Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I have been working on the various families in my family tree for about 10 years. The main names in my lineage are Coombs, Perry, Clifford, Varney, Sprague, Drummond, Ross, and McLafferty - all from Maine or descendants from Scotland, Ireland, and England. I travel to Maine quite often when working on my tree, and the genealogy bug has bitten me. I try to take photos wherever I go and am quite happy to fill all the requests I can. I love being a volunteer for this site and having the chance to meet other people also working on their trees or volunteering their time.

Alfred Lowell grave stone
Thank you Kara for posting the picture of Alfred J. and Eliza Lowell's gravestone. Eliza's full name is Eliza Marie Crockett daughter of Lemuel and Abigail (Wight)Crockett. Alfred's middle name is Johnson and he is the son of Bartlett Richard & Rebecca (Johnson) Lowell. They were my gr. gr. grandparents and I descend through their daughter Jennie Rebecca Lowell that married Charles Daggett.....

I have connected Alfred and Eliza Lowell's gravestone onto Jennie Rebecca Lowell's find a grave. She is #135259883 and is buried at Beechbrook Cemetery in Gloucester, MA.

Thank you so much for doing this.

Kirk Purington Sr
Capt. Robert H. Purington
Hi Kara, My name is Kirk Purington Sr and I live in Dover, New Hampshire. I came across the photo you took of the headstone of Capt. Robert Harrington Purington, and his wife Mary Jane. I have a couple of questions, 1) Are you related to the Puringtons in some way? 2) In what cementery did you get this photo, and where in Maine? 3) Were there any other Purington's in the Cemetery, and lastly, If you are not related, could you transfer this memorial of Robert & Mary to me? Capt Robert is my 3rd great grandfather.

If you are related and need any information, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks very much, Kirk

Ross family in Rangeley
I tried to make the corrections you suggested, you'll need to check to see if I got them all correct. I wondered why you have added photos for all the stones in the Schoolhouse cemetery as they already had photos that looked good to me?

Chesley Cemetery
Good Morning,
Sorry on the directions to the Chesley Cemetery on Merry Hill Rd...AT BARRINGTON town line, Looks like Picture. Swaine Pond turn of real close on right.
This comes off Rt 4 in Nottingham, at the top of the hill, on the L if going toward Lee Circle.
From Northwood line, aprox 2 1/2 miles, was the first left. From Northwood you have 152 at the line, Garland Rd, ( more of James' family buried here at Old North) Gebig Rd, (a "t" rd) all on the right.then Marry Hill on Left.
When I was home in 2006,from town line, there were 4 houses on left, curve a burned out old place, True W Chesley home in early 1900's, another old farm, Charles H Chesley home,1900's, burned in 1952,lived here, George home across the rd, 1/4 mile, Joseph Chesley home,1800's , burned in 70's, Jonathan Chesley home, across from Gebig Rd., Than Jacob's Chesley's home at the corner of Marry Hill RD. All on the left and at one time called Chesley Villiage by the family, All son's or Grandsons of James and Elizabeth.
True was my GGrand, Charles my Grand.
On Garland Rd at the Cemetery on the Left foot of hill there are many Chesley's, I have 6 Generations there.
The empty graves at Merry Hill Rd were moved to Old North in the 20's and 30's.
At the East end at Northwood, are burried the family of Joshua Rollins Chesley and wife Mary Elizabeth Swain, large stone, about mid way.
Joshua's home, Northwood, at the corner of 4/202/9 across from church, was big red building and called Potters corner. My GGGrand.
