Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up on Cape Cod. I have lived in Fla., Calif, Conn., Texas, Utah, New Hampshire , and have lived in Vermont for fifteen years.I enjoy genealogy and photography. I find it interesting to visit old cemeteries and so why not help someone find a relative? It is rewarding to share our time to locate gravestones for friends we have not met yet!

Thank You so much for such a fast response, and the great photos. You are a real asset to Find A Grave and because of volunteers like you, it has become a huge success. If I find more photos needed in this area, I will send you a request first. THANK YOU, once again!

More photos!
Wow, Van - amazing... I didn't realize you'd taken so many photos of Abner and Laura Abbott! WONDERFUL, and the resolution is GREAT! I'm even more speechless... I corrected her Marker transcription, too, per your notation.

Thanks again!

Other Abbotts
Van - hello -

I do not know at this point if those Abbotts are relatives; most of mine except Abner were from the Stockbridge Abbotts; one of those married into this clan (from Maine/Massachusetts). But yes, send them on - I will email you so you have my address.

Especially in this HEAT, I am so appreciative of you taking the time to do this... and coming down from Bethel to do so!

Laura and Abner Abbott
I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful photo! Can you tell me exactly WHERE their stone is located? If one is facing the entrance with the North Road to your back, where do you go to find the stone?

Many warm thanks. I cannot express my appreciation enough!

Thanks for the pictures, but they are posted sideways. Please remove them, align them vertically and repost them. Thanks!

Thanks so much for taking the time to photograph Willie's gravesite. It's a long way to Vermont from where I live and so unlikely that I would have the chance to visit the cemetery personally. This is a very nice community service that you perform and one that I appreciate very much. Thanks again for your time and effort, Steve Barneby

Van, thank you so much for taking this pictures. My cousin had requested her husband Jacob--so it was especially nice for you to have the picture of the two gravestones together, also!

RE: Dimocks
Hi Van,
I live in Connecticut and had hoped to go to the Cape last month with a distant cousin and find all those Falmouth Old Burying Ground burials...but an illness in the family prevented this. Thank you so much for keeping me in mind if you travel there. I had one time...about moving south...but decided that I love the old houses, cemeteries and history could I think of leaving ???
Thanks again,
