Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been our family's genealogist/historian for over 40 years, and many of these folks I've added to "findagrave" are my family and friends.

Howard Street Cemetery in Northboro, MA is the location of our main family lots, so I have spent many hours there. While there I try to add any grave photos and names of those that appear to be missing from the "findagrave" site. If any of your family are in Howard Street I will gladly turn over management if you wish.

I love to research original settlers for the Tucson, AZ area. Most of the original graves are long gone, including any identifying markers. But the city managed to relocate remains to several different cemeteries in this area, and the stories of many of these pioneers live on. It is my pleasure to merge the stories of the persons with their final resting places.

Maureen Yeaw
Hi Carolyn - I have gotten the Sect/Lot # for Maureen's grave and have claimed your photo request at St. Ann's Cemetery. I will take the photo for you tomorrow.

I am emailing you a copy of her obituary and an article that was in the Providence Journal about her death. So very sad!

Take care, Karen

Caroline and Wm Leslie YAW
Hi Carolyn,

I'm hoping you can help with my question...on both Caroline's and Wm Leslie YAW's Find A Grave Site, the same gravestone appears to be showing. However, they are each listed as being buried in different cemeteries. Is this the case of an "also known as" between these cemeteries or are they truly different ones?

Caroline is Find A Grave # 79118062.

Thank you for your help!

Yeaw / Mathewson (originally Matteson)
Another interesting note: I have started working with some groups in RI helping them ID the recovered(old, some very ancient) stones in many of the earlier burial yards, many listed as not found on RIHCC. RIHCC is updating as the groups recover them.

Some day I wish to be able to go to Scituate and recover the Aaron Matteson (aka Mathewson)and Susan Anne Yeaw homestead/burial location. I'm sure it was very close to Rockland as well near the Yeaw homestead b/c some of their children do show up in Rockland. I do not think the Reservoir records accurately listed all the moved graves, but have not been able to get there to dig into them.

Hi Carolyn! I received your edits for my first cousin 4x removed Mary E (Mathewson) Owen and assume she's related to you as well b/c of 4th Great Grandmother Susan Anne Yeaw.

If you would not mind sending the backup documentation source for the edits via the "Edit" Other" tab, I will precess the updates. Thanks so much!

Geoffrey Joslin/Josselyn 48883949
Hi there!! I'd send an email but it is giving me trouble right now. ALL of the records I've ever seen for him show him the son of Geoffrey Joslin/Josselyn (1375-1424) and Joan Berrie NOT Margaret de Patmer. And it is Geoffrey's (1375-1424) father Ralph that was married to Margaret de Patmer.

It looks like there could be a generational mixup here BUT my information could be completely incorrect as well. Could you maybe point me in the right direction to find out a way to verify this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Carolyn,
I believe I have found John Blakeman's grave in Shrewsbury, however it is not a wall plaque, but a gravestone. If you ar interested I have several photos, including St. Mary's church. I can upload them to the page and also send them to you, if you like.

I would be very interested to see the chapter on the Duke Family in the book you are writing. Can you let me know when the book is published and how I can get one? Thanks, Kaitlyn

William Cummings # 50586005
Hi, you will notice I added a photo of his new marker that was set on 18 March 2016. His last name is spelled "Cummons," and I wanted to tell you the story of this. His great-great-grandson Edward E. Miller, sent for William's military records, and it shows that he signed his name "Cummins" and "Cummings on personal letters." And his military records gave his name as "Cummons." So, Ed consulted his family and decided to have the name on the marker spelled the way it was in the army.
It was a very rainy day, but the local group of Sons of Confederate Veterans and Ed were there, along with some of us cemetery board members, and we got the marker in at the head of William's grave. Finally, after 119 years, he now has his well-deserved marker.

Eugenia Duke
Yes, you may use the photo of Eugenia & Viviano. The children in the photo are Mary Soledad (left) and Virginia, in Eugenia's arms. Frank was their fourth child, born between their third daughter, Estefana, and their fifth child, Oscar, my father. I really wish I could find a family member who has photos of my father's parents and siblings. I have very few, most of them were lost over the years.
