Would you be willing to post as part of his bio?
John Whittelsey, b. Dec. 11, 1665, in the house beside the ferry at Say Brook Point, Conn.— the first born Whittelsey in America. On this time-honored spot he spent his life. He was a shoemaker by trade and kept general merchandise for sale; it is also probable that he loaned money in small amounts at a good rate of interest. He served the colony in both political and military offices. [Old Saybrook Records, Vo1. I.] On the 9th day of May, 1693, married Hannah Long, who was born on the 11th September, 1665, at Say Brook, Conn., and who was the widow of Simon Large.

The name is found among the list of those made "freemen" on the 5th of April, 1704. Served as "Townsman" during the year of 1705. [Colonial Records of Conn., 169610 1705. Saybrook Records, Vo1. I.]

Lydia Ingraham, the marker looks like she died 6 Sep 1756, not 1758, age 2 years old. Her birth date should be 1754. Can you change.
Please include the find a grave # with your reply.

Samuel Ingraham, can you tell me if his wife's name is Abigail Ingraham, #11241317, their birth and death dates are very close. Are they buried near each other.
Please include find a grave# in your reply.

I was wondering if you are connected to Charles or Philip KIBBE that you transcribed from Somer, CT and Madison Co., NY?
My ancestor, James WELLS, lived in the same town as where Philip purchased land and the son that was born to James WELLS in 1825 was named Charles Kibbe WELLS. I am trying to find if there is a connection other than neighbor/friends.

Judith, I am working on a memorial for Jacqueline Turner Creger. Her obit lists her mother as Myrtle Elizabeth Ferguson Turner, and a half brother named Rodney Havens (20651871). You put virtual flowers on the memorials for Myrtle E Havens (20651323) and Rodney. I believe that Myrtle is Rodney's mother, by her second husband (Havens), and that her first husband was William Turner, and Jacqueline's father. By any chance, can you confirm this? Thanks for your help.
|JM||Wow, thanks Judith.|
Thanks for all the detail you include on your memorials.

|Susan Riegler||Find A Grave Memorial# 9022384, Nancy Hardy's headstone photo her husband's @ Assumption Grotto|
Thanks so much for recording all the information you do! The headstone photo displayed for Nancy Hardy is her husband's (Michael Hardy, Find A Grave Memorial# 9022381); it says Father on the top. Nancy's data lists her inscription as Mother. If you have that photo, will you please upload it to Nancy's file? Thanks so much!
