Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family, all 4 sides - names I am working on are Picariello; Ragosta; Kozar; Briggs; Permatteo/Piermatteo and all the branches from these names.

I am originally from and grew up in Needham, MA and now live in Bellingham, MA for the past 44 years. I try to add Bellingham and Needham resident's memorial when I can.

Along my searches, if I come across someone deceased, I sometimes add the notice to this site. If you wish I didn't, please let me know and I will delete it. But, remember, if someone is producing a family tree, these entries are very useful and the listed people will never be forgotten.

Hi, GrannyT!
I am also researching my Briggs ancestors. I can trace Briggs back to Carlton (Carleton) Briggs, b 1785. His son, Carlton was born Dec 10, 1804 in New York, d July 7, 1850 in Coxsackie, Greene Co, NY. By any chance connection to my Briggs?
My Briggs branch:
New York
Carlton m Olive Colson
Theodore Bradley m Harriet Emily Salisbury
John Edgar Briggs m Elizabeth North
New Jersey
Beulah M Briggs m Russell P Merrick
Robert Briggs Merrick m Evelyn Richman
Thank you for all you do,
Barbara Merrick Johnson

RE: Jerome Kozar #68065878
You are very welcome. For you info, I just recently took photos of all stones in the cemetery and are currently adding them as well as names missing from the SA listing on Find A Grave. I have 40 more to do and am doing them now. So if you have more here you need to search for, take a look as I may have added them by now.

Shedd memorials
Yes the Shedd’s are related, I’ve been going thru old family records and wanted to add the information. If you wouldn’t mind transferring them I would greatly appreciate it.

Not sure what happened but I know I saw her name listed twice. Looks good now.

Edit request
Please edit the dates for Nathaniel Lee Shedd (# 20904855). He married Cynthia Andrews in 1826, and married Sally Powers in 1847. This will enable the Find a grave database to display the correct mother for each child.
