Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family is very important to me. Many factors came together which propelled me into the world of genealogy, of which gravestones are a substantial part. One major factor was the house fire that claimed the lives of my 42 year old mom, Marcia Anne Keach and my 9 year old sister, Michelle Abigail Archambeau. After this tragedy I became an Art major. During a photography class at Rivier College I learned that cemeteries are peaceful places to spend an afternoon.

After several turns in the road and a few dead ends I placed my creative talents into beading. I am hopeful that someday I will earn my living with beads and making jewelry. The first beads that I collected were semi precious stones like Rose Quartz, Peridot and Lapis. Stone and wood beads are still my favorite, but they have limitations in how they can be crafted into something. A multi-layered necklace does not hold the same fascination and complexity as bead crochet, which needs very small beads of a certain shape to work right. The expense in the semi-precious stone jewelry is in the material. The expense in other beaded jewelry is the beadwork - the design, the skill and the time.

I have found much in common with beading and genealogy. I have devoted a good deal of my time in honing my crafts.


My KEACH line has lived in the New England area for the early 1700's and possibly before then. It is my quest to find out if the Keach progenitor came from Scotland and whether or not the name, "Keach" was shortened from a spelling varient of the Scottish surname, "MacKeachan".

George Chase
I snapped a photo of George Chase's headstone. I also took photos of the other headstones in the family lot. Also I was looking around at ancestry.com for information on George Chase and I noticed that There is an Isabel Chase listed. What is her relationship to you? I have a couple of photos in my grandfather's album of Belle Chase whose actual first name was Isabel. I need to check my family tree to see how she is related to me but perhaps we have relatives in common.

RE: Charlotte Keach/ Union Cem. N. Smithfield RI
Hi Monica,

I don't think I placed a photo request for Charlotte Keach...
I did some research for a DAR project in this cemetery two years ago, and found what I was looking for. Thanks anyways.

Betsey Simonds
I find yours very interesting since I have been doing my family tree.And I have a Betsey Morrill who married Simonds,but the thing is his name was John Simonds he was born in the year of 1787 in New Hampshire.Now what I also find eerie about this my Betsey Simond was born in 1801 died in 1861.These also had only one child together his name was John W. Simonds born in 1829. So I am just wondering could there be another Betsey Simonds somewhere in your tombstone finding.

Keach- Mrs F Plainville
Hi -
The info is taken from burial records. There may not even be a memorial stone for her.

Hi Monica,
Keach is not a common name on the Cape but I will keep it in mind as I wander around the cemeteries.
Regards,
Kevin

Charlotte Keach/ Union Cem. N. Smithfield RI

Possibly Charlotte Keach may be buried here. I didn't find her gravestone after 4 hours of browsing the cemetery. There is a LINNIE KEACH born 1879 and died 1865 and her husband, Charles MCKAY born 1864,died 1933 at this cemetery. (I took a picture of their stone.) If interested, I will post.
