Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved cemeteries ever since I was a child. I enjoy walking through them and reading the headstones and grave markers. Find A Grave is a good way to help others find their family/ancestors if they don't live locally. I've been doing genealogy for 25 years and love discovering new things about my family. I also love helping others with their family tree. I am 13th generation American. I am descended from multiple Mayflower passengers (Brewster, Hopkins, Howland, Tiley, Cook, and Chilton) and I am a member of the Mayflower Society and also the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) and had an ancestor who fought in the Battle of Bunker Hill. I also am a direct descendant of a multiple of those involved in the Salem Witch Trials in Salem in 1692 include Rev. John Hale who is my 10th great grandfather and was portrayed in The Crucible.

I was born and raised in New England but I live in South Carolina now (near Hilton Head, SC & Savannah, GA). I love to travel and always find myself in a cemetery somewhere!

I'll be happy to transfer a memorial to you if you'd like (well, unless it's my personal family member).

RE: John McGahey - Pawtucket
I'm sorry, I didn't know about the fire... I was just lining up the requests list for the next time I'm in that cemetery. I'll take a look in front next time I'm back there.

RE: Philip Beasly
You are very welcome, It is the first time I contributed. Several months back I requested a photo of my wife's father grave and that got me started

If there are any other headstone pictures from Pictou County that you would like, let me know. I have have taken over 10000 in the area over the past few years.

Hi. I am sorry the picture did not turn out clearer. I tried to take as many in that cemetery as I could while I was there because it is quite a drive from my home. Unfortunately some did not turn out as well as I would have liked. If I go back there in the future I will try to get some better shots for you!!

RE: LaForest grave
I think I fixed that sideways photo issue. Could you also check the 2 memorials and make sure they are correct? I'm kind of out of practice with doing this :)
