RE: re correction for Joseph Kellogg
I'm sorry that info is for his uncle.

Martin is the name of his grandfather, father and brother.

I have posted correction for his parents

findagrave Horatio Abbe #26159766
Dear Jan,

You have done a tremendous amount of work for this website. In the Enfield Street Cemetery I have just added Col. Robert Morrison Abbe and his wife Maria Norcott Abbe, ancestors of mine. I also added three of their children who passed away very young from the following sources:

The "Abbe-Abbey Genealogy" by Cleveland Abbe, New Haven Conn. 1916 p. 308, and Charles R. Hale Collection of Connecticut Cemetery Inscriptions.

As I was going to add Horatio Sargent Abbe from the same sources, I noticed that you had already given him a place to rest. So I do wonder if you could either transfer him to me, or add him to Robert Abbe and Maria Abbe as their fourth child who died young? He was born in Enfield on Nov. 19, 1829.

Thank you so very much for your help,

Dorothy Dreher

Hi Jan -
I's been a while since we have talked. I was asked(on question that I can't answer so thought you might be able to help me out. Someone on Ancestry added a headstone photo Layman Bradley (1754-1822) and noted it was in the Gilbertown Cemetery. Is this one in the same as Aspetuck Cemetery ?

See Find A Grave Memorial# 86612541 where I sow him to be buried.

I went ahead a asked for a headstone photo.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Jan, Thank you for the work you have done to document family graves in the Old Stratfield Cemetery. This is a great resource. Years ago my brother and I made calls to initiate a cleanup of the cemetery which had become overgrown. Quite a few of my ancestors are buried there.
Robert Lacey,

cemetery information
Do you know where I can find information or do you happen to have any information on Gardner Cemetery in New London? I have family buried there and was interested in knowing more about the cemetery because I believe it is a private cemetery. I appreciate any information you can provide to help my research, thank you for your time. Also I have several pictures I took while visiting the cemetery of my grandparents headstones, if those would be helpful I can submit them, thanks.

Can you please correct the parentage for my 5th great grandmother,Eunice #27898908? Her name was actually Eunice Parker Bristol. Her parents were Gamaliel Parker #58585892 and her mother was Elizabeth Blakesly Parker #58586009.
Her husband's parents are incorrectly linked as hers.
Thank-you so much for your time and consideration,

I was wondering, you mentioned you were a librarian in Connecticut? Is their any possibility you could find any info on my great great grand parents who lived in Meriden Connecticut. If there is an obit for my GGF - or maybe who Annis' parents were that would be wonderful.

Hi Jan -
James W. Fitzgerald and Nettie Fitzgerald are my great grandparents and Ralph Fitzgerald and his wife Mary are my great Uncle and Aunt they are all buried in Montowese Memorial Cemetery.

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer them to me so that I can link them to my grandmother.


Added by JAW on Apr 09, 2015 3:30 PM

Thanks again. I appreciate the transfers of Julius, Eunice, and Grove Beach. This has made all the additions and linking so much easier. Plus, it is nice to have the family together.

Thank you so very much for all that you have done.

If you could find the reference, it would be wonderful. My uncle and I are trying to collect family photos, and your contribution has been a godsend.

Thank you so much,
