|genealogygirl||RE: Thank you|
Yes! Peter Manson Jamieson is my Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather. His daughter Susan Elizabeth Jamieson married John E. Myers and had Florence Isabell "Belle" Myers, who was my Great-Great-Grandmother. If you want to and have time to, you might want to read a fascinating newspaper account on Find-A-Grave about Belle's 2nd husband, Willis Gorman Lentz. He was murdered by the couple next door.
You're welcome about Peter's sponsorship. (I sponsored Gorman's site, as well.) I'm doing HUGE genealogical research, and whenever I'm 100% sure about someone's ancestral connection to me, I bring them into my virtual cemetery. Then, I leave flowers or some other significant token at their gravesite and put a heart by their name so anyone searching for them can easily find them. I've done it a lot--almost 60 times already, starting with my beloved mother who died in 2005--but I do think it's well worth it.
Thanks for listening to me about my genealogy love. I hope you have a great (I was going to say evening, but I see it's after 1:00 a.m.--yikes!) . . . a great day tomorrow.

I thank you for the transfer. I will update these records with the primary records I have ordered to document this family more fully. Thanks again for making the post. It is very helpful.
|Whispers From The Grave||RE: Thanks|
You're welcome. I'm so sorry I was unable to find the stone you wanted.

I could not find pictures or names of three family memebers in your Littleton list so I added them and their heasstones

Did you by any chance have Catherine Wolf and her Husband in the Fairview Cemetery in Unionville, Iowa? I posted every headstone in the Fairview Cemetery, Udell, Iowa , and there was not any posted. Now there are two, the ones I did and the ones you did! Did you take the pictures posted to the memorial or did you take them from another site? Thank you for your time!
Your Very Welcome, Always glad to help...

There is a list of people buried in this cemetery at interment.net (http://www.interment.net/data/us/ma/middlesex/oldeast/buryinglist.htm). This list includes the plot numberand birth and death dates, if known. The cemetery is very old and many of the tombstones are not very legible, so having the plot number helps quite a bit in locating the grave.
However, several of your photo requests are not included in this list (which is sanctioned by the Newton Historical Society and the Newton History Museum as authentic). If these people are buried in East Parish Burying Ground then there is probably no longer a marker. You could contact the Newton Historical Society who may be able to provide more information.
As it stands now, I think that it is unlikely that your photo requests for the following tombstones will be fulfilled:
Thomas Hammond d. 1675
(Note that there are several graves for people with some of these same names in the cemetery, but with different birth and death dates.)
Your request for Thomas Hammond (b. 1630 d. 1678) may be the Thomas Hammond who settled in Newton in 1650 and is listed on The Settler's Monument. Unfortunately the location of his grave is unknown.
There is a book about the cemetery (does not include a complete map or listing of graves) that is available from the Newton History Museum for about $10. The book is "Where Newton Began, A Guide to the East Parish Burying Ground" by Thelma Fleishman, Newton Historical Society, 2007 ISBN: 0-9755019-0-9. You can find the Newton History Museum at http://www.ci.newton.ma.us/jackson/

Hello, I plan on going down in the spring. I would be very interested in locating this cemetery & taking photo's for you. I also connect to Katherine Salyer Nickell. She & Alexander "Alex" would be my 3rd great grandparents. Their daughter, Mahala Angeline & her husband, George Washington Blanton would be my second great grandparents. I live in southern Ohio & try to get to Johnson Co. in the spring & fall. I will try to find this cemetery & let you know how it goes.
