Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in central Massachusetts with my wife Barbara. Formerly the Director of Operations at a Worcester Mass. facility, I am now retired, leaving me much more time for prowling through graveyards!
I particularly like discovering and photographing old gravestones, and consider myself very fortunate to be living in New England where so many of the early settlers are buried. I also try to photograph as many graves of veterans I come across, from those who fought in the Revolutionary War through the present time.

My objectives are two-fold:

1.When I post photos of their graves on Find A Grave, along with as much bio information as I can gather about them, I feel that I am honoring their lives, in some small way.
2. I want to capture as many of these old stones on disk before acid rain, vandalism, snowplows, and whatever obliterates them forever!
(Being a graveyard junkie, however, I am apt to take a picture of any interesting grave that catches my eye...regardless of the era)!

It is entirely up to you if you want to transfer management, it means so much to me to have the extra information. I am so appreciative of all of you who put your time and effort into creating the memorials for the people who might not even be related to you. Thank you so much for all you do.

Eric Smith
Hi Jim,
I was having problems reaching you via normal e-mail, so I'll try this mode.

Doing a follow-up on Eric Smith. We have done some more research on Eric Smith and have confirmed that indeed he is the relative of my wife (Carole). The photo request has been fulfilled for him. Would you please transfer his site to us for management. Thanks for your help!

Piper family requests
I posted grave photos of Mary Ann Piper and her husband George. George's gravestone was broken and half buried but it looks like they put up a new stone for both of them.
