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.

Harry and Blanche Munsey Transfers
Dear David, Thank-you for the Munsey transfers. It is possible Harry and Blanche are buried in Maine. I'm not sure what to do, your memorial is older but the other is most likely correct. I'm trying to confirm Maine burial. Warmly, Joni

Link to parents Page?
Richard Merle Cook names his parents on his memorial page 97599648 in the Riverside Vermont Cemetery. His parents are James Edwin Cook and Lily G Cook. Their pages list three children, but Richard is the fourth. Just FYI.

Thank you so much for these memorial pages. I'm doing research and the information has been very helpful. You do a wonderful job!

RE: Albert & Mabel Lumley memorials
Hi, David --

Thank you for your note and for creating the Lumley memorial. Since the Lumleys are my in-laws, I'm embarrassed I didn't find and sponsor this page sooner... Would you be willing to transfer the page to me?

RE: Francis Hart

That is very interesting info. The police department inscribed "Amherst" on his memorial as place of death. I suppose they just wanted to connect him back to the town further. Or maybe he suffered a sudden heart attack or something in Amherst, and was taken to Cooley Dickinson in Northampton. Thanks for acknowledging the bio I wrote. I will try to get over to the cemetery and take a photo of his actual grave if I have enough time.

RE: Nellie O'Brien
She is my great aunt. The sister of my grandmother. This information comes from family history...through my father's genealogy records. My grandparents were born in Ireland, we still have a family farm there, in fact 2! the Leen and the O'Brien farms in Tralee, County Kerry. She came to this country as a servant (has did my grandmother) in 1902, via steerage class. She worked in NY for several families sending any extra money back to bring over my grandmother and her other siblings. My father and I have worked together on his side of the family because a lot of births, marriages and deaths are difficult to find in Ireland. He traveled to Ireland several times in his later life to gather information from living relatives....
I plan on building a memorial for his family, they are buried in Calvary Cemetery in Queens...all together. On top of each other in fact. As is my mother's family, who are located in Cedar Grove, Flushing.
I would very interested in caring for my Irish relatives if you find in your heart to transfer her to me, I would be so grateful.
