Thank you for your photo.

I am looking for Frank Merton Drinkwater b. 1866
His wife was Maria Lincoln Stackpole b. 1865

I believe they lived in Durham, Androscoggin County. Maine.

Thanks again,

Gravestone pictures, Stockbridge
Thank you very much, Ben, I truly appreciate your help. The pictures came out clear and readable, it is not an easy thing to take pictures of old headstones.

Again thanks,
Eve M

RE: Cumberland Couty coverage
Will do! and thanks for the contact fellow Windhamite. I love just visiting the cemeteries sometimes. They are so interesting! I try to claim before, but sometimes I'm just in a cemetery and don't have my app to check things out. So I snap away happily and load them onto the site when I get home. I am always surprised when one pops up letting me know I fulfilled a request. I apologize if I did that with a photo you specifically went out to take. I do really try to check and not take pictures in a cemetery that someone has claimed any of the photos. I know we can only claim so many, and some cemeteries have more that 20 requests, so I figure if someone has claimed their limit, they still might want to take the rest of what is there. I hope you have great success in finding those hard to find gravestones! All the best to you-Ann
