Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired American Baptist clergyman having served as pastor of First Baptist, Bristol VT, Assoc. Executive Minister of the VT Baptist State Convention, and pastor of First Baptist, St. Albans VT. I am retired from the U. S. Naval Reserve (Chaplain Corps). Educated at Forestdale Graded School (Brandon VT), Bristol High School-1952 (Bristol VT), Bethel College-1959 and Bethel Theological Seminary-1963 (St. Paul MN).

When I married my wife from Starksboro VT in 1955, I found she was related to most of the early settlers: Bidwell, Brooks, Brown, Clifford, Hanson, Hill, Mason, Smith, Stokes, and Thompson.

My mother was a Dean from Monkton VT so I have many early ancestors in that town: Dean, Follett, French, Smith, and Stilson.

My father's Burbank ancestors came from Chelsea, Sharon and Tunbridge VT and earlier from Millbury and Rowley MA with the many usual collateral lines.

William Rogers
Unfortunately I don't have any other information about William Rogers. You might be able to verify if this is your William Rogers through the military information on the headstone.

Thanks for the update and the link. I've added them to his memorial. DO you live in the area. If so I can put in a request for a photo and you can fill it, if you do requests.

Thank you for adding her photo. However, per Find A Grave guidelines scanned obituaries are not allowed (See information under "Help with Find A Grave - Creating/Editing memorials. Would you be kind enough to remove the "obituary photo". I have extracted information from her obituary -removing names of living individuals - & added it to her memorial page.

Thank you for your understanding and all you do for Find A Grave

Best regards

Thank You for the additional info on Edmund Edwards. Could you please provide source info for his parental links? The Vermont/Iowa connection seems unusual enough for me to ask. Thanks! Jim

RE: Marjorie Benedict
Hi John,

Happy Easter! Thanks for contacting Alan and getting it all sorted out.

I only add memorials with no death dates up to 1930's because that is what Find a Grave allows. I believe anything over the year 1933 is against the rules.

Hi John,

Can you add the obituary and picture of Marjorie Benedict to my memorial of her #134284019.

Alan's memorial is a duplicate of mine which I created last year.

RE: Sarah Belle Burbank Denno
I found out why Edward (#128710534) is buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery. He and Sarah Belle had a daughter named Helen who died when she was 0 years old (perhaps stillborn?). Helen is buried in Oak Ridge. I sent edits for Helen, but the creator of the memorial,(SG)'s 'account is disabled' per the screen I got twice, so I added a note in the flower section and sent the edits for birth and death. Not sure what that means? I've never seen it before.
I also found out that Edward and "Belle" had a son named Estel S Denno who was born 3/29/1906 and married Bernadine White in Steuben County, Indiana in 1928. I couldn't find him or Bernadine in F.A.G. in either MI or IN.
Thank you for the information!
It's been a pleasure!

RE: Sarah Bell Burbank Denno
A brief look at Saginaw's obituary index and City of Saginaw Cemetery records (which are both online for Saginaw residents to access)shows no Edward F Denno. Each of the 3 children, plus Sarah, are buried in single graves as opposed to a cemetery family plot, so I'm thinking he's either 1) buried in a cemetery on the outskirts of Saginaw(perhaps with a newer wife?) which is not City of Saginaw owned, 2) he died before the late 1800's, so the Saginaw Obit Index doesn't list him, or 3)he moved away after his wife died.
I am briefly checking my email this morning before we leave town to go out of state for a few weeks, so I will follow up with the children and Sarah at the local library geneology dept. when I return. Hubby's waiting impatiently as I type. Thanks again for the info.!
Are you related? I am not. If you would like, I can transfer the memorials to your care. I will have access while we're traveling.
