Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a former newspaper reporter/photographer, high school journalism teacher, old fashioned genealogical researcher and long-time Find A Grave member, I believe the best memorial is correct, as complete as possible and linked to parents, spouse and children. It should memorialize a person, not just a name.

And that's why Family Find A Gravers such as I are here. Granted, other members have much different reasons. Some consider recording entire cemeteries a service; some just want to amass a bunch of names.

The vast majority of my memorials are for relatives which I've researched. I have documentation or, at least what I consider a credible source, for what these memorials say.

I make no claim of being perfect, and my dadgum mouse definitely has a problem with drop-down option lists. I'm more than willing to fix errors. As a family researcher, most of the folks I've memorialized are somehow related. I want to know if I've gone wrong.

In bygone days, I request evidence of changes [i.e. documentation]. Because of widespread acceptance of F-A-G's "do-it-yourself" edit process, I've decided to toss in the towel and go with the flow. However, any changes which disagree with primary evidence will be declined.

AND IF I CAN'T CONTACT A YOU TO ASK THE SOURCE OF INFO, YOUR EDITS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. IF YOU OPT TO POST UNDER AN ANONYMOUS SCREEN NAME AND AND NOT TAKE MESSAGES, DON'T EVEN WASTE YOUR TIME.

Use the final option on the edit menu if you want an explanation for a "decline," would like the evidence for one of my suggestions is based or if you're requesting a transfer.

I transfer maintenance of memorials to any researcher more closely related to the individual than I -- fourth cousin beats fifth cousin twice removed ["name collectors" need not apply]. I'd especially like to reunite relatives with distant in-laws whose memorials I've inherited but not personally researched. Please ask but also send proof of your relationship.

Asahel B Matteson obit
Hi,

Thanks for the information. That helps. If I find any others, I will link them in if possible.

Here is his obit. It states brother Clark and sister Rhoda in it and they were still alive from Jared and Polly when he died.

Asahel B. Matteson, for thirteen years an esteemed resident, died yesterday from apoplexy after an illness of fourteen weeks. He was born in Shaftsbury, VT., August 18, 1824 where he lived up until thirteen years ago. He was a carpenter and was for forty two years a member of Red Mountain Lodge F. and A.M. Lodge of Arlington, VT., and was for sixty years a member of the Baptist church. Mr. Matteson was twice married. His second wife was Julia Miller of Hoosick Falls, who and two sons, Alfred Matteson of Shaftsbury and Ernest of South Shaftsbury, VT., a brother Clark Matteson and a sister Miss. Rhode Matteson both of Shaftsbury, survive. The funeral will be held from the house, 28 First Street, tomorrow afternoon at 2
o'clock. Rev. W. E. Webster officiating.Interment will be in Maple Grove Cemetery.

The Troy Times Wednesday Afternoon, June 22, 1904

I think that Caleb and Jared were brothers but no proof has been found yet. Going from there I have the lines all the way back to Rhode Island in 1646. You and I are related through Solomon Matteson's wife Rosannah Matteson. Her grandfather was Uriah Matteson from Rhode Island.

You have him listed as being buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Sterling, Windham, Connecticut. May I ask where you found this information?

Sincerely,
Shirleyw55..

He is family.

RE: Hudsons in Woodland
Carol,
I have recently been photographing in Woodland. I am concentrating on the older stones. What Hudsons were you looking for?

Joseph Washington Parker - memorial #86544844
FYI ... I took a photo of the grave marker for Joseph Washington Parker and posted it to the memorial page you created for him.
