Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since the late '70s, when a cousin showed me a 1901 genealogy, "The Descendants of William Wood" in which my late grandmother was mentioned. I like this site and have made an effort to try to locate all the ancestor graves I can. I'm always available to take grave photos in the Twin City area, that is, when they're not under two feet of snow.

Feel free to contact me with additional information or corrections. I will gladly transfer any memorial that I created that is your direct family member and not mine. You may use any pictures I add to memorials.

If I send you a biography or information about any memorial that you manage and you are no longer interested in maintaining that memorial, I will be glad to accept a transfer.

Mary (Cutler) Dutton (88064100)
Hi, and thank you for all you contribute to findagrave. The memorial you manage for Mary (Cutler) Dutton (88064100) states that “Joseph died in January, 1734, Mary on March 26, 1744, both are buried in the Second Cemetery in East Haddam.” Could you please share with me or point me to the basis for that statement? I have been unable to find any information on Mary’s or Joseph’s final disposition. I made a photo request, but contributor Irma (#46927625) reported that (a) she contacted the cemetery office and they have no record of Mary Dutton and (b) there was no gravestone note in the Hale transcriptions of 1934. I’d appreciate anything you can share. Thanks very much. Greenie

RE: Elizabeth Hazard
Sorry, I don't have a death date for her, but I believe it may have been before 1680. That's the date for her father's will and her's is the only name not mentioned as receiving anything.

RE: Elizabeth Hazard
Thank you for the source references.
Also, the death date you have for her is for her daughter Mary Babcock.

Hello,

I'm wondering where you found the info for Elizabeth Hazard that she married a second time.

RE: Charles Remmel and Eugenia Thackston
Thanks Ken. They aren't my ancestors either but we have been working on that cemetery and the many many requests for photos. You can transfer them if you want since we live in the area but if you prefer to keep them then do so.

Find A Grave Memorial# 117544419
Thanks for your work on Find-a-grave. Concerning Find A Grave Memorial# 117544419 for John Strutt I suspect there is a typo with the will date and the death date. The site says death was August 1591 but the will is dated April 19, 1591 with burial April 22, 1591. Can you determine which month is correct?

RE: 131555676
Put these co ordinances in:
Latitude 41.544430
Longitude -71.537510

That should fix your map.

Did you go to the RI website I sent you? That's how I did my map.

RE: Elizabeth Jeffries Wilson
Looks fine, but I'm afraid your map shows the cemetery out in the ocean. Don't feel bad, I did the same thing when I did mine. I compared my map with theirs to place my marker. I hate GPS. Go to rhode island historical cemetery database, search by cemetery number, yours is EX120, click on details and a map is on the bottom of the page. You can then move your marker to match. Let me know if you get it. If not we'll figure out a different way to get it right. OK?

This cemetery isn't recorded on Find A Grave, I checked.
Also, if you could let Nareen, et al know so she can add John Sr.
