Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began researching my family genealogy in 2010. My father had begun the research in the mid-90's. I found it very interesting; it sparked a desire to do some research of my own. I picked up where he left off in part because it was something I could share with my aging parents. During my research I found Find A Grave. I have found a lot of useful information here and think it is a great tool for genealogists. I especially like the fact that there are so many volunteers willing to help others in their search for information on their ancestors. Most of my direct ancestors came to the United States from England and Wales and settled in Maine, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. I have visited many cemeteries, both in the United States and Great Britain, searching for their burial sites. My husband always jokes that our vacations always include a stop at an old cemetery or two! I find this research fascinating and enjoy this new-found hobby a great deal. My father was an avid and talented photographer so I chose one of my favorites he had taken of me in 1958 as my profile photo.

RE: James Thompson
Hi Susan, I did Familysearch with a combination of maiden name and married name. Also used name of spouse and place of residence with approx dates.
Don't know how accurate they really are. Ray!

RE: James Thompson
Susan, I pieced together the following information from

Hannah Carter, b.1774, D. per stone 1856.

Spouse: James W Thompson. b. 1770

Dau: Sara P Lane b.1806, d. 19 Apr 1895 @ 89 yrs.

Residence: Dexter Maine.

Does this match anything that you have on them?? Ray

RE: James Thompson
Hello Susan, The Thompson stone in more than 150 yrs old and I was unable to correctly determine Hannah's information at time of memorial. I enlarged the photo as much as I could on my computer and can make out the name Hannah. The word died, and the last two digits of the death date as 56. I assume that to be 1856. I have no other information. Sorry! Not much help. Ray

RE: Patience
If you go to the photo page of the memorial, you will find the inscription in the caption at the bottom of the photo. I try to include it, whenever possible, with the photo.

Thanks for the kind words, I just didn't like the light burst on the edge of the break. Anyway, there is a photo of Elias-(Find A Grave Memorial# 23405087). The stones are side by side in the front row facing the street.

RE: Patience
You are quite welcome, I will try to get a better photo when the leaves are gone.

RE: Whitley
You're welcome. I wish the pictures were better or showed the detail more. I might try again if I get back out there, but I doubt much will help. The stone is pretty worn. But I will try! I looked for Ulysses...there is a little stone next to his parents that could be his but I couldn't read it at all. I did take a picture and could post it, but not sure...
