I am in the process of inventorying the cemeteries in the Mystic area of Groton and Stonington. I completed 11 smaller cemeteries on the Groton side and have uploaded them to FAG. I am now working on Elm Grove Cemetery on the Stonington side and will be uploading photos and information this winter when it gets too cold to do field work. I will be happy to transfer management of most of these sites because I have no relationship with them.

RE: Agnes Healy
Thanks for doing the update - maybe someone closer related will ask for the memorial. I am happy for you to keep it,

Agnes was born in Oregon. Her father died at sea in 1872 off San Francisco, and the mother came to Rhode island in 1880 then returned to Oregon. The children scattered, so were hard to find. Your work has helped a lot

Cynthia passed January 19th,2016 and was recently buried at Elm Grove just to update.Memorial# 143353179

is there a way to get plot locations in the elm grove cemetery? they say you can find anything on the internet but a map of the plot #s is being difficult. I have many friends n fam buried there and only plot #s. stopping in the office isnt quite an option with my work hours

RE: 129447760 Harrison Cady
Weird. I can't find a new memorial for him - just the one you had before. There might be a waiting period until they approve it. That was smart making a new memorial because you can click famous right on the form. I'll keep an eye out for him and vote him up.

Thanks for acting on the info.

129447760 Harrison Cady

I was excited to find your W. Harrison Cady. There was a story about him in my local paper (Gardner, MA) yesterday and I decided to search for him on find-a-grave. I had made memorials for his parents in Gardner and you just linked him to them. But I wanted to let you know that he's famous and you might want to email find-a-grave and let them know he's famous so they can mark his memorial as such. They have a certain structure how they like there famous biographies written. If you wikipedia his name you can find out all about him. The pictures on there are usually copyright free as well. I think all find-a-grave requires is that you start with how they are famous. For example for Harrison it would be:

Amerian illustrator and author. (and then you just write about what they did)

I'm not very good at writing that kind of stuff so I hope you might give it a try. You might even be able to just copy and paste from Wikipedia and find-a-grave will give credit to them.

But anyways, no pressure, even if you don't do it at least you know whose grave you photographed.

Memorial #92321108
I have edited this profile and the one of his sister, and added information. You have added a note with a question as to the Harriet E. Crandall at the bottom of the stone. Harriet was his sister. Neither Charles or Harriet every married.
Hope this helps someone.

Thank you for the work you are doing with these cemeteries, many will benefit (as I have done in my area). Not sure what you would like me to do with family members you have added - would you like me to request each one by "edit". Thanks again.
