|Bio and Links|
In early 2011 following the death of my mother at age 95, as I was cleaning out drawers and boxes, I came across scads of family genealogy information and photos that had been accumulated by my father and maternal grandparents over the years. Since that time, I have become obsessed with continuing to trace my family's lineage in the hopes of passing the information down to my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.|
When I became stuck trying to find the death location of one of my second great grandfathers, Josephus Morgan, I found it on Find A Grave. I was so impressed with this website and the volunteer who had taken photos of his grave, I decided to become a volunteer and give something back to what I had been given. While I signed up to volunteer earlier in 2012, it is only in June that I have taken the plunge and claimed/fulfilled my first missions. I have been bitten by the bug, and hope to complete many more. My wife Marsha has joined me in helping to find sites and trimming the grass and sweeping the leaves off markers. I will be happy to transfer management of memorials I have created to any relative.

|ZenCity||RE: Lucy Waterhouse in Woodlawn|
I don't have any information on Lucy Jennie Waterhouse. I don't know where the person who created the memorial got the information on her burial site, but I suspect it was from a list created by a cemetery walker some time ago. The marker, like Lucy, may have been lost to time. I only have about 5000 Waterhouse names in my database at present and she's not one of them. I have been unable to find her in any Maine death records or any indication of her in or around Westbrook on the 1910 census. I will continue to look for her in available records, but I may never find her. My research, however, is slowing down temporarily so we can try to do our part to photograph and document some of the local cemeteries now that we're moving into autumn. Hopefully we will have a productive winter! Thanks for letting me know about the problem with Lucy's headstone.

Peter, I created the memorial for Kenneth Randall. At present all it has on it is his name. Thanks for locating his marker.

|Memerizion||RE: Helen Kalivas|
Okay! Thanks. :)
|Memerizion||RE: Wife of Nicholas Kalivas|
Thank you so much for the beautiful headstone photos. I created a memorial for Helen. Thank you so much for locating her. And yes, please upload your beautiful photos for her.
Many thanks! :)
|ZenCity||RE: Waterhouses in Woodlawn|
I sent in the photo requests. Thanks for the offer of more photos. I'm researching the Waterhouse families of the United States so any time you see a marker for one of them I'd be grateful to see a photo. They usually reinforce what I already know, but sometimes they hold some surprises. It's great to have a picture to compare to the transcription. Find A Grave limits the number of photo requests I can make weekly, but I will continue to put up people in Woodlawn as restrictions allow. I can't wait for the weather to cool down out here in West Texas/Southern New Mexico so that I can devote some time to photographing headstones as well. Thanks again and enjoy what I'm sure is a beautiful Maine summer!
