I'm sorry, but I will not link memorials to memorials with unknown burials.

I'm looking for the parents of Henry Aldrich who lost his life in battle at Antietam at Sharpsburg, Washington County, Maryland on September 17, 1862.

Mr. Aldrich entered the service from Bristol, Connecticut where he lived with his wife, Sarah (Peck) Aldrich and their three young children. He was 41 years old and working at the Bristol Clock Company when he enlisted on July 24, 1862. He was mustered into Company K of the 16th Connecticut Infantry on August 24, 1862, and was killed just 24 days later.

Mr. Aldrich is believed to have been born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1821. He has been mistaken for Henry Alanson Aldrich who died in Worcester County, Massachusetts in 1906.

Henry Aldrich's oldest son, John W. Aldrich also served in the Civil War, and I'm trying to learn who his mother was.

Thank you in advance for any advice or help you may have to offer.

It is hard to determine which spelling of the Merrithew/Merithew is correct. It appears that some of them used a single R while others used a double R. My wife's mother was a Merrithew, daughter of Miles Readen Merrithew who was the son of William Leonard Merrithew.

RE: Queens Park - Merithew / Reid
Hi Steve,

You are welcome. I posted Bernard and Jane Merithew's daughter Marian Frances (Merithew) and her husband Robert Reid marker photo as well. The Reids are buried right next to Marian's parents in Queen's Park Cemetery at Calgary, Alberta.

RE: Rural Cemetery photos
Hello Steve,
You're welcome. The sun was against me so I'll re-shoot them the next time I'm there in the morning.
I'm local to Rural so I often redo photos that I feel could be better with the sun at a different angle.

RE: Mary Corning
Your very welcome Steve. It was my pleasure. Took several different angles and a photo of her husbands stone. If you want them I will be very happy to forward them, just let me know to where.

RE: Mary Corning
Hello Steven. I went back to the cemetery again today and did an extensive search for Mary's and many other graves. Was about to give up when I saw a tipped over grave covered in brush and newly mowed grass, sure enough it was Mary's. Cant believe other than fallen over, it was in pristine condition. Unbelievable. Feel great finding it. Unfortunately, it was the only grave I found out of the ten I was searching for, but i'll take whatever I can find. Best wishes..

Stephen, I found a Mary Corning headstone in Fort Ann cemetery but death date doesn't match. Are you sure of the date listed on her memorial site.

Ann Wheeler Shelton #75918342
I know you are aware of the other memorial for Ann (#28920393) and am wondering if the photo of her actual tombstone from that memorial could be added to this one? I added her birth year of 1717 to your memorial. The other one had the wrong death year, even though the tombstone says 1793 (if one enlarges it enough to read it). With two different memorials for Ann both linking her to her father and husband, it looks like she is her own sister. I have the same situation going on with one of my other memorials.
