|Bio and Links|
I've been researching my family for a while. My dad is from the South, my mom from the North. It's been an interesting journey.|
Researching the Drake/Eastman line on my mom's side, and the Earp/Trent line on my dad's side.
ONE THING I'D LIKE TO POINT OUT... WHEN YOU SEE A RECORD THAT HAS THE FIRST NAME 'ER' OR 'ERR', FOR SOME REASON THE NAME TRANSFERRED THAT WAY... IT STANDS FOR 'SENIOR'. IT IS NOT FIRST AND MIDDLE NAME INITIALS.
If I have put up a profile of your relative don't hesitate to ask me to transfer it, it's yours really. I only ask that you don't remove any military information from the profile. I was on a quest to find the veterans buried in Weymouth for the historical society in the past, and had posted whatever I was finding. And don't be afraid to use any photos I have posted for however you need them!
A SPECIAL THANKS TO HAMMER, FOR YOUR HELP AT WEYMOUTH AND HINGHAM.
AND TO TIM AND GRACE FOR BEING MY LEGS AT TOGUS!
And please, please, please.. let me know if your relative from Weymouth is a veteran and I have not marked him/her as so, and I will forward the information... : )

I happened to notice, his will was written July 6, 1811 and his death date on the memorial is Jun 7, 1811.

I've been trying to fulfill as many photo requests as I can for Forest Hills Cemetery, since it is practically in my backyard, but the cemetery office will only look up the plot location of two names for free, charging a prohibitively high fee of $15 for every two names after the first two. Since the Cemetery grounds cover almost 300 acres, we really need to know the specific plot location to have any chance at all of finding it. I do know, however, that by calling the Forest Hills Cemetery office during business hours (617.524.0128) or by sending them an email (email@example.com) other people have been able to get the plot locations for free. If you find out the plot location, I'll be happy to photograph the headstone for you the next time I'm there. If you edit your photo request with this information other photo volunteers will be able to access it as well. Finding out what Path or Avenue they're on would be most helpful.

On your memorial 95344239 for Annie M. Stoddard, you link Henry S. Stoddard as her spouse, but he is her brother. She never married. Thought you might want to know. Thanks!

Yes, I did not mean "inmate" such as an inmate at a Mental Hospital... AMHI was about 8 miles from Togus near Cony Cemetery. I also didn't mean inmate as in a prison inmate... Thomaston (Shawshank ;) is a bit farther south. I only meant it as inmate being a person confined to an institution, such as a prison or hospital... an occupant; tenant; lodger; dweller. Even though they were pretty much confined to Togus, they did get out on furlough. They also had musicians at Togus and several of them are buried there... such as Berthold Thieme.
Nowadays the VA Hospital is at Togus. There are probably many In-patients there... but not like back in the days of the Soldiers Home.
And yes, they do have groundskeepers that keep the "chicklets' nice and clean. Since Maine is the "Red-Headed Step-Child" of Massachusetts, the phone number to call about the cemetery is for Cape Cod. Most of the resorations at the cemteries are contracted out to workers from Massachusetts. They must get some good travel pay ;)

|Tim & Grace||Emil Svenningsen at Togus National Cemetery|
I just posted a gravestone photo of Emil Svenningsen in Section V, East Side, Togus National Cemetery. 99% of the soldiers buried at Togus were inmates of the Eastern Branch of the U.S. National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers and died at Togus in Chelsea, Kennebec County, Maine. There are some exceptions... musicians who played at Togus, at least one wife in Section Q (on the back of her husband's gravestone) and a few who died in the local area while on furlough. The Togus admission records on ancestry .com are very helpful, but they end at 1938.

|Sharon Lavash Hawkins||RE: Porter at Mount Auburn|
LOL Glad that I could get it for you....I think that I must have a mild case of OCD because I can't just fill the requests, I feel compelled to get everyone related in the same area :)

I did not find a gravestone for Charles Porter at Central Burying Ground, Boston, but did find and photograph one for George W. Appleton who died July 4th 1802 aged 3 years and 6 months.
