Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started on my family tree in 6th grade (1972) when I wrote a report about my ancestors who settled in Minnesota, and have been fascinated with genealogy ever since. During college, I spent my spring breaks and summer months visiting cemeteries, courthouses and genealogy libraries while my contemporaries were no doubt up to other things. Find-a-Grave has blossomed into a wonderful resource, though I hope eventually individuals can be linked with "Family Tree" profiles at Family Search.

My grandparents:
Albert Lee Volk
Della Margaret Henrietta Buelow Volk
Henry "Warren" Denison
Frances "Evelyn" Thornson Denison

My wife Ruth's parents:
Lavere Burchett
Marjorie Ruth Morris Burchett

RE: Alexander Volk 111450668... again
There was no stone for Alexander, although his name appears numerous times on his daughter's stone. That is in the uppermost part of the cemetery at the back. BUT, on re-reading his obit, he is survived by a daughter with the last name of Pettis. This are many stones with that last name in this cemetery. Perhaps we walked right by his stone, if he was buried next to or near this daughter.

The cemetery is multilevels, and a difficult one to walk. Also there are numerous large pine trees and their debris has covered some stones completely.

RE: Mary Spalding
Hi Greg,
My ancestor link is Jacob, (1696-1728) younger brother to Josiah. The hand drawn map is about 4 feet wide by 6 or 7 feet high. It has been framed and glass covered, and bolted to the wall in the town clerk's office in Plainfield, CT. I took two photos of the map, the one I posted and a larger one, but I do not find Josiah buried near Jacob. If you are not in the CT area, you could contact the Killingly Historical Society, Marilyn Labbe, and she could research for a very small fee. They have a web site, also phone is:(860) 779-7250, open Wed and Sat. Fabulous resource. If you want a copy of my larger map photo, please send me your home email address.

RE: Mary Spalding
The letters and numbers are not very visable in the photo. I had to identify the marker from its location, and by feeling the MS, and then the date. Never expected to find this ancestor's marker. Bette
