I am a photo Volunteer here for the "Find A Grave" web site. |
I'm currently working on my own Family Genealogy and building a Family Tree of my ancestors who lived back in the New England states of northeastern America. My paternal surnames are Carter (Chartier), McCarthy, Pelkey (Pellitier), Kennerson, Lamoureux, Coulong, McGinley and Elliot; and my material surnames are Briggs, Burgess, Baker and Burditt, Haskins, Weir, Pitts and Washburn.
I first started this process back in the early 1980s before the Internet was available and instead of sitting behind my computer I made several trips back to the Vital Records offices in Montpelier and Burlington Vermont and to the family Genealogy Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Recently at the request of my niece, I have decided to pick back up my work and finish what was started. During this recent research process, I found not only free Vital Records online but also this "Find A Grave" web site that linked together Cemeteries and burial sites with headstone inscriptions and photos.
Finding the headstones and my ancestor's burial site information was important to me and finishing my research, but living in Northern California 2,500 miles away from any of these New England Cemeteries made it difficult for me to do myself so I've had to ask for "photo requests" for several headstone photos to be taken back in Vermont, New York, New Hampshire and Connecticut.
I was immediately humbled by the selfless acts of generosity of the photo Volunteers, so much so, that it inspired me to want to give back myself.
In return for the gracious gifts of the many other "Find A Grave" Volunteers who have filled (and are filling) my many photo requests, I too am happy to now help others who are also searching for their family, and I'm willing to make the trip out into the Cemeteries that are located here in the Solano County area of Northern California and take photos of headstones and document the inscriptions.
Once my Family Tree is completed, I'm planning on devoting much more time as a photo Volunteer here on this web site.

|Ken Pasley||RE: Leon Briggs|
Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you with requested info:
Leon B. Briggs
Fire Hill Vermont
Born February 14, 1908
Died December 13, 1984
This was written exactly as written on the marker plate.
I don't know how Warrenton plays into this. Warrenton is about 150 - 175 miles from his burial place. Anyway, I hope this helps. I will try to put up a little better picture of the plate.
|Chad Eugene Schneider||Rebecca Welles Manning|
I was wondering if you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I just have a question about Rebecca.
|John Dowdy||perry transfer|
Hello I am sorry I did not see the transfer request.
There are some dependencies regarding this crew and who was the pilot. it appears that they were interred in Turkey and not KIA on the Ploesti raid. Most were returned to duty. it appears that Perry did not die in Rumania. It will be an interesting to see if you can find out how he died and the facts regarding the ship and crew, take care.
|John Arsenault||RE: Thank you|
You're very welcome. Sorry it's not more readable. The Baby's monument has nothing else on it. The Hillside transcription book gives the year as 1904 from the cemetery records. I find a death record for a stillborn infant on June 18, 1904 - parents Charles and Annie McCarty. If you go ahead and add a memorial, I'll post pictures.
you're very welcome. I'm glad I was able to help.

I appreciate the picture of Mary Lapan that you shared. Do you have others you would be willing to share? Do you have any pictures of Barton Bump? They were my gg-grandparents.

|Michael Ratliff Lutz||RE: Edna Benway and Berton Briggs|
I wish I did know more about them. We know less about Wallace Willard Benway than the other two brothers. If I find anything I'll let you know. It is nice to meet another cousin.
|Ken Pasley||RE: Leon Briggs|
The inscription is really hard to read. Looks like it may be a small brass plate attached to the granite stone. We had to wet the plate with a paper towel to be able to read the name. The cemetery is about 10 miles from my location. The next time I am in that area I will take a small brush to clean the plate. Hopefully will be able to see more,and try to get a better picture.
|Fran Hanchett||James Pinney|
Thank you for finding his father, Charles.
When I only find one parent, it always makes me wonder where the other is. I have linked them.
