|Anonymous||RE: Ezekiel Story|
Thank you Linda for being so diligent in finding the answers. I truly appreciate it.
The birth date for Ezekiel must be incorrect, if the headstone reads that he died Aug 20 1752 at the age of 52 years, his birth date would have to be 1699 assuming the month and day are correct. or 1700 if the month or date are unknown. Kindly, readjust the memorial to more accurately reflect Ezekiel's birth year.
Birth: Sep. 16, 1718
New London County
Death: Aug. 20, 1752
New London County

|Juliet||Walter A Shippee|
Regarding Walter A Shippee, Robbins cemetery, Voluntown you need to add his death date which is on the gravestone NOT according to Hale records.
Death date clearly marked on the gravestone Feb 5 1936.

|Melodye Whatley||Ruth Scott Paster (Cem#2)|
If you would, please, change Ruth's name to just Ruth Scott. The stone has been recarved with the name Paster removed. (Long story there, I gather). Anyway, I will replace the photo with an updated one as soon as I can.
|Janet Brown||Charles LeFrancois|
The above is my 9th GGrandfather. Grew up in Jewett City--and have Doyon, Hebert, Greene and Clarke roots. Am also a retired school teacher.
|Flatfoot Billy||William H Swauger 18323704|
Please ignore the edit I sent. P. Edward Swauger is the son of William H and not his father. Thank you.
Thanks so much for the transfer of Maria Standish. I appreciate your willingness to share with family.
Thank you so much, Linda, for transferring my 2nd Great Grandfather's memorial to me. I appreciate your kindness......Charlotte
