Rev. George Benjamin Atwell, his son, George B. Atwell
Dear Jan Franco,
First, let me thank you for all the work you have done on this site. There are so many things I am finding our about my family tree through findagrave.

I was just looking at the Rev. George Benjamin Atwell
Record added: Apr 20, 2008
Find A Grave Memorial# 26158117
I am confused between the Rev. George Benjamin Atwell and his son, George B. Atwell. The photo at the top right says
George B. Atwell~Aged 85 years.
Yet the memorial says that he was 48 years and five months old. I am confused about this memorial and his son's George B. Atwell,

Eli Denslow, Memorial 20444578
I have been researching the "New Haven" Denslow family for a very long time. My 5th g-grandmother was Ruth Denslow, g-daughter of William Denslow, daughter of Charles Denslow. Eli would have been Ruth's cousin. I'm writing my second genealogy book, and would like to ask your permission to use any of your Denslow family photos in my book. I always attirbute photos to those who have taken them. It usually looks like, "Photograph taken (or provided) by John Doe #xxxxxxxx of Thank you for your consideration. Sharleen Thomas Espedal

Memorials #24865340 & #24316223
Hello and thank you so much for your work on this site! I am writing to request that you remove the link to the parents from the memorials referenced above. The daughers, Sybil and Mabel, were born in 1756 and 1754 - when their mom would have been over 60 years of age and their dad would have been dead for a number of years. Thanks for making this correction! Deirdre

Levena Tillona
I am curious about Levena, I recently found out that she was married to my father. They had no children. What do you know about her, and or are you related. Why did you post a picture of the grave site.

Thomas Mumford Rogers
In researching Thomas Mumford Rogers for a descendant of his, I found the following information that you may want to add to his memorial:

Thomas Mumford Rogers (F.A.G.Memorial #20883282)
was born in 1777 and died in 1841.

He was married to Harriet Maria Walker.(F.A.G.Memorial #11076732)

Riverside Cemetery, Guilford, CT
Please disregard the part of the previous message I just sent about contacting me on Daniel Hoadley's memorial. I have deleted it. I just found your memorial for him in the Congregational Church Cemetery. Use the one for Mary Robinson - # 160290939.

Thank you for all the work you have done in New Haven County. We are probably related as we have some of the same ancestors.

Riverside Cemetery, Guilford, CT
Hi Jan,
Are you familiar with the above cemetery? I can't find anything relevant to its existence in anything about Guilford other than on Find A Grave. Since you have taken so many photos of cemeteries and tombstones around Guilford, I thought you could perhaps tell me if it ever existed. Please send me a message on Find A Grave Memorial# 171761721, memorial for Daniel Hoadley. I don't put contact info on Find A Grave anymore due to some of the nasty mail I have received.

Sylvia aka Mookie

Close to Wallingford?
Hello Jan,

Do you live in proximity to Wallingford? I was there two weeks ago, on a genealogy tour of New England. My Allen's/Alling's are from New Haven, but primarily, Wallingford. When I visited Center Street Cemetery, it was only 2 pm in the afternoon on a Thursday and no one was in the office. I knew that my Allen and Mattoon ancestors were bureid there, but I didn't know where. I found John and Philip Mattoon (late 1600's/early 1700's burials), and several Allen's, but not specifically my Allen ancestors. My 2nd and 3rd great-grandfather's were both Alfred Allen's, and I am certain they are buried in Center Street Cemetery. Any information you can impart would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Cecil Deming
Deming Grave Monuments
I believe the grave monuments you have for Philip Deming Monument # 24865119 belong to Philip Henry Deming Monument # 17978191. You have to look very closely. Philip Henry Deming was 27 when he died.
Philip Deming was 40.

RE: Safford photos
No problem!

I went on a walking tour at this graveyard today, a historian/author gave a talk on the stone carver Bartlett Adams and his shop, he featured these stones in the talk as being from one of Bartlett Adams students. As we were listening we realized that these were two of the photo requests we had seen for this graveyard, it was a happy coincidence :)

Jonathan Foote 1737-1801
There are 2 memorials for this ancestor of mine, yours = 18309886 and the other is 30599420. Have used the edit tab to link him to his father & wife, have emailed the other contributor. As I don't know how to merge (or if it is possible) duplicate memorials for the same person, I thought I'd let you two know.
Thank you so much for the information you have on Find A Grave!!!
From California to you
Happy Hunting!

Ledyard/Colonel Ledyard Cemeteries
What is the difference between Ledyard Cemetery in Ledyard, New London Co., CT, and Colonel Ledyard Cemetery in Groton, NL Co., CT? I show an individual buried in both cemeteries (actually, there are three memorials on this individual, and I would like to get the records straight). You are the photographer for the cover pic on both cemeteries, so thought maybe you could give me a good answer. Thanks so much.

What is this image:

You added it to Wheeler Cable's memorial but I'm not sure if it is actually located where he is buried or a picture of a located memorial somewhere else. It looks like a stone for his military unit.

thank you.
