General: I stay in the "burbs" in New Haven County, and some Fairfield County. Please note: Bridgeport cemeteries located at or south of Route 1 (Boston Post Road)are simply too dangerous. Too many questionable characters. I do like the challenge of an older stone, so if it's there I will do all I can to find it.

RE: Larkins in Harwich, MA?
I don't believe those are our Larkins, but I appreciate you thinking of me. With the exception of John and his brother, Nicholas (buried in Riverside Cemetery in Shelton, his father and mother along with the majority of the children moved to Minnesota are are buried in St Patricks Catholic Cemetery in Kandiyohi. I find their gravestones on FindAGrave, after reading about the Larkin family in the Commemorative Biographical Record of New Haven County, CT. Hope you have great weather and a safe trip home.

Jane Elizabeth Larkin info
Alycia - Have a wonderful vacation at the Cape. I lived in MA for a few years (Amherst and Woburn) and Pete and I spent most of our married life in NH. Where we live is nice, but I do miss New England. Hope to make it back for a visit next fall. When you return and if you feel up to it, I would really appreciate it you would check at the cemetery for:

Jane Elizabeth Larkin Hoyt.
Birth: 18 AUG 1876 in Derby
Death: 26 JUN 1963 in Waterbury
Burial: 29 JUN 1963 in Derby (St. Mary's)

I will enter a memorial for her, but will use the St. Mary's in Ansonia. Can put her in the right place, if you find her. Thanks so much and have a safe trip.

RE: Larkins and Hoyts transferred
Is there such a cemetery as St. Mary's on Seymour Ave. in Derby? If I look it up on FindAGrave, I find nothing listed in Derby but St. Joseph's. If I do a Google Search, I find a St. Mary's, Derby listed through a mortuary. You found Ira and his daughter, Mary. I would like to find Ira's wife, Jane Elizabeth Larkin Hoyt. According to Jane Larkin Hoyt's obit in the "Waterbury American" dated 26JUN1963, Hickcox Funeral Home handled the services, the mass was at St. John's and she was buried at St. Mary's, Derby. I also Google mapped and it keeps taking me back to Ansonia. If it was the same cemetery as the Larkin/Hoyt burials, wonder why she wasn't buried near by (maybe no lots or spaces left in the Larkin plot). Don't go wandering around the graveyard, just wondering if you knew about another St. Mary's. Thanks.

re: Nettleton photos
Thanks so much for the David & Mabel (Sanford) Nettleton stone photos and especially for including the Hale page that shows that Mabel is next to David even though the stone is gone.

RE: Larkins and Hoyts transferred
Alycia - I am especially thrilled to see Ira Ford Hoyt and his daughter. We weren't sure where Ira and Mary were buried. Will slowly sort through the rest of the Larkin graves and make the connections, where possible. So you had to go to such trouble to recover the photos, but much appreciated.

RE: Larkins galore
Alycia - Definitely assign Ellen Battersby to me. I found her in a 1870 census report, living with John and Jane. Jane's brother, Dennis, is also living with them, along with another woman named Mary Rafferty. Older census, so it doesn't show the family connections. Will flag her in my research and hopefully, be able to add more information.

RE: Larkins galore
Alycia - I want to thank you for taking the photo of the Larkin headstone. Can't tell you how much my husband and I appreciate your effort. And another big thank you for taking the time to run down some of the Hoyt family members. Would appreciate you transferring Ira Hoyt and Mary Larkin Hoyt to me. I know they are related. Have more info on the Hoyt family, than Larkin. I did check my Hoyt family tree for an Ellen Hoyt or Ellen Battersby, had 3 Ellens, but have photos of their headstones so this Ellen is a mystery. If she was buried with Ira and Mary, go ahead and transfer her too. As I get back to family history work on a more permanent basis, I may run across this Ellen. I did change the cemetery information this morning and added the transcriptions. Will beef up bios a little later. Am almost at the end of 100 photo restoration project, so I should be able to get back to research (much more fun!). Thanks again for your help and the clarification of the cemetery information.
