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: Eliza Cram memorial 112226428
Thanks, Yes too many of them died a long ways from home. A couple of my lines lost several sons per family and New England was a long way from mid eastern/Appalachia country; especially when one umpteenth gr grandmother wrote that those 'southerners' referring to New Yorkers ate funny things.

RE: Eliza Cram memorial 112226428
Thanks for doing the memorial David. I like the bio. It's always nice to find some history about a person besides name and dates. I think you mean 1864 rather than 1964 however (which was a very good year - I graduated from HS :) ).

Eliza Cram memorial 112226428
Hi David,
Is it possible you could to do a memorial for Eliza'a husband Eliphlet B. Cram? You posted the picture of Eliza's headstone, which tells about her husband's death in the battle of Winchester, VA. Eliphlet was born ca 1830 in NH. I don't really know how to do a memorial for a person where their grave isn't known, but a marker remembering them is in their home state. I think it is sort of sad, that so many that died in the Civil War have been forgotten in unmarked graves, leaving behind wives and children. Eliphlet left behind a 2 year old daughter Elizabeth #(138671013).
Thanks
Dianne

RE: Foster Thayer

Hi David,

I wish I knew for sure. This remains a mystery that I have not been able to find a solid answer for.

Thank you for finding the graves of Fred's parents. I have them on my tree but didn't realize that someone had posted his parents.
Fred was my Uncle and unfortunately I'm old enough to remember him. lol
Thanks again,
Jane
