Born in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. My father was born Crabb in Easton, Maine. His father was born in New Brunswick, Canada. The Crabbs are a Loyalist family coming to what is now New Brunswick from Westchester County, NY at the end of the Revolutionary War.
My mother was a Merrill, the first of our line in Dover, Maine, about 1821, being True Merrill. Our whole line is buried in Pine Grove Cemetery, Dover-Foxcroft, Maine.

From Find-a-Grave FAQ's

I'm sending along the policy for adding individuals to Find-a-Grave when you don't know where they are buried. This is only supposed to be used for RECENT deaths. I hope you please stop adding memorials for people when you don't know when they died let alone where they are buried. You currently have over 600 entries with no cemetery location. is better suited for adding family trees. Find-a-Grave is based upon knowing the grave location first and then linking families. Please reconsider your entries.


How do I add a memorial when I'm not sure what cemetery they are buried?

This is similar to adding a memorial for cremation. Do not create a new cemetery which does not exist in order to add these memorials. Use the Family and Friends link and select the Burial:Other and then Recent Death, location of body unknown option.

Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days.

William Clair and Josephine
William Clair #132601528 and Josephine Clair # 132600606 are in the wrong cemetery and also a duplicate. They are properly listed in the Lower Gordonsville cemetery along with the other Clairs and also marked by a grave stone. the numbers there are, William # 156237521 and Josephine,#156237563. Thank you. Rodney

RE: Kimball and Oakes stones
You're welcome. I sent the edits to Karen for the Oakes corrections. Not sure if I sent the ones for Kimball.

I actually sent you an edit also for Elizabeth Crabbe and updated the photo yesterday on my to Caribou. If you have any photo requests in the Fredericton area please let me know and I will try to get them for you.

I always copy the name as spelled in the listed source. Will make a note of it on the memorial, though. Thanks.

RE: Eugene Greer- making a memorial without cemetery
Hi Duane,

Yes, You explained how to make a memorial, then deleting the cemetery well enough so that I was able to successfully do that.

Thank you so much!

RE: Eugene Greer
I had sent you an email, but still need to know this information.

How do you create a memorial on Find a Grave, when no cemetery is listed? I have noticed that you do that frequently.

I need to create some, who aren't listed where they are buried, or their ashes are just scattered.

Thank you,
Your Cousin

RE: Joanne Walker
Hello Duane,
I had been asking about your memorial for Joanne Walker (see subject line).
I'm sorry for the typo of "Joan Walker"- I tried to delete that one, but couldn't.
I no longer need an answer to my original question as I received one from a family friend.
Sorry for the confusion and thank you for your contributions to Find A Grave,

Joanne Walker
Just doing a little research on behalf of her close family friend and it appears that there is a good chance that she could be buried in NH.
My question is how do know that she is definitely in Melrose?
Thanks for your F.A.G. contributions.
