Griggs family
Carol, while I would like to have the others buried there but there may be someone much more closely related to them. I haven't done much research on the family as I'm not well for some time now.
I do know someone who has a closer relationship but refuses to accept any information we have found about her family and will only accept what a very old relative tells her!
Life is strange sometimes isn't it?

John Griggs burial
I was looking for a different family member and came across John Griggs by accident!

He was the husband of my Caroline Ketchum....this is really cool to find. I can now attach her to her husband. Thanks a bunch!

PS I see that you have photo requests for several Colvin's. Colvin in my maiden name. We might be related.

Thank you for adding the death certificate for Elmina Colvin. It has provided more accurate information for my family tree.

Burial: Cushing Cemetery, Mattapoisett, Plymouth, Massachusetts

Thank you for the updated info. I have corrected it, give him a birth place and gave you credit.

May I ask what drew you to this cemetery? Are you looking for anyone else within the area?

I have a couple of people that are following me, pretty creepy. They now have some 15,000 names in 2 years and they will go to the same cemetery within 2 days of me being there to try to finish it before I do and they only take names and dates. With their family they do a little more work. It can take me an hour to decipher a 1700's headstone due to wear. They have never written down an inscription, which I think it just as important. I have found a young boy who has a headstone in Mass. and in New Hampshire with a different middle initial. And my distant linage has a family buried close to me and all three, husband, wife and daughter, have their last name spelled differently. I have slowly been learning and doing better as time goes by. I don't have anyone to assist me.

Hope you have a wonderful week,

RE: Salisbury Pix
I live in the area, so if you find some Salisburys you are interested just post and if I don't have them I can get them. Just remember the season, it might take a little while. Right now the weather is good, but it can change very quickly.

RE: Salisbury Lot
I wish they would take into account that the requests have been fullfilled. I understand they don't want folks requesting thousands at a time, but there must be some way to reach a happy medium.

RE: Salisbury Lot
I also added a photo of the cemetery. You won't be able to see that until findagrave approves it.
Sarah L. has a daughter named Ruth for which there is no memorial (or I might have missed it).

RE: Gilbert Salisbury
I have alot of photos in my files, but would rather spend the time photographing than setting up memorials.
But I am always willing to post photos to findagrave memorials. I look forward to helping...

RE: Erastus J. & other Colvins
Hi, Carol -

Have posted pictures for the South Moriah Cem. Colvin clan. I'm not happy with the quality of some of them, will get better ones in the Spring when conditions are better & replace. Check 'em out when you get a chance.

I very much doubt that I have a listing of "all" the stones that Erastus made; The unique design keeps turning up where I least expect. In addition to Vets. stones funded by the county, he used the design for private sales to civilians with something other than the cannon/cannonballs/star G.A.R imagery in the circle at top - flowers, willows, etc.

Will gladly send you MY list of Erastus-made stones if we can figure aout a way to exchange e-or-postal mail addresses without posting them openly here.

Intersting & puzzling development is that on same monument as Esick & Willard Colvin appears Memorial# 121216481.

The fourth face of the Colvin/West monument is blank - perhaps when Erastus the stonecutter died there was no-one to inscribe his name on it.

HI! & thanks for the info. on Erastus. Weather permitting (wch it may not do 'til Spring) I'll take a photo of Esick's stone for you- I live locally & know just where it is. Best, Greg

Cousin Esick B Colvin # 67614170
Hello! Was intrigued by the info you've provided on this memorial & thought- if this is not 'old news' to you - You might be interested in some info on Esick's son Erastus- who was a marble cutter and dealer with a shop & dwelling located just across the road and a little south of the South Moriah Cemetery. From the mid 1880's up until his death (after 1900/before 1910)he had a series of contracts with the Essex County Board of Supervisors to provide gravestones of a specific design for Civil War Veterans a couple of examples being Memorials #s 44818014 & 44553863. I have documented over 225 stones of this design in Essex County made by Erastus or at least by his shop. See 1880 & 1900 Moriah, Essex Co. Census. If you are interested, and we can figure a way to do so without publicly posting e-mail addresses, would be happy to send you more information. would be interested if youhave discovered where Erastus is buried - so far I have been unable to locate his grave anywhere in Moriah. Best regards -

Hi Carol: Found your page today while surfing and in reading your profile, realized that we not only share some names but partial resume's . Upon retirement, I began freelancing images (photos) to a local newspaper, this expanded to column writing, { genealogical } after chats with my editor. Your contention that inaccuracies exist in most on-line info is so true. Sadly, many folks today are collectors, not researchers. They want to believe that they are descendants of movie stars, entertainers etc. There are so many variables that pertain to family HISTORY, it is amazing that we have the amount of factual info that we do. Please contact me here or via Bob, thats my old AKA.

Me again. That message went through without the obscenity warning, so now I'll try it with my surname.

Checking things out #1
Hi Carol,

I just sent a message to someone who had written to me on my find-a-grave page and got an automatic message from find-a-grave saying that my message was under review. This is happening to me more and more at other websites because my surname doesn't pass muster with the obscenity censors. So, I'm going to send you two messages, one signed just with my first name, and one with both names to see if there's a difference in this new vetting process.
I hope you don't mind.
