Hello, Thank You for visiting! This site has been a tremendous library for me and is helping me track down long deceased relatives & other people of interest. I am familiar with the resting places within New Haven County. Drop me a line if I can be of any assistance. I have an interest in Fair Haven as well as immigrants from Italy who settled in the New York, New Haven area.I also try to pay tributes to all my Brother & Sister Officers who persished either in the line-of-duty or natural causes.What began as a family entity has now evolved into a passion.If you find one of your friends or relatives that I have posted and would like me to add a bio for that person, I would be more than happy to add it here.**Note** If you made it this far, please visit my "Flowers Please" virtual cemetery and plant a flower. Thank You
Guiseppe Milici 1854 Thank you so much Frank for Being willing to try to find my great grandfather's grave. The family is a mystery to me as I'm finding other brother's that came from Italy also and settled in New Haven and I would love to be able to connect them in the family tree. Your willingness to try to find and photograph for me is very appreciated!! thanks. Jeri
Guiseppe Milici Hi I have been trying to get a photo of my great grandfathers grave marker, I put a request a while ago and wrote to the photographer who appears to be very busy managing over 100,000 graves, well how do I request a photo from someone else?? would much be appreciated. He immigrated from Navara, Scicily, Italy and I'd like to have as much information as I can. thanks so much. Jeri Milici Mork
M. Alcott Miller I am so sorry, I have to correct what I just sent you! lol! I have a terrible head cold and things are not going straight today. The Joseph Alcott I was referring to is Joseph Bronson Alcott, not Joseph V. Alcott. And he is buried in FAIR HAVEN UNION CEMETERY. Hope this was not to much of a bother. I am straight now! lol Jan Hardin
Buella M. Alcott Miller Son of Italy, Thank you for posting some of my cousins, the Alcott's from New Haven. I do have a correction for you that you probably didn't realize. Buella M. Alcott (103900392), wife of William George Miller, was the daughter of Joseph V. Alcott and his wife LOTTIE BUELLA FIELD, not Mary A. Alcott. Mary was Joseph's sister. Her name was Mary Angeline Alcott 1865-1948 and she never married. Mary's # is 103891709. Lottie was born in 1878 in New Haven but I have not been able to find when she died and she does not seem to be in Find A Grave. Jan Hardin
Geneva Halliday and Bessie Halliday Thank you so much for the beautiful tributes to Geneva Halliday and her mom Bessie. They are my cousins. Thank you for these precious links to their gravesites.
Also, I am curious, do you know anything about Bessie's husband/Geneva's dad, who is Herbert Halliday? I have tried to find information on his resting place but could not locate anything. I am also not sure if he is buried in the same cemetery. He was born about 1894.
Westville Cemetary - Emily Nadeau Thank you so very much for taking pictures. I have been searching for my great grandmother for years. Her trail runs "cold" in 1934 in Lockport, New York. Can't believe she was "under my nose" all the years I lived in Connecticut.
I now need to ask a favor of you. All I can find out from the City of New Haven is that the Westville Cemetary is a City owned cemetary. No one in the City of New Haven has any idea who I can contact about this Cemetary to obtain a map with the location of my gg-mother's and gg-father's grave site.
When you have an opportunity is that something you might be able to send to me? I dont even have any idea how large this cemetary is, so I dont even know if you can re-trace your steps, if it is a huge cemetary and your not sure, dont worry about it, next time I am down I will spend a day or two looking for them.
