Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt.

I don't do estimated birth years. The relatives of the dearly departed not only could get the date of death wrong on the monument but the age at death. Too many people take anything they find on the Internet as gospel, and I will not contribute to that bad habit.

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship. I will not transfer out of guidelines. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. Use the edit system. Too many people have requested out-of-guidelines transfers and then never added so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.

I WILL NOT link to a "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.

If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.

My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.

Sources for additional memorial information include:
Suggest A Correction, NEHGS,,, NARA, other on-line sources, personal library, obituaries, newspaper items, etc.

Presenter of Betty Allen Chapter DAR and Friends of Lilly Library sponsored "Celestial Residents Walking Tours": Bridge Street Cemetery (Northampton), Park Street Cemetery (Florence), Spring Grove Cemetery (Florence), West Farms Cemetery (Florence) and a virtual tour of "The Celestial Residents of Chesterfield".

Wow thanks, I had no idea John used my picture yet. We had talked about it but I never knew it went to "print". Thanks much for letting me know!

Winfred B. Scott - Worthington
I agree, Ransom & Ellen likely listed all of their children (4 in total, 3 living, 1 deceased, per 1900 Census) Frank, Effie & Mary E. were alive in 1900, Winfred was deceased.

Alice Bissell 1892-1996
Not sure if you posted the info, but noticed an error on Alice's father. Her father was Adnah Bissell, not Franklin William Bissell. Her mother Florence Scott later married Adnah's brother Franklin William Bissell after Adnah's death.
Can you make the change?
Thank you.

RE: Col Oliver Edwards Bio
You're welcome. I did make an error you might want to correct. He was an 1894 graduate of West Point, not 1896.

Places of death
Please don't send us information from the SS Index as places of death. It only lists the last known address. Thank you

Jessie Lemon - Pine Hill, Westfield
Hey there, it appears I misread the year of death listed on her gravestone (1862 as opposed to the correct 1882) which I have now fixed. The month and day (and correct year - 1882) do match VR (18 Apr. 1882, aged 26 years). Looking at your edit to change her date of death to 8 Oct. 1893 I am a little confused. Could you have a look and let me know? Thanks! Jim
