Notes: If anyone spots an ancestor, relative, pal, etc., amongst my memorials, please give me a shout and I'll gladly turn them over to you. However, please note that I'm lazy about checking my email but I'll get to you eventually. The same goes for email regarding any corrections . . . I have filed these and will get to them eventually as well. Sorry for any delays, but I don't have a lot of time on my hands.|
I am a historian, ie., Family Historian and a bit of a tombstone tourist. I especially like to find gravestones from Colonial days through the late 1800's. Further, I feel strongly that gravestones are a testimony to the greatness of America's past. There are several reasons for my decision to transcribe cemeteries. First, I needed a hobby, because I quit smoking two years and three months ago. Second, I would love to obtain as many grave photos for my genealogy book as possible.
My family, on my mom's side, were colonists and came to American soil prior to 1637, according to Sidney Perley, author of "The History of Salem, MA". According to another source: "Upon a Ship called The Sparrow." My Branch of the "Patch" family first resided in Salem to Beverly to Wenham to Ipswich (all towns of Essex County), MA - then Newton to Concord to Groton (all towns of Middlesex County), MA - they came to Vermont in 1781 - being the 6th family to reside in Ludlow, Windsor County, VT.
Because of our beliefs in a united states we became Americans prior to 1776. However, our family did not seem to lean toward Puritan Stock, but were rather merchants of enterprise. We did not arrive in America as indentured servants as many did. We were, quite literally, "Fishermen" come to fish the abundant waters found here. In fact, the very first place of residence of Nicholas Patch Jr. was: Mackerell Cove on the Beverly side of Salem, MA.

the picture of the tombstone for #84959313 is actually for his grandson, the third of the same name, who apparently died 13 Feb 1876....perhaps you can change this picture???

Hello Diana, You asked about Mary E. Patch. She was my great grandmother. Her name was indeed Mary Elizabeth Whiby Patch. Nathaniel Lemuel Patch was her son. Her husband was Nathaniel Patch and he was indeed in the Civil War and a POW.
Are you related?

I was wondering if you happen to have a picture of Freelove Mason Cole's headstone. Her number is # 83766873. When I went to request one it said there was a photo however nothing is showing up under the photo tab. Thank you for your help and time.

|John Burbank||Duplicate memorials|
There are duplicate memorials for Ira Ingerson, #35826770 and 52398516 one in Striker Cem., the other in Woodland Memorial Park. Photos of the stones look identical.
This is confusing. Can you folks merge these in the correct cemetery? Note: Rebecca created the one in Striker Cem. and now it is maintained by Anonymous. The one in Woodland Memorial Park was created by Diana (couldn’t e-mail so sent this public message)
