Amateur photographer in Massachusetts who has always enjoyed wandering through cemeteries and taking photos. Discovery of Find A Grave now gives me an excuse to get out with my camera and take photos.|
And yes, my profile image is indeed from an actual headstone in the Forefathers Burial Ground of Chelmsford, Massachusetts for Oliver Fletcher (d.1771) (Find A Grave Memorial# 18168422).

Yes a marker photo would make it plainer. I make memorials from marker photos I take, but this one escaped me. I will find it and add to his page. Thanks again.

|Elaine||"Pete" @ Lakeview Memorial|
In regard to you thinking I may have created the "Pete" memorial on a false start, I didn't. From the size of his grave, Pete is a small child or baby. The only markings on his grave is his name. The other memorial you referred to is in the mausoleum. They are separate burials, but thanks for being on the ball. Sometimes if contributors make a mistake, it takes another contributor to direct our attention to it. Thank you.

|Jack Parker||Old Pioneer in Westford - photograph|
I'd like to use your cemetery photograph in our periodic family newsletter - I'm doing a piece on Mass cemeteries, and Old Pioneer is a prime example of a small cemetery with no recognizable headstones. Distribution is strictly within the Parker family and you would be credited for the photo. Is that acceptable to you? I could wander over at lunch and take one myself - but you have such a beautiful one.
|MSzalko||RE: Privacy laws|
Thanks for letting me know about the privacy laws. The trouble is that this cemetery is an independent one and there are just a couple of people working in the office to look things up. When you go in they want to know more details than me just giving a name and date of death. It's not like the bigger cemeteries that have kiosks you can just use. They always ask how you are related and such.
I do know there are some sort of laws, at least here in Illinois, because I've tried getting help at a couple of different cemeteries and unless I had enough details they weren't very helpful. I'm still trying to locate my great grandfather. I know what cemetery he's in but because there are 11 people with the same name they wont open the files and narrow it down for me because I can't confirm his date of death.

|Colman||RE: Wallace in St. Pats Lowell|
The burial site for the Garrigan and Wallace family is in Yard 4, range 20 and 21. "Garrigan" and "Wallace" are the only words on the stone. The back of the stone is completely blank. The area around the stone is pretty bare, too. There is just this single stone for all of them. Ellen (Garrigan) Dailey is also buried in yard 4. Her grave can be seen to the left almost parallel to the chapel.
Are you related to the Garrigans?

Thank you, Patrick, for adding the photograph of his memorial found at his school to his memorial pages. It is much appreciated. Thank you.

Patrick: This poor, broken off tombstone or centopath is in pretty bad shape. I am glad you captured what's left in 2011; it is used in several memorials. But I was wondering if you made a transcription you could share. I am not sure we captured everyone on it. Please advise at email@example.com.
I enteered the wrong date,So it is now corrected as per stone.
Added some stone transcriptions and a few links.
If this family is important to you, I can do a few lookups for further information.

For whatever reason I did not get your sacs.
There have been glitches regarding my reciving emails alerting me of messages for my public page, and though I once asked admin about it, I got no answer.
I have been getting sacs off and on though it is hit and miss.
I always deal with corrections when I get them, if I get them.
