First of all, do feel free to use any of the photos I have taken and posted for your own purposes. I do this for you! Second, if you are related to the subject of, or involved in research of a memorial, I am happy to transfer management to you.|
I was heartened (and dismayed, but at least I am not alone) by the top contributors' bios, and to a person they insisted on politeness. We are all volunteers, and everyone makes mistakes. Kindness is so important in getting things done here. There is a reason I haunt graveyards, and it isn't because I love being around people ;-)
I am as close to done with bulk uploading the recorded burials from the Hale Index for Milford Cemetery as I am going to get. There are over 5000 burials now listed on F-a-G and the Hale index is probably around 4500. I believe the greater part of the Old Section is already photographed, and those requests that go unanswered are either no longer there, illegible, or broken. Strikingly, there are stones from the late 17th century and very early 1700s that survive, but they are few.

Wow wow wow! You have been one busy bee!! I hope you have been enjoying 2016 because you have certainly been making it a joyful one for me! Thanks for all the great photos. It will be such a help to the respective families and honors the dead either way. I really appreciate all the time and effort you have contributed. I hope others will realize and appreciate how much you have added.
I'm really in the weed myself and haven't been able to contribute much time, But I wanted also to respond timely to your note about checking whether 153830307 was a duplicate of 144146050. Here is what I figured out (after several tries!).
There is a Sam Clark whose wife Hannah gave birth to two sons also called Sam Clark. One son died at age 7, the other son died in the Civil War.
1. Father Sam and Hannah are buried in Milford, Cemetery—153829998.
2. Sam who died at 7 is buried in Milford, Cemetery—153830307.
3. Sam who died in the Civil War is buried effectively where he fell in battle, Fredericksburg, VA—144146050.
4. This said, Sam who died in the Civil War also has a cenotaph with his family in Milford Cemetery—153830328 (see marking as a cenotaph as well as link to Fredericksburg memorial in bio).
So, four memorials. Although you can see that Sam Clark is a name on four findagrave memorials, there are really only two known markers:
A. The first lists Sam and his wife Hannah (one side of a marker in Milford Cemetery)
B. The second lists the two sons Sam and their siblings (another side of a marker in Milford Cemetery).
You been very kind to photo both of the markers, thus I’ll refer to your Photo A and your Photo B.
If all that precedes this makes sense, then perhaps you would please remove Photo A from 153830307 (the memorial already links to the related findagrave memorials for the parents that include Photo A) and remove both Photo A and Photo B from 144146050 (because the findagrave memorial is for the Virginia burial, but the photos are of the marker in CT.).
Then, under Gracie’s “the more the merrier” which I fully endorse, perhaps you would please add Photo B to 153830307 and add Photo B to 153830328?
I hope this all makes sense.
Anyway, I thank you again for all the great photos and sincerely appreciate all the great contributions you’ve made to findagrave and in particular for Milford Cemetery. Thanks Alycat!

|Gracie Ann Matisyn||RE: Milford map|
Hi there. No I didn't receive a map. I haven't been up that way in awhile. Im sure it would be very helpful even though I really just wander around seeing what catches my eye. You are such an asset to this site!

Thank you for posting the photo of Talcott and Mary's marker, and for the work of pulling out the text so it could be read.
|Kevin Avery||Beardsley Family Photos|
Thanks so much for posting these photos and finding Martha's husband! It is greatly appreciated! Would you consider a transfer of Dewitt Clinton Beardsley?

Thank you for getting the picture of her grave!
|Greenie||Thanks and Happy New Year|
Alycia K you are so kind. Thanks so very much for the photo requests fulfilled, in particular my grandparents Herbert and Grace Ford. You are generous to take the time to fulfill the requests and I appreciate it very much.
I have been unable to locate the map you mentioned. I looked this evening and couldn't find it but will do another search before the weekend is over. Did you send it to Gracie?
Again thanks for your kindness.

Hi, Alycia, sorry for the delay in responding.
The only fully personal requests that I have outstanding in Milford are for markers of my grandparents, Herb Anson and Grace (Whitcomb) Ford. Unfortunately, Herb died before I was born and I was too young for Grace's funeral in 1972 to remember in which section of Milford Cemetery she was being buried.
All of my other requests are toward documenting the burials transcribed from Hale, thus the "Photo Requests Needed" virtual cemetery given there are only 20 photo requests possible per week.
Thanks again for all you contribute to Findagrave. It was a good 2015, no?
