Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived in Acushnet, MA. since 1958 and have always been interested in photography and history so having a hobby that combines the two is great.

I'm a 2nd generation American on both sides of my family so it didn't take me very long to create memorials for my departed relatives in the local cemeteries.
My parents, David Pimental and Norma S. Pimental, maternal grandparents, Harry #39060089 and Bertha (Baumeister) Settele #39060089, plus maternal aunts and uncles, Louis H. Settele #39060184 and his wife, Kathleen “Kay” Higham #39060231 and Harry Settele Jr #39059970 and his wife, Mary Anna Josefek #39060037, are at Pine Grove Cemetery in New Bedford so I started adding to the entries there to aid others researching their genealogy and got hooked on photographing stones and adding to the data on FAG.

Since 2012 I've been concentrating on Rural Cemetery which is also the final resting place for my paternal grandparents, Manuel Dias Pimental Jr #41299437 and Valentina (Mello) Pimental #41294992, Grand-aunt and Godmother, Amelia “Millie” (Mello) Monteiro #41294450, paternal great-grandparents, Manuel #41294221 and Rosa (Botelho) de Mello #41294307 and Grand-aunt Beatrice “Bea” Edwards #41294366.

Please don't hesitate to ask for a transfer of any relative of yours that I've entered, no matter how distantly related. I'm related to only 40 of the memorials I've created and always like to see them in the care of family.

I usually don't post my photos to memorials with existing headstone photos unless mine is truly a better shot (clearer, brighter, color-balanced or cropped so it can be read), but when using the Upload & Transcribe function there isn't any indicator that an existing memorial already has a headstone photo, so it does happen. If I've done that to one of your memorials I'll be happy to remove my photo if you ask.

I post most of my headstone photos to Ancestry in my FAG Research tree under my Ancestry user name "trinka5364". I also post my photos to Ancestry when I find that I've photographed stones that already have photos posted in FAG.

Anyone who wishes to use these headstone photos for non-commercial purposes should have the courtesy to give credit to the photographer when copying: ex. "Photo by D J Pimentel"

The flowers I leave on memorials are mostly shots I've taken of flowers in my garden or ones I took when visiting other gardens on vacation.

RE: James Thomas Wing # 31199837
D J:
I do believe you are correct in that my photo request was on the generic page for James. And after I received your message I rechecked my and find-a-grave pages and found Jim Grasaela's work. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

I'm always so careful about looking to see if there is a memorial page already made...perhaps it was "cemetery unknown" or in another cemetery originally....will eliminate mine.

RE: Coulthurst Transfer
Hi Donna,

I was just wondering as you took great care to add the genealogy aspect to the pages. I am not aware of the "cotton mill" aspect either. I think my maternal grandmother worked in textiles though, so it would not surprise me if some of the other Coulthursts did also.

Best wishes to you.

RE: Mary Elizabeth Cranston Choate #119775700
Hello Donna,

I'd never ask, but yes, yes, yes! Thank you!
I have pics of Mary Elizabeth's daughters - Jeanette (aka Jessie) 119778200, Susie (119777993) and Marian (119777800) - (None of Helen that I know of) So if you wanted to transfer Mary Elizabeth and her three daughters that I can add pics for, it would be great to be able to order and sort the pics - plus I have a lot of Cranston History/Lore that I can add in the bio text. Thank YOU!!!!!!
