Bio and Links
Bio Photo What started out 25 years ago to be a Fletcher Family tree in and around China, Maine gradually turned to be a family tree of many folks of Kennebec County. Now some would say I'm a baby historian of the area. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries of lost souls in the area.
Happy Hunting

Rebbeca P Worth Norcross
Hi, I noticed that there is an error in Rebbeca's grave posting. If you look at the dates, she can't be the daughter of Henry Watson Worth. (Born 1844) Rebbeca was born 1814. Not sure if you are the one to fix it but if you are I would appreciate it.

Thanks again

RE: McDicken
You're very welcome. I do the grave requests for Waikumete, so do let me know if there is anyone else you would like me to look up.
Kind regards

please move the photo of Howard
Hello Mel, I have moved the Howard photo as you requested. I was uncertain if you wanted it removed from the previous memorial of Lois Cornelia Rhodes Fletcher. Please advise. Barb - Touche

RE: Samuel Brainerd
The more I look at older records, the more I'm nearly certain it is same person.

Samuel Brainerd, born in Maine, lived in Wisconsin in 1860 per census records. There are no military records with Brainerd, but records that match the description exist for Brainard. It's very likely (and common) that they misspelled his name when he enlisted and that's what "stuck" throughout his service. Find a Grave recommends that folks use the last name as it is on the stone and make a note of the different / alternate spelling to avoid duplicate entries. There are actually three entries for him int the cemetery, I've sent a request for them to be merged.

I want to say thank you! I have been working on a "Loudon project" to reconcile lists (from 1861-1865) and current plots. It's one of the 14 original National cemeteries and record keeping in the 1800s wasn't the best.

RE: Samuel Brainerd
Perhaps you can provide a plot location? The VA has no record of him buried in this National cemetery.

This is the only similar name - and he enlisted in Wisconsin (I can send you additional details / photo if you like):
DATE OF DEATH: 10/27/1861

RE: Isabella McDicken's photo
You're very welcome. Providing the plot details made it a cinch, so thank you for that. Ocean View is both a very busy and large cemetery; getting information from the office takes time and they don't provide burial details on the spot, like many other cemeteries (not their fault - they are still very helpful!). It was a pleasure to be of service. Cheers, Edie

Eri Fletcher #89720829
Eri Fletcher is my 2nd great grandfather. I have his 3 children that you have listed and I also have a James R Fletcher 1856-1934 (my 1st ggfather) and an Idella A. Fletcher 1864- These two are both on the 1870 Dexter, Me census. James is also on the 1860 census. I am wondering why you did not have these two on your memorial? Maybe the Eri you have is not the one I have. Any verification would be greatly appreciated. Sylvia

RE: Francis Fletcher Ayotte
Wish I had been with it and noticed the name before I started with the links. I would have left it for you to enter.

photo request for Ocean View
Ocean View Burial Park, owned by Diginity Memorial, is a privately owned cemetery. Dignity Memorial will not give information to a third party, you must be a relative. They feel that they could be sued for release of private information. I have the email to prove this!!!!!
If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. They would be willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member. If you cannot figure out your connection, say you are a cousin.
Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request.
Thank you,

Spratt family additions
I have added the gravesites for Howard Coddington Spratt and Alice Josephine Reed Spratt to Find a Grave. They are in Fort Rosecrans National Cemetary in California. Feel free to add them as parents to Stephen Wallace and Donald Wesley Spratt should you desire.
