Bio Photo February 9, 2015

Hi People,

I haven't been adding too much lately but the photographing done by Ryan in Crystal Lake Cemetery in Gardner continues. I am fixing things as he and others find corrections for my memorials.

My Gardner database keeps growing and it's up to nearly 86,000 people. The currently uploaded file on has 76,000 people. I am adding in data from the surrounding towns. I finished Westminster and am currently working on Ashburnham.


If you do not wish to have a memorial online for your relative then let me know and I will delete it.

I have not cleaned the stones so you might come across a photo of one of your relative's stones and think, "what a mess". If you would like a better picture posted then I can go out and retake it no problem and do a little clearing away of dirt and weeds to boot. I just figured I could get all the photos done in a more timely manner and then make a better effort on the ones people actually are interested in seeing.

I have determined the genealogy of most of the original settlers (see my website below). Some are stubbornly evasive. Most of these people are buried in the Old Burial Ground while a few are in Green Bower and Crystal Lake Cemeteries. I have also traced the lineages of their progeny as far as the early 1900s and sometimes further.

I am not originally from this town and so I would be glad to transfer the memorials if you want them. As always, feel free to download any photo I've taken and I'd be glad to do some searching in my area if you can't do it yourself.

'Nuff said. Ed

RE: John Nyman [119908614]
Ok, just wondered since he's from the right state, about the right age

RE: Kirwan Bilson
Thanks Ed. There was a slight spelling difference too.

Albert T. Hamlet
Albert T. Hamlet might be a half-brother of my husband's 2nd great grandfather, John L. Hamlet, born in New Hampshire on 3 July 1814 and died in Enfield, Connecticut on 4 Jul 1868. Can you tell me the source of your information? I would love to get more details about John L. Hamlet. Maureen

Headstone photo does not match memorial
Ed, please delete the photo for Gideon Beamon, memorial ID 50710869. The photo is of his wife's headstone, Nabby Beamon. Thanks.

Eleazer Clark
Hello Ed,
You posted the memorial for Eleazer Clark and his second wife in Gardner. You also note that he is enumerated with his first wife in Detroit (1870). and later Cornville Maine (1880). In 1870 he is living with Ezra H and Abigail (Clark) Dawes. Abigail (b. VT or NH) was a widow when she married Ezra and I don't know her maiden name. Very likely she was related to Eleazer but I don't know how. Do you?
Many thanks
Tom Frank

Laura Eves Bosworth
Quite by accident I came across 2 memorial pages for this individual today on findagrave. One you created, and one was created by James
Bianco, memorial #135593228. The thing I find distressing is you list her burial at Winchendon and he lists her burial at Royalston. Perhaps the two of you can work together to confirm where Laura is buried? My interest is that two of her daughters married Coleman's, so I want to be sure I have her "planted" in the righ town. Thanks for the help.
