My father once called my brother and me, "Dead end kids", and now that I am doing this genealogical research, I can feel his disappointment. Both of us had our reasons and our spouses felt the same, but this Find a Grave research has given me great satisfaction. We may not leave descendants, but we can leave a heritage for other members of our extended families to find as time goes on. This is a great network of volunteers who are willing to help each other "fill in the blanks" with photos and information.|
I had several professional lives, which seems to be the norm. I was first, a fashion designer and spent two years living in New York City enjoying that, then felt called to an occupation with more long-lasting benefits, so returned to Arizona and taught third grade children for 30 years. Upon retirement, my husband and I opened an Antique business which we enjoyed for several years. Since then, discovering the family roots has become a passion...who knew we had been in this country, in many branches, since the 1600s! Now I am hooked!

|Donna Blair||RE: John & Frances (Coggan) Whitcomb|
Hi again, cousin! Yes, I'd love for you to send me an invite to your tree. You can get my email addy from my Find A Grave profile. Once you do, let me know if you'd like to join my tree on Ancestry.com as well & I'll send you one too. If yours is on Ancestry too, it would be great if you could invite me with Contributor Status and also check the box to "allow me to See living people" - and I'll do the same if you're interested :-)
|Donna Blair||John & Frances (Coggan) Whitcomb|
Happened to see your messages to colleen sanborn about Frances Whitcomb. John & Frances were my maternal 8th-great-grandparents. I have this note re: John's burial in my family tree:
Old Settlers Burial Yard ("The old burying ground"), Lancaster, Worcester, Massachusetts, USA
According to Charlotte Whitcomb in her 1904 book "The Whitcomb Family in America", "he was laid with other forefathers of the hamlet in "the old burying ground", but today no fragment of even a battered stone marks his resting place".
Also, the bio section of both John & Frances' memorial pages include this info:
According to Rev. Frederick Lewis Weis (b. 1895- d.1966), 12th minister (1926-1951) of First Church (the Bulfinch Church) in Lancaster, and an ardent genealogist, he noted that, "John and Frances Whitcomb were buried in the Old Settlers Burial Ground, but their gravestones have not survived."
So their gravestones were gone long before 1904, and it was confirmed by this Rev. Weis sometime before his retirement in 1951. It's disappointing, I know, but I hope you find this info helpful.

Hi, You may be in luck... I was unable to locate Mary Prentice in the Massachusetts Historical Societies burial ground database with matching dates in the Old Settlers Burial Yard; however, the librarian let me know that some records that are in Find a Grave as being Old Settlers are actually in Middle Cemetery. The two burial yards are separeted by a field and railroad tracks. I skipped Middle Cemetery that day, because it was getting dark. I will go back and look at the stones at the middle cemetery for you. Maybe we will have better luck! Do you know if she had a husband?
|Krauss/Gronek||Wade - Brown|
Hello. Made it to Olney cem while the boys where dove hunting. Martha Wade doesn't have a stone any longer. I know her first husband isn't buried there, and I'll have to find my family chart to see if second one is.
I added Missouri Catherine and James H. Brown photo's to their memorials. I have photo's of James A., Effie. J.L. Also for Abbie Brown, Moore and John Moore. I forgot to see if the two Moore's are on F.A.G. already. There's also in another section of cem., J.L., Abbey, James, Rolla and J. Aubert Brown. If you'd like to add memorials for these others? I'll add the photo's.
My husbands direct line is with Mary Susan Cobb, Lewallen, dau of William and Catherine Cobb.
|Wayne McMillen||Rueben McMillen|
I note that you posted a photo of my Grandfather Rueben McMillen on this site. I gather you were related to him somehow so that means that we are related some way. Would you mind sharing the connection if you know? My dad was Lyman Thomas McMillen, Reuben's oldest son. I am a native of Louisiana Mo.
I have the family chart somewhere. Not sure it has his burial location though. I'm planing to go and take photo's at that cem., soon I hope. I'll let you know if he's there and you can make the memorial. Susan
|Shani Miller||RE: Sallie Ann Huffman Wade 112904379|
I was contacted by Carolina Grave Hunter aka Vicky, who advised she had discovered Stempel was the correct spelling of the cemetery. It does appear that they are one in the same, so I moved Sarah and her daughter, Irene to the Stempel Cemetery. According to Vicky, the duplicate cemetery, Stemple has been reported to findagrave. I suggest contacting Vicky for further verification if needed. Hope this helps.
|DBLee||RE: Henry Howdeshell 91186779|
The Date of Death that I have, 1865, came from a fellow genealogist in 1992. Her name is Carolyn Hagner, and she lived in Florissant Missouri at that time. I do not know if she got the information from the cemetery, or some other source. I haven't had contact with her in years. Also, I have not visited the cemetery where Henry is buried, so do not have direct information. I do not anticipate going there in the forseeable future. I suggest that you request a photo of this grave on find-a-grave and see if it can be located. If you have further information to possibly correct the date, please let me know. Or, if you desire to have control of this record, let me know and I will transfer ownership on Find-a-grave. Thank you for your info. Don Lee

|eightisenough||RE: Echo Pollock Frederick 86563171|
Hi Cerelle! I'm so glad you sent me a note. I have searched to see if I have the information you are requesting, but I don't have it. I did put in a request for a photo of Aunt Echo's headstone. I'm hoping when they take the photo, it will include Jesse's information too. I sent a message to a cousin on my Parker family line who may know some information about Jesse. I'll send you a note again when I find anything out. I love Aunt Echo and Esther, they were always so fun to be around. I don't remember meeting your husband, but wish I could have.
