Hello All,
WEE talked me into this...and I've been having a great time taking headstone photos from France, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Easter Island, Saigon, Africa, Iceland, Greenland, and all over New England. Rather nice hobby, now that I am retired.

Suggestions are appreciated.
Bob

RE: Margaret Martin #127858185
Ok, I have added photo requests for Mary Duffy and Robert Jr. It seems somewhat overkill since it will E-mail everyone in the area, but I guess it works.

I am also going to add Margaret back to the request queue, as someone else might be able to find her actual headstone if it's there. I may add Hannah and Michael Martin in the future, too.

Bob,
Thank you so much for the wonderful photos of the Collins and French family grave markers at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. I very much appreciate the timely and outstanding efforts of Find a Grave volunteers like you.

Margaret Martin #127858185
Hi Bob, thanks so much for photographing my great-great-grandparents' headstone! One question though about Margaret. Do cemetery records indicate she was buried in the same plot as Robert (her son), Catherine, and the others? That would surprise me, as she died more than 70 years before any of them, and (as you noted) her name isn't on the headstone. Is it possible she has a stone elsewhere? I had speculated she might be buried near her sister Hannah (#82469422) and Michael Martin, but that was just a guess.

Also, I have created memorials for Robert Jr. and Mary Duffy (#128392393 and #128392440), and I'd like your photo to be added to them, so it'd be great if you could do it, or I had your permission to do it myself.

Best, and thanks again!

RE: WILLIAM RIXON
Hi Bob
I would love to see a photo of Philip and William's gravestones. I am in the USA so hope the time difference is not against us.

Thank you so much for all the work that you put in for Find a Grave. It is much appreciated.

Hello Bob,
My great grandfather's Find a Grave site has a statement about 'no pictures being posted.' I cannot find a way to edit that statement as I very much would LIKE to have a photo of his gravestone (as well as one of his wife Kate (Nolan) Morrison. Can you let me know what I can do? Thank you. Janet

Sarah Bridgman Tileston 66676740
Hi! I received your request to change the spelling of this surname to Tilestone. I'm not going to do so immediately, but will definitely think it over and do some research. I am a descendant (imagine you are too), and everyone else in my line for whom I find a record spells it Tileston. (Of course, in the 1600's spelling wasn't yet standardized.) I've not seen it Tilestone for this particular woman. I'd be pleased if you could tell me where you find this spelling. Thanks! Meanwhile, I'll do some digging...

Nora Hurley
Hi Bob -
You sent me a note on Nora Hurley (# 127195275) asking me to edit date if death to 5 Aug 1954 and location of death to unknown.

I was able to find Nora's death notice (using the info you provided) and she did die 15 Aug 1954 in Cambridge MA. Did the stone say 5 Aug? I know its been a few days, but I just saw your edit request. Thx

PS - I just sent in a Photo Request for a Catherine A Donovan (Gunn) at St Paul's in Arlington. I think this Donovan is my Donovan's cousin - but in that case, she would be Catherine A Gunn, maiden name Donovan. The owner of the memorial (42968428) on Find a Grave hasn't responded to my emails. Though, I think he updated the memorial with info I provided, so he must have received it.

Thanks again for the help with Sadie and Aaron Rose. I am glad you took the photos of all the tombstones in the same plot.
