William Peters: There are at least two people who know the facts {as opposed to guesses} about this William Peter's marriage and death records. You and me. Every family tee I have seen has got him living and buried in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. They also have him married to at least three different people other than Phebe Hungerford. Amazing. It is refreshing to see the correct information for a change. Keep up the good work. Accuracy is important.

Hi Jan,

My question is have you ever come across a cemetery called Brumbley Cemetery? It is in the Town of Norwich New London County, Connecticut. I am researching Spicers and Brombley/Brumbleys buried in Norwich. I found the cemetery through a Google search but can't find it listed in Find A Grave.

The website gives no location for the cemetery and I found it through There are just 19 names listed. Here is the link

Any help you can give me would be appreciated...
Thanks, Mary Lou

Dear Jan,

Thank you for transferring the grave to me. Most of all, thank you for adding the grave to Find-A-Grave so that I knew about it. I am a retired teacher on Long Island and can't travel around that much anymore.


Mrs. Barbara Farrand Doxey,
a relative of John Gilbert Peak(e) through my great grandmother Helen Peake (1829 - 1891), music teacher at Hudson, New York, and second wife of Joseph Steevens Farrand. At the age of 35, Helen married and had five children who lived to adulthood. She also helped raise many stepchildren.

Hi Jan,

Thank you for all the pictures that you post of grave markers!!

I have an ancestor that you have posted pictures for. I am requesting your permission to use them in my genealogy database and a possible book (years from now) that will be given to family members. I would credit you John C. Anderson as having taken the pictures.

His name is Samuel Penfield and he is buried in Alderbrook Cemetery in Connecticut.

Thanks again,

Linda Rogers

Thanks for the prompt edit request. Wish everybody was as quick. Another person and I are working on the same group of people and we are sometimes overlapping edits, so this being done is great. You have done a wonderfull job at Pierce Hollow. Makes the searching so much easier. M.Andersen

RE: Stephen Frost
Thanks so much for your thoughtful response. Now that I know the info was from Hale's that's a help... Margie

Stephen Frost
Hi Jan,
Could you please take a look at Stephen Frost FindAGrave #136212033? Is this the same person as your #20847633 - the husband of Elizabeth Lockwood?
I realize they are in different cemeteries, but they sound like the same person, and I am trying to reconcile where Stephen was truly buried. He's my 4th great grandfather.

Thank you so much for the photos of the tombstone of Giles Wilcox and his daughter Sarah. Is the Old East Cemetery in a state of disrepair? I do not know how you managed to find this stone since it seems to have deteriorated so much. Your efforts are appreciated.

I am so sorry, I gave you the wrong Memorial 3 in my original question. I was asking about the inscription on the Rev. Joseph Moss headstone in Old Derby Uptown Burying Ground, CT cemetery. It is #19356461.

Hello, I am looking at the memorial cited above for one of my ancestors. There are two pics posted for headstones. There is one that is gray colored and I am wondering if you can tell me what the headstone says. Thank you!

Samuel Terry
For some reason, I can't send an edit. It gives me "unknown reason" - good grief.

Would you kindly add this to my ancestor, Samuel's bio (he is memorial #25777009): (THANK YOU!!)

Son of Samuel Terry Sr and Ann Lobdell. Grandson of Stephen Terry and Elizabeth Joan Hardy, and Nicholas Lobdell.

Samuel married Hannah Morgan 17 May 1682 and had four children; Hannah, Samuel, Rebecca and Ebenezer. Hannah died 17 Jan 1697.

Secondly, Samuel married Martha Boardman, the daughter of Samuel and widow of Benjamin Crane Jr. They were married 04 Jan 1698 and had st least two children: Benjamin Terry (who married Hannah Pease and fathered my 4th great grandmother, Submit Terry) and Jacob Terry

North Stamford Cemetery
Hello Jan,
We have a few ancestors in common. I was reviewing the Find a Grave information on several of the Scofields and saw your picture of North Stamford Cemetery behind the chain link fence at the reservoir. First, I wanted to let you know that you typed the location as Lakeview Road, but it's Lakeview Drive. Second, I see that you and Mike Perry must have been able to gain access to the stones at some time. Could you please fill me in on who to contact to do this? Next time I come up for a visit, I would very much like to see some of the graves. Thanks so much!

May I use your photos of the Ives's headstones in Torrington Cemetery? I will use them in my family tree and on with your permission, and I will credit them to you. Thanks for the time and effort you put into Find A Grave.

RE: Doolittle & related gravestone photos
Thank you so much for your permission as well as All the Hard Work (I've been photographing gravestones here in Colorado, too!).
Find-A-Grave has been such a wonderful resource to find, contribute to and share our ancestors... It takes great volunteers, like you, to make it what it's become!!
Again, thank you so much - I will, of course, give you full credit for any/all photos of yours that I use!
-Ro Fleury
