Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired in April 2005. I started doing genealogy in August 2005. It all started with my wife, Dianne,(Dianne E. Smith) and her interest. I've enjoy traveling to many cemeteries. Dianne would say, "My best friends were all cold". She passed away, November 12, 2007.

I have since married Bonnie (Snow) Johnson in 2009. I told her I would do my best NOT to let grass grow under her feet. Together, we enjoy "grave searching" for others as we can.

If you would like to use any photos I may have posted, all we ask if you give credit to us something like, "Photo courtesy of member #47060899".

Clarence Davis
You have a photo request for Clarence Davis in the North Road Cemetery, Harmony, Maine. I just photographed the entire cemetery and did not find him. Interestingly enough, there is a Clarence H. Pingree, son of Herbert and Viola, right next to the Davis family. He was 10 months old when he died. Not sure if there is a connection there, but thought I would pass it on and maybe you can sort it out.

You're welcome for the photos - I'm happy I was able to help. Please don't feel it necessary to cite me as the photographer. I don't need credit for anything I do. Just being able to help someone is good enough reward for me.

Best Regards,

Rick Weaver

You have supplied the photo for Enoch & Charles C Babcock. At the bottom of the stone is Enoch's son-in-law, Charles C Leighton. Could you add the photo to his page also?

Enoch Babcock #28122416

Charles C Leighton #75941466

Thank you.
