Hey there! We've spoken before of our shared Eastman heritage but now I wanted to let you know that I've just put in (and have many more to go) a boat load of Colcord's in the Plains Cemetery in Kingston, NH. I know that a number of Eastman's and Colcord's had been married in the area and was not sure if they had meaning to you. Check it out if you like and if you're missing something let me know! I have next weekend off (no kids) and would like a few projects!

Take care,

re: #96615103

Hi Skip,

I entered my memorial onto FindAGrave from a death record I had (not a gravestone photo or cemetery visit). I've deleted my memorial and forwarded all of the information from mine over to Jack Parker who created his memorial from a gravestone photo. I sent him a SAC so he should add the information soon.

Take care,
John G.

RE: Colcord Edits & Transfers
You're welcome, Skip. I'm glad The memorials have a manager that knows something of their history.

RE: Captain Frank McKenna
Thanks for your message. “Mickey” Frank McKenna was my step uncle. If you have any photos of your father’s company, I would love to see them. After my grandmother passed away, my father took all of Mickey’s photos and gave them to his one of his sisters. She has since passed and her grandson does not know what happened to them. In particular, I would like a photo for his find a grave memorial. Please feel free to post to his site if you have one.

Thanks again,

John C. Van Duzee
Would like to talk about John Van Duzee's birth place. 1850 Census for Woodstock, VT says he was born in VT. 1860 Census for Exeter says so too. The New Hampshire 1895 Register of Civil War soldiers says he was born in Woodstock, VT (although his brother was born in Pittsfield?)

Thomas Colcord - Exeter
Hi Skip,
I was taking some pictures in Exeter Cemetery and one of them was of Lot 497 which included Thomas H. Colcord. I added the picture, if you would prefer I'll remove it. Let me know, since you already had one picture I don't want to add another to your memorial if you don't want it.
