I found this on another members profile and it truly expresses how I feel as well: "The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people.
My Mom @-->--Ruth Bursey Lavash
Her parents: William Nelson Bursey Flora Lillian Bradbury Bursey
Her Grandparents: William Robert Bursey Mary Brown Bursey
Her Great Grandparents: Stephen Brown Catherine Porter Brown
My Dad's parents: Raymond Lavash Ellen Veronica Hynes Lavash
My Dad's Grandparents: Caroline Sampson Lavash Ernest Paul Lavash
I'm searching for information for the following Families: Lavash, Lavache, Hynes, Higgins, Donohoe,Bursey, Bradbury, Brown, Demeo, Hayes, Sawin. I've been researching my roots for over 20 years and have now started to record cemeteries for others. I've also started adding any Irish and Canadians that I come across, in tribute to my ancesters, military graves & any children that I find - they seem to be the hardest to find & I'm recording them as I find them.
This is an abbreviated list of cemeteries that I have visited so far - I've visited some of these because I have family members there -
Belmont Cemetery - Belmont, MA Calvary Cemetery & Maus. - Waltham, MA Cambridge Cemetery - Cambridge, MA Common Street Cemetery - Watertown, MA Cudworth Cemetery - Scituate, MA Evergreen Cemetery - Marboro, Ma Evergreen Cemetery - Leominster, MA Grove Hill Cemetery - Waltham, MA Highland Meadow Cemetery - Belmont, MA Holy Cross Cemetery & Maus. - Malden, MA Mt. Auburn Cemetery - Watertown/Cambridge, MA Mt. Feake Cemetery - Waltham, MA Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - Arlington, MA Westview Cemetery, Bedford, MA North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - Cambridge, MA Olde Burying Place - Arlington, MA Old Burying Ground, AKA Ye Olde Burying Ground in Lexington, MA Old Burying Place - Watertown, MA Puritan Lawn Cemetery - Peabody, Ma Ridgelawn Cemetery - Watertown, MA St. Pauls Cemetery - Arlington, MA St. Patricks Cemetery - Watertown, MA Woodlawn Cemetery & Crem. - Everett, MA
and a few others ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I normally photograph the whole family plot if it's more than a single grave & will post those as well. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thank you to Linda Shepard Salzer for all her pics, corrections and updates for all the memorials that I set up for North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - I greatly appreciate it :)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
re: Bartholomew O'Callaghan Thank you for the heads up. I'm discovering some of my sources are really wrong about Cambridge cemeteries in particular! Time to make some phone calls, lol. Thank you again :)
Thanks for re-adding the photos to the Clark family, and thanks for filling my photo requests. Again, let me apologize for my misunderstanding of the whole situation. I didn't understand until I saw your plot edits that you submitted, and only then realized that they were all buried at the same plot.
I appreciate you trying to fill my photo requests for Fred, Jennie, and Helen Clark. But, can I please ask you to remove the photos of Margaret Clark's grave maker that you added to Fred, Jennie, and Helen's memorials? I believe that having Margaret's grave marker photo on their memorials will just confuse people.
Lydia Low #140750698 Can I ask you to put the headstone for Lydia Low & Caroline Cornell into the above memorial? Until I saw the stone I didn't know it was her. I will make a photo request if you wish. Thanks
William Crawford Winlock and FAMILY Thank you very very much for taking the individual and group "family" pictures of the Winlock family. I was out of town and just got home to a wonderful surprise. THANK you so very much for this I truly appreciate it. Denise
