Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you so much to the volunteers who not only list the information but also provide a photograph of the stones.

I'm 12th Generation American, directly decended from Thomas Chaffee (1635) and as such the Chaffee's and allied families are my interest.

The faq's are an amazing repository of information for FAG. You'll also learn a lot from the forums as well.

Do Not request transfers/corrections here they will be deleted. Please use the SAC feature by clicking the edit tab on the memorial needing correction.

To add an internal link in the biography, you would need to type
< a href="">Name< /a>
(I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)

Thanks to DaurRegt (#47891223) for the idea on putting the link on the profile.

RE: John Chaffe
We are trying to figure this out. On our phone and iPads the pictures look straight. I deleted the pics and put them back on but on the laptop they are sideways?

I believe I found the correct stone for James Barnard, but it's in pretty poor repair. I'll go back and do a better job of brushing the dirt off to see if I can see more details in the gravestone.

Lee Manning photo request.
As I expected, the headstone has not been set yet. Since it will be mostly likely ordered from the VA, it could take up to 3 months for the headstone to be delivered and then set.

I will check back with the cemetery staff and when the headstone is finally set, I will go back and get another picture. You won't have to do a 2nd photo request; I will keep this on my list of things to do.

Thomas Ring
Please DELETE memorial #105944981 (Thomas Ring.)

Thomas's wife Anne, was my mother's half sister.
I want to put the whole McKeever (Anne's maiden name) family together for all of my cousins etc who are also researching the family.

Recently, a daughter (in Ireland) of Thomas & Anne Ring, contacted me for family info. She also gave me a bit of info. It was great to "talk" to her!!

Thanks for all of your work. You are truly amazing!!

RE: Edward Walker
I did a quick search to see if I could find Edward's parents. Edward Merill Walker is buried next to his wife and parents in Oasis Cemetery which is about 6 miles or so east of Hancock Cemetery. His memorial number at Oasis is # 84063063. There are photos of his individual marker and a wide shot showing several members of the Walker family. I didn't take the photos, but I did photograph the entire Oasis Cemetery. I have similar photos in my Oasis folder.

I think you can safely remove the memorial for Edward Merill Walker at Hancock Cemetery (#69642420)

Duffy Father / Hickory Grove
Hi. What can you tell me about memorial 114229446? I saw a photo request for "Duffy Father", which sounded like a suspect entry. When I found the stone, it was in amongst a number of Sherman stones. Sure enough, memorial 117805135 has what I think is the correct information. Do you think 114229446 should be deleted? Tim

Frank H Chafee
On May 10, 2011, you requested a photo of the grave for Frank. On August 5, 2011, I fulfilled that request. I was just advised that my photo was of the wrong stone and that the correct photo is now on the memorial. (I deleted my photo.)
