Bio and Links
I grew up in Lexington, MA, which may explain in part my interest in colonial history. I retired a few years ago after 20 years as a computer programmer. I generally photograph colonial cemeteries or at least the oldest sections of them. I studied early New England history in the 90s. My cousins got me interested in genealogy a few years back. I've always loved photography.

I would like to thank everyone who has offered corrections and additions as any new information makes the memorials that much better. I always want more info.

Please, when offering corrections or additions, include the memorial number as I have created thousands.

And look at the rules set down by Find a Grave before asking for transfers.

I usually do all requests within 24 hours.

Feel free to use any of my photos. All I ask is that you credit me for taking them. Please email me if you're doing some for-profit thing. And do not post my photos from other websites to Find-a-Grave. Ask me to do it. Thanks!

Correction for Sally (Pickard) Todd
# 11562862 and her [sic] mother Mary Hammond Pickard # 11558469.
Mary Hammond Pickard died 1748 and her widower Jonathan Pickard remarried 10/31/1751 to Mary Hibbert (1718-1721). Thus she is the likely mother of Sally (Pickard) Todd.
I see your name a lot at this site and I want to thank you for all your incredible work.

Robert Harrington
I looked on his memorial page again and I now see the reference to the Harrington family book that you gave. Sorry I missed that the first time around. Thanks again for the summary.

Robert Harrington
Thank you for the excellent summary of his life. Is there a way to copy this info, crediting you, and your original sources, and how would I do that, were I to add this info you have written about Robert to my Parker and Craig Family Tree on Robert is my 8th great grandfather on my father's side. I am very happy to learn more about this early Harrington family, as my paternal great grandmother was Ellen F Harrington of Parkman, Maine. Or is it possible that this Harrington is also an ancestor of yours and that you have a public tree on ancestry? I am very careful to give full credit to a researcher, and if my request is not possible, I understand. Thank you.

Great Work
I was at the Union Cemetery in Georgetown this weekend to do some family research. The work you have completed at this cemetery is amazing. Just wanted to let you know I appreciate how well you have recorded the facts!

RE: William Gay, Westwood
The exact passage from Lt. William King's will, dated 11/2/1772, states "I give and bequeath to my beloved grandson William Gay about eighty acres of land I have at Granville alias Bedford if he arrive to the age of twenty-one years". Perhaps he is referring to Granville, Hampton County, Mass. close to Westfield, Mass. where Lt. William married his first wife, Bethia.

RE: Old Linebrook Cemetery, Ipswich
Ughhh I'm glad I searched first and didnt go and just add the memorials to Spring Street. :( I will have to keep an eye out for others with that GR6 notation. Hopefully someone else doesnt come along and add them using that reference creating dupes.

Its totally up to you if you want to add that note on them or not.

RE: Anthony and Martha Potter
Thank you, I got lucky, sun was perfect and the recent 8MB allowance for photos means we can load higher resolution. Several of your photos - even at a lower resolution - were better and I didn't file. I went to handle the photo requests, but the sun was so good, I ran my battery out taking photos. The homework and diligence you put into the cemetery is quite something.

RE: Anthony and Martha Potter
I have no source. Anything I sent you today is based strictly on the proximity of one headstone to another. I respect any decisions you make with regard to that.

Perry family
thank you for providing research on Josiah and Elizabeth (Bigelow) Perry (see #27178810). I have used your research on them to add to Josiah's memorial, and have credited your work. Many thanks for helping me sort out this ancestry of mine
