I found this on another members profile and it truly expresses how I feel as well:

"The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people."

I'm searching for information for the following Families: Lavash, Lavache, Hynes, Higgins, Donohoe,Bursey, Bradbury, Brown, Demeo, Hayes, Sawin. I've been researching my roots for over 20 years and have now started to record cemeteries for others.

I've also started adding any Irish and Canadians that I come across, in tribute to my ancesters, military graves & any children that I find - they seem to be the hardest to find & I'm recording them as I find them.

This is an abbreviated list of cemeteries that I have visited so far - I've visited some of these because I have family members there -

Belmont Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Calvary Cemetery & Maus. - Waltham, MA
Cambridge Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Common Street Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Cudworth Cemetery - Scituate, MA
Evergreen Cemetery - Marboro, Ma
Evergreen Cemetery - Leominster, MA
Grove Hill Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Highland Meadow Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Holy Cross Cemetery & Maus. - Malden, MA
Mt. Auburn Cemetery - Watertown/Cambridge, MA
Mt. Feake Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - Arlington, MA
Westview Cemetery, Bedford, MA
North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Olde Burying Place - Arlington, MA
Old Burying Ground, AKA Ye Olde Burying Ground in Lexington, MA
Old Burying Place - Watertown, MA
Puritan Lawn Cemetery - Peabody, Ma
Ridgelawn Cemetery - Watertown, MA
St. Pauls Cemetery - Arlington, MA
St. Patricks Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Woodlawn Cemetery & Crem. - Everett, MA
and a few others.
I normally photograph the whole family plot if it's more than a single grave & will post those as well.

Thank you to Linda Shepard Salzer for all her pics, corrections and updates for all the memorials that I set up for North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - I greatly appreciate it :)

Ps to message memorial 106008191 John G. Coolidge

Sorry I made a mistake in last message:
The passage should be:
"H.H. Richards was a son of Laura {Howe} Ricahrds and a GRANDSON of Samual and Julia Ward Howe"

mother 153446973

Also please add the following:
The following online genealogy reports that his grandson John Hamilton Coolidge married Anne Howell Richards who is a granddaugther of Henry Howe Richards 1876-1968 and Julia Gardner Coolidge 1889-1961 {H.H. Richards and his wife Julia are not listed on Find a grave because place of burial unknown} H.H. Richards was a son of Samuel and Julia Ward Howe while Julia Coolidge was a daugther of Joseph Randolph Coolidge and Mary Hamilton Hill {Joseph Randolph is a descendant of US President Thomas Jefferson! Likewise this branch of the Coolidge family is distantly related to President Coolidge. Poetress Julia Ward Howe wrote the "Battle Hymm of the Republic"!}

Mt Auburn
Hi Sharon, thank you. I am never sure about that one as 2 are listed for Middlesex Co.-Cambridge and Hopkinton.
They just weren't clear enough as to which one is actually in Watertown.I looked at the map a number of times.No help to me.So I thought I should just ask someone who lives there. Thank you,Mary

Thank you for the photos and note about the burial location of Margaret Ouillette and her husband, Loomis. Do you have any idea how I could find out Loomis's date of death? I'm researching this line for my cousins.

Avery Lewis Rand ashes
Thanks for the info about Avery and the fact his ashes were not buried at Mt. Auburn Cemetery. I have written the manager of his memorial to get that information corrected.
