Photos I take belong to the people who ask for them. You are free to do whatever you wish to with them. I ask that they not be published on pay-to-view sites.
I want to thank everyone who has stepped up and offered corrections or taken transfers for the cemeteries I've been working, it's been a rewarding experience.
I am in the process of visiting all of Danvers cemeteries and ensuring they are fully catalogued. I am only posting fresh photos when I think mine are better or show something different. If you object, drop me a line and we can chat.
I do take breaks and handle occasional photo requests - if you have a location, that makes it a lot more tempting. It's a challenge to walk a large cemetery looking for two headstones and then have 4 more requests for the same cemetery a week later.
I trim my messages and only leave those that I need to do something about - I'm not hating you, just trying to use the messages to advantage. (Although I think I will keep the message from Billie forever - such an inspiration)
Currently between laptops, all my "todo" notes are on the old one, new one doesn't have room for so many photos.
Complete: (There is some discrepancy in the numbering between MACRIS and FaG - adopting the FaG numbering as it comes up)
GR1 Wadsworth - added some 400 memorials and photos.
GR2 Nurse (checked - was complete)
GR3 Endicott (checked - was complete)
GR4 Preston (tucked away behind Putnam - added a few
GR5 Prince (catalogued and photographed)
GR6 Putnam (catalogued and photographed)
GR7 Leech/East Danvers (checked - was complete)
GR8 Porters Burying Ground (High street - added a few)
GR11 Buxton/Goodale (checked - was complete)
GR13 Hutchinson (catalogued and photographed)
GR14 Old Settlers - (Photographed)
GR15 Putnamville (checked - was complete)
GR16 Swin(n)erton (checked - was complete)
GR18 Russell (checked - added a few missing ones)
GR9 Holten - fair sized
Completely photographed. need to clean up 53 photos. ~1400 added to date.
Some of the photos are less than optimal. I've noted many of them to re-take, I trust I don't miss any - let me know if you find a horrible one that should be re-taken.
GR19 St Mary Sylvan St - moderate size, but Catholic, so every headstone has 20 names.
GR22 Xavierian (waiting for SJP to file obits to add remaining 200+ photos) - perhaps a student project?
GR12 Anshe Sfard - there are about 10 cemeteries back in those woods
GR17 Walnut Grove - Huge
GR23 Annunciation - Large
GR21 Danvers State Hospital - no markers? just a plaque.
Defunct - exist in records, but not on the ground.
GR?? Israel Hutchinson (just a marker)
GR20 Potter's field (off Adams street)
GR24 Porter Cemetery (off locust street, near Connors farm) - Although I have seen recent clues as to a cemetery near here - it still evades me.
GR25 Pedricks Cemetery (off locust street, near Connors farm)
XX Putnam (off Sylvan street, bodies moved to Porter's ca. 1920)

God bless you for your selfless service and beautiful headstone photos. You and they are deeply appreciated.
|Sara||RE: Beautiful Photo|
Thanks Jack...it is in South Street Cemetery Coventry...a nice medium size cemetery..went back there several times..if the weather is sunny and the sun shines at a good angle on the stone...the writing does stand out just right.
Hope all is well...

|Bonnie Kies||RE: Cogswell's|
K was just wondering if it was helpful. Hope so. Know what you mean about busy. My yougest granddaughter lives with me to attend headstart. Priceless. LOL Bonnie :)
|LadyGoshen||RE: Tappan corrections|
I'm curious too... will keep on digging and looking... :-)
|Nareen, et al||Anne Cogswell Goodhue|
Would you please move your tombstone picture for Anne's grave from this memorial http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Goodhue&GSiman=1&GScid=1503136&GRid=68190544& to this memorial
I had accidentally put up both memorials and i'm going to delete the first and keep the latter.
Please let me know when you have moved it.
Thanks so much!
Hi Jack don't know or heard of this book but thought I would send you the link it's called Cogswell's in America and you can read it on line.
|Bonnie Kies||RE: Capt William Goodhue|
Unless its more readable (which I doubt) This is fine, but Thanks So Much. Thank You to for all your photo's and time spent obtaining them. Can't say enough. Have you ever heard of http://www.stonehugger.com/ I wish they could do all the cemeteries with broken and unreadable stones
they repair them to like new, Check it out. Bonnie :)
|bluelady||Esther M Pead Trask|
Would you please be able to add her parents as connections? 34792721 is her father Mark Albert Pead and 34792090 is her mother Martha Ann Redman Pead. Esther is a great great grandmother of mine. Thanks you in advance.
Mary Hawthorne aka bluelady
I also notice you do a lot of work in the Danvers area. Have you run across a grave for Charles Trask? He died in Peabody in 1896, was a civil war veteran, 5th MA company C. His wife's name was Susan. I had no luck finding much information on any of them at the state archives. Once agasin Thanks you in advance for any help you can give.

|KBStewart||RE: Aaron Parker|
The "Families of Cavendish" book referenced on Aaron's memorial indicates that he was born in Marlborough, Whitshire, England. Not a precise source for where they were living before they immigrated, but the best I have. I have a PDF of the relevant pages and would be happy to send you a copy if you'll send me an email so I can get your address. My email is listed on my profile. It has a great anecdote about Abraham selling hard liquor to the Native Americans and getting into trouble with the law. Crazy times.
