I love the peace and quiet of cemeteries. (There are no telemarketers calling.) I also love taking pictures. The exercise is at my own pace. The stones are interesting, and they absolutely need to be documented before they are lost to the ravages of time. |
I'm 10 generations forward from my Mayflower ancestor George Soule. I'm 13 generations from my New Haven founder Capt. Nathaniel Turner. 13 Generations is 1024 direct ancestors (doesn't count siblings etc.) My husband also has 1024 direct ancestors going back to the Mayflower. That's 2048 direct ancestors. I haven't found them all in the 40+ years I've been researching. But I'm still looking. Thanks to all of you members at Find a Grave, who are making finding their burial places easier.
PLEASE use the EDIT tab for suggestions, corrections and transfers. I'm happy to make changes, but I'm going to ask you for a source, if it's not directly on the stone. (Using the new edit system you can send source information through the "Suggest any other correction or addition" line.) The internet is a wonderful thing for genealogists but it's also very good at spreading misinformation, and I am trying very hard not to spread undocumented genealogy. That's one of the reasons I love Find a Grave, because I can look directly at a gravestone and see exactly what it says and don't have to depend on second and third hand information. Happy hunting.
PHOTOS OF GRAVESTONES. Please feel free to use mine, that's why I took them. I do like to get credit, though. "ASB"
PHOTOS OF PEOPLE. I've posted them to be enjoyed by visitors to Find a Grave. I was a little taken aback to see my mother's photo on Ancestry. So you're welcome to use them, for your personal use, but I would appreciate it, if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites.

Thank you for adding the info to the memorial of John Gore and for taking care of his wife Hannah Carpenter Gore and linking her to her parents. We appreciate your good work.
|Dirigo 04736||Re Sylvia Ringdahl|
once again here is the link to her maiden name
if this is not enough please remove all the edits I have sent you. I spent serious time researching for Sylvia, if you cannot handle adding her maiden name after you were sent a link to her marriage record and accepting links to parents with the same name, might I suggest you transfer management to me and I will properly honor Sylvia C (Trone) Ringdahl.

So appreciate your good description of the lay of the land in St. George Cemetery, Southbridge, MA. Never been there so the info helps identify what to expect. Hopeful we will find family plots when we visit early Oct. Thanks for your guidance.

Hello, thank you for the edits at St. George. I took about 100 pictures this past weekend and still have about 50 or so to post. The only family I have there is the Blain stone up by the road . There is no need to transfer the memorials if you want to keep them . I just wanted to link them, and when possible I look up the death information, obits on geanology.com. Thanks again for creating all the memorials in St. George. Jerry

Taking a road trip early Oct. to Massachusetts. Hoping to visit St. George Cemetery, Southbridge Worcester County Massachusetts to visit family graves and take picture of headstones. Ancestory search for Hilaire Lavigne with Memorial # 93808530 has come up as well as Hedwidge Duff Lavigne Memorial# 93808529 and Onesime Lavigne Memorial# 93808532 are the main focus. Record shows these records were created by ASB and added July 18, 2012. How do I find the plot where they are buried? Called St. George Cemetery but they have no record of family name buried there. Kind of a mystery from this end. Our family documents states they were buried in St. George's Cemetery in Southbridge MA. I'm at a loss of how to get info on the "plot" where they are buried. Any suggestions/help you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks . . Mike
I wanted to thank you for the transfer of Ennis N. Searles. Some emails quickly got by me and I wanted to make sure I gave you a big thanks for the all edits and the transfer.

Hello, Bertha Wade 120776416 is the daughter of Clovis Wade and Martha Wade 120776415.. The site shows that Martha is listed as Bertha's wife instead of daughter. If you please update this, I would appreciate it. Thank you, Laurie

|Carolyn Troupe Stoll||Oscar Tourtellotte|
Can you find out if Oscar's wife Gladys Mary
Tourtellotte 1907-1997 is buried with him?
His memorial # is 96895074. Is there a grave stone
with his name on it to add to his memorial, and her if she is buried there also. Can you do a memorial for her if in that plot?
Thank you, Carolyn 47697510
|allison ||RE: Spencertown Cemetery|
ASB, I am sorry for your trouble. I did not post the memorial, but only requested photos. Upon getting your information I searched Tioga County Joyce Tice Site, and it confirms that they are at "Spencer Family Cemetery, Union Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania", which Find A Grave lists as only "Spencer Cemetery". I looked in that Cemetery and it seems their stones are listed there - and low and behold, you are the one that posted them! OMG! I will contact Find A Grave to let them know of the incorrect Duplicates at the other cemetery. I hope I can trouble you if I need any more stones that are not posted. I will do a thorough look on Joyce site first though. Thank you again, Allison in NC.
