Mistaken photo
Hello Loretta,

I hope you'll contact the person who put the wrong photo on the memorial and insist that he/she remove it. It's very disconcerting.

And when you find the actual stone and remedy the memorial, please send another edit so that I can make the link.

Hannah Tear
The link you sent for Hannah Tear takes me to a memorial on which is a tombstone for Clare, wife of Thomas Gordon. This does not seem right to me. Please correct or send me additional information.
Thank you,

Janet Muff

Photo of Alphonso Teer
Hi, Loretta.

I am the great-great-grandson of Alphonso Teer through his son Frank Moses.

Is there a way that I could get a clearer copy of the portrait of him and his wife?

In addition, I am confused about whether his wife's name was Ellen Maria or Maria Ellen. My grandmother, Dorothy Teer, always referred to her as Maria Ellen.

Thanks for keeping their memory alive!

RE: Edson Waters Baker

Thanks for letting me know.

I've written to Dwayne Crandall asking him to unlink his memorial from the parents (Elias Baker and Florence Crandall) because I don't want two links for the same child and prefer to have the actual burial site linked.

I suggested he make a note on the memorial as to the location of Edson's actual burial OR to link his memorial to Edson's (with the special link created for that purpose by Find-a-grave) saying that Edson is memorialized on the family monument in Wallingford but is actually buried at Scottsville in Danby. The second way is a little more time-consuming to do, but it's actually so much better.

Ellen Teer
Hello Loretta,

Thanks for your message. I've changed Ellen's middle name from Marie to Maria.

The Teer family is incidental to me, but I've been tracing the Baker family for years. How wonderful that your family has an early bible. I hope it's in good hands with your aunt. My husband is an 8th generation Vermonter, and we know that specific information was contained in the bible of his Revolutionary War ancestor because it's mentioned in the son's Civil War Pension, but the bible is long gone. I've done everything I can to locate it, climbing down countless branches of the family tree looking for a descendant who might have it. But no luck.

When we were in VT this summer, I had intended to take more photographs of the memorials at the Scottsville Cemetery, but my husband's brother died and then two weeks later my sister died (here in CA) and I had to rush home. So, it was a very disjointed and difficult time, and needless to say I was "doing cemetery" in ways other than I had intended.

Thanks for getting the photo onto Ellen's memorial. I appreciate it very much.
