Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Northeastern Ohio, but I have lived in Mass. many years. I have been doing genealogy since 1961. It is a wonderful hobby and it pleases me if I am able to help someone find family or friends they have been searching for.

My special interest is in finding and making Memorials for Civil War Veterans. Much of the information for Beverly's (MA) Central Cemetery has been provided by Dan Driscoll, friend and Volunteer Genealogist at Beverly City Hall.
Beverly Sexton has been of great help to me in the Bedford-Macedonia Cemeteries, Ohio.

Please notify me of any additions or corrections. I'll be happy to oblige.
One thing- Photos of people that I have posted are meant to be enjoyed. I would appreciate it if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites.

Thanks for the obituary for Nora. I have added this to her record.

Re Ethan Allen
Last question, was Ethan Allen a ship, or a location (Ethan Allen valley, perhaps?). I may have assumed the former in earlier correspondence. Draft Registration records him as "(ditto) (ditto) [in the] Ethan Allen", with other names such as "in the Comstock", "in the Montana", etc., coming to fore. Still he was a mariner, and was recorded with many fellow mariners. So I remain unsure unless you can tip this.

His 2nd wife was a 1st cousin to my wife's ancestors (Tufts, McJannets, Greens, Withams, of Rockport and Gloucester). I started out on this gentleman as a disinterested, but challenge-inspired, graver, who took a picture because it was a veteran grave near others of my own ancestors, and ended up with my usual genealogical interest coming to bear, at the end, anyway. :-)

Best regards again, (I always say hi to Dan D., too!) Barry

John Edward Stickney
I've separated J. Edwin (USA) from J. Edward (USN). Also his company was originally intended for Mass 17th Regt, but instead became Mass 14th Regt Inf, which became Mass 1st Hvy Art (as a company, if not a regiment?). Thus the confusion as to which regiment J. Edwin was in. I'm going to send this as a message to Tom, who maintain's J. Edwin, as well. Regards, Barry.

William Lawton Wheeler
In support of my suggested edits for William Wheeler I refer you
to "Then Ancestors and Descendants of Zephaniah and Silence
Alden Hathaway" p.260.

The suggested death date is already in your notes and you may
be quite correct treating it as a burial date with date of death

I updated what I could - Samuel and Jessie from death certificates. Thomas had nothing to be added in your e-mail. The pictures and obits look great. Thank you. Nancy

You sent an incorrect memorial # for the father link. I doubt his father is Lottie Lau!
The only Thos. Tilly Christie I could find seems too old to be his father, or the wife of his mother. Please resend.
Try using the "edit" then "link". When you enter the number you will be able to see the name right away.

Fixed Find A Grave page. Checked death certificates first. Wife's death certificate said she is buried United in Ross Township. I'm not familiar with that cemetery. Nancy

So glad that he's in great hands now :-) I was also afraid that people in Dixmont would get ignored. I'm also from northeast Ohio
