Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired a few years ago and started working on my family tree which ultimately led me to the Find A Grave website. The information that was available helped me tremendously in getting started on that family tree and I decided to try and help others the same way. I am an engineer by profession and therefore always looking to be efficient. I decided that accomplishing one photo request at a time was too inefficient for my warped brain so I decided to attack one cemetery at a time. I completed Pocasset Cemetery in Cranston RI last year (about 10,000 photos)and am now working on Moshassuck Cemetery in Central Falls RI and that should be complete by spring. I then provide the cemetery management staff with a complete spreadsheet of all the headstone data as well as posting all of it on the web site.

I am happy to transfer memorials to family members. All photos that I post are available for non-profit use. The photos posted to the Find A Grave web site are cropped and resized so if you want the original high resolution picture please let me know and I will send it to you.

Hi William, I am working furiously on my family tree, unfortunately I'm pretty much on my own, because there is not a lot of people left in the family with good memories. These are my great, great grandparents. I spent an afternoon looking for this stone to see if it could lead me to anyone else, but I must have missed it. Can you tell me where this is?

You know, if you have a picture of that marker I can still use that. It's better than nothing if you know what I mean. And at least it shows where he is.

RE: Henry W. Smith Moshassuck Cemetery
Thanks William. I really appreciate it. Makes sense as I know the family didn't have a lot of money then.

RE: Mulligan Family at Moshassuck
The stone with "Mulligan" seems to be the only one. Thanks for looking though. Cheryl

I was told that you photographed the cemetery and was wondering if you have a picture of my uncle's marker?

Looks to me like there's a marker according to this link.
