Levi, #168891970
Thanks for posting the marker photo for Joan Tower Dawson, #140224113.
It took a while to find the identity of the third name on the marker, "1991-Levi-2006".
Turns out Levi was Joan's cat.
So that no one else would be as confused as I was, I made a memorial for Levi.
Please add the marker photo you posted to Joan's memorial to the one I made for Levi, #168891970.

Transfer please: #69958414 & #69958494
Hi Hammer,

Would you kindly transfer management of my Greatx3 Grandparents (William J. Pedman & Sarah Chessman Clark -Find A Grave #s above) to me?

Along w/ basic research over 35 years, I have been to their graves in Weymouth. I have spent years researching William. I have been to Bermuda, where he was born, to: the Church in which his parents were married (I have a painting of it), & to to the very old Church in which William's Mother was baptized in 1800. I also went to the Spotsylvania battlefield in VA, where he was injured during the Civil War, & the Monument to the 1st Regiment, MA Heavy Artillery, in which he served.

I would greatly appreciate it, as I feel that Family Members should be managed by Family.

Thank you very much.

Charles & Nancy Spring
I believe the Charles and Nancy Spring you have Find A Grave in theFort Hill Cemetery in Plymouth are the following:
Charles Spring was born on 1824 in Saco Maine, son of Lewis and Eliza Spring. He began sailing as a cabin boy at ten years of age and eventually moved to East Weymouth and Hingham and was employed as a painter. He married Nancy H. Remington (b. 1826) in Hingham on August 7, 1849. Massachusetts State Police Chief Constable Edward J. Jones appointed him a state police deputy constable for Plymouth County in August 1870. He served for a very short time before being appointed a deputy sheriff in Plymouth County. He also served as a town constable, night police, and truant officer in Hingham and as a Nantasket Beach Railroad Policeman. Charles Spring died at age 74 on March 29, 1900 and was still serving as a deputy sheriff at the time of his death. His wife Nancy died in 1902 and they are both buried in Forth Hill Cemetery.

Richard Ray
Abbie A Lincoln
she was married to George Herbert Davis on 18 Jun 1873.

George Herbert Davis survived her and married secondly, Annie Davis Raymond on 6 Jan 1892.

George Lincoln in Volume III, page 14 shows Abbie as Bela Lincoln and Abigail A Newcomb child.

Through the Massachusetts Vital Records by virtue of the named parents of George Herbert Davis it names the marriage to Annie Davis Raymond.

I have found that there is another Find-a-Grave started Feb. 17, 2009 for Dorothy Y (Sanford) Fernald. #3394641. Yours, however is more complete. I don't know how they handle this, unless one of you requests ownership of the other. I don't know if either of you is family to anyone mentioned at this gravesite. Dorothy is my father's sister.

Mother of Dorothy
Anna Olive (Ryder) Sanford, #5729718, is the mother of Dorothy (Sanford) Davis Fernald, #70714427. I appreciate all you do. Thanks again

RE: Maiden name
Thank you so much for all you have done. Davis and Fernald children agreed on the names for the monument, so Fernald is fine with me. It's the name Social Security went by. I'm still looking for her son Alan Davis who died in 2014.
Thanks again.

One more request
Thank you for the wonderful things you do for those of us who can't be there. I have added Elaine Ada (Davis) Waugh to Find-a-Grave #145708622 and was hoping you could transfer your photos and link her to her husband, Bud Waugh, #70714417, and her mother Dorothy Yvonne (Sanford) Fernald. #70714427. I'd like you to have photo credit. I see Elaine's name on the monument, but no additional info. Thank you so much.

Added by TOY on Apr 28, 2015 9:08 AM

Maiden name
My father's sister Dorothy Yvonne Davis Fernald had 2 married names on the monument. She had children by both marriages. Her maiden name was Sanford. I'd like to link her to family. Her father, (my grandfather) is #5729704.

# 88185090 Inf Dau of Jeremiah Chubbuck
Find A Grave Memorial# 88185090. Hello, I wonder if you might have another photo that reveals the dates on this headstone, that seems to be covered by grass or partially buried in the soil? Or would you be willing to clear away some soil and grass in order to take a new photo? Apparently mother Mary lost several infants, perhaps to boys and two girls. I don't want to duplicate, so dates would be very helpful. Thank you for your consideration.

Please add the grave marker photo you posted for
Sidney Dawson, #94600971, to the memorial I made for his third wife Joan Frances Tower Page Dawson, #140224113. It has both of their names and dates.

Sloan - # 128188143
Hello --

Appreciate your taking and posting the photograph of the headstone for William Sloan, his wife, and daughters. I have two requests for your consideration:

1) Transfer to me as this is my brother-in-law's family. (Unless, of course, you are also related).

2) I see you indicated this posting was in response to a request. Might you be able to share the requester's information with me. I am researching this family of my brother-in-law and have hit several brick walls because MA doesn't have many public records on line.

Thanks for your consideration!

Thank you Hammer. I didnt realize you sent that to me. My apologies I have never asked for a memorial to be transferred. Most of my Dads family is buried there.

In fact, Harry Hutchison is my Grandmother and the Robinson's are my Great Grandparents. Thomas is my Uncle.

Hi, my co-worker is Danielle Cope-Sullivan. She's on my Friends list there.
