Bio and Links
Bio Photo English Harger (Sounds like Larger). Jabez Harger entered America before 1700 Derby,CT.

Have documented Twining Cemetery in Tolland, Mass. Connected many memorials to relatives in other cemeteries. About a dozen fallen & broken stone are being repaired in the cemetery. Twining memorials have been transferred to a descendant of Elijah Twining.

I like to resolve duplicate memorials, even though not my family. Also, while those memorials are being fixed, family connections are added where possible. If you are aware and don't have time to fix a duplicate, please contact me. I believe this effort has value to the site. There are a lot of duplicates!!

Have established a website for Twining Cemetery to facilitate what needs to be done to preserve some of the stones that need mending.

Hugh Campbell Feedback - Thanks
Thank you for the feedback about the lack of any records and/or grave marker for Hugh Campbell (b.1685, d.1760) in the Blandford Cemetery.

I have retraced my sources and the data suggesting his burial in this cemetery is fairly questionable.

So I removed my photo request and updated my records and his Find A Grave memorial (not in any cemetery) to reflect that it is unlikely that this is his final resting place. I also added the following comments for others doing research on this fellow.

"June 2015 - Some records (no sources) suggest that the Blandford Cemetery in Blandford, Hampden Co., Massachusetts is his burial location. All cemetery stones in that cemetery have photos and his is not among them."

Thanks again for helping me get a hand on this little piece of my family history.

The strange part is when I began adding images to North Blandford she was "inactive" by the time I finished an hour later her status changed and "inactive" was gone next to her name. Perhaps by adding the images I re-activated her profile. I did not send any edits out until after I was done adding. Jim

Clark-Marshall Cemetery
I just uploaded new images I took Monday in Clark-Marshall. I also added 5 memorials which had been covered by snow on my first visit there a year and a half ago. Ive submitted a photo for the cemetery page which should go through shortly, it is a very small cemetery. Jim

George, so sorry that I didn't get these transferred to you as promised. We've had flooding and internet off and on, you may have seen on the news. Sun is shining today! thanks for all you're doing for the Twinings, Norma Hughes

North Blandford Cemetery
Hey George, I went up there a few days ago and just got to uploading my images this morning. I gave the entire place a good run through three times and thought I had photographed every headstone/monument, even those I thought at the time illegible (all of which I have identified from my photos and some research) yet there still remains 51 memorials without photos. Twho of the first four "unknown surname" memorials when you display all interments are of the Higgins family, Conwell & Margaret. I have created memorials for them as Martha is inactive and I do not believe the memorials she created are valid as they refer to no identifiable individual. I also filled the two McLintock photo requests. The photograph percentage should adjust shortly from 26% to 80%. Jim

Clarke Marshall Cemetery - Tolland
Hey George, that photo shoot was a year and a half ago in the dead of winter after someone in a distant state (I can't recall which!) asked me to try and find out who is buried there apart from the few memorials created. It's not too far from here so I went up and took every stone you could see (with all the snow, and it was about 10 degrees out). I need to redo the photos, it is a tiny little cemetery right smack against someones yard. I may have missed plaques laying flat under the snow.

RE: Twining Memorials
I was out all day and just now had time to make the transfers. I've been wondering...since you are doing so much research and actual labor on the Twinings, do you want all the names back to manage? Either way is fine with me. Thanks for all you've been doing!! Norma
