Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you so much to the volunteers who not only list the information but also provide a photograph of the stones.

I'm 12th Generation American, directly decended from Thomas Chaffee (1635) and as such the Chaffee's and allied families are my interest.

The faq's are an amazing repository of information for FAG. You'll also learn a lot from the forums as well.

Do Not request transfers/corrections here they will be deleted. Please use the SAC feature by clicking the edit tab on the memorial needing correction.

To add an internal link in the 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.)

Thanks to DaurRegt (#47891223) for the idea on putting the link on the profile.

Please note: I have been putting a lot of information on Wikitree and you may want to search there as well, especially for the Chaffee, Carpenter and Grant families.

RE: George Hosseler
I'd be glad to do that. I thought you would want to see the actual document so that you would know it's the real thing. But you're right it is hard to read. I will try to transcribe it for you and send it again. It was given to me by my aunt Mary Lou Shutt maiden name Stahl, she is the daughter of Margaret Ella Hossler. Margaret is the daughter of John Henry Hossler. And I believe George is his brother. That means Benjamin Hossler would be both of their fathers and Sarah Ernst would be their mother. Hope this makes sense. Give me a little time and I will transcribe it for you.

Incorrect memorial
Hi, please delete memorial 114229827. It is essentially a duplicate of your memorial 114229964. (The married and maiden names in 114229827 are reversed.)

Thanks ... Tim

F Ellis Draper birthdate
Is it possible to determine where you found F(Franklin) Ellis Draper's date of birth as 4 July 1828, MA? He was married to Helen Stanley whose name is on a monument with her married daughter, but the stone only references F Ellis as being Helen's wife.

Possibly a needle in a haystack, but I would like to know the source. Thanks for all of the information you post.

RE: Oscar Leyard
Yes, it was Oliver Ledyard. The govt shows him as Oliver, Oliver S, and Oliver P.S. Ledyard. They are all the same man. And he has stones in both places, both military stones. We are erecting a veteran's monument in Thayer Cemetery and adding all the veteran's names. He was a real confusion for me. I got it now, thanks.

Hi, you created three "Find A Grave" records in March 2013 for graves with my surname (relations of mine). My question is "do you have a personal family interest in these 19th century graves?"
Thank you,
