This person was our great grandfather and father of Harry Bridgman-Smith, our grandfather on my father's side of the family. I'd like to know if any further information or pictures are available pertaining to Watrous Beckwith Smith. Thank you for your help.

Jared Goodrich
Son of Margaret Orvis, William Goodrich has something amiss in the memorial. There is a copy of a publication which both refers to the wrong person entirely and the narrative states he is son of Jared Goodrich and Zillah Betts.

New Cemetery?
Hi Jan. I just noticed that St. Lawrence Garden Mausoleum was added as a different cemetery from St. Lawrence Cemetery in West Haven. Send me an e-mail, I noticed several cemeteries added now that do not exist.

Thank You

Find A Grave Memorial# 10084651, Julian Kalinauskas
I was wondering by chance if you are related to the Kalinauskas family found in Connecticut. I have been trying to find a listing for names in the CT cemeteries. I am searching for Ralph and Veronica and can't get anywhere from here in Ohio. I tried the links you have listed in your bio but didn't see an inscription list. Thanks, Kathleen

Linda Monroe
Esther Edgerton Reed (1769 - 1852)
To Jan,
First, I want to thank you for all the work you have done in preparing the Memorial for my ancestor, Esther Edgerton Reed. Second, my name is Linda Monroe and I am descended through my mother Juanita Gravatt. I am a 1st cousin 1x removed of 8th great-uncle. I wanted to inquire if it would be possible to transfer the Memorial to me as I have a book called "Ezra Reed and Esther Edgerton Reed Their Life And Ancestry (1912)" by Charles Edward Benton. I would be very happy if it would be possible to manage this Memorial and any other Memorials having to do with the Reeds and Edgertons. Thank you for your consideration.

Duplicate memorial/cemetery?
Hi Jan,
I was looking at memorial #18140772 that you had created for Mnxaia Kozin. I noticed that a member had created a duplicate memorial for someone by this same name and DOB, in a cemetery in the similar location of CT. It is memorial #83205987. My question is, do you know if the Greek Catholic Cemetery is the same as the Holy Trinity Byzantine Catholic Cemetery? It looks like there are many duplicates in the two cemeteries so I am assuming they are the same. I would like to try to get these two cemeteries merged together if they are duplicates. Thanks so much!

Thank You so Very Much Jan for taking a photograph of my 6th Great Grandpa. I have a private tree and since I have no photograph of Him, would appreciate your permission to copy your photograph to identify Him with at least a tombstone? I would ensure you receive credit by adding ''Jan Franco [your member ID].

Thank You very much for All of your very hard work and time.
Sincerely and Respectfully,

RE: Schofield, Martha Gilben
Good morning. . . . In reply to your question, I cannot say whether I may be related to Ms Lamb. Everyone came from Canada, very early 1900s. My grandfather, Charles Schofield married Margaret L'Hearux, one of 12 children, all of whom settled in New Haven. My grandfather passed away leaving my grandmother a widow with two small children, Gertrude (Schofield/Mantovani, Rudolf/Norkin, Joseph) (3) and Charlie (1). My grandmother later married, Gustav Carlson, 9 years her younger (both buried Beaverdale), from Sweden who headed the Connecticut Transit Company, where Uncle Charlie also was employed. So I cannot actually say with verification Ms Lamb is related. I've been away for so long a time, recently retired from Fort Belvoir, VA, here in the MDW but my greatness memories are being with Uncle Charlie, Auntie Martha, my little cousin Marilyn and living at 28 Nicholas Drive with my Nanny and Grand Pa and my wonderful Aunt Edna L'Hearux, who was always there. Take care. . . Thank you, Leelem.

RE: Schofield, Martha Gilben
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. I am assuming Auntie Martha is buried with my Uncle Charlie, since his name also appears on the monument? Confusing because he had/has a flat stone with his name. military service, WWII, DOB and DOD. They had been long divorced, but she never lost her feelings for him and was with him, stayed by him when he passed away in hospital. Originally Uncle Charlie were buried where he apparently specified, but my cousin, their daughter, Marilyn Schofield Colandrea (Patrick) had him moved to Northford. Never knew why, but now I do. What a beautiful story; they are together as should be, for always. Thank you, thank you, LOVE to you, Leelem.
