|Bio and Links|
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.

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.

|Marilyn Kenyon, Psy.D.||Question re: Editha Kellogg Moodey|
On memorial #1904391, for Editha Moodey, you list her parents as Joseph Kellogg and Abigail Terry. What was your source? Was this part of the cemetery records? I've been unable to locate a source, other than family trees, which document them as her parents.
|Rebecca Dodds||Sarah Pitkin Porter|
Thanks Moo, for such a speedy response to my request to connect Sarah to her parents and many siblings. And thanks for creating and maintaining her memorial so I could find it in the first place.

|Richard R. John||Benjamin Edwards (died 1741)|
Recently my son and I visited the Bridge Street Cemetery in Northampton to try to find the gravestone of our ancestor, Benjamin Edwards (died 1741). We are very grateful to you for photographing it. Unfortunately, though we purchased a site map, and spent over an hour inspecting gravestones, we could not find it. Might you recall WHERE in the graveyard Edwards's gravestone is located? Or at the very least in whose grave plot? If so I would be grateful if you would let me know. You could contact me on this public list, or at my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you! We appreciate your excellent sleuthing.

|BGL||Memorial# 20849281, for “Brickmaker” Thomas Prentice (1674-1709)|
I am a Prentice descendant, and I have suggestions for your Memorial# 20849281, for “Brickmaker” Thomas Prentice (1674-1709), whose stone you photographed in the Cambridge Old Burying Ground. My source is the standard Prentice genealogy reference, C.F. Binney’s The History and Genealogy of the Prentice or Prentiss Family, in New England, from 1631 to 1883, 2nd edition, 1883. Please see p.6.
Binney identifies Thomas’ parents as: Solomon Prentice and Solomon’s first wife Elizabeth (maiden surname unknown). There is a FG memorial for Solomon (#12135490), so you could link to that. I don’t think there is one for his mother Elizabeth. Binney describes this Thomas as:
“Thomas Prentice, ‘husbandman’ and ‘brickmaker,’ son of Solomon, Sen., and Elizabeth, d. Dec. 7 or 17, 1709; m., 1st, about 1696, Maria Russell, who died May 1, 1701 ; m., 2d, Nov. 6, 1701, Mary Batson, of Boston. In 1697 he owned the covenant, and was admitted to First Church, Cambridge, July 13, 1701. His estate, £506 2s. 6d. The inventory mentions his brickyard, his first wife's wearing apparel, £2 ; a riding-hood in Mrs. Nathaniel Hancock's hands; gun, sword, and cane, £2 ; homestead on both sides of high- way, £70 ; land bounded by lands of Solomon Prentice, Nathaniel Wyeth, and Henry Prentice. His widow m., 2d, Nathaniel Robbins, of Charlestown, Mass., and again m. ___ Lyon.; she d. March 2, 1760, ae. 84. . . .Mary, wife of Nathaniel Robbins, settled Thomas Prentice's estate.”
Easy enough to copy/paste. Binney also listed eight children, born between 1697-1709.
