|Bio and Links|
I have been doing gene research for about five years and have an extensive tree on Ancestry.com. My kin come mainly from the Northeast, Canada, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I am a Maker, a Parker, a Harvey, a Heath and a Kemp. I have extensive roots in Cutler, ME and Merrimack, NH.|
I love wandering old places and especially graveyards. One's name may never been written previously or since, one's life never recorded other than the engraving on the stone.
"To gather up the records of the past and present, and faithfully transmit them to the future, is a duty which one generation owes to another." - The Rev Ira C Tyson, Bedford, NH 1885
Many of the memorials I have created are for family members, but once I get to a graveyard I photograph many stones and add them here as well. I am thorough and link memorials when the data is on the stone or if I have uncovered it in my personal research. I do not see these memorials as my property and will gladly transfer non-relatives to anyone with more info, a relationship, or more care. I will gladly and quickly make changes/additions/link relations upon request also.
Please feel free to use my pics without request as you wish. I took them for you! My camera takes awesome pics that I need to shrink in order to upload them to findagrave; if you would like a copy of the better pic emailed to you please ask - it really tickles me to find a pic someone has been looking for.
Many other contributors are playing a numbers game and I think they have lost sight of the purpose: documentation. If you are too busy to make requested changes in order to properly document one's LIFE, if you enter the bare minimum of info when more data is readily available, if it is all about entering one more name, please be gracious when one asks for a transferal of the memorial. Nobody is going to list how many memorials you created on YOUR memorial! 100 thorough, family-linked memorials are better than 126,000 half-assed name listings with death date years - but only in my opinion.
Some folks on FAG are re-creating their family tree here which is JUST SUPER if they know where they are all buried. The problem is that they often add memorials without burial information in order to be able to link other memorials together. I take photos to document a grave, and I search the same cemetery on FAG for the name before creating a new memorial. I do NOT search all of FAG because I know darn well where they are buried - so If I duplicate a memorial that one of you idiots list as "no cemetery" then forgive me for not considering my memorial a duplicate.
That being said, there are many contributors here that truly care that these memorials matter. They spend hours in graveyards and on their computers to ensure that these folks are not forgotten. In their profiles there is no mention of the website rules. All they ask is that we care. I do.

|2patriots||RE: Benjamin Philbrook|
I'm glad to have the mystery of Benjamin clarified. I have removed my photo request, the memorial from Sanborn Road Cemetery. I have requested through the forum that the cemetery be removed. No need to transfer him to me. thanks.
|IHRP & Family||Huntley|
Thank you for the links and for adding the great photos.
|Nancy Fayette||Heath and Kemp|
Amy, just noticed these two lines on your bio and have both of them. My 4x great grandfather, Richardson Emery (sp Jane Swan, d'o William Swan and Mary Russell) was the son of Sarah Heath and Humphrey Emery. His brother .Enoch, is also my great grandfather. Enoch married Rachel Tirrell and they had a daughter, Polly. Polly married Richardson's son, Russell, giving me a double Heath and Emery line from my Mom.
My Mom was the daughter of Alzina "Nina"Emery, d/o William Emery and Jennette Cline. William was the s/o Enoch Emery and Alzina Canfield. Enoch was the s/o Russell Emery and Polly Emery Emery.
Russell was the s/o Richardson and Jane Swan Emery.
Polly was the d/o Enoch Emery and Rachel Tirrell.
Both Richardson and Enoch were sons of Humphrey Emery and Sarah Heath.
|Nancy Fayette||RE: Manning Folk|
Amy, thank you so much for the transfers. Glad to accept any from any of the lines you see posted on my bio. Those are all direct links to me.
Again, your work and your help is much appreciated.
|Wayne Goss||Florence H. Goss Stone|
I am interested in knowing the relationship between Florence H Goss and Ernest Hamm on this stone. I believe this Florence is my Great Grandmother who was married to Calvin R. Goss, my Great Grandfather. I am having trouble finding anything beyond Calvin R. Goss. So I am trying other doors! Want to make sure this is the right Florence. The dates and all seem to match, but I am thrown by the Hamm on the stone. My Grandmother, Lillian Braley was married to Calvin's son, Frank Goss Sr. Calvin was actually arrested in 1899 and spent a year in the NH State prison for stealing 3 sheep valued at $15. Once he was released, I cant find anything else on him. No death record, nothing on where he lived or moved to. I so want to find out where I came from on my fathers line but reached a dead end. Anything you have (or anyone else who reads this might have), please contact me at Wayne.Goss@libertymutual.com. Back to research!!
|Chris Gilbert||Martha & Oliver Church|
Thank you so much for the 2 gravesite photos of Martha and Oliver Church. It's great to have the photos as the likelihood of me getting to Cutler before late summer isn't good.
I have also added the links for the relationships for each on Find A Grave.
|Bonnie Maskery||Maj John Goffe #67913990|
Thanks for the info on him and the links to his parents. Info has been added.
|Carole Whittemore||Judth Whittemore|
Thank you for the additional information on Judith Whittemore's memorial! I have added it along with documentation that You are the one who provided it. I read your profile and appreciate how you feel, and I totally agree with you. I get so excited every time I add a photo or some much wanted extra information on their family that was previously unknown. I also want to thank you for the transfers. You are a great addition to findagrave! Thank you for your dedication and hard work! It is certainly appreciated!
