Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for a number of years now and research families in my direct and extended lines. I have also researched my husbands Massachusetts family. I love using find a grave and add to it whenever I can. Many of my ancestors are buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY.
Some of the names that I research from my family are Marshall, Swenson, Rowe,Graff, Wotherspoon, Gurnee, Tway, Anderson, Steele, Hillary and many more. Many of these names originating in Lanark, Glasgow, Scotland. Other are from Sweden and Newfoundland.
The names that are associated with my husband's family are almost exclusively from Martha's Vineyard and New Bedford, Mass. They include Allen from the Island and associated families, Ashton, Howland stemming from New Bedford, Mass.

I am researching my family tree.
According to my records Stella was married to William Elias Tway
Son of William F. Tway & Mary L. Davis

Mary L. Davis' parents were:

George W. Davis (born April 29 1805)
Mary E. Henchman (born June 9 1815)
Do you have any information for the Davis or Henchman lineage?

According to my records they are my husbands maternal 3rd great grandparents.

Thank you for your time-

I am not related to him. I would be happy to transfer the memorial to you. I entered most of the memorials for the Marble Cemetery. I am a descendant of Abraham Fardon (Vault No. 79) and some of the Strongs in other vaults.

I did add the Capt. before his name.

RE: James Hall
Hi, sorry it's taken so long to respond but it has been crazy with a lot of requests lately - probably due to the 1940 federal census. Anyway, no I am not related.

RE: Herbert family question
Hello Joan,

Isaac and Eleanor (Denyse) Herbert are my 3rd great grandparents. I descend from their daughter Amanda (Herbert) Burrowes. Unfortunately, I do not know when Gilbert's wife Marion died or where she was buried. She appears, with her daughter Marion and grandson William Shultz in the 1920 census in Kingston, Ulster County, New York. Presumably she had been living with her daughter Dorothy who had died in 1919. I suspect she may be buried in Kingston, perhaps in Montrepose cemetery where Dorothy is buried.
