Bio and Links
Bio Photo I try to be as accurate as possible with my submissions. If you find any errors contact me. use the "Edit" tab at the memorial and then "Suggest a correction" to send me any updated information or corrections.

IMPORTANT: make sure you include an email address or have the ability to be contacted when sending corrections. Sometimes I have been sent a correction that has a typo or error and I may need to contact you to verify the information

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives, This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, etc.

Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

Explain your relationship in the request!

Thanks so much for fixing Caleb's memorial. I had to double check my own math before I sent the request in myself. I just thought it might have been an "fat-finger" error. I really do enjoy reading your posts! ---Twig

Robert Burnham
Hi John,
I did a copy so I could blow up the stone pic of Robt. Burnham (Memorial# 77646853) and when you enlarge it it says infant sons of R.B. & L.C. TRUSCOTT, my guess the last name of Burnham was used for their middle names BUT they never survived....
Did a search on Find A Grave for R B Truscott and the closest one is in Maine....
What do you think ????

Stephen Maples Jr. Mem. #47131765
John, I think I might have made a mistake with my edit suggestion of his birth year. Some of my family records say 1721; others say 1731. It's very hard to see on the headstone if it says in his 20th year or 29th year. I would say redo his birth year for 1721. Sorry about inconveniencing you with edit. Thanks.

Amos Read
I sent an edit giving you a birth date. I wanted to let you know that this information comes from History of the Reed family in Europe and America
I have been using this book to learn about the Reads in my family tree. Amos is just a 6th great grand uncle, but interesting info in the book. The book says his wife was Mary Bennett of Scituate RI, died Jan 11, 1831. Mercy must be a nickname. Book does not give a birth date for her just a marriage date. It also list all their children. I will look around the book and see if any of the other graves can be linked as children.
Also Asa Read died 13 Aug 1814 was born 29 Jul 1748.
I found the grave for Jerusha, his second wife, but not a grave for Phebe Kinne, his first wife.
Thanks for the work you do

Thank you John for the transfer, I will now be able to link her husband, as he is buried right next to her, but I didn't see him listed. I am not sure, but I think there may be a child there also, but without a stone possibly, last name is KING.

Re: Memorial #89201005
Memorial #8920005 is apparently the son of my grandfather's first wife, Helen Patterson. The baby boy was either born dead or died shortly after his birth as did his mother, Helen. I didn't know he was named Raymond Elwyn. Can you tell me where you found that information?

Raymond Elwyn was the name of my uncle who was the first son of my grandfather's 2nd marriage to Luceille Madeleine Slee. Raymond Elwyn was born 4 years after Helen Patterson and her baby boy died.

I never knew the baby boy who died was actually given a name so would love to know where you found that information.

Thank you

John E Karlson
John E Karlson was my great Uncle that I just discovered. Thank you for posting the graves of his family. His brother Ernst Joel Carlson was my great grandfather. I was curious if there was any other information about John Karlson or his family
Thank you
