Bio Photo I was born & grew up in Massachusetts and have been interested in genealogy since I was in my 20s. In my searches, I often took pictures of headstones and am glad that I can share them with others on findagrave.

RE: Fyffe unknown, Lowell Cemetery #42047808
I updated the memorial from unknown to Natalie. If you want to go ahead and add David just let me know when its done and I will then add a copy of my photo to it. or I can add him too. Either way just let me know so I can add the photo when its done. Denise.

RE: Fyffe unknown, Lowell Cemetery #42047808
Honestly I do not know. This headstone was in front of a large shrub and I could not see or get to the back of it. You could try calling the Lowell Cemetery office and ask for the plot location. (this one was in the Range area) The people in the office are very nice. Since you have their names, birth and death dates I'm sure it wouldnt be a problem for them to look it up.

There number is (978)454-5191 or email

George Hunt Memorial
Hi, have transferred to you, it appears everyone on this site is related. Captain Caswell was married to George's sister.

I am always happy to transfer regardless of Find A Grave guidelines, also please feel free to use the pictures of the site as you deem fit.

I do this strictly for the joy of helping others find relatives and not to have a power trip by possessing ones family or friends.

RE: John Cheney # 88406487
I took photos of the Cheney stones in Rural Cemetery and posted them to I also connected Phebe, Mercy, Sarah, David J. and William P. to John. I only put dates when the VR showed a birth or death, so if you find any more, I can transfer them to you or make corrections for you. Enjoy!

I'll try to get there this afternoon before it rains. I live about a mile from the cemetery, so it's not hard.

John Cheney # 88406487
John is buried in Rural Cemetery in West Newbury, Essex county, Massachusetts, not in "West Newbury No. 2". You can confirm this by checking the WN vital records book (G.R.4, which refers to Rural Cemetery). He is buried there with his wife, Phebe, and his children Mercy and Sarah. His son David is buries nearby in that cemetery. I have checked West Newbury cemeteries extensively, and I can post a gravestone picture for you if you'd like. Would you correct his cemetery? Thank you.

I am researching my husband's family. I am doing this completely blind, as we have no family to ask any questions. I have a scrapbook that we believe his g-g-g grandmother made, and at the very back is a photo of her and some headstones. I have a hunch that these are her parents and grandparents. Unfortunately, as you know, this family seems to reuse names quite a bit so I do not know if I am correct in my hunch. The headstones photos are of Stephen P Cheney Sr and Jr, William B. and Marcellina J Cheney, and the one that my husband's g-g-g grandmother is standing next to is Elizabeth, wife of Odber Porter (so I believe that is Stephen Cheney Sr. and Elizabeth Burpee's daughter, but this is where I am not sure.) It stands to reason that she would be standing next to her mother's grave, as her name is also Elizabeth (Hannah Elizabeth Porter was her name...and it appears that she was born the same year Elizabeth Cheney Porter died..) Wondering if you can help. Drop me a line if you can! Thanks!
