RE: Doc photo and more
moved Doc's photos ... thanks again.

BTW ... you may be interested in reading about the dark side of Doc in the book best-seller that came out in 1955 about a bastard child of his ... yes ... true. title: The Greer Case. 1955 pub. author: David Peck. I gave copies to two who knew the man when they were just boys ... both of whom had their lives saved by Doc. (one of the last survivors of the Valley) ... they were stunned. quite the story. think you'll be interested in this bit of Quabbin Valley back history.

all the best wishes for the Holiday to you and your family.

hello again and best whises
Hello BD and very fast note ..

first ... to wish you and your family the very best of Holidays.

you're living in Belchertown, you might find that J. Armstrong's son, "Jr." died there in your town in like 1970s "of unknown nativity".

at this writing, it's uncertain to me that he'd lived on a cot in the Belchertown fire station or not ... am researching that aspect right now.

have interviewed witness that he did live in a chicken house on Webster Rd. in Enfield (MA) circa 1937 .. with the chickens. all of it owned by the Howe's (of said book fame, etc.). he had a cook-stove and cot in there quite comfortable. hear also that such a thing was not uncommon then back there in "the valley"..

so as such for the name Armstrong ... "the line came to its end" there in Belchertown, as the old books said back then.

again ... many thanks and all the best to you and yours.

RE: Jeremiah Armstrong
Hello BD ... and thanks much for your very kind note. yes ... will take up your idea ... but must explain that I'm a computer dummie ... so will give it my best shot and hope for the best.

by the way, I'm the guy who added all those old "Real Estate Photos" to the Quabbin Park site of the town hall and such. I tired to add some equally dated "Real Estate Photos" the State had also made of the original graveyards, but Find a Grave said 'no'. alas, might try again.

do appreciate your efforts out there at the Park. I've sent past 5+ years studying up on some of the Quabbin folks and am very glad to see that someone (like you) has located some of these folks at the Park. I appreciate your efforts.

I think you'll find Howe's outline of J. Armstrong most compelling.

thank you again and hope we can keep in touch.

Is he buried over by Eddie? I'll have to check. Don't know if there is a stone.

You have some wonderful photos attached to Elizabeth Dillon Gilmore. Do you have any idea who the other people are in the large group photo ( your caption only calls out Martin, Mary and Elizabeth )?
My great, great grandfather was Patrick Dillon, Elizabeth's brother.

General John R Alison
I would like to put a request out for the General's grave but the limit of photos have been reached. I was wondering if you could remove one photo so I may request his grave.

I stumbled on this site today and saw that you took a picture of my Dad's grave. Thank you so much for honoring him that way.

Mabel Gray
Hi! I noticed you have a memorial and tombstone photo for a Mabel Gray # 89318355, wife of Aaron Gray. Her first name is actually Isabel. Her marker spells it Ifabel with the old English S that looks like an f. She and Aaron are my 5th great grandparents. Could you please change her first name to Isabel and add her maiden name Lucore to the memorial you have created? Thanks so much for posting this information.

I tried to get a photo of Gen. Alison's marker for you today at Arlington, but even though the burial was in October 2011, there is still no marker in place. That generally indicates that the family is going to put in their own memorial in place of the standard military one. I did post a picture of the temporary marker. Please feel free to ask me to delete it. I would recommend making your request again in another few months, maybe the stone will be in by then.

Thomas Conkey
My mistake, While checking the records their is a Thomas Conkey II who died May 29 1854 age 65 who was reburied at Quabbin. The cemetery records refer to other bodies in common interest Thomas Conkey I. I'll correct everything. John

St John's Cemetery Fall River
I need to know if the Dennis and Catherine Harrington you are looking for in St. John's Cemetery in Fall River are Dennis and Catherine the children of Jeremiah Harrington of Fall River - or the Dennis and Catherine of Cork County Ireland that have a stone in memory of them in St. John's. I can photograph both stones - but if you are looking for Jeremiah's kids, I have Census and other records I could send you. Contact me at -
