Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy for many years and in researching have found myself in many different cemeteries and have fallen in love with them. They have so many stories to tell, some happy and some not so. And as the years pass and the old stones are getting more and more worn and hard to read I am so glad to know so many are trying to preserve them by taking photos and transcribing the stones and getting them up on findagrave. What a wonderful place this is with so many hard working contributors.

It is not necessary to "own" a memorial to make changes. I try to make all edits, corrections and links in a timely manner. Please use the edit tab for this purpose.

Please remember to check your edits at the top right of your profile page.

Samuel G Cash
I am trying desperately to piece together the family of Samuel G Cash, Find A Grave Memorial# 117805912, who is buried in South Harrison Cemetery in Harrison, Maine. He and his small family lived in Harrison all of his adult life.

His wife Ann died sometime between 1880 and 1900. She was born in about 1826. No Maine death record is online. I did add her to Find A Grave, #167276361, but I sure would like confirmation that she is buried in this cemetery and with her husband. And if she does have a gravestone to have a photo of it.

Any chance you can help me solve this mystery? Thank you for any assistance you can throw my way.

Hello Janice, I would dearly love to maintain the memorials for Rollo A. Morton #92660995 and Mary E. White Morton #92661116, they are my great grandparents. My great grandfather was in the life saving service, which later became the coast guard. He was a light house keeper. My great grandmother was a school teacher before she married Rollo. I have some wonderful photographs and also wish to add a biography for each of them.
