Bio and Links
Bio Photo I like visiting cemeteries and taking photos - they may not always be the BEST photos, but I try for legible.
I really don't have time to do links, if you are related at all, please just ask for a transfer - I really do want all the memorials I've created to be with family.
I have a lot of photos that I just haven't gotten uploaded yet - but if I created a memorial, then I have a photo for it.

I'm not related to any of the Maine memorials I've created and I'm just a caretaker, I'll transfer to any family members. I don't know anything beyond what is on the stones.
I give permission for the use of my photographs for any reason, but would like credit. "Photo courtesy of Brenda Ball" will suffice. I do have larger copies of all photos, if that's helpful.

If I fulfill a photo request for you, or transfer a memorial out of guidelines, I expect a 'thank you'. Hopefully, in 'real life' when someone does something nice for you, you take the time to thank them. Online life is the same way, if you don't bother, then *I* won't bother.

Carroll M. Libby #95370581
I think you have the wrong family headstone photo attached to Carroll. The photo is of a Libby headstone located at the south end of the cemetery. The family members with individual markers at his stone include Ralph P., his wife Florence Dimock, Guy W., his wife Cynthia Sawyer, Roy A., his wife Patrica M., and Roy Jr.

Carroll and his wife Lena are buried at the north end of the cemetery, with his parents Charles and Carrie.

I have a photo, but I intend to post it on my web site ( and I'm not sure if posting it here as well would conflict with the "No photos taken from other web sites!!!" rule

Rev William Campbell Cemetery
Hi. My cousin is interested in visiting the Rev William Campbell Cemetery in Minot, Maine. I saw that you have taken a photo there. So I thought you might be able to tell her where it is. Can you give directions? Thanks in advance!

Tripps and Verrills
I am related to many of those buried at Black Cat Cemetery. Several were removed from that cemetery to
another one about 80 years ago once the town near the cemetery no longer existed. It was a small community that stayed very close together and then finally moved out or died.
Would you be willing to transfer these to me?

My number is Peter (#47447008)
Thank you very much. I think I found all the Tripps or Verrills at Black Cat that you maintain.

Iva Keene #94704499
Hello Miss Brenda!

I would like to add a bio to Iva Keene from her obituary and have it read as follows please:


From 6 February 1914 Lewiston Evening Journal obituary:

Mrs. Fred B. Keene, Hebron.

EAST HEBRON, Feb. 6 (Special)

The death of Iva Keene, wife of Fred B. Keene, occurred February 4. Mrs. Keene was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.B. Farris of Hebron and was 31 years of age. She is survived by her husband and five children, the oldest 10 years old. Also by her mother, by two brothers and by one sister, all of East Hebron. She had been ill but a few days with pheumonia.


Thank you so much for your time and effort and have a great day!

I cannot read the photograph of her stone in Oak Hill and it does have the date on it. If you can puzzle it out or check the stone in person,I would appreciate it. She was probably born no earlier than 1840. #99467059.

Also, if you have found other wentworths that you have not created a findagrave memorial for, I have a list of folks I'm looking for in Emma's family. You can contact me thru or just email me at

Thanks for all the photos!
