Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived in Acushnet, MA. since 1958 and have always been interested in photography and history so having a hobby that combines the two is great.

I'm a 2nd generation American on both sides of my family with both sets of grandparents arriving in New Bedford, MA after 1900.
My parents, David Pimental and Norma S. Pimental, maternal grandparents, Harry #39060089 and Bertha (Baumeister) Settele #39060089, plus maternal aunts and uncles, Louis H. Settele #39060184 and his wife, Kathleen “Kay” Higham #39060231 and Harry Settele Jr #39059970 and his wife, Mary Anna Josefek #39060037, are at Pine Grove Cemetery in New Bedford so I started adding to the entries there to aid others researching their genealogy and got hooked on photographing stones and adding to the data on FAG.

Since 2012 I've been concentrating on Rural Cemetery which is also the final resting place for my paternal grandparents, Manuel Dias Pimental Jr #41299437 and Valentina (Mello) Pimental #41294992, Grand-aunt and Godmother, Amelia “Millie” Monteiro #41294450, paternal great-grandparents, Manuel #41294221 and Rosa (Botelho) de Mello #41294307 and Grand-aunt Beatrice “Bea” Edwards #41294366.

Please don't hesitate to ask for a transfer of any relative of yours that I've entered, no matter how distantly related. I'm not related to most of the memorials I've created and always like to see them in the care of a family member.

I post most of my headstone photos to Ancestry in my FAG Research tree under my Ancestry user name "trinka5364". I also post my photos to Ancestry when I find that I've photographed stones that already have photos posted in FAG.

Anyone who wishes to use these headstone photos for non-commercial purposes should have the courtesy to give credit to the photographer when copying: ex: Photo by D J Pimentel, or copy & paste the Find A Grave Memorial #.

The flowers I leave on memorials are mostly shots I've taken of flowers in my garden or ones I took when visiting other gardens on vacation.

RE: Arabella Sanderson Coombs 180448015
I used the 1900 U.S. Census, New Bedford, Ward 4, 27 Onion St

- Arabella S Coombs b. May 1835
- William Coombs b. Jul 1839

"Arabella" is spelled "Arravella" on the census, but in those days the census taker often put it down how he heard it.

Hope it helps,
Barry Coombs

Taylor family at Rural
thank you for edit with Ann Taylor death 1919. There are 4 of her children in the same lot seen in your photo Charles, Rose, Martha, and John. Perhaps a 5th a stone I cannot make out located back to the left of John 1860-1928. Would you like me to create memorials for them?
best regards
