Hi Ben,
Just a short note to let you know that I really appreciate your taking the time to find the Lambert Plot. Even though it turned out there are no tombstones there, I think it is important to acknowledge their presence.

I called Evergreen yesterday, because I was trying to find out if Zaccheus' parents were in the lot. Unfortunately they are not there. But I did discover that there is a baby son (b. 4/8/1894, d. 9/25,1894)in the lot. His name is William O. Lambert and I have created a memorial for him. Would you please copy your photo of the lot and put it on William's Memorial #179391553?
Thank you so much for all your help.

Re: other markers. That helps because it answered my question. I know to keep "digging."

Thank you for the pictures of their headstone - was pleased to see Clovis' name on the headstone and added a memorial for her - Would you attach your pictures to that memorial or I'd be happy to do so for you?

I have 3 Galen Harris' in my tree and have yet to figure out how Winefred/Winafred fits in. Please let me know when/if you post Galen's so I can put it in my tree.
You are such a big help. Thank you again. See the Mohr Family Tree.

Hi Ben,
Thanks for getting photos of the Civil War section for me! Too bad he didn't get an individual marker. Free, so I wonder why not. I was out filling photo requests today, so I really appreciate your time and effort!

RE: Henry Hill, Windham, Maine
I'm not 100% sure. But his parents are also buried in this cemetery (Edith and Herbert) so it could potentially be near them. I'm not sure if they had a big enough family plot, or if they'd planned that far. He actually died a year before his father, so it's hard to say.

Hi Ben,
I am very impressed with your hard work. Thank you so much from one findagrave member to another! These are old stones or sites and are such a monument.
thanks so much for trying.

Edit requests
You had placed an edit to link Elizabeth Zouche, to her mother, and that memorial is an unknown memorial, strictly against Findagrave policy. Apologies, as my profile states, I do not link to memorials added against policy.

Christopher Willoughby is already linked to his father, the memorial you suggest is also an unknown and a duplicate, which will be deleted. His mother and wife are also unknowns memorials. Again, please accept my apologies.

RE: Benjamin Gross - Quabbin
So do you now who his parents are???

RE: Benjamin Gross - Quabbin
Hi Ben,

What I can tell you after looking at the plots within gravesite 113 is that Benjamin F. Gross who is listed to be in plot 10 should be right next to Elizabeth Dyer Gross (plot 11) or very nearby. She is buried next to her husband, Capt. Macah Gross (plot 12). I took a photo of these gravestones individually and together, so if you look at the together one...Benjamin should be to the left as you look at the pic. They surely couldn't be his parents, since he died in March of 1839 at 5 yrs/5 mos, so I'm not sure why he's there - do you know who his parents were.

Go on and look up Capt Micah Gross to see the pics I took. If you want me to add those pics to Ben F, let me know.

My educated guess is that he may be the son of Sarah Lamb Gross (plot 5) & the Capt's son, also Micah Gross (plot 4). I've posted pics of their graves on as well.

Now that I've figured out about where he should be, I'll go back over to Quabbin (short drive of 5-10 mins) some afternoon & look again. Gravesite 112 also has Gross family members, some of whom married Eddy's & I've taken pics of that site as well. see 'Sarah C Gross Eddy'.

I got the plot #s from Ancestry in the Quabbin Park records & while I was there I hunted to learn more about Ben F, but found nothing...seems odd since he lived to be 5.

Most of my photography work is at Quabbin Park since I've always been fascinated with the story of the towns being flooded & folks being dug up and re-interred in 1933 before the reservoir was filled. Sometimes I simply take pics of interesting stones & try to fill in information from Ancestry.

I will let you know what I find after going back to the cemetery.

RE: Grosses
What I find interesting is that Clement is not named in any ancestors that I have found, and that is unusual. Isaac and Edmund are named quite frequently in the ancestry lines.

Hi, We are also from Ebenezer. Our line is 1. Simon c-1650 Hingham, MA; 2. Micah 1676 Hingham to Truro, MA; 3. Ebenezer 1713 Truro, MA, 4. Ebenezer 1737 Truro, MA to Orland, ME; 5. John 1766, Truro, MA to Orland, ME; 6. Edward Trueworthy 1796 Orland, ME;
7. Amos Treat 1832 Bucksport, ME; 8. Alexis Edward 1875 Frankfort, ME; 9. Lloyd Osborne 1908 Belfast, ME; 10. myself b. Camden, ME. Now living in Connecticut. Many say Simon was son of Clement but there is no proof of his birth. That is my brick wall. Do you have any more info than I do?
