RE: Memorial 142818210 - Alexander Dizer
That would be so very much appreciated, weather permitting, I understand! FYI, I was found the son of Samuel K. and Margaret recently and visited him. He's 88 and living in Florida. He recalls that the headstone has names and dates for his father, mother, grandmother and Uncle Alexander. He does not remember any other stones. I will be sure to share the pictures with him if you are able to get them. Again thank you!

RE: Memorial 142818210 - Alexander Dizer
Hi Pupdawg,

At your suggestion I finally got around to contacting Nancy at Mt. Feake cemetery. She was very, very helpful. Found that Alexander had actually been moved from a single grave to the grave he is currently in with his mother, brother, and sister in-law. I also asked her about any other head stones and she actually sent someone out there to look. This is what Nancy had to say... " There is a central monument (with names on it) in the middle of the lot and a slant marker in the back with Alexander’s name on it."

I'm guessing that the names are maybe on the back of the monument that you took the picture of. The "slant marker" is what has me confused.

Thank you for your help.

Now I'm not sure. I did show a Caroline Adams dying in 1862 being buried at Mount Auburn, but now I don't think it's the same person as the death certificate. I'll have to look into it. Thanks for letting me know.

I hoped that I thanked you for your reply and the information that you sent? I would very much appreciate you exploring to see if there are more markers for this family. How odd it seems that if Margaret (the mother) and son were buried at the same time why there would only be a marker for Alexander?

Again, thank you!

I read the Facebook article from NPR about the two homeless men who were buried with the assistance from a local funeral home and students from Roxbury Latin Boys' school. Very sad. Thanks for creating a memorial page for each. Hopefully, some day family members will find them.

Thank you for the information. I would appreciate it very much if you are able to find headstones for the remainder of the family there. I am relived to find that my Gr. Gr. Grandmother found a final resting place with two of her sons. Thank you!

RE: Memorial 142818210 - Alexander Dizer
Thank you so much, I will put in her information and do a photo request. I've been looking for my great grandmother for some time now. Margaret was from Glasgow Scotland, her husband Robert was a master mariner and they were married there in 1864 and they came to the US. Robert was lost at sea in 1883 leaving her with 5 children ages 5 to 17 to raise. I lost track of her after the 1940 census when she was living alone and working as a "servant" to a "private family". After that nothing. I'm happy to find that she is resting in peace with family! Thank you!

PS I believe that Margaret may have had a little vanity. In the early census records and in her marriage record her birth year would calculate to ca 1939. In later census records it fluctuates by a few years ... anywhere from 5 to 10. I guess that would be a woman's prerogative! :-)

Memorial 142818210 - Alexander Dizer

I am researching my Gr Grandmother, Margaret Stewart Dizer (ca 1839-ca 1912) and find that you have listed and photograph of the headstone for her son Alexander. I have been told that Margaret and her son Samuel K may also be buried in this cemetery. I was wondering if you have any knowledge of this? Thank you!

RE: Belyea's at Woodlawn
My pleasure. I accidentally came upon this grave while pursuing another matter. It is at the top of the hill near the intersection of Oakwood and Larch Avenues.

John Nolen's Mother # 155798544
PupDawg, At the very bottom of the rock stone is an inscription for mother of John Nolen. It appears to be 1838-1925 under name Matilos Hom?. Would you please add that rock stone to this site. I wish I could make out the inscription with last name, probably her maiden name. Richard

RE: Damons at First Parish Cemetery, Norwell
I just recalled that there is a Norwell Historical Society in might search by that name and find their home page with information on how to contact them; they might be able to help you locate the cemetery index you are looking for? Linda

RE: Damons at First Parish Cemetery, Norwell
My source is personal observation. I see Davis d. 5 Nov 1888 at Boston (NEHGS Database), but no cemetery is listed on his death record. Davis m. twice: 1) Lucy Damon 18 Nov 1838 at Scituate, and 2) Ruth Damon 19 Aug 1865 at Boston. Lucy d. of Typhoid 22 Nov 1864 in Boston. Ruth d. 1872. Both Lucy and Ruth were daughters of Luther and Alice (Nash) Damon. Memorials for both Lucy and Ruth are in this cemetery, listed by James Bianco, and he also lists from personal visits. I see no reason Davis would not also be buried here since both his wives are and he was b. here in Scituate, plus parents also buried here. But....I
cannot confirm. I will not be back to that area until next August, may or may not have the time to
browse First Parish....sorry I can't be of more help here....Linda
