Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching and documenting my family history and that of my husband's for 35 years.

I am recording our local Maplewood Cemetery, but it's taking time, as you can imagine. My son recorded Weeks' Cemetery for his Eagle project here in our town also.

Glad for edits, corrections, additional info.

You may use my photos without asking permission. No problem at all. Have a blessed day!

Ode to Maplewood Cemetery
By Emily C.A. Snyder, 2014:

There’s a stone by my front porch
Shaded by the maple bough
That asks one simple question:
Not who or when – but “Howe?”

Who lies beneath this marker?
When did he pass away?
Was this a him or her—
Or a family of “they?”

What was the man’s profession?
If only someone knew--?
But that is now a “Howe,”
And here’s no hint of “Who.”

What joys, perchance, were hers
That she savoured in her Then,
But How will neither speak of Whom
Much less to answer: “When.”

And whom did this Howe love?
Did she accept his solemn vow?
What wars disturbed their slumber,
As their name disturbs me now?

Stranger graves than this
Have laid their secrets bare
Disclosing who and when—
And better yet still!—Where.

“Why” is often hid from me
Although I sometimes guess
And whisper my conjecture
Over those who’ve gone to rest.

But I am restless, I am restless,
I can’t unknit my brow:
As I look out to the Maplewood
And wonder: “Howe, Howe, Howe!”

So here’s what I will do
(And they can’t stop me anyhow!):
I shall say that they were happy
And it doesn’t matter Howe.

RE: Jenni Rice

Thanks. No, not a relative. Just a collector of vintage photos. When I find one that has an identification that I can verify, I'll add it to this site. Thanks again. Regards,

Oh! I just saw the message that you left on my profile. I will re-submit a grave photo request. Please remove the photo that you put there of the cemetery entrance. Thanks!

George E. A. Gage - Maplewood Cemetery
Thank you for attempting to fulfill my photo request for George Gage at Maplewood Cemetery in Marlborough. What you posted, however, is a photo of the cemetery itself. Is that an error? I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but if this is the only photo that you have for George's grave, will you please remove it from his profile? I don't need another copy of the cemetery photo; I'm seeking a photo of the actual grave site. Thanks!

Thank you for the information you posted about my Grandfather and Grandmother. It was greatly appreciated and a pleasure to read about your research and project. I have been to weeks cemetery many times over the years. As a native of Hudson Mass I spent many hours hunting and fishing in this area. Parmenter Road is nearby where my Grandfather was born.

Dear Chris,

I would like to thank you for the seven transfers you did for me, but unfortunately, while doing more extensive research on this lineage of my family, they have become non-relatives/non-ancestors. In fairness to you, I am transferring them back to you. You worked too hard not to have them back.

Thanks again,

John Hale Howe
Chris, are you related to John Howe? I have a pic of him (used by permission of the Osage County Kansas Historical Society) on my facebook page that you might enjoy seeing.
He is labeled in one of the GAR pictures:)
