Bio Photo November 3, 2015 ----

I finished my Gardner and surrounding towns database. It centers on Gardner but I included information on the early residents of Templeton, Winchendon, Westminster, and Ashburnham, Massachusetts garnered from the town histories, censuses, and vital records. It is uploaded to and has over 101,000 individuals.

Thus ends about a 5 year project which had its roots in my initial foray into photographing the stones of Greenbower Cemetery in Gardner.


If you do not wish to have a memorial online for your relative then let me know and I will delete it.

I have not cleaned the stones so you might come across a photo of one of your relative's stones and think, "what a mess". If you would like a better picture posted then I can go out and retake it no problem and do a little clearing away of dirt and weeds to boot. I just figured I could get all the photos done in a more timely manner and then make a better effort on the ones people actually are interested in seeing.

I have determined the genealogy of most of the original settlers (see my website below) of Gardner MA. Most of these people are buried in the Old Burial Ground while a few are in Green Bower and Crystal Lake Cemeteries. I have also traced the lineages of their progeny as far as the early 1900s and sometimes further.

I am not originally from this town and so I would be glad to transfer the memorials if you want them. As always, feel free to download any photo I've taken and I'd be glad to do some searching in my area if you can't do it yourself.

'Nuff said. Ed

Samuel Bean Grave Info
Hello Ed,
The info you posted for Samuel Bean Find A Grave Memorial # 51709105 indicates Samuel was married July 2, 1685 but that is aslo listed as his date of death. Can you shed some light on this?

Thanks Ed I have added Sidney L Paddock's grave site. I note that he shows as a sibling on his own page so I need to work on that. I will add my mother next and additional information

Arthur Kew
Hi Ed. I found you have this memorial for Arthur that says he was born and died in 1895. I was wondering where you got this information because I have Thomas Arthur born in 1895 but he lives a full life so I'm confused. Can you shed some light? Thanks, Alicia

RE: Hi
Thanks Ed,

I finally got back out to Crystal Lake a bit today. Tackling the last of the back row. Lots of immigrants with worn stones and horribly misspelled names. Argh. Ripped a huge hole in the crotch of my favorite pair of shorts to from squatting so much. A little embarrassing.

People always visit this cemetery too and stare at me me or call the cops on me. LOL. It's why it has taken me so long to get this done and of course LIFE. It's more like a park there with a nice view of the lake and park benches and lawns for people to hang out. I like secluded cemeteries where it's just me and the dead.
