I have been restoring gravestones and whole cemeteries for about 11 years. As a middle school teacher, I've led over a dozen field trips to clean, repair and reset gravestones in Indiana and New Hampshire cemeteries. I have also visited each cemetery in Hendricks County, Indiana and taken GPS readings and photos of them. This information is on the INPCRP site. I am more than happy to edit or transfer memorials--just ask!
Fleece cemetery Someone has requested a photo for Susan Clay. I see that you cleaned and restored at this cemetery and took pictures of the stones. Since there isn't one for several of them, I am assuming they were not clear enough to get info from. Please let me know if I am correct in assuming this. Thank you.
joseph Audsley Jessica, Joseph Audsley b. 1812 Yorkshire England who died in Saline co Missouri was not the son of Francis and Mary Sharp. His parents were William Edward and Ellen Ackroyd Audsley. Francis and Mary Sharp Audsley did have a son named Joseph, but he is a different one.
I was so happy to see our cemetery listed on the site thanks very much!
I would be very appreciative if you would transfer the McCartee plot on Kennard Hill Rd. Porter Oxford County Maine USA to me. We have owned this property since 2007. My husband, son and I have spent many days clearing the area, and straightening the headstones for Mary and Lucinda McCartee. We carefully added new footings for the headstones winch were on the verge of destruction and are happy to say that they are straight and strong. My Aunt plants flowers there and we added a beautiful red rhododendron alongside. Prior to our ownership the site overgrown and was not view able from the road. We take great care in maintaining the site and feel that it is a great adornment to our property.
Horace Livermore Opposite Grandfather’s house, on the hillside, was the district school for the children of the neighborhood. One day in summer, the usual lessons were going on, Aunt Mary, a small girl then, told me how Horace Livermore, a lively son of the Judge, was amusing the pupils by boyish tricks when the teacher was not looking, and the boys always have time and doubtless always will. A sudden thunder shower came, a hush, a crash, the house was struck! Teachers and pupils fled to Grandfather’s house. All were there but Horace. Where was he? Grandfather hurried to the school house which was as usual. But there sat Horace, dead in his seat. None had noticed him in their headlong exit. His grave is in Trinity in the Livermore lot, just back of the church. >The Ashland Town Library Notes, p110.
Pritchett Cemetery Jessica, I have a question for you. Is it possible that at Pritchett Cemetery there may be a few graves that have not been discovered? I have references to a Caswell Marion Donica Born: 25 December 1803 Virginia Died: 8 April 1883 Pritchett Cemetery.
