Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research since 2003. My profile picture is my grandfather Charles Rieve and his father Charles Rieve. I enjoy going through old cemeteries and newer ones. I have been mainly researching Bennington County, Vermont but do research other areas also. I have some kind of relation to many memorials that I have submitted.
If you want a memorial transferred to you please use FAG guidelines and the edit link on the far top right of the memorial, that is the only way I will do transfers, direct emails and messages will not be done. INCLUDE YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND YOUR MEMBER NUMBER. Just saying family is not sufficient - many of the memorials I have done are in my "family" also, I need a specific relationship or the transfer will not be done. If you have corrections please use the edit link on the far right of the memorial, with the new edit system, you can't tell me the source of your information. I will be verifying the information you send - I do not use ages on headstones to calculate birth dates, they can and have been incorrect on many occasions. If I can't find a valid record to verify your birthdate edits they will not be done. I verify all corrections before doing them. If you use my pictures on your family tree on Ancestry.oom or another service please state where you got the picture.
I am extensively researching the Hitchcock and Rudd families from Connecticut, Massachusetts & Vermont.

RE: Housel Claxton Wedding (Claxton Family)
Happy to provide some info.
You should check out the website. They have many newspapers scanned that are searchable for names, places, etc. Helen Claxton Housel comes up frequently, especially in Troy newspapers in the 1940s-1950s, noting her visits to town to see her father. The social media/facebook of its day. :)

Oops, I typed the name Story as Store, my mistake. It does read "Mr. Stephen Story".

Mary Emerson Story
Since I'm inside sick with a cold I decided to **look for more of your family in the book. I found the obituary for Mary Emerson Story in the 1792 Vermont Gazette section. So whoever put her date of death as 1777 was wrong because she died in 1792.
From the book in the 1792 section:
Died in Bennington Saturday last, Mrs. Mary Story, late consort of Mr. Stephen Store in her 88th year of age.

RE: Adoniram Hawley
The book I got the article from has lots of information tidbits on the Hawley family and some of the other family names I saw in your "My Family" virtual cemetery. Have you ever heard of this book? It's a what I would consider a treasure trove of info on Vermont (and some New England) people from that time.
Do you do research in Vermont or Rensselaer County, New York? Since I live in Missouri I can't visit cemeteries or do research back there. I've been trying to find out what happened to some of my ancestors who were from Guilford County in the late 1700's and moved to Hoosick, N.Y. around 1790. If you run across a Rachel (Cronkhite) Russell, or her father Jacob Cronkhite (killed in the Battle of Bennington) in any cemeteries can you let me know?
Thanks, Debi
p.s. If you want any info from the book, I have it until August 24th.

Adoniram Hawley
I was reading through a book, Vermont Newspaper Abstracts 1783-1816, and found an article from the Vermont Gazette about Adoniram Hawley (memorial #12792647). The article was from April 13, 1792 and read, "Yesterday, a young son of Mr. Hawley of Arlington, about 3 or 4 years old, was found dead hanging between boards of a fence." I assume the poor little fella must have slipped and fallen when trying to climb the fence. I thought you might want to add the article to his memorial, but if you think it's too sad, I will understand. I just wanted to share it with you.

RE: Caleb and Sarah Dayton
Thank you very much! I will include that information in my research. Maybe I can come there some day to research personally. The early part of my ancestors were all from this area, and New York and Connecticut. Thanks! Elizabeth

RE: Housel Claxton Wedding (Claxton Family)
I did a little more poking in the Yonkers Herald Statesman and found this for you. He doesn't have a memorial page on Find A Grave; thought you'd want the info to create one.
