Amos Barrett Photo
Thanks so much for the photos of Amos Barrett's grave stone. It is certainly unusual with the three old English letters on the top. I have no idea what they stand for.

Thanks again and many blessings to you.

RE: John Knox in Blandford Cemetery
Sorry I meant Capt William Knox 53380415. There are so many corrections outstanding, I get confused also.

John Knox in Blandford Cemetery
This memorial was recently merged to the correct cemetery. Result is that your photo of his son Justin Knox is on the memorial. Could you please remove? You do have that photo correctly on Justin's memorial. Fixing the Blandford cemeteries involves over 100 memorials, and there have been a couple minor glitches like this one. Thanks.

And thank you for all of your fantastic volunteer work in the Peru area. I see your photos quite often as I have many memorials in the town and in others close by. Jim

RE: Thank So Much for all the Magnins
That would be going beyond the call! Wonderful! I contacted the Dalton, MA town clerk, she said they have a death record for Mary Jane (Torrey)Magnin, Swartwout... I didn't know where she died. Not all of the small towns have Clerk on-line. I hope they don't do as some do and just copy the record we find in the book on-line and fill in the pretty form?
But, that's what ya get.

RE: Thank So Much for all the Magnins
Ok! Thanks You Donna! I will contact him...tell him you did the "big" favor! That way he won't have to make that drive. Thanks again! Might I ask another question? Since Peru, does not have a Town Clerk's office to obtain BDM records from (well not on-line as far as I can discern) would the County Seat be able to supply such? Have you been able to obtain these for your family in Peru and surrounding?

Thank So Much for all the Magnins
I don't know if you know James Bianco or no? But, I am so thankful for all these pictures. The 1921 date for Mary Jane Magnin is confirmed though I don't have any other info on her... or what happened to her second husband Frank Swartwout!
Thanks again! I need to contact James to tell him someone has already done this!!
Thanks again!
Did your happen to see Frank Swartwout there??

Thank you so much for the photo for Henrietta Taylor's site. Do you have any way of knowing rather she was buried there or if it is a cenotaph? I do hope you know how much you are appreciated for the time and effort put in to documenting the stone through photograph. May you be blessed for blessing others.

Murray Strout of Mount Pleasant
Hi Donna, I have finally tracked down this gentleman's grave. As I thought, it is unmarked. It is actually in a row that was "added" to the cemetery so it is on the border of where Section D abuts Section F. He is buried perpendicular to the grave for John and Carrie Strout Jones.

RE: Strout's
This was my first find-a-grave venture. The stones were not hard to find, and weather was perfect. This could become an enjoyable hobby. I'm glad to help you out.

Thank you so much. This means a lot to David. He has lost everything. To have these pictures means the world to him right now. To have flowers there was beyond what I could of hoped for. The Sheldon's were a nice family, it is sad they are all gone. Thank you for your kindness.
