Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I am a Cambridge native born into a large Irish, Catholic family. My parents are James H. Daley and Alida Doherty Daley, both are at rest at the Cambridge City Cemetery. I am a fourth generation Massachusetts woman. Cambridge Cemetery and Mount Auburn Cemetery have always been intriguing places to visit. My parents took us there from a very young age. As I got older I found more interest in the people who rested there. It felt like a walk back into history to read the different stones and wonder about the people who had passed.
I live in Largo, Florida if anyone is looking for a grave in this area, send me a message! I did a lot of grave searching with my sister Mary when I lived up in MA. back in 2008. I really miss the adventure and satisfaction of helping someone find a grave!

Re :Wright (1868) at Mt Hope...
Just to add to what has already been said, the memorial for Wright (1868) was created by Daryl Verstreate from an entry in the Mt Hope Interment Records (https://www.lib.rochester.edu/IN/RBSCP/Databases/IMAGES/MtHope/disc1/00000754.pdf) for "Wm Wrights, child" who was stillborn. Unfortunately, that burial was in the Public Grounds at that time, which means there is not going to be a surviving marker.

As for your g g g g grandparents, I assume the birth year was 1802 and 1808? Since Daryl has created entries for almost all burials recorded in the Mt Hope Interment Records up through 1892, it seems unlikely (although not impossible) that they have an entry there. You can look here at the online interment records: https://www.lib.rochester.edu/index.cfm?page=3310 And, of course, they would have to have lived a long time to make it beyond 1892, so that seems unlikely, although again not impossible, so you could look through years after 1892.

You can also try looking in this survey of surviving legible markers that have been recorded in virtually all (but a couple of the most modern) sections of the cemetery: http://mcnygenealogy.com/cem/mh-intro.htm (Unfortunately, though, you have to search a section at a time.)

Wright Request
Hi. Can you clarify the dates a bit? The memorial lists a death date of 1868. Your note lists birth dates of 1902 for James and 1908 for Theodocia. The cemetery records are ordered by death dates, though. Do you have death years for the relatives that you're trying to find? Feel free to leave me a public message.

Help Please
Rita, I hope you can help me on this. You took some of the photos of the Find a Grave Memorial for Otis Norcross #44588830(1811-1882). I wish to write a memorial for his wife, Lucy Ann Lane Norcross. From what I can determine, he is buried in Lot 500 and she in Lot 900.
I know that he was Mayor of Boston, but she gave birth to 8 children of his, and sadly in 1900, only 3 were yet surviving. I think that she deserves a memorial too!
I am going to write the memorial and then request a photo of her headstone. I thought that she might be listed on his..but she outlived him by a lot. She died at 100 on Feb 15, 1916.
Thank you for your help..and thank you for the photos of the tomb of Otis.

Hi - thank you so much for forwarding the photos of possible stones for Ann. I greatly appreciate you spending the time to do this for me.
I do photos locally; I know how hard it can be to read old stones, and even to locate ones that are right there. so, thanks again!
