Bio and Links
I am retired and loving it! Originally from S.TX, but have lived in Nev, Idaho, Montana, Ca., and for the last 23 years ,in SE Connecticut.I have a BA in History and Sociology, so worked in the casino industry for nearly 40 years.My love has always been History and I really love doing research . My ancestors were "all American"...Irish- Roumanian Jewish on my Mom's side, and Irish- Hispanic- Native American on Dad's side.
When I go to photograph a request, I will usually take more photos of the cemetery, if seemingly related graves haven't already been posted. Just ask for the management to be transferred!

RE: Frederick Bliven

Thank you so much for your search effort. I know what it's like to search and come away without success.

If I do get any additional information I will pass on to you!

First Hopkinton Cemetery
Thank you for sharing the marker photos of my father's maternal grandparents, George Franklin Davis & Sarah Maria Spicer. Dad's family moved to Los Angeles in 1910 and I seldom get to visit my New England roots.

Wow, this calls for some investigating. Someone else has them listed in a NY cemetery, so that may be the reality! I appreciate your time in checking on the Babcocks... it will help me solve one of our family mysteries.
Thanks so much,
Leslie Lewis

I got your message about Peleg Babcock. Peleg Sr. lived 1767-1858. He was married to 1) Elizabeth Wells then 2) Anna. Peleg Babcock Jr. lived 1801-1858. So father and son died the same year. But Jr. was married to 1) Lucinda Brown then 2) Emily Nichols. Any photos greatly appreciated! Right now there are three memorials for Peleg Babcock Jr so I am hoping a photo will verify exactly where he is buried.
Thanks so much for your time and effort on this! Volunteers like yourself really make this a wonderful site!!
