Helping to preserve, helping to remember. It's saying, they mattered. It is respecting and taking care of each other. |
I like to learn about the person I am recording if I can. I care about who they were and it gives life to their stone.
A few have just drawn me in for one reason or the other, and I feel the need to put their story together. I don't want them to be forgotten.
One of these such people is Hannah M. Mitchell. I found her roaming the Webster Cemetery in Freeport. She has a very unique stone, I took a photo of it, and it kept drawing me in.
Hannah M. Ring I came to find, was only 25 years old when she died, about a month after her child Oscar was born. Sadly, within that same year, Hannah's husband Sylvanus Mitchell dies at Fort Carroll, D.C. of Typhoid Fever. He was a Corporal in Co. E 17th Maine Volunteers. As Oscar is now left with no parents, Sylvanus's sister Maria gets guardianship of Oscar. She also dies, unwed, when Oscar is only about age 18.
Yes, there is a story behind each stone...
In regards to the use of my photos, as long as I am given credit, you are welcome to use them.
I will always link, make corrections, add information for people. Just let me know and I will do it as able.

You are quite welcome. It is people like you that will make this a "Very Famous Website." Your friend, Stuart P.S Thank you for all the time you have spent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|Ben G||RE: Dahms|
You're welcome. And just so you know, the Smithson and Dahms plots are only about 100 feet apart, although in different sections of the cemetery.

|Lauren Marie Westgate Hargrave||Thank you!|
Thank you so much for the photo and info for Kenneth Franklin Braley. I really appreciate all your help and time!
Thank you so much for photographing my 4th great-grandfather Levi Eveleth's grave! Wonderful pictures. I had no idea that Eveleth was a family surname until very recently; I only knew it to be a middle name as it was passed down to more recent generations then.

I sure am, keep the edits coming. I think it is great to have as much info as possible for anyone that looks at the memorial.

Thanks for catching my duplicate.
I have not tried the stone rubbing yet, however I did get the materials I needed last week. Not sure when I will get to try it, but when I do I will let you know.

It is nice to see someone is taking the time to fix the stones.

No the photo do not look to much alike. Look like someone may have tried to clean it. I know sometime different lighting helps with a better photo.
