I still consider myself a Rhode Islander - where I grew up, lived, worked, and played for some 50 odd years - but as of July 2012, now call Gray Maine "home".
My husband of 27+ years sometimes pokes fun at me for spending much of my free time in cemeteries, but I continue to be engrossed in the study of family history and find cemeteries simply fascinating!
My own genealogy work began when my Dad died just two months before seeing the new millennium and hasn't stopped since. I enjoy helping others realize their family history goals and often take photos or conduct limited research projects - just for fun! - on a volunteer basis.
Many of my own ancestors have been in southeastern New England for centuries. My more recently "imported" predecessors were from England and Ireland.

Hello Debi. I was so sad to find Austin and Anna had no headstone so I hope you don't mind I took pictures of their plot and added them.
I did find in the registry Gilbert and Marie Searles and i did add Marie to the Find A Grave site with pictures. I have to add for Gilbert but will do so as I have to get his date of interment however he is not marked on her headstone though they are buried together.
I do not know if they are related but thought I would add them and take the pictures.

I am wondering if a divorce occurred. The second marriage is just a year before Charles Knight dies.

There was a marriage on December 1, 1923 of Charles Knight of Gray, ME to Dorothy H Durgin of Casco, ME. I will do further research about this.

68% !!! Look at you go. Hope all is well.
|Tom||RE: Hass Family - Highland Cemetery|
I looked closely to see if there might be a stone in there for Augusta. I just could not see one. Lilacs, if properly kept and maintained are a beautiful bush, however, if one lets it go, it can really turn things into quite a mess.
The next time I am up that way, will try and stop in and take another look see.

|Ralph Gowen||RE: Webster headstone|
It's always the last place you look, rarely is the last the same as the first... I was in Maine in April and was wandering around Oakdale Cemetery in Sanford without the aid of a plot map - highly entertaining to figure out where I was by finding a stone, looking it up on the web, then another one to see if I was going the right direction... Figured it out eventually.
|Ralph Gowen||Webster headstone|
Thank you for taking the time to find and photograph the headstone
|cw-sawyers||Fred W. Sawyer photo|
Thank you, Debi, for this photo.
I spent a few hours putting this much of the family together. Looks like Fred W was indeed 90!
Estelle's death date was off by a month, too;
but I was lucky enough to find her obit.
Thanks for your work ... and keep clicking ...
