Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I list someone you are related to, send me a note using the "EDIT tab," and I will transfer the page to you if I am not also a descendant. I will always follow Find A Grave guidelines and transfer within the generations stated. I usually go beyond this and will transfer older generations, if I am not also a descendant. However, if I have already completed extensive research on the person in question, by adding links, a biography etc, there is no need for a transfer. I myself use the great Find A Grave feature: Virtual Cemeteries. This is a wonderful way to keep track of family graves managed by others.

I am happy to add additional sourced information to memorials and also happy to correct any errors I may have made. Please use the EDIT tab for corrections if you find an error in my research or if you wish to add information [I will give you credit by linking your profile page from the added info in the bio].

When you use the EDIT tab I am sent an email with a link to the memorial. This prevents confusion about which memorial is referenced.

Best regards,

Here is a great website for calculating the birth date from stones that list only death date and age at death. Before you use the calculator, please read the fine print at the bottom of the page, which begins with; While doing some testing on this with 30+ death certificates already containing a birth date, death date, and age, I have found it to be only 39% accurate. It was 1-3 days off 38.5% of the time and more than 3 days the remaining 22.5%

Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.

Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.

Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life; not death, of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering, always.

Wife of Zebulon Howland

You have Zebulon's wife, as Lydia Cushing, with the wrong parents. God only knows that all of the women were named Lydia, so it isn't hard to do. I sent all my paperwork into the Mayflower, only to find out I had the wrong Lydia. Zebulon wife Lydia's father was Elijah Cushing, son of Nehemiah Cushing. It seems that Elijah died young, his widow re-married to Elijah Brown, who moved the family to RI. When Elijah died he left a will and record on Hannah Barker (her mother) and her children and how her prior husband's father Nehemiah Cushing, left his grandchildren property and it lists them including Lydia Howland.

Needless to say I didn't get into the Mayflower yet.

RE: Thomas Low: 47267892
I found record listing Thomas Low's first wife as Margaret Todd and his second wife as Susanna Stone Cutting Kimball. It is in 'New England Marriages Prior to 1700'. I am not sure how else to cite it.

RE: William Bond Martin's
It was a fairly tough one and somewhat unusual. May they all rest in peace.

RE: Claudie Bigarel # 38585198
I am happy to supply the information you requested. I am stationed at Fort Drum, NY and I am working with the Cultural Resources Department to update with all the data for those buried on Fort Drum. Previously this data has been difficult to access due to the lack of civilian access to Fort Drum. However, in 2009 Fort Drum completed a two year process to record every burial they could find on Fort Drum. This data was preserved in a data base that was also place online (first link). Claudie's burial information (second link) contained her death date that also included how many years, months and days she lived. Using this information I preformed the calculation to come up with a very good estimate of her birth date. While the day may be off I can be certain of the year and month. Below are the links I referenced, and let me know if I can be of any help in the future. FYI: the data base link often does not work quite right, let me know if you need help with it I also have the data base on disc.

William Bond Martin, Sr.
Thank you, Shari, for the information regarding Judge Martin, but William Bond Jr occurs three times. The first Jr. was born and died in 1797, the son of the Judge's first wife, Susan. A second Jr. was born in 1802 and died in 1828, again the son of Susan. Both of these first two Jr.'s are buried in Christ Church Cemetery in Cambridge. The third Jr. was born to the second wife of Judge William Sr., Sarah Ferguson Williams, in 1829 and died in 1875; he is buried in Spring Hill Cemetery, Talbot County. I will get Wanda to link William Jr. (III) to his father and mother. Again, thanks.
