Hi Trink J,

1) Sorry for butchering your name in the last message...really mistyped that.
2) Thank you so much for letting us use your photo! We really appreciate it and have updated it with the correct info.
3) Here is the web map:
Your photo is used for the Anne & Betty burial site at Dorchester North Burying Ground (formerly Old North burying ground).

Let me know if there are any changes you'd like me to make. Thanks again,

use of Image
Hi Troml K,

We are compiling a list of "African American Freedom Trail Sites" for a project sponsored by Tufts University. One outcome will be a web map of current and historical points of interest. May we use this photo of the “Dorchester North Burying Ground” on this site that you uploaded?

Are you the originial author of this photo? If so, we would obviously credit you.

Abijah Crane's Death Records
I noticed there's conflicting information about where he died. There's a death record on that says he died in Dorchester and another one on that says he died in Medfield.

Abijah Crane
Hi, I found the Annual Report online. If you Google-Cemetery Dept., City of Boston, 1904-1905. you'll find it. See Page 246 for Abijah Crane, age 76 years, 6 months. I copied the wrong age on the memorial.

Abijah Crane
I'm pretty sure my source for Abijah Cranes burial information was "The Annual Report of the City of Boston, 1905-1906." It's no longer available online, so I can't verify the information, but that publication has many more burials listed than are documented by the Historic Burying Ground Initiative. I didn't see a headstone for him at Dorchester North Cem. I noticed that the tombstone inscription at Medfield says (approximately) "Erected In Memory of Abijah Crane and his wife, by their children, which sounds to me like it was erected after both parents had died and I wonder if Abijah is actually buried there. Does Medfield have burial records or just a survey of headstones? Take a look at my memorial for Elizabeth Withington Atherton in Dorchester North Cem. She died December 24, 1765(One my my ancestors, I'm a Withington). She has two headstones. one in Dorchester North Cem. and another in Pearl Street Cemetery that says "In Memory Of....". There's photos there of both headstones. Kathy B

RE: Duckett Family Cem. and Pleasant Hill Cem., Laurens Co., SC
That is definitely fine with me. Would love to see some of your pictures. I had photos of Thomas Duckett and Narcissa Dillard Duckett's graves but can't find them. Do you have those two? By the way, Mary Thomas, descendant of Narcissa and Thomas is the person who took the photos I have quite a few years ago. She sent me copies of all of them to use.

RE: Duckett Family Cem. and Pleasant Hill Cem., Laurens Co., SC
Yes, Trink. The Duckett Family Cemetery was the original name for the Pleasant Hill Cemetery. Those three graves listed as the Old Duckett Cemetery are actually in Pleasant Hill. I had originally posted them in Pleasant Hill many years ago. I don't know why they were removed. Jody

Mary Paul 1675-1752 #35006891
Mary Paul's first husband was Samuel Clap # 20754820. Their daughter Mary Clap #64764732 married Lieut. Thomas Bird #40684121. After Samuel Clap died, Mary Paul Clap married Abiel Bird (1673-1757), so she is buried under the name Mary Bird.

RE: McGurrins at Holy Cross Cem., Bergen Co., NJ
They are there in Blk 7, sec D, gr 165 2 A and 2 B. Different spelling from Esther in the directory if you were looking at it. That's one of the difficulties in finding people there, lol. The cemetery is huge so when I go there I try to do as many in the same block as I can instead of skipping around. The snow is finally melting and I have started back to finding the requests again. There was about 8" of snow there and you couldn't read the names on some of the stones with the snow drifts against them or even walk to the different rows ( listed as tr or tiers). I will put them and their block on my 'priority' list for you. I've been going thru withdrawal these last months, lol. Will let you know soon. Martha

Hope you had a super Christmas. Been away from Find A Grave for a while. Lost 4 family members in 8 weeks and 6 total in 4 months. Was depressing working on cemeteries. We are all fine.

I have worked Southside for years. My entire side of my family is from Brunswick Co, Mecklenburg Co, Lunenburg Co, and Halifax, on top of a few from the other counties. My dad's immediate family is from South Hill and Chase City, Va.

My husband's family is from Southwest Virginia so I work on this area but always work the other if something comes up.

Take Care,

RE: Thanks for Find A Grave Correction: Sallie Scott
Hello Trink,

John Isham Pearcy or Isham Pearcy is my 1st cousin 5x removed. Isham's father Nicholas Pearcy is my 4th great uncle. His brother, Isham Pearcy, is my 4th Great Grandfather. Your Isham was named after my Isham as far as I can tell. I have found it strange that none of the Pearcy sons named one of their sons after themselves. Instead, as far as I've been able to determine their sons where named after their brothers. Someone had your Isham's first name as John on their tree, and I adopted it since Nicholas didn't name any of his sons John and almost all of the cousins named one of their sons John. Plus it was easier to distinguish your Isham from mine.
Though we are distantly related, it is good to meet you cousin! As I have done all of the Pearcy's that I can determine are from John & Anna Margaret Spencer, I would love to include as much of your family as you are willing to share.
My private E-Mail is
Hope to hear from you again!
