Ever since I can remember, I have had a fascination with cemeteries. There was one right down the street from our school, we used to walk through it often, It was so peaceful and the monuments were so beautiful. My father Calvin Russell Swallow is buried there now. My sister Mel and I have gone back to Massachusetts and other New England States and explored the cemeteries looking for ancestors. Genealogy and searching cemeteries for family has been a treasured time with my sister. What a gift it is to have a sister to share your interests with.|
I am hoping to make connections with distant cousins and share pictures and stories. I have posted many branches to our tree to do this.
I AM VERY LIBERAL WITH TRANSFERING MEMORIALS. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE FOR EVERYONE (COPY THEM AT YOUR PLEASURE) AND I FEEL NO SENSE OF OWNERSHIP OVER MEMORIALS THAT ARE NOT MY FAMILY. I LOVE DOCUMENTING GRAVES. I AM SOMEWHAT OFFENDED BY THOSE WHO DO NOT SHARE THAT SENSE OF GIVING. WE GET NO POINTS IN HEAVEN BY HOW MANY MEMORIALS WE CONTRIBUTED TO FINDAGRAVE. THERE ARE MANY FINE CONTRIBUTORS TO FIND A GRAVE AND A FEW THAT NEED TO GET OVER THEMSELVES. Remember...."God Loves a Cheerful Giver"!!
A POEM FROM ALL OF US AVID GENEALOGIST'S!!
Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone. The name and dates are chiseled out on polished, marble stone. It reaches out to all who care; it is to late to mourn. You did not know that I exist; you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse not entirely on our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so.
I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. - AUTHOR UNKNOWN

|SamK||RE: mable lucille allgeier|
I respect your reasons, but can you at least add "Lucille" as a nickname as she did prefer that name. This cemetery is very actively photographed and chances are she will be duplicated in the future.

|Linda||RE: Malcolm Brogden|
Thank you so much for replying and the link between the graves. I will look for the Leavens genealogy book and also would appreciate a copy of the paper work from Ada's research and provided by Mr. Clarkson if you run up on it. I am trying to find the connection between my line of Brogdons and the McPhersons because my great-grandfather Brogdon claimed to have had a "grandmother McPherson"--that's all I have to go on. Any information you can provide will be appreciated.

Hi! Thank you very much for posting Malcolm Brogden's information on Find A Grave. I am researching my Brogden/don family and believe its possible that Malcolm was related.
My question is thisócan you tell me the source of the info you added about Malcolm's family i.e., his parents, wife, and children? If it's a true fact that his father was Malcolm Brogden, then I can stop researching whether his parents were Silas Brogden and Christian McPherson of Chesterfield County, SC. That family was on the 1810 and 1820 Chesterfield County census with about 11 children but disappeared from census records after 1820.

|Vicky Guild||RE: J & Nancy Guild|
Hi Star: Thank you. I will take good care of them. I can't tell you how surprised I was to have found their grave info and gravestone photo on here. I send lots of appreciation and good wishes to you for posting their grave info and gravestone photo. Vicky Guild *:)

Looking at the gravestone photo that goes with this it appears to read d: 1804 not 1802.
|Vicky Guild||J. Guild and Nancy, his wife|
Thank you for posting the photo of the gravestone of J. Guild & Nancy, his wife. They are my 4th great-grandparents, making me their 6th generation descendant. I visited this graveyard many years ago and did not see this stone. Looking at the dates, I know that this is the grave of John Guild, son of Benjamin Guild & Abigail Graves, and Nancy (Druce) Guild, daughter of Dr. John Druce and Margaret Trowbridge. They resided in Foxborough, Mass. After his parents died, he sold their house in Wrentham, to the Kollock family, which is why it is known as the Guild-Kollock House. I was so excited to see this stone. Wow. Thanks, again. Vicky Guild
