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.

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.

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.

Richard, I never saw your message here that you wrote so long ago. I am sorry. If I have anything you need let me know.
Thanks. Sandra

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!

Nancy Hopkins Trier photos
I am a volunteer worker for Civil Air Patrol (CAP) a nonprofit organization. I put together events, activities and educational materials for CAP. These items are given freely to all 56,000 CAP members as well as about 3500 teachers (Aerospace Education Members) or AEMs who use our materials to promote aerospace and STEM subjects to about 200,000 public/private/home schooled K-12 students nationwide. I have written two booklets/workbooks that address twenty-seven “Women in Aviation” from 1900 to today. These two volumes introduce these incredible women, a brief story of their lives and includes photos as well as material. I have identified several photos on Google Search of Nancy Hopkins Trier that I would like permission to use, and properly cite your website and the photos back to you. Please respond to me with your approval, concerns and thoughts. This is not about money, it is about educating youth today about some incredible ladies. Thank you in advance. The images that I have in mind is from your website where she is standing in front of an airplane and one with her sitting in the cockpit. Thank you in advance.

In the Spirit of CAP and Flight,
