Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retiree living in western Massachusetts. My interest is in combining documented historical, genealogical and Massachusetts cemetery research to post and link Find a Grave memorials for individuals born before 1850 (and occasionally, their direct descendants).
With few exceptions, the information and links for my memorials were obtained from the headstone and Vital Records (to 1850) of the relevant Massachusetts town(s), as well as post-1850 Vital Records from the NEHGS database.
Current emphasis is on cemeteries in western Worcester and in eastern Hampshire Counties, Massachusetts.

Please use the Edit tab to:
(1) Suggest a correction/addition, and/or
(2) Request a memorial transfer.
NOTE: This is a part-time project; requests will be processed on a weekly basis.

Is there a reason you are creating so many duplicates in Hardwick Cemetery? It started with Almond and Melvina Stevens which I thought was intentional. Find a grave has an automated duplicate merge program which will merge two with the same information automatically.

Milicent Sears Blackmer Field
Milicent Field was born 20 September 1767 in Hardwick, Massachusetts to Freeman Sears and Mehitable Haskell. She married first David Blackmer on 1 December 1785 and second Rufus Field on 27 June 1816 in Greenwich, Hampshire Co, Massachusetts (also reported in Franklin Co). I believe she should be attached to the elder Rufus Field born 1744 whose wife Elizabeth died in 1814, rather than Rufus Field born 1780 whose wife Hannah did not die until 1825. Thank you for all of your submissions - it was very helpful to find all of the Rufus Fields!

Thank you for your photographs of the Waite family. She is my son-in-law's 5th Great Grandmother. I am too far away (Florida) to get there to photograph the stone. As another avid family historian I pass this on to his children. God Bless.

Have linked Daniel to his wife Eliza Patrick. Delighted you found Daniel as I had no idea where he was buried until I stumble upon your site. At 82, I stumble quite a bit, but share your desire to link members of my family trees with others.

RE: Hartwells in Hubbardston
Thank you for letting me copy and paste your headstone photos onto my Ancestry family tree. I think I am related to all of the Hartwells in Hubbardston to some degree and seeing your photos add to the feeling of connection. Funny you mentioned Roxa Sargent because she is my 4th great grandmother. I very much appreciate your offer for transfer some of the Hartwell memorial pages over to me, but no need, you have done so well with them. If my research leads to any additional information I will pass it along. Thank you again for taking the time with taking the photos and for sharing them.
Sincerely, Clair

Hartwells in Hubbardston
James Harvey Hartwell and his wife Charlotte Wyman Hartwell are my 3rd Great Grandparents. Your photos of the headstones at Forest Hill Cemetery are great. I was wondering if I may copy the Hartwell/Wyman photos and put them on my private family tree?
Thank you,
Clair Cushman
