|Bio and Links|
Daughter of Evelynn Grace Beebe Lovelace (Allen) (83822715, Hennessey, OK Cemetery) and Ralph Lovelace (66037350, FT Snelling National Cemetery, MN). Very interested in genealogy of the Lovelace and Beebe families.|
I am a veteran (U.S. Navy, Retired), as my father was before me. I pay respects to all whose markers I photograph, but I have to say there is a soft spot in my heart for those who served. I love finding veteran markers and trying to learn more about those individuals. Lots of Revolutionary War soldiers buried here in Maine. I've seen Spanish-American, French-Indian, Civil War, along with WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam Era markers. I don't always agree with our foreign or defense policies, but I ALWAYS agree with a young man or woman who makes a sacrifice to serve their country.
My current project is to photograph cemeteries in and around coastal Lincoln County, Maine. When I was researching my mother's family, I found it very helpful to have websites available where people had posted historical information and photos from a variety of sources, and that's how I feel about Find-a-Grave and doing this work.
Maine is a state rich in old history and there are a lot of avid family historians looking to websites like Find-a-Grave to piece together the fabric of who they are and where they have come from. I love walking the old cemeteries, photographing and trying to read old stones, and finding bits of historical information, such as shipwrecks and such. I find it so interesting some of the things people have put on the stones of their loved ones.
One of the most poignant so far, from an old slate stone in Evergreen Cemetery, Wiscasset, Maine:
"Erected by parental affection to the memory of Mr. James Whittier, son of Capt. Ebenezer Whittier & Elizabeth his wife, who died April 17th, 1798, of a consumption on a passage to the West Indies, Aged 25. The disease which terminated his existence originated in the death of his fair and betrothed friend who lies interred near this monument. In life they loved, in death they are not divided." (Sadly, the other stone is no more, so I never discovered his "fair and betrothed friend.").
It means a lot for me to contribute to Find-a-Grave so people can learn about their families or conduct research.
I do my best to be as accurate as possible with the records and photographs, following the naming conventions and guidelines of Find-a-Grave. Please contact me if you have questions about the information I've posted (mostly photographs and inscriptions, unless I originally created the memorial). I'm happy to make corrections and additions on anything I've uploaded, and transfer your family members to you, however, PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" BUTTON and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION". I will gladly respond if reached via this method.

I do not have the picture any more. I do not have it archived as far as I know. You can copy it and use it.

Your quite welcome anytime. Barb
|Roland R. Wilkinson||James & Olga Lovelace|
I was more than happy to transfer James and Olga Lovelace over to your safe keeping. I disagree mostly with the Find A Grave guide lines and do not follow them to the letter as some folks do. Many are way too anal about those guide lines. I was in the Navy, I served aboard the USS Mauna Kea AE22, and Ammunition Ship which had a home port of Port Chicago, California near Walnut Creek. I was a 3rd class Machinist Mate in the Engine Room. I was on her from 1961-1964 and was sad to hear that in 1997 she was finally used for target practice somewhere off of the California Coast and off course eventually sunk.
Enjoy Find A Grave as much as I have for the last 11 years.

|Barbara Warren||Ephriam Burnham stone|
John Burnham is Ephraim & Mary's son and the wife Lizzie is Lizzie May Boston born 21 May 1895 in South Berwick, York, Maine and she died 19 Mar 1960 in Boothbay Harbor, Lincoln, ME. I am related Ephraim Burnham through our descent from the surname Malcolm.
Thanks for applying the updates/edits to the Tucker Family and for managing them with care.
You did it so quickly!

I am not directly related, or probably even very close. I am researching Beebe's who served in the Civil War. I'll add any information or transfer to you if you wish.
