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.
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: 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: 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?
Memorial# 131555676 Elizabeth Jeffries Sweet Wilson, her husband John and their son John are recorded buried in the Sweet-Tripp Lot in Exeter, Washington, RI.

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.
