Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found this on another members profile and it truly expresses how I feel as well:

"The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people."

I'm searching for information for the following Families: Lavash, Lavache, Hynes, Higgins, Donohoe,Bursey, Bradbury, Brown, Demeo, Hayes, Sawin. I've been researching my roots for over 20 years and have now started to record cemeteries for others.

I've also started adding any Irish and Canadians that I come across, in tribute to my ancesters, military graves & any children that I find - they seem to be the hardest to find & I'm recording them as I find them.

This is an abbreviated list of cemeteries that I have visited so far - I've visited some of these because I have family members there -

Belmont Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Calvary Cemetery & Maus. - Waltham, MA
Cambridge Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Common Street Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Cudworth Cemetery - Scituate, MA
Evergreen Cemetery - Marboro, Ma
Evergreen Cemetery - Leominster, MA
Grove Hill Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Highland Meadow Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Holy Cross Cemetery & Maus. - Malden, MA
Mt. Auburn Cemetery - Watertown/Cambridge, MA
Mt. Feake Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - Arlington, MA
Westview Cemetery, Bedford, MA
North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Olde Burying Place - Arlington, MA
Old Burying Ground, AKA Ye Olde Burying Ground in Lexington, MA
Old Burying Place - Watertown, MA
Puritan Lawn Cemetery - Peabody, Ma
Ridgelawn Cemetery - Watertown, MA
St. Pauls Cemetery - Arlington, MA
St. Patricks Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Woodlawn Cemetery & Crem. - Everett, MA
and a few others.
I normally photograph the whole family plot if it's more than a single grave & will post those as well.

Thank you to Linda Shepard Salzer for all her pics, corrections and updates for all the memorials that I set up for North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - I greatly appreciate it :)

Thanks as always Sharon. Hope you didn't get too much snow in that last storm. You're a gem.

Jane Gray
Thanks for the note about the duplicate. I deleted my record but it took me a long time to find the other record because the person has listed her last name as "Lathrop Gray". The name on her death certificate is Jane L. Gray so I asked him if he would consider removing Lathrop from her last name.

Sharon, Good idea. I like taking alot of photos in a cemetery & post to sites already created. The Hittinger family sites look great thanks to your beautiful work. Hope you miss the snow storm. Richard

Harriet D. McLeod ~ Mt. Auburn
Hi! I did some further research on where Harriet's grave is in Mt. Auburn, and have actually found her on the Mt. Auburn map of graves and also - couldn't believe it- the Picturesque Pocket Companion and Visitor's Guide Through Mount Auburn, they actually had an illustration of what her monument looked like! So I have posted all the info on her memorial and if you happen to go back there, to the area of Willow Ave near Poplar, and could take a look that would be awesome because it should be much easier now. (If you can't though, that's okay too).

RE: Nancy Shea Stratton
Hi, when I go out graving, I usually spend a couple of hours going up and down the rows photographing, so if there were another stone for him I probably would have found it. If he was in the military, sometimes the bronze markers can be a row or two away. I'll try to let you know if I find it.
