I am a retired newspaper editor in Ridgefield, Conn., and have written extensively about the town's history (see website, RidgefieldHistory.com).
I have been trying to add as many Ridgefield graves and/or photos as possible, supplementing the fine work of others, particularly Gary Boughton and Karen Kelly plus, at St Mary, Donna Barber. Almost all of the cemeteries in town have been completed.
I am also working the "new" St. Mary Cemetery in Danbury, have completed Bald Hill Cemetery in Wilton and Green Cemetery in Bedford, and have been working on other cemeteries in Groton, Vt., Berryville, Va., and Hilton Head Island, S.C., which I occasionally visit.)
REQUESTS: I am happy to update memorials with more information, especially biographical. Please contribute pictures!
If you are interested in taking over a memorial, tell me about your relationship and why you want to manage the memorial.
RIDGEFIELD OBITUARIES: I can help with obituary reprints, as explained on RidgefieldHistory.com under "Obituaries." You will also find there the complete Ridgefield Library index of Ridgefield Press obituaries published between 1875 and 1999, plus information on obituaries that appeared since 2000.
