|Bio and Links|
I am of Acadian (French from what is now Nova Scotia), Irish and Italian ancestry, and my husband is of French-Canadian and Eastern European Jewish ancestry.|
Our Canadian ancestors came to New England in the late 19th and early 20th century, to work in the mill towns of Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
I LOVE the early New England gravestone art! But my main focus for genealogy is with our Canadian immigrant ancestors.
For many years, I maintained a web site for my family's genealogy, the Saulnier Genealogy site, but financial constraints forced me to close it down. Now I'm entering my research, bit by bit, on wikitree.com - which is just a really nice site with very responsive management! Check them out on Facebook, too. :-)
I love an excuse to go puttering around local cemeteries, taking photos. Hope I can continue to add listings and photos here for many years to come!

I want to thank you for photographing Morton and Sarah Adams memorials at Pine Grove Cemetery and adding them to the Find a Grave web site. I truly owe you a debt of gratitude for your efforts on this.
Very respectfully, Marie

I do not know a lot about the Quaker religion as it did not come down through the generations. I have found some info from the Cemeteries they are buried in. Some in Mendon Mass, in Rhode Island and in the Quaker Cemetery in Orchard Park NY and other places. Some do not have tombstones but many do. If you notice they are simple stones, no fancy cravings and monuments. I have never heard of one on the ground except for a fallen stone. I believe JA is Joanna. What other initials due you have. I also forgot to request one for I believe it was Daniel Wheeler. We are missing five stones from the entries in the Cemetery. Many of the people who I believe are Quakers are buried in Prospect Hill Cemetery, Inman Cemetery etc. If you give me the initial I will try to id them. Your friend maybe connected with my relations. The same names appear in the different cemeteries. Maybe together we can solve the problems. The tombstone laying down might be In good shape as it is protected against wind and rain. These stone were usually made of soft stone. Let me know what you decide.

Thank you and your husband for finding my lost tombstones. I believe this might have been a family cemetery as the last names intermingled.
I had forgotten about the tombstone that was down.
I could not lift it and it was fall when I was there so you are right about the leaves. I like to locate the stones as they confirm many details by date and who the are buried next to. I can not relate how much you and your husband help means to me. Together we did do a good job.

The other thought I had was they maybe at the end of a row and as turned the next row was shorter or longer and I missed the stones. I never depended on one source of info but like to check info as much as I can. Thanks again and hope you have some luck locating them

I found a list of burials in this cemetery and many of the people were ancestors of mine. I was there on vacation and took as many photos and saw other stone there I did not know were in the cemetery. When I got home I found I did not have everyone I entered and feel that I might have missed some. I believe names were on the back of other stones and I did not look closely Would appreciate your help as I will probably not be in that area anytime soon. I parked down the street and walked to the cemetery. It was easier as I believe the entry was right on a corner. If you cannot help me I will understand. Thank you for your time.

You're welcome! I'm happy to have been able to help. If you ever visit, as you enter, their monument is in the very last row on the very left end of the cemetery.

I would like to know if you have a photo of the stone at St. Augustine cemetery in Manchester.....there is nothing posted. How did you know her grave was there? Doing research on this family. Thank you!
