Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy photographing and researching graves in the local cemeteries. You are welcome to use my photos of your relatives graves in your family trees. That is what they are for and I don't need to be credited.

If you find errors in my memorials please let me know so I can fix them. I will edit my memorials if your information doesn't conflict with what I have found in my research, unless you have proof the old documents are in error (which we know often happens).

Photo Requests:
If you don't want people using your pics then please don't fill the photo requests. That is just plain stupid. If you are that hung up on your "copyright" then maybe you should just put your pics in your own private trees.

Try to find where they were buried, but if you can't be aware that when someone does find them in a cemetery then FAG rules state that your memorial will be the one deleted, no matter if yours was there first.

No Death Date:
Please don't enter memorials just because there is a headstone. If there is not a death date and they could possibly still be alive, be respectful and don't create a memorial. Many people plan ahead and buy headstones years before they die or their name is put on a spouses headstone. Just hold on to your pics until you find a death record for them.

I will gladly transfer memorials to relatives, as long as they aren't related to us. I don't care about my numbers and I don't think any of us should be holding anyone's ancestors hostage. If you ask for a transfer it is nice if you can add a bio, if there isn't one, so no one is forgotten, plus it helps others in verifying their trees. Linking memorials together also helps all of us out here trying to unscramble mysteries.

Let's all work together, play nice, forget about your numbers and make this a place where people can find all their missing links.

As an added note... if you email me please tell me who you are talking about. I don't answer emails that just request that I email back with no explanation of why I should, or requesting that I call. I don't call anyone.

Info. for Clayton H. Barnett
Hi Shirley, I have a small amount of information for Clayton Barnett's Bio. He did marry at least once in his life. It was in his later years. My sister and I attended his wedding in Groveton,NH. The woman's first name that he married was Clara. A relative of mine said that at some time in his life he was a door to door salesman, but she doesn't know what product he sold at that time.. Later in life he was a resident of the Kent Nursing Home in Lancaster, NH. Wish I could remember more. Thanks for reading this.

Robert Timberlake
transfer request
You are managing a memorial for Raymond Timberlake #166562641. He was my father's brother, although he died before my father was born, and I would be pleased to "manage" this memorial and make appropriate family linkages. I am Robert Timberlake, member #49277540. Thanks.

Twombly family interconnections
Hello Shirley,

On your Find A Grave biography for Lucy Twombly you mused about if there really was a Dorcas Twombly. Yes, there is at Find A Grave #148934980. :-) Perhaps many Twombly family members have been added to Find-a-Grave that might answer many of your questions about early Twombly family of this area.

Thanks for your good work on Find A Grave and for sharing your genealogy research here.

JUST SO YOU KNOW you should have received an email notification where I requested that you please add the information I had and link him to his parents or that I would be happy to transfer the memorial to you. So I am not sure where the disconnect is here. Thank you however for making the changes and if you would like the memorial I will be happy to transfer it to you. Pat

RE: Jewett S. Lang #155737389
Good work I was so confused before! Another funny thing is that Jewett's stone is completely separate and by itself from the rest of the stones in that section of the cemetery. I do know that eventually all the plots around him will be full because I was told that every single plot in the cemetery has been bought but its always seemed odd to me that the stone was by itself

RE: Jewett S. Lang #155737389
That is so confusing! I'll upload it now and let you figure out what to do with the memorial lol. The poor stone falls over every year and they completely stopped picking it up so now it just lays where it fell a few years ago. I wish I could somehow fix that but it looks like they just shove it back in the ground each time

Jewett S. Lang #155737389
I have a picture of a grave with the same exact name and death date of this memorial except the age on the stone is 63 years. I was going to create a memorial but don't want to duplicate yours if I am correct- Did you find a stone for the memorial and just haven't uploaded the picture yet? The stone I found is located in Hinesburg, Vermont
Let me know what you think!

RE: Hamlin Case #97591062
Hi Shirley,
I am not related to Hamlin but like you I spend a lot of time making sure my memorials are thorough. I have been trying to track down Hamlin's father George but without success.

I am happy to maintain his memorial and add more details if you wish to transfer the memorial. I live near enough to Nashua to get into Woodlawn pretty easily. I will talk to them on Tuesday about whether his stone is going to be re-mounted on the base.
