Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

RE: Sheddsville Cemetery
I found an old transcript of the cemetery in my father's papers. I couldn't bear to throw it away, and it wasn't doing anyone any good sitting on my shelf. It isn't my family. I'd be happy to mail it to you and turn over all the memorials.

I think the transcript was made about 1921 because I don't remember seeing any dates after that time.

The transcript is faded in places because of the typewriter ribbon. I can scan it in and send it to you, but I think you'd do better with the hard copy.

Let me know what you'd like to do.

Thanks, Deborah Carl

Thank you so very much for the photos for the Baker family stones for Joseph and Mary and their daughter Sarah. The stone picture for Mary really answered some questions for me.

Phebe Giles death date
Hi lady Goshen
A close look at Phebe Giles 39563844 headstone in Little Britain cemetary shows that she died in 1868 - not 1858
The stone also says that she was 77 when she died, which means that she was born 1791, not 1781.
It appears that both her birth and death years need to be slipped by 10 years
Thanks for all the work you do.
My mother in law's parents are buried in Little Brittain Cemetary.
I am researching the Sloan Giles side of the family.

Clement Corbin Thornton
Hi Lady Goshen

I updated the bio for Clement Corbin Thornton as you requested. I was wondering if you know who Elsie Stevens parents are. Elsie was Clement's first wife who is my third great grandmother? I am planning on checking some gravestone markers in a Concord, Vermont cemetery around the fourth of July weekend. How about you?

Virginia A Strong
Do you know if Virginia and Asa Strong are in the same plot as I am trying to verify Virginia Strong's husband's name? They are in Slate Cemetery in Goshen, NY.

Thank you,
Caroline White

Hi. I just found his obit in the Jersey Journal, Sept 1, 1970. I thought you would be interested. (He was my Dr.)
