Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy and American History are my passions. That being said, I recognize that Find A Grave is a Memorial site, not a Genealogy site. But it is a great research tool, and as such should be made as correct as possible.
My "home" cemetery is Brookfield Cemetery, in Worcester county Massachusetts. I try to fulfill photo requests in the immediate area whenever possible.
I want these memorials to be in the hands of family members - if this is your 3x great uncle, he means more to you than to me! So, please ask, I will transfer.

Are you a descendant? If so, Hello cousin! Elizabeth and Benjamin are my 5th great grandparents.

RE: Updates in Brookfield Cemetery
Yes Pauline, Rebecca first married Obed. They had twelve children together.He died in 1779. She married Lt. John Muzzy sometime after his first wife, Mary Ball passed away, so that's after 1786. They had no children together.John and Mary had 11, but that is besides the matter. I see that things could get tangled up as Lucy married a son of Lt. John and Mary named John Muzzy [Mussey] and had daughters she named Lucy and Lydia!!

Reverend Daniel Wait
I found an 1870 census record today showing that Rev. Wait lived in Oxford in 1870, so it is more likely than not that he was minister of the church I attend (1869-1871). As soon as I can absolutely determine that they are the same, I will submit additional information and a photo of. Rev. Wait, and one of Mrs. Wait.

RE: Update - Oscar Rice in Brookfield
Hi Pauline, I came to the same conclusion about Oscar Rice and sent you an e-mail about it earlier. We are in agreement. I will resubmit. Thanks, Julie

Can you transfer Wendell Holmes 64507405 to me? His sister is my great-grandmother. Still a mystery to us why he is in Brookfield. His mother and 1 sister were in Worcester in factory work and the other sister was in Boston. The immigrated from Canada after the father had died. Thank you!

RE: Your edit for Bethiah Nichols in Brookfield
Bethia (Miller) Nichols is included in the Ware Genealogly; Robert Ware, of Dedham, Massachusetts, 1642 - 1966, and His Lineal Descendants. Compiled by Miss Emma Forbes Ware, of Milton, Mass. 1838 - 1898. Published by Charles H. Pope, 221 Columbus Ave, Boston, Mass. 1901. I have a reproduction copy acquired from The New England Historic Genealogical Society.

Page 73:
"Bethia, Feb. 14, 1815; d. Nov. 11, 1865, Chicago; m. Rev. Washington A. Nichols, now of Lake Forest, Illinois."

I have not further verified her death date or location.

Lt. Albert H. Mellen
I am sure I am late to the game on this one, but I just ran across a grave for Lt Albert H. Mellen in Brunswick County, NC, where he died. You have one for the same person in MA.

Soooo, what is the ruling on the duplicate graves?

My husband's family has a marker for a son who died and was buried in a Civil War prison camp. But there is no grave for the young man in the family plot, just the marker.

Lt. Mellen is not in my family tree. Not long ago I was in the Old Brunswick Burial ground taking pictures of headstone art. Today I was going through the pix. One is Lt. Mellen. I looked up info for him on Find A Grave and found the duplicates.

Looking forward to your response.
