I've always loved wandering through old cemeteries, and wondering about the lives of those who were buried there. Now I'm excited about taking photos of those stones before they crumble and that bit of history is lost.

I've also been researching my family history for many years, and am working on finding the final resting place of the members of my family "forest".

RE: Elias Merrill
Just to publicly correct my mistake: I found my original notes and map, and it is Gardiner Merrill, his wife Eliza Boothby Merrill and their daughter Louisa who are buried in that other plot on the SOUTH side of Flag Pond Road.

Elias IS in the Merrill Cemetery on the NORTH side of Flag Pond Road with Asa and Miriam.

I noticed there are no photos. I will try to find the ones I took years ago--or take some more next time I am there.

RE: Elias Merrill
I am hoping to find my records of the 3-4 stones before creating the cemetery in FindaGrave. With several moves, since I took those notes and my find anything not working in my genealogy program, I need to do some searching.

Did you see the map of the big Merrill cemetery I added to Asa's memorial? I got the information from a combination walking it and notes my grandmother had for some of the unmarked graves.

I am descended from Betsey's brother Levi. My grandmother (Levi's g-grandaughter) was brought up by Levi and Syrena at the house that Asa and Miriam built on Flag Pond Rd.

Ida Luthera Martin Holt
Sorry for the delay in answering your question... I have searched high and low, but ironically I cannot find anything that specifically states her middle name is Luthera. I was positive that I had some documentation but can't find it now. The birth certificate actually says Ida L. Martin so technically she doesn't have a middle name. Most of her documents don't give even list a middle initial. Wish I could be more helpful... I am curious, how is she related to you....

RE: William Bishop
Debbie email me at my email address on my Find A Grave page. I can tell you more about abt the Bishop family tree and share info if you want it. We can then see how you are related to my hubby. BTW William is first cousin 4x removed, sorry I did not put that first time. You are closer and need to keep him.

William Bishop
My husband's first cousin. You did not mention that you only transfer within Find A Grave guidelines, so I was hoping you would honor my request.

South Bridgton, Maine cemetery
You posted his grave in Find A Grave. Who might be able to provide information concerning this person buried at South Bridgton? He is Asahel (or Acel) Foster, b. 16 June 1749 in Danvers, Massachusetts, d. 20 February 1820. He appears to have served in the War for Independence. I need to document his service.

Debbie sorry I was so slow to add info to these graves. I was just going through old emails and found yours. In adding the town of Canaan the only option is in Somerset County. If Canaan was ever in Kennebec County the system does not show it. I am not familiar with this area or the formations of counties.

I've linked Hiram to his parents. Before I read your second message, I figured out what I had done incorrectly. You're right, and I have written to Edit to ask them to mark it as a cenotaph. At first glance I thought I'd created a duplicate record of yours and was aghast. But all will be well as soon as Edit does its thing.
