Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogist based on the Outer Cape, and have deep roots in the Lower/Outer Cape area of Cape Cod. Exploring the local cemeteries is both fascinating and fun. Volunteering for Find A Grave has been very rewarding-- send your requests! If any of the memorials I've added are your family member, I will transfer memorials within Find A Grave guidelines.

A current project is photographically documenting a local pair of cemeteries as part of a larger long-term undertaking with a colleague. I hope to build and expand on what we know about these cemeteries and the people buried within them, as well as assist in the preservation of many of the gravestones that may be at risk. I live in Wellfleet, and will submit edits backed up with on-site cemetery research, on-site research of the town records, augmented by recollections of local residents.

The resources I use include, but are not limited to:

+ Town of Wellfleet Cemetery Index

+ Town of Wellfleet Cemetery maps

+ Town of Wellfleet Vital Records

+ "Wellfleet, Truro, & Cape Cod, Cemetery Inscriptions, Section Nine, Pleasant Hill & Oak Dale Cemeteries, Wellfleet, Massachusetts", published by Wellfleet Historical Society & Rich Family Association, 1986, plus revisions and updates

+ "Wellfleet, Truro, & Cape Cod, Cemetery Inscriptions, Duck Creek Cemetery", published by Wellfleet Historical Society & Rich Family Association

+ "Wellfleet, Truro, & Cape Cod, Cemetery Inscriptions, Section One, South Wellfleet Cemetery", published by Wellfleet Historical Society & Rich Family Association

+ Town of Truro Cemetery Index

+ Town of Truro Cemetery Maps

+ "Cove Burying Ground 1660 - 1770, Bridge Road Cemetery 1754 - 1886, A Survey Conducted in the Bicentennial Year 1976 at Eastham, Massachusetts", Eastham Historical Society, 1976

+ Barnstable County Probate records

+ Barnstable County Registry of Deeds

Leland Bardwell
Hi Donna, thank you for your information. I have changed the cemetery information for Leland. Leland is a distant cousin. His father is the brother of my great grandfather on my mothers side.
Have a great day Cheryl

Lewis and Lizzie Mayo
Hi, thanks for your help with the correct cemetery for the Mayos. And also the photos. Your taking the time to sort this out is much appreciated!
I found local obituaries for the family, and it turns out Lewis and Lizzie (Louise)'s son Lewis also married a Louise. Must have created some confusion. :)

Thank you for the update. I've changed the cemetery per your instructions. I'm not aware that there's any way to merge memorial pages, however. Bill

I don't mind doing a merge with memorial #70262098. Should I enter edits into the original memorial? Thanks

RE: Howlands
Thank-you so much for the many photos you uploaded and time you spent! It helps when they are group headstones ;) I will be able to add these to the family tree pics! I was hopeful my missing Howland would surface (another Sylvester Howland- father of Seth, Hannah, and Sylvester C and first husband to Mercy Smith Howland Bell) but no such luck. These are a great help though and I deeply appreciate it.
