Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a child, my mother was always bringing us on Cemetery hunts and we spent many hours making grave rubbings and walking thru the monuments . With my best friend I used to play in the cemetery at the end of my road. Now, I find myself drawn back to the past, and the peace and love that is so palpable in our burying grounds. I find great satisfaction in being a Find a Grave volunteer and am on my own search for my family who went before me and helped to make my life the blessing that it is. I'm gratified to know that I am able to unite in such a small way, families who are in search of each other.

Family names I am researching are Curtis, Hollis, Crofut, Burt, Gates, Melow, Sutherland, Watts, McKay, Cady, Sherwood, Pitts, Parker, Thompson, Pyle to name a few.

Thank you to everyone who contributes to this wonderful website and the intensely important business of perpetuating history by documenting the people and their contributions that have gone and lived before us, gave us life and a reason to live. God Bless you all.

Please visit my Uncle Joe and leave a token for him. He fought for us in WW2, my Great Great Uncle Roswell Curtis and 1st Cousin 4x removed Orson B Curtis who fought in the Civil War and a very special young man who I had the privilidge of knowing Lt. Timothy Steele who died in Afganistan.

RE: Joseph Ross
Thank you Kate. I appreciate your help. I only have one family member who goes to Maine to take photos of the tombstones we are aware of.
Thanks again.

Joseph Ross
Thank you so much for the photo of Joseph Ross' tombstone. I really appreciate the work you do to provide the photos and grave information. As I do not live near Maine, I would have never had a photo of this wonderful tombstone. Your photos were well done. Joseph is my husband's gr-grandfather.
Thanks again for providing this.

RE: Alan Blair Curtis
I am always saddened and disappointed when I fulfill a grave photo request for which there is no marker too. I'm glad to have been able to assist in some small measure though. Take care, and happy hunting! :)

You are welcomed! I headed over to the cemetery and's summer, the bugs were out of control. I did the best I could with no bug spray, LOL! I may have posted a couple duplications? If I did please go ahead and delete!

RE: Harry C Merrit
When Harry died at an early age, his widowed wife, who was from Canada, gathered up the kids and returned to Canada in 1914. The sons, at least, grew up, married, raised their own families, and died in Saskatchewan.
I sent you a personal email a little while ago about the Curtis family...
Thanks again!!! Jayne

RE: Harry Merritt
I don't know what to think... I was looking for Harry C Merritt and it seems this one on FindAGrave is Harry G Merritt. I am soooooooo appreciative for your efforts!!! I'd say let this one go...I know what it's like to tramp around forever trying to find graves for others!!!
Thank YOU so much for your volunteering!!!!
