|Bio and Links|
My husband and I have been researching our family history since 1980 and learn something new every day. It is not easy and there's a lot of misinformation out there. Be sure of your records; get several verifications and have fun. Most of all be courteous - most of the people you will meet are volunteers and will go out of their way to help you.|
Most of the entries are ancesters, close friends of my Mom and Dad or members of our parish family. I am happy to add bios, connect to other family members or assist with family lines.
I have no objection to use of pictures I have added.

You're very welcome - anytime.
I was walking in the Elmwood Hill Cemetery tonight and noticed that the stone for this family had been carved with a new date for Ruth Ogden. I will add a photo onto all of the memorials. Also, it appears the those two metal military ornaments seen in my old photos are now gone. I hope the family has them and they did not get stolen. Take care!

Gale, by all means use whatever photos I have submitted. No credit is necessary. I'm really happy that the photos I've provided are helping others in their quest to learn about their past.
Thank you for your compliment as well.

Thanks for the reply. I'm no relation to the Platts. They were a very interesting and important family. I'll send to your email account an article I've written up on Jeremiah Platt I hope to have published in the local paper, The Manhattan Mercury. The society is working its way through the various possibilities presented to us on the Platt House. It's owned by the county and they may be selling it, an announcement that created quite a controversy locally and lots of publicity. Looks like everything will work out though to preserve this historic structure and our continued occupancy.

Thanks much for linking Martha Platt Cottrell to her parents. All the siblings are now linked up with the exception of an infant.
I am the president of the Riley County Genealogical Society (Manhattan, Ks.) that is housed in the Platt house built by Marth'a brother, Jeremiah, in 1871. I don't know if you are local or in the region but if you haven't visit the Platt House at 2005 Claflin Road. I more than assume you are related to the Platt family through the Cottrells.
Best, Barry Michie

Many thanks for adding this person. He is my Grandfather X 7.
He was born November 16, 1739.
His wife was Hepzibeth Betts who was also from Redding Ridge, Connecticut.
Lastly, I don't know how to add this info to Memorial.

Sorry, I don't know if I responded to this message before, but you're free to use my photos for anything you like!

Thanks so much for your messages regarding the Norton's of Guilford, CT. I was absent on the Find A Grave website for awhile and didn't see your messages until now. I appreciate your notes as well as Donna, who transferred images.
Thanks again to you and Donna!

Your correction request has been completed regarding the census form error. The correction addition caption for all census forms entered now reads: 1900
Parents and siblings page 2 of 2. listed Frank Wesely 66 Anna Wesely 66 Joseph Wesely 32 Frank Wesely 29 Anna Wesely 27 Julia Wesely 22 Mary Wesely 18 Johnnie Wesely 7. The Johnnie listed as their son was actually their grandson - he was the son of their daughter Anna.
Your time and attention to this is appreciated, thank you.
