Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 those of you researching your 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.

A big thank you to the many contributors who have linked memorials that they've submitted! I'm especially interested in linking people to their family members who gave their lives serving our country. Let's honor them always.

I'd like to apologize here to those of you whose mailboxes I've loaded with requests for you to link your memorials. Sometimes I get a little carried away.

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 very much 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

Hugh West Stidger
Hi Steven, I saw you had some requests for Stidgers in Mt. Rose Cem. I found a Hugh West Stidger 1910-1945 in the Pennisula Cem. in Ohio County, Wheeling, WV. Just wanted to let you know in case this is someone connected to the others in Mt. Rose. Carla :)

Old Willimantic Cemetery Windham CT
I went to this cemetery yesterday and found Henry Bassett's gravestone. It is near the back under a tree and I had to use my reflector to be able to see the inscription. I will post the photos of his and his wife's soon.
Good luck with your genealogy,

Transfer of management
Thanks for the transfer.

RE: Henry Aldrich, Have you tried the National Archives to obtain his military records? Sometimes there are enlistment papers or death records that offer information.

RE: Albert Aldrich
I'm sorry I didn't find Mr. Aldrich, though.
He's not on the interment list which is on site.
I live close enough to the cemetery though that I don't mind running out to do photo requests there. Thanks for the note.
