RE: Charles Jarvis
Thanks for the reply! I am just amazed he is in Conneticut. A long way from Lambeth!

There doesn't appear to be other Jarvis in the graveyard, so who put up the gravestone?

More research to do!

Kind Regards, Jean Sanders

Charles Jarvis
Hi Jan,
For over 10 yrs I have been looking for Charles Jarvis in London (Eng)He was b 1764 and married my 3xgtgrandmother, Elizabeth FIRTH (wid) in London in 1797. Her first husband was a merchant seaman.
In 1814 he disappeared from the tax lists, but no death registered.

I am amazed to find him on your Find a grave site buried in Stratfield, Fairfield County,Conneticut.
in 1840.
I wonder who paid for the burial? and what he was
doing there? Possibly also a seaman?
So many questions but I am sure its the same man!
Is it possible to get a larger photo of the gravestone?
Many thanks for your site! Solved a mystery from the other side of the pond!
Regards , Jean Sanders

Thanks for entering the additional information. I deleted mine. But I have a question: If you go to Old Congressional Burying Ground and enter Nicols only one comes up even tho there are several in the cemetery. Do you know why that is??

Re;Nathan & Elizabeth Safford
I am writing about Nathan & Elizabeth Safford who are in the OLD BAPTIST CEMETERY Yarmouth, Cumberland County, Maine. Are you near this cemetery? If you are is it possible to get a better print of the tombstones for these two. Ones that have the printing legible to the eye. Trying to get someone into the DAR and I believe this is her line. Any help you give me would be appreciathed because every step of the way has to proven. Te tombstones are great but not legible. Thank you Jean

Copied/Moved your photo
I created a record for Nancy Wityak 9568843 in the Three Saints Cemetery in Seymour CT. You had created a record for her husband Simeon with a photo. Her information is on the stone, but in Cyrillic so you may not have been able to read it.

I went ahead and copied your photo to the record, giving you credit in the caption. I know it's not the preferred way and I usually wouldn't even do it, but this is an aside I happened to stumble across as I'm in the throes of working on a different Russian cemetery and I was afraid I wouldn't loop back. With your massive contributions to the site I didn't know if you wanted to deal with this minor "dusting and cleaning" edit that wasn't easy to request through the edit tab.

If you'd prefer to repost the picture as you, just drop me a quick line and I'll remove the one I posted. (Even "delete photo in 9568843" is fine - no niceties needed as I'm just trying to keep the site tidy and complete)

Cheers, Erin

Your Photos in Olde Mansfield Center Cemetery
First, thank you for doing so much to help find family members.
I am presently working on WikiTree adding Palmer/Barrows/Crane Family members. I'd like to dress them up with a photo of their headstones. You have some very nice ones in that cemetery. May I have your permission to put them on these people as I add their profiles to WikiTree. I read that you gave permission for personal use; however I wanted to be sure that Wiki would be ok. I will of course attribute.
Thank you again,
Darlene Scott Kerr

Ancestor Burial Records Have Been Lost

I have called Holy Trinity Cemetery to find out the plot info for my ancestor, Patrick Gibbons, but the information has been lost or was never kept they tell me. I don't know if this is something you can help me out with or not, but I have no idea where else to look. I thought I would give you his information and if you happen to see his name while you're helping someone else, perhaps you could snap a photo and put it on the findagrave site.
Name: Patrick Gibbons
Born: 17 March 1828 (Ireland)
Died: 28 May 1904 Wallingford, Connecticut

I have his death certificate and a copy of his obituary which states he was buried in the Holy Trinity Cemetery. I would love it if there is a photo to be had. I'm hoping his wife may be buried by him as well as I don't know her death information. If you need additional information, please contact me. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Found Great-great-grandpa
Thank you so much for your work! We were able to find out information about our great-great-grandpa Patrick Downing because of you! In looking at the information on him, it says that it is an "unmarked" are the details about his burial (birth, wife, and death) know if it isn't a marked grave? Would it be possible to get a picture of how the information is known? We are incredibly grateful for this bit of information given! Thank you!!
