Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found this on another members profile and it truly 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."

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 20 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.

This is an abbreviated list of cemeteries that I have visited so far - I've visited some of these because I have family members there -

Belmont Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Calvary Cemetery & Maus. - Waltham, MA
Cambridge Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Common Street Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Cudworth Cemetery - Scituate, MA
Evergreen Cemetery - Marboro, Ma
Evergreen Cemetery - Leominster, MA
Grove Hill Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Highland Meadow Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Holy Cross Cemetery & Maus. - Malden, MA
Mt. Auburn Cemetery - Watertown/Cambridge, MA
Mt. Feake Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - Arlington, MA
Westview Cemetery, Bedford, MA
North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Olde Burying Place - Arlington, MA
Old Burying Ground, AKA Ye Olde Burying Ground in Lexington, MA
Old Burying Place - Watertown, MA
Puritan Lawn Cemetery - Peabody, Ma
Ridgelawn Cemetery - Watertown, MA
St. Pauls Cemetery - Arlington, MA
St. Patricks Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Woodlawn Cemetery & Crem. - Everett, MA
and a few others.
I normally photograph the whole family plot if it's more than a single grave & will post those as well.

Thank you to Linda Shepard Salzer for all her pics, corrections and updates for all the memorials that I set up for North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - I greatly appreciate it :)

John Gardner and Mary (Beach) White family
A belated thank you for the photos at Mount Auburn for the John Gardner White family.

Wife Mary was my main focus, she representing an unbroken line of descent from my immigrant ancestor Capt. Cyprian Nichols, who arrived at Hartford by 1646 as an apparent 4-year old (may or may not have been an orphan at his arrival). Unfortunately, none of Mary's children married and her line ended with the death of son Francis in 1948. But, within the intervening 300+ years the line did add to the fabric of American history.

RE: James Fowle Baldwin & family
Sharon, I put in some corrections for the Baldwin family memorials where I could find vital records for them. Again, thank you for your great photos and for adding memorials of the children, which I had not known about before.

Thanks for the photo Sharon. I saw the dates on the headstones and noticed the two other people on the headstone. I did two photo requests. Can you add a photo to their memorials?

Bart & Ariel Hart
Good morning, Sharon,

I just found your photos of Bart & Arielʻs graves on find a grave... thank you so much for posting them. They are aunt and uncle of my husbandʻs step mother and we still have the lovely crystal bowl they gave my husband and I as a wedding gift. May I use your photos on my private family tree? I always give credit to the photographers... thanks so much...
