Thanks for the Saint comment!

Fancy meeting you here; I remember you from Northeastern.
Made the fixes to the memorial. Would you like me to transfer him to you, since he's an ancestor?

re: Memorial# 80810081
I added the family linkages as suggested. I may or may not have told you that I documented (and enjoyed doing so) the entire old part of Highland Cemetery (formerly known as old north burying ground until being merged with other cemeteries as Highland by the town) for 8 months in 2011. It took a looong time. I am pretty sure I did not miss a gravestone (when I go back to start where I left off last I always re-take the photo just in case if I am unsure). If the other related family graves are there in the burying ground, there is a good possibility that the stones are either 1-just a stump of it's old self 2-never existed which was/is very common to have memorial-less internments, are now gone/destroyed completely or are currently illegible. BUT... hopefully I missed some gravestones and they are still there. LOL!!

I have revised her memorial as requested. I see what you mean about her inscription. It looks like a chip on the face of her gravestone to me. Just be glad the gravestone is still standing. LOL!

Would you like me to transfer this entire plot to you since they're your direct ancestors? I don't mind taking care of it but you would obviously know more about them than I.
|Carol Bestick||Raymond McEachern|
Moved him to the cemetery you sent
|Carey Rodd||Bradford, N.H. McNabs|
Transferred to you. A warning about the birth dates which are listed as January 1: when the data was first entered into a digital file many years ago apparently the program did not allow blanks so the person who took down the data put January 1 as the default date. That is why so many people in Bradford were born or died on Jan 1. Maybe you can put the correct info in now that you are the administrator. Let me know if you find the correct dates so I can update our files. I looked in the burial permit files and there was no more info there either. Thanks.
I transferred Josephine and Vincent Ziolkowski to you. Take care!
Didn't know you were interested in climbing family trees. Been following you from Ocean Spray to Polaroid, but then lost track. Look's like you're now with Trane.
I work for GE Aviation (Grand Rapids), and in a recent phone call with Sikorsky, I believe it was a "Charlie Brady" asked if I knew you.
I've been dabbling for the past 15-20 years, trying to connect the "Colcord Genealogy (1907)" book with current generation. Slowed down to a crawl, since I can't seem to retire.
I see a brief link to the UK in your "Find-A-Grave" trail. Would you happen to have information confirming roots for Edward in England prior to 1630's. The best reference I have indicates he had a connection to St. Michaels at Ormsby, Norfolk, England, with father also named Edward, and a brother Richard Colcord. Wife "Anne" apparently also originated from this area.
The book mentions he came from Hants, England (the mouth of the Teign River). I've been to Bovey Tracey but had no success locating connections.
No rush. I'm just interested in casual dialoguing.
