Jane Stickle
My name is Themis and I live in Brazil, I and my friends Erika and Luciana went to Bennington only to see Jane Stickle's quilt at Bennington Museum and we saw also her grave and the house where she lived. I loved the quilt . Bennington VT will be in my heart forever, great emotions there. Thank you.

Stih- Koscak memorial ely mn
There is also a line on the memorial that says Mary and Joseph were buried without a Church service- I assume it was because they died of the influenza and were buried as fast a possible

Stih-Koscak memorial Ely, MN
You so totally screwed up this memorial- it is obvious you made up a lot of the information because you don't know how to read or understand the Slovenian language- people like you should not be allowed to post such misinformation.

The pictures on the headstone are of a brother and sister- Mary and Joseph Stih. Mary1892-1918. Her brother Joseph 1894-1918. She was married to Matt Koscak. so her name is Mary Stih Koscak ( pronounced Kas-chock). He is buried behind the head stone along with his second wife Jennie. his name was americanized to Koschak. Joseph and Mary died a day apart during the flu pandemic of that time. The stone also reads that she is mourned by her husband Matt and they had 2 children. The last line reads: May this foreign soil be light on you. Mary is in her bridal dress and Joseph is pictured in the clothed he wore for her wedding- I think he was best man- but that is what I was told- It has been my experience that mistakes like this are not changed either by the arrogance of the poster or Find A Grave doesn't believe it can do wrong- makes me sick that things like this can be allowed to screw up a family for eternity

If you have time maybe you can contact Find A Grave. Even though I supposedly manage the memorial it will not let me remove either. Thanks for trying.

Your grave photo needs correction

Elizabeth Cary Wiltse

The photo you uploaded to that memorial is actually that of Mrs. Elizabeth Buck, 2nd wife of Ebenezer Bates, Senior; she died in Oct. 1812 at the age of 80. So the photo should be removed from the above referenced record.

Elizabeth Cary Wiltse died in Shaftsbury in 1814; her husband, Thomas Wiltse, survived her and died in 1826 (per probate recs.).

RE: Spencer
Well, I know a little about Peleg and Audria Spencer. Her maiden name was also Spencer, and they were 2nd cousins, once removed. They were actually relate on maternal lines as well. They hailed from Rhode Island, bastion of religious freedom. Most of their children wound up in and around Sutton, Quebec, presumably because they were Tories. Please create an account at, and look them up in "Family Tree", if you want more detail.

RE: Photo of marker Dan(iel) Lindblom
I should have made this question in my previous message. Is it OK using the photo in my genealogical documentation (Ancestry) - of course with notation of your approval ?

Thank you for the excellent picture of the Purdy headstones. I had always asssumed the original picture may be the only surving record of the stones. It was wonderful to see they are still in reasonably good condition.

May I have permission to use the picture in my private Ancestory family tree? I will, of course, give you full credit.

What a joy it is to have such a new, legible photograph of grave marker for Revolutionary War Patriot Benjamin Purdy and his wife! I deeply appreciate your time and care to locate the marker and photograph it so carefully. Thank you.

RE: Byron & Hazel Hazelton Headstone
Hi Mel,

The reason that I was asking if the sections are marked is that I may possibly be taking a trip East this summer and if I do I wanted to find some Whitton Family graves in section C-1 and D-1. I live in Colo. and have never been to Manchester before. Pulling it up on Google it looks like a fairly large Cemetery and I didn't want to wander around for hours looking for the graves. I was born in Greenfield, MA and lived for a little while in Brattleboro, VT.

How interesting that you worked with Hazel. She would have been a very distant cousin of mine through her husband.
