Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived in Acushnet, MA. since 1958. I'm a 2nd generation American on both sides of my family so it didn't take me very long to create memorials for my departed relatives in the local cemeteries.
My parents, David Pimental and Norma S. Pimental, maternal grandparents, Harry #39060089 and Bertha (Baumeister) Settele #39060089, plus maternal aunts and uncles, Louis H. Settele #39060184 and his wife, Kathleen “Kay” Higham #39060231 and Harry Settele Jr #39059970 and his wife, Mary Anna Josefek #39060037, 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 on FAG.

Since 2012 I've been concentrating on Rural Cemetery which is also the final resting place for my paternal grandparents, Manuel Dias Pimental Jr #41299437 and Valentina (Mello) Pimental #41294992, Grand-aunt and Godmother, Amelia “Millie” (Mello) Monteiro #41294450, paternal great-grandparents, Manuel #41294221 and Rosa (Botelho) de Mello #41294307 and Grand-aunt Beatrice “Bea” Edwards #41294366.

I usually don't post my photos to memorials with existing headstone photos unless mine is truly a better shot (clearer, brighter, color-balanced or cropped so it can be read), but when posting a photo to an existing memorial using the Upload & Transcribe function there isn't any indicator that a photo already exists, so it does happen. If I've done that to your memorial I'll be happy to remove my photo if you ask.

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 40 of the memorials I've created and always like to see them in the care of family.

I post most of my headstone photos to Ancestry in my FAG Research tree under my Ancestry user name "trinka5364". I also post my photos to Ancestry when I find that I've photographed stones that are already have photos posted in FAG.

Anyone who wishes to use these headstone photos for non-commercial purposes should have the courtesy to give credit to the photographer when copying: ex. "Photo by D J Pimentel"

The flowers I leave on memorials are mostly shots I've taken of flowers in my garden or ones I took when visiting other gardens on vacation.

Thank you
Living in Colorado makes it hard for me to visit all the MA and RI cemeteries I would like to see. I love Find A Grave and have looked for a few markers for others. Nothing like your work. Just a hearty thank you. I found your entry for Walter B. Peck, Mary A. Carson and Eliza Tingley Peck Ashley buried in Rural Cemetery. I see on the side of the stone the name Platt. I'll look it up, since I'm curious to see who else is buried in the plot. I read your profile and it doesn't look like we have any ancestors in common. Too bad. Best regards, Susan

thank you
just wanted to say thank you for your many contributions to Find A Grave and for your patience as I send you links and suggestions. Your efforts are helping folks now and in generations to come. I appreciate (and personally understand) the time and effort it takes to make memorials more than just a birth/death date.
best regards and enjoy the summer.

I came across this person Andrew Elwood Hathaway, he is my family tree and I notice that you have his death at 1961 but I do think that is correct when I done a Search I come up with 1931 which he was 84 when he died and on the grave site he would be 113 yrs. I am not trying to tell you your job, I am just letting you know that i am confused.
