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.

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. ~Dale
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. Carole Spruce
CIVIL WAR...... 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
RE: David Baker #53207377 Hello, David Baker's children were Charles Grafton Baker, Eliza K. M. Baker, George Washington Baker, James Gibson Baker, Eliza Jane Baker, Amanda Smith Baker, Margaret Baker, Morris Lafayette Baker. I have marriage information for Charles and Eliza K. M. I suspect Eliza Jane must have died early or young, as another girl was named Eliza K. M. Would be happy to share any info with you. My email address is email@example.com. Sincerely, Marilyn Maryott
RE: thomas horton Who knows? This isn't the first time I've had problems with 'genealogy records'. My great, great grandfathers tombstone has an incorrect birthdate on it - 1894! He had remarried and moved away and possibly his second wife had no clue? Any ways, I checked three records including his Canadian birth records that all agreed - 1887!! Thanks again - my family is going to be so surprised and.....I will credit the NYS M.M. and Find A Grave
WONDERING....... I checked the roster of the 86th NYS Volunteers to make sure there weren't two Thomas J. Horton's in that roster - there isn't. The only other Horton on the roster is William Horton who is Thomas Jefferson's brother. Do you have access to a photo of William? Would love to have one to add to our families genealogy. Which by the way I will add Thomas Jefferson's photo to and give you credit for the photo being posted on Find A Grave. Thanks, again! WNH
Thomas Jefferson Horton........... I thank you so very much for your quick and kind response to my query. I strongly believe whoever posted the original Find A Grave on a Thomas 'James' Horton in the Monterey cemetery is wrong and will contact them. As I said I have been in that cemetery - it is very small and there is no other Horton in that cemetery other than Thomas Jefferson...see gravestone photo. The Stephen Horton # 48423520 you refer to in your message is my great, etc. grandfather and yes, he is the father of Thomas Jefferson Horton refered to in my earlier message. As noted before I have the Civil War pension record of Thomas Jefferson and everything noted in the record posting of "Thomas James" is actually the record of Thomas Jefferson. I have the above referenced Stephen's will and the Thomas Horton in that will is Thomas Jefferson and not Thomas James. Also, the photo provided in Find A Grave # 48423520 of Stephen Horton was added by me. I have the original photo. However you came about that photo of Thomas Jefferson Horton I appreciate it very, very much! Thank you! WNH
T. James or T. Jefferson P.S. I meant I don't have a photo of T. Jefferson in his Civil War uniform. Check my posting on FB and look at your photo and mine - compare them - do they look like the same person? I think they look a lot alike. I believe mine was taken before his service but not sure. Thanks, again.
Thomas James Horton or someone else ???? Dear Sir: I noticed your additional information that was added to a Find A Grave posting concerning a Thomas James Horton buried in the Monterey Cemetery, Schuyler County, NY. I was wondering where you got the photo of the above mentioned soldier and the information that was posted on Find A Grave. The reason - if you check Find A Grave just below the posting of Thomas James Horton is a posting I placed on Thomas Jefferson Horton - who is my great-great-great Grandfathers brother. The information posted concerning Thomas James Civil War service is exactly the same as mine for T. Jefferson. I researched all of the information on my ancestor including his pension record and visited the grave as well. Any ways, I am wondering - about the photo - I don't have a photo of my ancestor and was wondering if the photo you posted on Thomas James is actually that of my ancestor Thomas Jefferson. Would love to straighten this out. Please message me at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP. Thanks W. Horton
