I am located in the Litchfield area. Let me know if I can help you with any research. My assistant Jack the dog is always looking for an excuse to go for a walk.

Jan- I am related to most of the Fenn's you have listed. Merab Hall Peck's first husband Augustus Lucius Fenn is from Plymouth,Connecticut.This is the Fenn family I am directly related too. It amazes me as to the amount of research you have done. Jim Lawson

RE: Almeda C Williams Kelsey
Hi Jan,

Roslyn thinks it is a cenotaph. I'm surprised Frank Passic never mentioned that. My great grandmother said her Aunt Almeda never married but it looks to me like she did after all & Roslyn is correct. It is odd tho that she would have left Albion & gone back to Sharon. I'm not sure what to memorial has several links & a photo I no longer possess. All would be lost if I delete my memorial. Any advice would be appreciated !

Almeda C Williams Kelsey
Hi Jan,

We both got a message about Almeda C Williams. I just wanted to let you know that they are two totally different women. My memorial (8102414) was originally set up by the Albion Historian (Albion, Michigan) and he passed it on to me because she was a sister of my gg grandfather & I provided him with the photo of Almeda. So, I know the cemetery information for her is correct. My Almeda never married. Your Almeda (23034353) apparently married a Kelsey & stayed in Sharon CT. My Williams were also all from Sharon but moved to MI around 1840.

Hello Vicky and Jan:

I just viewed two memorials for the same exact person at different cemeteries and even different states.

Vicky: Your memorial is posted at the incorrect cemetery. #8102414

Jan: Your memorial is in the correct cemetery. # 23034353 therefore according to the policies of the site I believe yours is the valid memorial even though it was added after Vicky's

Perhaps there is a way to merge the two memorials together since there is so much vital information on each memorial?

Jan, Thank you very much for the time and trouble you took to find my grandmother's grave. I appreciate your help! Is there any chance that you are related to the Franco family who lived on Putnam Street in New Haven?

East Farms Cemetery
Hello Jan!

I will be in and around New Haven, Ct. late July and would like to visit East Farms Cemetery. In particular, I would like to see Eldad Mix's gravesite, etc..
Will you please tell me how to find East Farms Cemetery? Or do they have a telephone# that I can call? In FindAGrave it does say it is at, 3156 E. Main Street - was just hoping to get a map of the cemetery that will show me where to find his grave, etc..

Thank you!

Had a problem with my internet....

Thanks for the Hale info. I would be thrilled to have any other photos. will reach me whenever you have the time.

Think I will try and get a plot map to see when that Thomas was buried.

All good wishes and thanks yet again!!!


Added by CMGregg on Jun 10, 2015 9:25 AM

Yes, I did read it. She was unmarried but did have a brother Thomas whose death I have yet to locate. Perhaps it is him. I know Bridget was buried in St. L and she willed money for grave maintenance.

Can you tell me the vol and page in the Hale Collection? I have been unable to turn it up. Are there any Cannavan or Clancy stones nearby?

Thanks again for all that you do. What a tremendous record you have.

Skinner gravestone picture
Thanks for adding the gravestone photo for Honora Skinner. It looks like there are other Skinner gravestones there that I was not previously not aware of. Would you of by chance also taken pictures of the other Skinner stones in that family plot. The headstone reads Skinner - Mahon - Arnet. Are there any Mahon or Arnet stones there in that same plot?

Hi Jan,
Sorry for the incorrect cemetery name. My grandfather is in St Lawrence Cemetery found in West Haven and New Haven, Ct.
My grandmother should also be in this plot. It is very large monument type marker and my also have some of their other children's names engraved on it.
Thank you for any help you can give me.

cemetery location
I'm a little confused. Christian Lane shows as being in Kensington on Find a Grave. However, I have also seen it listed as being in Berlin, Hartford County, CT on some Connecticut record sites. Is Kensington correct? Thank you for all you do.
