Francis Bowles Followup
We walked straight to the stone, thanks to your directions (once we found the entrance to the cemetery through the church parking lot, that is). Unfortunately the stone was covered in sticky debris from the budding trees and we had nothing to clean it, so will have to return to take the photo we want, but any excuse to make a trip to the Cape!
Thanks again,

Yup- were in wrong cemetery
Hi Caryn,

You were right about Joshua and Olive Robbins being in the wrong cemetery in Harwich. I'd walked from one cem. to the other. All fixed!

Bowles' stones in Cobb's Hill Cemetery.

Thanks SO much for the directions to the Bowles' memorials. We plan to pay our respects this weekend. We are coming to a symposium and will be close by.

Bourne family
Thank you for the bio on Richard Bourne and for the photos of markers in the old cemetery in Sandwich that include those of my ancestors. I am a descendant of Richard Bourne and find it most interesting two people with similar interests share the same uncommon name!

Lucy Emma Harris #158813248
I sell identified antique photos in my eBay store. I'm currently researching the subjects in an 1860s photo album that belonged to descendants of Ella Lothrop and Everett Harris. I always look for a memorial at and found one for John Clinton Harris. Lucy Emma Harris is on the same stone, and I found an 1889 Massachusetts marriage record for J Clinton Harris and L. Emmma Houghton. Then found a 1910 Census record for J Clinton Harris, with wife Lena and daughters Ursel and Carmen. Since you declined my edit to connect J Clinton and Lucy Emma as husband and wife, I guess 'Lena' wasn't incorrect in the census record, as I assumed. Can you please explain the relationships? I want to get it right in my description :)

RE: Sarah Snow Waterman, Mem #20902262

Thank you so much for your willingness to share your photos with me. As I said before, they really are lovely. You have a great talent, and now that I know your relationship with her, I'm sure they were taken with love as well. That always makes for a good pic, too.

I used the one of her headstone as the profile picture, and it looks very nice. The other picture of it just was not appropriate for that purpose, but yours absolutely is, and I'm definitely happy with it.

RE: Edits
Sorry, the two same names in the same family got me going in circles, I think. Thanks.

Hello, Caryn,

First, I want to thank you for the beautiful photos you took of Sarah's headstone. She was my 1st cousin, 10x removed! I'm sure you are familiar with her, because she is the granddaughter of Richard Warren, the Mayflower passenger, and I saw in your profile that you are also descended from him. I guess that makes us cousins of some degree!

I am also writing to ask for your permission to use your photos in my family tree. Of course, I would give you credit for them. I would love for my family to see them.

Thanks for your consideration,

Thank you Caryn! I appreciate you adding the biography with references that I submitted for Elizabeth Tappan-Ruggles. Thank you for posting the beautiful headstone photos for the family as well. Your work is invaluable and greatly appreciated.
