Bio and Links
Please use the Edit tab located at the top right of the memorial to let me know of any corrections/additions to my listings so that I may make the updates.

I spend a lot of time increasing the volume and accuracy of biographical information and links even for unrelated families.

I began studying my family history in 1976 and have been at it ever since. I love searching for members of my family tree and learning all I can about their lives.

Personal focus of research on:

The Lyman Family in America: the Ancestors & Descendants of Richard Lyman & Sarah Osborne from High Ongar, England, 1631.

Joseph Westcott Hamilton
Do you have any more information about this individual.

Specifically I am wondering where you may have found the middle name and the exact date of birth. I have been researching Joseph for sometime, but have not come across a primary source to ever confirm this information.

However, I do have pictures of the gravestone and other Hamilton gravestones from the same cemetery. Joseph's Gravestone had unfortunately cracked in half from age.

Jerusha Newcomb Brewster
Oops, sorry, I had requested information on the grave marker of my ancestor but mistakenly referred to her as Jerusha Newcomb Bradford. It should have been Jerusha Newcomb Brewster. Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused.

Jerusha Newcomb Bradford
Thank you for all the work you have done. Would you be able to tell me what the lower part of the inscription says on the grave marker of Jerusha Newcomb Bradford, buried in Mountani View Cemetery, New Concord, Columbia County, New York. It is several lines long and I seem to be able to read only a few of the words, and might start with the word "We...." I think there is a phrase toward the end, "Triumphant spring...." Thank you for your help.

You requested pictures of some members of this family and I have entered them. I also took a picture of Donald Arnt 1906-1943. If you are interested, please, just make a request. I did not find Ella Rex but will talk to the office for help.

#11467847 Dr. Elijah Lyman
I am seeking information on Elijah and Esther Lyman's daughter, Lucy. Lucy and Dr. John Waldo are my husband's great, great, great grandparents. What happened to Lucy after Dr. John died? Where did she die and where is she buried? Am I right, John and Lucy's son, Joseph, lived with his grandmother Esther? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
