Bio and Links
Bio Photo Past President of the Mount Vernon Genealogical Society ( & author of New Copies of Old Records from Hebron CT, 1708-1875 (Heritage Books, 2011) & various articles on New England genealogy.I have transcribed Litchfield County, CT cemeteries from the Hale Collection because I'm looking for 18th Century collateral ancestors in our Birge, Fox, Hatch, Holcomb, Hindman, Hunt, Noble, Peck, Thompson, Wilcox, & Willson lines. If you are related to other families in these cemeteries, let me know & I will transfer ownership of memorials with your surnames to you so you can add information and links. I have many other Connecticut ancestors in central Connecticut cemeteries, where I will also transfer memorials unrelated to our family.Most of my Connecticut memorials are copied from the Hale Collection, which transcribed all Connecticut tombstones during the Depression. The transcription is not error-free, but Hale was able to read things then which are no longer legible today.The New Hampshire entries are all from Colonial Gravestone Inscriptions in the State of NH, by Mrs. Charles Goss (1942). None are close relations of mine, so if you want to make additions or corrections, please just request a transfer.When contacting me about a specific memorial, PLEASE do so from the Edit:Corrections & Queries tab on the memorial itself. This makes it SO much easier for me to respond quickly & accurately.

John Wildes -birth correction; add a child
Hello, Linda,

I am the 7th great granddaughter of William Averill, father of Sarah Averill Wildes, John Wildes' 2nd wife. Wm & Sarah and Wm's wife and 6 of Sarah's siblings came to the colony in September 1634 via either Southampton or London England.

First, you need to correct John's birth to 1620 and place which was Topsfield Massachusetts Bay New England Colony.

Secondly, John and Sarah had 2 sons, John (1664, & Ephraim 1665) both born within 2 years of their parents' marriage in 1663. John and his first son went to Boston Gaol in 1692 ca May -June)many times to provide medicines, clothing, food and other necessities while Sarah awaited trial for practicing witchcraft in Salem in July of that same year. Sarah and 5 other were executed by hanging on 19 July. Sarah was finally exonerated, along with others, 300 years later in Salem, 1992.

Thank you vey much for your assistance.

Ann Tinker Thornton
I see what I believe an error in regards to Anne Thinker First I think her name was spelled Anne but I could be wrong there.
But you have her as having married a Tomas Tinker.
She was born Anne Tinker and married Thornton.
Thank You!

Burial Unknown
It does not seem right that you continue to add records with "burial unknown" the site is FIND a grave not assume a grave. Your records added often source the Great Migration Begins. Are you confusing ancestry with actually finding the resting place of ones ancestors? No disrespect intended by I often find my ancestors listed in this manner which is very frustrating since I am getting a regurgitation of what was published in a book that is available to any of us online. No useful new information is associated with any of these unknown burials.
