Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired State of CT Social Worker/Case Manager for the mentally retarded. In retirement I have become very interested in genealogy and researching old cemeteries. Currently I am President of an old Rev War Cemetery in northern New Milford and am in the process, with a small group of associates, in repairing and resetting many of the old stones in the cemetery. In addition, we have 'adopted' three of the "orphaned" cemeteries in northern New Milford (CT).My wife and I belong to the CT Gravestone Network which is comprised of a wide group of individuals dedicated to the preservation of our landmark cemeteries throughout the state of Connecticut.
I do travel and take photos of graves in the northern New Haven, northern Fairfield and southern Litchfield counties in CT
I am interested in locating information regarding the Bradbury(Hartford Co., CT), Ryley(New London Co CT), Keigwin (New London County CT) and Wyatt(eastern Delaware, eastern Maryland) families who are my direct genealogical relatives) for whom we need more information to complete our genealogies.

RE: Lucille Brennan Stone - Dover, NH
Hello Michael,

There are a couple different John J. Brennan's with different birth and death dates. One is buried at the Old St. Mary according to an entry, but that would not be the one that is Lucille's father. Her parents were John J. Brennan and Eva A. Brennan, and her sister is Barbara Brennan Holbrook. The headstone at the New St. Mary Cemetery list the family names of Frank Brennan, Eliza M. Cosker Brennan, Raymond Brennan, John J. Brennan, Eva A. Brennan, William Holbrook, Barbara Brennan Holbrook, Lawrence H. Stone, and Lucille Brennan Stone. Thanks for all you have done with findagrave with all the entries you have made. I had happened across the Brennan name only due to finding the Cosker name for someone. I have not been through the Old St. Mary Cemetery, yet I drive past it often. One of these days!

Lucille Brennan Stone - Dover, NH
Hello Michael,

I was in the New St. Mary Cemetery today in Dover, New Hampshire looking at a stone for information for someone in the findagrave community. The stone listed the names of Brennan, but also listed Cosker, Holbrook, and Stone. It listed Lucille Brennan Stone, and later I saw that an entry was created for her within the New St. Mary Cemetery that someone created in 2014. I then did a further check and observed that you have also created an entry for Lucille Brennan Stone in 2012, however you listed her as being in the Old St. Mary Cemetery. I just wanted to point that out and leave it up to you if any correction or note is warranted.
