Bio and Links
Bio Photo I primarily cover cemeteries in Hampshire and Franklin Counties, though I have also done extensive work in and around Boston.

My focus is on pre-1800 stones, Revolutionary War veterans and Civil War veterans. I also snap any Dickinsons I come across, since those Dickinsons seem to be really into this.

MY PHOTOGRAPHS MAY NOT BE RE-POSTED OR REPRODUCED ON THIS SITE, ANY OTHER WEBSITE, OR IN ANY OTHER FORM OF MEDIA WITHOUT MY EXPRESS WRITTEN PERMISSION!

PER FIND A GRAVE'S POLICY, PLEASE NOTE THAT "TRANSFER REQUESTS SHOULD BE FOR DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS, THIS WOULD BE YOUR SIBLINGS, PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS AND GREAT-GRANDPARENTS."

I don't mind being contacted with a specific question about one individual, but please don't contact me with open-ended questions about an entire family line. I receive an average of two such emails per week, and since I have a busy work life, I simply do not have the time to type out entire branches of my family tree over and over. Please refer to rootsweb.com and/or ancestry.com which is where I got most if not all of the information. I HAVE NOT POSTED AND WILL NEVER POST MY OWN FAMILY'S PERSONAL TREE ON THE INTERNET, SO THERE IS NO MAGIC LINK TO A MASTER FAMILY TREE THAT I CAN PROVIDE.

Sarah Strange died 1703

whoops... that should have read :

John Strange marr by 1651 Sarah Howe; he died by 1657; she remarried 1657 to Richard Curtis.
source: US New England Marriages Prior to 1700 (Ancestry)

John Strange & Mary Howe's daughter, Sarah Strange, born 18 Aug 1651 or 18 Oct 1651
source: Massachusetts Town & Vital Records (Ancestry)

I don't feel that the Sarah Strange who died 1703 in Boston (memorial #39427384) was their daughter since her gravestone shows that she was aged 21 years (c1682 birth) - unless I'm reading it wrong - but instead was the daughter of Josiah Cobham (or Cobbett) & Mary Haffield.

Sarah Strange d 1703
I believe that this is Sarah Strange born 1681 Boston; died 1703 Boston; dau/o John Strange & Sarah COBHAM and not parents John Strange & Sarah HOWE, now noted on findagrave.

John Strange marr by 1757 Boston to Sarah HOWE; John died 1757 (US New England Marriages Prior to 1700 database on Ancestry); their daughter was born 1757, and Sarah (Howe) remarried in 1757 to Richard Curtis.

The gravestone shows that Sarah Strange died abt age 21 years which would make birth year c1682 and not the 1651 as noted on findagrave.

As well, memorial # 27122390 for a Sarah Strang who died 2 Oct 1711, aged 63 years, wife of John, is attached as her mother. I believe this to be Sarah (Cobham) Strange who was born 1646 Salisbury MA; dau/o Josiah Cobham (or Cobbett)& Mary Haffield. Court papers show thatSarah (Cobham) Strange's estate was taken over by someone else Nov 1711.

Also buried in this cemetery are Mary Cobham (mdn Haffield) wife of Josiah Cobham, Moses Cobham son of Josiah Cobham & Mary Haffield, and Deborah Cobham (mdn unkn), dau-in-law of Josiah & Mary (Haffield) Cobham. Their memorials are not connected.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hugh Amos l# 14527200
Hi:

I see you have used the picture I took on our vacation last fall of the Fobes-Amos Cemetery sign and put it on findagrave for my 7th great grandparents, Hugh and Hannah Amos. Do you have proof that they are buried there? We found the Amos Lake and were driving around the lake. I took picture of the sign, but we did not drive down the road to look for a cemetery. (Wish I would have thought of it). But I do not know that either Hugh or Hannah are buried there. You have used my picture and put it on findagrave as proof that they are buried there. Do you have such proof?

Permission to use headstone photo
Hello!

I'm delighted to find this wonderful photo you've contributed of the headstone of my 8th great grandmother, Mary Butterfield Whitmore, at the Old Burying Ground at Harvard Square.

May I please have your permission to use it in a Powerpoint presentation in my anthropology course and on Historypin.com? If so, what is your name so I may credit you for the photograph?

Find A Grave Memorial # 20859580.

Very kind regards,
April House

Question re: Editha Kellogg Moodey
On memorial #1904391, for Editha Moodey, you list her parents as Joseph Kellogg and Abigail Terry. What was your source? Was this part of the cemetery records? I've been unable to locate a source, other than family trees, which document them as her parents.

Thank you.

Thanks Moo, for such a speedy response to my request to connect Sarah to her parents and many siblings. And thanks for creating and maintaining her memorial so I could find it in the first place.
