My grandfather instilled my love of family history in 1979. While visiting during Christmas break, he opened a chest and showed me pictures, letters, diaries and family group sheets he had been compiling for more than 40 years. I am overwhelmed thinking of the many hours he spent writing letters and visiting town halls and cemeteries searching for his family members. I am honored to continue his work. Most of my ancestors lived in New England. Thanks to this site, I have found distant cousins across the country. I am grateful to the contributors to this site who have given me the opportunity to see my relative's gravesites. Please feel free to contact me if we have a family connection.

RE: Jacob Towne The memorial I have was made by someone else much later than the other memorial you mentioned. That means the memorial that I have is a duplicate. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I will attempt to delete the memorial that I have.
RE: Greenlee Thomas Garrett Hi Cynthia, Yes, I am related to Greenlee Thomas Garrett. He's my third great grandfather. I have been unable to find any death or burial information on his parents. The last information I can locate on them is the 1870 Monroe Co. AR census. By the 1880 census, G.C. & Sallies youngest daughters were listed in the household of their brother, Greenlee. Will be happy to share any information I have. Looking forward to hearing from you.
