RE: Rebecca Parmenter King and Daniel King
Glad you are pleased with seeing the repaired stones. I thought it interesting that you can see the parts of the stones that have been exposed to the weather have blackened and the parts that were buried and where the broken part was blocking the bottom is still white.

I cannot add a daughter to the parent memorial. Parent / Child links are done from the child's memorial. You add the parents to the child the same way you add a spouse link. She will then appear on the parent's memorial as their child and on the sibling's memorials in the sibling section.

I grew up in Rutland, and this year I made that cemetery a project. I got started on Find A Grave when I was bringing my Dad to church every Saturday evening after he could no longer drive. While he was in church I went to Old Burial Ground in Rutland and took photos. The research for these families is pretty easy using Family Search and the Early Vital Records of Massachusetts web site that has images of the Massachusetts "tan books" online. And the same names keep showing up and intermarrying.

RE: Rebecca Parmenter King and Daniel King
Hi Mary, I have a little Christmas surprise for you! I was in Rutland today and the Thanksgiving snow has given way to December rain so I stopped at the cemetery to get GPS coordinates on the King graves. I thought that might help with location when you start the process of getting them repaired. Check out the memorials and you will find the same surprise that I did.

Happy Holidays!

RE: Rebecca Parmenter King and Daniel King
The phone number for Rutland Rural Cemetery is 508-886-6680. They may be able to recommend a company that works in the cemetery often.

You can try Rex Monuments
I have never worked directly with them as my parent's marker was set in place preneed but I know they have been in business for a long time.

Empire Granite is another company in the area I have heard of but never worked with

I would start with the cemetery. When I started photographing in March this year there were a few stones that were broken or tipped over. Later in the summer the broken stone was repaired and the tipped over stone set back onto it's base. These were very old monuments and I doubt that it was relatives who ordered the work, but I don't know that for a fact. Look at the two memorials in that cemetery for Sanderson - the photos show the broken stones - that one is now repaired - there was also an obelisk for the Reeds, but I haven't entered memorials yet because it is too difficult to read. I will have to go back when the light is better, or when I can use foil to bring up the engraving.

Good Luck - If you have them repaired and want photos, contact me - I will be happy to do new photos for you.

In all cemeteries in New Hampshire, we're loaded with snow. Someone will take care of this in spring or summer!

RE: Simpsons
When my Cooper family left New York, they settled in Black Hammer, MN where Sarah Cooper married Alexander Simpson. I am still trying to find Sarah Cooper's father's, William Edward Cooper, grave site. Another contributor placed his memorial in Sheldon, but I have some doubts about that. Her mother, also named Sarah Cooper, is buried in Sheldon, but her father remarried and may be buried elsewhere with his second wife, a Norwegian woman. Do you have any idea where someone who lived and died in Black Hammer may be buried if not in Sheldon? Are there many cemeteries around Black Hammer? Thank you for your help.
