Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestors settled in Bergen and Sussex counties, New Jersey, in the 17th and 18th centuries, where some descendants have remained to the present day. I grew up in Cambridge and Dedham, MA with one foot in Vermont. Until recently I lived in Amherst, MA, where my graving was concentrated in Hampshire and Franklin counties in the Connecticut river valley. I have recently moved to Woodstock, VT, with part of the summers in Greensboro, VT, so my graving will now be concentrated in Windsor, Orleans and Caledonia counties.

I welcome your corrections, as well as any additional information you can provide. I receive so many suggested edits that I cannot review them - I just don't have the time. One problem with submitted edits is that I no longer know if the information in a memorial represents my work. So, please get it right and remember, the memorial goes out over my name!

I am happy to transfer memorials if you are related. You are welcome to use any of my photos - I'd appreciate a credit. Thank you.

Family names of interest to me: Edsall, Tileston, Dunham, Cranford, Barton, DeKay, Foote, Lawrence, Linn, Morse, Noyes, Seeley, Tiffany, Woodhull.

RE: Lisa Anne Washburn
you are very welcome. I will try to provide something for her sister Susan as well, but that grave is managed by a different person.

I contacted the Genealogist for the Assoc of Blauvelt Desc - to tell them to change Huntington MO to Huntingtown MD.

I should have taken a moment to look it up myself... smiling!

His obituary did state MD
I was going from the Blauvelt Records. When I looked for Huntington MD...I ran across a Huntingtown in Calvert County MD...

Looked up his SS record and it Huntingtown instead of Huntington.

We can now add Calvert County Huntingtown.

Last known residence:
City: Huntingtown
County: Calvert
State: Maryland

RE: Linda Deware
David, Thank you for responding so quickly. You made a beautiful memorial page for my sister in law, and I hope that the one I eventually create will look as good. The one you did was, as you acknowledged, still premature. Thank you for your efforts for Find a Grave. Jack

Reference your memorial for Linda Joy Deware in Gilmanton, New Hampshire.

Lnda has not yet been buried. There is no grave yet. I was planning to create her memorial, as I did for the rest of my wife's family, after the funeral.

It is contrary to Find A Grave rules to have LIVING family members, including ME, mentioned in an obituary on the site.

Please delete this memorial, before I have to report it to Find A Grave. I will create it after the funeral and burial, in May.

Removal of grave
I was surprised to find my stone on this site, with an "unknown" death date. Having had cancer with some people thinking I died. I am very uncomfortable with this being on Grave finder. In addition, my husband Greg has a site, with his estranged step father, whom he hasn't seen in 35 years. He didn't want to be in the obituary, so I am sure he doesn't want to be conneted tho him here. His step father, is David Clesson McIntyre 1936 - 2016. I would like both Gregory McIntyre and my Leslie Howard McIntyre's grave taken down until we are DEAD. Both of us are very much alive and it is very uncomfortable to see our names on this. Thank you

RE: Cara Mandeville
Hi David,
Thank you so much. I have been researching her father's family (my family) and it is heartwarming to bring the family together. Many thanks for all you do on Find-a-Grave!

Swett photos
Thank you, so much for the 3 photos of the Swett family. I live far away and it is always so nice to be able to see the graves. I'm hoping to get up there and be able to see them in person, in the mean time I truly appreciate the time and effort it takes to get the photos taken. Thank you.
