Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member and Director of Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI), and currently President of the Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries, Inc. (FoMC). I have researched my Family History and now really enjoy contributing to the knowledge of all people of the past. My non-family memorials focus on my town of Bridgewater, MA and the neighboring areas.

POSTERITY: I publish photos and create memorials here for the benefit of present and future generations. If you want to publish my gravestone photos on any website that you contribute to (except FindaGrave, according to FAQ#142), include in the photo caption "used with the written permission of Chip5610 (#46997557) at FindaGrave" and keep a screen-print of this page for your records. Copyright laws require you to obtain permission to use a photograph, and conditionally - based on your integrity - you have it! Understand that merely attributing credit does not comply with the law.

Building a cemetery index: I invest a lot of time developing and maintaining the cemetery page listings for Southeastern Massachusetts (maps for Plymouth and Bristol and Norfolk counties) and several other counties in the state. I add new cemeteries and I remove "incorrect" cemeteries. I improve existing cemetery pages by adding cemetery photos and the GPS coordinates. To each cemetery description, I add the GR identifiers from the MA Vital Records books and the MACRIS identifier to each Massachusetts cemetery description. MACRIS identifiers are an important first step in protecting a Massachusetts cemetery. Knowing where a cemetery is located is the first step in preserving the cemetery and finding a grave.

Assistance: The structure of the site engenders collaboration. The "Suggest a Correction (SAC)" feature is great, so use it liberally! My e-mail was set-up specifically for FindaGrave matters, so feel free to send as many SACs as you want. This is a great hobby, and I will work with anyone, happily! My only request: Say 'Thank You'!

Hooper family
Thank you for all the pictures you took at Cowaseet Cemetry of Evelyn D Hooper, Roy D Hooper, Ernest Hooper, Ernest Leon Hooper, Roy Douglas Hooper and Sylvester Hooper. I am wondering if you saw a Mildred S Hooper (Baker) She was barried next to her husband Roy Douglas Hooper, I think. If you are near the area could you check. the area 28C.

Thanks for all your help again.

Hey do you live in Plymouth County, MA? Because my great-great grandmother's brother, Francis Joseph Heavens (2/21/1859-?) and his wife Emma Clarinda (Bardwell) (9/2/1856-?), lived in Plymouth County, MA, their latest records were the 1930 US Census and their residents were Plymouth, MA. So that means that they died in the 1930s or sometime after 1930, I'm not able to find their death records anywhere like ancestry an familysearch. So if you can find their records and obituaries that'll be great?

Thank You!
Thank you for the Dyer headstone photos. Bummed that the other 2 didn't have stone, but thank you so much for placing the plot photo since I know & confirmed by the cemetery office that they are there. Since it's fresh in your mind, where you able to read the stone for Orietta Dyer at all?
