Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE! DO NOT UPLOAD ANY OF MY PHOTOS WITHOUT EXPRESS PERMISSION. I'm pretty easy to get along with and will be happy to transfer anything within the guidelines. But to take photos from my memorials that are copyright protected (even though they may not be watermarked as such - check the copyright laws for verification) is clearly not appropriate and, technically illegal. I'm not saying I'll send a team of lawyers after you, I'm just asking for a small degree of common courtesy. Just ask! All I want is attribution for the work I've done. I only have about 1,800 in my name, but I've uploaded over 20,000 as a partner/volunteer of another Find A Grave contributor, John O'Connor, who was entirely welcome to my work....he asked! As a matter of fact, many of the photos that I took (and therefore hold the copyright) were uploaded under John's account.

Contact me anytime with corrections, links, transfers (according to policy) or adding information. I will respond as quickly as is reasonable.

A quick note: I'm often asked a question about hyperlinks. To add an internal link within a biography, you would need to type
< a href="">Name< /a>
(I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)

RE: Sweetser Family
BTW -- the name, Evelyn, was likewise ASSUMED by John O'Connor's team to be "Sweetser" -- it may or may not be. Only the names Willie and Evelyn were given.

RE: Sweetser Family
Ellen J. (Sykes) Sweetser married Daniel D. Daniels on Jan. 20, 1872.

The "Willie" that was taken from Lot Diagrams by John O'Connor is Wilmer Edward "Willie" Daniels. He was born on May 9, 1874, died on Sept. 2, 1875 and was buried Sept. 6, 1875.

This is not guess-word, it is fact, from Burial Register, burial number 4,080, 6 Sept 1875, and corroborated by MAVR 1841-1910.

RE: Emily Williams Howard
That is very good. Thank you for this information. It is very helpful. I also believe she was born in Springfield. It appears her parents lived there in 1840.,%20Hampden,%20Massachusetts,%20USA&msdpn=4460&msdpn_PInfo=8-%7C0%7C0%7C0%7C2%7C0%7C24%7C0%7C1270%7C4460%7C0%7C&msdpn__ftp=Springfield,%20Hampden,%20Massachusetts,%20USA&cp=0&cpxt=1&msgdy=1818&msgpn=4412&msgpn_PInfo=8-%7C0%7C0%7C0%7C2%7C0%7C24%7C0%7C1066%7C4412%7C0%7C&msgpn__ftp=Deerfield,%20Franklin,%20Massachusetts,%20USA&msfng=Rev%20Bezaleel&msfns=Howard&msmng=Prudence&msmns=Williams&msbng0=Ezekiel&msbns0=Howard&msbng1=Lucinda%20Dwight&msbns1=Howard&msbng2=Sarah&msbns2=Howard&msbng3=John&msbns3=Howard&msbng4=Margaret&msbns4=Howard&mssng0=Ann%20McCarthy&mssns0=Williams&mssng1=Elizabeth%20Buckminister&mssns1=Dwight&mscng0=Lucinda%20Orne&mscns0=Howard&mscng1=Rev%20Thomas%20Dwight&mscns1=Howard&mscng2=Elizabeth%20Bridge&mscns2=Howard&mscng3=Sophia%20Worthington&mscns3=Howard&mscng4=Catherine%20Lathrop&mscns4=Howard&mscng5=Mary%20Dwight%20Andrews&mscns5=Howard&mscng6=Emily%20Williams&mscns6=Howard&mscng7=Amelia%20Peabody&mscns7=Howard&_83004003-n_xcl=f&MSAV=1&pcat=CEN_1840&h=3203598&recoff=6%207&dbid=8057&indiv=1&ml_rpos=27

Re: Transfer

I can completely understand where you are coming from, and when I see them again (we had been planning to meet in a few days) I will ask them what they would like to do with the memorial, and whether they would make an account to take care of it. Mr. LaDouceur was a very good man and a very loving father to my friend, and I worried that owning the memorial would cause her pain (she was around 13 when he passed), and she had given me permission. However, I understand your reluctance as I am not a member of the family. Thank you for respectfully declining, instead of ignoring me.
