Bio and Links
I'm a longtime National Guard member (Vermont, New York and now Pennsylvania).

I live in Vermont.

I'm interested in U.S. military and political history, and the history of Vermont and upstate New York in particular.

I contribute to Find A Grave and Wikipedia, as well as other locations.

I'm not hard to find if you want to contact me by phone or email to discuss my contributions.

RE: Memorial Request
Thank you. I looked everywhere using different name variations and couldn't find it.

Memorial Request
I don't know if you take requests, but I was wondering if you would add a memorial for Ruth Gordon, the actress and writer. I chose to ask you, as I saw some of the others you've done and liked your writing very much. I couldn't find a memorial for her, as I wanted to add her to my virtual cemetery.
I don't think I could do her justice myself. If not, that's fine,too. I'll understand.

Did you learn anything in regard to Africa Davis's burial place during your trip to Barre in September?

Thank you !
I am so excited to find my great grandfather's grave because of the work that you and others do on the find-a-grave website. I miss my genealogy research -it is so much easier these days with all the digital resources. I will be able to fill in the blanks and clean up any errors. Thank you so much for your contributions. Sincerely, Becky

Bradstreet Tomb
The Bradstreet Tomb was bought and cleaned out by the Ingersoll-Hathorne family of the House of Seven Gables about 1790. There are eight Hathornes, Ingersolls, and friends in the Tomb - Susannah Ingersoll in a lead casket, her adopted son Horace Lorenzo (Conolly) Ingersoll, her Uncle John Hathorne, friend Mary Stewart Clough, brother Sam Ingersoll Jr, and three others. See Robert Rantoul "Bradstreet Tomb" in obscure journal 189X (PEM Philips Library card catalogue) and the day after Horace Ingersoll's Salem Gazette 189X obituary which I read 20 years ago. I shall get more complete info after you contact me at

I don't think you'll find anything at the cemetery, I was there in July. The Pittsfield Historical Society and the Pittsfield Village records office (don't know the correct term) are across the street from the Pittsfield Cemetery, though. They were both closed when I tried to visit. Africa's original death record should be there and possibly much more. Good luck!
