Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you are new to findagrave, I suggest you read "frequently asked questions" carefully before making entries or requests.

Since I get a huge volume of requests, please make it easier for me to add biographical information, relationship links, or corrections by going to the page you want linked or corrected and click on "edit." Your info will be emailed directly to me and I can click on the link. If I get the email I will make changes, but generally I don't have time to email you. Please double check dates and info; if multiple items are misspelled or have typos, I am inclined to believe the other material may also be erroneous.

Please state your relationship when making transfer requests. You are able to add photos to any entry.
When the website started there was no option for linking relatives. I am happy to add desired links: please double check your numbers so errors don't make double work for both of us.

I am related to some of the people I have added; entries are also posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.

Please take digital photos of old gravestones in your area; some that exist today may crumble in a season or two, especially in areas with winter frost. In a way, your photo will preserve it. Perhaps it will be the only record of a particular gravestone. Please do not apply any substance to a gravestone to make it more legible; it damages the stone.

You may use my findagrave photos for your personal use, with attribution; anything to be published - please contact me for permission. Click on photo for larger format.

If you are requesting a photo in a large cemetery please take the time to get section and plot number from the cemetery office, if there is one. Your request has a better chance of being fulfilled that way. Most volunteer photographers work on the weekends when cemetery offices are not open.

Verify everything; transcriptions and even information "written in stone" may be inaccurate. A good example is when the date April 31 appears on a gravestone.

Most of the CT cemeteries have already been added to findagrave. When in doubt check under "New" and "Old" to see if you've missed the listing. Please HESITATE before creating a new Connecticut cemetery on findagrave. I'll be happy to research it for you to avoid duplication; so many alternate names and town name changes make it likely it is already listed in another place. The majority of CT cemeteries that existed in 1934 were surveyed on the Hale Index: www.cslib.org/halecol.htm. Although it contains errors and omissions it is still very helpful.

Another source of information is the Ct Gravestone Network: www.ctgravestones.com.
Your local library or historical society can also assist you. Ask for the person most familiar with the cemeteries or the history of the town.

On your memorial for Edward Grannis, you show his first wife Elizabeth's father as Edward, but according to their marriage register, her father is William.

Please correct, thank you.

RE: Charles Jarvis
Thanks for the reply! I am just amazed he is in Conneticut. A long way from Lambeth!

There doesn't appear to be other Jarvis in the graveyard, so who put up the gravestone?

More research to do!

Kind Regards, Jean Sanders

Charles Jarvis
Hi Jan,
For over 10 yrs I have been looking for Charles Jarvis in London (Eng)He was b 1764 and married my 3xgtgrandmother, Elizabeth FIRTH (wid) in London in 1797. Her first husband was a merchant seaman.
In 1814 he disappeared from the tax lists, but no death registered.

I am amazed to find him on your Find a grave site buried in Stratfield, Fairfield County,Conneticut.
in 1840.
I wonder who paid for the burial? and what he was
doing there? Possibly also a seaman?
So many questions but I am sure its the same man!
Is it possible to get a larger photo of the gravestone?
Many thanks for your site! Solved a mystery from the other side of the pond!
Regards , Jean Sanders

Josiah Nicols
Thanks for entering the additional information. I deleted mine. But I have a question: If you go to Old Congressional Burying Ground and enter Nicols only one comes up even tho there are several in the cemetery. Do you know why that is??
Thanks,
Dave Peck

Re;Nathan & Elizabeth Safford
I am writing about Nathan & Elizabeth Safford who are in the OLD BAPTIST CEMETERY Yarmouth, Cumberland County, Maine. Are you near this cemetery? If you are is it possible to get a better print of the tombstones for these two. Ones that have the printing legible to the eye. Trying to get someone into the DAR and I believe this is her line. Any help you give me would be appreciathed because every step of the way has to proven. Te tombstones are great but not legible. Thank you Jean
