Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love to do genealogical research & photography, so becoming a volunteer photographer here was a natural choice. My own family names include Urquhart, Howland/Tilley, Alden/Mullens, Post, Collins, Whitney, etc.

**For those with Island ancestors or relatives, I recommend: as well as the "Martha's Vineyard Antique Photos" Facebook page, and the M.V. Museum and the M.V. Historical Society** Another one is the "Martha's Vineyard Antique Photos" page on Facebook which posts wonderful photos!

If I create a memorial for your ancestor and you'd like it transferred to you, (and it isn't one of my ancestors) I am generally happy to oblige. However, if I email you extra photos and you upload them to new or existing memorials, please note that I'm the photographer.

I am so grateful to others who have created memorials for my family, taken photos, etc.

P.S. I recommend this online date calculator tool:
If you have the date of death and the yr./mo./days of age, you can easily calculate the birth date.

Falmouth Poorhouse burials
I'm glad you enjoyed seeing the memorial made for the Falmouth Poorhouse burials. In case you don't know, you can access old copies of the Falmouth Enterprise through Click on genealogy databases and then scroll again to Falmouth Enterprise. On the "search" button, add the name you want plus the dates. Cheers, Charlet

Deborha Seward Bishop
RE: Deborha Seward Bishop
I wish I knew more about her. Are you on Ancestry? You could view the info i have on her (birth, marriage, death dates) and see her ancestry. I would need to send you an invitation so let me know if you're interested. There's an image of her very handsome father!

Chickemmoo Settlement
Do you know of this place? I think it's near Tisbury - many of my family were born and died there . I searched the Masonic Lodge and many of the last names long ago were my family's. Trying to locate the direct line for my son - he will be Master of the Masonic Lodge next year at 23 yrs.

RE: Patrice I. Duvall
Needham Cemetery is very difficult to get in touch with. I lucked out last Veterans Day and actually found someone in the office who looked up some burials for me. He also let me take photos of the cemetery map, which is somewhat convoluted. I usually just wander the cemetery looking for burials and it may take me a couple of visits to find stones. Since Patrice's was flush to the ground, it was amazing that I found it. If you can provide me your email address, I can send you the jpg with a notation of where the burial is. I can also see it (roughly) on Google Maps ;-)
