Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family history since about 2004, but have more recently begun using Find A Grave. I am excited by the possibilities Find A Grave offers for sharing information and making new discoveries. Surnames I am working on in particular are Ripke, Nehring, Anderson, Hubbard, Brewer, Brown, Wright, Scharff, Rahn, Carter, Robbins and Johnson.

I have documented several Hawaiian cemeteries while vacationing. I have no further information on any of those memorials. I am happy to add information or transfer memorials to you, if you are related.

RE: Edward Johnson family in Chester, VT
Well, I'm glad you cleared that up for me. I thought I was going crazy.

RE: Edward Johnson family in Chester, VT
OK. I'm confused now. There's a memorial for a Capt. Hezekiah Johnson buried in Vermont and his son Hezekiah Johnson buried in Vermont. On the son's memorial he's married to Ruth Bowker. But I have a different father for him.

RE: Edward Johnson family in Chester, VT
I don't have that much information. His siblings were Hezekiah Johnson, born in 1769 in Chester, VT. He died in 1810 in Chester.
His sister Sarah Johnson was born in 1770 in Chester and died 7 May 1802 in Chester.
His sister Dinah Johnson was born in 1772 in Chester and died 9 June 1845 in Chester.

Phebe Johnson was born in 1755 and died in 1813 in Chester.

Ruth Bowker and Hezekiah were married 5 Nov 1789 in Chester. She was born 9 Feb 1765 in Hopkinton, MA and died 23 April 1812 in Chester.

RE: Brewer memorials at the Milford Cemeteryin Otsego, NY
We gladly processed the edits and added the bio, but may we also offer transfer of any or all of the Brewers and kin to you? Then you can add more as you see fit, and delete (or mark as cenotaph) whatever listings make sense with your research. Just let us know the numbers... These are not "in our tree".
