Bio Photo Amateur photographer in Massachusetts who has always enjoyed wandering through cemeteries and taking photos. Discovery of Find A Grave now gives me an excuse to get out with my camera and take photos.

And yes, my profile image is indeed from an actual headstone in the Forefathers Burial Ground of Chelmsford, Massachusetts for Oliver Fletcher (d.1771) (Find A Grave Memorial# 18168422).

Billy Jo Procter
Thank you for the msg. re: a duplicate Memorial for Billy Jo Procter.

The other member, deloneva, misspelled Billy's last name. No wonder he didn't show in a search.

deletion of addison memorial
Please disregard my former message. I see that I can indeed add a picture to the original memorial for Mr. Addison and I have done so though it is basically the same as the picture that is already there. I would be happy to delete my memorial for him if you would like me to.

deletion of addison memorial
Patrick, I am sorry but I am unable to do as you ask as to uploading my picture to Mr. Addison's original memorial. As you know, only the person who put up the original memorial can make changes to it. I believe Mr. Goss, who did the original may be dead as he did a great many memorials of the Marco Cemetery but none of them are recent. I can delete my memorial if you would like me to, but I can not add my picture to the other memorial. I do not really know why you want me to do so, the pictures are the same other than that the one I took is closer. Just let me know if you want me to delete mine and I will.

John Adams
I appreciate the suggestion on John Adams #91538714, but it's actually not a duplicate of John Adams #61239744. You'll notice that one of them was in the 70th Indiana Inf., and the other was in the 30th Illinois Inf. There are two other John Adams in Sunset Cemetery - one in the 86th Illinois Inf. and the other serving in WWI. Thanks for checking on that, but in this case it's not a duplicate.

Hi, Got your message about Anna. Something strange is going on. She is definitely in the Westford VRs as being buried in Fairview in Westford, same as her parents, Phebe and Philip and brother Isaac. I can see you took the photos of their headstones in Westford and they are the same as the ones on the Chelmsford memorials.

Looking thru both Chelmsford and Westfords Vital records and they are only listed in Westford GR1.

I'm going to put in a photo request for Anna and see if we can find her in Westford.

RE: Bradley Parker
Thanks - my eyes are not what they once were and I seem to make more typos these days. Bradley is once again covered up - all you can see is his name.

I deleted it yesterday, and btw, I have been on Find A Grave long enough to know when I need to delete a dupe. I certainly don't need to be told to or even asked to. Just tell me it's a dupe. Thank you,

Capt Ezekiel Wright Find A Grave#122103740
old duplicate: Find A Grave#122103740, deleted

Since he was born after the Revolution and died before the Civil War, what's the Capt on his gravestone for?

RE: links to sites outside of FaG ...

Other than just follow the rules, do you see any harm to linking to the FamilySearch record of the person the Find A Grave memorial is for?
