Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am working on maintaining Middlesex (Map), Essex (Map) and Suffolk (Map) counties in Massachusetts.

If any information I enter is incorrect, you wish to add something, or would like a direct relative within four generations transferred just let me know. (per F.A.G. guidelines FAQ79) If requesting a transfer please make sure to say how you are related.

Please use the 'Edit' tab on the upper right hand corner of the memorial for any of the above requests. Thank-you.

This is Find A GRAVE. Please do not ask me to link to 'burial unknowns'. I will be more than happy to do so when the location is found. Take a moment to read FAQ146 regarding unknown burials.

In case you do not wish to read FAQ146 it states "Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days."

Henrietta Swan Leavitt
Hi Denise,

While the other memorial has chronological precedence, it lacks both depth and accuracy, to the point that I find it almost insulting to Miss Leavitt's memory.

Allow me to quote from her contemporaneous obituary:

"She took life seriously. Her sense of duty, justice and loyalty was strong."

I cannot in good conscience cede to your request, not out of any sense personal pride of ownership, but out of deep respect and admiration for Miss Leavitt.

I left a respectful note to to "n grab", who has not bothered to respond.

I will gladly withdraw my post, if "n grab" or anyone else would care to post a decent memorial.

RE: Clifton Richards
Denise, Thank you so much but I think it looks just fine as you have it now. Edward P was my grandmother's brother and he was in much trouble with the law. The links you added allow any descendants from the only son to know who the father was and research him. But never knowing his son, I worry that they may want further info to remain private. I enjoy the love triangle story that resulted in Edward's imprisonment and death but others may not. I think I will add a photo of Edith (if OK w/ you) that I inherited in case her family would like to request the original from me. From one Denise to another, Denise

The stone is not easily read. I posted a picture, though. Looking closely, I would say the date of death is June 19

RE: Foster/Forster
Cemetery (on Find A Grave) is in remarkable shape Mr. Tuttle has done a fine job with the memorials. The cemetery itself has some very nice stones, I regret that I didn't take more time to work the whole place.

RE: RE Cemeteries
Mill Street has twice been extended past Peabody Street, about 2012 and 1980. It used to end on the southern side of the river. I drover creeper-slow from the river back to peabody street, and the first 100 feet or so, below Peabody on Mill, and didn't see it. But it's forested there, so tough to look around. It is worth another try. Maybe a park-and-walk. Best of luck on that.

Gregory Street, if below (SE) of Deacon Lane, is most likely Middleton Colony cemetery. They just started digging up that field, for new construction of some sort, over this winter (since harvest?). They're rehabilitating the whole colony it seems. I only read the Beverly Citizen, so I have no clue what's up. You?

That Salem thing with Jack Parker is also taking off (I'm working with and guiding them on it. It was mine, but I have 0.000 time to work on it.) I understand why you folks can't help on that (not being QUITE AS local).

Thanks on all the help. Keep me posted. I'll try to drop you a line if I get my boots on the ground soon and find anything, too. Barry

Re Missing Cemeteries
Thanks re thinking of finding the missing cemeteries.

Re Gregory Street (technically in East Section), that is probably the Middleton Colony of Danvers State Hospital. I saw the numbers-only stones a decade ago. They are building anew there now. I do not know where they have re-interred the bodies, nor if they are already on the memorial on the ex-DSH land or added, or not even. My Hows (Howes) are from there, and one of my Hows is in the Howe Cemetery (an ancestral father-in-law), but I know there were other Howes in the North Section at one time.

Re Thomas Rd, that you may find to be a private road now (or it was, and now is not). I believe that will turn out to be the Richardson Cemetery (not Fuller on Richardson, which is located where the latter's current farm is, off MA-114).

I expect Fuller North and Howe to be off Essex and North Liberty streets, or vice versa, Symonds to be off East (due to burieds Boxford origins), and Elliott who knows (they came from away, probably Beverly, and married into various families, including the Flints of South Middleton, so I'd guess it would be somewhere in the Central District, but that'd be a guess). I have company this weekend, or I'd do more now. Thanks for the help (just what I was attempting to "instigate", ... grins here). Regards, Barry.

RE: Arthur Jacobson
You're most welcome, Denise. Glad I could be of help. The obituary came from the Bismarck Tribune at

Kind regards,

re: Thank you so much for sending Arthurs obituary. He was my uncle. I live in Massachusetts so did not get to see it. Was this published in the local paper? or was this from the funeral home? Denise.

RE: Esther B. Nomeland Trulson

Surely was a typo!! I looked up the obituary and the year of marriage is 1938 Sept 21 (according to the obituary). Sorry for the typo! And thank you for catching it. It has been corrected on the memorial.

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

RE: Grace L. (Trulson) Jacobson
Hi Denise,

You are most welcome! Thanks for updating it. Good luck to you in your further research! Hope you are enjoying your early morning.

Kind regards,

re: Grace L. (Trulson) Jacobson
Just wanted to thank you for the links to her parents, Emil and Gina Trulson, in the Fairview Cemetery in ND. Grace just happens to be a great aunt. I havent worked on much genealogy on that side of the family in a while. So this is very much appreciated and got me moving again. Thank you. Denise.
