Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member of R.I. Historical Society,Johnston Historical Society,VFW post 1282 and Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. I am a graduate of Mount Pleasant High in Providence R.I. I enlisted in Air Force and spent most of my time overseas.I am a Vietnam Vet and spent 10yrs with the Air National Guard.I retired after 40yrs with Pratt & Whitney as a jet engine inspector and the last 10yrs as an FAA inspector for the company.I have been researching my family tree as a hobby.I walk a lot of historical cemeteries looking for my ancestors final resting place.I take a lot of photos and clean up some plots of the family when I find them.My mothers side of family (Whitford)dates back to the 1600's.They are called swamp yankees around here.I have many historical cemeteries located a short distance from my house.I recently became involved with Pocasset cemetery in Cranston.I only live 2 miles from their.I do a lot of cleaning of grave sites and take photos as I go.I started a page on facebook for the cemetery if anyone is interested.I use ancestry.com for the info I enter on the bios.If you find a error please send me a note and I will correct it.
News flash:As a result of all my work at this cemetery they have put me on as a board member.I will try and fill out more photo request when I figure out the filing system which is very old. Another reminder on photo request. Sometimes their is no marker for the grave only an empty plot. Sometimes the stone is overturned on the inscription and to heavy to flip over. Other times it is a flat marker that gets buried over time.
FYI All the info I obtain is from burial cards that I have access to. I also use burial cards for edit information. I was posting them on memorial but found out that F.A.G. does not want that posted.
I do appreciate all edits sent to me. My goal is to honor all the individuals that are interned here with an accurate memorial so they are not forgotten

Henry Angell Wells
Thank you, George, for digging up and resetting Henry's headstone. It was so buried that only his name was visible and now we have full birth and death dates. Thanks to all who helped.

Augusta Ekberg
I'm a grandchild of John Payne Foxall whose first wife was Augusta Ekberg of Providence. A graduate of the University of Texas, Austin I've dabbled in genealogy, history and was an archaeologist for several years before my 37 years at sea in the U.S. Merchant Marine. Spent 3 years in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and participated in the Vietnam War and Desert Storm. I founded the Bayside Historical Society in Bayside, Texas and was editor of the BAYSIDER historical newsletter. Presently, like my grandfather I am a refugee from the land of my birth, the U.S.A, and reside in Belize, Central America. Due to my anachronistic patriotic democratic philosophy and outspoken opposition to the growing Leftist/Marxist political movement, I've been placed on the U.S. Domestic Terrorist List like many of my patriotic veteran brothers.

Intervale Cemetery
i was wondering if you could tell me where you got the information on the parents of this child. I am researching my husbands family tree and supposedly Charles l. Harrington and Sarah M. Fiske are his 3rd great grandparents. i am curious as to where they are buried? we have a lot of questions about his genealogy. his grandfather wrote a book on their heritage, but some of it is not accurate (on purpose) i would greatly appreciate anything you could tell me about this grave. thank you very much! raggles
