|Bio and Links|
Please DO NOT send a request for me to link a memorial to yours if your memorial is "burial unknown". |
I have been doing gene research for about ten years and have an extensive tree on Ancestry.com. My kin come mainly from the Northeast, Canada, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I am a Maker, a Parker, a Harvey, a Heath and a Kemp. I have extensive roots in Cutler, ME and Merrimack, NH.
I love wandering old places and especially graveyards. One's name may never been written previously or since, one's life never recorded other than the engraving on the stone.
"To gather up the records of the past and present, and faithfully transmit them to the future, is a duty which one generation owes to another." - The Rev Ira C Tyson, Bedford, NH 1885
Many of the memorials I have created are for family members, but once I get to a graveyard I photograph many stones and add them here as well. I am thorough and link memorials when the data is on the stone or if I have uncovered it in my personal research. I do not see these memorials as my property and will gladly transfer non-relatives to anyone with more info, a relationship, or more care. I will gladly and quickly make changes/additions/link relations upon request also.
Please feel free to use my pics without request as you wish. I took them for you! My camera takes awesome pics that I need to shrink in order to upload them to findagrave; if you would like a copy of the better pic emailed to you please ask - it really tickles me to find a pic someone has been looking for.
Many other contributors are playing a numbers game and I think they have lost sight of the purpose: documentation. If you are too busy to make requested changes in order to properly document one's LIFE, if you enter the bare minimum of info when more data is readily available, if it is all about entering one more name, please be gracious when one asks for a transferal of the memorial. Nobody is going to list how many memorials you created on YOUR memorial! 100 thorough, family-linked memorials are better than 126,000 half-assed name listings with death date years - but only in my opinion.
Some folks on FAG are re-creating their family tree here which is JUST SUPER if they know where they are all buried. The problem is that they often add memorials without burial information in order to be able to link other memorials together. I take photos to document a grave, and I search the same cemetery on FAG for the name before creating a new memorial. I do NOT search all of FAG because I know darn well where they are buried - so If I duplicate a memorial that one of you idiots list as "no cemetery" then forgive me for not considering my memorial a duplicate.
That being said, there are many contributors here that truly care that these memorials matter. They spend hours in graveyards and on their computers to ensure that these folks are not forgotten. In their profiles there is no mention of the website rules. All they ask is that we care. I do.

Thanks for the heads-up on the duplicate. I was gathering data and images for a number of the Drake family and didn't notice that there was an earlier listing. Got it taken care of... keep up the good work.

Amy, Thank you for the transfer. I'm still finding our Civil War Lebanon boys, one-at-a-time.

Just wanted to explain the decline of the parents of Quincy Parker.
You have Malinda Parker Hartwell as his mother. Her dob is 1791, and the dob of Quincy is 1800.
I have found through some research that Nathan Parker was married three times.
1st marriage was to a Jemima Burbank in 1797 in NH
2nd marriage was to Elizabeth Brewer on 2/23/1814 in Lyndon, Vt
3rd marriage to Malinda
My guess is that Jemima is the mother of Quincy, however, I have no idea where she is buried.

Hi Amy - Thanks very much for your research. Very helpful in tracking down my Eastman line.
I noticed the link you made between Azubah Robinson Eastman (m. William Eastman) and Azubah Garnsey d. Sept 20, 1852.
Am curious how you made this link with William and believe it may be a different Azubah (Zuba).
It appears to me that Zuba is still with William in the 1860 Census.
Thanks & regards,

Thank you for all of your great work. It is very much appreciated.
Could you please tell me in which town the above cemetery is located?

If you find yourself planning another Sunny Side visit in the spring, give me a holler. Would love to meet.

I will just delete mine and add the headstone photos to yours.
|Valerie Neal||RE: John Brennan Zyla|
He does have a headstone. I miss spoke. Do you know how to merge a memorial?
