*** Apologies if I'm not responsive in a timely manner, trying to maintain focus on the job at hand and (300+) emails are collecting that I have flagged to deal with ***|
Junior genealogist - with an email address, a car and a digital camera.
Photos I take belong to the people who ask for them. You are free to do whatever you wish to with them. I ask that they not be published on pay-to-view sites.
I want to thank everyone who has stepped up and offered corrections or taken transfers for the cemeteries I've been working, it's been a rewarding experience.
I am in the process of visiting all of Danvers cemeteries and ensuring they are fully catalogued. I am only posting fresh photos when I think mine are better or show something different. If you object, drop me a line and we can chat.
Currently working Walnut Grove, running at a rate of about 450 photos a week - "Mom" has done the hard work of filing memorials. At this rate we may be done by February. Corrections most welcome.
I do take breaks and handle occasional photo requests - if you have a location, that makes it a lot more tempting. It's a challenge to walk a large cemetery looking for two headstones and then have 4 more requests for the same cemetery a week later.
I trim my messages and only leave those that I need to do something about - I'm not hating you, just trying to use the messages to advantage. (Although I think I will keep the message from Billie forever - such an inspiration)
Complete: (Using Mass Vital Records numbering)
GR1 Wadsworth - added some 400 memorials and photos.
GR2 Nurse (checked - was complete)
GR3 Endicott (checked - was complete)
GR4 Preston (tucked away behind Putnam - added a few (NEEDS TO BE RE-DONE - MISSED A LOT)
GR5 Prince (catalogued and photographed)
GR6 Putnam (catalogued and photographed)
GR7 Russell (checked - added a few missing ones)
GR8 Porters Burying Ground (High street - added a few)
GR9 Holten - fair sized
Completely photographed. ~1400 added to date.
Some of the photos are less than optimal. Let me know if you find a horrible one that should be re-taken. Holten has run out of land and money. The town is trying to figure out what to do
GR13 Hutchinson (catalogued and photographed)
GR14 (Tapley / Preston) Old Settlers - (Photographed)
GR15 Putnamville (checked - was complete)
GR16 Swin(n)erton (checked - was complete)
GR20 Buxton/Goodale (checked - was complete)
(GR7/Beverly in MVR) Leech/East Danvers (checked - was complete)
GR11 Walnut Grove - Starting with Section C - 72% photographed. I'm surprised we found that many. Section B - 74% - about to go back over it. Working Section A - 52%. done. Haven't seriously started section D, but it is 12% done.
??? St Mary Sylvan St - moderate size, but Catholic, so every headstone has 20 names.
??? Xavierian (waiting for SJP to file obits to add remaining 200+ photos) - perhaps a student project?
??? Danvers State Hospital - finally found it!
??? Anshe Sfard - there are about 10 cemeteries back in those woods
??? Annunciation - Large
Defunct - exist in records, but not on the ground.
??? Potter's field (off Adams street, empty lot behind St Mary's, but no headstones)
??? Porter Cemetery (not on FaG, off locust street, near Connors farm) - Although I have seen recent clues as to a cemetery near here - it still evades me, but then the location given for Potter's field was way off.
GR17 Pedricks Cemetery (not on FaG) (behind the high school I suppose accessible from the Rail Trail, only has one headstone which I gather has since vanished)
GR10 Putnam (off Sylvan street, bodies moved to Porter's ca. 1920)
GR12 Jacobs private burial ground, Gardner's Hill (have not found)
GR21 Pope private burial ground, Pope's Lane, Danvers Centre (have not found - it should be back by Hutchinson) - but then it's a Peabody cemetery - so it has to be down the road.

|D. Montgomery||ABIGAILL LAKIN PARKER|
Hello. Thank you for your suggestion about this memorial for Deac Samuel Parker's widow. You mention she perhaps remarried after his death. I have no family records on this. I would be happy to make needed corrections if you could send on docs or citations.
I was unaware of another memorial for same person. I will contact that contributor directly and try to sort that out. There can only be one memorial for one person of course.
As a direct descendant thru Saml Parker and Abigail Lakin Parker my interest is for complete and accurate info. So please forward on any further info. You are quite correct abt Groton burials that are documented but where headstones appear to be missing. I live a thousand miles away from Groton but have made the long trip to visit the cemetery several times. I appreciate your insight on this. Thanks again. Please keep in touch. D. Montgomery
|John Wright||Perley Breed|
Jack, thank you and to David Russell, for linking me to the grave of Perley Breed, a very fine musician who worked in Britain in the late 1920s and whose great jazz clarinet playing is still enjoyed today by record collectors.
|Teri Wheeler||Delia Albert|
Thanks for looking for Delia's headstone!
|Keeper of the Stars||Samuel Page Grave|
Hi,Jack,I wanted to thank you for trying to locate Samuel's grave. It has probably been long gone. Appreciate your effort! Susan
|Barry Gates||Berry/Wright Walnut Grove Danvers|
The photos I posted were about my 3rd or 4th try at taking a picture, for one that conveyed the utter blank-ness of the stone, also for handling the peculiarities of sun and shade, specifically right there, oddly, too.
Daniel Foster (1821-1892), over in Central Cemetery Beverly, is a stone from my own pedigree that was equally "daunting", especially when, equally, both that stones numerous inclusions, and its numerous omissions, are each considered.
I deleted the generic Berry memorial, and the generic Wright memorial too.
Continued regards... Barry
|Roland Henry Baker, III||Elizabeth "Betsy" Bartlett Pedrick Memorial# 130139093|
RE: Elizabeth "Betsy" Bartlett Pedrick Memorial# 130139093. Thanks so much for your note this morning!!! I really appreciate you trying to find her marker!!! "Mom" reports several other Pedricks on that some plot:
Section C, Lot 74 includes:
1 Elizabeth (Bartlett) Pedrick
2 Mary A. Pedrick
3 Nicholas Bartlett Pedrick
4 Sarah Lydia Pedrick
5 Hannah Elizabeth Pedrick
6 Clara D. Hills
Are any of them visible? Should I put in a request for each of them? Or just leave the request open for Betsy as a reminder?
Roland Henry Baker, III
|Bob on Gallows Hill||Berry transfers, etc.|
Turned custody of the Porter Berrys and Gen. Porter to you.
By the way, if you ever come across a connection between the Danvers Berrys and two who are buried in Salem's Howard Street ground give us a shout. I'm sure they are related, but have never found a connection.
|Bob on Gallows Hill||Moses Porter|
I've already made a bid to add him to the famous ranks, but it was rejected on the basis that he was just a local hero. They won't let me go to the well for a second try, but if you want to make an appeal in the forums, they might reconsider. That happened with my Fitz Henry Lane memorial. Meanwhile, I'll add all that great information you researched as soon as I can (coupla days). Thanks.
Thank you for the pictures! Eunice (Porter) Smith was the first wife of Philip Smith. She died August 9, 1853. Afterwards, he married 2nd wife Abigail (Pratt) Smith. Was there a marker for Eunice P Smith? Not sure who Lydia Daniel was. Is there a marker for her, too? I would appreciate pics of Eunice and Lydia's markers if they are available.
Again thank you for pics!

|bluelady||RE: Charles P Trask|
Thanks. None of those buried with him look familiar to me. I looked at the census records I had for him and saw none of those names as well. I will have to keep hunting. Looks like this is a large cemetery so maybe he still might be there.
