Bio and Links
Bio Photo Working on family history - & helping others connect the dots - like other volunteers we are wanting to preserve history before the words on the stones fade away - to connect others to their family- friends-loved ones. No one should be forgotten. It wonderful to help others - this site has made so many people learn of their families past history - its fun to sit down with people you know and do not really - showing them how to use findagrave.

My family dates back to 1607 in America - being able to ask help from other volunteer's to locate stones in order to document gravestones of family members for genealogical documentation of those - that I am unable to locate - is amazing. Especially on Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket Island - some of the stone's are too far gone to read - yet able to locate almost 100 family member's stones & still searching. They arrived on the Islands 1633 - to still be able to read headstone's that are about 350 years old is amazing - It is because of volunteer's love of perserving history - these photographs are on their pages.
I hope you all find what you are searching for -

Max Gore transfer
I would have no trouble transferring, but wanted to know if you were aware that bio information in the virtual flowers were against Findagrave policy? Would you kindly remove the two in question? Any additional information should be included in an edit suggestion to the memorial manager to place in the bio instead. I have added the information you provided, and the sibling information is there in links to his sibling's memorials already. Thank you!!

RE: Thanks Alot Marguerite
re: filing for military gravestone. I'm not sure of the process, but YES, you can get a headstone marker as far back as the Civil War IF there is no family headstone already. I've taken photos of empty plots to verify cemetery & location & the families have been successful. Just start "googling" to get info or perhaps call or Veteran's Affairs? I think you need to order the military file for $75.

Do you have sources for the Shepley surname? All I ever found was Spaulding/Spauldin. Perhaps she was married to another Spaulding before Eleazer? I don't know. Do you know who her parents were if not Lemuel & Sarah Spaulding?

Thanx for the heads up.
