Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found this on another members profile and it truly expresses how I feel as well:

"The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people."

I'm searching for information for the following Families: Lavash, Lavache, Hynes, Higgins, Donohoe,Bursey, Bradbury, Brown, Demeo, Hayes, Sawin. I've been researching my roots for over 20 years and have now started to record cemeteries for others.

I've also started adding any Irish and Canadians that I come across, in tribute to my ancesters, military graves & any children that I find - they seem to be the hardest to find & I'm recording them as I find them.

This is an abbreviated list of cemeteries that I have visited so far - I've visited some of these because I have family members there -

Belmont Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Calvary Cemetery & Maus. - Waltham, MA
Cambridge Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Common Street Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Cudworth Cemetery - Scituate, MA
Evergreen Cemetery - Marboro, Ma
Evergreen Cemetery - Leominster, MA
Grove Hill Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Highland Meadow Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Holy Cross Cemetery & Maus. - Malden, MA
Mt. Auburn Cemetery - Watertown/Cambridge, MA
Mt. Feake Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - Arlington, MA
Westview Cemetery, Bedford, MA
North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Olde Burying Place - Arlington, MA
Old Burying Ground, AKA Ye Olde Burying Ground in Lexington, MA
Old Burying Place - Watertown, MA
Puritan Lawn Cemetery - Peabody, Ma
Ridgelawn Cemetery - Watertown, MA
St. Pauls Cemetery - Arlington, MA
St. Patricks Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Woodlawn Cemetery & Crem. - Everett, MA
and a few others.
I normally photograph the whole family plot if it's more than a single grave & will post those as well.

Thank you to Linda Shepard Salzer for all her pics, corrections and updates for all the memorials that I set up for North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - I greatly appreciate it :)

Photo for Mary Peabody Marsh Waters
Thanks so much for this photo. It confirms full names of the Waters children and maiden names of the wives. Robert Henry Waters is my wife's maternal 2nd great-grandfather.
I noticed there was a tablet on either side of the door on the gravesite. If the tablet on the other side of the one you posted a photo of is different, could you please take that one also and post it?

Baxter family Mr. Auburn
Thanks for looking Sharon. I hope it's not to cold for you. Kind of cold in the cemeteries in the winter, even here in the South. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Gookin sites
Sharon, Thanks for beautiful photos on the above sites in Mt Auburn. Looks like no snow yet. I call your attention to the Mary Bradford Fairchild memorial #138831812. This is a very important site in Mt Auburn that has been overlooked. Her husband, Rev Fairchild site got created but Mary overlooked. Also, the Timothy Farrar Jr. & Sr. sites. Both of these were prominent attorneys. Thanks for all your help. Richard Happy Upcoming Holidays.

Thanks very much!
Thanks very much for locating and photographing the gravesite for Helen Hopekirk Wilson. I have been researching Hopekirk's life and career as a musician for many years. It was fascinating to learn that her final resting place is in the family burial plot of her devoted friend and student Constance Huntington Hall. I had no idea this was the case!

RE: Thank you very much!
Beatiful words that mean a lot to me! I admire your work too, I'm sure lots of families admire you too.
