A note about the ENTOMBMENT category on death certificates: entombment at Ascutney Cemetery is always temporary and doesn't indicate the final disposition of the body. Entombment occurs when a grave can't be dug because of frozen Vermont ground, or some other circumstance delays burial. The stone tomb was used before the 1980's when the modern storage facility was built. There's another step before burial or transfer to another location; either a Burial Permit for Ascutney Cemetery will be issued with the grave location, or a Transit Permit will be issued with the final destination. These records aren't on line. If in doubt, let me know and I'll check the records at the Windsor Town Office. IMHO, it is our responsibility in giving last respects, to place the memorial in the actual final resting place.
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), Name, 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. If you don't know the rules, please take the time to read them at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=listFaqs.

John E. Ellsworth I got your edit on John Ellsworth. I always try to do a little research when I get an edit - like full dates of death, etc. When I looked into John I found a family tree showing William Henry Ellsworth and Elisabeth Wheeler as his parents. The reason I'm questioning your request is that William Ellsworth and Elisabeth Wheeler are at the same cemetery. I didn't see an Abram or Hester. I know the tree I found can be wrong so I'm just bringing this to your attention. You mentioned you had a death certificate. I'm just wondering if we're talking about the same John Ellsworth. Please let me know. You also mentioned you are a family member. Do you want this memorial transferred to you? I'm not related in any way so would be happy to transfer it. Linda
RE: Abel Ellsworth 68178676 I just got finished replacing a military stone for a family member from 1942 that was incorrect - it is a matter of talking to the Veteran's Administration - they are in the Poughkeepsie Journal building here. Just need proof of correct dates. The obit had the wrong birth date also I see. I looked at his Draft Registration card and it does have the correct date. The DOD is also incorrect - he died on the 13th and was buried on the 16th. You can get both corrected at the same time at no cost to you.
RE: Ellsworth Family memorials I have looked at the memorials, and they are family for me also. As I have stated in my bio the newspaper has given permission for the obits to be used, and the objection that Find A Grave had was that they might be "owned" by the newspaper and therefore a copyright issue. Since you have also added obits in the bio, and they are from different newspapers that would also negate the argument for not adding obits. I would think having the information would enhance the memorial, and as I am trying to put together a book using the obits from the Poughkeepsie newspapers it is helpful for me to link family members using the info from them and assemble the book. I would think you also would like to know we are family because I would not add it if they were not related to me. I am not trying to alienate people here, so if you really object to what I have added I can remove, I just wanted to point out these things.
