Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is my passion so when I add a memorial I try to find out vital info for that person.

My motto- "If you donít know your history, then you donít know anything. You are a leaf that doesnít know it is part of a tree."~ Michael Crichton

Primary family surnames researching: Rice, Trainor, Marin, Berube, Heavner, Mick, Pritt

I have added memorials from some photographs I have taken, obituaries, death records/certificates found in public records and some cemetery listings and veterans records.

Please DO ask for transfers.
I believe memorials belong to those who loved or know more about them than I. Their memorial will be better honored with your personal knowledge of them.
Will only refuse those I am related to.

Welcome corrections, additions and links to family members (not burial unknowns). Please use the edit tab.

My photos of GRAVES ONLY may be copied. I took them for you and anyone interested. Why take them and post them here if not sharing? Personal photos I wish to be contacted for permission to copy so I know whose hands they are in.

Photo quality varies with light and weather. If you captured a better photo than mine and wish to post it, just let me know so I can delete mine.

Obituaries are copyrighted, so I won't post them but use info from them. I will ignore obituaries sent to me to post.

Unmarked graves sadden my heart.
An Irish poem that reminds us marking our loved ones final resting places is a special gift.

Scatter me not to the restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times
The family ties are shared.
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who came to see.
A simple lasting proof that says
I loved and you loved me.

(by D.H.Cramer)

In the event that I become inactive at findagrave for some reason, I would like all memorials I created at Shirley Village Cemetery and Shirley Center Cemetery,Shirley, MA. to be transfered to findagrave member #48749977. She photographed both these cemeteries fully and is the reason these memorials exist at findagrave.

for my quick reference- linking code

RE: Donato Marino
No but thanks anyways, turns out that the chase of the Marino family of this line has ended and that they are not mine the name was original Marinaccio so you might want to add that for the poor people chasing this family. it took me three days to discover the name change, when I located some records in PA from the sons of italy that had an original Italian record that stated the original last name. Frustrating to say the least I will try to add what I find so people can locate the correct info on this family. On to the next lead LOL

RE: Donato Marino
Okay Got it, I think what is going on is that my Lorenzo Lawrence Marino is most likely the brother of Luigi and that Donato was enumerated in his house with his wife and young child. I have been following this family all over the place. They were in MA, MD, then PA. I also believe that Benadino is related and another relative

RE: Moses Bullard - Hope Cemetery
The pictures for Moses are all set.

Glad you're able to be back doing what you love to do. I'm sure your other photographer is as appreciative of your assistance as I was/am.

Yes, I have been spending quite a bit of my time in Hope. As you know, it's so big! I've been mostly fulfilling photo requests, while photo'ing other stones as I can. I'm always glad when my photos match up with your pages. You do such an awesome job researching.

Best regards,

RE: Benjamin Brown #107049727
I planned to send a request to a volunteer organization in Shirley to check the cemetery record so thank you to you and your friend. I have been thinking about this and beginning to suspect that is my Benjamin buried in Shirley. The plot in Townsend was bought by Benjamin's grandson George in 1901 according to my father's information. I thought Benjamin and his wife were buried on the family farm and moved to Hillside Cem. Maybe not. I hope the name of the person who supplied the Shirley plot is in the record. That could be a big help.

RE: Benjamin Brown #107049727
According to a family tree on Ancestry, Deacon Joseph Brown descends from a different immigrant Brown relative to my Benjamin Brown of Townsend, MA. Since the Shirley Benjamin Brown was buried near Joseph Brown, I have to conclude that the common death dates are a coincidence or an error was made. Our discussion makes me realize I need to fill out histories for my Shirley Village Cem. Browns.

RE: Benjamin Brown #107049727
Sorry, I got off track from the answer you wanted. I was looking in the Village cem. where Samuel S. Brown #150423939 and other Browns are buried. Samuel is Benjamin's son and died 1876. I don't see how that can be the same Benjamin Brown although the death dates are the same. Maybe the date is incorrect.

RE: Benjamin Brown #107049727
Hi Linda,
Your message is puzzling and I had to do some research and thinking. Burying Benjamin in 1857 in Shirley doesn't make sense. His wife Azuba died in 1839 and was buried in Townsend. Charles Samuel Brown was in Shirley by 1880 but not 1870 and likely buried his parents there. There is no reason for Benjamin to be buried anywhere other than Townsend. The memorial may be a cenotaph. Where is the memorial placed relative to Samuel and Angelia's stone?
