|Bio and Links|
Many of my ancestors arrived in New England after sailing from Great Britain during the Great Migration. Shortly before the Revolution quite a few of them relocated to the Washington County, New York area and to Vermont and were among those who helped settle those places in the 1770s. Their names included Caldwell, Cramton, Frisbie, Harris, Horton, Hosford, Lewis, Morse, Moseley, Noble, Northup, Pierce, and Ripley. |
Dozens of the photos I've taken and posted here have found their way to other genealogical websites. I'm happy to be of help to people researching their family histories and you're welcome to use the pictures I've submitted for your genealogical projects, but I'd like to be given credit for taking them. Thank you for this consideration.
If anyone has any information about the Henry Aldrich who lost his life in battle during the Civil War at Antietam on September 17, 1862, I would certainly appreciate hearing from you. Henry is believed to have been born in Worcester, Massachusetts around 1821. He enlisted in the service early in 1862 at Bristol, Connecticut where he and his family lived and mustered into Company K - 16th Connecticut Infantry. When he died he left his wife, Sarah, and their three young children, Aaron, Eliza and Hubert. Henry also had an older son, John Walker Aldrich, who was serving in Company H - 13th Connecticut Infantry when his father died. I'm trying to learn where Henry was born, who his parents were and who John's mother was. I've only been able to find Henry in the 1860 U.S. Federal census and in his widow's pension application.
I'm guilty of submitting a couple dozen 'unknown burials' to link those people with their families and have put them in two of my virtual cemeteries. I've posted some documentation for them and am working to find where they're buried.
Maybe you can help??
Thanks very much! Steve

|thomas alexander||Harry and Mary Smith|
Hi Steve, you recently sent me a request to link Harry and Mary Smith and just wanted to let you know that if you are related, let me know and I will gladly transfer them to you. Just let me know.
|Barbara Milligan Rowe Elliottt||Re: Gertrude English MeGown|
I have linked family members to Gertrude English MeGown as requested. Please let me know if I can be of further service. I am most appreciative of your efforts here on Findagrave
Steven, you transferred several Dutton's to my a few years back. Over time I have found they are NOT part of my tree so I am transferring them back to you. Just because they have the same last name is no reason for me to keep them and someday maybe one of the real familty may want them. Thanks a million for your kindness in the transfers.

Thanks for including the grave of my great-great-grandfather, Rhys Wyn Jones on this site. He was a slate quarryman who had been in the US for around three months when he was accidentally shot and killed by a fellow Welshman, John Pritchard, one evening after a day's work at the New Empire Quarry at Truthville. The day before he was killed he'd sent a letter home to his wife to tell her and his two young daughters, Alice (aged 9), my grandmother's mother, and Leah (aged 6) to get ready to come over and join him in this new world. Unfortunately, another letter soon followed to Wales informing them of the untimely loss of a husband and father. The family stayed in Wales as a result. I visited the grave in 1996, the first family member to do so after a gap of 113 years.

|Bob O||RE: 29th CT in Evergreen Cemetery|
You are welcome - glad I could find them. I am very familiar with the 29th CVI. The markers I took pictures of were in the GAR section of Evergreen Cemetery. Your other two requests - George Ladieu and Matthew Osborn should be there as well but I couldn't find them. We have gotten a lot of since since so I will look for them again but first will check with the office to be sure they have a marker there. Wish me luck!

Links completed. Thanks!
Parents have been added. Wondering if you have a source for this addition.
Thanks for all the work you do in Find A Grave.

Hi Steve, Thanks for the note about Queen's parents. I linked them. I haven't done any work on Find a Grave in awhile. You obviously have. Your profile is an inspiration! I need to get to work!
