Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are volunteers for the Boylston Historical Society, working with the Boylston Cemetery Association to map, photograph, and link the graves in the town of Boylston to preserve the genealogical heritage of the town.

Additionally we are researching our own extended families and linking them on as we go.

Many times when we are working in some of the cemeteries we have leftover time and will photograph and create memorials for individuals pertaining to neither of the above endeavors and would welcome transfer requests from family for those individuals.

At present we cannot transfer Boylston memorials as we continue a multi-year effort to edit and complete their documentation with the Boylston Historical Society. We would greatly welcome information contribution to this effort!!

Edit Requests: Please ensure you either have email enabled on your profile or include an email with your request. Otherwise it is very difficult for us to determine the veracity of the request. Thanks!

Horace Davidson
Hi Bruce,

I received your edit for Horace Davidson, and before I accept it, could you just tell me how you found out the info? Horace is my Grandfather, and I would love to have his info as correct as possible, so I thank you for the update, but I am curious as to the trail. My dad, his son, was from Lennoxville, but that's the most detail I had as far as the Canada background. Thanks for any light you can shed on this. Ann Davidson LaCombe 48472647

Your Work
Bruce & Nancy,

Just wanted to congratulate you both on the fine work you are doing researching the records of the Revolutionary War veterans buried in the Boylston cemetery, and then forwarding the bio information to me so that I could update their memorials here on

I want to thank you very much for taking the time and making the effort to not only take clear & precise pictures but to upload them into the system with the plot location.

I'm working on my sister-in-law's tree and she will be pleased to learn that more relatives are in the West Boylston cemetery than just her mum and grandparents. Keep up the excellent work!

Thank you for the fine photograph of my 8th Great grandfather, Nathaniel Winslow Sr,'s headstone at the Old Winslow Burying Ground in Marshfield MA. May I please have your permission to use this photo on my family tree given you full credit along with the photo? Best wishes.

Thanks for adding the death index card to James Gilkerson's memorial. I changed the position as you asked and do appreciate that you let me know it was there. Thanks so much for your help. Sincerely

RE: not a burial in Lind?
Bruce: Thank you for pointing out the tombstone of Johann Meyer in a Spokane cemetery. He is listed in the Lind Cem as that is what was indicated in his obit. I will remove this memorial from the Lind listings.

Again, thanks for your input and for being a part of the findagrave volunteer family.

Birth of William Edward Seaver
Hi Nancy,
Thank you very much for the info on William Edward Seaver. I have updated my memorial. I did some more research and found a copy of his Death Certificate. He died at Worcester City Hospital in Worcester MA. According to Death Certificate he is buried in Amherst NH. I just need to find which cemetery now.
Thanks again for your help.
