Bio and Links
Bio Photo Richard Norton is 50% Irish; 25% German; 12.5% Swedish; and 12.5% Norwegian.

Richard was born in Paramus, New Jersey in 1958.

Education and career:
Richard went to Montclair University and later Rutgers University gaining a Masters Degree in Chemistry. He worked at most of the major pharmaceutical companies and spent seven years at Merck in Rahway, New Jersey.

He started work in genealogy in 1986 when he made a list of cousins and later wrote it up in Microsoft Word on his Macintosh computer. He found living relatives in Sweden and in Norway. He is still searching for living relatives in Alsace, Germany, and Ireland.

His Alsace origins are in Strasbourg. His Norway origins are in Farsund. His German origins are in Berlin. His Conboy Irish origins are in Hollygrove and Coalpits, Athleague, Killeroran, County Galway. His Finn and Creedon Irish origins are from Millstreet, County Cork. His Kershaws were from the Netherlands, but were in the US before 1850. His Burkes and Nortons have not been traced back to a county in Ireland.

13th Generation Fairbanks in America
Thomas Patrick Norton Memorial in BG Doyle
Hello there. I was photo-documenting this section of BG Doyle and came across this memorial. I photographed the marker for this veteran and would like to post it, but the maximum number of photos already exist. You are obviously a family member, so if you would like the marker photo added, your would need to remove one of your lovely photos. I will retain the photo until the end of this year. If you would like it added and have removed a photo so there's space, please let me know. Thanks and warm regards.

Please correct the following:
Catherine Higgins McDonald (not Harold) wife of Henry McDonald.

She is buried in Kingston Presbyterian Church cemetery, next to husband Henry.

Thanks! I think we have corresponded in past, and thank you for your help.

Michael Pierce
Stamford Cemetery-Edwin Pierce

In looking at your Findagrave entry for Mina Pierce in the Stamford Cemetery I see that you have her husband as Edward K. Pierce. His name was actually Edwin. Whoever made his entry mistakingly entered his name incorrectly. I picture of his headstone was added a few days ago that shows his name.

Greetings, Richard
Thank you for all your additions to this wonderful site. I believe the first letter of your Rev. Samuel Seabury II Biography is missing. "He first Bishop..." should probably read "The first Bishop..." Perhaps YOU can edit such things even though Find-A-Grave now maintains the memorial. Just a mention!
