Bio and Links

My family research started in 1980.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

Margaret E Ferris (#57266690)
Hi there.

I was working on Assumption Cemetery (new), in Westport, CT and came across the entry for Margaret Ferris. The particular cemetery where the memorial is did not in existence in 1864, and Greenwich is a couple of towns eastward from Westport along the coast.

I can try to stop off at the Greenwich Town Hall and take a look at the burial log for 1864, if it's available, in the coming weeks.

I suspect she's actually in either Putnam Cemetery or St. Mary's in Greenwich, but I'll take a look see.

Sorry I tried calling them again today to see if they could tell me, but they must be closed. I am getting no answer.

RE: Julia Goldberger
Regarding whether Julia Goldberger has a headstone or not. I do not know, I talked with the Cemetery, which is how I got the grave information for her.

Hi.. thanks for the update to this memorial. If you are related in any way I'd be glad to transfer him to your care. I'm not related at all. Thanks, Dana

I gave a problem to this request because there is no grave location on this memorial created by you. I also contacted "Farrar and related families", who requested the photo with very specific instructions of what they want, to which I agreed, and then I claimed the request. This memorial was just automatically removed from my claims list because it got old. I just want you to know.
