Photos I take belong to the people who ask for them. You are free to do whatever you wish to with them. I ask that they not be published on pay-to-view sites.
I want to thank everyone who has stepped up and offered corrections or taken transfers for the cemeteries I've been working, it's been a rewarding experience.
I am in the process of visiting all of Danvers cemeteries and ensuring they are fully catalogued. I am only posting fresh photos when I think mine are better or show something different. If you object, drop me a line and we can chat.
I do take breaks and handle occasional photo requests - if you have a location, that makes it a lot more tempting. It's a challenge to walk a large cemetery looking for two headstones and then have 4 more requests for the same cemetery a week later.
I trim my messages and only leave those that I need to do something about - I'm not hating you, just trying to use the messages to advantage. (Although I think I will keep the message from Billie forever - such an inspiration)
Complete: (There is some discrepancy in the numbering between MACRIS and FaG - adopting the FaG numbering as it comes up)
GR1 Wadsworth - added some 400 memorials and photos.
GR2 Nurse (checked - was complete)
GR3 Endicott (checked - was complete)
GR4 Preston (tucked away behind Putnam - added a few
GR5 Prince (catalogued and photographed)
GR6 Putnam (catalogued and photographed)
GR7 Leech/East Danvers (checked - was complete)
GR8 Porters Burying Ground (High street - added a few)
GR11 Buxton/Goodale (checked - was complete)
GR13 Hutchinson (catalogued and photographed)
GR14 Old Settlers - (Photographed)
GR15 Putnamville (checked - was complete)
GR16 Swin(n)erton (checked - was complete)
GR18 Russell (checked - added a few missing ones)
GR9 Holten - fair sized
Completely photographed. need to file and/or clean up ~300 photos. ~1200 added to date.
Some of the photos are less than optimal. I've noted many of them to re-take, I trust I don't miss any - let me know if you find a horrible one that should be re-taken.
GR19 St Mary Sylvan St - moderate size, but Catholic, so every headstone has 20 names.
GR22 Xavierian (waiting for SJP to file obits to add remaining 200+ photos) - perhaps a student project?
GR12 Anshe Sfard - there are about 10 cemeteries back in those woods
GR17 Walnut Grove - Huge
GR23 Annunciation - Large
Defunct - exist in records, but not on the ground.
GR?? Israel Hutchinson (just a marker)
GR20 Potter's field (off Adams street)
GR21 Danvers State Hospital - no headstones, just a plaque.
GR24 Porter Cemetery (off locust street, near Connors farm) - Although I have seen recent clues as to a cemetery near here - it still evades me.
GR25 Pedricks Cemetery (off locust street, near Connors farm)
XX Putnam (off Sylvan street, bodies moved to Porter's ca. 1920)

|Bob LaBelle||RE: Hartman's In Holten Cemetery|
There are two Thomas Hartman's, the larger stone is the father, the small one, the son. I think there are other stones in that plot, it is a good size plot. I think that Charlotte Hartman (Thomas', the father, wife) and Caroline, there daughter is there (see never married). The Ferris/Hartman plot is also large. To the left and stating slightly to the rear of the main stone there are ground markers for Elizabeth J 1849-1925 and one for her husband Charles Hartman, for Ernest A. Hartman and for Hervie I. Hartman (son's of Charles and Elizabeth). To the right of the main stone and slightly closer to the street is a stone for Charles and Nellie Hartman (Charles is also a son of Charles and Elizabeth). Most of the ground stones are perpendicular to the Ferris/Hartman stone and a few stones have sunk down, in particular, Hervie and Charles E. and Nellie Hartman.
|Bob LaBelle||Hartman's In Holten Cemetery|
According to the Mass Vital's Albert and his wife are buried in Holten Cemetery. I do not know where the grave is but I suspect it is in the plot where Thomas Hartman Sr.'s memorial stands. The plot is rather large, down the first road and on the left on far from the corner. It has a old planter in the middle of it. there are only a few stones showing. I believe Thomas' wife, Charlotte is also in the plot and that most of the stones have been covered over. My other Hartman's are near the road. If you are at Thomas' stone and head straigh for the road, you will see a group of trees and bushes, on the street side of the bushes, you will find a stone with the name "Ferris/Hartman" on it. This is the plot were most of my Hartman's are buried in. There is Charles and Elizabeth (Welch) Hartman, my gr-gr-grandparents, or on the left side of the stone if you are facing the stone. (Charles is the son of Thomas), Charles and Nellie (Margaret Ellen Russell) Hartman are the the right of the stone (he is the son of Charles) and Myrtle and Chester Ferris (she is the daughter of Charles II). Most of them have flat stones at ground level. You found Albert's daughter, Mabel Mortimer, nice picture. Other relatives in there are the Needham's, Shaw's and Russell's.
|Martha Story Foisy||Alice and Leslie Durgin|
Perhaps Alice and her husband have no stone. Both their death certs have Holten Cemetery listed as their burial location.
Can't wait to see your new Durgin listings!
|B Dearborn||RE: Betsey Dissmore|
I can't thank you enough for sending me the large photo of the stone and putting it up transcribed on Betsey's memorial.
They had so little time together and this poem really shows the love he had for her.
Thomas Dissmore is a 3rd great-grandfather on my father's side. As you discovered, Betsey was his first wife, and after her death he went on and married twice more...sisters Mary Reynolds and after her death, Abigail Reynolds. My line comes down through Thomas and Mary's son, Reverand George Pickering Dissmore.
Thanks again for the full inscription. I'm sure many people will appreciate being able to read it.
|Janneane Veger||Calvin Newton grave|
In my photograph, the gray marker on the ground does NOT match the white base. They also are of slightly different thicknesses, and the fractured edges would never align properly. The marker says Hudkins, but according to cemetery records, the base is on Calvin Newton's grave site. I did not find any markers engraved with Calvin's name.
|Charles & Wayne Holmes||Otsego County Cemetery Records|
The list I use is ( http://theusgenweb.org/ny/otsego/cemetery/cemetery.htm )
These lists are compiled by volunteers, much like Find A Grave, and are not always complete nor accurate. I have found they agree with the actual memorial stones in almost every case and usually trust them.
I quickly looked at the 1800 and 1810 census lists for Worcester and Decatur and found: 1800 elija parker, james parker,stiles parker, phineas parker, and timothy parker. 1810 - t. parker, o. parker, and j. c. parker.
I have theses censuses in Word format if you want them - give me an email.
PS - if you have any pics or know the location of the cemetery where some Goodwin family members are, I would appreciate them. I am looking for a Charles M. and Carrie F. Goodwin and their children, specifically Lottie L. Goodwin or Rivington S. Goodwin. Also a Mary Tuttle would probably be buried next to them as well.

|Dickc49||RE: One more thing|
Thanks Jack. I've been to city hall, and not knowing the death date, makes searching almost impossible. He appears to have gone to California, and she just disappeared. I do have a list of ALL Poor's in Monumental Cemetery if that would be helpful to you. I got it at the cemetery department which is at Cedar Grove Cemetery off of Lynn St in Peabody. I can send you a PDF copy if you would like.

|Kathy Krysiak||Andrzejewski location|
I was looking at the cemetery map. It was up on this hill of section 6 or section 11 I believe. It's definitely up a hill close to some woods and in a section with all sizes and types of stone. It is a concrete cross so it sort of stood out so I noticed it.
