|Bio and Links|
If you are new to findagrave, I suggest you read "frequently asked questions" carefully before making entries or requests.|
Since I get a huge volume of requests, please make it easier for me to add biographical information, relationship links, or corrections by going to the page you want linked or corrected and click on "edit." Your info will be emailed directly to me and I can click on the link. If I get the email I will make changes, but generally I don't have time to email you. Please double check dates and info; if multiple items are misspelled or have typos, I am inclined to believe the other material may also be erroneous.
Please state your relationship when making transfer requests. You are able to add photos to any entry.
When the website started there was no option for linking relatives. I am happy to add desired links: please double check your numbers so errors don't make double work for both of us.
I am related to some of the people I have added; entries are also posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.
Please take digital photos of old gravestones in your area; some that exist today may crumble in a season or two, especially in areas with winter frost. In a way, your photo will preserve it. Perhaps it will be the only record of a particular gravestone. Please do not apply any substance to a gravestone to make it more legible; it damages the stone.
You may use my findagrave photos for your personal use, with attribution; anything to be published - please contact me for permission. Click on photo for larger format.
If you are requesting a photo in a large cemetery please take the time to get section and plot number from the cemetery office, if there is one. Your request has a better chance of being fulfilled that way. Most volunteer photographers work on the weekends when cemetery offices are not open.
Verify everything; transcriptions and even information "written in stone" may be inaccurate. A good example is when the date April 31 appears on a gravestone.
Most of the CT cemeteries have already been added to findagrave. When in doubt check under "New" and "Old" to see if you've missed the listing. Please HESITATE before creating a new Connecticut cemetery on findagrave. I'll be happy to research it for you to avoid duplication; so many alternate names and town name changes make it likely it is already listed in another place. The majority of CT cemeteries that existed in 1934 were surveyed on the Hale Index: www.cslib.org/halecol.htm. Although it contains errors and omissions it is still very helpful.
Another source of information is the Ct Gravestone Network: www.ctgravestones.com.
Your local library or historical society can also assist you. Ask for the person most familiar with the cemeteries or the history of the town.
For additional help visit the findagrave forums.

Thank you for taking the time to send Simeon Platt's obituary. It is greatly appreciated. JIM
|Kate Duvall||Thank you...|
...for honoring Alan Turing this week. He doesn't get very many flowers.
|Elizabeth Davis||Elias & fam|
Thanks for the amazingly quick acceptance of the edits for Elias Shevalier and family. I found a great article in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register that takes away some doubts.

Your bio sketch for Gov. William Pitkin's memorial contains an error. Third line: "He was also a Connecticut Supreme Court Judge." There was no Supreme Court of Connecticut prior to U.S. statehood (there was no "Supreme Court" in any of the 13 colonies prior to their respective statehoods) and the Pitkin Family of American misstates history on that part. He was a Judge of the Superior Court of Hartford County for 12 years from 1741 to 1753. His gravestone also uses the term Superior, not Supreme, Court.

I found this article about the death of this lady. Please post for other researchers. Thank you. Mary
Article appears in the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 22 January 1889 reads...
New Haven, Connecticut, January 21 - Mrs. Julia B. Graves, of Middletown, while attending services yesterday morning at the Second Universalist Church, this city, uttered a shriek and fell dead in the arms of her nephew, George E. Gay. There was much excitement among the congregation, and a panic was narrowly averted. The pastor at once closed the service.
|JM||Thank you Jan!|
