Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live on the North Shore of Massachusetts in Essex County. I have published 6 books and 1 pamphlet on area graveyards and was awarded the Massachusetts State Historic Preservation Award [2013] by the Daughter's of the American Revolution [DAR]. I have several old graveyard tours that I perform in my area and I do lecturing in my area on a variety of historical subjects at Historical Societies.

Simeon Fuller # 92379143
Died: 1806
Oakdale Cemetery
Middleton, Mass.

"Farewell my wife and children dear,
Why stand you gazing round my bed;
You all must die as will I,
And ly among the silent dead."

.

Amos Perkins, shoemaker # 89221154
Died: 1894
Boston Street Cemetery
Topsfield, Mass.

"Rest aged saint, thy pilgrim staff lay down,
Now take the palm branch and the blood bought crown."

.

Rebecca (Mitchell) Blodget # 69165355
Died: 1839
Brookside Cemetery
West Boxford, Mass.

"Dear as thou wert, and justly dear,
We will not weep for thee;
One thought shall check the starting tears,
It is that thou are free.
And thus shall faith's consoleing power,
Our tears of love restrain;
Oh who that saw thy parting hour,
Could wish thee here again."

.

Capt William Harris # 84840597
Died: 1797
Old Hill Burying Ground
Newburyport, Mass.

"Alas grim death has shot thy fatal dart,
Which long seem'd pointed at their languid heart;
No more their voice a careless world can move.
They tell the wonders of redeeming love."

.

Mark Haskell # 82578476
Died: 1783
Old Burying Ground
Ipswich, Mass.

"This world's a shadow; Life a span
Toil, pain & death, the lot of man:
But grace substantial good supplies,
Hope here & endless bliss above the skies"
