I am generally not related to the people honored in the memorials I create. I focus mostly on photographic preservation of local history and sadly have no genealogical connections where I live. I am happy to transfer records to your safe keeping upon request.
I grant permission to use my photos for personal, non-commercial use. If you'd like to use them in a project, please contact me. It is not my intention to have these volunteered hours end up contributing to a service that will then charge for access to the information.
Tilsons, Dorchester North Burying Ground Hi Erin! Thank you for your edits for Anna Tilson (128968747) and Elizabeth Tilson (128968567) in the Dorchester North Burying Ground. May I ask you your source of the dates and locations you sent so that I can document my notes? Thank you! Kendall Mellem firstname.lastname@example.org
Franklin Wilson, #146379242 Thank you for finding my uncle and aunt's grave. I have submitted links for his parents. There were three sons in the family, Frank, Leslie Jr. and William (my father). Each joined a different branch of the U.S. service and fought in WWII.
RE: Mapiansh Regarding the missing Greek stones...I wonder if there has not yet been a fluent interpreter and the stones may keep popping up and transcribers are marking the box "Not My Language" rather than they be lost altogether? I wish you the best on getting those transcribed!
I apologize that Mapiansh was transcribed through at all. Since the photo transcription program here at Find a Grave is still in beta mode, there are a lot of odd things that happen over which one has no control. Typically it starts out with typing the last name in the box. If there is already a memorial set up at that cemetery, it will show in the drop-down menu and you then "connect it" and that is all that is necessary. Unfortunately, things "fly away" without even touching the button sometimes and there is no way to get them back. Hopefully this will be remedied soon! I viewed the specific picture you were referencing and there is nothing I can do. I would suggest you consider deleting the headstone photo and then resubmit it. I am not a foreign language expert and typically select the box on the transcription page that says "Not My Language" and move on to the next photo. Unfortunately, this did not happen and I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. By the way, thank you for taking headstone photos and uploading them here. There are SO many more out there that need to be photographed it just feels overwhelming at times.
Elnathan Mitchell 141166840 I noted you added Elnathan Mitchell (FIG #141166840) to the Washington Cemetery to the Green while he is already listed as Elnathan Mitchell Buckingham (FIG #105699127)at the Washington Cemetery on the Green. He was born Elnathan Buckingham Mitchell, son of Earle Burkingham (FIG #156287051)and Mary Helen Mitchell (FIG#156286861),but his name was legally changed to Elnathan Mitchell after the US Civil War. With the death of his Uncle Abner W Mitchell during the Civil War and the death of all this Abner's male children before Abner's death the the Mitchell name was about to go out in Washington, CT thus Elnathan Mitchell Buckingham changed his name to Elnathan Mitchell. I will be posting his obit that shows his name change to his two listing here and hope we can get him associated with his above Buckingham parents as just Elnathan Mitchell.
