Oak Grove and Wesleyan cemeteries
Thank you so much for your work in the Oak Grove and Wesleyan cemeteries in Gloucester. I'm happy to see at last the stones for my Stanwood and Read relatives. This is wonderful to know where they are.

Thank You
Thanks so much for taking the time to take a picture of my great uncle's gravestone. George McLeod was my grandmother's brother, one of their other brother's was killed in the "famous" Needham Bank Robbery by the Millen Faber gang. I no longer live on the east coast so can't get there to visit the grave so this is much appreciated.

Hi John,
I am truly stunned. Where to begin. How can I thank someone who has taken the time to visit 2 cemeteries (Oak Grove & Beech Grove) in 2 days. Oak Grove was fairly easy in that it only required taking 2 tombstone photos. But Beach Grove was a totally different story with a photo request on my part of 17 in 3 different lots. What pleased me the most is that you included 4 people that are clearly part of the broader Thurston family (Arthur N., Margaret Corliss, Levi W. & Charles K.),and, even though I had memorials for them, I did not include them in my original tombstone request list. Certainly I should have done this. Thank you so very much and, for the reminder, that I should be more careful in the future.

I noticed that you have “claimed” Samuel D. Thurston, Jr. (memorial #150031257). I assume that you will be taking tombstone photos at some point for both Samuel & his, wife, Mary Etta. Obviously I am in no hurry for this.

A couple of question about a few others that were on my tombstone request list. Since you did not post a photo for Lemuel Nightingale (b. 1853, d. 1854, Memorial #145580135) in Lot #22 (357) Elm Ave, Sec 5, I assume that there was no tombstone in the lot for him. Is that true of Henrietta McGaw Harrigan (Memorial #145586817) as well? She is also in Lot #22 (357) Elm Ave Section 5. And finally, would you please post the tombstone photo for Arthur N. Thurston (Memorial #150361599). He’s on the tombstone with his wife, Mary Etta Thurston which you have already posted.

I am pleased that you have heard from Joan Chisholm. Certainly, since Mary is her great-great grandmother, and even though Joan didn’t ask me, I plan to transfer the memorial I created to her very soon. I just need to do a little more research on who, I believe, is her great-great grandfather..

Certainly after all of the above you should go to the top of the list as one of the most cooperative FindAGrave volunteer tombstone photographers! I wish I lived closer by so I could take you out to dinner as a show of my appreciation for all you have done for me! Thank you so very very much.

Thank you so much for the picture of my great great grandmother's grave. I know so little of this side of my family and appreciate this addition!

Hi John,

For once I am speechless. I never dreamed that someone would take the tombstone photos on the very day I requested them. It just doesn’t get any better than this. Your photos are great; nice and clear, so easy to read. Despite my request for 6, I was glad it only required taking 2 photos. I hope you had other marker photos you wanted to photograph in Oak Grove Cemetery as well. I do not live in Massachusetts so I want you to know that I am most appreciative of people like you who volunteer to do this work. Thank you so very much!

Thanks so much for the Timothy McCarthy photo. May I use it in my Family Tree? I see Limerick,Ireland on the Inscription. It's hard to read. Did you happen to see what it said? Thanks again!
