That is a challenge, we need a will for this.

Family search gives Daniel living for the 1790 census.,%20Kings%20Co.,%20R.I.%22~%20+birth_year:%221739%22~%20+death_place:%22Bozrah,%20New%20London%20Co.,%20Conn.%22~%20+death_year:%221799%22~%20

RE: Jeremiah Paul memorial
Hi, Janet,
You are right, it does look like 1857. The top of the numeral is flat.

I am so sorry I did not get to VT this summer to have lunch with you. My schedule was crazy and did not allow for any meaningful travel. Next year I shall make sure of a visit, and hope Alice will be with me.

Love to you,

RE: Edit requests
As for Emily Griswold, Almeda Risley, I simply completed information already posted in the find a grave Obituary posted on their memorial pages. I have no relationship to them but have been working through the entire cemetery performing searches on for obituaries for the deceased within this cemetery. If I find new information that is missing I added it. If I find conflicting information I send it along to the memorial ownermaintainer. As for Catherine Kittie Belle Cole, she is my 1st cousin 2x removed, her father's obituary states the two eldest daughters were born in the Midwest. And with a misspelled last name here
family trees and 1930 census show her born in Wisconson. Her death date was obtained from NYS Death index here

Welcome home, Janet. You live in the L.A. area? I live in Palm Springs, after 31 years in Orange County (Connecticut prior to that).

RE: Re: Florentine E. (Buxton) Hulett
Hi Janet. I don't think I have it in the form that I can easily send you. I have many old documents from doing research at the FHL before everything was put on the internet. My dad was raised by his grandparents Alvin and Flora Electa Hulett Waters. He told me Flora was named after her mother, Florentine Electa Buxton. And Florentine Buxton's mother's name was Electa Harrington. So that is the best I can do. If you want to just leave it as "E" then that's okay. It really doesn't matter because as far I am concerned, Find A Grave isn't the place I go to record my own family history, anyway. It's up to you.

I appreciate all of the memorials you have created for many of my paternal direct ancestors and other relations in Vermont. And also for the photos, which makes the memorials far more interesting!.

Best regards,

RE: Children of Charles Bertram Nichols
Thank you, Janet. I am very familiar with the area. I was born in Randolph and spent my early childhood in Rutland. We visited my grandparents (Charles and Mabel) many times over the years in Granville; and I went back for a nostalgia trip a few years ago, visiting the different homes they lived in and the cemetery. They actually spent their last few years in a small house in Wells, so that is familiar to me as well; and the family at one time had a cottage on Lake St. Catherine. Is your cottage there or on the Little Lake? I can understand why you enjoy what you do. I find it fascinating and now that I have started researching both sides of my family tree (although we already have a fairly extensive written history of the Rogers family) I have to pry myself away from the computer!

RE: Dorothy (Eayres) Flanders
I really don't know what to say. This is my dilemma. The Burlington (VT) Free Press has her obituary in its Friday, March 11, 1966 newspaper which says she died unexpectedly Thursday morning at her home. The obituary shows she lived in Lake Helen, Florida. Anyways, that is how I arrived at the March 10th date - from the March 11th newspaper. I don't see that I have access to the sources you quoted so I can't check that out but that is okay. I hope you don't mind my responding to your email. I appreciate hearing from you and am glad Find A Grave website allows conservation like this. I wish you well and thank you very much. Herb Hatch

Thanks, Janet. You're the BEST! I've sent your messages to my cousin. If he can find some new clues, he will get in touch with you. Really appreciate your help!

RE: Araminta Marshall
Hi Janet -- thanks for your very detailed message this morning. It is very helpful to know things like whether or not there is a burial record and when the tombstones were transcribed. I appreciate you providing so much detail. I don't know the person who created the memorial but I have another cousin who is researching Araminta and who will pursue more information to try to determine the location of her grave. Every little tidbit of information is helpful. I'm sure the information you provided today will be helpful. Thanks again for your time and effort. You are so appreciated. Kind regards ...

Araminta Marshall
Hi Janet -- Thanks for your message tonight. Can you just clarify for me if burial records exist for the cemetery? Even if there is no tombstone, a burial record might exist ...? Or shall I forget the idea of finding a burial record for that cemetery?

Araminta Marshall
Hi Janet -- I wanted to thank you for searching so hard for a tombstone for Araminta Marshall. It was good of you to do such a thorough search. At the present, I have no additional information to add, but I will keep looking. In the meantime, thanks for being so willing to sacrifice time and effort to help strangers who live far away. You are much appreciated!

RE: Children of Charles Bertram Nichols
Thank you, Janet. I have been working on for only the last 6 weeks and today was my first day on Find A Grave, so I have no idea how this all works. Do you have a relationship to my grandparents, Charles and Mabel Nichols or, if not, how did you become the one to create their memorials? I am just very curious about all of this. Thank you.

Polly Lyon French
Hi Janet,
Thank you for catching the age difference for Mary. I have located a Gershom (Greshom) Lyon in Shelburne, VT (which is where Polly was born) and his wife was Sarah. I'll pursue that lead.

Thank you again.

RE: Alice (Waite) Potter
Thanks for your conscientious work in genealogy sharing with us through Find-a-Grave.

Thanks for your warning on the 1888 Genealogies of the Potter book. I haven't gotten into the meaty research of testing its assertions. I just posted scans of the pages for other Potters who might not have any overview of Potter family history. Can you recommend any publically viewable on-line sources specifically on descendants of immigrant William Potter of New Haven?

With respect and appreciation,


Added by JM on Aug 24, 2017 4:56 PM

RE: Alice (Waite) Potter
Hi Janet,

Are you descended from the colonial Potters? If so, this comprehensive Potter genealogy now in public domain is on-line as well as in larger genealogical libraries as you can find on WorldCat.

Thanks for your work managing Potter memorials! Another F-a-G Potter is user "Ginger" who manages graves for her Potter ancestors buried in Crown Hill in Indianapolis.

I hope you're having a good summer!

Best wishes,

the other JM

On find a grave, RobMinteer57 even has it listed in section "K" of Scotchtown Cemetery Erin NY..Kenneth M Moore 1937- 16 sept 1943..Inscription on the there..has WITH L. Jay Houck, and yet on Joyce Tice's historical website, it has him listed as with Harvey Houck..

Just something that is odd..and curious..I guess Ill have to call Ms. Tice and ask..ok, whats the secret..

Sorry about bothering ya..Im just a distant relative on the Moore/Hunter side thats curious..

Thanks again

I have a question reference memorial number given in subject area listed above.

Question: Im wondering, as to why Kenneth Moore (full name is actually..kenneth myles moore), is listed on Joyce Tice's website in Scotchtown Cemetery, Chemung County NY, as being buried in same plot as Harvey Houck section "K")

Reason being, is, he is related to my mother's father, Henry Clayton Moore sr. and Ellen (ella) Mae Rion. Erin, Breesport, and Elmira NY locations of course.

Just curious..lack of funds to pay for a plot for Kenneth Moore, (as the Moore clan were extremely poor, and mainly buried in section "J" of Maple Grove.."potters field" back in their time..

Asenath Miner Whiteside
Thanks so much for the links to Asenath Miner Whiteside's parents... her stone is remarkable, isn't it? As is the father's stone, born 1728 and still standing. At risk of sounding smug, I think our photographs of both stones did them justice!! I was hoping that someone would come up with her parents ... two husbands makes the job tricky, especially considering the timeframe. Thanks again. Nice work. :-) Alice

Calvin Burt husband of Mary Cushion
Vermont Vital Records of Son, Josiah W. Burt

see original document

1960 Census shows that Mary lived in the household
with her daughter Mary Mariah Burt Ellithorp and son-in-law, Lyman Ellithorp

I'm still looking for the marriage record that shows them married
December 21, 1821.
Where Calvin was 1860, I'm unsure. Still searching for
an exact date of birth for him and a census record.
