Thank you so very much for photographing all those that you could find buried there. It was a tremendous help that you made Memorial pages for them. What a wonderful job you did! May I use your photos in my Family Tree (with proper credit)? Again, thank you. Helen

Re: Tamer Benton
Janet, I'm sorry you had gone to so much work and decided to delete the memorial.
I will keep the Evarts as a possible surname for Tamer as we have nothing else to go on. There were Evarts living in Cornwall, Addison Co, VT at that time. Are you researching the Evarts name? Possibly that is where the info came from.
Keep up the Good Work!! It is greatly appreciated!

Janet where did you find the maiden/surname (Evarts) for Tamer wife of John Benton?
Family researchers have been searching for this name.
Plus there already is a memorial for Tamer/Tamar, see Find A Grave Memorial# 68282078, they should be merged.

Thank You
Again, for your contributions to findagrave. I appreciate my fellow cemetery walkers,photographers for their time and efforts. I was up in the New England area last summer and had the chance to walk Old Bennington and Rupert St. in Vermont, as well as in Suffield, Ct and in Massachusetts. Such a beautiful area. Thanks for the so many Harmons that you have included in your ventures. Happy 4th!

Ruth Hollister Smith
Hi Janet - You just sent me information that Ruth Hollister Smith was the mother of Asa Smith. Thank you very much. She is my g-g-g-g-g-grandmother. I had no idea where she and spouse, Isaac, were buried. I am not asking for her memorial as I don't have anything I could add to it anyway. In fact, I agree hardily with your assessment of the rudeness of the recent requests for transfers. I attribute it to the Ancestry people moving in and thinking they own the place. I have left one particularly rude person's messages up on my page for everyone to see. Thanks again.

Thompson family line
Hi Janet, I am searching for the Thompson side for Minnie P Edgerton. I see that she is the wife of Frederick Edgerton and they settled in Wallingford. The Thompson family is originally from Starksboro, Vt. We know great information on her parents, William Thompson and Sarah Minerva Smith. I am really searching for the family tree going back to Samuel and Diannah Melcher Thompson which would be Minnie's great-great grandfather. Thank you for any help.

RE: Relief (Clark) Bent
Sorry it has taken so long to respond. I do not know Dorcas Clark's maiden name. I wish I did. I am working on 2 lines for a very good friend of mine that both came back to Rutland and Windsor counties in Vermont. These lines are her paternal grandparents lines. Inez Martin is the grandmother and direct descendant of Icabod and Dorcas Clark through their daughter, Obedience (Relief's sister). Some of the names in this line are: Martin, Davenport, Trask, Bailey, Clark, Graves, Horton, and Richardson. Her grandfather, Joseph Bell, has been the difficult one. His line is Bresett and Wood. I will be working them next. I had to take a short break for my grandchildren, but I will be back working on them tomorrow. If I find anything out, I will let you know. My friend and I both live in Indiana. My private E-Mail is: if you have any questions or ideas.

RE: Francis Griswold
Hi Janet,

Thanks for the edit. I was just going by the date on his stone. It is a little hard to make out but I believe it reads Apr 10, 1760.

RE: William Buckland
Sorry, that Manchester page gives the 3rd William as 1727-1795. My typo (it always amazes me you can't edit online messages here).

RE: William Buckland
Thanks for the response. I happen to be looking at a source right now in a book about Connecticut gravestones which mentions William Buckland, died 1724-25, his son William, 1700-1758, and his son, baptized 30 Jul 1727. The youngest William was a gravestone carver and even carved his own father's stone. In a page from the Manchester, CT Historical Society, they include William Buckland, died 1724, his son William, and a third William, 1725-1795, who was a "famous and prolific gravestone carver". All three were large landowners. What do your sources say?

My apologies. I must have inadvertently deleted the part where I explained. (In hindsight, I wish I could delete it all.) I believe most of what I said was in reference to your bio and also a unrelated incident that you helped me realize could have been misconstrued as trying to add notches to my belt. Thanks to you, I know better what to do and what not to do in the future. Sorry for the confusion.

Name correction
Find A Grave Memorial# 71310799 Thank you for providing me with picture of my family's plot. Lulu Monroe is my great grand uncle's wife.

I've corrected her name on her burial information. Lulu's maiden name was MONROE. Her father's name was Billings Monroe. Lulu was born in Dresden, NY Sept. 18, 1886. She died on November 29, 1953 6 months after being diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer.

Again thank you for helping me attach burial information to my family.

I wish I knew. She's my 4th great-grandmother and her date and location of death have been hard to prove. Lots of people have information, but no one can document it.

RE: Ashley burials
Thanks, Janet! Just so you know, Sarah's parents, George and Rachel Crapo; as well as, her sister, Polly, are all buried in Wells too! Oh, and my 3rd great grandfather was Henry and Collins brother and named my 2nd great grandfather after them. He was Collins Henry Ashley. :)

Learning process
First of all: Brian, THAT was funny!

Now, I'd like to start off by saying, for the record, that I am rather new, but I HAVE to be one of the biggest spokeswomen for, and I am still learning and would NEVER intentionally do anything that wasn't "on the up-and-up", but thank you for informing about proper etiquette. ;) has helped me in my genealogical research, not only in linking me to my past but also linking me to family members, whom, until recently, were completely unknown or were strangers! is an AMAZING resource and I hope people treat it and others with the respect it/they deserve!

That said: I am very interested in the mirror technique: could you please send me the info?
Thank you,
