|Bio and Links|
In early 2011 following the death of my mother at age 95, as I was cleaning out drawers and boxes, I came across scads of family genealogy information and photos that had been accumulated by my father and maternal grandparents over the years. Since that time, I have become obsessed with continuing to trace my family's lineage in the hopes of passing the information down to my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.|
When I became stuck trying to find the death location of one of my second great grandfathers, Josephus Morgan, I found it on Find A Grave. I was so impressed with this website and the volunteer who had taken photos of his grave, I decided to become a volunteer and give something back to what I had been given. While I signed up to volunteer earlier in 2012, it is only in June that I have taken the plunge and claimed/fulfilled my first missions. I have been bitten by the bug, and hope to complete many more. My wife Marsha has joined me in helping to find sites and trimming the grass and sweeping the leaves off markers. I will be happy to transfer management of memorials I have created to any relative.

|oldwolf600||Memorial Wreath Ceremony - Augusta|
Did you see last Saturday's Kennebec Journal. There will be a ceremony honoring fallen officers and an open house at APD directly after. I believe it starts at 4:30 P.M. I thought perhaps you and your wife would like to attend the events.
I did the best I could w/enlarging the photo. I had to do the math on her age @ the end...and that's ALWAYS if-y for me. You might want to double check me. But the last was her age in years, days, months.
PS - I'll do the best I can w/that inscription and add it to the caption.
|Diana Bray||Photos I've taken|
Please feel free to use anything I've contributed to the findagrave website. That's why I've added them...for others to use. I enjoy the hunt! And, thank you for your kind words.

Thank you so much for these photos. They are a great help to my research of the Bugbee family and I really appreciate your time and effort. - Allison Clausen
|Tom Towle||RE: Dolly Whitney|
I am also descended through Joseph Washburn from Francis Cooke and through his wife Hannah Latham from James Chilton. Their daughter Rebecca married David Johnson and the grandmother of my grandmother, Sarah Johnson, was the granddaughter of Rebecca's grandson Ziba Johnson.
You are not only welcome to use any of our photos or information, you are welcome to access my Ancestor.com family tree and use anything you find there.
|Tom Towle||Dolly Whitney|
Asa Holden and wife Dolly Whitney were my 3rd great-grandparents. Their son Calvin is buried in Westminster Cemetery along with Dolly Whitney. I am a certified Mayflower Descendant through Dolly Whitney from Richard Warren, as I believe you may be if you descend from Dolly's brother or sister.

Were you able to get back to the cemetery for a photo for Melinda? Her stone is to the right and slightly further back inthe same lot - it has a lamb on top.
|Ed Poulin||Dolly Whitney - 87220329|
The marriage certificate was posted by another contributor to show Calvin Holden was the son of Dolly. Unfortunately, the Dolly he meant to attach it to is the one you have just created (120801622). I'll create Calvin's memorial and I'll ping him to see if he'll move it to Calvin's. Would you happen to know where Calvin was buried?
Also, can you link your new Dolly to Joshua (32398162) and Vashti (79779321)? Thanks.
|Randy Severance||RE: Knight Cemetery#3|
Done. And thank you again Peter. Good Luck!
