Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Cheryl Stewart, I am a 52 year old mother of two wonderful adults: Eleishia Jean and Christopher David. I also have an adorable granddaughter Samantha Jane who is 15 months old and will be a Gramma again come November when my daughter becomes a mommy. I am from Cumberland RI but now live in Hope Valley RI and loving it down here. Very peaceful and relaxing compared to northern RI hustle and bustle.

I seem to have this fascination with historical cemetery's. Always loved to walk thru them and look at dates and ages of the people buried there. Back in 1999, I started to work on my own family tree and after 2 years was able to put a book together along with a CD for my siblings for Christmas presents. At that point I had hit a road block on two branches of my tree so I had to put it down for a while. Over the next few years I have tried breaking the block but had no luck but this year was able to brake one of the blocks and while doing so found this site and figured I could help others with their quests.

I have now managed to go back 15 generations on one branch of my tree and 13 on another. Still road blocked in Nova Scotia though and its driving me nuts. Guess its passport time. Next vacation is to Canada but probably wont be until next year.

5 May 2013: Well the weather has finally reached the point of WARM. Seeing a lot of requests coming in. I will be fulfilling a lot of those requests over the next couple weeks. Keep them coming and I will do my best to get those photos for you.

18 Apr 2013: headed out today and took about 20 photos. Felt good to get back out there. Send me your requests. I'm living In Hope Valley RI now so visiting all new cemetery's. Finding a lot of them are on private property but I will ask permission from the owners.. besides I love a challenge.

30 Mar 2013: spring has spring so send your requests my way

24 Apr 2010: Well im back on track with my spring project, my family tree and also hitting the cememteries again. gonna start taking pics again so send me your requests. I had to take the winter off due to working 3 jobs and the weather didnt help either.

UPDATE 8/30/09: Well I took 1 1/2 mths off from this due to moving and ending up with pnemonia but im back on track now and back to taking photos. I have a list at the Highway department in Pawtucket for all listings at Oak Grove, they are going to give me all of the locations so I can easily find them since its a very large cemetery. Any that are prior to 1936, im on my own due to the records being lost in a fire. Also putting in a list for Mineral Spring Cemetery but most of the requests are for the stones with lost records as well. I will do my best to find these and keep everyone updated. Well im off to a couple more sites today to take some more photos before the next rainstorm hits.

Surnames I am researching:

Thank you, Cheryl, for the uploading a new photo of the monument. It's perfect---nice and legible. I particularly needed to see the information about the son, Nelson Irving. Thanks again for your work.

Stones at Rockville
Thank you Cheryl for the photograph of Charles & Ina Stone's monument---and for cleaning the debris from it. It looks as though it won't be too long before the stone will be illegible which makes your photo all the more important.

Thank you for the two photos. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

You realize we can upload 500 kb as a size for photos now- I can barely read this stone the photo is so small. I am not complaining- it is just to let you know.
Take care.

RE: Elizabeth Read
Do you still have the death date that was on the headstone? If so, would you please give it to me.
