Bio and Links
Bio Photo I primarily cover cemeteries in Hampshire and Franklin Counties, though I have also done extensive work in and around Boston.

My focus is on pre-1800 stones, Revolutionary War veterans and Civil War veterans. I also snap any Dickinsons I come across, since those Dickinsons seem to be really into this.

MY PHOTOGRAPHS MAY NOT BE RE-POSTED OR REPRODUCED ON THIS SITE, ANY OTHER WEBSITE, OR IN ANY OTHER FORM OF MEDIA WITHOUT MY EXPRESS WRITTEN PERMISSION!

PER FIND A GRAVE'S POLICY, PLEASE NOTE THAT "TRANSFER REQUESTS SHOULD BE FOR DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS, THIS WOULD BE YOUR SIBLINGS, PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS AND GREAT-GRANDPARENTS."

I don't mind being contacted with a specific question about one individual, but please don't contact me with open-ended questions about an entire family line. I receive an average of two such emails per week, and since I have a busy work life, I simply do not have the time to type out entire branches of my family tree over and over. Please refer to rootsweb.com and/or ancestry.com which is where I got most if not all of the information. I HAVE NOT POSTED AND WILL NEVER POST MY OWN FAMILY'S PERSONAL TREE ON THE INTERNET, SO THERE IS NO MAGIC LINK TO A MASTER FAMILY TREE THAT I CAN PROVIDE.

I am requesting your permission to attach this gentleman's tombstone picture to my husband's family tree. Thank you for taking and posting it.

Thank you so much for the reminder! Seeing they are my ancestors I would have added the links long ago. Also, thank you for all you do on this site. Your work is outstanding.

Red stones
Moo, did you know that the red stones which have deteriorated so badly are from Mt. Sugarloaf? It was as far as the settlers could safely travel at the time, so they are some of the oldest and most worn away. Could the Hatfield Cemetery Committee have permission to use your photos, with proper credit? I'd be happy to share the map, the 1899 transcriptions, and the Excel spreadsheet derived from the transcriptions. Feel free to email me privately. Jamma812@gmail.com. Jan

Israel Sheldon, Southampton
I have finally started to work on memorials I have created in Southampton after putting it off for 6 months and going through my photos. I found the headstone for Israel's mother Meriam (Danks) Sheldon and her first husband Ezra Strong (they share a headstone) who I had from transcript already created memorials for but had not linked them. Memorials 122373104 & 122333591 . Thought they might be of interest. Thanks, Jim

Hill Burying Ground
Moo, just wanted you to know how much I appreciate all of your fine photos (and Jim Bianco's) at the Hill Burying Ground. I'm helping the Cemetery Commission to map that cemetery and your photos are priceless. Many of those stones have deteriorated even more since you took the photos. Your photos have been very helpful to refer to. Many thanks! Jan

Does he have two resting places or is one a duplicate in the wrong cemetery?

Thank you. K

Many thanks for the great photos in North Hadley, I started uploading my images back in April and then got sidetracked with another cemetery (a pattern of late). Jim
