|Bio and Links|
Although I have lived in Scottsdale, AZ for 50 years, I was born in Great Bend, Barton, KS and my genealogy roots run deep there. Two pair of gr-gr grandparents and a pair of gr-grandparents settled there. Another pair of gr-grandparents settled in Stafford Co., which adjoins Barton to the south. I owe a great big thank you to the LDS Family History Center in Mesa, AZ. as I have spent many hours there and am grateful for all of the help that I have received. |

Hi Mr. Harris, I saw where you took a photo for this cemetery. Could you please give me any information on how to find this location? I'm trying to fulfill 3 photo requests. I can't seem to find any cemetery with this name on Google. I'm thinking perhaps it was under another name at some point. Thank you in advance. --- Amy W

If it wouldn't be to much trouble I really would appreciate you checking the other cemetery. I got cemetery from on online index of the cemetery.. so I'm confused but would really like to know for sure where he is buried. Thank you so much for your trouble.

I finally found a way to get to Hamilton Cem., and take some photos. Found Alexander Hamilton's gravestone and posted it on his gravesite.
|Liz L.||RE: Dana|
One last suggestion - the staff at the Cambridge Historical Society also knows a lot about the Dana family, as they were one of the biggest early families in the area. Their website is http://www.cambridgehistory.org/ and they do answer specific genealogical and historical questions relating to Cambridge.

|Liz L.||RE: Dana|
Did you get the information on a Cambridge death from the compiled book of transcribed vital records? If the source is listed as 'C.R.' it means it's from gravestone inscriptions and/or cemetery records, usually from gravestones, so what a source of 'C.R.' really means is that the person was buried in the town where they are listed. While people were most often buried in the town where they lived, a surprising number of people in the 1600's-1700's were buried in a nearby town instead, especially if they already had family members buried in the other town's burial ground.
Since the note in the Newton book says that the entry has additional information, I suggest you look through Newton's early death records on FamilySearch at https://www.familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https%3A%2F%2Ffamilysearch.org%2Frecords%2Fwaypoint%2FMMBX-DP2%3An6199728%3Fcc%3D2061550 and/or contact the Newton Town Clerk to request a copy of the record.
The City of Cambridge compiled a list of extant gravestones about 10-15 years ago that is up on their website. The only Richard Dana on the list is "Richard Henry Dana;" the list typically does not include birth/death dates and there are none listed for him. In addition to the possibility of the stone having been lost, it is also possible that your Richard Dana was buried in one of the many tombs and crypts in the cemetery, in which case he may never have had a stone at all.
I have one last suggestion to make. One of the children of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow married into the Dana family, and the family's house in Cambridge, now a National Park Service site, has an archive that includes a good amount of online information on the Dana family, as well as many materials in their archive. I suggest that you check out their site and consider contacting them if anything looks to be of interest. The link to the section of their site about their archive is http://www.nps.gov/long/historyculture/archives.htm Their finding aids about the Dana family's collections include compilations of genealogical and biographical information on a number of Dana family members.
Good luck with your research!
