Roxanna Foote Beecher #17148568
Jan - I took a picture of Roxanna Beecher's headstone in East Litchfield cemetery. Would you like me to add the photo to the memorial you created for her? I am curious as to why she is not listed as being buried in East Litchfield cemetery. Thank you for all you do for Find-A-Grave. JIM

Nicholas Ames #18899052
I believe Sgt. Nicholas Ames #18899052 is also known as Capt. Nicholas Ames. There is a source on Ancestry: U. S. Newspaper Extractions from the Northeast, 1704-1930 referring to him as Capt. Nicholas Ames, died 23 Dec 1817. I also believe that his first wife was Abigail Robinson #18898994 who died at the age of 19 on 18 Jun 1769. Their son John #78869812 was born in 1769 and died 19 Oct 1824 with a wife Vienna Penfield. Nicholas Ames later married Theodosia Stocking, but I have not yet found their marriage record.

RE: Levi Curtiss
Agreed on Abigail, wife #1; Levi married Abigail Ufford as wife #2. I haven't found a record anywhere (yet) for a son Levi Curtiss who died young. That's my best guess for Levi buried next to her. Her husband outlived her by 40 years. It might make sense she's buried with a child died closer to when she did. Maybe she even died in childbirth? I'm still looking.

Levi Curtiss
I have my own picture. I guess I could add that, too. I'm still working out who the other stone belongs to. It does look older though, doesn't it?

RE: State Street Cemetery
OH good I should have known. I spoke with the
attorney and he said that the main part they
are going for is where the plots are..who is
buried where and any maps that they be out there.
Apparently someone took everything from this
cemetery and kept it or lost it. I found
some interesting families that are still living
on State Street. Good place to start.

State Street Cemetery
Regarding New Haven Register's article about
the above mentioned cemetery...they are looking
or hoping to find family members of this
financially abandoned cemetery in disrepair.
The article appeared 5/18/17 if you would
like to read it. The attorney who is trying to
help this dire situation is Daniel Ioime of
Hamden CT.. 203-287-9377.
I thought with the amount of time you spent there
and magnitude of photos and histories seen you
might be able to give him a head's up on a person
that had a loved one buried there.
Thanks Jan..your work is so appreciated.

Ashbel Moses d. 1837
Is it for certain that Ashbel Moses is buried in East Hartland Cemetery and a stone wasn't placed in memory of him? I only ask because he was originally buried on the Philips's Farm in Barkhamsted which is now under Lake McDonough. He would have been buried about 100 yrs by the time the formation of the lake occurred.

Transfer of Albert Porter Bradstreet

Dear Jan,

Thank you for all you do for so many.
Alber Porter Bradstreet is #23197699 at Hillside Cemetery in Thomaston, CT

He is my grandmother Edith Amanada Thomas m. Ulric Brower Mather's uncle. He was born in our homestead at 237 Main St Thomaston, CT. He and his wife had no children but he contributed greatly to the community and became a judge. I would like to take care of his site if possible.

This homestead is now the Seth Thomas-Bradstreet Home Museum in Thomaston, CT.

Thank you,
Gwen Riggs

DAVID ABELL, Sr., YOUR Find A Grave Memorial# 21857830
Hi, Jan...
There is already a memorial for my 4x great grandfather, DAVID ABELL, Sr. (with the correct surname spelling of TWO "L"s). It is Find A Grave #37561574. If you would kindly merge your document, it would be appreciated, as the one with the correct spelling continues back to the immigrant, Robert Abell, Esq. (and also connects to the recent day, including my mother!).

Thank you in advance for making this memorial more correctly completed.
