Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first became interested in Genealogy when my Mother passed away in 1976. At her funeral my brother Joe and I were talking and realized that we new so little about our family history. Both our grandparents had passed away (Mothers side) in 1973 and no one left but our Aunt Fran (Moms sister) that new anything. I thought we better have a talk with our Aunt, I did, and that started the whole thing.
I have made many trips since to Salt Lake City, and been back to Massachusetts, Vermont, Ohio, etc., and all over California, (home State) to search records and Cemeteries. I use Family Tree Maker to keep tract of everything/everyone and have entered over 196,000+ names over the years to our data base. (All by hand, not one merged file) I do most of my research on line now, with some local travel here and there.

Transfer complete
Happy to do so. I have no relatives in this cemetery. This is a gift to help others find their relatives. If we ever get a sunny day, I will try to add a picture.

Hi Cliff
Regarding Moses (69782165)
l am confused about the info from the Veterans Card-1775 The line for "Marker placed: YES by whom S.A.R. and the line Type of Stone Marking Grave says NONE
Regarding Joanna (37148797) The only Asylum in the immidiate area(that l am aware of) did not open till after she died.
According to the " Inscriptions from burial grounds of the Nashaway Towns (published by Hertage books-1989) and Vital Records of Leominster,Ma. to the end of the year 1849(published by Franklin P. Rice-1911). Only Asa (28735563) George(28735632), Jane(28735619), Mary(28735634),Michael(16980664)and Susanna(56826066) are buried in Pine Grove Cemetery,Leominster,Ma. take Care Leon

Calvin Harvey/St Johnsbury Center Cemetery
Greetings Clifford,

I was trying to fill a photo request for Calvin Harvey. I discovered that he is not buried in St. Johnsbury Center Cemetery but in Grove Cemetery (St Johnsbury) with his parents Rawson and Susan and brother Oscar. I have placed memorials and photos up of the stone. You might want to change your memorial for Calvin to Grove Cemetery.

I also have Calvin and Laura's son Walter C. in Concord Village Cemetery with his wife Rosa and dau's Laura (Palmer) and Ada (Hastings).

Calvin's wife Laura Newhall Harvey Works is buried in Mt Pleasant Cemetery with her husband Barton.

Hope this helps!

Lydia Farrar Bond
Hi, Clifford. Can you please let Bill know who the parents were of Lydia Farrar, if you know, so he can create any familial links to them he might be able, and/or cite their names in the bio of her memrial. Can you please add any geneological info to other relatives memorials you might be able to suggest/familial links to parents? Thanks for your efforts on this site. Do you happen to have any old portraits of ancestors you might e able to add to memorials, with names identifing the people in them? That would sure be a fine addition to some of them. Thanks, again.

Hi again,
Below is what we added to John H. Howe, Abel Howe, and Sarah E. Gates Howe. If you'd like to add it to Eunice Chandler, that would be fine too.
Again, thanks for the "kick off" info.

HOWE-GATES gravestone obelisk is almost totally illegible.
We had a few clues of these four names:
