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; and my material surnames are Briggs, Burgess, Baker and Burditt.
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.

I went there Monday and could not locate a grave site for Harold Briggs at West Cemetery in Plainville Ct. So I checked with the office and they have no records for any Briggs burials. Is they any other surname that this family could be associated with? Maybe the plot is listed under that name?

I am not sure if you made the photo request or if someone else did. I should have stated that in the previous message.

Hi , I noticed that you have a request for a photo of Harold Briggs grave. The request is for West Cemetery, Bristol ,Ct. However ,the obituary posted says he was buried in West Cemetery , Plainville Ct. which are two different cemeteries. Let me know which cemetery and I would be happy to search for the grave site.

Lois Niles is not related to me but I ran accross her obit and pic and try to put them out there so others can find their relatives.
Catherine Margery Johnson Jackson is related:
2nd cousin 1 x removed.
Her boys Randy and Robert would be my 3rd cousins.
I never met them, would have liked to. My grandmother was Nancy Ann Johnson Stocker lived most of her life in Ludlow area so she somehow got cut off of the rest of the family. My mother does not know all the relatives. I have been trying to track back on the Stocker side and the Johnson side and hit brick walls. I have called many of the older members of the family and they just could not remember the answers I was looking for. I am looking for info on our great great grandfather Charles F Johnson ie where his father and mother are.
You see me all over because my mothers side is huge. Most had 16 children and more so there is alot of offspring. My fathers side was from MS so I have it going out that way also.
I did not know of Roberts passing must have missed that obit. If you would like to transfer yours that would be great.
You asked me to link Jonathan Briggs to his parents, Silas #76023645 & Betsy Robinson Briggs #100925921. However, Betsy was his wife and not his mother. I checked the number for Silas that you gave me, and the link on that memorial shows Silas Briggs' wife as Esther Briggs who died in 1912. See #76023646 for verification. If you can let me know whether this is correct, I would be happy to link him. The Robinsons are my ancestral lines and my information comes from the Robinson Scroll, volume 3, which does not go into Jonathan Brigg's family background.
