trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.|
Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County. I've been known to wander off to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine given the opportunity.
Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.
Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.
I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.
My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed... Click here to see the memorials I've added in the past few 7 days.

|Delina444||RE: Vernet Russell Drew, transfer|
this would be good, a drier day In April. I am firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wonder if the local library there would have the cemetery cards?
|Barbara Gibson||RE: Colville Pettit|
Thank you, Barbara
|Jeannie Leson||Rebecca Pease|
I saw your photo of the gravestone of Rebecca, wife of Christopher Pease, age 63, died 28 February 1844 and is buried at Beaver Meadow Cemetery, West Norwich, Windsor Co, VT. I'm helping a woman with DAR lineage, and she is descended from Christopher Pease and Rebecca Wright. That Rebecca died in 1823 and is buried at Quechee Cemetery. Christopher made a will in 1834 and speaks of his wife Rebecca. Rebecca receives a widow's part of $300. I am wondering if you know whether or not Christopher married again after his first wife's death and married another woman neamed Rebecca. Thank you for your work. It is a wonderful contribution to genealogy. Jeannie Leson
|Julie Bennett Coleman||RE: Child in Meeting House Hill, Norwich VT|
Thanks for the quick response - that totally makes sense!
|Marty in Goshen NY||Greetings from snowy Goshen|
Thanks, Nicole, for your suggestions re the CRISTs.
I will accept them today, but wanted to say hello first because it's been much too long since we've made contact. I think of you whenever I pass your former home in Goshen. I am not sure I have your current e-mail, so please drop me a line so I can update my address book. Mine has not changed for
over 20 years. Thanks. Marty
|Delina444||RE: Vernet Russell Drew, transfer|
Thank You for the transfer of Vernet Drew.
I am very grateful.
I am in regular contact with his daughter, so, will soon make a copy of these Find A Grave Memorials for her.
I do not know where they are in there. Dixie is vague about it all. I have placed a phone message to the town clerk, but have not heard back as yet. I would go take the photos myself. Perhaps we could meet there.
|Mike O'Shea||Hugh Drane|
Thank you so much for posting this photograph of Hugh's grave marker, he is my great grand uncle. I have the records on his at the Poor House, but wasn't aware they had a separate cemetery. May I ask you permission to use this photograph on his page of my Drain Family Ancestry Site. Thank you again.
|Dennis Carey Abrams||RE: Heritage Trail cemetery|
I think that's the one. Thanks a lot.
|Dennis Carey Abrams||Heritage Trail cemetery|
Given that you seem to be somewhat of an authority on Orange County cemeteries, I was wondering whether you or anyone was aware of a small, forgotten burial ground on the Heritage Trail. The area has no signage, no access roads and is overgrown so it's impossible for me to look it up by name. Even when narrowing it down to Orange County cemeteries, that leaves 317 entries to sift through. The cemetery is located somewhere between Goosepond Animal Hospital and Camp LaGuardia on the north side of the Heritage Trail. There aren't many landmarks to help narrow it down further and I haven't been there in quite a while.
|Eric Hansen||RE: Martha (Holbert) Durling|
That was super quick. Thanks. You answered both of my questions and I appreciate the addition of the sources. I will be contacting the Orange County Gen. Soc. I've been there a couple of times, but not in a few years.
Captain John Holbert is my 5th great grandfather and I've been researching the family. Old historians and genealogists have usually shown John & wife Mary as having 6 children. Now I find a number of online resources making it 8 children with the addition of Martha & James. Hopefully, the info from OCGS will also shed light on James.
