We respectfully request permission to use the cemetery sign photo in our online tree with credit. Marie has a cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition.
Thanks for your consideration.

|Anthony Buscemi||Asa and Orilla Magoon graves|
I just wanted to comment on this grave... I have seen graves for Asa and Orilla Magoon in a small, secluded cemetery in Sandwich, NH. It's called the Levi Smith Cemetery. I believe the actual burial sites for these individuals would be there. Is is possible the stone in Bean Cemetery is for memorial only even though the remains aren't actually buried there?
|Jean McLean||Hannah Trafton Hanson|
Thank-you Bruce for updating Hanna's maiden name from Seward to Trafton.
|Jean McLean||Hannah ?Seward? Hanson|
Please note that Hannah was a Trafton as verified by the attached will. Thank-you Jean McLean

I am just wondering why I can't get you to make any of the changes I have requested, linking families together and giving full names and dates?

Hello Bruce, Thank you for your work in this cemetery. We noticed one posting error that we were hoping you could correct. Grace D. Rollins Dow, 11581689, has the picture of her husband's parents posted to her memorial. The correct picture for her is posted to her husband's memorial, Percy C. Dow, 11581684. Could you remove the incorrect picture and replace it with the one from Percy's memorial? Thanks! Bill and April
|Scott Connor Barnard||Bean Cemetery|
