Footprint of a person’s existence is the same.|
There are the physical traces of a now spiritual existence, and it can be very comforting to sit alongside the burial plot or mausoleum niche of a loved one. There is a sense of their continued presence there, in that place.
I consider cemeteries to be ‘liminal spaces’ – a place in the world which is ‘between’ the world of the living, and eternity. A doorway, if you will; a sacred space, relatively untouched by the hustle and bustle of the world around us.
If your loved one is interred in a local cemetery, why not take an hour or two today to sit in the doorway, to reside –if only for a while –with the angels?

I believe that Ann Chiarella died on August 6, 2016, and, not on August 5, 2016

Thanks for your message and for all you have done to help us find our family. They left their footprint here and it is up to us to remember them. Living in Florida, I am especially appreciative of your work in that location. Thanks again! Nancy

Thanks very much for the gravestone photographs.

Thanks for the transfer. I had a lot of information to put up, but then I tried to track down her children, and that got difficult. I think Capt Strong is her first husband which you put up along with his sons and an Elizabeth. There might have been some event or sickness in 1807 that was killing people in the area.

Sophie, If you are back at the cemetery, I am looking for Martha's mother, Martha Bell Cobb. Her Vermont vital records death information says she was born 1787 and died at age 53. She was listed as the wife of Dr. John R. Cobb and date of death Jan. 12, 1840. It says she is buried in Bay Cemetery. She was born Martha "Patty" Bell in St. Albans. Thanks so much

Sophie, Thanks so much for the picture of Martha's grave. She is the daughter of my 4th Great Grandfather, Dr. John R. Cobb. I have never been able to locate him in Vermont, but did find his first wife in Barber Cemetery. Thanks again for your time and trouble.

Thank you Sophie for for taking such lovely pictures of the Heald graves. In 2013, my daughter and I camped in Grand Isle State Park. We drove all over. The scenery was breathtaking. I bet we passed this cemetery. Its a big drive from Boston so I really appreciate you taking your time to take these pictures!! Linda
