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, Wisconsin, 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.

Hamilton Cemetery and Manasseh Cutler, the most accomplished of all my ancestors


Above stone is for my ancestor, Manasseh Cutler
Born:  May 13, 1742, Killingly, Windham Co., Connecticut
Died:  July 28, 1823, Hamilton, Essex Co., Massachusetts

I wrote about him in January 2010, my post was titled, "Manasseh Cutler is probably the most accomplished of all my ancestors." My last paragraph stated, "He died in his eight-second year having been a botanist, lawyer, parson, doctor, school teacher, merchant, chaplain in the Army and a legislator!"

Additional photos from previous blog post.

There are two crosses of war veterans. Another one is opposite the above one, across the road. I requested the names of the soldiers, and if I get them, I will post here.
Mr. Cutler was the pastor of Hamilton Congregational Church for 52 years.
The beautiful yellow house is next to the church and is where he lived.
