Bio and Links
Bio Photo My sister and I have been photographing all the markers in Oak Grove Cemetery in Pawtucket, RI. I am not related to the majority of them, so feel free to request a transfer if you have a relationship to any that I am managing.

I also give permission for anyone to use the photographs I am posting on If you want uncropped then email me with surname & date of photo.

I would like to extend my gratitude to the Oak Grove Civil War Cemetery Restoration (Facebook group) for their hard work on uncovering and repairing the grave markers at Oak Grove.

RE: Elizabeth (Miller) Bacon Hutchinson Cole
I wish I could say it was definite, but I think it might be as close as we can get? Isn't that an interesting piece of historical info on the Bacons? I had never seen it before in connection with the Slaters.

RE: Grace Pemberton #129323192

I have no problem with you using the obituary or some excerpts from it. It would be nice to add some info about her.

Take care,

RE: info requested
I wish I could do that . . . I am crippled with RA and I am a shut-in. I wish it were different, but alas . . .

info requested
Is there any way for me to find out if this Grace Pemberton was the very special, classy woman and gentle friend who worked at Brown University in the early 70's?

I know this is a long shot but I had to ask.

RE: Charles Stebbins marker photo
You are very welcome! I tried to remove the military marker (temporarily) so you can read the stone but it was too embedded in the earth. It says Conn. Inf behind it in case you couldn't read it.

RE: Another John Nickerson
Interesting, huh? I requested the photo again after your first one was rejected and there it is!

RE: Another John Nickerson
Interesting, since they had a plot number? Well, at least we know who all 3 John Nickerson Civil War soldiers are now :-)

RE: Another John Nickerson
Considering that the cemetery was originally set up to inter soldiers' remains, mostly those from Union Hospitals, I am not as skeptical as you on this memorial? I think whoever added the memorial had done their best to ID the soldier, and simply made an error in the regiment.

RE: Another John Nickerson
Thank you, yes, I had that information. I believe this is where the person at the Beaufort cemetery made their error in the regiment for the John Nickerson who actually died at Beaufort.

RE: Another John Nickerson
Two are listed in the roster. The one buried in Beaufort was Co E 5th RIHA**. I've asked that they remove the parental info from that one.

Did this John died at Beaufort also?

Beaufort Cemetery has the wrong Regiment. Perhaps you can send the passage from Rev. Dennison's book. Dennison also wrote Sabres and Spurs and has an accurate accounting of my GG-Grandfather's RI 1st cavalry regiment in that book.
