Bio Photo ** My gravestone photos are for sharing! Please use them freely for your personal family research projects. However, if you re-publish them online, please include a photo credit "Photo by Find A Grave volunteer Debi C." Proper photo credit further encourages the volunteerism which makes this awesome resource possible. Thanks! **

I still consider myself a Rhode Islander - where I grew up, lived, worked, and played for some 50 odd years - but as of July 2012, now call Gray Maine "home".

My husband of 27+ years sometimes pokes fun at me for spending much of my free time in cemeteries, but I continue to be engrossed in the study of family history and find cemeteries simply fascinating!

My own genealogy work began when my Dad died just two months before seeing the new millennium and hasn't stopped since. I enjoy helping others realize their family history goals and often take photos or conduct limited research projects - just for fun! - on a volunteer basis.

Many of my own ancestors have been in southeastern New England for centuries. My more recently "imported" predecessors were from England and Ireland.

RE: Sarah Ann Greene Wright Watson
Happy to help out. I have a "thing" about finding out the women's maiden names and who their parents were. It's neat to link them together and memorialize them here. :-)
