Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please DO NOT send a request for me to link a memorial to yours if your memorial is "burial unknown".

I have been doing gene research for about ten years and have an extensive tree on Ancestry.com. My kin come mainly from the Northeast, Canada, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I am a Maker, a Parker, a Harvey, a Heath and a Kemp. I have extensive roots in Cutler, ME and Merrimack, NH.

I love wandering old places and especially graveyards. One's name may never been written previously or since, one's life never recorded other than the engraving on the stone.

"To gather up the records of the past and present, and faithfully transmit them to the future, is a duty which one generation owes to another." - The Rev Ira C Tyson, Bedford, NH 1885

Many of the memorials I have created are for family members, but once I get to a graveyard I photograph many stones and add them here as well. I am thorough and link memorials when the data is on the stone or if I have uncovered it in my personal research. I do not see these memorials as my property and will gladly transfer non-relatives to anyone with more info, a relationship, or more care. I will gladly and quickly make changes/additions/link relations upon request also.

Please feel free to use my pics without request as you wish. I took them for you! My camera takes awesome pics that I need to shrink in order to upload them to findagrave; if you would like a copy of the better pic emailed to you please ask - it really tickles me to find a pic someone has been looking for.

Many other contributors are playing a numbers game and I think they have lost sight of the purpose: documentation. If you are too busy to make requested changes in order to properly document one's LIFE, if you enter the bare minimum of info when more data is readily available, if it is all about entering one more name, please be gracious when one asks for a transferal of the memorial. Nobody is going to list how many memorials you created on YOUR memorial! 100 thorough, family-linked memorials are better than 126,000 half-assed name listings with death date years - but only in my opinion.

Some folks on FAG are re-creating their family tree here which is JUST SUPER if they know where they are all buried. The problem is that they often add memorials without burial information in order to be able to link other memorials together. I take photos to document a grave, and I search the same cemetery on FAG for the name before creating a new memorial. I do NOT search all of FAG because I know darn well where they are buried - so If I duplicate a memorial that one of you idiots list as "no cemetery" then forgive me for not considering my memorial a duplicate.

That being said, there are many contributors here that truly care that these memorials matter. They spend hours in graveyards and on their computers to ensure that these folks are not forgotten. In their profiles there is no mention of the website rules. All they ask is that we care. I do.

Sarah Eliza Fisk Heath - # 102725343
I am curious why the dates on the memorial, and those on her gravestone, do not match. The gravestone lists her burial year as 1839, not 1829; and was wondering if the memorial might be due to a typographical error; or if you have more information not cited.

I am no relation to the deceased. I just came across the grave in my travels while searching for a lost relative (with connections to the "Heath" surname); and am trying to figure out whether or not this lady was a centenarian. :)

Thanks for all your contributions to Find A Grave.

In Gratitude,

Thank you so very much... I have a feeling you have documented many of my family members.... I just need to keep plugging away ;)
btw - Would you mind keeping an eye out for the surname "Stever".... I know for certain it is a family name, as family members are currently carrying it as a middle name etc.... but I can't seem to find the ancestor it came down through.
Thanks Again,
L

Abigail & Moses Morse in Sturtevant Cemetery
Good Morning Amy,
I am writing concerning memorials I made for them, as they are family for me, in Center Harbor cemetery back in December from Abbie's DC... you have proved that this was an error ;)... I have moved them into the correct cemetery. They are not direct grandparents, so if you are related as well, maybe we could get these combined... I am open to your thoughts.... I am so glad to see photos of the HS.... so thanks so much for that.
Let me know what your thoughts are....
Blessings,
L

Hi


Thanks for the photo of Moses Henry Bagley died in 1859. His father is the brother of my 3x's great grandpa Samuel Bagley. Moses and Mary Jane Card moved to Grand Manan Island after the civil war. I drove from Calif to Cutler, ME in 2012 to look for any paperwork on Samuels parents. I was told a fire took all the papers with it except the marriage of Moses and Mary.
Jean Marie Bagley via John Adam Bagley and Lucy Berry Bagley all from Jacksonville in Machias. We are related young lady Nasty Chevy sounds very familiar hmmmm Lots of Makers in my tree.

Thanks...
Hi Amy, and thanks for the Anne Rymes Barrell transfer. By the way, on her husband's memorial (Coborn Barrell), the death date (chipped away) given in the grave stone transcription should read 1762, instead of 1764 (based on death notices in New England newspapers). I appreciate all the work you've done; our ancestries are quite intermingled, as you and I cross paths a lot.

Just noticed there were some errors in her listing in the Kensington database. I changed her DOD from 1749 to 1745 and her age at death from 44 to 49. The image is clearer in your picture than mine.

Upper Yard Cemetery
Hi Amy - Been a while since we contacted. Thanks for the heads up on the Kensington cemetery merger. I told Find A Grave about the issue a while ago. Since I put the entire Upper Yard cemetery database I got from the town on line, I'm sure there are a lot of duplicates. I'll try to get in and help clean them out. Now that I'm retired, I should have more time for pictures and research (Yeah, RIGHT!!). Richard
