Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived in Acushnet, MA. since 1958.
My parents, Davd Pimental and Norma S. Pimental, maternal grandparents, Harry Settele and Bertha B. Settele, plus several aunts and uncles are at Pine Grove Cemetery in New Bedford so I started adding to the entries there to aid others researching their genealogy and got hooked on photographing stones and adding to the data here.

Please don't hesitate to ask for a transfer of any relative of yours that I've entered, no matter how distantly related. I'm related to only 38 of memorials I've created and always like to see them in the care of family.

I don't mind when headstone photos I've posted here are used in family trees but I DO mind when users don't acknowledge that they've copied them from FAG so I've also been posting most of them to my FAG research tree under my Ancestry user name "trinka5364".

This should help users of both sites add them to their trees and at least when copied from the tree, the photo is attributed to me. It may be your relative but I'm the one who spent my day off walking through the cemetery taking pictures, and for some difficult stones I may have made a second trip to get a better shot, so please have the courtesy to give credit to the photographer when copying.

Thank You Donna, you're the best! I posted the information on F/B, and even though our extended family is spread out across the country, we all remember this little cemetery. It is nice to know, after all this time, that these people do have a name and a history. Thanks again for providing information for an answer to what seemed like an unanswerable question!

I know this is far fetched, but I'm really curious. Would you happen to have any general information about a small cemetery located on Forbes St. in the n. end of the city? It is over-grown and I can't make out any details from looking at maps on the internet. I've looked through New Bedford directories for information, I can't find any listing, it is just a family plot near a house on the side of the street.

This link is from Google maps:,-70.9340129,3a,90y,180.13h,74.32t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1so3aFCUnNCU2TaRkbRwv95g!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Thank You

RE: Sarah E. (Russell) Ricketson Packard #110511322
Hi, Thank you for taking the time to verify Sarah's record. On Ancestry they just put an index card only record on but unfortunately you can't look at the index card. I would like to verify that name, etc on the card sometimes when it looks questionable. I am pretty good at deciphering handwriting. Thank you again for your help. Judi Schoonover

Thanks for responding. Just found it odd to find a record on Ancestry that shows Sarah E Betterson marrying Henry Packard on the same date, same place. Thanks, Judi Schoonover

Yes, my brother keeps fetting the run around from the company that is supposed to fix their mistake. Thanks for checking.

RE: Catharine C. Bosworth Delano # 147696959
You're welcome. I own a copy of the Bosworth Genealogy by Mrs. Mary Bosworth Clarke. Using the genealogy, coupled with all the available records on Ancestry and Family Search, I can usually figure out the line of descent. If you come across any more Bosworths in your travels, I'll be happy to take a look.

I know it's hard to tear ourselves away from this sometimes. Don't work yourself too hard! Thanks! Janet

Have 5 George H Howland's on my data base - sometimes its almost impossible to find the correct one - the dates on the headstones have helped me immensely - Thanks for adding files to Find A Grave

It looks like his last name should be spelled Maxfeld. That is also the way it is spelled on his daughter's grave stone.
