Bio and Links
I became interested in tracing my family roots around Thanksgiving, 2004, when I found a handwritten family history (authored by my maternal grandmother) in my parents attic. I've been hooked ever since. My wife (Heidi) has since also become an addict. We are both related to early settlers of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.

Re: Emmesett Cleaveland 158189331
You state "drowned, age 41.... It was her father who was age 41. You could change that to "Arba Cleaveland, age 41......

The Mandevilles
Thank you so much for that article. I called the cemetery there at the college several years ago and asked if the Mandevilles were buried there and was told no !!! The person on the phone looked it up or at least said they did. I have searched and searched and made phone calls to various cemeteries in Clinton and nearby looking for them, but finally gave up.

Benjamin Franklin Stanton
Att: Jeff Zinsli I can not get through via your e-mail with this computer. I live in Mystic, CT. and would like to write an article about BF Stanton for the Mystic River Historical Society's newsletter. I live on Jerry Browne Rd and there is a little street going off named Benjamin Stanton PKW. I am on the Stonington side of Mystic and wonder why this is so named. Hope you can help. Thank you

Alvin Tescher is buried twice St. Michaels and Sentinel Butte Cemetery. where are the Teschers actually buried in Sentinel Butte?

42650975 Memorial...Silas Johnson.
Hello, Jeff.
I tried to send you an email, but, didn't think my email was going to get to you at your msn email address, so, I will send you the link for Silas's Birth Certificate from N.H. Vital Records, here. This Birth Certificate indicates that Moses Johnson, Born Oct. 1738, Holliston, MA, is Silas's father, not Moses's brother, Simeon. Both Moses & Simeon had wives named Elizabeth. Silas's mother, Elizabeth (also on his Birth Certificate), is Elizabeth "Unknown". There is no proof of her maiden name on record.
Here is the link,
Thank you for Silas's Memorial.
I am a relation to Silas and family, through Silas's son, Willard.
I hope this information will help clarify who Silas's true father is - Moses Johnson, born Oct. 1738, Holliston, MA. Moses, also, died in Vermont, as did Silas.
Best Regards,

St Micheals Cemetery records
Are Sentinel Butte Cemetery and St Michael's cemetery next to each other? All the Teshers you entered are duplicated in Sentinel Butte Cemetery.I would like to confirm which is right. I will contact the church to verify. unless you have the correct information already.

Memorial #83531885
The Find A Grave section under FAQ, Membership/Signing In, “What is a photo request?” mentions: “Many cemetery offices will only provide that information (exact grave location to photograph a possible marker) to relatives of the deceased and will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave location.”

There’s a reason more than 50 requests have not been realized for Woodlawn Cemetery in Green Bay, WI. I suggest you contact the office manager, Mary Lemirande, at (920) 432-6077 or email her at to learn the exact location of Chas. Wheelock #83531885, especially which Park (section) and names of individuals buried on each side (N,S,E,W) of your individual. Then, go back to your “Request A Photo” and add those “notes” so a photo volunteer can at least take a photo of the grassy plot if no marker is present. The cemetery does not usually have a record if or when a marker was placed at a grave site. Without the specifics, the only other suggestion I have is to remove your request. Thank you!
