Ever since I can remember, I have had a fascination with cemeteries. There was one right down the street from our school, we used to walk through it often, It was so peaceful and the monuments were so beautiful. My father Calvin Russell Swallow is buried there now. My sister Mel and I have gone back to Massachusetts and other New England States and explored the cemeteries looking for ancestors. Genealogy and searching cemeteries for family has been a treasured time with my sister. What a gift it is to have a sister to share your interests with.|
I am hoping to make connections with distant cousins and share pictures and stories. I have posted many branches to our tree to do this.
I AM VERY LIBERAL WITH TRANSFERING MEMORIALS. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE FOR EVERYONE (COPY THEM AT YOUR PLEASURE) AND I FEEL NO SENSE OF OWNERSHIP OVER MEMORIALS THAT ARE NOT MY FAMILY. I LOVE DOCUMENTING GRAVES. I AM SOMEWHAT OFFENDED BY THOSE WHO DO NOT SHARE THAT SENSE OF GIVING. WE GET NO POINTS IN HEAVEN BY HOW MANY MEMORIALS WE CONTRIBUTED TO FINDAGRAVE. THERE ARE MANY FINE CONTRIBUTORS TO FIND A GRAVE AND A FEW THAT NEED TO GET OVER THEMSELVES. Remember...."God Loves a Cheerful Giver"!!
A POEM FROM ALL OF US AVID GENEALOGIST'S!!
Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone. The name and dates are chiseled out on polished, marble stone. It reaches out to all who care; it is to 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 not entirely on 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 as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. - AUTHOR UNKNOWN

|Diane Gravlee||Changes for memorials|
I sent some changes to memorials you manage in October that haven't been taken care of. Are you still active; let me know your situation. Thanks.
|Chelmsford Mark ||Lt. John Adams (1745-1849)|
Hi. I came across your memorial to John Adams (#24840087) and another for the same person, reflecting his burial in PA (memorial #5467686). I as wondering if you could somehow put in a link in your memorial to the other memorial? Or something in the notes?
P.S. Adams is an ancestor of Ivers Whitney Adams, the first coach of the first professional baseball team in Boston, the Red Stockings, which became the Boston Braves and eventually the Atlanta Braves.
|Jason & Jody||RE: Jarratt's|
Please end me a memorial # to the Jarrett's so I can transfer ownership, unless you already manage it of course.
|Kevin Avery||Hannah Ware Fairbanks|
Thank you Star for the transfer of Hannah's memorial. I wasnt expecting that, but I appreciate it very much. i will take good care of her.
|Melody Roswell||RE: Dorcas Morse/Clark|
I want you to have my email address because I might be able to help you with the Rhoades line a little bit. EMAIL: email@example.com
You are welcome very much for the proof on Dorcas Morse. My suggestion to you is to try to find town records for all of your early ancestors, most of the towns/villages held recordings of their towns on births, deaths and marriages.
Let me know if you need help alright? Glad to help.
|Melody Roswell||RE: Dorcas Morse/Clark|
You are welcome. Yes sometime town records can be off by a year and remember they had to register the births and sometimes they didn't get registered for a year because they didn't always go into the clerks office to do that right after a child had been born. That is the same reason we don't know if children died after birth or not.
Here is the proof that I have?

about Dorcas Morse
24 Jul 1645
Have a wonderful day!
PS: Which Rhoades are you out of? The reason that I ask this is because my gr-grandmother is a Rhoades out of Germany, her first settler was Hans Rhodtz (and their spellings have changed all over the place since they first got here!) Very hard to trace them back to the 1748 landing!
|D. Gould Hall||Dorcas Morse & Benjamin Clark|
Hi Star - we meet again. I'm researching my husband's family and found your memorial for Dorcas Morse. She is my husband's 7th Great Grandmother. I am finding quite a bit of information about her and Benjamin online in books and also on the genealogy sites. Thank you for posting her memorial. You and my husband are for sure cousins. I remember talking to you before when researching the Clark's who married into the Hall family.
|Melody Roswell||Dorcas Morse/Clark|
I am a gr-granddaughter through the Lockridge side of this family. Her title would have been 9th great grandmother for me. Amazing! I also love genealogy as well. On your memorial it states that Benjamin Clark was born on 9 Feb 1644 but Massachusetts town records dispute that and say 9 Dec 1643 to Joseph and Allice Clark. You may want to take a look at them as see this for yourself?? If you can't let me know and I would be more than happy to send you that documentation. They were married on 19 Nov 1665 in Medfield, Norfolk Co. MA as well.
You have done an excellent job on this memorial and wonderful pictures as well. If you choose not to make the corrections, this is after all your memorial however I have been doing genealogy for a lot of years and know people take this information as gospel so it does need to be correct.
Take care, hope to hear from you and please don't take offence to what I have said just know that I am a stickler for accuracy is all? No guessing just pure facts.
Thanks for sharing this will all of us!
|SamK||RE: mable lucille allgeier|
I respect your reasons, but can you at least add "Lucille" as a nickname as she did prefer that name. This cemetery is very actively photographed and chances are she will be duplicated in the future.
