|Bio and Links|
|I am descended from families of John Winthrop's Fleet of 1630 and have ancestors that have served in King Philips War, the Indian Wars, the American Revolution and the Civil War. Have been researching my family for over a decade and am just getting into the Irish side of the family. I have a special interest in the Civil War and have been researching African American veterans of that war.|

|Cresscherry||Elvira J. Powers|
Dear sir or madame -- You come up as the family researcher/contributor of a photo of the grave marker of Elvira J. Powers at Hope Cemetery in Worcester, Mass. Can you tell me how you are related to her? She wrote a memoir of her time as a civil war nurse in which she mentions my great-grandmother, C. Annette Buckel, MD, who was the director of nursing where Mrs. Powers served. I would like to contact Mrs. Powers' family to let them know how much I appreciate her memoir, to learn more about her life after the war, and to tell them of the amazing life led by my great-grandmother as one of the first women MD's in America. Thank you for any help you can give me.
PS - I am new to Find a Grave. I'm not entirely sure how to get back here to see your response. You may contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My fiancee is the great-great grandson of Abbigail Laverty and Patrick Markey, both buried in St. Johns. I'm the family researcher and genealogist, for this generation, and rather then make this a hobby, I treat it as an unpaid, part time job. You can say I really like what I do :).
Abbigail's father James Laverty is buried in an unmarked grave, with his wife Ellen Calligan. He fought in the Civil War. He and his wife died the same day, 22 Nov 1909, of unrelated causes. Sad, but sweet.
His brother Andrew S. Laverty enlisted. He was only in service a month and a half before he was mustered out. Died 25 Jul 1910.
Another brother, Joseph Fitton Laverty, was in service for 4 months. Died 12 Jan 1880.
Their brother Oliver Laverty fought in the war, but is buried in Maine.
The father of their sister Catherine's illegitimate daughter, Alfred Jones, fought in the war, but is buried in Unknown, probably Maine.
Their brother William Laverty fought in the war. Died 5 Nov 1891. Did 3 tours.
His son Frederick Laverty lied on his enlistment records, and entered the service at 16, in 1866. Not in the war, but he does have a Civil War marker in St. Johns. Died 21 Jul 1877.
Their brother John R. Laverty did not fight in the war.
His son John R. Laverty Jr. fought in the war. He did 2 tours. Died 15 Oct 1875.
His other son Robert M. Laverty fought in the war. Not sure when he died, but apparently you have some records on this.
His daughter Margaret Ann Laverty's husband Herbert Alonzo Libby was in the War. He died in 1920.
Their other brother Robert F. Laverty fought in the war. You have a fairly detailed listing on him already.
Their father Robert had a brother named John. Neither of them fought in the war. They were the immigrant ancestors to the family.
One of his daughters Mary Laverty married Sgt. Sefton "David" Orrell (Worrell). He fought in the war.
His other daughter Lucy Laverty married Thomas Jackson Proal, he fought in the war.
His only son Andrew Laverty enlisted in Jun 1861. He died in 7th Mar 1862 in Washington DC. He had been released from a POW status after the Battle of Ball's Bluff, and he didn't make it home.

So of the 7 Laverty's in St Johns, that fought in the war and are listed on findagrave.com, all are related. The only one I don't know is Joseph C. Laverty, but I have a serious feeling he is too.
Now, not all of these are buried in St. Johns.
Also of note, 6 of Robert's 8 son's fought and survived, some with injuries, some without. One of his 2 daughters had a relationship with a man who would go on to fight.
In contrast, Robert's brother John had 3 children (two more that I still can't name or prove). One married a vet, the other married before the war to a future soldier. His only son died after being taken POW.
I hope this helped. Also, I would love to find out if I could peruse your holdings to see if I can find some more information out on these men's military records. I'm in Worcester, and would love to exchange any more information you might need. And I also have a few stones photographed that you don't have.
Again, Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy the weekend.

I was poking around your postings, when I found two interesting individuals. Robert M. Laverty, and Herbert A. Libby, both buried in St. John's Cemetery, Worcester, MA. They both fought in the Civil War, but I thought I would let you know they were brothers-in-law. Herbert married Margaret Ann Laverty, Robert's younger sister. Herbert was born 16 Dec 1852 in Rutland, MA. He died in 1920 in Worcester, MA. Robert was born about 1846 in MA. My son is related to the Laverty lineage. I would love to talk, in case you are too!
|Paula Lyons-Myrick||William Lyons and Mary Ahaesy|
I'm connected to the Lyons & Quinn families that immigrated to Massachusetts from Kilsheelan /Carrick on Suir, Ireland area. I just became a findagrave.com member so that I can add info and photos re: Lyons family members buried in the Saugus & Lynn area of Mass and happened to come across your William & Mary (nee Ahaesy) Lyons entries.
Wondering where info came from which showed William was born in Kilsheelan. I believe this is true, but have found no US records showing this info. I've searched the Kilsheelan church records in person and recall many with surname of Ahasy & Hasey in that area. Any information you can share would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps I have information that would also interest you and would be happy to share.

You left me no way to contact you. I just added an email to my Find A Grave contributor page - you can use that to send me your contact info. I have some info for you and documents for John & fam. My Mom was gr-granddaughter to this John. If you follow John's memorial down to Ruth Connors Pattangall climb back up from her Find A Grave memorial thru my father's family, you may find we are probably well connected on the Yankee side, too. Would like to hear more from you!
|LMR||RE: Transfer of memorials|
I would be most happy to transfer any of your family members to you. I like to see the memorials in the hands of family. Go to their pages and use the edit feature to send me a message so I know which ones to transfer. I'm not related but probably added them from obit look-ups helping others or came across the grave and photographed it. I know I have corresponded with someone in the past researching the Ward and McGourty families.

I received an email this morning from ancestors.com with an announcement of a new book which is part of the Great Migration Study. Thought you might be interested. Title: The Winthrop Fleet. Hardcover, 6x9, 912pp, $64.95 plus shipping.
Looks like it has more than 200 genealogical sketches.
