Lemuel Smith
I don't know if you have the wrong Lemuel Smith or not but you definitely have the wrong story about my Lemuel Smith!!!

Lemuel Smith that was captured in NY and put into the sugar house and released in Oct 1783 barefoot and in rags walked home to Stoughton, Ma. I have this history.
He was SON or Asahel Smith b 1734 in Dedham, Ma. and Sarah Badlam in 1755.
Lemuel was born March 13, 1768 and died at the age of 78 in 1846. They never expected for him to live as long as he did. He is buried in the Old cemetery Stoughton/Canton line at Cobb's corner. He married Martha (Patty) Withington in 1790 in Stoughton, Ma she d/o Of John Withington and Desire Liscomb, Patty born 1771.

I have my Husbands Smiths back to Richard Smyth Smith b abt 1460 s/o William. Richard b in Wiltshire, England and d 27 Mar 1527 married Alice unk
I have records from England.
Robert Smith m Susannah Porte d/o Thomas Porte she was born 10 Sep 1610 Norwich, England
I have the English record on her birth, and marriage. She was hit by lightening in NH in 1680 Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire

Nathaniel Henry Crafts, Memorial #114188279
Dear David Lambert -
I have long been interested in the lives of waterworks engineers and was pleased to see you had located the grave of Nathaniel Henry Crafts, one of Boston's most prominent water works engineers.

If you have no personal interest in Crafts, would you be willing to transfer him to me?

Do I have your permission to download the headstone photograph for Joseph and Frances Hymoff. Proper credit will be given, of course.

Most of my maternal relatives are buried in one section or another of the Pride of Brockton Cemetery. Do you know if there is a list available which details the names of those interred in the cemetery? I live in Houston.

Last, do you want me to request permission to download your photographs each and every time I find one that would be appropriate for my family tree on

I was wondering if you could let me know where the photo of Ben Crabtree either comes form or resides? I am a Crabtree relative from Maine (he was born on North Haven). Many thanks,

Thank you so much for the photographic survey of Evergreen Cemetery. I found a grave you photographed listed on Ancestry and lo-and-behold your work will link to the work I've been doing for the past three years. I'll pay it forward by contributing some more photography in Boston.

Wales Frrench--Stoughton Mass-blank dup
Hi! I'm in the middle of cleaning up the Braintree-area Frenches in my hubbie's Puritan tree, tough as the Elm Street Cemetery in Braintree was used as pasture in its early years so over half of the markers are missing (cow kicks and hog rootings toppled/broker many). Elm Street's were never replaced as done by a benefactor at the Quincy Cem. in the 1820s..

I and am currently doing the multiple Wales Frenches. You have two at Evergreen Cemetery. To see both:
Two Graves, one dated b.1847

I'm thinking you might want to delete the undated one? If that grave is a separate person, do you have a suffix, jr. or a sr,, or middle name or initial or nickname to make them distinct and seachable?

Thanks in advance. Julia
