(John C. Carter)|
(Will be spending part of the summer in southwestern Maine).
Happy to photograph at any cemetery in the Tampa Bay, FL area!
Born in Dover, DE, (to parents from NJ & WV), I lived in southern CA until age 12, & then in Raton, (a small town in N.E. New Mexico), which I consider my home town. I attended NM State Univ for 4 years (with a 1-yr exchange to Oregon State Univ), but did not complete a degree at that time, & later moved back to southern CA, settling in the Orange County area. After 10 yrs in the O.C., I moved to St. Petersburg, FL (Tampa Bay area) in 1990, & have been here ever since.
I have avidly worked on my family's genealogy since the age of 15 ... 39 years now!
I am a member (and former chapter registrar) of the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) with 7 qualifying ancestors submitted (more to come!), a member of the SUVCW (Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War) with 10 qualifying ancestors or brothers of ancestors (more to come!), a member of the SVR (Sons of Veterans Reserve (affiliated with the SUVCW), a member of the S&DUSCT (Sons & Daughters of U.S. Colored Troops), a member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indians of New Jersey, an associate member of the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware.
I'm very proud that every single branch of my ancestry has been in America since at least pre-Revolutionary times.
Having taken numerous college courses over the years, I finally bit the bullet & enrolled in a program in 2003 to complete my degree, & graduated from Eckerd College (a local, private, liberal arts college) in May 2005 with a B.A. in Creative Writing.
Besides genealogy & writing, my other interests include: clock collecting, books, movies, photography, the Civil War, the space program, many types of music, & visiting cemeteries!
Thanks to the creators of this site for doing such a great job!

Thanks, again for the very good photos you got of this memorial. Very appreciative also of the epitath you included under the photo caption...I would have had a hard time reading the last line as it was almost 'buried.'
You do good work. winnie

Thanks for the great photos of Almira's memorial I requested. I'm so pleased you added the small epitath/inscription under the photo caption...so many don't do that and many times it is hard to read.
Great job! winnie

Hi John, I see you have claimed these photo requests. If you have not yet taken the shots, I have. I happened to be spending the day yesterday in Fryeburg unexpectedly. If you would like me to post mine I will. Sorry!! C

I know better than to do this so late at night! I showed their last name in the subject as Ayers in my previous message! Oops!

John, I have added dates and corrected the year that was 2 years off. Yes, that one was a typo, and I appreciate you bringing that to my attention. I intend to get a new photo as this one looks faded and not very good. Regards.
