WEE talked me into this...and I've been having a great time taking headstone photos from France, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Easter Island, Saigon, Africa, Iceland, Greenland, and all over New England. Rather nice hobby, now that I am retired.
Suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks so much for the pic of headstone! I was dying to know if my g-grandparents son Edward was with them (can't find his death or burial). Thanks to you, now I know he isn't.

Thanks so much for the photos. That is a very nice stone! Your photo also solved the mystery of what happened to his wife Ann. Thank you for that as well! I just added a memorial for Ann because of your efforts!

Thankyou so much for the transfers! I didn't realize you could change just the cemetery on a memorial. Will have to look more closely next time. I volunteer for my area in Maine also.
|Brenda Nickerson Hensley||Isabella Erskine|
I created a new memorial for Isabella, and linked her to Henry and her parents. If you would, please link her children Sarah T. and Thomas H. Her new memorial # is 125439173. Thank You.
|Brenda Nickerson Hensley||Isabelle Erskin|
I had information from a great aunt, who knew her personally. She had written that Isabelle was buried there. Will delete that memorial, and if there is not one already, will add her in the correct place.
|Michael Raymond||Lt. Paul Raymond Photo|
Bob, Thank you for posting the headstone photo of my 6xGreat Grandfather Lt. Paul Raymond, there in Littleton Common! You beat me to it..! LOL As the line you see going down the left center of the headstone is of the repairs my father, uncle and myself have done over the years..! Still researching why he is buried there and not in Bedford, MA where his wife Tabitha Balch-Raymond resided with their children. He may have just been traveling to or back from seeing his son Col.Paul Raymond who lived in Holden/Winchendon, MA.
Sorry for the empty post...My fingers got away from me..!
Have a great one..!

Thanks for reminding me I needed to link Agnes to Thomas. They were my g++-grandparents. Are you related to this family?
|Chris Carroll||Irish Brigade Hero|
I enlist your help in locating the grave of an Irish Brigade Hero buried in Boston. I'm seeking the grave of Lt. Thomas Henry O'Brien of the 2nd and 88th New York Regiment. Family lore was buried in Catholic Cemetery in Boston, But grave unmarked. Rumor brothers fought over financing headstone?
Dying June 19, 1900, there must be cemetery records for location of plot, or an obit in Boston paper. I would like to see this Irish Hero located, and honored with a government headstone. This Irish brother should be memorialized for his role in the Civil War, and later for Irish Freedom. Please help, I will defray cost.
Thomas Henry O'Brien was born in County Waterford. Irelands in ca March 1841, his family immigrating to Troy, New York in 1848. O'Brien, age 21 years; enrolled April 24, 186I, at Troy to serve two years; mustered in as First Lieutenant, Company H, May 14, I861, in the 2nd NYS Vols. He was engaged in the 1st land battle Big Bethel, VA June 10, 1861, before resigning due to conflict with Colonel Carr Nov. 3, 1861. O'Brien age 22 years. enrolled at New York City, to serve three years, and mustered in as Private, Company F, 88th NY Vols. on January 7, 1862, and was quickly promoted to Sergeant. Mustered as 2nd Lieutenant on September 13, 1862. He was wounded at Antietam, Sept. 17, 1862 slightly in the chest, and severely at Fredericksburg Dec. 13, 1862. His jaw was shattered and windpipe partially severed. He was dragged off Marye's Heights by Lt. J.W.Byron and two enlisted men. Was promoted 1st Lieutenant January 21,1863 and transferred to Company A. After recovering, he rejoined the 88th and was present at Gettysburg. He resigned his commission and spent most of 1864 as a student at Notre Dame, probably on the recommendation of Father Corby. He became Official Head Centre of The Fenian Brotherhood (Irish Republican Brotherhood) at Peekskill, New York in 1865. In January of 1866, he was arrested in Belfast and in Dublin in February of 1866, with brother formal Federal officers leading an insurrection against British rule of Ireland. He spent over a year in Mountjoy Prison, and Naas Jail, returning to the States in 1867. He married twice with no surviving children. He lived in Sarasota, New York, Chicago, and died of throat cancer in Boston
June 19, 1900.
He had a brother Patrick, his mother's maiden name was Welch. She probably died in Ireland.
