Bio and Links
Bio Photo trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.

Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County.

Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.

Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.

I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.

My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed...

RE: Photo request
Lady Goshen,

Thank you for suggestion. I presumed you were from Goshen. This is the first time I made a request, and didn't know how to do it.

Photo request
Can you get a photo of a farm grave?

Old Carpenter farm at or near old stone house at Mapes Corners, Goshen?

died Mar 10, 1790
59yrs. 5 mos.

Encryption cited was recorded in 1882 so the stone may no longer be available.

Lyme Cemeteries
Dear LadyGoshen,

I am amazed at your contributions - 19,000 photos! That is awesome! I was going to start photographing the Old Lyme, NH and Lyme Highland Cemeteries, but if you have photos of them that you are planning to upload, I'll work somewhere else. Let me know if you have a minute.

RE: Scott
Source for information regarding Ann Scott is the Scott Genealogy:

My apologies for not citing the exact page number. I failed to Cc myself when submitting a request for updates, so I don't recall exactly which Ann this is.

RE: Mary Bell Martin King #116719232
Just got a message from the funeral home. They are going to be out at that cemetery tomorrow. The fellow is going to see if he can find the location of the grave(s) and take a picture. If he is successful, saves time and travel. Will let you know. Pat

If it's out of your normal way, I can just request a photo via Find A Grave. Pat
