Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member of R.I. Historical Society,Johnston Historical Society,VFW post 1282 and Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. I am a graduate of Mount Pleasant High in Providence R.I. I enlisted in Air Force and spent most of my time overseas.I am a Vietnam Vet and spent 10yrs with the Air National Guard.I retired after 40yrs with Pratt & Whitney as a jet engine inspector and the last 10yrs as an FAA inspector for the company.I have been researching my family tree as a hobby.I walk a lot of historical cemeteries looking for my ancestors final resting place.I take a lot of photos and clean up some plots of the family when I find them.My mothers side of family (Whitford)dates back to the 1600's.They are called swamp yankees around here.I have many historical cemeteries located a short distance from my house.I recently became involved with Pocasset cemetery in Cranston.I only live 2 miles from their.I do a lot of cleaning of grave sites and take photos as I go.I started a page on facebook for the cemetery if anyone is interested.I use ancestry.com for the info I enter on the bios.If you find a error please send me a note and I will correct it.
News flash:As a result of all my work at this cemetery they have put me on as a board member.I will try and fill out more photo request when I figure out the filing system which is very old. Another reminder on photo request. Sometimes their is no marker for the grave only an empty plot. Sometimes the stone is overturned on the inscription and to heavy to flip over. Other times it is a flat marker that gets buried over time.
FYI All the info I obtain is from burial cards that I have access to. I also use burial cards for edit information. I was posting them on memorial but found out that F.A.G. does not want that posted.
I do appreciate all edits sent to me. My goal is to honor all the individuals that are interned here with an accurate memorial so they are not forgotten

On this memorial you have the wrong gravestone and family connections. You have the father Robert Grahmam's Headstone on the son.

Eliza Hudson Johnson Memorial
Thank you, George, for the Find A Grave Memorial# 149236396 of Eliza Hudson Johnson. I have been working on the Hudson, Richardson and Johnson family lines, trying to link these families together. I am requesting a transfer of Eliza Johnson to me as she is my late mother-in law and her son, Robert Ernest Johnson is my late husband.
Thank for all you do, Lyn Palmer

Thank you so very much for the photos of their gravestone and plot information. Sad to see no stone for Harriet. These are long lost cousins. A wealth of fascinating research shed some light on the family. Many years of wonder!

Your time and efforts are very much appreciated.

I am NOT asking for a transfer nor do I need one.

I do need to get down there some day.

Take care.

It appears either spelling was used by the same family or even the same person. I have come across several examples of this alternative spelling in other families as well. Interestly the inscription on the gravestone is almost always the shorter version. I suspect this is because the letters can be larger if there are less of them and the carvers charged by the letter.
