Thank you so much for the transfer of George Seagrave to me. I know Burrillville since my grandfather was born there, but I would never have found this cemetery. First time I've ever heard of it. Again, thank you!

I am sorry you had trouble taking the pictures. I think what we are doing with Find A Grave is important for people researching their ancestors.

|Mary S.||RE: re: White photo|
David was just thrilled that there was a memorial (especially with pic!) at all. :-)
He liked her so much. She was very quiet at first, then, as they got to know each other, she opened up a bit and they started having fun and she got more comfortable about asking if he'd stop at the pharmacy or to pick up milk or whatever.
When she was hospitalized the last time, he was devastated, as he really looked forward to their time together. It's the down side of doing the volunteer driving, I guess, and made him wonder whether he wanted to continue, but he still loves doing it.
Thanks, again, Carol - and I know what you mean about meaning to stop and take new photos sometimes, but I've always got so many going, that it just doesn't make sense, unless it's a REALLY BAD photo - and that one certainly wasn't! :-)
I've now photographed all of St. Pat's (well, there is one section I'd like to go back through, just to be sure I got them all), and we're back to Pine Grove. I'll definitely be busy right through the winter with all this backlog!
All the best,

OK, thanks for the tip! I wasn't sure how long it took them to put new stones up.

|LaDonna & Richard McKelvey||RE: re Jane Baker # 83987196|
I can not submit the edit with just the mother's information until my original submit for her is denied. So if you will deny my request I will submit the mother.
My line of ancestry:
Richard a McKelvey, Richard Dean McKelvey, Sidney McKelvey, Mary Anna Francis, Elisha Francis and Margaret Wood Alexander Francis
Margaret (Wood) was first married to Robert Alexander and had at least 2 children who survived before Robert drowned in South Carolina 1818. She then married my gg grand father Elisha Francis who was widowed in 1820.
They raised Margaret's two daughters Martha and Jane who married Baker. They also had two daughters of their own. One was Mary Anna Francis my great grandmother who married Joshua McKelvey. They moved to California.
I have not located Robert's grave. Margaret and Robert lived in Smithfield at the time of his death.

|FrancisMattesonLine||RE: Dutemple, Fry & Wilcox|
Awesome! That's what it's all about, to help others.
RI has a newer database that has more info on the stones, and Mary Wilcox definitely was Mary Fry wife of George D Wilcox. Wrong estimated bdate tho, she was born about 1825 per the 1850 census record, and the parents were both deceased well before 1844.
I wish they would not just disregard all the work done by James Newell Arnold in the early 1900's in favor of "current surveys", the stones were probably much more legible back then, and not so overgrown or unable to be found.

Thanks for the new photo of my grandmother's grave. I hadn't visited her memorial online for quite some time, so had not replaced the previous photo with a higher res one. Appreciate it!

Carol add my uncle to your list who was buried there in June. He was Fred Kampfhenkel U.S. Navy. It may take a while before there is a marker.

Just thinking....Wouldn't it be nice if findagrave had an U. S. flag icon that could be added to Veterans memorials the way flowers show up in the index. I like to honor the veterans too whenever I can.

Hello Carolyn -
I noticed that it appeared that you have two for the same memorial :
Thought you might want to combine them.

Hello Carolyn -
You mentioned that you traced your family quite a ways back.... I, too, am a Lee, though I believe mine showed up in the States in the very early 1800. My family pretty much stayed in NYC - what about you?

No, not related. Just happened to spot the maiden name while looking for something else.
Have a great weekend and thank you for your dedication to Find A Grave!

Many thanks for the Stetson transfers. This will be a difficult family to research due to ages and scant records available, but I'll see what I can find! Linda

|Linda Hiross||Stetsons at Mineral Springs|
Carolyn...I would gladly accept "the rest of the Stetsons" you have listed at Mineral Springs if you would prefer to transfer them. I can research them and see what I can find. Salisburys would be outside my area of research and no need for me to work with them.
Again, thanks for all your contributions! Linda

Have been trying to get back to you but Find A Grave site has been down for 3 days and some functions still aren't working; am trying to play catch-up. I am not related directly to these Stetson or Salisbury's but am a researcher with the Stetson Kindred trying to update our descendent files. Many thanks for the transfers and you conscientious work!

|FrancisMattesonLine||Dean Nicerkson entry PW004|
Carolyn, when you put in the entries for Phebe Ann Ward Nickerson and her husband Dean, was there a separate stone with dates for Dean and a Civil War designation?
Dean died in Danville VA as a POW and there is a stone for him in the National Cemetery there.
I have been asked to delete the one you transferred to me but want to check everything first, because I have several of the children linked to this one.
Dean: Find A Grave Memorial# 83366238
"Deane": Find A Grave Memorial# 3267996
Labeled incorrectly by US Veterans Affairs and can't be changed because they are unreachable, the stone only says "D" Nickerson
Phebe: Find A Grave Memorial# 79299266

|GeekyGraveGirl||George Lee transfer|
Hi! I transferred this memorial to you, as you are related and have taken an interest in it. This is among thousands which I have inherited, but in which I have no personal interest, other than they are in a cemetery which I photograph. I sometimes make the transfers without request, as I feel they are better off in caring hands (and ultimately make less work for me ;) ).
