Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a teacher and with a BA in history, genealogy became a natural outflow for learning the past. Learning about it with direct connections of ancestors have made many historical events become more personal and alive. This has even impacted my students as they do a year long project of their ancestry. My wife, son, and I live in historical New England and enjoy the ability to visit many of the United States places of historical beginnings as well as some of the oldest cemeteries. The photo you see is of my grandfather in the 1920's.

RE: Israel and Mary Standish Heald.
Hi Peter, I have put through a large number of edits. Can you provide the Find A Grave memorial numbers that you are thanking me for? I like to see them after they are posted.

Sometimes the generations get confused.

There are several pending edits for Israel Find A Grave 106036368 and his children. Israel's parents are Benjamin and Rebeckah Spaulding Heald. Benjamin's Find A Grave is 96139715.

In the 1850 Census, Jane, not Mary, is living with Israel and has five children ranging from 7-19 years old. In all, they had 12 children. In the 1870 census, she is living with her younger sister Eunice Russell. Five years later, JANE died (1875) so she predeceased her husband and they MAY not have been living together. JANE died in Washington DC. So far, I cannot find where JANE is buried. A well researched book on the Standish family might have this noted.

RE: Robert N Rast
I've looked for that headstone on several trips. Today there was a corner peeking thru the dead grass. Unfortunately I didn't have any water or a brush with me to wipe it off. I've taken pictures so I can locate it on my next trip and I will try to get a better picture. Totally unprepared today and found several buried headstones. Go figure.

RE: Bernice Currier Kennedy Weccott
Hi! Sorry, I have no clue. I am not too knowledgeable on the Currier side of my family. That does seem a bit odd, though, I can't imagine why she'd prefer to be buried alone.

RE: Margaret Fowler
Peter: I replied a little too quickly. Although the memorial you noted for Christopher Osgood was a "burial unknown" and linked to another like it for Margery, they were created by Linda Mac, of whose work I am a fan. I will take a closer look at what she did and the book your referenced in another message. Don't be surprised if we end up just deleting our memorials for this couple.

PS: I am also a descendant (as shown in our flower notes).

RE: Margaret Fowler
Peter: The second memorial you show is a "burial unknown", which I didn't see. It shouldn't be in Find A Grave, per the guidelines. However, some of the info may be good. I will research further.
