Bio and Links
Bio Photo ATTENTION: If you are going to comment or email me personally, please remember your manners. I don't take kindly to rude and abusive people who attack without provocation. Remember to be kind. You get what you give :)
I am now in the Danvers, Massachusetts area and will be working on the local burials in addition to my usual favorites.
Most of the memorials I submit, will eventually have gravestone photos, and more complete information. I just start by entering the bare essentials, then work on some bio info, adding family links, then work on editing photos to submit. I'm severely backlogged on the photos, sorry.
If you would like to make corrections to any of my memorials, please use the Suggest Correction feature, and give me full details. If you wish to dispute my information, please provide your source, so i can verify that my information is incorrect. If you wish to add bio info to a memorial, instead of just hard facts, use the suggest feature and state clearly what you would like me to do. i will likely copy and paste it just as you write it.

If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please use the Suggest Correction feature for that as well. If I am not family or researching them in some way, then I will gladly do so. I DO NOT insist that you must be family to get a transfer, just that you have an interest in taking *and maintaining* responsibility for it.
Note: I have a strong interest in all of the families in the town of Nahant, Massachusetts, and with most of the town of Harpswell, Maine. These are areas that I find are highly interconnected with my direct lines, so I have just started to study the whole towns. I also am running a surname study for McGonigle (and all variations), I'm am always on the lookout for any listings and new additions to my project (which is solo, and always ongoing).

I am a funeral director and embalmer @ Seaside. The baby that you are requesting a photo of was moved to Skidmore Cemetery last month at the request of the father, Darrell McGonagill. He was present for the re-interment as was his daughter, Brenda's older sister. Had I known that you wanted a photo of the marker I would have spoken with Darrell. You can find her marker at Skidmore cemetery in Bee County as of earlier this month.

RE: alwilda sinclair
Her widower David's niece Madeline married one of the Coffin brothers. Her sister-in-law Alice would be my father's aunt. [It seems closer, stated that way.] Do you know the Coffins of Waldoboro or the Williamsons? They left Boothbay the same year my sister and her family moved there in 2010.

I have her as Alice only in 1880 Nahant Marriages, 1880 Nahant Births, 1880 Nahant Deaths, and 1885 Boston (East Boston) Deaths. After that Allie, then later fully Alwilda. With two clerks using Alice, either the informants chose to use it, or her, even if briefly. I'm not wholly convinced that she ever used it herself, yet (unless she was the informant for one of these records), but I was about ALlie, even before you mentioned her doing so.

Drop me a line, via email, if you want to talk more about Taylors, Kemps, Nahant, Sinclairs, COffins, etc. I'd appreciate the chance to do so and pass on what I found, if you are interested.

Hi Allyssa. You're asking the right question, here. Per Nahant Deaths, her name was then recorded as "Alice". I have updated the bios of the baby boy and the mother to hopefully more properly reflect the transitory nature of this particular aliasing.

Do the bios now make more sense? Is it sufficient sense?

I'm gladly willing to adjust this further, as necessary, as more detailed information on this particularly individual and her family becomes available, or a close relative is found who can elaborate further and more accurately, from the first or second person.

I am still very interested in this spouse (ADK-TS) of an brother (DAS) of a mother (AFS) of a wife (MES-C) of a brother (BAC) of a husband (GSC#1) of the aunt (MFG-C) of my father. Two of my father's uncle's other siblings (ZEC-L, and (EDC, m. P) are also married to relatives, too. These folks are the Sinclairs who also married into the Coffins. Both of these families are buried in the Salem Greenlawn Cemetery.

The Coffins founded Hytron (vacuum-tube) Electronics. This was once a major employer in the area, including my grandfather, their cousin, who also lived down the street from their Danvers plant. That later became part of Sylvania florescent light plant, where my father also worked.

Sorry: you already had that she was born in Ireland. You probably already had seen the Massachusetts Death Record. Sometimes trying to be helpful comes across as being a know it all! Thanks for all your graving work!
