I grew up in Lexington, MA, which may explain in part my interest in colonial history. I retired a few years ago after 20 years as a computer programmer. I generally photograph colonial cemeteries or at least the oldest sections of them. I studied early New England history in the 90s. My cousins got me interested in genealogy a few years back. I've always loved photography.
I would like to thank everyone who has offered corrections and additions as any new information makes the memorials that much better. I always want more info.
Please, when offering corrections or additions, include the memorial number as I have created thousands.
And look at the rules set down by Find a Grave before asking for transfers.
Don't fuss about spellings. One person wants the modern version, another person wants an older versions. I can't please everyone.
I usually do all requests within 24 hours.
Feel free to use any of my photos. All I ask is that you credit me for taking them. Please email me if you're doing some for-profit thing. And do not post my photos from other websites to Find-a-Grave. Ask me to do it. Thanks!
Rev Benjamin Wadsworth Memorial# 50189387 I am a descendant of Capt. Samuel Wadsworth # 52300536 (via his son, Deacon Ebenezer Wadsworth # 29125652 ), and he is also the father of Rev. Benjamin Wadsworth. I was looking at the photo you have on Benjamin's memorial, and if you added a dark long wig and a beard to my dad...they could be twins. It is funny how family resemblances are carried down over the generations.
John A. Tufts Hi, I saw the page you made for John A. Tufts. I am wondering if you are related to that family? I was looking at old family bibles on EBay and saw one with record of John Tufts marriage in it and others in that family tree. Then I went looking for someone who might be related in case they would be interested in this priceless old family bible. Just search EBAY with this and you will find it=
