Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in central Massachusetts with my wife Barbara. Formerly the Director of Operations at a Worcester Mass. facility, I am now retired, leaving me much more time for prowling through graveyards!
I particularly like discovering and photographing old gravestones, and consider myself very fortunate to be living in New England where so many of the early settlers are buried. I also try to photograph as many graves of veterans I come across, from those who fought in the Revolutionary War through the present time.

My objectives are two-fold:

1.When I post photos of their graves on Find A Grave, along with as much bio information as I can gather about them, I feel that I am honoring their lives, in some small way.
2. I want to capture as many of these old stones on disk before acid rain, vandalism, snowplows, and whatever obliterates them forever!
(Being a graveyard junkie, however, I am apt to take a picture of any interesting grave that catches my eye...regardless of the era)!

Mountain View Cemetery link is broken
Hi again Jim,

Is this this something you are able to edit? The link to the cemetery is broken on this page: https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GRid=7411117&CRid=1607184&

Here's the correct link: https://shrewsburyma.gov/404/Mountain-View-Cemetery

Thanks in advance!

Eli Walcott
Jim,

Thanks for adding the short bio to Eli's memorial and linking him to his wife, Mary Flint Walcott.

I'll call Mountain View Cemetery Monday and ask if they'll take picture of the family markers. Noticed in the Mt View grave listing there are seven Walcott's in plot 79A, might be a family monument.

Thanks for your help and consideration.

Roger Walcott Whiting
