Conway, so that's saying something. I used to drive up to Pine Grove and park to eat my lunch sometimes when I worked in Conway. It couldn't be more peaceful.
Since I see you're heavily involved in the Parsons Family Association, perhaps you can tell me whether that society concerns itself with the Samuel Parsons family of East Hampton, Long Island, NY as well as the Northampton family. I have a descent in the East Hampton line: Samuel 1 and Hannah (Garlick?); Samuel 2 and Hannah (Talmage); Seth 3 and Sarah (Conkling); and Hannah 4, who married (1st) at East Hampton on 9 Feb 1716 Lewis Mulford. Lewis was lost at sea on a whaling excursion Feb. 24, 1719, after fathering two children, Jane and Lewis, born in 1716 and 1718 respectively. Hannah married (2nd) at East Hampton on 8 Dec. 1720 David Conkling, Jr., and she is said to have died 8 Aug 1775, though I don't have a primary death record or a burial place for her. My descent is from her son Lewis Mulford (1718-1790), who settled in what is now Roselle, NJ by 1740.
Can you refer me to a reliable source for the maiden name of Samuel 1's wife Hannah or the death date and place and burial place of Hannah Parsons Mulford Conkling? Many thanks for any help you can offer.
