I have done geneology for many year and find it very addicting.Ive been using F.A.G. for awhile and find it very useful and have met some great people that are understanding and very helpful and others not so understanding but this site is great and could not found what i have without it. I plan someday when time permits to photo and set up memorials myself. Would love to help people with thier family history. When i start and i have a memorial that is not part of my family i would have no problem transfering. I know what it means to take care of your own familys memorials. As of right now i am only involved with my familys memorials. If i have memorials that were transfered to me. If you feel the memorial is closer to your family i would have no problem transfering it. |
Our Lunt descendants came to America (Newbury MA) by way of England 1634-35.
I do most of my searches for Lunts and other close family ancesters. All my memorial are part of my family. My Lunt greatest grandfathers and families came from England to Newbury MA. settled to York ME. to Orono ME. to Plattsburgh NY. Some of the families remained in these area's but also settled in ME,MA,MI,MN,IL,WI,NY,CA,VT,ect. I have traveled to Newbury MA. to Orono ME. many times.I live in the VT,NY area would like to help anyone with info close by. F.A.G. and also myself feel everyone deserves a memorial!! Happy searching :)
*Feel free no problem to use any photos of mine for genealogy or family research with credit please. Most of my Civil War photos are from the NYS Military Museum. My hope is family can use them and ours and their descendants will always be remembered.
Couple of good books for Lunt research. (History Of The Lunt Family In America),(The Ancestry Of Abel Lunt)&(Freese Families 1749-1800) Freese book mentions a couple Lunt's that married into their family from Orono Me.
(Old Water Street Cemetery Orono Maine)
Note - The original Orono Maine cemetery was at the lower end of Water St. and Pine St. where the railroad station was built later and tracks laid. The cemetery became to small and was in the way of the railroad (European & North American Railroad) that planned to pass through town and railroad service started 1868. Thus the problem of moving bodies to Riverview Cemetery arose. 1850s started the removable of the remains. At a town meeting March 1867 to raise money for removable remaining of the bodies. It was noted that when the remains were removed some were too badly deteriorated to be removed and that some identifying markers were missing so were never removed. There are no complete records of burials in the old cemetery. Which presents a problem to genealogist who have information indicating that a certain person died in Orono but no records of an Orono burial can be found.

|Robin||RE: Charles O. Blake|
No, I am not familiar with this Blake, but that is not to say he wasn't a cousin. My Clyde Blake was ultimately a descendant of a Theophilus and Margaret Blake who were indentured servants (came together already married ... which is unusual for indentured servants) to Philadelphia in 1745 (birth dates unk). After completion of their contract they stayed in Pennsylvania for only a few years before buying and moving to a one hundred acre farm in Bath, VA, taking all their children with them. Theophilus died approx. 1797/98 and is buried there with his wife. Many of their descendants moved and proliferated with large families throughout WV. The direct lineage from my Clyde Blake to Theophilus Blake does not include any other man with the same name either directly or through siblings. But as I said, there were many lines of Blake descending from the Theophilus, and I am not familiar with all of them. The most well known Blake lineage is Jasper Blake through Hampton, NH, but there are other lineages as well. Hope this helps!

|Brian Molloy||Buffum Plot|
I found and photographed (to be posted tonight) the following Buffum stones:
Ruth C. 1893-1961
Albert C. 1817-1855
Nathan A. 1859-1862
Lydia S. 1828-1912
Within the Buffum plot (which is demarcated with granite corner stones) I found a stone in the same style of those above with the following name: Hortense Audubon. No dates. It is set separate from those noted above.
Also, within the 4 corners of the plot, there are more ornate gravestones for a Caleb Ordway, died 11/24/1884, 58 years, 12 months, and a Clarissa M. Ordway, his wife, died 9/7/1895, 68 years, 2 months. If you want photos of the latter, let me know.
|Brian Molloy||RE: Charles & Annie Buffum|
I can photograph all of the other Buffum stones if you like. The cemetery is about 2 miles from my house.
I believe I did see a Nathaniel Buffum stone.
I also found a Charles Buffum (1820-1898)
in the Orono Riverside Cemetery, and there are several more interred nearby. I took a photo of the central Buffum marker and of Charles' stone if you are interested. I suspect you might be more interested in the Lunts.
|John Arsenault||RE: Frank P. Horton|
I'll go ahead and accept your changes but then change the place of death to Whitehall.
|Candeux||RE: Mike Solomon photo|
Yes, that is correct. The Solomons are in the east half and Hiltners are in the west half. Now that I think about it, usually when the plots are designated like that (east half, west half), it means that the plot was split and sold separately, which means that there is not necessarily any connection between the two.

Thanks for your interest in John Johnson. I have transferred him to you. This grave is in cemetery where I have ancestors, but the yard is in disgraceful condition. I took pictures of stones that were still legible, as they may not be so next time through. Hope you will add the good info you have for him so others can benefit.

Thank you to both you and "littledarla" for doing so much to help me bring my family "past" together. All the work that you both have done, I cannot express how thankful I am. You two are the best. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
