I have been doing genealogical research since 1984. I retired from the Air Force in 1994. I recently got my Researcher ID Card for Maine Vital Records. I am a member of the Maine Old Cemeteries Association, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and the Buckfield Historical Society. I am also Historian and Past Commander of John D. Long Post #58, American Legion, Buckfield, Maine. I am a son of Donald Mackay Cooper and Ruth Marcelyn Hersey.|
TOGUS NATIONAL CEMETERY
I am happy to help with volunteer photos for the Disabled Volunteer Soldiers from all over the country who lived at the Eastern Branch of the Old Soldiers Home who died there and were buried in Togus National Cemetery. I have gotten permission slips to take photos there since 2010. I research the soldiers I take gravestone photos of using my "Togus National Cemetery" family "tree" on ancestry.com to submit information from Togus admission records and use info from my photos to add gravestone tran scrip tions and co ordinates. It takes a while to do this, especially these days with slowdowns on the internet, so I am not able to gravestone photos of all names requested on alphabetical lists.
RETURN OF THE ARCHONS
Lately I have been having difficulty keeping up with edits on findagrave. I have never been a great typist, but I used to be able to type more than ONE WORD PER MINUTE! Like everyone else, I am only human and can make mistakes... but I have caught several edits from novices trying to change correct information to incorrect information. If we don't catch it within 21 days... it gets Accepted automatically. It would be nice if findagrave could add a category for edits "Edits that have been sent to me that were AUTOMATICALLY ACCEPTED"

|Ms.Cook~Maine||Luther C., Martha J. & son, Carroll B. Abbott|
I've been doing cemetery compilations of Pleasant Hill Cemetery (the new section, which everyone confuses with the cemetery of the same name across the street) in Livermore Falls since October. I've noticed there is a headstone for Luther C. Abbott, his wife Martha J. "Marthy", and their son Carroll in this cemetery as well.
I don't know where to go from here. I don't know if I should add these memorials to Pleasant Hill Cemetery, even they'd be duplicates.
Also, just a suggestion, perhaps you should delete one of the memorials linked to Luther's wife, because there is two of them, same woman.
Happy spring! 🐣🌷🌈
|phil mcalister jr||Dammons|
Hi Tim, Phil here!
I lost your number. So..im trying to contact you here. My gmail is -firstname.lastname@example.org. I have been studying the Dammons up my way. and other families that lived on my fathers farm whih was part of Jonathan Dammon the settlers lot.
My search for that cemetery on the property is my goal. I have ruled out several because I found them or varous reasons. Jonathan Dammon Jr. Lived there and on May 15 1832 he had 4 children die. The records are in the vault at town office. but no cause of death. I cannot find the 4 children in the Buckfield cemetery or cemeteries. So... I got to wonder if they are in the lost cemetery on Dads farm? the children were: Lucinda Abagail b. nov 22 1821. Patience Barker b. july 19 1824. Laura b. aug 17 1826. and Jonathan barnabas b. april 30 1831. I would have to research what diseases were likely have killed them. but all died May 15 1832. what do you think?
