|Bio and Links|
As a child, my mother was always bringing us on Cemetery hunts and we spent many hours making grave rubbings and walking thru the monuments . I get great satisfaction in being a Find a Grave volunteer and am on my own search for my family who went before me and helped to make my life the blessing that it is. I'm gratified to know that I am able to unite in such a small way, families who are in search of each other.|
Family names I am researching are Curtis, Hollis, Crofut, Burt, Gates, Melow, Sutherland, Watts, McKay, Cady, Sherwood, Pitts, Parker, Thompson, Pyle to name a few.
Thank you to everyone who contributes to this wonderful website and the intensely important business of perpetuating history by documenting the people and their contributions that have gone and lived before us, gave us life, and a reason to live. God Bless you all.
If you have time please visit my family's war veterans and a very special young man who I had the privilidge of knowing, Lt. Timothy Steele who died in Afganistan.

Can we talk on the phone?
|Kelly Pinkham||John Sherwood|
I am a descendent of John and was wondering if you are related and if not can you turn the grave over to me to manage?

I hate to find errors as well. I will submit edits and some times never get a response back and the error remains. Frustrating. One day I'll get back to the cemetery to hunt down more photo requests. Some zealous person clicked all names that didn't have a photo. So most are not people that are actively being researched. Life got busy and I don't like to go in the summer when its hot. You also have to be mindful of deer ticks. I did photograph the rest of Cutlers Farm Cemetery just to get it done. Good luck to you and thank you for seeing the incorrect spelling. I had missed that in my photo and not my relative so I had no other information to go on.

Instead of creating your new memorials, you could have sent an edit to the memorial creator John to make the correction in name spelling. He has corrected some others for me. Since you already created new memorials I added the photos for Rhoda and Sarah for you. So the photos on are both sets. Please contact John and figure out a solution so there are not two memorials. If he corrects the name, then you can delete your memorials. His were made first.
I have a book from 1994 where a lady did an inventory of the Cem. She has Watkins for Hezekiah and Walkins for the two ladies. His stone is very hard to read. I am no relation to these people. I was just trying to fulfill photo requests for Stepney Cem and add any that I came across that were missing on the website. If you are related to Hezekiah and want me to transfer him to you, just let me know. Marion

It was my pleasure to take the photographs and yes, you may use them. I must tell you this story. I work frequently in St. Patrick's Cemetery. When I was there yesterday I looked at the phone app and saw one request -- for your Max Hollis. I turned to look out my car window and there he was! Amazing. This has happened to me before and I always smile!
|Jennifer Brohl||RE: Bassett photos|
Hi Kate, it was my pleasure. You're very welcome!
|Colin Castelli||RE: James Bassett|
You are more than welcome.
|JoeDel14||RE: Leo Boyle|
I uploaded Mary, Kevin and Brett Barclay for you. I started looking for Ebenezer Delano but haven't seen yet and still will look another day.
Hope you are doing well.
