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 :)
*Check out the (lunt Family Tree) on Ancestry.com
There are a couple Lunt trees. Check out the one with the spelling above..
*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.

Thanks for writing back. I did download the photo! But trying to contact NYSMM as there is an issue. All of my records indicate T.J.H.'s middle name is Jefferson. The photo you posted shows a middle name of James. Hoping to find who or where they got the photo andor information on middle name. They don't take emails so I just sent them a letter. Oh,I did try to access the photo on their web site but couldn't pull it up. Thanks again for writing!

|WNH||THOMAS JEFFERSON HORTON|
Hi! You left a photo of a Civil War soldier on my Find A Grave post of Thomas Jefferson Horton. My ancestor that fought in the Civil War. The photo states the soldier fought in the 86th NYS Vols and there is only one soldier listed as Thomas J. Horton that fought in that unit - my ancestor. However, the photo you posted identifies the soldiers name as Thomas James. Do you know where you got the photo from? I would love to make sure whether my ancestor was a "Jefferson" or a James. Thank you. W.N. Horton @ email@example.com

Hope you liked them. It was my pleasure. Glad to be of service.
|Chanda McAbee||RE: Lillie Mae Ashworth|
Yes, her father was William Thomas Keys and Fannie Brown Keys.

She's now all yours. I have a number of relatives buried in that cemetery and thought she was one of them, but that looks less and less likely. Even if she were, the relationship would be distant. If you find a connection to the Snows of Big Lake (Tileston Snow and son B. F. Snow), I'd be interested to know it.
|Kendall Mellem||Hannah Snow 75661727|
Thank you for the link you provided for Hannah Snow. I'm happy to transfer memorials to someone close to the deceased. If you would like a transfer, just let me know.
|Dale & Patti||Henry & Inez (Lunt) Butler|
Got your note on Inez. I have a listing for Stillwater Riverside Cemetery and I double checked it. Good news - Henry is listed as being interred there. So, we made a quick trip to the cemetery and sure enough, he is buried right next to Inez. I've set up a memorial for him and linked him to Inez and their son, also buried there. Photos to follow once I get them downloaded to my PC.
|Carole Spruce||Mem #120069732-Charlotte Dow|
Greetings! You posted a photo on Charlotte's page last year of "Charlotte and Bill Dow" with the note that you were not sure who Bill was. "Bill" was her husband Millard who passed much earlier (1960).
Even though I am very interested in my Dow family history I had not thought to look Millard up on Find a Grave until this AM.
Millard was my mother's eldest brother. The family grew up in Stillwater which you probably know is very near Orono ME. In fact most of Millard's mother's family is buried in Riverview Cemetery off Bennoch Rd.
Where did the photo come from? Excited to see it because I have very few photos of them. Are there others? Do you know the person who created the original record? Just wondering if she has a connection to Charlotte or possibly you have one?
I am new to leaving messages so hope this gets to you in a somewhat timely manner and look forward to chatting this way about them if possible. Thank you so much for the work you do for this site.
I have found out so much about various family members this way.
I forgot to comment about your posting that you like the Civil War. I do too - a lot. Besides Thomas Jefferson there were two other brothers - William and Theodore as well as two brothers-in-law who served. Also, on my Mom's side my great-great-great grandfather Franklin, his brother(s) William and George; as well as a brother-in-law. I have accessed pension records and the reports of each regiment they were in and can follow pretty much there journeys during the war and what battles they fought in. The oddest record is of George - he enlisted late, being the youngest, was in the Richmond/Petersburg area contracted diahrrea was sent to the Washington hospital,died and is buried in Arlington. Thanks again for putting me in touch with Thomas Jeffersons photo. I called my Dad today and he was so excited! WNH
