The grave stone says death year of 1869 but the Massachusetts death records lists the death date as 20 May 1859. Ten year discrepancy.

Herbert Westlake
Hi Terry. I notice that you are managing the memorial of Herbert Westlake (Memorial# 32818076). Thank you for doing that. He was one of my father's uncles. I would appreciate it if you would transfer his memorial to me. As always you are performing a crucial service in creating memorials for those not with us anymore. Keep up your great work!

I want to Thank You from the bottom of my heart for sponsoring my parents memorials. I means the world to me that you would do that.
Also for the kind words you left on my Dad's memorial. I was only 16 when he passed away. I ask myself if he would like who I turned out to be as an adult. It saddens me he never got the chance to see his grandchildren & great grandchildren.

Carlisle & Allen Township Cemeterys
Can you tell me how do you tell where the Allen Township Cemetery ends & the Carlisle Cemetery starts. I know there are 2 entrances, so I know which side is which but how do you tell the difference once inside?

Find A Grave has 11 burials for Allen Township & 2023 for Carlisle. There is surely more for Allen Township.

Would you transfer management to me, please. I am married to Marilyn Munzenmaier, Sister of Ed. I have created many memorials of her family and would like to tie Donna in with the rest. Bill Grother #47239674.

William Hardy 1651-1723
Good morning, Terry.
I just printed out William's probate. It is dated 30 Jan 1722/3. This means he probably died in Dec. 1722 or Jan. 1722/3. He couldn't have died as late as April, 1723. It's going to take me some time to transcribe it. I'm out of practice reading early 18th Century hand writing. :-) Also, his birth had to be around 1651. Read Thomas's will. The first will, written ca. 1670, states that William was not yet of legal age. Legal age was 21. This makes William the youngest of Thomas's children. The Great Migration Begins as gives Williams's birth as abt. 1651.
I know that you have Thomas as being buried at the Old Bradford Burial Ground. But, our cousin, John, who has done so much to clean up the cemetery and map it, says that Thomas is not buried there. John says that Thomas and Anna were both buried behind the house. I think that's the one on King Street. He also told me that they have preliminary evidence that Anna's maiden name was French. Did you know that Anna died the same day as her granddaughter Ruth? What a hard time for William. He lost his wife, daughter and mother in the space of 5 days. As common as these things were, it's still hard to fathom the loss.
I realize that you have a link to William and Ruth Tenney/Sarah Savory, but I would appreciate it if you'd consider transferring their memorials to me. William is my 8th ggrandfather and I'm descended from his son William by Sarah. Julie Miller has already transferred Eldad and Hannah (Savory) Hardy to me and I've requested the transfer of William and Hannah (Burbank).
Thank you.

P.S. I tried writing to the e-mail address on your bio and it bounced.
