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: Thanks for the photos of the Denisons

Just finished posting all the headstones from the Cook Family Burying Ground. It was easy to find and the stones are quite easily read. Better shape than I expected.

Ida Malzahn Burial Marker
Dear Greg,
Went to the Lyra Cemetery. There is only one family stone for the Malzahn family in that cemetery. Adjacent to that stone is a marker for Ferdinand Malzahn. At the St. John Cemetery in Good Thunder there are numerous Malzahn burials, but none for Ida. So, left just a photo of the family stone in Lyra Cemetery as there are no other burial stones for that surname. Let me know if you DON'T want that marker on her memorial and I'll delete it.

RE: Edward Spalding # 119609873
Thanks for getting back to me. Mary Brackett Spaulding, Edward's first wife, is buried in the Old Plainfield Cemetery, Plainfield, CT. I have just come from there. Records from the Hale Collection verify this. Edward's marker is no where to be found, but would assume he is in the same area. Lots of space with no current markers, in the oldest part of that cemetery. Thanks again, Bette

I believe you requested pictures of Cockles in Arborville Cemetery. I arrived back in Nebraska yesterday for a visit home and for family research. I am currently living on Pine Island in Florida. I was headed to the Arborville Cemetery this morning and checked online and saw there were photo requests. It is a typical country cemetery with no index. The marker requested was literally the last marker in the cemetery I checked.

Please notice I have also added some other Cockles buried nearby. I haven't entered their information yet, only the pictures.

Hi, can you tell me where you found the death date for Edward Spalding. I am in the Plainfield, CT town hall, and can find no record of his death.
Thanks, Bette

RE: Thanks for the photos of the Denisons

Just did some research on line and find that the Cook Family Burying Ground is not the same cemetery as the Elmer Cook Burying Ground.
The coordinates for the Cook Family Grounds are N42 33.651 W74 11.264. See this site for more information and a listing of burials.

Again if you put in those coordinates you will see it does show up as being in the Partridge Run Wildlife Management area. I will have to make a trip out that way in the next couple weeks to find and confirm it's existence as well as take photo's.

The people that you mentioned ARE buried in Spruce
Grove Cemetery. They are my family, so I should know. And we were just there. I have pictures here somewhere, just haven't put them online. We know where they all are, and to most of us, that is what really matters. The gal that you have checking for you is not as familiar with our family, and so wouldn't know where they are. I do. S
