. An Old Guy....

A bit of history: Prices for lots in the Acworth Cemetery back in 1964 were $15.00 for one or two grave lots and $25.00 for three to six grave lots. Amazing huh?

Bio / Biography: Something "you" wrote about a persons life history. Not a word for word copy and paste out of a newspaper obituary or a funeral home website.

I will not add a "Poached Copy" of an obituary from a newspaper or funeral home notice to a memorial.

Additionally, biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a virtual flower.

PLEASE don't steal my pictures, go out in the hot sun or the freezing cold and go take your own pictures. Go walk up and down hills like a billy goat I did!!. Plus you have to carry paper and pencils and other stuff needed. Plus you have to look for the stones.

These sneaky people will try anything, And "YOU" know who you are !!!!
Some even think they own the Cemeteries

I looked at the gravestone again (which I should have done before I started all these messages).
Curiouser and curiouser...

RE: Louisa Currier Woodbury
In the few minutes since I sent that I found your listing of Sally Davis Graham. There is a disconnect somewhere, either in the Acworth History or my other sources of information. I'll keep nagging this one! If you find anything, do let me know.

RE: Louisa Currier Woodbury
Not being argumentative, but... :)
According to Merrill's History of Acworth (1869), page 287, "Charles M. [Woodbury] married Louisa G. Currier. Louisa's mother was widow "Mrs. Sally Graham married Joseph Currier" (page 221). Their one child was Louisa. So, my guess is that the "C" on the tombstone is for her maiden name. I'm trying to find where I got the Graham, but I believe it is correct. I think it is likely that the Graham was a tribute to her first husband.

RE: Mary F. Buss
Thank you Jim. I added some edit suggestions on Mary's birthdate too. I don't know if you will get that info or if Find A Grave looks at it. But I was able to fill in a blank for Mary Buss. Thanks for adding her parents. Nice memorials for your pets too. Nice idea!

Jim -

That works for parents & spouses & children but not siblings. It's in the Find A Grave FAQ's. The only way to reunite siblings is through the parents. Thanks for the quick response.

Mary F. Buss
Hi Jim -

I am researching Mary F. Buss' family and can tell you that her father was Jonathan Butler (Find A Grave # 44713053) and her mother was Martha Russel Butler (Find A Grave # 44713024). I can prove this through NH Birth Records. If you could add Mary's parents to her memorial then she would also be linked up with some of her other siblings on Find A Grave. I am reaching out to the creators of the memorials of the other siblings to try & "reunite" as much of the family on Find A Grave as possible. Thank you for your consideration.

RE: Louisa Currier Woodbury
You're not a bad guy! I was curious about your reasoning. I believe one source I had for her name was an Acworth history. I can't say why the stone has "C". Who knows.

Louisa Currier Woodbury
I recently did an edit on her. She is a great-great grandmother. This was rejected, though it is not clear who rejected in, so I'm guessing perhaps it was you, as you maintain the memorial.
Family history, and some sources I have checked, give her name as Louisa Graham Currier, though I see the gravestone appears to have a "C". You live in Acworth so likely know more than I do, but I am curious to pursue this.
Many thanks.
