FOR ALL THE FOLKS THAT SPUTTER ABOUT WHAT INFORMATION I AM LACKING ON MY MEMORIALS...PLEASE SEE PHOTO AT LEFT. IT SHOULD EXPLAIN MY DILEMMA!|
I have gone around a lot of Caledonia County of Vermont photographing entire cemeteries. I am in the process of transcribing all of the photos and will post names that are not already on the site.
But, as I live in the world of "not much better than dial-up internet", it will be at the most basic level. (ie, not linking family members). The volume is just too high, and internet too slow. I will, however, do my best to keep up with any requests made.
THERE IS A LOT OF TALK AND COMPLAINTS ABOUT MEMBERS WHO APPEAR TO BE NUMBER COLLECTORS. BE ASSURED I AM NOT ONE OF THEM. MY GOAL IS NOT TO ATTAIN THE HIGHEST NUMBER IT IS TO HAVE ADDED ALL MY PHOTOS AND HAVE A NUMBER OF ZERO MAINTAINED! I THINK THEY SHOULD BE WITH FAMILY..AND THAT IS A BROAD SCOPE. ANYONE IN THE TREE IS CLOSER THAN I AM. I MERELY PHOTOGRAPHED A FEW CEMETERIES.

I am glad I could help. I have been working on cataloging the cemetery. It's not far from my house and my grandparents are buried there. I am frequently there watering flowers so I take photos when the weather is good and edit/post them in the winter. I just posted the Filgate photos. If you have any others you are looking for in that cemetery let me know. I may have them. If not, I can prioritize them when the snow melts.

Thank You so much! You must have had this one in reserve since there's no snow...hehe
Did you happen to notice what type of flag marker was there...and did it go with his grave...just curious.
|jane austin||Wells is missing too.|
Wells Quimby (1851-1924) is missing, too. His wife, Estelle Gage Quimby is there, though.
|jane austin||RE: Elizabeth Quimby|
Yes, that is Mama Harriet!!! St. Johnsbury is close by, I assume, as several members of the family passed away there! Do you think she may be there in an unmarked grave? It's unlikely that she would have been shipped elsewhere I would think.
ha... you sound like me. I had been chasing my dad's favorite aunt all over Minnesota, and I learned so much about her, but I could not find a grave. I was out taking a photo request and I was walking backwards to frame the long shot and I literally tripped backwards into a grave...
There she was. Aunt Sydney! I had no idea she was less than a mile from my home. THEN I found her parents, which are my great greats, and I never knew they were there either! What were my parents thinking? He was a Civil War soldier.
My lottery ticket didn't come in that week, though. But I did find four relatives that day ISO a photo for someone else. ;) Go for it. :)

We must be related. I'm in NW Iowa and I had that sloooowwww going until a couple of years ago when they must have received a grant because they put fiber optic lines in and now we are screamin' fast! My son from Saint Louis was impressed! I couldn't get cell reception at my house. Sprint and Verizon and ATT were playing tough guys with the towers. So Verizon ended up giving me a cell booster and it really really helped a lot! Wonder if that could work for you, too.
Thanks for the help on George. I don't have all the family records in a row yet and he doesn't match up for me yet.
I'm betting that Harriet is in California. The boys seemed to head out there in 1882 when Mom died, so she's probably just patiently waiting. I know she's not with Martin, so my guess is now with Madison Monroe.
May your service be speedy and your kindness be returned ten fold. Thank you, Anne! ;)

Hi, Anne! You must have been sitting on top of this memorial when I sent out my request! lol... And your internet is screaming! :)
I am working on the Quimby family right now and I am in love with the photos you've posted, including the one I just requested.
You seem to know a bit about the family? Or maybe you, like I, just mowed all the rows in the cemetery, taking photos as you moved along.
I am trying to figure out who the second child is on this memorial. I'm not matchng up with a 5 year old who died in the 1860's... As did so many of the family.
Dad (Aaron) is buried at the National Cemeetery, and I don't see mom at this location (She's Harriet Furnald). If you had a photo of her grave, that would be ducky. If you don't, I'm wondering if she didn't go with (at least two of) her sons when they left for California.
I started this journey from one son I found by sheer chance, and decided for some unknown reason that I needed to fill his memorial. For the past four hours, I've been sitting here working on the Quimby family. I don't know how to walk away from a family who lost at least two members in the Civil War.
At the moment I have fast internet (always subject to change) but your photo made me laugh out loud. I know it's not funny, but it's so familiar that I just lost it. ;)
Anyway, you have better things to do with your bandwidth than reading my rambling, so I will let you go.
If you know who this other child is, or have any leads on the mom, Aaron's wife Harriet, I would love to hear back from you.
Thanks so much for Elizabeth! :) And thanks for walking the cemeteries. There's no better way to honor our predecessors as we find and honor their graves! I cannot wait to get out this spring!!
Thank you so much for taking on my picture request and fulfilling it perfectly.

Thank you again Anne for your time and kindness.
|Steven Smith||Carr family photos|
Thank you for taking the time to fulfill my requests for photos of four Carr family members' grave markers in Caledonia County. Your work has clarified the internet mixup between Elmer Curtis Carr and Elmer Louis Carr who were born one day apart in January 1896.
I - and many others, I'm sure - appreciate your help very much!
Very best regards,
|m leonard||RE: Dickerman Photo|
I believe she might be buried in East Burke but I'm not sure.
