|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 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

You are welcome. Thank you for the great acknowledgement. That helps keep us going.
There is already a photo of her headstone on Find A Grave memorial. I can post my photo if you want another photo. The photo on the memorial is ok.

I decided to go ahead and make the memorials. They're the Cornelius Clarke, Hervey Harold Clarke, and John G. Clarke families. They are all in the same area as Hervey H. Clarke.

No problem at all. The sun was getting low when I stopped by the cemetery yesterday. The next time I am in the area, I will try to get some better photos in better light.

You're very welcome, it was my pleasure!

I came across this reference in a Book entitled The History of Washington County, N.Y. by Crisfield Johnson published in 1878. Thought you might be interested...Supervisors of the town include Joseph Caldwell, 1787
Town Clerks Joseph Caldwell, 1798-1801
Enjoy! Ginni Combs

|Jessica Dulis||RE: Clarke family pictures|
You're very welcome. They were all in the same area, so it was very simple. I noticed that there were stones for two more sons of Hervey Clarke. One was Hervey Harold Clarke born in 1858 and his wife Jennie Mary. The other was for Ethan Clarke who died in 1870. If you would like the photos to create a memorial for them, I could email them to you. If you do,I think I should go back and look at Ethan's marker again. I can't read his age on the photo. There was also a Cornelius Clarke (b. 1823) family and a John G. Clarke (b. 1829) in the same section (section G).
