No Request-Just thanks-
For having a "real" grave, instead of the too many phoney ones folks put on. (I hate them, and never except, use, add to or have added to my material, if I can help it)
Zachariah Booth- Stratford, Fairfield, Ct.

Thanks again,
Ms. Gerry Hill-Albany Ga

Thanks Jan, typical it should be Van Etten. I found Therza's Obit and added it along with an add from the Forget Me Not Inn which she also owned.

I don't mean for ME to give the tree, I mean for you to have Ancestry do it. I just don't want any information to get lost.

The "Samuel" is gone from John Allen's name! So nice, since none of the Allen family had middle names and now people will not be copying it wrong onto their trees! But now the problem is that there are 2 trees. I had written to F/G a while ago, and I guess they fixed it.

What would you like to do about the two trees?

If you are indisposed, would you like to give the tree to Doug, the other manager? or would you like to keep it, and transfer his information to yours? Would you like me to help?

If you don't care about having the tree, I can write him with the information that you have that he can put on his tree.

Or I can send you the information that he has for you to put on his tree. It can be stated that the information was composed by him. It can be in one section with that at the bottom, to make sure he gets credit for all that work!

Pondtown Cemetery, Norfolk CT
I could not find a pertinent edit tab for the main page here. I was at the town offices yesterday and was told that this had been the paupers cemetery for Norfolk and that there are many unmarked graves in here. After the cemetery opened up for burials again in about 1952 bones were found in various locations. Could you put something to this effect on the main page for Pondtown

Enos & Anna Benham
Hi I am looking for the grave site of Enos and Anna Benham. Enos was born 9/8/1713 in Wallingford CT. His fathers name was Joseph born 1685 also in Wallingford. I found Joseph on find a grave in center street cemetery and Enos daughter Molly but can not find Enos. I have to believe he is buried in Wallingford everyone around him was buried there. Is this something you could help me with? I would greatly appreciate any help. THANK YOU, Familyman

Thank you. Have a great day.

Jan, I appreciate so much the transfers you made of my family and apologize for taking so long to write and thank you. You've been at the top of my list; but was pre-occupied from developing a clot in leg from bumping box while organizing, and neglected to write!
I appreciate all your work over the years in setting up, photographing, and maintaining so many memorials over the years. It's truly a joy to get to see their headstones and have a lot of information on them, and then to have them linked to their families is wonderful. I feel very blessed.

Joel Jackson 22830705 Father 7026857
I have submitted an edit suggestion, adding the father, Henry Champion-7026857 of Joel Jackson-22830705. This information is based on the fact that the records of the Colchester First Church, which can be found through a Family History Library, give the following: "Joel, Negro child of Henry Champion, baptiized Apr. 17, 1763". In addition, Epaphroditus Champion- 6921232 paid for the stones ordered from Silas Brainard. The Connecticut Hisorical Society holds his account book. Epaphroditus and his siblings would be Joel's half siblings. Please see

16666451 Anna Allyn
I see that she died in New Haven, but is buried in Hartford. I understand from folks at the Wethersfield Historical Society that before the Civil War, people pretty much were buried in the church district where they died. I've heard of a few making it from near by to say Hartford, but from New Haven to Hartford seems pretty far. Any thoughts on this? I know her husband is in the crypt in New Haven. Thanks,

RE: Therza Van Etten
Thank you I haven't been able to find her obit online. Just found out that she started to work for the school in 1915 which leads me to believe her husband Isaac passed away before that. So now to find out more about him.

RE: Therza Van Etten
Thank you for your reply, It should be two words. But since sending you that message I have found more on her as well a picture of her. I will post it shortly. She worked for a time as a matron of a school until she purchased the Forget Me Not Inn, in Williamstown, Ma in 1937.

Capt. Aaron Cook
Hi Jan,

Aaron Cook was born on 12/28/1696 in Wallingford, New Haven, CT.

He is buried at Northford, New Haven County. He died 10/14/1756.

I'm working on the Cook genealogy and saw you didn't have his birth date:)

His birth is recorded in the Wallingford town records, his parents were Samuel Cook and Hannah Ives.

Best, Shirley

Mark Sistrand
Curran Family - St. Augustine
Hi Jane, I sent some edits in separate messages, but I think I confused two dates, so here is everything in one message:
St. Augustine Cemetery burials -
Margery Curran b.1842, Ireland d.30 APR 1874.
Her children, all born in Bpt.and died of diphtheria:
Catherine (Katie) b. 14 Jun 1868 d. 16 JUL 1873.
Jane (Janie) b. 1870 d. 15 JUL 1873.
Bernard (Bernie) b. 05 NOV 1871 d. 22 JUN 1873.

Her husband was John Curran, who remarried, died 1885. I have a feeling that he, as well, is buried in the same family plot. His second wife, Mary McMenamey, is buried in St. Michael.

Thank you very much! Mark
