|Bio and Links|
I retired in April 2005. I started doing genealogy in August 2005. It all started with my wife, Dianne,(Dianne E. Smith) and her interest. I've enjoy traveling to many cemeteries. Dianne would say, "My best friends were all cold". She passed away, November 12, 2007.|
I have since married Bonnie (Snow) Johnson in 2009. I told her I would do my best NOT to let grass grow under her feet. Together, we enjoy "grave searching" for others as we can.
If you would like to use any photos I may have posted, all we ask if you give credit to us something like, "Photo courtesy of FindAGrave.com member #47060899".

Photos of all know stones, as well as lists of lost stones, moved stones,location maps, etc can be found on the church's website Fishkillreformed.org. These photos will be better than any taken now, as they were taken 15-16 years ago, and, in some cases, were chalked, to facilitate reading the inscriptions. We no longer allow this. For further information, please contact me.

|Ray Henry||Capt Abiel Lovejoy|
John, I'm curious as to why you created a memorial for Capt. Abiel Lovejoy at the Lovejoy cemetery in Albion?
From the research I have done, Capt. Abiel was buried in Sidney on his farm (near the Kennebec River).
Any insight would be appreciated.

Find A Grave Memorial# 57622966
lists death as 11 July 1826
Is there any way you might find an age at death or a year of birth for him? Or a photo of the stone.
Numerous people think he is the same man who lived in Portland Maine but that is 190 or so miles away from this burial.
He maybe my ancestor or those other people who...
Thank You John, appreciate your time and efforts for FindaGrave. Beryl Meehan
