|Bio and Links|
LOCATION: 9/1/13 I've moved to the South Shore of Mass. and will be there until the end of May 2014 - this will make it more difficult for me to fulfull requests in the Boston area, but I will do what I can while I'm in the area working. :)|
I recently found this on another members profile and found how truly it 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."
There is quiet dignity and history among the trees, headstones, flowers and water fountains in the cemeteries - respect has been earned.
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 15 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.
**** During the New England winter months, photo requests will take longer to fill while there's snow on the ground ****

|BarreNative||H Preston Tuttle--Watertown|
Thank you for the photo. How poorly his stone has withstood less than a hundred years' time! The quality was good enough for me to see "Tuttle" and the "9" and "7" of his death year. He turned out to be quite the little puzzle, solved only when I started working with "Tuttle."
I was looking for Prestons at one time and one of his parents probably is one to come up with his name. I'll keep him in mind.

Hello Ms. Hawkins,
Thank you very much for taking the picture of Agrippino Bellino's gravesite at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA. He was a very sweet man and I appreciate having this picture very much.

|Jacki, Weymouth Massachusetts||That was fast|
We are now narrowed down to Caleb Loring on Fir Ave being the Caleb that died 1854? Yikes!... lol Thanks for your help as always Sharon. Jacki
|Jacki, Weymouth Massachusetts||Caleb Loring|
Hi Sharon. I figured out who he is and made a profile for him. He is at 120339421. Can you hang the pictures there? Thanks, Jacki
|Jacki, Weymouth Massachusetts||Caleb Gould Loring|
The picture that you got today was on Rose Path, another Caleb Gould Loring. Can you take it off of 120095054 (Fir Ave) and put it on 67043079 (Rose Path).
Thank you so much for getting there, it will be much easier to differentiate between the two Caleb Gould Loring's now. Jacki
Thank you so much for taking the photo of the family marker. I was so excited when I found a note in my great grandmothers genealogy book about the plot. (And then to find the website for the cemetery to be so user friendly with the map) I really appreciate the picture and the time you took out of your day to upload it to so many memorials. I wasn't sure if there would be individual markers or not. I have more on the list from the plot but I haven't figured out who the names are yet. I might be adding more. Either way THANK YOU! :)

Thank you very much for the photos of Cephas, Alice and Alfred Chamberlin.
I was hoping you would also find daughter, Susan who was also listed in that plot.
Thanks for photographing the entire plot. It's interesting to see different divisions.
