Hi everyone! |
I love genealogy and believe that many good things can come from visiting local cemeteries and by cleaning them up. The idea of losing some of these smaller sites in Maine and New Hampshire due to vegetation and vandalism worries me. I'm willing to help search for a cemetery if you have a general location!
My family (Eastman, Tyler, Richard, Ellingwood) was based in Oxford county Maine for quite some time but I can't find many of their stones. My plan is to transcribe as many places as I can and hopefully stumble upon some of my "lost" family members.
Our deepest family mystery is what ever happened to Leslie Eastman (1874-1902)? The 1900 census had him in Dixfield and his death certificate has him dying of pneumonia in Rumford but there is no burial location.
I love to help where I can so feel free to hit me up!

Thank you for the transfers. Barb

10-4, thanks. Yes, my eyes are blurry now from too much computer time :)
|Jim Osborne||Hannah Palmer|
I believe the death year on the gravestone for Hannah Palmer is actually 1847 and not 1817 as is listed on the memorial page.
|Dr. John||Hi cousin|
I ran across one of your memorials this evening and then looked at a few of the Eastman's in your virtual cemetery. I noticed that Ebenezer Eastman (1749-1820) is my 3rd cousin, 5x removed. From which branch of Roger's tree are you a descendant? I am down the Samuel (1657-1725), Ebenezer (1701-1746) line.

The Newcomb memorials are now updated and linked.
Thank you for the smooth and rapid transaction.

That would be great! Thanks.
I am sorry, but I can't even remember which memorials I shared for corrections. Sorry about that. I send out too many at times.

Sorry about all the rain. The Sterling grave markers I think are near the center of the cemetery near the flag poll. That is another reason I left the photos that I took so you would have an idea of what you are looking for.
If you have a map of Peaks Island, four of the five cemeteries are shown on the map: Pond Grove, Ye Ole Trott Burial Grounds (near Pond Grove), Brackett (near Brackett Point), and Trefethen (not far from the Trefethen Evergreen Improvement Association Building)on Wild Rose...kind of difficult to find off Oaklawn Rd. The Plante Cemetery is the smallest and the most difficult to find. It is off the road near the Peaks Island Transfer & Recycling station. There are no signs. I rode my bike by the dirt road several times before I finally went down the dirt road. There was a large pile of gravel by the road if that helps. Good luck! I am glad to see there is someone else interested in Peaks Island Cemeteries.
|Robert Hague||RE: Pond Grove- Peaks Island|
The photos that I took of the grave markers of James and Maria Sterling show my reflection when I took the photos. I would hope that you are someone will take new photos without the reflection. I will remove my photos onece the new photos are taken.
We were on Peaks Island this past June for our second visit. I made it a point to visit all five of the cemeteries on the island and took photos of all the grave markers. I now have them all posted; however, I am still adding a bit more information on some of the memorials.
We just love Peaks Island.

Jennifer, I had posted the info on my request that records show only two graves in case someone looked for a larger plot and it would be only two. That's why you thought you'd find only two graves. I'm glad you have posted others from this cemetery as it was hard for me to locate in the York Co. list of cemeteries. Maybe now they will update their information.
Here's what was posted to the Cemetery page:
On Bagley Road, 2/3 miles from Clarks Bridge Road on west side.

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Only two Tingley graves in this burial plot which is 50'X84' surrounded by stone wall/steps, according to the York Co. Cemetery descriptions and lists. [Edit Description]
