|Bio and Links|
I'm gradually entering the records for Ascutney Cemetery. The records list name, age and date of death, lot number, and some include birthplace. I'm drawing other information from Vermont Vital Records maintained by the Windsor Town Clerk and adding photographs as quickly as I can take them. If you find an error or would like to make additions to any memorials I've created please let me know via the Edit tab where you can: "Suggest a correction or an addition:|
Birth/death date, birth/death place,
Relationship (parent and spouse links),
Plot or GPS,
Marker transcription, or
Suggest any other correction or addition."
I follow the rules established by Find A Grave because I firmly believe it's important to respect the work of each "Graver", just as we pay our respects to those who have gone before.

|George||RE: Heath, Nardone|
Hi Dear Cathy,
Sorry for the delay getting back to you, I was travelling from Vermont via Manchester Airport today and saw some emails that said I could not reply to them. Also I was on my phone and not sure if I could of replied. I don't see your other emails here asking if I am new at this. You are correct I am new at putting records in and you may have seen a did a big batch of them in the last few days. As I visited and cleaned and put flowers and solar lights on the 8 cemeteries I visit for my ancestors I added in chucks once I had pictures of headstones. I also went back to 2 cemeteries in Lebanon and Hanover NH to take actual pictures of the cemetery signs since they were none for them in Find-A-Grave.
I apologize and did a search for my mom Louella Heath Potwin Nardone (Gregg) and didn't see a listing. When I read your entry I saw you had Louella spelled wrong and the middle name was different. I thought I searched George but may have assumed since my mom wasn't present then no one would of put him in, or I searched it and when I saw a January birth I didn't think it was him. So I do apologize for missing those your created. Actually I was up until 1am yesterday morning putting in all I could and tying all parents and such I knew back to their kids and siblings. I was up for a week and went out almost every day to work the cemeteries since I am the only one that really does that in any of the families I have put in.
I thank you for pointing it out and contacting me. I really missed the records you had created. If you know how to delete the records and wouldn't mind I would be happy to list you in creating the records and allowing me to take them over.
The photos would be great and I wonder can you submit them to the entries I made so you will have credit for them as well. I don't know how you'd transfer the pictures to me as the other emails I got said no-reply emails from Find-A-Grave. please help, I've been on a couple years but only did a couple things with the bulk of it being the last few days.
Part of the drive on all this was last year in July I visited my sister and brother-in-law for her Birthday. I had flowers sent to my sister's house and they arrived on Sunday 13 July, her Birthday. However Sunday morning before the flowers came when I saw my brother-in-law he was emotional and crying. Come to find out he got a call around 1am that morning and their youngest son Bobby passed away. My sister was devastated and when she came out of the bedroom later a UPS truck showed up and I said Oh No. I felt so bad that the flowers I sent for her Birthday came just as she was coming out from crying. So this year I vowed to myself to do all the cemeteries and put things up. They know I am the only one left in any of the families I go to still go to their ancestors graves. Something I always did as a young boy with my mom, and I got many weird stories over the years of how I have found other family members.
Sorry for the long story, but this year I wanted my sister and brother-in-law that I will always do the same as long as I can. The are both in their 80s since my sister just had her 80th Birthday 13 July. I didn't dare come up for this Birthday for fear of what happened last year. And it worked out great as I went with my sister to Bobby's grave, you see he is buried where they will be.
Any pointers I would appreciate, some times I fell like I'm the only left that cares about their ancestors. Thank you again Cathy and please let me know how you would like to go forward. I'm hoping we have a new friendship started.
On the lighter side in case you got a laugh about the solar lights, I get plenty of ribbing from my sister and brother-in-law about why our ancestors might need a light at their graves. I said I don't know sort of like if a tree falls in the woods is there a sound. I've never visited the cemeteries at night so I won't guarantee they lights come on. I do test them each year to make sure they do work in daylight. But next time up I will be visiting all the graves at dusk to night to see how the lights look at night. I'm not sure if they will be bright enough to take a picture of them though ;-) One year I brought a portable DVD player and my sister and I sat with it on George & my mom's headstone watching The Long Long Trailer, the whole movie and my dad's grave is just behind my mom's so he got to see as well ;-) My mom told me my dad would only go to se a movie once, except for The long Long Trailer, and he always laughed every time he saw it. I have it on VHS tapes, and a DVD and an extra backup. I even have it digitally somewhere in all the files ;-)
With that I will thank you again and hope a friendship has started. I will warn you some really odd things happen to me as I am the baby of Potwins, Heaths and Greggs.

Hi Cathy: Found you edit amongst the countless other FindAGrave edits. Have put her in St Francis along with lot #. Also, found all her husbands and updated the bio. Thanks for the info and very sorry it has taken so long to get this done. Two months is too long for me not to have input your hard work. Hope your day is a good one. Janice
|Stephen Barneby||RE: Ira and Betsey Savage|
Thanks. Great pictures!
|Cassandra Margaritis||Ira B Savage|
thank you so very much for the photos, do you mind if we post in our family tree??
|Stephen Barneby||Ira and Betsey Savage|
Thanks very much for taking the time to photograph these two headstones, and especially for going the extra mile to document Betsey's grave. I doubt that I would ever have had the opportunity to take the photos myself.
This is a very nice community service that you are doing.
Would you have any objection to my using your photos on my Ancestry.com family tree?
|lmyhre||Elisabeth Wheeler Ellsworth|
No, I'm not related in any way. I just set up the memorials. I noticed I did post some other Ellsworth memorials. If there are any you want transferred, just let me know. Otherwise I'll just do edits as I receive them. Happy hunting!
