Bio and Links
Bio Photo LOCATION: 9/1/13 I've moved to the South Shore of Mass. and will be there until the end of May 2014 - this will make it more difficult for me to fulfull requests in the Boston area, but I will do what I can while I'm in the area working. :)
I recently found this on another members profile and found how truly it 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."

There is quiet dignity and history among the trees, headstones, flowers and water fountains in the cemeteries - respect has been earned.

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 15 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 :)

Darling & Train Photos
Sharon, Thanks for photos on the above sites. It is amazing how many plots have only one stone on them for these old families. This is following same example as Forest Lawn cemeteries in California. They spend all their money getting buried in these cemeteries and no money left over for tombstone. Richard

Simmons Sites--Mt Auburn
Sharon, Thanks for beautiful photos on above Simmons Sites. I have corrected the dates on the memorial for Elizabeth Ripley Simmons and put in another photo request for this site to have your photos on. The dates in public records have been very difficult on this family but they look good after your photo of the tombstone verifying the dates. I appreciate all your work in Mt Auburn. Richard.
