|Bio and Links|
|I'm a middle school English teacher that spends "spare" time conducting genealogical research. I have spent lots of time in the Forest Hill and Laurel Hill cemeteries, but recently focused most of my efforts at St. Bernard's and St. Joseph's. |
Please feel free to use photos that I take for whatever purpose you choose. However, any and all photos must include proper source information in the citation. This allows other researchers to maintain the integrity of the research process.
I often have additional and/or higher quality images, and sometimes additional information, for many of the memorials. Please contact me if interested.
Please note that although I strive to take the best possible quality photos, I occasionally upload pictures that I plan to replace in the future.
I generally create memorials with the same spelling used on the marker, when one exists. Additional information, such as names of parents, also utilize information/spelling as seen on the primary sources.
Several gravestones at Laurel Hill no longer stand where they were first erected. Several factors, including erosion and vandalism, have led to these stones being placed in seemingly random locations. I try to document both where these stones are now, and where they should be.

|Kitty ||RE: looking for family|
They are at St. Bernard. Patrick McCann, Andrew McCann, Thomas McCann, and Mary McCann. They should be all in the same lot

Eliza A. Leach Tolman.
Sorry, the date of their marriage is correct, could you add the marriage location.
|Paula Stout||Find a grave#106051946|
Eliza A. Leach, according to the marriage record in Oxford, Worcester, Massachusetts their marriage date is 17 August 1836, not the 15th. Not a big deal, would like their marriage record the same.
The marriage date is in ancestry.

|Sonja Brumley Vaughn||Rose Duplease Luttrell|
Rose Duplease Luttrell 90604380 and 114632250 seem to be a duplicates. I have transferred mine to you, as you seem to be a relative. The obit says she is in Laurel Land and there are two people that have filmed it. Good luck combining them.
|Elizabeth Jill||Find A Grave Memorial# 141107866 Annie Frances Moran|
I am researching my great grandmother Annie Frances Moran. I was wondering where you got all the info about her for this record? Some of the info listed here is different from the info I have for her. Do you have a picture of the grave?

|Dianne||Henry Chase & Emma Wyman|
Hello! I'm hoping you can help me out since you created the memorials for Henry 122034678 and Emma 122034648. The headstone was hard to read and want to verify that his name was Henry and not Harry. I have a book on the history of the Boston Theater where he and Emma were both actors for many years. He is always listed as Harry E Chase in this book. In addition I have found census records that list him as Harry. However his death record does show Henry which makes this all the more confusing. My great grandfather was Harry E Chase born in the same year in the same county so seems to be a bit of a puzzle. You did mention on Emma's memorial that there was an obituary for her. Do you have a copy of that? Does she refer to her deceased husband as Harry or Henry? I would love a copy if you could email it to me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for your time and help with this! Dianne

Bill, Thanks so much for photographing the Wells headstones at Saint Bernard cemetery. Your efforts are very much appreciated.
|Chris Enright Snyder||Ainsley Atwood Irish #134859214|
Could you add the parents of Ainsley Atwood Irish to his page here? I've waiting for 2 weeks for Findagrave to do this, but I guess they are overloaded with requests.
