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.

My Mom @-->--Ruth Bursey Lavash

Her parents:
William Nelson Bursey
Flora Lillian Bradbury Bursey

Her Grandparents:
William Robert Bursey
Mary Brown Bursey

Her Great Grandparents:
Stephen Brown
Catherine Porter Brown

My Dad's parents:
Raymond Lavash
Ellen Veronica Hynes Lavash

My Dad's Grandparents:
Caroline Sampson Lavash
Ernest Paul Lavash

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 :)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sharon, I just put in a photo request for the above & his wife in Mt. Auburn. Dr. Knudson was prominent in Boston University circles as well as theology circles. Any help locating this gravesite greatly appreciated. Richard

I know my cousin Mrs. Holbrook thanked you for this photograph, but it seems we both put in a request so I'd like to also say thank you. We've worked so long and so hard to find Gussie and it does my heart good to see that she has a headstone. So many of her relatives don't. Thank you for your time.

Sharon - Thank you for uploading those photos for Marcella McKirk. Her husband, Cornelius, was my grandmother's uncle.

re: Bartholomew O'Callaghan
Thank you for the heads up. I'm discovering some of my sources are really wrong about Cambridge cemeteries in particular! Time to make some phone calls, lol. Thank you again :)

Hi again Sharon,

Thanks for re-adding the photos to the Clark family, and thanks for filling my photo requests. Again, let me apologize for my misunderstanding of the whole situation. I didn't understand until I saw your plot edits that you submitted, and only then realized that they were all buried at the same plot.

Best regards,
