Notes: If anyone spots an ancestor, relative, pal, etc., amongst my memorials, please give me a shout and I'll gladly turn them over to you. However, please note that I'm lazy about checking my email but I'll get to you eventually. The same goes for email regarding any corrections . . . I have filed these and will get to them eventually as well. Sorry for any delays, but I don't have a lot of time on my hands.|
I am a historian, ie., Family Historian and a bit of a tombstone tourist. I especially like to find gravestones from Colonial days through the late 1800's. Further, I feel strongly that gravestones are a testimony to the greatness of America's past. There are several reasons for my decision to transcribe cemeteries. First, I needed a hobby, because I quit smoking two years and three months ago. Second, I would love to obtain as many grave photos for my genealogy book as possible.
My family, on my mom's side, were colonists and came to American soil prior to 1637, according to Sidney Perley, author of "The History of Salem, MA". According to another source: "Upon a Ship called The Sparrow." My Branch of the "Patch" family first resided in Salem to Beverly to Wenham to Ipswich (all towns of Essex County), MA - then Newton to Concord to Groton (all towns of Middlesex County), MA - they came to Vermont in 1781 - being the 6th family to reside in Ludlow, Windsor County, VT.
Because of our beliefs in a united states we became Americans prior to 1776. However, our family did not seem to lean toward Puritan Stock, but were rather merchants of enterprise. We did not arrive in America as indentured servants as many did. We were, quite literally, "Fishermen" come to fish the abundant waters found here. In fact, the very first place of residence of Nicholas Patch Jr. was: Mackerell Cove on the Beverly side of Salem, MA.

By chance it appears this is the same Sarah Carpenter as Find A Grave#38414227 which has a nice bio. Just think it is duplicated.

Diana, like to help you out if I could by managing Hannah's memorial. Her parents are my direct ancestors. William and Elizabeth are my 10th great grandparents. Let me know. Thanks, John.

Thank you so very much for posting my cousins memorial and all others ...you do a smashing service
|Elizabeth Vandam||Birth location of Edward Colver|
Many thanks for all your efforts with adding grave information. Please share where you found the birth place for Edward Colver (abt 1610-1685) noted to be Somerset, England?
|Phyllis Meyer||RE: Thompson Patch|
Sorry I can not read the date
|Diana Ayers||Ann Ellis|
I am totally confused. There seems to be three tombstones for Ann in the Wightman Cemetery and a different death date in listing - 1678. One tombstone has her initials, no date, second has a 1686 and the third has ca. 1685 (newer monument).
I guess my question why the listing date of 1678?
Thanks for the help.
Hello, I an a desc. of William and Deborah Wood. Deborah (# 85663992) was born Roggers and their Marriage Intention papers record that she was of Hanover, MA. Just thought you'd like to add that info.

|LG||Lydia Goodridge grave|
I added photos of the gravestone of Lydia Goodridge to your page. And I had attempted to add a good deal more information but this proved to be entirely unsuccessful quite a while ago. I live a short distance from this gravestone, know it well and researched a great deal about it. An article was published on this very stone in the Danvers Herald a few weeks ago on July 28, 2016. Owing to the problems I had in adding my material to your page, I was compelled to create a findagrave page of my own. You might consider viewing my own by looking up Lydia Goodridge and I am user LG which I chose owing to the fact these are Lydia Goodridge's initials and I have spent more than 50 years figuring out who she is. I have located the owner of this gravestone and he has even saved the fragments of this highly vandalized stone.

|Annemarie Mathews Boyle||Hannah Reed|
Hannah Reed, the wife of Ebenezer Reed, is actually Hannah Thomson Reed and not Hannah Bennett Reed. She is the daughter of Jacob Thomson and Abigail Wadsworth.
I'm not sure where the 'Bennett' came from. There may have been a Hannah Bennett, but not married to the same Ebenezer Reed with these birth dates. This Hannah is actually from Middleborough, MA and died in Abington, MA.
She is my 7th great grandmother.

You reversed the numbers for Mary Larcher's age. It should read "84th year."
