Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium and United Kingdom Contributions- While visiting Europe I took photographs in numerous cemeteries which I have uploaded here. I have no further information for these memorials other than what appears on the stones (some of which are unreadable in some areas), nor are any of these part of my family. I would be happy to transfer these memorials to family members.

RE: Nicholas Noyes
I believe Andover is correct. He was born in Newbury, Essex, MA 7 Mar 1701. He died in Andover, Essex, MA 17 May 1765. Headstone shows he died in 64th year of his life.
Vital Records of Andover, MA show his death there on 17 May 1765

RE: Riverview in Groveland
Went to St Patricks today. Photographed your two Brandolinis. Appears to be a Catholic cemetery, over half the names are Italian, another fifth are Eastern European. I didn't see other Brandolinis there.

RE: Riverview in Groveland
It's always nice to have someone take an interest in what you've been working on, makes one feel like someone cares. ;-) If the weather is nice, I'll pop up there tomorrow.

RE: Riverview in Groveland
I thought I was done, but when checking my photographs discovered that I had missed three blocks - the rough time frame for those would be 1880-1950, probably 200 graves or so. They are on my todo list. By all means check with the cemetery, Bob Guptil has been very supportive. We don't see a lot of Italian surnames showing up until the 20th century.

Going over the cemetery map of those blocks, I don't see any plots marked Brandolini, which doesn't mean much.

Groveland can be confusing. It used to be called East Bradford. Bradford itself is now part of Haverhill. Groveland is made up of land "taken" from Rowley, Ipswich and Georgetown - and perhaps Newbury - depending on your time frame, you may want to consider those towns as well. Groveland came into being officially in 1850.

Looking at Shirley, I should have run across her. John Gibney, who created the memorial, is not mistake-prone. The most recent section of the cemetery I photographed between snow coverings and I need to go back and do the markers that are flush with the ground as many were either covered in snow or frozen runoff. I will keep my eye open for her and other Brandolinis.

A tool I find useful when looking for cemeteries in the vicinity is:

And, of course, you can always search the entire county from Find A Grave. There are two Brandolinis listed in St. Patricks Cemetery in Haverhill, Agostina and Torino. See memorials #135971197 and #135971207 - perhaps I should have started this note with that. ;-)

Let me know if I can help in any way.

Lyon (La Guillotiere) Old Communal Cemetery

Your photos for this cemetery are not the good ones. These are photos from the Old Cemetery ("Ancien Cimetière") in Villeurbanne, Rhône, Rhône-Alpes, France.

John and Patrick Murphy St Joseph's
The records office does not have an interment book for the years 1913 and 1914. If someone else is buried with John and Patrick we would be able to find them that way, otherwise, there is no way of knowing where in the cemetery they are.

RE: Thank you
There was something about his face/eyes that told me he was a sweetie.
You are most welcome. Glad I could do something to make your loss a little less sad.

Can not thank you enough for taking the photo's of the Dizer Family headstone for me. It was very nice to get the perspective of the two stones. I don't think that Margaret and Sam's son, now 88, who I recently have visited, knew about the other stone. Or at least remembered it being there. He will be thrilled to have this picture, as am I. I'm off today, visiting a cemetery in Maine to find and take a photo for someone. Paying it forward. Again, thank you!
