Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am very fond of exploring cemetery grounds but the majority of the memorials I have created are gathered from a handful of reference books compiled of the entire record listings from individual cemeteries. I tend to gather records from towns in Franklin County that are close by to my home such as Jay, Wilton, Canton and Farmington if I can, and a bit of Androscoggin County as well: the town of Livermore and Livermore Falls.

It is a rewarding experience for me to help people locate their ancestors and lost loved ones. God bless! :)

YOUR TOMBSTONE

Your tombstone stands among the rest, Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out...On old gray granite stone.
It reaches out to all who care...It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist...You died...and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you...In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse...Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled...One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left...Who would have loved you so.
I wonder when you lived and loved; I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot...And come and visit you.

Benjamin Clough
31994372

My apologies, I have discovered that my memorial for Benjamin Clough, 31994372, created in 6 dec 2008, was inadvertently entered into the Thompson cemetery rather than the Gluke aka Old Parish Cemetery where it belongs. I regret my error and request that you remove your memorial 86446150.

The Thompson and Old Parish/Gluke Cemeteries are separated by a fence made of granite uprights and metal pipes.

Again, my apologies.
Blessings,
Alice

Pine Grove Cemetery
I noticed you recently added the memorial of Courtney Hammond Crommett and was wondering if you were at the cemetery & took pictures? I'm looking for photos of her grandparents (Phyllis (Hammond) & Herbert Crommett) headstone(s) who are buried in section 4 lot 437, as well.

RE: Grace Frick
In 1939 Yourcenar's intimate companion at the time, the literary scholar and Kansas City native Grace Frick, invited the writer to the United States to escape the outbreak of World War II in Europe. Yourcenar lectured in comparative literature in New York City and Sarah Lawrence College. Yourcenar was bisexual; she and Frick became lovers in 1937 and remained together until Frick's death in 1979. After ten years spent in Hartford, Connecticut, they bought a house in Northeast Harbor, Maine on Mount Desert Island, where they lived for decades. They are buried in twin tombstone side by side.

Yes, I think you can say they were "homosexuals" and 42 years together.

Regards, Elisa Rolle

RE: Mabel F and Edward J McCormick
I can't remember if I replied to this or not. Edward Joseph McCormick died July 1953. I believe he died in Greenwich CT and was moved up to Maine by Mabel F to her family plot. I do not have her maiden name.

Thanks a bunch for your help
