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.

Hi Michael,

You photographed my great Aunt her daughters marker, would it be possible for me to use the photo on my genealogy website? I would give full credit to you with your Find a Grave member number. My website is The photo is on this memorial Thanks so much for creating their memorials.

Incorrect photo
The photo that you added for
Find A Grave Memorial# 144103827
cannot possibly be correct. She died in 1915 and the photo you added is a modern day image.

RE: Linda Lemke
Hi Michael,

The Funeral Home's website lists St. Michael's Cemetery in Stratford as the burial site, so I'd probably just go with that. Her husband is still alive, so that doesn't offer any clues.

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

Gregory S Watterworth
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

William Wartonick
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.


(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.)
