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.

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.

I have concentrated on the following cemeteries, working systematically:
Holy Rosary (Hadley, MA)
Plainville (Hadley, MA)
Russellville (No. Hadley, MA)

Batchelder Road (Stannard, VT)
East Craftsbury (E. Craftsbury, VT)
Felchville (Reading, VT)

Greensboro Village (Greensboro, VT)

RE: Permilia Atherton
Thanks for the correction. Who knew that there would be more than one Permelia Atherton? I did find a marriage record for "Melly" Atherton and Daniel Tinkham. According to this index, they married 19 Feb 1815 in Pomfret. Daniel was my 5th gr uncle. Thanks,

RE: Frank Brown
David, Thanks for transferring Frank. He was divorced. His spouse was buried in Calvary Cemetery in Northfield, Washington County, Vermont. Thanks for the offer anyway. I appreciate all you do.

RE: Frederick Aiken bio/Solomon Rev
Your welcome, I hate it when someone famous is OWNED by Find A Grave and they don't allow the family to be linked... Tis reason I sent you something..

Elisha Fuller info
Hello - earlier I left information on my Great Great Great grandfather, Elisha Fuller who was married to Phebe Hoar Fuller and had sons Peter, Joshua, Elisha, Norman, Thomas and Charles.

I did not know if this is where I should give you additional proof of the information I provided earlier, and since the send message said that this information would be public I thought I would just send this initial contact and then find out from you how I should send the detailed information to you.

RE: Henry & David Overstreet
Hi David!

The only thing I know about the Overstreets, I gleaned from Stephanie (Overstreet) Perok's obit. I created her memorial today, and in the process found your entry for Henry L., her father (36839141) in Saint Brigids. Stephanie is buried there, as is her Mother, Monica, so I presume that's why she's interred there.

If you check Daily Hampshire Gazette obits for 9/14, you'll find Stephanie's obit.

RE: William J & Rita M. Edsall
Thank you, David, I fixed it. I didn't even notice that. I don't know how that info got there as someone else created the memorial. Robert was my Uncle Bob.

RE: Daniel and Susan Worcester
David, any Worcesters buried there are probably my relatives.
