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.

My principal aim is to complete cemeteries, and the following are finished:
Holy Rosary (Hadley, MA)
Plainville (Hadley, MA)
Russellville (No. Hadley, MA)

Batchelder Road (Stannard, VT)
Gill (Hartland, VT)

RE: Alpheus & Rebecca Goodwin
Hello David!

I would be happy to point you toward the source of the information for Rebecca. It is found in the Goodwin family bible. That record was saved by a Debbie Wilson from a sale on ebay several years ago.

The following link:

Will take you to the story of the bible sale. The bible pages show the birth dates, marriage dates and death dates of several members of that family. In addition, Rebecca is buried at Maple Street Cemetery Hardwick, Caledonia, Vermont. You may be able to find additional data there. I hope this helps you. If you have additional questions you can contact me again.

RE: Charles Ralph Sawyer
I've looked. Found nothing useful He certainly may have been.
The 1910 census [Charley R] says he was married '2'.

Leona Breen Mc Lary Collier
Did away with the 4. Her maiden name is listed on the Cook County, Illinois Birth Index, 1916-1935 as Mc Lary. Also on Her Death Certificate Leona's father is listed as McLary and the informant for the certificate was her daughter Bridget who has been the Town Clerk for Greensboro for considerable time. I think I will leave it as it is on the memorial until another source would be more compeling.

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,

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.
