Bio and Links
Bio Photo A cemetery is not a place just to bury the dead. It should be a sacred place for quiet reflection, peace, tranquility, honor, and remembrance. It is a history of people and a perpetual record of yesterday.

Love begins with a smile...grows with a kiss...and ends with a teardrop....

I will not use chalk, shaving cream, brake fluid or any other potentially harmful methods to enhance the inscriptions. Please do not use these on any photo requests I make, Thank you so very much.

Although FINDAGRAVE can be very useful for genealogy, FINDAGRAVE, as the name implies, is a grave registration site, not a genealogy site. I try to use this as my guide when on this site.

I will NOT add a link to a burial unknown memorial because I am still actively looking for where the person is actually buried. This site is named Find a GRAVE for a reason.

I've been active in genetic genealogy for many years now and Project Administrator for several DNA projects at Family Tree DNA since 2005, when I contributed my first sample. I've had my Y-DNA & Mt-DNA tested at FamilyTreeDNA and autosomal DNA tested at FamilyTreeDNA, Ancestry, and 23andme. Please let me know if you are interested in joining one of our groups.

I, Gary Boughton, give you permission to use any photo I have taken, if you are kind enough to give me credit for the photo. (Everyone likes to recognized for their time & effort) Thanks so very much.

# 43708580 Timothy Keeler
I made note of your comment about the 2 possible gravestones for Timothy Keeler. I am thinking the original one, the photograph you took, where it has 1815 is correct, not 1813. I do believe the 1813 stone is an error and not a separate Timothy Keeler... not sure if you had anymore feedback on the matter? But today I found his will on Ancestry; microfilm page 1358 of 1578 "Connecticut Wills & Probate Records...". Reading it, you find that he wrote the actual will on 26 Mar 1812. The Will's administrators, Matthew Olmstead and Thaddeus Keeler 2nd, appeared before the court on 28 Feb 1815. So that is why I feel the 1815 is correct. Thanks for the note about using the photograph of the stone you posted. Very helpful! Jane.

I noticed you left a large number of edits for the Boughton graves I manage. Do you want me to transfer them to you?

Wonderful photo - Thank you!
A picture truly is worth a thousand words! I sincerely appreciate your new photos of the headstones for Amos Hoy and Abigail (Ferry) Barnum; they died just 6 days apart. Buried next to each other, it appears they may be son-in-law / mother-in-law. I readily found a family group sheet that did list Abigail as having a daughter Naomi, but no details were given for Naomi. This is looking so promising! Also, thanks for the memorial transfer of Amos; it is most appreciated.

Bertha A Boughton Beebe
Hello Gary: I believe we are connected by way of the Rawsons. My Foster Grandfather was Porter Benson Rawson (107017628), nephew to Lella Rawson Boughton (36892986) by way of her brother, Charles Hall Rawson (5332723), and first cousin to Bertha A Boughton Beebe. My family while on a vacation to New York state met Mrs. Beebe in about 1957. She was very gracious and invited us into her home in Victor and showed us many albums of retro-pictures. She kept in touch with her cousin over the years and even wrote his obituary for the local paper. If this leads to more curiosity about our respective families, I would be happy to share.
