Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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,

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.

I suspect this is Sarah Cecelia Burn(e)s NORTHROP not MORTHROP

Her husband Northrop, James E. 147390199
b. Jan. 26, 1839 d. Mar. 11, 1900 Plymouth, CT
Plot: Section: Fountain Avenue, Plot: 8, Grave: is in the same plot other Northrops are in the same plot -- James father Northrop, Garrett 147390191
b. Aug. 9, 1812 d. Mar. 14, 1875
Plot: Section: Fountain Avenue, Plot: 8, Grave: 5
and James and Sarah Cecelia's daughter who died young
Northrop, Mary E 147390204
b. unknown d. Nov. 5, 1870
Plot: Section: Fountain Avenue, Plot: 8, Grave: 8

Could this be a transcription error?

Thanks, Beth Northrop

RE: Edward J Newland #147389588
Whew, I wrote to Mr Fiore at the cemetery and he insists the death date is correct. But...(sign)...according to the SSDI no one named Edward Newland died on that date; I suspect there was a transcription error at some point in time. I have requested a photo and added Aunt Emma to the request.
Thanks for your assistance.

Also wondering....
The other Bardorfs, my great uncles, George, Oscar and Harry....also buried in the plot with Catharine Bardorf and Augsut Bardorf...

are there any WIVES buried there with Oscar, Harry or George Bardorf?

If you would be willing to transfer these people to me (Catherine Bardorf, August Bardorf, Harry Bardorf, George Bardorf, Edward Bardorf and Oscar Bardorf), I would be happy to manage them.

Thank you!!!!!

Edward J Newland #147389588
This is only a question; not an edit suggestion.

I see your memorial for Edward J Newland with the date of death as July 31 1980. Is there any way that might be a typographical error? I have been trying to locate my uncle Ed's place of rest and I believe he may be in Evergreen. His date of death was July 31, 1978.

Also, please, is his wife Emma (1916-1987) in the same plot?

I look forward to your reply.
Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave!

Marga Wessel
Hello DWV,
I see you logged this grave. She is the mother of a long time homeless woman who passed away in a shed this week in Westport. (she had lived there many years, suffering from mental illness). I found that her father Paul Wessel passed in 1966, unmarried brother LUdwig in 2009. Do you know if they are all buried together. I want to make sure she is laid to rest with her family & will pass any and all info along.
Kind Regards,

Catherine Bardorf
Hello Diane-

I see you have located the grave for Catherine Bardorf at the Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven. He death date is listed by you as: 13 Jun 1909. She may be my snd Great Grandmother. Is she buried with August Bardorf? and if so, is his date of death there as well? Thank you for all you do to help us out here with finding our ancestors. So appreciated!

RE: Harold E Prisley
Hi Diane:

Yes, Mary Ann Moore (26 Jul 1931 - 11 Sep 2007) was Harold E Prisley's second wife. I don't have marriage date or any record of her children, if she had any.

Harold's first wife was Shirley Linsley (22 Dec 1927 - 28 Sep 2010), and Shirley's children by Harold were:
1. William P., b. 1948, m. Mary Anne ____, lived in North Haven CT, d. 10 Apr 1983
2. Richard
3. Diane

Harold and Shirley divorced, but she retained her married name and lived in Branford, CT. I haven't found her grave or an obit that would indicate where she was buried.

Thanks for what you do!
