|I will gladly transfer a memorial to you if the person you are requesting is a family member within the stated four generations. I also welcome corrections and additional information. I ask, however, that these be sent through the link at the top of the memorial page that states other information. I like being able to view the memorial while editing. Please provide source information for information that is not on the stone. This helps reduce emails regarding where the information came from (especially if it conflicts with someone elses) and helps fellow researchers follow the clues. It is also much easier to fix things when I get the information that way, as I get a direct link to the memorial. Thank you for understanding.|

Thank you so very much for adding the final resting place of my grandfather to the site. I have submitted some updated information, provided to me by my mother who is in possession of many of his personal papers and pictures.
We will comb through more of what we have and update again.

Thanks for the Bouton update!
I have sent an e-mail to the Cemetery Commission, but haven't heard back yet. The Union Cemetery I am referring to is in Charlton, Ma. It's in Worcester county. Not sure what you reference to Norwalk is. Charlton seems to have several people listed as buried in both Union and Barefoot. Regarding Jacob Miller 1787-1817, it would seem the Barefoot burial would be the correct one, as he owned the property and family is buried there. Upon his death, his wife, became owner. Would make sense that she would bury him there, but I don't like to assume anything. If I hear back from them I will let you know.

Thank you very much for applying the edits and helping to better link these families.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I have sent an e-mail to the Cemetery Superintendent in hopes of solving this mystery. It could be that many of these bodies were relocated, but I can find no mention of it anywhere. FYI, Union was established in 1856, I believe I had told you it was 1869.

You are one of the few people that ask me to provide references to update a memorial.
My references come from a number of sources but mainly from:
1. The 1929 book, George Martin of Salisbury Mass, and his descendants. Ever name listed in this book is an ancestor of mine by way of my grandmother who was a Martin. Mary and Edmund are in this book.
2. The State (Mass) birth records, and death index for them.
3. the SS death index
4. WWI & WWII draft records
with the exception of #1, all of these references are located easily on Ancestry.com, in this case the records on Ancestry. com verified the references in the "Martin Book". ( A copy of this book can be downloaded just do a search and it is available for free)
I don't have the time nor will I make an effort to provide you copies of this information, but rest assured, I almost never recommend updates or changes with out first verifying the information more that once. I also never ever make recommendations or updates to anyone other than an ancestor.
Also, even if I wanted to I don't have the time to provide copies of the references, I have found that approximately 60% of the memorials that were created for my ancestors are incomplete, either they lack a date or place of birth/death, or they lack a photo of the memorial. Most memorials created only have dates of the years, nothing else, as in the case of Mary and Edmund.
When I create a memorial, or find one that is incomplete I do my very best to make sure when I leave my "flower" that the memorial is as complete as possible based on the references, and material I find. If you get a chance look at the Memorials I have crated, and you will find 98% of them are complete, with the exception of a photo, which is pending a request, or not possible to get.

Sorry, no relation at all. I just photograph cemeteries when I have time.
