If anyone wants to use photos that I post for their family you have my permission to do so. All I ask is credit for the photo.

I have worked to maximize the number of photos in the following cemeteries:

In McPherson County, Kansas:
* Amish Cemetery
* Crestwood Memorial Park
* Hopefield Church Cemetery, Moundridge
* Kentucky Creek Cemetery
* McPherson Cemetery, McPherson
* Valley View Memorial Cemetery, Roxbury
* Zoar Cemetery, Inman

In Berkshire County, Massachusetts:
* Advent Cemetery, North Adams
* Ingalls Road Cemetery, Cheshire
* Old Churchyard Cemetery, Cheshire
* Pettibone Cemetery, Lanesborough,
* Saint Joseph's Cemetery, North Adams
* Saint Stanislaus Kostka Cemetery, Adams

I am presently working on:
Southview Cemetery, North Adams (This will go slow due to having to work with the city cemetery department)
Maple Street Cemetery, Adams

If there is a cemetery you would like me to focus on please send me a message.

Helen M. Hawley was my grandmother. Her maiden name was Hartell. Could you update your record please? Thank you.

I finally found the death of my 2x grandfather who died in Williamstown suddenly on a visit or short work trip from New York City. I am sure he or his wife did not have the burial fee and would be buried as an indigent. He might be in the Southview or Maple St. Cemetery but would need to search the town records to know where he would be interred. Do you know where I might look for those records? I really don't know where to go from here. Thanks. Joan Firth Kaysen

Hi Tom, I appreciate your work in the Berkshire area. I corrected the spelling of Villa Sandford's last name (My mother was her niece) but I can see why the error was made originally as the engraver mispelled Sandford on the tombstone. Cheers--Mary Stone

Larry Whartenby
Linehan Grave North Adams Massachusetts
Good Evening.

My name is Larry Whartenby.

I am in the process of trying to nail down all the names and facts dealing with my Irish ancestors who lived in and around North Adams, Massachusetts.
I was searching for the connection to the Linehan family. You posted a picture of the gravestone in St. Joseph's Cemetery in North Adams, Massachusetts.
I have also found family with the last name Whelan, most of whom seem to be buried [or have been removed to ] Soundview Cemetery which is one of the neighboring towns.
I was wondering if you are a descendant of Michael Whelan b. Ireland 1872 and Margaret Barry Whelan 1850-1930.
I would be grateful for any information you can help me find.

My email is
My cell is 914 413 4134. I live north of NYC.

Tom, Your postings for the Bush family have been a tremendous help to me and I thank you. You even solved my difficulty with Margaret "Maggie" Bush, your dates being right on. Many thanks

You have duplicated my memorial for her # 48264512
I am not related to her , If you would go to my memorial for her and take info off of my site and then let me know. I will delete mine. I have info that should be on her site. I just did not know where she is buried. You need to check all names not just cemeteries as there are so many now that are not buried (cremated) so burial is unknown . Thanks Bette.

Mary Dee Doran
Birth: 1844
Death: 1933

Family links:
John Doran (1854 - 1932)--Her spouse is not John Doran. This is his mother-in-law. Notice on the gravestone where there is a space to put his wife's information below his. His wife was Frances A. Furlong. Mary Dee was her mother by another husband other than Frances' Furlong father. Note also that Mary Dee was born a while before John Doran. Dee is a married name, not her husband's name.

I would appreciate if you could transfer the management of Mary and George Hamberg to me. I have a lot of family connections and biography to add to their sites.

If you would rather not, do you think you could loan them to me and I will transfer them back to you once I've made all the edits?

I am so glad you are doing such fine work recording all these cemeteries.
Thanks for your time.

McGinnis/Maple St. Cemetery, Adams
Hi Tom,
Please tell me how I can correct info for Walter McGinnis d. 14 Nov 1895. His parents are James and Mary (Nary) McGinnis as staated in his death record. His wife was Ellen "Nellie" Tighe as stated in her death record. They married sometime after the 1880 Census.
Thank you for any help in resolving this.

Memorila 148353273
I made a mistake and entered Simone Deslauriers's parents on Armand Chouinard's memorial. I have corrected Simone's memorial but found no way of removing her parents from memorial 148353273.
I sent an email to support@findagrave but nothing seems to happen.

I thought that since you are maintaining that memorial you might be able to remove them.

Sorry for the trouble
