Bio and Links
I have an interest in Maine cemeteries and genealogy. I often walk through cemeteries up the coast in Maine and try to take photos of tombstones that are falling and breaking as it is sad to see. I am willing to share those photos as some descendants may never get a chance to see the actual tombstone. I take many photos of the same tombstone to include closeups and of course am reluctant to get rid of them. If I have taken the photo and you want copies of any other related to the monument and/or tombstone for your personal use just leave me a message so that I can email them to you.

Any photos that I have uploaded may be copied for your personal use only. None of the photos may be placed on another website, sold or bartered or used for commercial purposes.

If you want to use the photos for your personal use genealogy tree please feel free to do so but do not load them on as the tos there states that they can then do what they wish with the photo.

Almost all of the memorials I have entered are a result of "mowing rows" in larger cemeteries and photographing the whole smaller cemeteries.

I am way behind in posting the photos. If you want photos of a memorial I created you can use the request a photo option or you can leave me a message with the memorial names and numbers.

Would you be interested in changing the management of her grave? She is a direct member of my family and I'd like to put her on my find a grave page.
Thank you for posting and taking a photo of her grave. She has been the missing "daughter" until you found her.

Peter Wright #128582400
Would it be possible for you to correct the inscription you transcribed - Peter Wright was 49 yrs old at death, not 19.
I realize the date is hard to read but his his date of death is November 11, 1856.

Achorn family
Actor Will B. Able [memorial #154441269] was born Willard S. Achorn. Possibly he is Willard S. Achorn Jr, but his parents were Willard S. Achorn and Rebecca S. Achorn. Achorn Sr's first wife was Ella Mabel Achorn.

E. Maria Bateman
Thank you for entering the memorials for people buried at Highland Cemetery in Norwood, Massachusetts. Would you do me the great favor of checking your original notes for Memorial #134902901, E. MARIA BATEMAN, to verify her date of death as 1891? I have other documents (Census records, city directories) that seem to indicate that she was alive as late as 1924. She was born in 1860 in Dedham, Massachusetts and married FRANK W. BATEMAN in 1883. I appreciate your help and your continued work in documenting burials in Massachusetts and Maine!

Maria Barrett and Daniel Barrett

Maria (Faherty) Barrett is my 2nd great aunt. I was hoping you might remember where she is buried in Highland Cemetery in Norwood by any chance. I saw you added the memorials for her and her husband Daniel. I bet their kids are buried there too. That's a big cemetery. I'm hoping to go and take a picture.

Thanks from all of us with Maine ancestors!
Thanks so much for your extensive work on Maine cemeteries. Having many Maine ancestors also I am grateful for your work to figure out how we all fit in our larger families.

Happy holidays from a Bristol Bartlett descendant

I wondered if you were the creator of the Job Smith Family Cemetery on FindaGrave?

I've been unable to located this cemetery on any maps. Do you have a specific location for it in Steuben?
