I have been retired for about a year (2008)now but not of my choice Wall Street sucked the heart out of this country and most of the world but I enjoyed over 45 years working as a civil engineer on many Military and Civilian projects. In retirement I began to go look over my parents Photo Albums and Shoe boxes and began my second career as a Genealogist and as a result of my research realized there was very little free information on burial records available on the internet. I was searching for my famous uncle Jack Burns and discover his Memorial on "Find a Grave". I was thrilled at my discovery and immediately joined the site and added my father and mother memorials. I also added some of our family photo of Jack at his memorial. I live just outside Boston, MA and I am looking forward to helping out other people find their love one grave site.|

Have you connected with Norman Dodge, also a Find A Grave member (46853609).
He lives in Washington state and comes east to do genealogy research. He has loads of info on Dodge family members and knows of a website devoted to the family.

I came across an obit for Oldham Gates.
Will you add it to his memorial?
Christian Messenger - Wednesday, 07 June 1865 - Page 182 -
Oldham Gates -
Of Farmington, Wilmot, was called home on the 22nd day of May, 1865, at the age of 67 years, leaving a widow and a number of children, with numerous other relatives and friends, to mourn their loss, indeed, but to enjoy consolation from the assured hope of his gain. Brother Gates united with the Baptist Church many years ago, and continued to be an esteemed member of it to the close of his life. He was a man of prayer. His demeanor in his family, in the Church, and in the community, was remarkably upright, pacific, and kind. During his protracted illness the assiduous attentions of the widow now bereft, and the remarkable kindness of his grateful and affectionate children, of whom some came from Boston, Bridgewater, &c. to sympathize with him, and to promote his comfort, tended greatly to console and cheer him. He was enabled to endure his sufferings with much patience and fortitude; and his end may be truly said to have been “peace.” – Communicated by Rev. C. Tupper.

If there are memorials I have posted and you are a family member, just request a transfer and I'll be happy to do it. I'm not very active on Find A Grave now to I check in once in awhile.

I discovered 09 Dec 15 that you manage the grave information for Eliza A. Dodge Bridge.
She is my G-G-G- Aunt and her father (Isaac A) is my G-G-G- Grandfather.
I have a "brick wall" in tracking down Isaac's parents and his wife's parents. I also have very little information on Eliza and husband.
I even have contacted the Mt. Hope Cem., in Mattapan a couple years back to confirm her and her husbands (William) burials there...thy responded back that they had no record of burials for either. (I know Massachusetts death records that they are supposed to be in Mt. Hope and that cemetery records can be incomplete).
Can you confirm your Find A Grave data? Are you any relation to Eliz? As far as I can determine, Eliza had no children.
I live in Maryland and was born and raised in Mass.. I have been working on my genealogy for the past 40-45 years.
Appreciate any information you can add/confirm.

|N.E. Morgan||RE: Longley Cemetery|
Sorry it has taken so long for me to reply. I was on a work assignment in Beijing, China for the summer and did not monitor my FindAGrave account.
The cemetery you refer to, near Paradise, Annapolis Co., N.S. (listings at: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nsannapo/cemeteries/paradise_lane_longley.html) is different that the one that I worked on. The folks interred in the Paradise cemetery I suppose belong to the second and third generations of the Longley and Dodge families in Nova Scotia. The cemetery I partly documented is the 'Upper Granville, Longley Cemetery' (listings at: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nsannapo/cemeteries/upper_granville_longley.html) and is the pioneer cemetery – i.e. includes the founders of the Longley family in N.S.
I have recorded a few cemeteries in Annapolis Co. in FindAGrave, but honestly the reason for including the one in Upper Granville is because it was next door to where my Uncle Wayne used to live. It was during a visit a few years ago (with another uncle who like me is very interested in local cemeteries), when I learned that my Uncle Wayne lived next door to an overgrown, neglected cemetery. I took a few pictures and later did some research into some of the folks who rest there. I recall that the O’Dell Museum in Annapolis Royal has a booklet with transcriptions and b&w photos of all the graves in the Upper Granville Longley cemetery, published years ago when it was in better repair.
Finally, the Longley family members buried in both cemeteries are distant cousins of mine, as the founder of their family in America, William Longley Sr., is one of my forbearers (though my great-grandmother, a Parker). However, that was 11 generations ago....
The information you suggested has been placed on his memorial. Thank you very much for the update. I am always glad to add information provided.

Good morning! =) I just noticed you added a photo of Auburn Cemetery to my great uncles page. I was wondering if you are close by there? I have been wondering if he had a grave stone, I put a photo request out a while ago and have never heard. I wish I could go look myself but I am in Washington State and its quite a ways away. Thank you so much for adding the cemetery photo. I really appreciate that.
