Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired State of CT Social Worker/Case Manager for the mentally retarded. In retirement I have become very interested in genealogy and researching old cemeteries. Currently I am President of an old Rev War Cemetery in northern New Milford and am in the process, with a small group of associates, in repairing and resetting many of the old stones in the cemetery. In addition, we have 'adopted' three of the "orphaned" cemeteries in northern New Milford (CT).My wife and I belong to the CT Gravestone Network which is comprised of a wide group of individuals dedicated to the preservation of our landmark cemeteries throughout the state of Connecticut.
I do travel and take photos of graves in the northern New Haven, northern Fairfield and southern Litchfield counties in CT
I am interested in locating information regarding the Bradbury(Hartford Co., CT), Ryley(New London Co CT), Keigwin (New London County CT) and Wyatt(eastern Delaware, eastern Maryland) families who are my direct genealogical relatives) for whom we need more information to complete our genealogies.

My Grandfather
Hi... I was surprised to see my grandfather Daniel John Dickinson had a memorial so quickly. Being a member here myself, I was waiting to create his until actual internment in the Spring. We just had his wake and funeral last night for heaven's sake. That said, could I please take over my grandfather's memorial? I assure you, I won't delete your work but rather add to it. Thank You. ~ Jennifer Dickinson

I was wondering if your Gregory Watterworth was ever married to Deborah Jane Holden? I know she married a Greg Watterworth but I'm not sure if they are the same person. Thank you - Carol Holden

I would appreciate it if you would transfer William Wartonick to me. He was my great uncle and I have a strong interest in my family history. Thanks

Clarence Godfrey 76631828
I would appreciate it if you would transfer Mr. Godfrey to me, as I have just added a memorial for his late daughter, Carol, who was an old friend (I just recently came across a clipping of her newspaper obituary; she passed in 1969).

If you prefer not to, then I have some additional information you may want to add to his memorial; let me know and I will send it to you.


Thanks!!

(and BTW, I've seen some other memorials that you have that I would like to acquire, mostly old friends....if you are open to this, please let me know and I will send you the memorial #'s.)

Hi Michael, what can you tell me about Alvin Jennings 35477461? Are you related to this family? I am trying to connect him to a David Jay Jennings and find their parents. Thank you, D'Ann

RE: Anton & Phil
Hi Mike,

I apologize for just getting back to you, my computer decided to take a nose dive. unfortunately, computer repair was never my strong suit. My son came to my rescue, and I'm up and running again, he never ceases to amaze me with his computer knowledge.

Yes Mike I received the memorials, and I sincerely appreciate it. Both Anton and Phil were good friends of mine, and I'm extremely thankful for your kind gesture.

On their memorial pages, I acknowledged you for not just entrusting me with their care, but for their creation as well. I just got that done, and was sending you this note when my computer took the dive.

Mike, again Thank You, and all my best for a very happy & healthy New Year.

Sincerely,
Randy

RE: Anton Torre
Hi Michael,

I'd be honored to manage Butch's memorial, that was Anton's nickname. Butch & I worked together at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft, and have been good friends for 25 plus years. So, I'd like to accept your kind offer, thank you very much.

I hope I'm not being too bold, but you have another memorial Phil Decrisanti # 101264081. Phil, Butch & I all worked in the same department at Pratt, and I've also known Phil for just as long. The 3 of us were close friends. I know you don't have to because of course we were not related, but I'd welcome the opportunity to manage Phil's memorial as well, it would be much appreciated.

Michael, I hope you had a joyous Christmas, and have a very Happy New Year. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Randy
