Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are members of the Boylston Historical Commission and Boylston Historical Society, working to map, photograph, and link the graves in the town of Boylston to preserve the historical heritage of the town.

Additionally we are researching our own extended families and linking them on as we go.

Many times when we are working in some of the cemeteries we have leftover time and will photograph and create memorials for individuals pertaining to neither of the above endeavors and would welcome transfer requests from family for those individuals.

At present we cannot transfer Boylston memorials as we continue a multi-year effort to edit and complete their documentation for the town. We would greatly welcome information contributions to this effort!!

Edit Requests: Please ensure you either have email enabled on your profile or include an email with your request. Otherwise it is very difficult for us to determine the veracity of the request. Thanks!

Templenoe Old Graveyard
Hi Bruce -

I see you have a request for several Doyle's in the Old Templenoe Cemetery in Blackwater, Kenmare, Kerry, Ireland. My great grandmother was Julia Doyle Sullivan daughter of John Doyle and Johanna Gallivan both of who are in this cemetery. I just returned from Ireland and was told that all of the Doyle's from that area are related? Unfortunately, the photos I took of the Doyle's in the cemetery weren't saved but since I'm IT challenged, I'm going to the phone store Wednesday in hopes of retrieving. If I am able to retrieve, I will post the stones I have. Unfortunately, most are badly weathered, no longer exist, made of a simple wood cross, were never there or have fallen into total disrepair. Are these direct relations of your's? Very interested in the Doyle's. Tx - Mike (

Greetings again Bruce,

I got poking around on the library of congress website today and found the obit in the Barre newspaper for Jane. It lists that she, and I also found obit for daughter Hannah, were buried in the Wilson cemetery.
I went on to Wilson ceme. transcribe page but could not find any listing for her there.
I have placed a memorial for her there based on a preponderance of evidence. Do you have anything different for her?
I have also linked her to her second husband Richard.
She sounds like she was quite a lady, well liked in the community. Also found an article on her 80th birthday surprise party. Both have been added to memorial if you haven't already seen them.

Hi Bruce,

I have added the info on the first marriage to Frank (also found his date of death) and I have sent edits to link her to her daughter Betty and son William.

Thanks for notifying me about the duplicate. I will work with the other contributor about the burial place discrepancy of the mother.
