Some of the names I have been working on are: Baker, Barnes, Bates, Bell, Carter, Curtis, Dekin, Disosway, Elwell, Graves, Guild, Heard, Heath, Hill, Kissam, McKenney, Lunt, Miner, Potter, Pray, Scott, Scouler, Thomas(s)on, Tillmont, Wagner, Washabaugh, Weir and Williamson.
If I have created a memorial for a relative of yours, I will gladly transfer management, unless it's also a relative of mine.
I am also happy to fulfill photo requests.
You are welcome to use my photos for any purpose that honors the deceased (for example, in an on-line family tree).
I came across Francis and Elizabeth Bissel Bates on your Find A Grave. I'm almost certain they are my 8th G-grandparents. All of their children were born in Rhode Island...why the move to Vermont? Lydia Bates, a child of Francis/Eliz you don't have listed, is my link and vanished from my RI search at the State Archives....until possibly now....I'm thinking maybe she and her husband Joseph Coggeshall moved to VT. I just don't understand why they would do that. They have at least one child born in RI- Anna H Coggeshall.
Can you provide some insight to the VT move and any add'l info you have of Francis and Elizabeth?
RE: Blake photo in Edson Cemetery The Benjamin Blake monument that I photographed is in Edson Cemetery, Lot 10501. According to cemetery records, William Stanley is buried in Grave 3 and Mary Stanley in Grave 4. Ella L. Blake is listed as buried in Grave 2. Others listed as buried there are Benjamin M. Blake and three infants. However, only the name Benjamin M. Blake is on the monument.
Westlawn Cemetery (which you have on memorials 155093852 and 155093918 as the burial locations of Benjamin and Ella) is a separate cemetery across the street from Edson.
RE: Florence's footstone That makes sense as I couldn't understand the "misspelling of Lorenzo". I'll check on the rest of the footstones on my next visit to Fairview when I go after the Decatur's for you. Any suggestions on the Decatur's lot number?
RE: Roscoe G. Heard and Frank Shattuck Could you send me directly a copy of the Ayer newspaper article? I'll take it to the Cemetery Office and have them double check their records. They have been very interested in helping me with all my Find-a-Grave requests and pin-pointing exactly where graves are located. email@example.com
Mildred & Frank Hager Holy Cross Cemetery in Akron. I looked online for records of the Hagers at Holy Cross and could not find them. There are several Hagers buried there, but none with dates that are even close to Mildred and Frank.
If you are certain they are buried there I will go to the cemetery office and check.
