Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family for 25+ years and Find A Grave has allowed me to further my own research and also help others. Photographs that I have posted on Find A Grave are my own. If you wish to publish one of my copyrighted images, please contact me.

Please DO NOT download and re-post my photos as your own -- especially on Search for the Find A Grave record and link to the cemetery record that way. This allows anyone who comes across your tree to verify the source of the photo and the cemetery information. That also keeps you from violating Ancestry's policy regarding photos.

RE: Section 1 @ St. Mary's
Section One is a very old section of the cemetery.
I believe the I photographed and recorded every stone in that section. There are a lot of graves without stones in this section. This section is the southernmost section of the cemetery, on a hill, with the eastern edge of the cemetery going up the hill where the New York State Thruway meets the cemetery boundary. The western edge goes down to the sprain brook creek which divides the cemetery.

I am sorry you didn't find the grave you were looking for. There are no more grave stones to photograph here, just grass.

RE: Margaret Kenyon (#71776809)
We are thrilled, Jan! Thank you! Are you a relative? I'm curious how you came to notice the double memorials?!

Hi Jan,
Thank you for sending the complete death date/place/age for Joseph. I have updated his memorial. I also found his birth record so I added his complete birthdate too. Sincerely, Judi

Margaret Kenyon (#71776809)
Hi Jan,
Thanks for directing me to Margaret's earlier memorial. I have contacted ASB and if Margaret is not a relative of hers, I am going to request a transfer to my keeping. Margaret's father and my great-grandmother were (1/2) brother and sister. We had no idea where she was buried....

Thank you!

RE: Augustus Swift #160037484
This is my cousin. Cataumet and Pocasset did not exist When he was born in 1831. I think one incorporated in 1850 and the other in 1855. Often times on Death Certificates or Obits places of birth or even parents names (as in this case) are not 100% correct. That is why it is always more accurate to use Birth records. Even if someone lived in the same home their entire life, if that location became part of a different town in later years their birth location would still be the original town and not the later incorporated town.

Birth records for Sandwich, Massachusetts record his birth as: Israel A. Swift born 28 September 1831 to Nathan B. Swift & Permelia his wife. Found in:Book 4 Town of Sandwich, 1838 Record of Births & Deaths 1836 to 1842 [p. 50]

Also in Sandwich Record of Births and Deaths, 1836 to 1842 found on Ancestry is lists Israel with all his siblings as children of Nathan B. Swift and Permelia.

I have one entire generation of my grandmother and her siblings that all went though life by their middle names. If you do not chose to change it as his name on the memorial, yes that is your choice, but if you could then at least mention it in the bio that would be great.

Thank you

RE: Hannah Wheaton
You're welcome. Had thought William Wheaton d. 1802 might be her husband, but he was lawyer, sheriff of Providence County, and buried next to his wife. Also a couple decades older.

Good luck in all your searches,
