|Bio and Links|
I've been researching my family for a while. My dad is from the South, my mom from the North. It's been an interesting journey.|
Researching the Drake/Eastman line on my mom's side, and the Earp/Trent line on my dad's side.
If I have put up a profile of your relative don't hesitate to ask me to transfer it, it's yours really. I only ask that you don't remove any military information from the profile. I was on a quest to find the veterans buried in Weymouth for the historical society in the past, and had posted whatever I was finding. I believe the people at FAG put connection links on profiles for a reason, so when I hear that somebody is refusing to connect a child because they are "old way" of doing things, or are too lazy to do the research that requires a connection, I will create a link. There is more responsibility of creating a profile than just the glory of finding them, they are family members. And don't be afraid to use any photos I have posted for however you need them!
Boston Burials (undertaker key):
Central Burying Ground aka Old South Burying Ground - South Ground, South GD, Common, Central
This is the oldest cemetery, prob many burials not recorded. It is the largest burial ground used by the City with many of the fallen soldiers from the Revolutionary war. The oldest recorded field stone was dated 1729. There were many removals in 1836, and then again late 1849 to 1856 to Mount Auburn in Cambridge, and Forest Hills in Jamaica Plain a few to other cemeteries. I still am unsure how many of the City owned/sold "brick tombs" there are. But I do know that the City had at one point used abandoned tombs 44 and 110 for city and town poor burials. There was a ban of burials for tombs and field burials in 1826 until 1836.
South End Burying Ground - South Ground N.W.SQ, South Ground S.S.(4 infant tombs, 5 sec field burials)
Tomb 1 - 1828 to 1830 (1 South Gd Infants)
Tomb 2 - 1832 to 1833 (2 South Gd Infants)
Tomb 3 - 1833 to 1834 (3 South Gd Infants)
Tomb 4 - 1831 to 1832 (4 South Gd Infants)
It appears the 1st tomb was est 1828 (prob because of the ban of burials at Central). The locals at Franklin Square were using this field for "private" burials, so there is no way to know exactly how old this cemetery is. The oldest field marker recorded by researchers is 1813. This cemetery became the "new" South Ground at 1828 - 1836, field burials started 1835 and continued here as South Ground, and tomb burials def continued at Central 1836. This cemetery is poss aka South Boston Farm, not confirmed yet.
Granary - South Burying, South Burying Ground, South B GD, Granary
This cemetery is not as old as Central, but private. Many of the tombs are smaller, privately owned tombs. The first field burial I have found open to the public was 29 Dec 1809, so I would say 1810 is a safe date to say field burials were open to the public, and the tombs were never abandoned and appropriated by the City.
Saint Matthews Church Cemetery (Defunct) - Dorchester R C, South Boston R C (all burials went to Mt. Hope Cemetery, 7 Dec 1863; tomb burials are within the cemetery on Cypress Ave)
Copp's Hill Burying Ground - C. Hill, C. Hill UG (upper ground), C. Hill LG (lower ground), C. Hill OG (old ground), C. Hill NG (new ground)
The typed Boston burials on Ancestry.com are not correct. Stay to the hand-written burials!!!

|Tim & Grace||General John Chandler|
I don't find General John Chandler among your memorials and the John Chandler I see in Mount Vernon Cemetery doesn't have any info about being a General.
The City of Augusta has cemetery listings online (Parks and Cemeteries) with an alpha sorted list and a cemetery plot list. Also, MOCA has a 6 volumes set (at Maine State Library) that has transcriptions of gravestones taken from "walk-throughs".

You have a Phillis Miller Smith 112561233 I was at the Medway Cemetery to take photos. The grave stone has her name with a Y Phyllis Miller Smith. I do not know which is the correct spelling. I am just letting you know that there is a discrepancy. Thanks, melissa
Hi, You have Edward D Stuart 112583660 who was my Grandmother's nephew.
I have his parents graves:

I would appreciate it if you could link Ed (Tex) to his parents.
|Irma||RE: Mehitable (Fulton) Bradlee 107138896|
Hi-I don't think that your Thomas Bradley b. 1776 is her husband. I had looked at the family trees on ancestry.com, and someone had indicated that he was born in 1788, and died in 1878 in Long Island. His second wife was a Ann Howard. But thats a guess, because overall, I don't trust what people have in their family trees! So I wouldn't link them. Thanks! Irma
