Bio and Links
We are volunteers for the Boylston Historical Society, working with the Boylston Cemetery Association to map, photograph, and link the graves in the town of Boylston to preserve the genealogical heritage of the town.

Additionally we are researching our own extended families and linking them on as we go.

Many times when we are working in some of the cemeteries we have leftover time and will photograph and create memorials for individuals pertaining to neither of the above endeavors and would welcome transfer requests from family for those individuals.

At present we cannot transfer Boylston memorials as we continue a multi-year effort to edit and complete their documentation with the Boylston Historical Society. We would greatly welcome information contribution to this effort!!

Matthew Craig/Danville Green
Hi Bruce,

While I was filling your request for Craig's in Danville, I thought I would add a photo of Matthew's stone that I took just after they cleaned it in 2014

I have added the correct parents for Jotham. I have also added the death date information for the others you sent.

Thanks, as always!

Your Work
Bruce & Nancy,

Just wanted to congratulate you both on the fine work you are doing researching the records of the Revolutionary War veterans buried in the Boylston cemetery, and then forwarding the bio information to me so that I could update their memorials here on

I want to thank you very much for taking the time and making the effort to not only take clear & precise pictures but to upload them into the system with the plot location.

I'm working on my sister-in-law's tree and she will be pleased to learn that more relatives are in the West Boylston cemetery than just her mum and grandparents. Keep up the excellent work!

Thank you for the fine photograph of my 8th Great grandfather, Nathaniel Winslow Sr,'s headstone at the Old Winslow Burying Ground in Marshfield MA. May I please have your permission to use this photo on my family tree given you full credit along with the photo? Best wishes.
