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.

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)

Thanks for the transfer. If you know any GIFFIN or GIFFEN, I'm trying to find family members for a DNA project.

Moses Pingrey
Dear Mr. Edsall,

Will you please share whatever information you have that conflicts with my information concerning Moses Pingrey.

Nathaniel and Anna (Robbins) Pingrey had a son, Moses Pingrey, b. 1802 [not 1862 as the birth record is mis-transcribed!] in Mount Holly, Rutland, VT.

I believe this is the same Moses Pingrey, age 48, who appears in the 1850 census in Barnard, VT, with wife Louisa.

If this is incorrect, then please let me know whom you understand the parents of "your" Moses Pingrey to be so that I can correct my data.

Thank you,

Janet Muff

RE: Stephen & Warren Pierce
Yes you should be able to update any information from that one on to yours first. Then give Find A Grave all the information including memorial numbers asking them to delete the inactive member duplicate memorial number. The duplicate just needs to be deleted after the information is transferred.

Or Find A Grave might just transfer the inactive memorial to you so you can delete it after you transfer all the information

Good luck!!

RE: Eddie Pope Smith
At this point all I know is that he died in Florida. I also suspect that all his siblings listed are not buried there either, however since I have no relationship to the siblings I have not researched them.

Hi Dave - I found two more children! WOW! I couldn't believe it!! Would you be so kind as to transfer both of these children to me? I would really appreciate it. And thank you for making memorials for them - if you hadn't, I would never have known they existed. I am going to call that cemetery next week to see if the other family members are buried there as well. Thanks again!

Hi Dave, I just wanted to say thank you for putting the memorial up for Martha Louisa Green, 1-yr. old dtr of my Dad's great grandparents. Would you be so kind as to transfer that one to me?
