Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur photographer volunteering for the "Find A Grave" site.

My focus is mostly in the Cheshire / Hillsborough counties in New Hampshire but when I had the chance I have taken pics in other counties of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine and Canada.

I really enjoy the search for requests.

I also enjoy just taking pics of non-requests. With my wife we have visited many cemeteries and have created many memorials.

I will transfer memorials only to relatives but I do ask that if you use my pics, please credit "Find A Grave".

My hope is to help connect families one stone at a time.

A Helper.

RE: Jennie Davis
OK, now I GET IT! Thanks for taking the time to explain...I always look at the back side of a GS; don't know why I didn't think of that!

Jennie Davis
I have moved Jennie to Woodside; it appears I put her in Laurel Hill with her parents by mistake. Her death certificate says she is buried "Westminster". Thanks for catching the error! Linda

Thank you for your photo efforts on my behalf. I really appreciate the time and effort that you spent to support my request. Your photos confirmed the burial location of this couple.

RE: Loretta Francis Young Paradise
I found that Loretta and David Paradise were on at least their second marriage when they wed in 1985. I've not been able to locate David, his first wife, or their daughter, Susan (another 2x cousin of mine). I've not chased down Loretta's previous marriage to Kersh, or found any records of those two little ones yet. I'll do some more looking.

Thank you again.

RE: Loretta Francis Young Paradise
Thank you for the other pics. It is Loretta's husband, David Paradise who is my second cousin. I'm sorting out that side of the family, which is, as many are, "long lost." My aunt has memories of visiting with David and his mother when they were little, which was in the 1930s.

Anyway, the "Kersh" name I don't know, and I have no information yet that Loretta was married to someone other than David Paradise. I will do some digging and if I come up with anything, I will share.

Thank you very much for all of this work.


I took other pics but there was some confusion.

On the back of the YOUNG stone there is a William T. Kersh (1967-1967) and then I found a footstone for Thomas W. Kersh (1966-1966).

Since the footstone says "infant son of Loretta" I can assume that the second KERSH infant is also the son of Loretta.

Is there a chance that the infant sons are one in the same but the death years are posted different by accident?

Please let me know if you find out.
