Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found this on another members profile and it truly expresses how I feel as well:

"The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people."

There is quiet dignity and history among the trees, headstones, flowers and water fountains in the cemeteries - respect has been earned.

I'm searching for information for the following Families: Lavash, Lavache, Hynes, Higgins, Donohoe,Bursey, Bradbury, Brown, Demeo, Hayes, Sawin. I've been researching my roots for over 20 years and have now started to record cemeteries for others.

I've also started adding any Irish and Canadians that I come across, in tribute to my ancesters, military graves & any children that I find - they seem to be the hardest to find & I'm recording them as I find them.

This is an abbreviated list of cemeteries that I have visited so far - I've visited some of these because I have family members there -

Belmont Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Calvary Cemetery & Maus. - Waltham, MA
Cambridge Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Common Street Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Cudworth Cemetery - Scituate, MA
Evergreen Cemetery - Marboro, Ma
Evergreen Cemetery - Leominster, MA
Grove Hill Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Highland Meadow Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Holy Cross Cemetery & Maus. - Malden, MA
Mt. Auburn Cemetery - Watertown/Cambridge, MA
Mt. Feake Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - Arlington, MA
Westview Cemetery, Bedford, MA
North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Olde Burying Place - Arlington, MA
Old Burying Ground, AKA Ye Olde Burying Ground in Lexington, MA
Old Burying Place - Watertown, MA
Puritan Lawn Cemetery - Peabody, Ma
Ridgelawn Cemetery - Watertown, MA
St. Pauls Cemetery - Arlington, MA
St. Patricks Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Woodlawn Cemetery & Crem. - Everett, MA
and a few others.
I normally photograph the whole family plot if it's more than a single grave & will post those as well.

Thank you to Linda Shepard Salzer for all her pics, corrections and updates for all the memorials that I set up for North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - I greatly appreciate it :)

RE: Joshua Twombly Memorial 131910619
Hi Sharon,
I have found where Ella and Ruel Hussey had five sons. I have found that three died as babies or small children. They may be buried there also:
Frank b. 1889 d. 1896, Alfred b. 1891 d. 1891, and unnamed b. 1892 d. 1892. They had Henry J. and Charles W that appear to have lived into adulthood. Its very possible that the small babies may be on the headstone also.
Have a nice day,

RE: Joshua Twombly Memorial 131910619
Hi Sharon,
I just found a death record for Ella and it shows she was buried in Mount Auburn. I am now trying to find something on her husband. Thank you so much for your help in this matter.

Joshua Twombly Memorial 131910619
Hi Sharon,
On the headstone that reads Twombly, you noted: Twombly/Hussey Family Plot Lot 5074. Could you give me names of the Husseys in that family plot? Did you by chance take pictures of their headstones? I am looking for an Ella F Pierce who was raised by Joshua and Mary. She also married a Ruel W Hussey. I see there are other Husseys buried in that cemetery but the lots are in the 1000 range.
Have a nice day,
