Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a married, retired social worker from Orange County, Vermont. I am perpetually working on my own family genealogy (Clark, Lackey, Royce branches in Vermont for now...). I am also doing a complete inventory of all graves in Strafford, Vermont. I love to take photos along the way.

My constant companions are my Mini-Dachshund Emmett and my American Bulldog Leo. We are very good at ignoring signs that say 'no dogs allowed' hehehe...

I PREFER to transfer memorials (I'd rather they are in the care of family!)So don't be shy; just ask! I also do not mind forwarding photos of better resolution (If I still have them).

I do not load many stones during nice weather. I stock up for the loooong VT winter. So if you have a request off season, I will surely look though my vaults for it!

My favorite part of grave hunting is just that, searching for and finding requests for you!

I also seek to digitally preserve the stones of our Civil War Veterans and am a contributor to http://vermontcivilwar.org It's an amazing website for those of you who are enthusiasts.

The best way to thank me for fulfilling your request would be to support the memorial. You're supporting FindaGrave directly. Its only $5 a memorial and I think that's well worth the service they provide us.

In peace! Joie from South Strafford, VT

John Blaisdell
My g-g-g-grandfather was John Blaisdell. He was born Nov. 20, 1769 and died on April 29, 1842 Strafford Vermont. He married Rebecca Kendall in 1796 Strafford VT.
Could this Memorial #114752462 be the same person?
I was unable to find a John Blaisdell with birth record in Strafford VT in 1810.
Appreciate all your help! Thank you.

Alphonso H Badger
1846-1865, he was with the 1st. Vt. Cav. Co. D. He was my 2 times great-grandmother Josephine (Josie) "Badger" Luther's brother. I'm wondering if his grave stone is a cenotaph or is he actually buried there. So young. I have another relative who is buried in a trench grave with many others, he was not a Badger, James Parsons is on another side of my family. Several of Alphonso relatives were in the Civil War are buried in Pine Hill.

Timothy Blake
I just wanted to send out a big thanks to you for finding a grave and posting a photo of the cemetery, for Lieutenant Timothy Blake in South Strafford. I never dreamed that I would ever see a photo of where Timothy ( my 5x great grandfather) was buried.


I lived in Vermont for 30 years, but it wasn't until after we moved that I began to get interested in genealogy. I have been to Strafford many times, but never knew I had an ancestor who lived there. I am assuming that Timothy's wife, Susannah Morrill Blake, is buried there also, but I cannot find a death record for her.


So, thanks again for adding Timothy to Find a Grave. Your time in researching, and sharing, these old cemeteries is very appreciated!

RE: regarding Ezra
Hi Joie, I apologize I got the Ezras backwards. I should have sent it to the one create in Nov. and not yours. I will send it to Admin to merge as the other person is inactive. Glad you caught that and again sorry. Denise.

Alvah Judd
Hi Joie;
I saw this headstone and I saw that someone else had also taken the same photo but they have listed unknown name...
I know that it is very difficult to make it out, but I was wondering if you have tried doing an impression of it. Kind of going back as kids when you take a paper and cover it and then lightly scribble/color over it and see if the name and dates come out? I am really, really curious if this really is Alvah Judd. If so, that would be awesome because I can't find any documentation one when he died and he was my 6th Great Grand Uncle. 'Thank You'.
Tammy
