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)
Gill (Hartland, VT)
Greensboro Village (Greensboro, VT)
Hardwick Center (Hardwick, VT)
Lincoln Noyes (Greensboro, VT)
Maple Street (Hardwick, VT)
Methodist (Barnard, VT)
Mitchell (Greensboro, VT)
Pinehurst (So. Ryegate, VT)
Prosper (Woodstock, VT)
Randall (Woodstock, VT)
River Street (Woodstock, VT)
St. John of the Cross (Albany, VT)
South Albany (So. Albany, VT)
Taftsville Burying Ground (Taftsville, VT)

Re: Adamski
Great! Thanks!

Indeed, the weather has finally turned fair. Time for me to get back out into the local cemeteries with my camera.

RE: Margaret Harlow
I don't have anything indicating she married a "Howard" I also don't have anything other than a last name to "Goodhue". I don't have any idea why I would have asked you to change the information, since I had little to no information to go on. Sorry for your trouble. Rick

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..
