Do It Now
I expect to pass through this world
but once.
Any good thing, therefore, that I can do
or any kindness that I can show
to any fellow human being
let me do it now.
Let me not defer nor neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again.
Stephen Grellet (17731855)

My motivation is to provide historical records to others. "Pay it forward." If what I've posted helps you in your genealogy or provides you some comfort because you can visit a grave from near or far, then my mission is accomplished and I urge you to help others in some way.

I don't mind if you use my pics for your personal use or even on your genealogy website but say where it came from!! If you save a photo to your computer from findagrave.com, reference findagrave.com and the memorial number, let others know about this website! Without the reference, I consider the image stolen.

If you have any add'l info or corrections on any of the memorials I have posted please use the "EDIT" tab on the memorial to send me a "correction or suggestion."

I am most willing - and passionate - to make the memorials as detailed as possible. I use online and/or hard copy vital records and census records, along with family genealogies and other biographies, data, and newspaper articles to make the memorials I post as complete as possible - this research takes time so if you come across one of my memorials that lacks details and you have some, please help me out and send the details along to me via the EDIT tab.

Upon my death I authorize any of my memorials to be transferred to any FAG contributor as they are requested.
[thanks to FAG Cathy Clark for this statement on her contributor page as this is my desire and agreement wholeheartedly - perfect and appropriate]

Walter H. Rozell, Hill Top Cemetery, Plainfield, MA
Dear Anonymous,

First of all, thank you so much for this memorial.

This further information will help. The way the gravesite is arranged is a bit unusual, so it can be difficult to interpret.

Walter H. (Henry) Rozell married Gunhild (Wilhelmina) Nicholson (Memorial# 73338724).

The headstone you see for him (Memorial #73338740) has only his forename, "Walter H., Husband of Gunhild".

Close by there is (or was) a stone bench, which was carved with his surname, Rozell, which was thus the family surname for both husband and wife. She wanted the bench to be part of their gravesite because her own parents (Carl Magnus Nicholson and Olga Nykvist Nicholson) had had such a bench on their grave in Valhalla, NY.

So the way Gunhild N. Rozell and Walter H. Rozell had designed the gravesite in Plainfield was to have the bench carry the surname, and the small headstones carry each of their forenames, with hers accompanied by her maiden name.

Again, thank you so much for giving them this online memorial.

Sandra Willis 1944 - 2003

Do you have any more information about her other than birth date and death date?

Hard to be sure it is the same Sandra Willis.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper

Hi! I've been able to confirm that the tentative links you have on this memorial are, indeed, correct. I dug up a Maine death record that confirms that the Duane Duncan buried in Pittsfield, ME (and his wife Louisa, sic 'Louse') are the same people as Wesley's parents. I've submitted a suggested edit to you to amend Wesley's memorial.

I've also submitted more detailed info to supplement and correct Duane and Louisa's memorials, but as the contributor is inactive, not sure how that will work. (Any guidance appreciated on how to submit directly to Find A Grave or 'adopt' those two listings.)

Well done on tracking down that possible connection! I wasn't having any luck with Duane until I started looking into his son, Wesley, and found your hints. Thanks!

RE: Mercy Warren d. 1874 memorial 109786539
Thanks for getting back to me. Sometimes the headstone is so deteriorated that the numbers are deceptive...especially when viewed as a photo online.

This family line is key for our research. Both my mother and father's family cross here (Perkins). We wonder where Mercy rests.

RE: I can't find
Thanks, I found the page in the book but there is no mention of the names of those disinterred. How did you find these people? I ask because I am wondering if the 2 wives of Ebenezer Pratt, Sarah/Sally and Lydia (both maiden names Aldrich or Aldredg) might have been buried there. I have been searching for them for years!

I can't find
The book you mentioned that is on Googlebooks. Could you send me a link please? I've been pretty excited about these finds and keep forgetting to ask.
