RE: Grace Crooks
If you will send me your email I will send a family photo of the Crooks family. Everyone is identified. It is in our local museum.

RE: Ruth Chadwick
Dear Brian,

My name is Toni Hamill, Bill is my husband. Ruth Chadwick and Tarrant Porter Putnam are my 3rd great-grandparents.

I really appreciate your concern for precision and care with putting information in Find a Grave and other places because I have already encountered many problems with others who are less careful. I appreciate the clarification on how multiple marriages are dealt with in Find a Grave.

I went to the old Putnam family cemetery on Tucker Mountain in Newbury, Vermont, but it is on private land, and the headstones were in such poor shape that there is no real proof that Tarrant is there. I do appreciate your identifying him in any case.

Concerning Daniel Porter Putnam, I have some family letters saying he is at the Old Lynde Cemetery, which is now Memorial Cemetery, Essex, NY. When I visited there a couple years ago they had dug up some Sheldon headstones that had sunk below the ground level. One of them was Mary Anne Sheldon Putnamís grave. They apparently were not looking for Daniel, whose grave is supposed to be next to Mary Ann. They did find their childrenís graves nearby. Again, from family documentation, both wives are supposed to be there with him being located between them. I do have a copy of his death certificate, but it does not have the burial place listed. It says he died in Essex, NY on 15 Jul 1892 at the age of 84 years, 11 months, 22 days. Again, family letters indicate that Daniel Porter and Betsy were living in Brookfield, Essex, NY on her farm when he died.

If you would like a copy of Daniel Porter Putnamís Death Certificate, I would be happy to send it to you.

Glad I could get up that way to take a few pictures. My 3rd Great Aunt Mary Barnes was married to Stanton Fordice, Jr.

RE: Humphrey Sherman Jr

As I stated in my reply last month, I am descended from Humphrey Sherman Sr., through his son Humphrey Jr., who was the father of Julia M Sherman, my great-grandmother.

I am working on sources for the family tree and am having issues getting good information on the parents of Humphrey Sherman Sr. Information does exist in LDS genealogy records, but with few or no sources given. Do you have any information in this area?

I am descended through Humphrey Jr., who was the father of my great grandmother. Regarding duplicates, it seems the current procedure is to mail the request in to Find A Grave if the person who created the page does not respond.

Hi Brian!
Sorry it has taken me so long to get to your request, but your New York Nelson family is finally linked!
Would you like me to transfer the management of Betsy's memorial to you?
