Hi Ben my name is Bonnie and I'm writing to ask if I may use the Photo's of Edward L Linscott Memorial# 118631594
Laura Etta Linscott Memorial# 118631622 on my family tree (ancestry)? I will be sure to credit you for the Photo's as well as credit for Findagrave and the creator of the Memorial. Would like add that I checked out your other Photo's, you have a very good eye wish I was that talented. I also checked out your Photo request and found one in NC. but it already has a Photo, guess they forgot to let you know (Richard Hilburn Memorial# 72995866) Thank You Bonnie :)

George Stuart grave pictures.
Thank you so much for getting the pictures of George F. Stuart's headstone. He is my great great grand uncle from New Brunswick, Canada. He fought in the civil war and settled in Freeport until his failing health brought him to Portland to live with his son Albert, who was a doctor.

Flint & DiMatteo Headstones.
Thanks so very much for the photos that you took and put on their memorials. Really appreciate it. Good to be able to see where they are buried when you live a long distance away. MagVee #47223009

Thank You
Thank you for posting the photos of Annie B Bacon's and her parents' gravestone. on the Find-A-Grave record # 117029911. It is not the person I was looking for, but thanks anyway. I see you have requested the birthdate be changed from blank to 1867. Keep up the good work! Thanks again, and I will keep looking my Annie Bacon. BVB

RE: Re: Sarah J Cressey
Hi Ben,

It was just by chance that I happened on the tombstone. I was walking around the different sections with my list of names and I happened on it.

I have found numerous headstones, including relatives, just from walking around.

I probably use the same lists from GHS that you have, and my cemetery layouts are vintage 1930 provided by the WPA. Some things have changed but the layout is pretty much the same.

Best regards

RE: Consort?
I stand corrected; it was a note attached to the photo request for Elizabeth Harding (#103496296) in the Harding (Simon) Cemetery in Baldwin.

Hi, Ben,

I saw your "problem" message on a FG photo request, noting that a woman was the CONSORT of a gentleman, and NOT his wife. I always thought that consort was an early term for wife and used interchangeably. What, then, IS a consort, if not a spouse?

Dear Ben,
I'm really moved to look at the picture of Thomas' grave. I've hoped to for so long. Thomas was a Tanner and lived his entire life Tanning on Green St. at Deering's Bridge.
Thanks so very much
