Bio and Links
Bio Photo Past President of the Mount Vernon Genealogical Society (www.mvgenealogy.org) & 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.

Edward Parker
There are some inaccuracies in this bio. They are commonly held inaccuracies and the writer of the bio should not feel bad. These inaccuracies are just about everywhere.

Edward was my immigrant ancestor. I have made extensive study of him and his life. I'll point out the inaccuracies and the tell you some extra things that can be added to the bio.

Edward Parker was not born in 1622, but earlier. His birthdate is unknown, but his age is closer to Elizabeth's age. She was born in 1606 in Chesham, England the daughter of Henry Wood and Isabel Goodspeed.

He and Elizabeth were buried in the Old Burial Ground in New Haven. The burial ground became lost to antiquity over the years, but was recently discovered under what is now the New Haven Green. Many headstones have been recovered but unfortunately the headstones of Edward, Elizabeth, their children, and Elizabeth's first husband John Potter have not yet been recovered. He and Elizabeth were married in July of 1646.

The name of Edward's father is unknown. I checked Jacobus and found no indication of Edward's birthdate, place of birth, or father's name. A history early New Haven says Edward was a butcher. This occupation is supported by records of the New Haven courts. I have a reprint of these records which mentions Edward several times.

He grew to be a large landowner and well respected man in New Haven. He was not well respected early in his residence there getting into some conflict with one of the pillars of society, Richard Malbone. Edward gave up his side of the conflict and was allowed to join the church.

Pisarko - Pokutny tragedy
dear Linda!

My name's Roman fm Odessa,Ukraine.Just found the
info on Peter Pisarko's grave at St.Nicholas Cemetery. I know this tragedy that happened in Taftville,CT in 1925 since the younger sister of Samuel Pokutny (the man who shot Pisarko and committed suicide afterwards) was my great grand-mother.
But now I'm looking for the grave of Pokutny's wife,
Vera Pokutny. I know that after Samuel's suicide she moved to Manchester, Hartford CT and lived there with her little daughter, Nina. I also know that Vera passed away in 1978.

Would appreciate yr valuable advise on it.

Best regards,
Roman

Memorial# 37142281 Phebe Hewes Goad
Linda,
According to the information on Phebe's memorial, she and Richard had 10 children, none of whom were named Abraham.
The Abraham Goad attached to is actually their grandson. Their son John is his father.

I would like to thank you, Linda Mac, for stealing credit for all the research I did on my 8th great grandmother. Your original record had no dates and no cemetery listing and no information. You copied everything from my memorial and is getting all the credit. You did not respond to any correspondences at all. I hope You are proud of yourself. All my work was merged with yours and you are no relation at all.

Mary WEST Sumner
Reading the Record of the Descendants of William Sumner, of Dorchester, Mass., 1636 I find that William Sumner was married to Mary WEST. Not Swift. This is why I suggest the edit. Not sure where your information came from but I feel the book I got my information from is the most accurate.

Herodias Long & John Hicks
Hi Linda, I am contacting you about Memorial # 34224625 for Herodias Long Hicks Gardiner Porter and her first husband. You state that this is not the John Hicks that was born to the Pilgrims Robert and Margaret Hicks. Half of that is right in that Margaret is not the mother of John, but Robert is with his first wife Elizabeth Morgan. Robert and Elizabeth had: Elizabeth, Thomas, John, Sarah and Richard. Elizabeth, Thomas, and Sarah died, but John and Richard followed their father to America later. It is described in "The Great Migration" for Robert Hicks and "North American Families" for Robert Hicks. Robert also married Margaret Winslow and had: Samuel, Lydia, Phoebe, Mary (who died), and Ephraim. Hope that helps and that you had a wonderful Holiday. Connie Fullmer
