Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Burlington Vermont, but spent a great amount of time traveling from place to place, first because of my father's military service and then because of my military service. I now live in Texas. I am primary researching Brothers, Couture, & Martin families, originating from Burlington, Winooski, and Williamstown Vermont. Secondary research includes those married into the 3 main families, and are too numerous to list.

I discovered find-a grave when researching my family history. Any photo I request is to complete the history of the journey of a ancestor, most of which are in Vermont, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. Since there is no way that I could possibly visit each grave, find-a-grave is the next best thing.

I want to thank those people who go out of their way for strangers, and obtain pictures of the grave stone. Some people have done more than just take pictures, some have even research the deceased, and passed information on to me. I sincerely appreciate everyone's time and effort.

If I manage a memorial of someone who has a closer relationship to you than me, and you want management of the memorial, ask, and I will be happy to make a transfer.

If you want to make a recommendation, or have a request concerning a memorial, please use the edit function of the memorial page, otherwise leave a message below.

Harriet Aurora Sherman
I did not make the original edit - my info shows Henry / Harry's only wife was my 3rd great aunt, Martha Anna Lent (23 Apr 1815 - 06 Oct 1904). However, I was able to unlink Harriet S. Sherman on FindA-- I show Harriet Aurora Sherman (22 Aug 1845 - 11 Nov 1924) was the wife of Lewis Craft Dorsett (31 May 1836 - 18 Jan 1893). I believe the middle name of "Shenuan" is incorrect, but obtained from her Illinois death certificate which incorrectly transcribed her father's name as "Nathaniel Shenuan," when it should have shown "Nathaniel Sherman, Jr." (23 Feb 1818 - 25 Sep 1852). Please advise if you disagree. Sincerely - Jim Warters

PS - I don't have a burial site for Martha Anna Lent Dorsett; however she died in Waukegan and, presumably, is buried in Oakwood Cemetery with her husband.

RE: William Martin
Always glad to help you as you never fail to thank people for their effort. Fannie and William were buried in the newer part of the cemetery (Edgar was in the old part) along with what I assume are her parents(Fords).
We got a break in the weather here so I decided to get out for a couple of hours. Hadn't much opportunity this fall. Hope to get back to it more in the spring.

Thanks for your suggestion. But. The memorial that I put up is for him at West Berlin Cemetery, with memorial stone. The other memorial is at Berlin Falls Cemetery, a place I have not yet visited. So it is quite possible that the other memorial is the incorrect one. Not that i never make mistakes! So, I think I will leave things as they are at present. Does that make sense to you? All best wishes.

Mary Stansbury Dufur in Lone Fir
As I wrote to you in October regarding the photo request for Andrew Dufur d. 1914: there is no burial record for Mary Stansbury Dufur in Lone Fir. This morning I probed Lots 32 & 33 to a depth of 12", every four to five inchs, and did not find a headstone or cemetery locator for Mary Stansbury Dufur. Are you sure Mary and/or her husband are buried in Lone Fir? This is not the first - or even the third - photo request I've had for this couple and I continue to be unable to find a trace of either.

rickb. Yes. Following the death of Harriet (Adams) Calkins, her daughter from her first marriage to Warren Martin, Lottie Martin, married her mother's widowed husband and my great-grandfather, Chester H. Calkins.

Rufus M. Rogers #61787771
Rickb--Sorry sir but things don't add up in that Civil War started with the firing upon Ft. Sumter, April 12, 1861. Mr. Rogers would not be drafted or enlisted on July 1, 1853, 7 years prior to the war's start. Could you please provide where info can be located as I cannot request flag without accurate information to present to Legion. Thank you--MMann
