Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a graduate of Mount Pleasant High in Providence R.I. I enlisted in Air Force and spent most of my time overseas.I am a Vietnam Vet and spent 10yrs with the Air National Guard.I retired after 40yrs with Pratt & Whitney as a jet engine inspector and the last 10yrs as an FAA inspector for the company.I have been researching my family tree as a hobby.I walk a lot of historical cemeteries looking for my ancestors final resting place.I take a lot of photos and clean up some plots of the family when I find them.My mothers side of family (Whitford)dates back to the 1600's.They are called swamp yankees around here.I have many historical cemeteries located a short distance from my house.I recently became involved with Pocasset cemetery in Cranston.I only live 2 miles from their.I do a lot of cleaning of grave sites and take photos as I go.I started a page on facebook for the cemetery if anyone is interested.I use for the info I enter on the bios.If you find a error please send me a note and I will correct it.
News flash:As a result of all my work at this cemetery they have put me on as a board member.I will try and fill out more photo request when I figure out the filing system which is very old.
I have started another task at this cemetery: I am posting all the burial cards on F.A.G. so expect a lot of edits. I am doing it alphabetically so I do not know when I will be done. This way I capture all the single plots with only a small numbered stone. I will not be taking photos of small stones because they are basically all the same except for the number but you will have the location.
Another reminder on photo request. Sometimes their is no marker for the grave only an empty plot. Sometimes the stone is overturned on the inscription and to heavy to flip over. Other times it is a flat marker that gets buried over time.

Thomas and Ruth (Greene) Matteson
I am sorry to have to reject your edits on F-A-G memorials 89154157 and 144687293. This is definitely stone carver error on the death years for each.

Matteson family researchers over many years including myself have not found any exact birth dates from vital records for either of these two Matteson family descendants.

The birth and death dates I have entered are those researched by James Newell Arnold (who wrote all of the RI Vitals) in the early 1900's and these are used as accurate original data by the RI Historical Cemeteries Transcription Project.

This stone is granite and was placed much later by a family member.

JNA transcribed the original marble stone for Thomas that existed in the 1900s.

Stumbled across a picture of this guy, if you want it. The max pictures are on the memorial so I can't add it.

What is the written record you place on Raph's site? Where did it come from? It looks like a body transfer?
