Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree for many years now and have a few brick walls yet to knock down. I volunteer on Find-a-Grave so that I can return the favors granted to me in the past. I am not a professional photographer or genealogist, but will do the best I can to fulfill photo requests in my area (and sometimes further if I am going that way). I am not offended if you need a better picture than I took and will try to remedy it. I will also be happy to transfer any memorials that I have made if they are not in my family. To me, it is more important that the memorials are with someone that knows them than a stranger.

You are welcome to use the photos I have taken for your own research.

NOTE: cemeteries in Maine are mostly closed once the snow starts to fall.

The names I am researching are listed in no particular order:

Kelly - primarily Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Ireland
Betz - Luzerne County, Pennsylvania
Higgins - Montgomery County and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Anderson - Pennsylvania
West - Pennsylvania and Wales
Hennings - Montgomery County and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Matthews - Ocean County, New Jersey
Hundley - Henry County, Virginia

Hi Gail, I got your edit for the surname to change to Pettingill, are you sure the family used this spelling as the grave stone has the spelling of Pettengill which waht I used for Jacob and his wife.

RE: William Sr. and Abbie (Pope) Dolan
Hey Gail,

That's very generous of you to photograph the whole cemetery, though depending on how big the cemetery, the longer it would take to upload the whole cemetery, but that's good that you are doing that. I should do the same thing in my place (Chattanooga, Tennessee) too! No, I don't know where the O'Hara's are buried at, but what I do know is that both Floyd and Anna O'Hara died in Napa, CA.

William Sr. and Abbie (Pope) Dolan
Thank you for the photos of their headstone, Abbie was my 1st cousin 4x removed. Also, I didn't know that their son William Jr. and their granddaughter Diane T. O'Hara are also buried with William Sr. and Abbie too. William Sr. and Abbie both have a daughter named Anna Shirley Dolan and she married Floyd Clement O'Hara, and so Diane must be the daughter of Floyd and Anna O'Hara, I wonder if Floyd and Anna are both buried at Village Cemetery too.

Lydia H. Cook
I am incredibly confused. I saw the photo you added of Lydia, which states on the stone that she's the wife of Harrison L.D. Cook. For years I have listed my 4th great grandfather as Nathaniel Palmer Cook. His wife was Lydia Handy (Plaisted) Cook. The dates on this grave match to what I have as her birth and death date, (1849-March 11, 1938,) but the fact that it says wife of Harrison L.D. Cook doesn't add up.

But I MAY have solved why I'm so confused. My 5th gr grandfather, Nathaniel Cook, is listed in a census with his wife Belinda Carleton, and a Cyrus, Susan, HARRISON, Eliza, Nathaniel P., and Sophie Cook. I'm assuming his children. Perhaps Nathaniel Cook's son, Harrison, this is his wife listed on this stone you posted. And maybe Harrison's brother, Nathaniel P. Cook, maybe both their wives have the same first and middle name- Lydia H.

It's be quite an coincidence, but...I don't know.
