Re Find A Grave 10867155
I noticed that Anna Hungerford's siblings are listed as half-siblings. I show them all being the children of Green & Elizabeth (Stewart) Hungerford. Do you have other information?

Thomas Post
I am writing to you about Thomas Post #88131680. You have as his first wife a woman named Sarah. According to Savage's Dictionary, Thomas' first wife was Mary Andrews and their daughter was Sarah.
"Savages Dictionary
THOMAS, Saybrook, s. prob. of the preced. m. Jan. 1656, Mary Andrews, had Sarah, b. Nov. 1657; and a. 1660 rem. to Norwich, where his w. d. 1661; and he m. 2 Sept. 1663, Rebecca, d. of Obadiah Bruen, had Thomas, Dec. 1664; Hannah, Feb. 1666; Mary, June 1669; Obadiah; and Joseph. He d. 5 Sept. 1701, and his wid.d. 15 Apr. 1721."

Thomas Post and Rebecca's Bruen's families are related to me, just not directly.

Thank you

I was wondering if you are related to the Leete family. I see your name a lot of findagrave and also noted the number of people you have worked on. It is definitely an addictive endeavor isn't it!

Jan, I did look up dropsy in the head on the internet. Water on the brain. Sounds sad, his children died early then he died. His wife Diadamia never remarried. With in 2 years she lost her whole family.
Thank you again for reading the headstone for me.

Benjamin Rowley
Hello Jan,
Thank you so much for putting Benjamin Rowley's headstone on Find-A-Grave.
In trying to read the headstone I can not make out all the words. Have you been able to read it?
I see Inscription:In Memory of Benjamin Rowley who died with a _____ in the ____ in his 24th year.
Is this what you see?
Something must of happened for him to pass away so young.
Thank you for your kind answer.

Possible Transfer
Hello Jan,
Several years ago I created a memorial for Albert E. Bitgood #20085483, before I knew that you had created one. Albert is my 2nd cousin, 3x removed. Instead of my using the "edit" tab for all the dates, places and family members, would you be willing to either delete yours or transfer it to me to merge the information? Let me know how you would like to handle this. Thank you,
Lorna (Bitgood) Dorr
