I enjoy genealogy and this is how I came about this website. I have received pictures from the 1600's to the early 1900's. I was overjoyed. I wanted to share and give someone else the same pleasure. I am a descent of Samuel Deacon Chapin of Springfield, Ma. Also, connected to the Mayflower. What a joy to see how our wonderful country was founded from family research. I am also working on our family tree of First Families of Levi Greene/Burch/Mayflower Robinson/Kellogg/Hathaway-Oregon Trail/Failing (Palatine Settlers) also first families and Mussina. If you wish for me to transfer a memorial over please just let me know.
thanks for being a volunteer for find-a-grave. there is an error in the above memorial as follows.there are 2 cemeteries in scotland conn. called "old scotland cemetery".one is called just "old scotland cemetery" which is included in the "hale collection of conn.cemetery inscriptions"and the 2nd is "old scotland cemetery north" which is not included in the"hale collection". you have eliel robinson my 3rd great-grandfather and his wife roxanna buried in the "old scotland cemetery north" when in fact they are buried in the "old scotland cemetery" according to the "hale collection". additional or correcting information is that eliel was born 24 sept.1768.which would make his age at death in 1823 as @55 yrs.not 50 yrs.that could be a typo in the "hale collection".based on her age at death 68yrs on 24 dec. 1843 her year of birth is @1775.her maiden name was roxanna spafford and they were marr. @1792. this additional info was obtained from the robinson genealogy published by the robinson family society and my own research.
Transfer completed. I found the info at rootsweb,(http://userdb.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cemeteries/cgi-bin/cemetery.cgi?id=217777&database=Cemetery%20Records&return_to=http://userdb.rootsweb.com/cemeteries/&submitter_id=) it was as follows:
Name: Tanner, Thankful Born: 17 Feb 1752 Died or Buried: 18 Apr 1837 Age: 85y Buried: Rose #1 County/State: Rensselaer, NY Notes: Born Exeter, Rhode Island town: Stephentown husband: 1.Wiat Rose2.Daniel Brown mother: Deliverance Briggs Tanner father: William Tanner
I am in the middle of the country, so would have no knowledge if grave were moved.
RE: Wrong Picture-Mussina I put the photo of the large plot marker up with the small one so if someone goes looking for the grave, they can't miss that huge thing! That cemetery has over 60,000 burials in it!
