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, I MUST INSIST THAT YOU INDICATE YOUR SOURCE, OR IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED - NO EXCEPTIONS. After all, the memorial goes out over my name!

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.

You are welcome to use any of my photos, and please add an appropriate credit.

RE: Elam & Mary Cutter
Elam Cutter and Mary Alma Gaylord Cutter are ancestors of my wife, through their son Elam Bowman Cutter. I would be pleased if you transferred management to me. Thank you.

Susan Perkins Marsh, Memorial# 89749925

I have double checked the narrative below (other peoples research on and found 2 errors.

1.) Susan and Josiah Lyndon Arnold had one child not two.

2.) There was an alternate death date in some documents of 3 Jan but it appears 31 is the correct one and is the one on the gravestone.

Many thanks and looking forward to your thoughts and any information you can add or correct.

Susan Perkins Marsh, Memorial# 89749925

What information do you have contrary to this. I have her tree on as follows:

When Susan Perkins was born on October 9, 1776, in Plainfield, Connecticut, her father, Elisha, was 35 and her mother, Sarah, was 32. She married Josiah Lyndon Arnold and they had two children together. She then married Charles Marsh and they had four children together between 1799 and 1809. She died on January 3, 1853, in Woodstock, Connecticut, having lived a long life of 76 years.

I am interested in her father, Dr. Elisha Perkins, and would like to get all his children linked to him. Other than that I do not have a dog in this hunt. I just send information when I find it.

I can send links to records if that is what you want me to do.

I am sending edits of everything I have and if you could write me about contrary information you have, I would appreciate it.

Antonio Byron
This memorial is listed twice.

Antonio Byron 39306427

Tony Byron 39306384.

Also submitted a correction for the last name Byron. Although Antonio used the Byron spelling, he was actually born with the name spelled Biron. I have listed his parents (Georges Biron 148985007 and Olivine Gagnon 14895007.

Would you transfer his memorial to me so that I may add him to the rest of the family. Thank you

I would like to inform you that there is a duplicate memorial in your contribution. May I request to remove one of the memorials, so that viewers will not be confused?

These are the duplicate memorials: and

PS Dunhams
Dad always talked about 'the Dunham boys..' from up there during his childhood.

He and his brother (CB Camp) always used to scratch his head and say 'I know we're related, but I sure don't quite remember HOW.' Once I did the family history, I'd remind him (and his brother) - but sure enough, the next time, they'd say the same thing. It was a fun family piece of humor...

SMILES. Love family history.

RE: Lovinia Dunham & Martha Perkins
David! How very nice to hear that we are (albeit distantly) related.

Those six degrees of separation seem to be a real truth! It's lovely to be able to work with you on 'linking' up my Abbott/Ellis/Dunham relatives. My Dad spent his summers in Barnard as a child; his brother lived in Woodstock as you know... and his brother's stepsons still do.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate all the work you do. It's a true legacy, David. Many more than I so value your hard work. You've found so many of 'my own' for me.

Warm regards. Hope you're enjoying your summer.
