Just wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work. Coming from Michigan in November to visit this and another cemetery with my 89 year old father-in-law to show him his first family members that came over from England, thanks to your hard work.

Sgt. Thomas Richardson's wife Mary
Asking about Sgt. Thomas Richardson's wife Mary Stimpson. First, thank you for posting the headstone photo for Sgt. Thomas Richardson. By any chance is his wife Mary beside him? If so could a photo be added to her Memorial #53716544?

Sgt. Thomas Richardson's Memorial is - Old South Burying Ground

Massachusetts, USA
Plot: C109
Thanking you in advance for your response, Sandy

The Locator
Prospect Hill Cemetery
I created a memorial for Ethni Harding (memorial #169266854) whose info is on the bottom of his fathers stone (memorial #62654278). You added the photo of the stone to memorial #62654278 and I would like for you to add the same photo to the memorial that I created #169266854. Thank you

John Pierpont
Thanks Bill for adding the bio info for John Pierpont.
And I agree with you about these surname spellings- Pierpont/ Pierrpont/ Pierepont/ Pierpoint can drive a person nuts. It should be up to all of us to search on findagrave using as many variations as you can think of (and you still won't find them all).
Thanks again.

RE: Samuel Kidder
I was wondering if it was the old calendar that was used. You can decline those if you want. I thought there might be something to show a conversion but couldnt find anything.

Rev Benjamin Wadsworth Memorial# 50189387
I am a descendant of Capt. Samuel Wadsworth # 52300536 (via his son, Deacon Ebenezer Wadsworth # 29125652 ), and he is also the father of Rev. Benjamin Wadsworth. I was looking at the photo you have on Benjamin's memorial, and if you added a dark long wig and a beard to my dad...they could be twins. It is funny how family resemblances are carried down over the generations.

John A. Tufts
I saw the page you made for John A. Tufts. I am wondering if you are related to that family?
I was looking at old family bibles on EBay and saw one with record of John Tufts marriage in it and others in that family tree.
Then I went looking for someone who might be related in case they would be interested in this priceless old family bible.
Just search EBAY with this and you will find it=

Josiah Blood Memorial# 24079780
I am looking to see if you are of any relation to Josiah and Mary Torrey Blood. They are my 7th gr grands and I'm working on making Find A Grave connections back to direct line parents and adding as many of the children in each generation as I can...
Just thought I'd ask before I actually got to these two :-)

RE: Rev. Joseph Belcher
Thanks, Bill. It's ok with me to leave it as is, as the inscription is nicely rendered. It's part of history.

You often can't tell which is cenotaph and which is real, anyway.

They are common in Cleveland, affecting multiple of my hubbies' Frenches buried in Lake View Cem. up there. The Findagrave person said not to delete one, to let them both exist, simply mark as possibility of cenotaph and, if desired, link the two pages.

(There had been a grave-robbing incident involving an Edwin French, so three cemeteries were ultimately involved for that one person as the body had been moved around. We let it go at two cemeteries and did not bother documenting the third, as the basic idea had been communicated.)
