Just read your list of surnames here and noticed we have some in common. Rebecca from Salem, MA was my 7th great grandmother.

John Farrar & Rebecca Coburn in Mount Vernon Cemetery

Hi Bill,

Thank you for taking the gravestone photos of John Farrar & Rebecca Coburn in Mount Vernon Cemetery.

That removes any lingering doubts about them being buried there.

I haven't had a chance to get back to Mount Vernon Cemetery since 1990.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper
Sidney, Maine 04330

Memorials for Joshua, Harriet & Luther
Thank you so much for taking and posting these pictures for me. I know I will probably never get down there myself so having the pictures is the next best thing.

Memorials for Joshua, Harriet & Luther
The memorials are all set. This is wonderful. I had no idea where my Great Grandmother's brother, Luther ended up, when or where he passed away. All I have is his birth date.

Thank you so much.

Photo of Luther Milo Lee's Gravesite
Thank you so much Bill for taking this picture of my Great Great Grandfather's gravesite. I know I will never get to visit it in person seeing that its all the way down in Abington. So this means a lot to me.

Thank you once again.
