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 so it didn't take me very long to create memorials for my departed relatives in the local cemeteries.
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” (Mello) 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 related to only 40 of the memorials I've created and always like to see them in the care of family.

I usually don't post my photos to memorials with existing headstone photos unless my photo is truly a better shot (clearer, brighter, color-balanced or cropped so it can be read), but when using the Upload & Transcribe function there isn't any indicator that an existing memorial already has a headstone photo, so it does happen. If I've done that to one of your memorials I'll be happy to remove my photo if you ask.

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: 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.

Helen G. "Nellie" Bowie Cleary - 145116582
Just curious as to where you got her first name as Helen? Nothing I can find on her shows her name as Helen...not censuses before marriage, not censuses after marriage, not marriage info, not birth of children info...
Thanks for any assistance!

Baylies Headstone
Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph Mr. Baylies headstone. His son was the famous WWI Ace Frank Leaman Baylies of the Lafayette Flying Corps who was tragically shot down and killed June 17, 1918.
