Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestors settled in Bergen and Sussex counties, New Jersey, in the 17th and 18th centuries, where some descendants have remained to the present day. I grew up in Cambridge and Dedham, MA with one foot in Vermont. Until recently I lived in Amherst, MA, where my graving was concentrated in Hampshire and Franklin counties in the Connecticut river valley. I have recently moved to Woodstock, VT, with part of the summers in Greensboro, VT, so my graving will now be concentrated in Windsor, Orleans and Caledonia counties.

I only create relationship links when there is clear evidence of a relationship, such as an inscription or other available information. Once bitten, twice shy. So, help me bring family members together if you can. I welcome your corrections, as well as any additional information you can provide - but PLEASE INDICATE YOUR SOURCE. I am happy to transfer memorials if you are related. You are welcome to use any of my photos - I'd appreciate a credit. Thank you.

Family names of interest to me: Edsall, Tileston, Dunham, Cranford, Barton, DeKay, Foote, Lawrence, Linn, Morse, Noyes, Seeley, Tiffany, Woodhull.

I've used Find-a-Grave extensively in my own researches around the country, and benefitted greatly from it. My contributions to the website are a way of saying thank you.

Thank you for the date correction. I extrapolated a little more data from his obit but cannot, per guidelines, copy it. They've also asked us to stop including "surviving" (i.e., living) family members. Thus, I've tried to include in the format I used. Again, thank you.

Henry Packard - Goshen Center.
I moved the photo over to the memorial you created. The memorial I created was part of a large batch (400+) uploaded as a spreadsheet. Not too sure how it went through, usually Find A Grave will filter out what is already there. Jim

RE: Family Link Request Oel Billings 59724170
Thanks ever so much for linking Oel to John and Olive. The work you do is so important. I think that perhaps is one of the most important urls on the internet, although not recognized as such.
Many sincere thanks,
Mindy Henningson Wroten

RE: Edward Hartland Hill
I took this picture several years ago but if I remember right this was the only Edward hill I found in this cemetery. I have removed the picture from that memorial.

Thank You
I spent some time yesterday photographing stones in 3 Woodstock Cemeteries, a great many of them you created the memorials for. I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you do in creating the memorials. Your work is probably not appreciated enough by others!

Memorial#44662416 Martin Hubbard
Mr. Edsall,
Thank you very much for adding the information to Martin S. Hubbard's memorial.

Hubbard memorial#44662416
Mr. Edsell,

The headstone for "unknown Hubbard" at the North Sunderland MA Cemetery, could very well mark the grave of 23 y/o Pvt. Martin S. Hubbard who was killed at Spottsylvania on 12 MAY 1864.
In a 20 MAY 1864 edition of the Springfield newspaper, it was written that Martin was in the 37th Mass. Regiment, Co. F. , and was killed on the 12th of MAY.
In Sunderland census listings previous to his death, Martin was listed in the household of David Hubbard, who was the son of Moses. It would appear that this Martin was born about 1841.
