My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

I wonder if the Rev. William Emerson on this marker is the one who lived 1769 - 1811. There were several Rev. William Emersons. The one I mentioned is my 3rd cousin 6 generations removed, his father was also a Reverend, and his grandfather (all Williams) and several cousins (also all Williams)living nearby but not in Concord.

I also wonder what the connection is between all the men on the marker? Joseph Merriam 1677 is a 1st cousin 11 generation removed.

Heather, I wondered too about why their names are listed, and not 2 of my direct lines, Nathaniel and Eleazer Ball. Maybe the archivist at the Library would know. I'll have to remember to ask the next time I go. Thanks for your comment.
