I love exploring cemeteries and getting a sense of their history. I'm located on the shoreline of New Haven County in Connecticut.
Photo requests: Help me to help you! Include any cemetery contact and plot/location information on your photo requests.
SACs: Please do not ask me to link any memorials to a "Burial Unknown". This is a grave registration site, and genealogy is better pursued on other sites.
Previous projects: transcribed and uploaded records from the New Haven (CT) Jewish Cemetery Database into the following cemeteries on FAG: Adas Israel, Beth Israel/Orchard St. Shul, Columbus Lodge/Temple Beth Shalom, Mt. Sinai Memorial Park, United Israel, Warshaver Relief/Ahavas Shalom/Young Israel, Warshaver Relief/Young Israel, Congregation B'nai Jacob, Congregation Mishkan Israel, B'nai Jacob Memorial Park, all in New Haven, CT. I've also transcribed and uploaded to all of the Jewish cemeteries in East Haven, CT.
Last project: Evergreen Cemetery, New Haven, CT, where my parents are buried. Added dates, name corrections, and plot information for the more than 6,000 records listed on FAG, completed in two months. Also added 40,000+ records to FAG from Evergreen's on-line database, evergreencem.org.
Current project: helping to fulfill photo requests and update plot information for Grove Street Cemetery, New Haven, CT.
Transfers: If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please submit a SAC with your relationship to the deceased, which must be within FAG guidelines. Do not leave a message here.
George W. Crawford I have been searching for the gravesite information and a picture of his headstone for some time now. Thanks to you I have half of the info. I already submitted a photo request. I wanted to let you know that Crawford should probably be on the "Famous/Notable Burials" list of Evergreen Cemetery. He was a very well known "negro" lawyer in his day in New Haven. He was a prolific author; early member of the Niagara Movement, a predecessor organization of the NAACP; and a director of the NAACP for 20 plus years. He was the lawyer that won the famous Waterbury case. I also wanted to give you his birth date information--October 21, 1877. The middle initial of "W" stands for "Williamson"
Elizabeth Foret Bunnell Hi Diane, I recently filled photo requests for an Elizabeth (Forte) Paremlee and her infant daughter Elizabeth Parmelee (memorials # 11466661 and #11466668) at Evergreen Cemetery. The requestor had the right names as verified by the listing on the tombstone. It is located on Path B Plot 64. The name on the front of the tombstone is Bunnell and there are a bunch of Bunnells buried in that plot along with three Fortes and the Parmelee mother and daughter. The cemetery records have iElizabeth (Forte) Parmelee incorrectly listed as Elizabeth Forte Bunnell and the one listed in the cemetery records is the infant who died on 3/5/1870, days after her birth. Elizabeth Forte Parmelee died on 2/18/1870, probably giving birth to her daughter or shortly after. Elizabeth Forte was the wife of John Parmelee. You can verify this information by checking the photo of the tombstone. I will send a note to Dale at Evergreen - don't know if they can fix the records or not but I will let him know. The memorial on find a grave (#147369306) is incorrect - there is no such person - so I am writing to ask you to delete it. Thanks, Bob
Elizabeth C. Olds (147390724) There was a lot of confusion concerning Elizabeth C. Olds (147390724). But I have recently discovered that there were two of them, living relatively close to one another. This Elizabeth C. Olds (147390724) is NOT married to Charles B. Olds. Mary Miller is not her Daughter. She WAS married to Henry H. Olds and born in Ireland as far as I can find. The other Elizabeth Olds is still at large, hopefully with a headstone to be found soon. Thanks!! - Kerry
Duplicate Posting at St. Mary's Cemetery I don't mind deleting my memorial but before I do I should mention that the SSDI shows his date of birth as 11/21/1915, not 11/28/1916, which is shown on the other memorial.
RE: #160122045 Mary Helen Mae Thank you. At first I did not find any memorial for either and now I am struggling to fix this. Would you please tell me what cemetery that Mary (the mother of Mother Angelica) belongs in. Thank you so much. I only met to privately speak with Mother Angelica once, but her help to me was immeasurable so as a long time faind a grave volunteer, naturally I wanted to honor her and her family. I would appreciate all the help anyone can offer, to make this perfect. Thank you
Leake's and Langley's Thank you for all the work you did on the Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven. I would like photos of both family groups and will send you all the details shortly. Your transcriptions have helped fill gaps....CT death records do not (in a couple of cases) list the deaths. (Brad Langley)
