Thank You so much for such a fast response, and the great photos. You are a real asset to Find A Grave and because of volunteers like you, it has become a huge success. If I find more photos needed in this area, I will send you a request first. THANK YOU, once again!

More photos!
Wow, Van - amazing... I didn't realize you'd taken so many photos of Abner and Laura Abbott! WONDERFUL, and the resolution is GREAT! I'm even more speechless... I corrected her Marker transcription, too, per your notation.

Thanks again!

Other Abbotts
Van - hello -

I do not know at this point if those Abbotts are relatives; most of mine except Abner were from the Stockbridge Abbotts; one of those married into this clan (from Maine/Massachusetts). But yes, send them on - I will email you so you have my address.

Especially in this HEAT, I am so appreciative of you taking the time to do this... and coming down from Bethel to do so!

Laura and Abner Abbott
I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful photo! Can you tell me exactly WHERE their stone is located? If one is facing the entrance with the North Road to your back, where do you go to find the stone?

Many warm thanks. I cannot express my appreciation enough!

Thanks for the pictures, but they are posted sideways. Please remove them, align them vertically and repost them. Thanks!

Willie Wheeler
Thanks so much for taking the time to photograph Willie's gravesite. It's a long way to Vermont from where I live and so unlikely that I would have the chance to visit the cemetery personally. This is a very nice community service that you perform and one that I appreciate very much. Thanks again for your time and effort, Steve Barneby

Van, thank you so much for taking this pictures. My cousin had requested her husband Jacob--so it was especially nice for you to have the picture of the two gravestones together, also!

RE: Dimocks
Hi Van,
I live in Connecticut and had hoped to go to the Cape last month with a distant cousin and find all those Falmouth Old Burying Ground burials...but an illness in the family prevented this. Thank you so much for keeping me in mind if you travel there. I had one time...about moving south...but decided that I love the old houses, cemeteries and history could I think of leaving ???
Thanks again,

Jacob Bevin
Thank you for locating and taking his gravestone photo...and I heard from my cousin that you found his wife too!! How wonderful !! Another piece of our genealogy puzzle found...we really appreciate it !!

Thank you so much,

RE: Hacketts
Thank you so much! I didn't realize that the Whitney and Hacketts were in the same resting place. As it turns out your pictures are helping me piece together my family history. Samuel Hackett is my 3rd great grandfather and Sarah Williams his wife. Spencer his brother and his wife was Sarah Noyes. Any Whitney or Hackett pictures would be terrific. Also, the Foss family is related too. Thank you for your help. I'm in Washington state and VT is about as far away as possible! Maybe one day I'll visit.

RE: Asenath Way
Someone did just add the picture I was talking about--another dedicated find-a-grave graver I have corresponded with before. So don't make a special trip. I do like your photography and you have done our family a great service. Thank you again!

Asenath Way
Thank you so much for adding the photo of her gravestone. I really appreciate the time you took. I also requested a photo an find a grave of her son--if you get the request do you mind placing the same photo on his (G. F. Folsom) memorial? It is a really nice stone and a good photo. Thank you again,

Van, SO sorry for the name error as you are definitely not a Laura! I had more than one thank-you note to write and got them mixed up. :o)

Thank you for getting the photo for Xenophon Lockwood! He is my great, great, grandmother's half broter, they shared the same father, but had different mother's. Andrew

Harriet Jones
Hello Van,

I added a memorial for Harriet Jones after you were kind enough to get photos of the whole Jones family at River Street for me. The memorial is #75641785 if you ever have the opportunity to upload Harriet's photo to it. I want to be sure you get the photo credit for it.

Whittiers in Old Christ Church Cemetery
What a pleasant surprise to find when I returned from vacation today. Thank you for taking the time to photograph the gravestones of these Whittiers for me. I am sure that not only myself, but others with Whittier connections, will be happy to stumble upon these photos. Great job!! So many thanks,

Added by Dale & Patti on Aug 14, 2011 9:43 AM

You found them! Thank you so much for taking the pictures, as well as the picture of Harriet Miller! It is very appreciated. I've never seen anything like that orange band around Sarah's stone. I wonder what it is.

Irene (Stocker) and Lewis Moyer
Thank you so much for taking the pic of my Aunt. The only reason my mother had for Irene using her marriage name from her first husband is because they had kids together.
