Bio Photo November 3, 2015 ----

I finished my Gardner and surrounding towns database. It centers on Gardner but I included information on the early residents of Templeton, Winchendon, Westminster, and Ashburnham, Massachusetts garnered from the town histories, censuses, and vital records. It is uploaded to and has over 101,000 individuals.


If you do not wish to have a memorial online for your relative then let me know and I will delete it.

I have not cleaned the stones so you might come across a photo of one of your relative's stones and think, "what a mess". If you would like a better picture posted then I can go out and retake it no problem and do a little clearing away of dirt and weeds to boot. I just figured I could get all the photos done in a more timely manner and then make a better effort on the ones people actually are interested in seeing.

I have determined the genealogy of most of the original settlers (see my website below) of Gardner MA. Most of these people are buried in the Old Burial Ground while a few are in Green Bower and Crystal Lake Cemeteries. I have also traced the lineages of their progeny as far as the early 1900s and sometimes further.

I am not originally from this town and so I would be glad to transfer the memorials if you want them. As always, feel free to download any photo I've taken and I'd be glad to do some searching in my area if you can't do it yourself.

'Nuff said. Ed

Duplicate Memorial for Ann Bird Ireland

First, thanks for the good work that you do with Find A Grave.

Second, I am new and easily confused, but I believe Ann Bird Ireland has a duplicate memorial dated after yours. It is # 114396962 and shows as an extra sibling on "your" Ann Bird Ireland memorial # 51774779. Just thought you should know.

Levi MOORE and Parnell PARKER Moore
Hello Ed,

Thank you so much for all the hard work you have put into finding all this information!
I would like to address Levi Moor(e) dob 1759 and his wife Parnell dob 1763.
In researching them, I have come across another user, Leon Christoforo, and his memorials #122940589 and #123035909.
It would appear that you both might have memorials for the same people, with the missing information that each of are looking for. Hopefully the two of you can get in touch and see if these are the same people. Thank you again!

RE: cleaning gravestones
The only ones I would clean would be the ones of my direct ancestors. I've wanted to do it for a long time but have been waiting to be sure not to do damage. Thank you for the information you sent and thanks so much for taking the time to respond.

cleaning gravestones
how do you clean the stones? I've looked on the internet and a weak solution of ammonia is suggested but I'm hesitant to risk it. Do you have any advice for me?

RE: John Averill [70654987]
Thank you for the information. I have lots of very "fluid" names, especially on my father's side!

I believe this is my ancestor. I have his wife's name as Hannah Greenleaf and a son named Ebenezer Averill from old information before I began keeping good source records. I have lots of ancestors in Ashby, and Fitchburg area. Thank you so much for your work.

Hi, I actually bought Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. They are over a hundred years old. I was so excited to actually find the books themselves and see my ancestry.
