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 :)

Francis Green's memorial
Absolutely, I already deleted mine! Thank you so much for pointing it out to me and if you find I duplicated another of your memorials, do no hesitate to ask.

Your memorial looks absolutely beautiful.

RE: re: John Bursey
You're very welcome, I am in hopes to go back soon to get other graves and I will try and get a better picture of plate on top of cover, and a closer picture of the military tombstone.

Pope Family
Thanks so much Sharon for all the photo's. Truly a remarkably achievement in this cold weather. On the two mentioned not finding them on the monument go ahead and put the family monument on the memorial. I know that they are in that plot per the records of Mt. Auburn. Not many people are out in this weather taking photo's of headstones. You are a trooper!

RE: re: Pope Family - Mt Auburn Cemetery
Boy that's great! It will be good to sort them out. It's cold down here as well.

Yarrow Path 636
Sharon, I'm researching this Pope family who are buried in Yarrow Path, Plot 636. It seems there are three Lemuel's, Charles and Sarah buried there. If you ever get a chance when you're at Mt. Auburn can you drop by this plot and see if these folks have headstones. I believe they were all removed from their previous burial locations and all re-interred in Mt. Auburn on May 27, 1838. Let me know if you can find any headstones and if so I'll send out photo requests. Thanks and Happy New Year to you and yours.
