Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please do not ask me to add birth & death places to the headers of memorials that I have created if the info already appears in the memorial. Those fields are not searchable and there is no reason to duplicate the info.

Same with transcriptions where the info already appears on the memorials via gravestone photos or in the bio section. Find A Grave Support has confirmed the transcription field should include things such as "Mother" "Rest in Peace", a poem, etc. It is not meant to include everything written on the stone. They also said "It is up to the originating member what they include as long as you make sure that the names, birth and death dates/years are included in the fields available on the memorial page".

Please use the "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" button on the memorial to ask for transfers. Please show relationship on transfer requests. Thanks.

If you have a question, comment or info to be added to a specific memorial, please go to that memorial and suggest a correction. Thanks.

Find A Grave Memorial# 52267043
Have added photos for Little Tommy Guptill,
Find A Grave Memorial# 52267043- Shaw / South Albion Cemetery. Took photos of front and back of stone so you can see both his parents names. Perhaps you have other documentation, but his stone sets close to the road and you can see the Abbott lot sets back behind the Johnston Lot, which we think Tommy is in. Another photo added by someone else shows the Abbott lot, but Tommy's stone is not in that lot. Anyway, as mentioned you may have a listing that says it is part of the Abbott lot. Will let you decide how you wish to list it in his bio.
Thanks for your time. :)

Frank (Frankie) Howe
Hello Bev,
Lisa left a message indicating "Frankie" in Maplewood Cemetery (Fairfield, Me.) is probably the son of Horace L. Howe & Sarah Ellis Howe Cilley. Frankie's stone is practically unreadable. But the name Howe does stand out a bit. Since he is next to Florence (her birth parents are correct) we thought Howe was Sarah's maiden name was Howe, not another married name.
Will send you edits so you can easily correct our mistakes. (Oh the shame!)

Message sent about Frankie's parents:
RE: Cilley- Florence & Frank
I'm pretty sure baby Frank Lesley Howe is the son of Horace L. Howe & Sarah Ellis Howe Cilley's son. Frank is listed with Horace in the Nathan Hale Cem Collection

RE: Beckwith in Maplewood
Thank you for taking time to respond. The stones are probably flat, therefore harder to find searching on foot with no lot numbers. Knowing other surnames in lot / plot area should be very helpful! Thanks again- hope you are feeling much better. :)

Resthaven Cemetery/Windsor ME
Find A Grave Memorial# 125096760 is for John Wesley Harriman. The gravestone is for him, his mother and another young sibling.

The husband and father is William Henry Harriman (my 2nd great grandfather) who died in Brockton, Massachusetts in 1910. His death certificate indicates that he was buried in Windsor, Maine. He is not listed in a search of Harriman's in Resthaven Cemetery. Can you give me any hints on how to find out if he is buried there?

Purple Heart Entries

A big thanks to you for all your contributions. I am a West Point graduate and am particularly interested in stones having the inscription PH or Purple Heart thereon, as that allows for registration of the individual on the Purple Heart Hall of Honor ( This may be a much bigger task than I realize, but if you add photos of stones having that inscription, might you be able to notify me?
