Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began visiting local cemeteries for my family history and quickly changed to photographing as much of a cemetery as I could and posting the photos or entering a new memorial if there wasn't one before. I hope to help those looking for their ancestors, and also to preserve and document the gravesite. So many stones are deteriorating rapidly, and natural or man made catastrophes are endangering some cemeteries. It is vital that we preserve this information for future generations. I also find it very peaceful to walk in our local cemeteries, and a connection in knowing that many years ago they walked the same ground and lived their lives here.

If I have maintenance of a memorial that is related to you and you wish to manage it, please do not hesitate to let me know and I will gladly transfer to you. I believe they belong with family.

Feel free to use my photos as long as it is for family history or genealogy related matters.

RE: Achsah Curtis # 140872866
Hi Sharon, it is very confusing. She is buried with her 2nd husband. When her name was engraved on his stone it was engraved as "Achsah Jenkins Curtis." [Achsah (first name), Jenkins (middle name) and Curtis (her final married name).] So technically her name is Achsah Jenkins Hinckley Ewer Holway Curtis. Trust me - this one threw me for a loop! I was determined to figure it out. I hope this clarifies the confusion! Best, Pam
P.S. Do you like the new version of findagrave? I'm not to happy with it.

Henry Betz Inquiry
Hello Sharon:
Are you a relative of Henry Betz? I had a great-great uncle, Arthur H. Porter, that was married to Julia Betz (or Bettz?), 1st married to Emil Betz. The Betz had a son, Henry; other children: Emil, Julius, Charley (Charles?) and daughter, Elsie. I think Henry and Elsie were born in the USA; the oldest children were likely born in Switzerland or Germany, prior to 1894 (immigration yr.). Arthur & Julia Betz Porter lived in Farmington, CT, 1930 (census); Arthur lived there, 1940, a widower. I'm looking for information about Arthur H. Porter (a grave site?).
Thank you, Sharon,
L C Porter Binder

Sergeant Theodore A Pendleton was a member of the 2nd Connecticut Heavy Artillery Regiment. The source of this information is from the book The Story of the 2nd Connecticut Heavy Artillery Regiment by Richard W Smith. Thank you for creating the memorial and all you do for Find-A-Grave. JIM LAWSON
