Bio and Links
I am currently in the process of putting together what appears will be a 3500-page genealogy of the descendants of Benjamin Smith and Sarah Paul of Dighton, Massachusetts and Westminster, Vermont. As a side to this, I'm trying to link as much of this family as possible via Find-a-Grave.

Other interests are the descendants of John Kuhn of Livonia Township, Michigan, who came here from Prussia circa 1852; the descendants of James Cloyes and Penelope Nichols; and a few other scattered families in New England and the South.

If I have some of your family, and they are not connected to a project I am currently working on, I'm open to transferring them to folks who are serious Findagrave contributors.

While the new editing features can be useful, I have had to do some re-edits because I was not aware that the changes made by others are automatic if not acted upon by the manager of the memorial. While I genuinely appreciate additions and corrections, please make sure they are *accurate* before you edit.

Hi Cousin
Just wanted to let you know, I have been terrible about staying in touch, but way too busy with life, work and funerals! Will be in touch via email or something more personal soon. Just happened to be perusing the Find A Grave sites and thought I'd let you know I am still around!
Happy Belated Holidays,
Mary Carpenter

Thank You
Thank You for the Correction - I'm reading the pictures of stones and things don't always go well.

Zander family
I am doing some 'light' genealogy research into my paternal heritage and had come across my great grandfather and great-great grandmother's graves here on Find A Grave. I am trying to determine more about the precise location where they originally came from, ie. the town or village as I have a friend from Polland visiting there now and said she could help me if I had more information.
Any information about Daniel Zander or Minnie Kuhn Zander would be much appreciated.
Thank you,
Michelle Basnet (Zander)

Lewis Grant, #51082469
Is this gentleman's real name Ulysses S. Grant? In Lena's obituary (linked as his wife) it says her husband's name was Ulysses and I have a photo of the tombstone of Ulysses S. Grant (1882-1950) who is buried beside her. I don't want to start a new memorial if Lewis and Ulysses are the same person. Any help is appreciated.
