Bio Photo Every marker has a story to tell; sometimes I can be its voice

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt.

I don't estimate birth years. The relatives of the dearly departed not only could get the date of death wrong on the monument but the age at death. Too many people take anything they find on the Internet as gospel, and I will not contribute to that bad habit.

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship. I will not transfer out of guidelines. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. Use the edit system. Too many people have requested out-of-guidelines transfers and then never added so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.

I WILL NOT link to a "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.

If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.

My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.

Sources for additional memorial information include:
Suggest A Correction, NEHGS,,, NARA, other on-line sources, personal library, obituaries, newspaper items, etc.

Presenter of Betty Allen Chapter DAR and Friends of Lilly Library sponsored "Celestial Residents Walking Tours": Bridge Street Cemetery (Northampton), Park Street Cemetery (Florence), Spring Grove Cemetery (Florence), West Farms Cemetery (Florence) and a virtual tour of "The Celestial Residents of Chesterfield".

PETER TOWER - Duplicates
I have been going over my research on my ancestors of TOWER, LOVELL & others connected and see that there are two memorials for same Peter Tower created by you , one of them now maintained by Carol Mack. Peter Tower #55579397 is the same as # 55579323.

You also created # 55579236 for Mary Tower, I have info to fill in on her; she was the 2nd wife of Peter, 1729 - 1814.
He had a 3rd wife I have not yet looked for but will after I work on wife #2- Mary.

When I began research in 1985 we had no internet, etc. which meant we all had to work harder to find our ancestral lines, but worth it. Paying off big time now!

RE:Martin Flagg

Thanks for taking a picture of Martin Flagg's government issued headstone. It may seem like a small thing to many, but it's deeply appreciated by me
Martin's wife's maiden name was corrected to Shearn in the biography.

The house…
I see you just added a fascinating house to Noah Parsons (son of Noah and Mindwell) Bridge Street Find-a-Grave memorial. Could you say a little more about what connection this house has to Noah Parsons?? Perhaps I should assume that he lived in it? Or Noah and Mindwell? I'd like to know!
