Bio and Links
Bio Photo FOR ALL THE FOLKS THAT SPUTTER ABOUT WHAT INFORMATION I AM LACKING ON MY MEMORIALS...PLEASE SEE PHOTO AT LEFT. IT SHOULD EXPLAIN MY DILEMMA!

I have gone around a lot of Caledonia County of Vermont photographing entire cemeteries. I am in the process of transcribing all of the photos and will post names that are not already on the site.
But, as I live in the world of "not much better than dial-up internet", it will be at the most basic level. (ie, not linking family members). The volume is just too high, and internet too slow. I will, however, do my best to keep up with any requests made.
THERE IS A LOT OF TALK AND COMPLAINTS ABOUT MEMBERS WHO APPEAR TO BE NUMBER COLLECTORS. BE ASSURED I AM NOT ONE OF THEM. MY GOAL IS NOT TO ATTAIN THE HIGHEST NUMBER IT IS TO HAVE ADDED ALL MY PHOTOS AND HAVE A NUMBER OF ZERO MAINTAINED! I THINK THEY SHOULD BE WITH FAMILY..AND THAT IS A BROAD SCOPE. ANYONE IN THE TREE IS CLOSER THAN I AM. I MERELY PHOTOGRAPHED A FEW CEMETERIES.

Find A Grave
I just read your bio after you provided me with requested photos. It may inspire me to start taking photos of some of the old cemeteries near me. I get great pleasure out of linking family members regardless of how far out on the limb they are. Recently linked a young solder I found through Find A Grave with his parents. He died and was buried in France during WWI and it was a nice feeling to be able to connect them through Find A Grave. Keep up the good work. Judy

Many thanks for the quick action in posting photos of Alvin and Gertrude Morey. I really appreciate you taking the time to get these photos for me and others who may be searching their roots.

RE: Jane Filgate/ Memorial# 173370306
Anne -

I am glad I could help. I have been working on cataloging the cemetery. It's not far from my house and my grandparents are buried there. I am frequently there watering flowers so I take photos when the weather is good and edit/post them in the winter. I just posted the Filgate photos. If you have any others you are looking for in that cemetery let me know. I may have them. If not, I can prioritize them when the snow melts.

Thank You so much! You must have had this one in reserve since there's no snow...hehe

Did you happen to notice what type of flag marker was there...and did it go with his grave...just curious.

Thanks again,

Wells is missing too.
Wells Quimby (1851-1924) is missing, too. His wife, Estelle Gage Quimby is there, though.

Hmmm...

RE: Elizabeth Quimby
Yes, that is Mama Harriet!!! St. Johnsbury is close by, I assume, as several members of the family passed away there! Do you think she may be there in an unmarked grave? It's unlikely that she would have been shipped elsewhere I would think.

ha... you sound like me. I had been chasing my dad's favorite aunt all over Minnesota, and I learned so much about her, but I could not find a grave. I was out taking a photo request and I was walking backwards to frame the long shot and I literally tripped backwards into a grave...

There she was. Aunt Sydney! I had no idea she was less than a mile from my home. THEN I found her parents, which are my great greats, and I never knew they were there either! What were my parents thinking? He was a Civil War soldier.

My lottery ticket didn't come in that week, though. But I did find four relatives that day ISO a photo for someone else. ;) Go for it. :)

RE: Elizabeth Quimby
We must be related. I'm in NW Iowa and I had that sloooowwww going until a couple of years ago when they must have received a grant because they put fiber optic lines in and now we are screamin' fast! My son from Saint Louis was impressed! I couldn't get cell reception at my house. Sprint and Verizon and ATT were playing tough guys with the towers. So Verizon ended up giving me a cell booster and it really really helped a lot! Wonder if that could work for you, too.

Thanks for the help on George. I don't have all the family records in a row yet and he doesn't match up for me yet.

I'm betting that Harriet is in California. The boys seemed to head out there in 1882 when Mom died, so she's probably just patiently waiting. I know she's not with Martin, so my guess is now with Madison Monroe.

May your service be speedy and your kindness be returned ten fold. Thank you, Anne! ;)

Elizabeth Quimby
Hi, Anne! You must have been sitting on top of this memorial when I sent out my request! lol... And your internet is screaming! :)

I am working on the Quimby family right now and I am in love with the photos you've posted, including the one I just requested.

You seem to know a bit about the family? Or maybe you, like I, just mowed all the rows in the cemetery, taking photos as you moved along.

I am trying to figure out who the second child is on this memorial. I'm not matchng up with a 5 year old who died in the 1860's... As did so many of the family.

Dad (Aaron) is buried at the National Cemeetery, and I don't see mom at this location (She's Harriet Furnald). If you had a photo of her grave, that would be ducky. If you don't, I'm wondering if she didn't go with (at least two of) her sons when they left for California.

I started this journey from one son I found by sheer chance, and decided for some unknown reason that I needed to fill his memorial. For the past four hours, I've been sitting here working on the Quimby family. I don't know how to walk away from a family who lost at least two members in the Civil War.

At the moment I have fast internet (always subject to change) but your photo made me laugh out loud. I know it's not funny, but it's so familiar that I just lost it. ;)

Anyway, you have better things to do with your bandwidth than reading my rambling, so I will let you go.

If you know who this other child is, or have any leads on the mom, Aaron's wife Harriet, I would love to hear back from you.

Thanks so much for Elizabeth! :) And thanks for walking the cemeteries. There's no better way to honor our predecessors as we find and honor their graves! I cannot wait to get out this spring!!
