|Bio and Links|
We live in Central NH. Our family (and friends) graves are located primarily all over New England and we're trying to locate as many as we can in an effort to complete family history and to honor their respective memories.|
We are especially interested in the families whose ancestors were citizens of Durham, Maine. Many thanks to all the contributors who have helped us locate photos and link family members inside the memorials.
That search fostered another into the Kenneson branch of the family, with roots in Aroostook County, Maine. Happily, FAG was the vehicle for meeting a family cousin and fellow contributor, Geno42, who has very generously shared volumes of family history and some delightful photos.
Along the way, whenever we visit a cemetery for any reason, we try to take pictures and add to the memorials in the collective data base.

|PatriotsFan||RE: I found the online obituary|
Yes, I saw that- Thank you. :)
|PatriotsFan||RE: Lawrence G. Kimball|
Thank you so much- It may take me a little while, but I'll let you know what I find out.
|PatriotsFan||Lawrence J. Kimball|
First of all- thank you for your findagrave contributions.
I was a former classmate of Larry's in Melrose, MA and had placed a request for a findagrave photo.
A potential photographer messaged me on 9/5/17 and told me that "per a personal meeting with cemetery staff- they could not confirm this burial at this cemetery" that you have listed.
Just trying to clarify and thought you might like to be aware. Any information that you have would be appreciated.
|Janice Olsen||RE: Please add photo|
Done. I didn't realize I'd missed that.
As we also expected, I did not find Walter at Advent. I think at this point I have done all I can do. I can't think of another avenue to take.

I did not find Walter in St. Louis Cemetery in Limestone (as expected). Still no word from Doreen.

Wife of Emmons Nelson. I realize there is a 2nd memorial with her name (Find A Grave 369915081) in Paris ME (Fairview cemetery). I am reasonably confident tht Caroline is in Elmwood Cemetery). Some research needs to be done on that Paris memorial. Those whom I have worked on are actually not buried in the Paris ME location. Eg. Lydia, wife of Isaiah, remarried and is interred in Otisfield. Asbury is in Portland. I think the memorial in Paris is recognizing the family of Philip Caldwell. I would be looking for ownership of the lot in Paris. I'm running lots of possibilities including it's having been done by Emmons family or that of Lydia (who is great grandmother via her second marriage).

I noticed you left a flower for my grandparents and I was wondering how you knew them. I am new to this site.
|nancyb||RE: Walter McLaughlin|
Greg's map was no help. He called someone he knew in California Settlement who said Walter was her uncle. She was 8 when he died. She wants to talk to her mother. In the meantime, can you tell me the name of the funeral home or send me the obit?

I found a map to the cemetery today at the library and Walter is not on it. Also got additional papers but probably nothing you didn't know. I'll save it all for you. I believe this information is from 1993. I will meet with Webster's caretaker on Saturday who has a map also. Hopefully it's not the same one.
