RE: Abbie Maria (Simpson) Howland
Hi Janet, Thanks for the kind words, but it is I who want to thank you... for all these memorials that I can put some extra information and photos of young faces to.
I'm just like you I think- these folks really do mean something special to us and we care they are not forgotten and are connected in death with the people they lived with and loved, so long ago in life.

Hi again Janet. I just added the birth record as a photo on his memorial. Feel free to remove it if you like.

Too Many Davids
You are telling is a family name. At least one in each generation. I have to follow each with their date of birth to keep them straight.

I did see your point exactly and was going to delete my memorial in the morning, when Russ contacted me. Duplicates are annoying. I only thought he was committed to creating one for Sr. so I added Jr. Thanks Again.

By the way, from one F.A.G. Contributor to another...Thank You. You are greatly appreciated. I could never afford to come out there and get these photos. Sandi

David Elliott 49607009
There has been a mix up in David's. The photo you took of David which goes with the death date on the above memorial is actually the gravestone for the man's son. I have build a new memorial for David the son (My 5th Great Grandfather) #161574861 and notified Russ Anderson of the date mistake on his memorial. Did you find a grave for Jr's wife - Deborah Elliot(t)?
Would you mind adding your photo to the new memorial.

Thank You,
Sandi Lewis - Malburg.

RE: Old Gustavus Cemetery
Hi Janet, I don't know if there is a grave for Sylva. If I have a memorial listed without a photo it is because of old cemetery transcript records. Is it possible there is no stone?

RE: Blossoms
You may be able to use this in the future:
My Mayflower ancestors, who came through Vermont, are
Joseph Blossom (b. 1783, Plymouth Co., Mass. – d. 1853, Somerville, Butler, Ohio), m. Sylvia Perry (b. 1780, Woodstock, Windsor, VT – d. 1863, Ohio)
She was the daughter of Daniel Perry (b. Mass., d. Ohio) and Rhoda Crocker (b. 1758, Woodstock – d. 1813, Ohio)
If you’d like more detail, please let me know.

RE: Melvin & Jane Blossom
I found the connection on an submitted tree.

They are all buried at the Blossom Cemetery and the dates fit.

RE: Levi Aldrich
Hi Janet, Thanks for your explanation and for adding the transcription. I happened to be in the South Reading cemetery yesterday and finished photographing and transcribing what I had left undone last fall. I hope I got them all. All the best, David

RE: Cyrus Brookins Probate extract
Thanks so much again, Janet. You have impeccable records! Yes, there was a bush wrapping itself around Cyrus' stone but it was not in bloom. Both stones were very difficult to read but I hope to get back sometime in a better light. Is Cyrus your relative? Judith and Ithamar are directly my ancestors. You do great work!

Judith Morgan Brookins
Hi Janet, I found Judith right next to Cyrus. There was room for Ithamar to be buried to the left of her stone. I haven't found him yet! I could only make out the first line of Judith's epitaph. It says "Though the body lies in deaths disguise..." It was not a good time of day for the lighting but I only had a short time to spend there. Will be returning for further investigation, hope to see if the Baptist church kept records. Thanks for your wonderful pictures!

Cyrus Brookins
Hi Janet, Today I made it to Vermont and found the stones for Judith and her brother-in-law, Cyrus Brookins. Just wanted to let you know I was able to read the rest of his epitaph. The last two lines are "Ye living men come think of this and fly/To Christ your Savior and prepare to die." I also think his death year says 1809, not 1802. Thanks for all your help on the Brookins family!

RE: Evelyn Mae Howland
I DID do what you suggested- about a week after your suggestion to me, I wrote to Deborah(directly from Evelyn-Howland-Simpson-Harmer's page) and explained that you also agreed that Evelyn should be with those parents.
I told her you had explained to me, that I needed to contact her because she had Evelyn's memorial. I gave her all the same info I had given you.
But I haven't heard anything yet.
She has responded well to me about other persons- so I don't know..... I'm sure I'll hear from her when she has the time.
Could I have sent you the same info twice? If so, I really do apologize- you have been helpful and kind to me and I sure don't want to offend or annoy you in any way.

Darn, I should've taken a pic when I was there! It is about 80 miles away, not sure when I will get that way again. (I have some grave repairs that direction, so maybe this summer.) take care, Marty
