Bio and Links
My hobby is creating family trees based on gravestones I photograph in some of the more historic cemeteries near where I live. I have a public tree posted on which contains random Norfolk County, Mass families. I flesh out the information using MA vital records, info, findagrave info, and whatever else I can find. I encourage anyone who is interested in visiting that site to offer additions and/or corrections and to use the information and photos as clues in their own research. I only ask that you also share the information with anyone else who is interested.

I am also involved in a project to document the older Wrentham Mass cemeteries, along with two other Wrentham ladies as "WrenthamRoots" on FAG.

RE: Nona Estella Arledge #143274372
Thank you Martha for your efforts. You at least made me aware of the other daughters. I had tried to find more also, but no luck. Thank you. Gennie

You requested a photo of Pemberton in Lutz, FL I walked the cemetery without luck and I see someone else had a list of the people buried there with no Pembertons. Do you have any other info on dates.. or why you think Pemberton is there. I can contact the funeral home Blount if I have more info.

Nona Estella Arledge #143274372
Hello Martha, I received your message stating that Nona Estella Arledge had two sisters. Do you have any further information on this family? I found a couple census records, do you have other sources? Thank you for passing along the new information. Sincerely, Gennie

Hi, I see you posted the photo for this memorial. Is it possible to get an exact transcription of the headstone? The picture is not clear enough to make out all the text. Does the headstone indicates the Fales family name? Thank you for your assistance. Regards

Thank you very much for the transfer of the Ponds. I have actually been able to find quite a few of the family add it is always a big pleasure to add another member to the fold.

Ms. DiChiara, thank you for responding to my request. While we have no pictures of many of our ancestors, the cemetery headstones help to remind us that they did live. Again, thanks. Mary Beth Isacks

Hi Martha,

I just found her birth record in Fall River, MA: born 10 Feb. 1875 to Daniel & Harriet Ratcliffe. Daniel and Harriet were born in England.

Sorry but we had no luck at the County Line cemetery in Hillsborough county, FL. Most of the tomb stones were very old and illegible. We couldn't find a contact person either.
