|Bio and Links|
I have been doing genealogy research since 2003. My profile picture is my grandfather Charles Rieve and his father Charles Rieve. I enjoy going through old cemeteries and newer ones. I have been mainly researching Bennington County, Vermont but do research other areas also. I have some kind of relation to many memorials that I have submitted.|
If you want a memorial transferred to you please use FAG guidelines and the edit link on the far top right of the memorial, that is the only way I will do transfers, direct emails and messages will not be done. INCLUDE YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND YOUR MEMBER NUMBER. Just saying family is not sufficient - many of the memorials I have done are in my "family" also, I need a specific relationship or the transfer will not be done. If you have corrections please use the edit link on the far right of the memorial, with the new edit system, you can't tell me the source of your information. I will be verifying the information you send - I do not use ages on headstones to calculate birth dates, they can and have been incorrect on many occasions. If I can't find a valid record to verify your birthdate edits they will not be done. I verify all corrections before doing them. If you use my pictures on your family tree on Ancestry.oom or another service please state where you got the picture.
I am extensively researching the Hitchcock and Rudd families from Connecticut, Massachusetts & Vermont.

Hi. I think that either the gravestone or the transcription of the death date for Benjamin Woosta Hitchcock (memorial #86735844) is incorrect. There is an obituary notice from the New York Times of April 16, 1916 for Mr. Hitchcock:
"Benjamin W. Hitchcock, formerly a music publisher here, and once active in the real estate business, died yesterday in his home in Jersey City in his eighty-ninth year. He is said to be one of the first to sell real estate on the installment plan."
I'm reluctant to edit the entry since I didn't actually see the stone. Hope you have the wherewithal to check it out.

I have a photo of a Harold W Bibber. This was in with old family papers and I have no idea whom he is. My guess is he's a contemporary of my in-laws, which would mean he could be your Harold Bibber. I don't want to just upload his photo in case it's the wrong person. Did you know him? Would you recognize his picture?

Nancy, thanks so much. Sheila
|claflamm||RE: Israel & Genevieve LaFlamme|
Thanks for the update. Yes they are related (according to Family Tree Maker - 4th cousin 2x removed).
Most, if not all, the LaFlamme's or LaFlam's in that cemetery are somehow related. Still working on connecting all the dots.
There is one in there that I can't connect though.
Find A Grave Memorial# 79805325 Walter Ray LAFLAMME. F - Benjamin, M - Olympia Palmieri.
Can't seem to get any further back than that.
What happens if these memorials are transferred to me ?
Kinda new to managing memorials.
Thanks for your help.

|Sheila Everett||Cemetery Info for Nellie Hulihan Hill|
Hello. Wondering if you may know of cemetery location for my grandmother Helen Agnes (Nellie) Hulihan Hill. She was my father's mother and first wife of Walter A Hill buried in Park Lawn Cemetery. She died 12 October 1927 when my father was about 4 years old. I have not been able to locate burial info for her though I thought she might be with the Hulihan's at St. Mary's Cemetery in Hoosick Falls. I also cannot locate my father's brother Walter A Hill Jr who drowned in the Roaring Branch at the age of 4 in 1925. I would like to find these locations. Thanks Sheila Hill Everett

Cremains of Grave Evans Mattison and her daughter Helen Mattison are in Forest Hill Cemetery, Boston, MA
|Sheila Y.||RE: Housel Claxton Wedding (Claxton Family)|
Happy to provide some info.
You should check out the fultonhistory.com website. They have many newspapers scanned that are searchable for names, places, etc. Helen Claxton Housel comes up frequently, especially in Troy newspapers in the 1940s-1950s, noting her visits to town to see her father. The social media/facebook of its day. :)
Oops, I typed the name Story as Store, my mistake. It does read "Mr. Stephen Story".
|Deborah Myers||Mary Emerson Story|
Since I'm inside sick with a cold I decided to **look for more of your family in the book. I found the obituary for Mary Emerson Story in the 1792 Vermont Gazette section. So whoever put her date of death as 1777 was wrong because she died in 1792.
From the book in the 1792 section:
Died in Bennington Saturday last, Mrs. Mary Story, late consort of Mr. Stephen Store in her 88th year of age.
These are the names of Hitchcock people in the book: Ebenezer, Elisha, George, George S., Hanna, Peletiah, Samuel, Samuel (Esquire), and Zina.
