Bio and Links
Bio Photo I usually add data from the person's obituary, if available, as that is the information the person's family selected to be publicly displayed as the person's memorial and image. Next the federal and state census records may provide the only remaining conveniently accessible source data on non famous persons and thus I try to add when possible, after all, not all persons were, as Rudyard Kipling put it, 'Captains and Kings'. Plus in the future if a descendant wishes to research further, the pure factual data currently available is here for them to use as a starting point. All my photos may be used as wanted as I took them to share; source credit would be appreciated. Please feel free to add your photos if you have a picture of the person or if you have a picture of the monument taken at a different time of day that shows it more clearly. Please advise any additions or corrections with the 'edit tab'. Your research is welcome ! I will transfer any memorials of your relatives if requested except my family tree.

Incidentally, I'm a trustee of Black Point Cemetery in Scarborough, Maine.

thought you would like to know the research i did on the USS Haggard Phinneys ship it was not sunk but hit by suicide planes. see below.

USS Haggard
On 29 April 1945 while ship was in company with Task Force 58 and proceeding to support of another destroyer on picket station, the vessel was attacked by two enemy planes identified as Zeke 52's in suicide attack. One plane struck the ship at the waterline amidships. The other missed ahead a few feet and exploded. 13 killed and 38 wounded. Damage to ship: major material damage, great difficulty in temporary repairs. At Navy Yard for further investigation and disposition of vessel.

Infant Son of Cash
You posted the gravestone photo at Browns Hill Cemetery for the following Find A Grave memorial for Infant Son Cash:

Browns Hill Cemetery
South Portland
Cumberland County
Maine, USA
Plot: WPA map: Sec 2, Lot 18
Created by: ProgBase
Record added: Aug 17, 2010
Find A Grave Memorial# 57211092

I know which Cash family is buried in this plot but cannot identify the baby. Any chance you could take another picture with the grass cut down in front of the stone so I am able to read the initials of the parents?

I appreciate your help. Thank you.

Robert, thank you so much for providing the photo for her memorial page. I really appreciate this. I'm curious if since the name of the cemetery was incorrect, maybe the plot number was as well?
