Bio Photo Hello,

Glad to meet you.

I am on call for memorial photos. I live in Weddington, NC (Union County) This site has been great, as I seem to make new friends and meet many cousins that I may have not known otherwise. My hobbies include photography and genealogy, this site has my interest on both of these. Family ancestor lines keep expanding and I keep learning history.

A brief detour about ancestors discovered.

They are family members. They are immigrants, settlers, innovators, leaders, farmers, shoemakers, plumbers, cattle ranchers, horse brokers, locomotive engineers, planners, household mothers and fathers, stone masons, iron workers, foundry owners, grocers, merchants, infants, tailors, moulders, ice merchants, engineers, builders, developers, realtors, Priests, ministers, deliverymen, cabinetmakers.

Unknowingly, I lived places ancestors had previously settled. A 3rd Great grandfather had emigrated from Bavaria, Germany to Rochester, N. Y., where I was born. Another 3rd Great grandfather emigrated from Saarland Germany to Steuben County, N.Y., near where I went to college. A 6th Great grandfather lived and died in Addison, Vermont, 35 miles line of sight from where our three children were born and raised in Brookfield, VT. The builder of that home was a veteran of the War of 1812. The home was built prior to prior to 1830. Its first owner had moved from Connecticut in 1820, leaving the County my maternal ancestors lived. My 10th Great grandfather settled Stamford prior to 1680. Even now, where I live in the Carolinas, I learn of a Grand Aunt having lived 45 miles from our present home in the Carolinas.

The education continues with military heroics. Learning a 7th Great grandfather was KIA on board on Lake Erie during the French and Indian War in 1756, seeing many ancestors with service in the Revolutionary War. Reviewing ancestors pension papers for the War of 1812. Reading service records of 2nd Great grandfathers who served in the duration of the Civil War. Hearing from a Great niece of his who has the sabre he used. The opportunity to hold a Great grandfather's military discharge orders from the Spanish American War. Opportunity to read commendations of a Father-In-Law's service in WW II during his 4 years and 4 months service from Northern Africa through Italy and finishes the campaign in Eastern Germany. Meeting a cousin whose Uncle served WW I and WWII as a Medical Doctor. Learning of the citations of ancestors' received during the Korean War. Not to ignore recent military heroes.

This is a journey. Listen to the stories they have.

Greg

I can't seem to get the requests--- how 'bout I transfer these 2 to you and you can make the changes. You've done all the work, seems only right will do so unless I hear otherwise the important thing is to get the stuff done, not who does it, eh?

Hopefully this time I will get the message in !

Thank you so much for the vital information you provided on the above family and the connection to Sophia's father. It just makes my day when a connection to other family members can be made.

Roxana Fisk Lamson 124384369
Hello Greg,

I am excited to see your posting of this gravesite. I understand that Roxana's father, (my direct ancestor)Artemus Fisk (b. 09 Jun 1798 d. 28 Feb 1872) has a large memorial with his name and the names of both his wives, Catharine Colt and Betsey Wheat, in the cemetery. It is not on Find a Grave, and I am in California so cannot find him from here. I would hope he would be buried near his daughter, who preceded him in death by two years. Do you still travel to Brookfield, or perhaps know someone who would be willing to search for his memorial? I would love to add him to my family on Find a Grave.

Thank you for any help you can give me. (1830 - same period as your family)
