|Bio and Links|
I retired in April 2005. I started doing genealogy in August 2005. It all started with my wife, Dianne,(Dianne E. Smith) and her interest. I've enjoy traveling to many cemeteries. Dianne would say, "My best friends were all cold". She passed away, November 12, 2007.|
I have since married Bonnie (Snow) Johnson in 2009. I told her I would do my best NOT to let grass grow under her feet. Together, we enjoy "grave searching" for others as we can.
If you would like to use any photos I may have posted, all we ask if you give credit to us something like, "Photo courtesy of FindAGrave.com member #47060899".

Find A Grave Memorial# 57622966
lists death as 11 July 1826
Is there any way you might find an age at death or a year of birth for him? Or a photo of the stone.
Numerous people think he is the same man who lived in Portland Maine but that is 190 or so miles away from this burial.
He maybe my ancestor or those other people who...
Thank You John, appreciate your time and efforts for FindaGrave. Beryl Meehan

My pleasure, let me know if I can be of any further assistance. I'm regularly in the town offices, libraries and cemeteries of the midcoast area!

Hi John my name is Jessica i live in Unity Maine, I saw you were looking for Fredrick Burrill 1816. I did not find his stone in the Pond cemetery. But the other day i was in the Webster cemetery and found a Betsy Burrill Wife of Benjamin Burrill Borne abt 1813 Died 1888.I dont know if thats of any interest to you but i figured id pass it along.I have only been through 1/2 of webster Cem. so i might find some more Burrill's ?

|Northern Clough||Hosea Smith|
I see you listed Hosea Smith in the Butterfield Cemetery in Prentiss ,Maine . I have been photographing the cemetery and have not run across him I guess my question to you is did you actual see the stone? and could you point me in some direction as to what part he is in? Trying hard to find it but to no avail.
Thank you, John and Bonnie, for the transfer. I'm going to start working on Robert's profile this afternoon.
By the way, I cannot count the times I have used Diane's quote, "Some of my best friends are cold." Too, too funny. Her memory lives on.

Do you know John's nephew, Raymond Volz? If so, are you in touch with him?
