Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired in April 2005. I started doing genealogy in August 2005. It all started with my wife, Dianne,(Dianne E. Smith) and her interest. I've enjoy traveling to many cemeteries. Dianne would say, "My best friends were all cold". She passed away, November 12, 2007.

I have since married Bonnie (Snow) Johnson in 2009. I told her I would do my best NOT to let grass grow under her feet. Together, we enjoy "grave searching" for others as we can.

If you would like to use any photos I may have posted, all we ask if you give credit to us something like, "Photo courtesy of member #47060899".

Hosea Smith
Hi, John
I see you listed Hosea Smith in the Butterfield Cemetery in Prentiss ,Maine . I have been photographing the cemetery and have not run across him I guess my question to you is did you actual see the stone? and could you point me in some direction as to what part he is in? Trying hard to find it but to no avail.

Thank you, John and Bonnie, for the transfer. I'm going to start working on Robert's profile this afternoon.

By the way, I cannot count the times I have used Diane's quote, "Some of my best friends are cold." Too, too funny. Her memory lives on.

Thanks again,

My pleasure. Did you know John Denton? He was my mentor and one of the greatest historians I have ever known.

The Charron's memorials are as complete as I have information on them. The only information that I haven't added is their location ...Plot, and Grave number.
