25998519 Joseph Wheaten
I noticed on Joseph's memorial that you indicate "[History of Wheaton family from Pompey New York, says they immigrated from Scotland." I am a Wheaton, and live a few miles from Pompey. My Atwell ancestors were there, so I have been there many times, and never heard of these Wheatons being there. One Atwell wife named Orange was from Scotlend. Could you give me more information?
Were you referring to a book or did someone in the Pompey Historical Society tell you?
Thank you for your help.

Thanks for the amazingly quick acceptance of the edits for Elias Shevalier and family. I found a great article in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register that takes away some doubts.

You bio on 23925409
Jan,

Your bio sketch for Gov. William Pitkin's memorial contains an error. Third line: "He was also a Connecticut Supreme Court Judge." There was no Supreme Court of Connecticut prior to U.S. statehood (there was no "Supreme Court" in any of the 13 colonies prior to their respective statehoods) and the Pitkin Family of American misstates history on that part. He was a Judge of the Superior Court of Hartford County for 12 years from 1741 to 1753. His gravestone also uses the term Superior, not Supreme, Court.

Regards

I found this article about the death of this lady. Please post for other researchers. Thank you. Mary

Article appears in the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 22 January 1889 reads...

New Haven, Connecticut, January 21 - Mrs. Julia B. Graves, of Middletown, while attending services yesterday morning at the Second Universalist Church, this city, uttered a shriek and fell dead in the arms of her nephew, George E. Gay. There was much excitement among the congregation, and a panic was narrowly averted. The pastor at once closed the service.

Burial location of Roger Coit, Plainfield Cemetery, CT
Hey Jan, left this message Dec. 27, 2016, pardon the repeat message, but can't recall if you responded-

Jan, maybe you can help me. I was trying to figure out the Plainfield Cemetery/Old Plainfield Cemetery/New Plainfield Cemetery relationship.

Old Plainfield Cemetery
Location: Canterbury Road

New Plainfield Cemetery
Location: Canterbury Road, next to Old Plainfield Cemetery

[Note: the Hale collection has the above linked together as one)

Find A Grave has:
1) Plainfield Cemetery, Windham, CT (?New?)
2) Old Plainfield Cemetery, Windham, CT

The reason for my question is the result of a search for the resting place of Hon. Roger Coit (b. 25 Jan 1786 in Plainfield, CT) who died Aug. 14, 1856 in Adrian, Michigan. The source below states:
"His remains lie in the cemetery at Plainfield, Conn."

At the time of his death (1856) would there have been only 1 cemetery in Plainfield? Would that cemetery be "Old Plainfield Cemetery"?

Only Find A Grave 1) "Plainfield Cemetery", has any Coit burials.

~"The COIT family; or the descendants of John Coit. who appears among the settlers of Salem, Mass., in 1638. at Gloucester in 1644, and at New London, Conn., in in 1650". Case, 1874. pg. 225.

Parents of Nathaniel Page
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=18342611

Jan, a 1996 book (Bedford Flag Unfurled by Sharon Lawrence McDonald) identifies the father of Nathaniel Page as Nathaniel Page Sr.

Do you recall what source identified Nathaniel's parents as George and Sarah (Lindsley) Page?

hello again
I just realized that it said "to be published" to contact you, meaning also on ancestry I think. Please let me know if I can use your Town Street Cemetery photo for my 7th great grandfather Caleb Booth (and his family buried there) ancestry gallery. If not, I understand :)

Town Street Cemetery photo
Hello! I read your profile about use of photos you took and being able to use them on ancestry and stuff. I used your Town Street Cemetery photo on my ancestry for Caleb Booth (7th great grandfather), attributed as "Photo by Jan Franco" and your F.a.G. number.

Dave
New London Sick Benefit Society Cemetery
Jan, I was in the cemetery taking pictures and comparing entries. Some of the names are duplicates, some are from another cemetery, and another is a Roman Catholic in a Jewish cemetery. Is there any actual listing of who to contact for actual burial listings?
Here are the problems
Eusebia Ball- Mich. (no marker in cemetery)
John Ball - Mich. (no marker in cemetery)
Daniel Needham - (no marker in cemetery)
Hannah Needham - (no marker in cemetery)
Ebenezer Rogers - (no marker in cemetery)
Louis Leybovitch - duplicated
Alma Stocklin (Roman Catholic, obit lists New London, and no marker in cemetery)
Thanks
Dave

Robert Herron
Rocky Hill Historical Society
Hi Jan:
I'm Bob Herron, historian with the Rocky Hill Historical Society. I've just finished entering an old WPA list of graves at Center Cemetery into a spreadsheet and comparing it against graves in findagrave. I'm trying to get as complete a list as I can of people buried in the cemetery.

My sense is that your Findagrave work is related to genealogy. I've been playing with the idea of starting a genealogy project at the historical society to document Rocky Hill families. I am hoping that you'd like to be involved.

I'm at nutmegrob@gmail.com

Andrew Bristol
Bristol in New Haven, Grove Cemetery
My name is Andrew Bristol. The Bristol in New Haven are cousins. I was getting some data from the pictures of their markers when I discovered a mix up in the family links. Start with William Brooks Bristol (8477935). He was the husband of sisters Mary Wolcott Bliss (13386614) and Caroline Bliss (13386627). Both sisters named a daughter Mary Bliss Bristol. Mary Wolcott died before her daughter Mary Bliss Bristol (13386491) in the same year, 1849. You have this Mary Bliss Bristol's mother as herself and not connected to Mary Wolcott Bliss Bristol. Caroline's daughter was born 1853 and died 1935. I think she is the one listed as Mary B Bristol (157059735). Are you able to fix these miss-links?

Dear Jan Franco,
First, let me thank you for all the work you have done on this site. There are so many things I am finding our about my family tree through findagrave.

I was just looking at the Rev. George Benjamin Atwell

Find A Grave Memorial# 26158117
I am confused between the Rev. George Benjamin Atwell and his son, George B. Atwell. The photo at the top right says
George B. Atwell~Aged 85 years.
Yet the memorial says that he was 48 years and five months old. I am confused about this memorial and his son's George B. Atwell,
