Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been a bit obsessed with family history since I was 16, when I inherited my great-grandfather's unfinished projects from the 1890s thru the 1930s. I am 31 now, and with a young family to raise, time escapes me in regards to furthering research -- but I am getting back into it!
Maiden name is Crawford, the Crawfords of Rhode Island. On my father's side, I have from RI Read, Williams, Smith, Ide, Olney, Fitz, Tompkins, and a spate of others, concentrated in Pawtucket / Rehoboth area. Always looking for links there.
Also, Oulton, from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia (my grandmother's family).
My mother's side is Collins (TX,MS,OK), Howard (OK, VA), Burnett (KS), Marek (IA, OK, CZ). I have done much research on these families as well, and have 2 books on the Marek family.
I am a frequent visitor to cemeteries, the older the better. I am on the coast of Maine now, Hancock County, and have photographed many gravestones around here and Washington County. I look forward to adding them to the database, and will gladly take any requests to find graves, as I love nothing more than visiting my 'friends' at the hundreds of cemeteries up here!
I am an expert in finding 'lost' cemeteries, which are located very deep in the woods or isolated areas and no longer have public access.

RE: Hanah Read
You know, I was up in that area last Friday (within 10 miles or so) and if I had my camera, I would have gone and taken that picture for you. I still know exactly where it's located and I'll get it for you one of these days.

RE: Hanah Read
Unfortunately, I'm not from the area, so probably will not be back. I can provide some general directions to make finding it easier so that you can post it and maybe someone else will check it out.

You're welcome and that's what this community is about.

RE: Hanah Read
I added Matilda, but the Hannah I found did not match yours, I added the photo to a Hanna died 1781 which matched. Now looking at my photos, I may have forgotten to photograph the one to the right of Nathan's, it was a long day. So she might be there.

Hanah Read
I do have a photo of a Hanah Read, but I don't believe it's your Hanah. With Nathan was his daughter Matilda Read.

Nathaniel Read
Just posted pic of headstone of Nathaniel Read from Newman Cementery you requested. If this is correct, I'll add more and send you all the originals.

RE: Thank you!
Superkentman is deceased as of last year. You could request a transfer of the pages to you for management.

RE: Thank you!
If you have any more relatives in Cleveland county, McLain County or Canadian county. I will be happy to take pictures for you.

RE: Thank you!
You are very welcome glad I could be of help. I cleaned it up as much as I could. Sometimes the older markers that are flat get overgrown with grass and a lot of dirt.
