Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been fascinated by old cemeteries, paranormal and history. I have had many personal experiences with paranormal activities. I lived my whole life behind a huge cemetery. Many times a week I walk among the 200 year old markers and feel that they all have a story to tell. Many, many children died in their early age and it's too bad that many markers were just unnamed stones or they didn't have markers. When I do find a grave without a monument, I will place flowers and photograph the plot where they are buried.
lineage: Denomme, Morel, Doire, Defosses, Lanoue, Metivier.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

Otherwise, all updates/corrections can be sent using the Edit/SAC process.

NOTE: You have my permission to use any photo I've taken and posted on FAG in your own family research. A note of credit would be appreciated.

Currently working on updating St. Jean Baptiste Cemetery in Bellingham, MA. and St Patrick's in Pascoag, RI.

You found my G.Grandmothers unmarked grave!
Her name was Augusta (Anderson) MacDonald. She is buried at Moahassuck Cemetary in Central Falls. Now I know how she passed and am planning to place a stone on her grave site. I never would have found any of this out without your leg work. Thank you from my heart. I mean that.

I am most grateful to you. Hattie B. is still talked about in our family. I never knew my great grandmother, but I have read portions of her diary. I jogged this excerpt.

Saturday January 11, 1896
Alice cleaned and dressed turkey all by herself. She gave Robert a bath and he evidently remembered how she washed his head last week-when he saw her getting ready, he pulled on my dress and said “Mama come”, when he saw I was not coming he stopped and said “I won’t I won’t”. I suppose he meant he would not let her bathe him, but she did however and they had a nice time.

Thank you so much for the transfer!! On my list is to write an interesting bio for an interesting woman.

The link that I received
https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=158471500
Is for Dorothy carpenter Roy. I'm looking for a Dorothy Roy Whalen. I provided Bill Hewitt with a photo because I'm looking for the gravesite so I can visit it in person. Thank you

Memorial # 104631582
There is one headstone for my great-aunt and her brother, my great-uncle John Gorral. I have already taken over the memorial # for Aunt Margaret but Uncle John has a different # which lists you. Can you please transfer 104631582 to me? I would like to link both names up to the marker for my great-grandparents and now I can only do Margaret. Neither John or Margaret had children.

RE: Charles Calder
There are two entries for Charles Calder. There is an earlier entry along with a phot of his grave marker. Not sure which is correct, but it should be addressed.
Thanks for all your work on Find A Grave I am sure that is appreciated by many
