Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE! DO NOT UPLOAD ANY OF MY PHOTOS WITHOUT EXPRESS PERMISSION. I'm pretty easy to get along with and will be happy to transfer anything within the guidelines. But to take photos from my memorials that are copyright protected (even though they may not be watermarked as such - check the copyright laws for verification) is clearly not appropriate and, technically illegal. I'm not saying I'll send a team of lawyers after you, I'm just asking for a small degree of common courtesy. Just ask! All I want is attribution for the work I've done. I only have about 1,800 in my name, but I've uploaded over 20,000 as a partner/volunteer of another Find A Grave contributor, John O'Connor, who was entirely welcome to my work....he asked! As a matter of fact, many of the photos that I took (and therefore hold the copyright) were uploaded under John's account.

Contact me anytime with corrections, links, transfers (according to policy) or adding information. I will respond as quickly as is reasonable.

A quick note: I'm often asked a question about hyperlinks. To add an internal link within a biography, you would need to type
< a href="">Name< /a>
(I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)

John Sackett Memorial #37604384
Hello Dave,

Thank you for the transfer of the John Sackett memorial. Judging from the number of years you have been a contributor, I would say you have provided a great service connecting descendants to their ancestors.

You are correct and what you have pointed out is not picky. I should have said, my direct descendant is John Hannum (6th great grandfather), brother of Abigail. Their father, William, is my 7th great grandfather and the first Hannum in our family to come to America that we know of.

I am familiar with DFAW. It is a wonderful organization! I joined earlier this year. I am currently working on completing an application for a Lineage Certificate for the Hannums.

Two years ago my husband and I visited Palisado as we were tracing William and had hoped to visit the museum but found we were there on a day they were not open. We plan to go again. I would like to visit during one of their events as they do sound like fun. I have not met Dick Roberts, but have spoken with his wife Pamela (very nice) and I think Dick has changed responsibilities at the historical society this year. Since you are a big part of the Connecticut Society of Genealogists, we may see you at a future Windsor event.

I'll continue to research John & Abigail Sackett and see what I can discover. Thank you for the help in this matter.

John Sackett Memorial #37604384
Hello Dave,
Nice to meet you too. I apologize for taking so long to respond to your note about John Sackett. I've had to be away from the family tree for awhile.

I believe I'll use the date of the 18th that you have listed on his Memorial page. I appreciate the time you spent after getting my inquiry. Looking at Abigail's Memorial (#20030491) I see only the year listed for John. If there was a large discrepancy in the death year dates I would probably be encouraged to try to find out more. If I find more sources in the future, I'll send you the information.

I am a direct descendant of Abigail (she was my 7th great aunt). Her parents William and Honor Capen are the earliest Hannum ancestors in our family to come to America and they were part of the group of Founders of Windsor, Ct.

I appreciate your offer to transfer John's page to me to maintain. Thank you. But since I am related to his wife, I think that makes me an "outlaw" of John. :)
Kindest regards,

There is no photo for her grave. This is her SSDI

Katharine Williams

BORN: 1 Feb 1933
Died: 4 Aug 1993
State (Year) SSN issued: New Jersey (Before 1951)

Her Vermont death certificate also says she died in 1993.

I suspect the date of 1997 is wrong.

RE: Frank R Young #42323185
Many thanks for your reply. I invite you to check my website shown on my contributor page, and please take any info you want from my research there to fill in a biography for Frank Young.
So far I havn't met your friends, the Raffs. What is their interest?
Thanks for your time and consideration of my request. Regards,
