Electricians and others reported seeing bones, coffins and broken stones in piles. Why is it that the local authorities did not look into this.

I;m glad it helped and I hope it helps with your search. Gogle and Babelfish can only go so far,. They can translate the word, but at ptesent, they can't structure the sentence to make any coherent sense.

Thank you for your reply dear Terri O'Connell. Mr. Porai-Koshets from Kiev gave me link with your anouncement of your grandfather research. He claims he has information on Anatoly Petrovich Porai Koshets. If you'll write me in private, I can give you his email for direct contact. I insist on private for antispam reasons.
As for me, yes I am Ukrainian geologist and researchin mainly family of Counts of Holy Rome Empire Morkov (AKA Morcow, Morkoff) and related to them families. Thank you.

Hi Terri,

My Richmondl ine is actually two - I have the John Richmond (1594-1664) who died in Taunton MA, and his son Edward (1632-1696) who married Abigail Davis. This line is all through SE MA, RI and then eastern CT.

My otherl ine is in Wiltshire in England, and was Richman until James Richman (1821-1912) brought his family to New England in 1856 and settled in Putnam CT.
