Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Colorado.
I was raised a Christian and knew Jesus at a young age.

Then the loss of my oldest brother in 2011 was devastating.

Any flowers and messages are very much appreciated!

Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.

Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.

Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life; not death, of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people,
a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.
A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering, always.

RE: Dear Nancy,
No, she is rightfully yours. I descend from John's 1st wife, Sarah "Unknown". Anna is a step.

RE: Nancy
It's just a memorial. I don't let these get in the way of collabration with cousins. I've made more friends through F.A.G. than I can remember. Anyone who spends their time looking for deceased people has to be a wonderful person.

RE: Nancy
Same here. I am a DAR under John Kenyon and his 3rd wife Welthan Reynolds. As she was documented at DAR as Welthan Mumford, I had to do extensive research to prove her parents as John Reynolds and Sarah Unknown. I can now supplement to add John as my DAR ancestor also.
John's Will lists his children, including the 2 by his 1st wife, Phoebe and Welthan, wife of John Kenyon.
That's when we did the cemetery visits.
There were major fires at the Rhode Island records buildings over the decades which destroyed many records, and many that did survive were pieced together wrong. That's how John Reynolds was incorrectly married to Phebe Tillinghast. Because two pages of the same record book were combined. Unfortunately, it's hard to get people to remove Phebe as John's wife!!
I have a cousin, who descends from Capt Benjamin Reynolds, who helped me prove my records.
While no record from the 1700's is absolute, I have done my best to accurately document my memorials.
Cousin Nancy

RE: Hello again,
#1: I don't have an Annette Utter Greene. There are no records for an Annette Utter. Her name was Anna.
#2: You have Annette Utter Greene. I have Anne Utter Greene Reynolds
#3: You have dates of 20 Oct, 1825-25 April, 1878.
I have 9 Aug, 1825-28 Dec, 1872.
#4: The differences in the names and dates would constitute 2 totally different women.
#5: I emailed F.A.G. management to decide. If they decide my memorial is a duplicate of yours, I asked them to delete mine. No merger.
I'm absolutely fine with having my memorial deleted. I've already enjoyed flying to Massachusetts, driving to Rhode Island, digging through records at the Providence Court House and Library. And best of all, walking all the Reynolds Cemeteries in N Kingston, looking for headstones. Loosing a memorial doesn't compare with being there and Looking for Anne.

RE: Wests
I linked my Aaron to David West and his wife, Judith. Thanks for the suggestion.

In response to your question, I do believe we know where David Jr is buried. I made a memorial for him yesterday, and linked him to David and Judith. See 178991286.

Something else that may be useful for your memorial for David Sr.100903349:

Mentioned as living and near 90 in a 1 Jul 1820 affidavit filed by his son, David.

Thanks. I can't come up with any explanation as to why he isn't buried with Judeth at Winsted Old Burying Ground. Maybe I'll reach out to the manager of her memorial to discuss.

thanks Laurel. Sharon

RE: hello
Hi Laurel: I was just browsing some old message when I was yours. Did you and your husband make to St. Joe and see the King Hill Cemetery?
We had a Robertson reunion this past July and of course, we made a pilgrimage to King Hill Cemetery.
One thing that I have also been doing since last summer is working on the history of the King Hill Cemetery with a fellow cemetery research from St. Joe.
Thus far we have traced back to the original property owner who was Peter Rhudy and after he died it remained in Robertson ownership off and on for many years.
It is still a work in progress....looking through old deeds and such. If you are interested or if you know of any of its history, please feel free to contact me. It is definitely a work in progress.....
On another note since you are related to John Harrington Robertson, you may also be interested to know that we FINALLY have been able to trace Mary Harrington Robertson's line because of some old letters that a "cousin" has and has transcribed for us. We were thrilled!
Take care.

Debby Havens-McBurney
Hi Laurel, my name is Debby Havens-McBurney and Bessie Brazelton- Havens was my Great Grandma. I have never seen a picture of her or the Brazelton Family before today, Do you have more photos, or know who does? I would love to learn more about our family history so any information anyone has would be greatly appreciated. My personal email is

Thank you!!

Brazelton transfers
Thanks for the transfers. I have a long list of distant cousins that I am slowly working my way through. When I get done with that Iíll be adding the Bios. That will be an ongoing project which will probably take several years to complete in my spare time.

It would be interesting to know if you and I are some degree of cousins, or just cousins of cousins--is that the same as cousins-in-law?

Mary Fairall Brazelton was a second cousin of my great-grandfather, Joseph Wright, in his Clark family.

John Reynolds #32603887
Hi, Laurel -- I'm researching John Reynolds, trying to find out if he is the father of Darius Reynolds. I'm doing this research for a second cousin of my husband; Darius is his 3x Great Grandfather. Did you happen to do research on the children of John Reynolds? Thanks for any help you can give me.
