Elsie Dodge
My sister and I went to the Novi Cemetery today to look for Elsie Dodge. We checked all the graves and did not find Elsie Dodge. The cemetery was in very bad shape. Many headstones were broken or laying face down and we could not move them. I am very sorry but maybe someone else may find what I could not.

Photo Request for James & Elizabeth Orr
You had requested a photo of these two graves about 10 months ago at which time cemetery staff indicated to me that they had no record of these two burials. However I think I have tracked down the location of their grave site in Mount Olivet so their records could be incomplete.
I'll try to locate their graves next weekend, weather permitting, and if successful I'll be able to fulfill your requests.

Sarah Eaton Photo Request
Chris, I have walked the Old Spencer Cemetery twice in the last 3 weeks looking for this and other gravestones. I was not able to find Sarah's stone. This is an old cemetery with many unreadable and missing stones. Unfortunately, Sarah's appears to be one of them.

I did find an almost unreadable stone for (I think) Zira Eaton who died Sept. 7 or 17, 1877 and his wife Sally who died Apr. 19, 1851 or 54.

If you have any info on these two individuals and would like to create memorial pages, I will post the pictures.

I have marked Sarah's request as having a problem. You might consider canceling the request and putting a note on her memorial page that the stone no longer exists. Your call.

RE: Stacey Challender
RE: Stacey Challender
Hi yes Stacey & Elizabeth are my fourth great-grandparents (Challender is my middle name). You can follow most of my line from my grandfather Willard Alton Challender (#6071304) back to Samuel L. Challender (1802-1859) (#38929009) who was a son of Stacey & Elizabeth. How do you tie in?

My 3rdgreat grandAunt is Charlotte Challender daughter of Stacey and Elizabeth. She married William Charles Carman son of John Carman and Charlotte F Wells.
So we are realted! I have done most of the memorials at Highland cemetery with help from another family memeber Jay Wright. I've been there about 4 times in the last year working on photos. Lately I have gone back cleaning stones that are non readable at the time. Jay has the McBride Cemetery book of Highland that shows all buried there about 30 years ago.
The sad part is that Stacey's stone so far is no where to be found. Elizabeth stone I found sitting in a pile of stones that were knock over/fallen and moved to one location.
We have one area where most of our family is buried except for Andrew Challender they are a little farther away. But what I am thinking is there is an open area next to us where I think everyone is buried but stones fallen over or buried in ground. My next trip will be to take some supplies to look for buried stones. Maybe I will get lucky.

Stacey Challender
You requested a photo of Stacey in the Highland Cemetery, Highland County, Ohio. Is this for you or someone else? He is part of my family and I have been doing the photos in Highland and his wife Elizabeth I posted the photo.

RE: Morse Cemetery Question
The oldest graves in the Morse Cemetery are Betsey Russell d. Jul. 26, 1811. The next oldest would be ____, Noah d. Sep. 18, 1816.

Jonathan Eames, A Revolutionary soldier. (no dates readable).
Benj. W. Patten, A Revolutionary soldier.
"ME MIL. REV. WAR" (no dates).

I believe I have all the photos of these graves in this cemetery. If you want any, let me know.

Was Jonathan Russell (1759 - 1843) a military man? Capt perhaps?

Jonathan & Betsey Russell's photos

I fulfilled your request for Jonathan 115182053 (d 1843) and Betsey Russell 115183687 (d 1840). Also I see that there is another Betsey Russell 115183435 (d 1811?)

Now I am confused as who is who. Maybe this is a help to you:

If you would like photos of the other Russells, a total of 12, or any other people in the Morse cemetery, please request them in the same manner as you did these two.

Rilla Harding Child
Hi Chris,

I made the corrections that you sent to me regarding Rilla Harding Child. Makes sense given that her father's middle name is Harding. I think that I have a few other suggestions from you in my inbox that need attention. I'll work on them as soon as possible.

Maybe at some point I will find myself in Boston. I'd love to stop by the NEHGS to check out the library and to meet you.

Edward John Cullinane #99212139
Hi Chris,

Edward John Cullinane is my brother-in-law's great uncle. Here's the information I pulled from his death certificate: widower; home address 8 Fainwood Circle, Cambridge; died July 16, 1943 @ 66 years; struck in face by nozzle of a fire hose - skull/face fracture; worked for Cambridge Water Dept.; Calvary Cemetery Waltham; son of Edward Cullinane & Catherine Murphy; wife Hannah Ryan.

The birthdates for Edward and Catherine came from the 1901 Ireland Census. I found them living at house #6, Dromfeagh, Kinneigh, Cork. Be careful here! There is another Edward Cullinane living with wife, Catherine, at house #8, Shiplough, Dunmanway, Cork. The key difference between the two: the Dromfeagh Cullinanes have a son, Jeremiah (# 99195410), who came to the US after the census was taken and is also buried in Calvary Cemetery. Jeremiah is clearly Edward John Cullinane's brother since he has the same parents listed on his death certificate.

Edward and Catherine are also in the 1911 Ireland Census (their children Thomas & Ellen match up nicely with the 1901 Census); however, their listed ages are different than those in the 1901 Census. The 1911 Census would put their birth years at about 1843 for Edward and 1845 for Catherine.

Not sure if Edward and Catherine came to the US, but I doubt it. The fact that they stayed as late as 1911 (and had younger children) points to them remaining in Ireland. Whatever the case, I haven't been able to find them here.

Hope this helps. Happy Ancestor Hunting!

Note you have his middle name and death cert. Can I assume you are related? I ask because he was a g grand uncle, although, I never met him. Curious about indicated spouse, apparently a 2nd wife, as his 1st wife was Lucy E Richard (2/1886 - 13 Feb 1912). Grant was born in PA, not NY. Any info would be helpful. Jim W. (

enter School Cemetery in Marshalltown, IA
Chris, I stopped by the Center School Cemetery just outside of Marshalltown (where I live). Very small cemetery with maybe 75 graves. I checked every gravestone that I could read with no matches for Stephen Shanks. However, there were 10-20 very old stones that were small, broken and often sunk way into the ground. All were unreadable. Sorry, but I did try.

Katherine Carroll
Hi There Chris,

I looked for Katherine today at St John's in Worcester MA. They do have a Catherine Carroll d 1918 in Section Nativity according to the record in the cemetery office. However the stone has a Catherine (Hickey)Carroll b 1861 d 1910 so I am confused. You can reach me at and I can email you the stone pics and if this is the right Catherine or her possible mother....the cemetery only had the one Catherine Carroll however.
What info do you have that Katherine (Mahoney) Carroll is buried at St John's? I could ask for a lot card next time out. -Mary

Eliza Ward Healy
Hi Chris, I was fairly certain that there was no footstone (or monument) for Eliza, but went this morning to double check. There were some that on the previous trip were unclear. I've got them all clear now. There is not one for Eliza. There is plenty of space in the section with Sylvia and Lemuel Jr. Look at the caption with the photo I posted to see placement. It is concievable that Eliza's is sunk in the ground, like Lemuel Jr's almost is.

I've added a couple of new Healys - Seraph and Lemuel Sr.

?? Perhaps you can identify - At the Second tower – grouped with the footstones in the back is a fallen stone (of the standard rounded top kind), the back says (I think) "Erected by Co. C. 4th Battalion Infn. M. V.". Do you have any idea which of the folks on the tower it might belong to - George Healey, John Steere, or Edwin Spencer?

Thanks ASB

Mary Gookin and Cambridge's Old Burial Ground
Hi Chris,
At my request some time ago FindAGrave put a note on the front page of Cambridge's Old Burial Ground's page letting people know about the modern list of extant stones that is online. Unfortunately recently someone moved it to the cemetery website spot (making it look as if it is the cemetery website instead) and removed the note. Mary Gookin isn't on the list.

In my years visiting Cambridge's Old Burial Ground I have only found two footstones that weren't on the list (they are next to each other at the edge of the cemetery, and their matching headstones don't appear to have survived) and no headstones that weren't on the list, so I would say the list is pretty thorough. Whether she is buried there and doesn't have a headstone that has survived or was buried in one of the crypts/tombs and possibly never had a headstone as a result, I cannot tell you.

I use the following a lot in conjunction with the cemetery. I don't remember offhand if thy are at NEHGS, but you can use them to supplement your research if you aren't on site:

Epitaphs from the Old Burying-Ground in Cambridge by William Thaddeus Harris (published 1845)
There are a fair number of headstones in this book that haven't survived to the present.

Records of the Church of Christ at Cambridge in New England, 1632-1830
Even on-site the Andover-Harvard Theological Library prefers one use the transcriptions rather than the original, and they say they have found it to have very few errors.

Good luck in your search,
Liz Loveland

RE: Kent Willard Challender

If you are truly curious, and if you will send me a copy of Kent's Texas Death Certificate, I'll gladly proceed further.

I think I saw where Kent died in Hays County, Texas, just south of Austin. The Cook-Walden folks have another large cemetery in South Austin, called Forest Oaks. I'm suspecting that he may currently be residing there!

If you have no interest in taking this search any further, please remove your photo request from Find A Grave.

Kent Willard Challender

The folks at Cook-Walden apparently are unable to locate any records on this guy, as being buried in Capital Parks Cemetery.

I have not searched for him, but I shall as soon as you can confirm you belief that he is actually buried in Capital Parks.

Gunderson Note
Hi Chris, Are you are that you can leave a message for the originator of those memorials and 1. ask for transfer if family as defined by Find A Grave and 2. send information to the current owner requesting they add the information, if they won't relinquish the memorial. Beth

RE: Petrine & Gustave Gunderson
Yes Robert Mitchum was my friend's grandfather's first cousin. I didn't put up the memorial of my friend's great-grandfather, so I can't link him to Gustav & Petrina. Their son was Charles Oscar Gunderson (1892-1959), grave #37043174. You can also see my virtual cemetery for "Gunderson Ancestors." Charles' son Norman (my friend's grandfather and Mitchum's first cousin) is grave #105695073 . Is your friend a granddaughter of Petrina's daughter Gertrude (Gunderson) Tetreault? I have several generations of the Gundersons in Oslo & in Østre Toten, Norway before Gunderson was their surname when they were using "patronymic" last names. Chris

Would you kindly email the cemetery at to inquire about the section/plot details and whether they can confirm there is a stone. I walked most of the cemetery today and did not see a stone. If they email you a map, perhaps you can share it with me.
