Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy photographing and researching graves in the local cemeteries. You are welcome to use my photos of your relatives graves in your family trees. That is what they are for and I don't need to be credited.

If you find errors in my memorials please let me know so I can fix them. I will edit my memorials if your information doesn't conflict with what I have found in my research, unless you have proof the old documents are in error (which we know often happens).

Photo Requests:
If you don't want people using your pics then please don't fill the photo requests. That is just plain stupid. If you are that hung up on your "copyright" then maybe you should just put your pics in your own private trees.

Try to find where they were buried, but if you can't be aware that when someone does find them in a cemetery then FAG rules state that your memorial will be the one deleted, no matter if yours was there first.

No Death Date:
Please don't enter memorials just because there is a headstone. If there is not a death date and they could possibly still be alive, be respectful and don't create a memorial. Many people plan ahead and buy headstones years before they die or their name is put on a spouses headstone. Just hold on to your pics until you find a death record for them.

I will gladly transfer memorials to relatives, as long as they aren't related to us. I don't care about my numbers and I don't think any of us should be holding anyone's ancestors hostage. If you ask for a transfer it is nice if you can add a bio, if there isn't one, so no one is forgotten, plus it helps others in verifying their trees. Linking memorials together also helps all of us out here trying to unscramble mysteries.

Let's all work together, play nice, forget about your numbers and make this a place where people can find all their missing links.

As an added note... if you email me please tell me who you are talking about. I don't answer emails that just request that I email back with no explanation of why I should, or requesting that I call. I don't call anyone.

Idella is my mother's mother and she never knew anything about her mom. I have been able to find information and have been to Summer St Cemetery to find her grave but have been unsuccessful. Do you know the plot. I am wondering where you got your information. What you have is what I have been able to find out. I know she had another daughter by the name of Fredia born abt 1912. She is my mother's half sister. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Alden Caswell
Well, aren't you a sweetheart! lol But I am sorry you are not related. I found your name, and a LOT of genealogy, on the Caswells in the Pine Grove Cemetery in Manchester, NH. -- so I assumed.

Thank you for your efforts! I'm glad you are obsessive!

Alden Caswell
I am pleased to see the new memorial for Alden Caswell-- I am descended from his half sister Mary Jane Caswell Thompson. Would be pleased to correspond if you are a Caswell descendant-- I have worked a LOT on this family, and have corresponded with another of Alden's descendants.

Hi there!

Could you remove this Sarah Horne as mother?

She's the wrong one. This Sarah was married to Mace Wright.

RE: Stillings question
I wish I could tell you. I've been trying to work my way backwards out of Virginia/Maryland into New Hampshire and Maine for some time now. I was hoping to get some clues through some cousins, but so far, to no avail. I am going to have to travel to Washington D.C. as I believe the answer lies there. It seems my family are the only ones from Virginia and everyone else can claim New Hampshire and/or Maine. But the name is unusual enough. They are surely all connected in some way. I will keep plugging away. It is there somewhere. :)
