Bio and Links
Bio Photo MY PHOTOS:

If you would like to use my grave images for any non-commercial purpose, I release them to you under a creative commons non-commercial license. No further permission is required or requested. If you'd like to leave me a public "thank you," I assure you that will put a smile on my face.

GPS COORDINATES:

Most of my photos taken in 2013 or later have GPS coordinates embedded. If you want to find the coordinates of a grave, and the memorial does not display coordinates, you can check if the image has GPS metadata. How to do this:

1) Click on the small image so you get the big image page.

2) Right-click on the image in the big image page and choose "Copy image URL"

3) Go to Jeffrey's EXIF viewer utility.

4) Paste the URL (it should end in .jpg) into the "Image URL" field on Jeffrey's site and press the button "View Image at URL". It should give you a lot of data like this example.

5) Scroll down to where it says GPS Latitude and GPS Longitude. If the image has GPS coordinates, you will see them there.

MY MEMORIALS:

My primary interests have been the historic cemeteries of Rehoboth, Swansea, and Providence, with excursions to Fall River and Somserset, and as far away as Maine and New York.

Of course, sometimes I make mistakes. Send me a correction by using the little "edit" button in the memorial. If your edits require more than a click, I may transfer the memorial to you.

TRANSFERS

I am interested in photography, genealogy, and history, not in maintaining databases. Therefore, I have a very liberal transfer policy. I'm glad to transfer any memorial to anyone who is sincerely interested in taking good care of it. I don't care if you are a relative or not. The only exceptions might be my own family members.

Thanks for sharing this posting. Actually, your photo is much better
I believe I have other CW graves mistakenly credited to the adjacent cemetery. I'll have to sort them out

Salisbury Markers in Swan Point
Thank you so much for the photos of Charles and Lydia Salisbury's makers in Swan Point Cemetery. It was very generous of you to take the time to do this for me. And the photos are so large and clear, too! I very much appreciate it.

Kind regards,

John

RE: Edwin Luther 1863-1932, FAG# 142049391
I cannot find the exact documentation which indicates that he is buried at Swan Point. However, these documents show that his name was Edwin Sanford Luther and give his birth and death dates:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F8H7-73X

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-266-11619-27442-22?cc=1542866&wc=MD1Z-6NL:104790201,104788602,109423301

It appears I had his record confused with the Edwin Sanford Luther who died in 1864. I am not certain of his burial place, although I suspect it may be Swan Point, I do not have documentation of this and he may have been buried elsewhere.

FREED stone at Swan Point
I continue to celebrate the comfort & closure you've provided! --And now I see your very finely crafted photos for my father's parents, as well.

I lived in Providence during my Brown and RISD years, and miss it sorely. When I was first at RISD (1972), my sculpture prof took us on an expedition to Swan Point. At the time, I had no idea that my ancestors were parked there! And that they had been right there in Providence, in the late 1800s. Funny how things come around, full circle. --Providence?

I thank you again, again and again, for this gift!
