PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt.

I don't do estimated birth years. The relatives of the dearly departed not only could get the date of death wrong on the monument but the age at death. Too many people take anything they find on the Internet as gospel, and I will not contribute to that bad habit.

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship. I will not transfer out of guidelines. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. Use the edit system. Too many people have requested out-of-guidelines transfers and then never added so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.

I WILL NOT link to a "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.

If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.

My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.

Sources for additional memorial information include:
Suggest A Correction, NEHGS,,, NARA, other on-line sources, personal library, obituaries, newspaper items, etc.

Presenter of Betty Allen Chapter DAR and Friends of Lilly Library sponsored "Celestial Residents Walking Tours": Bridge Street Cemetery (Northampton), Park Street Cemetery (Florence), Spring Grove Cemetery (Florence), West Farms Cemetery (Florence) and a virtual tour of "The Celestial Residents of Chesterfield".

Just wanted to thank you for the time and info that you gave for these memorials. I also wanted to let you know that I have added photos in case you would like to take a look.

Thanks again!

Would you be willing to transfer Manley Milton Mowry and Lilla Josephine Mowry to me? My father, brother and sister and our families are the only descendants. If you were able to photograph the gravestones of their daughters, Mary Elizabeth Mowry (1879-1965) and Lucy White Mowry Baird and Lucy's husband, Everett Jamieson Baird, we would appreciate it.

Thanks for your messages. I appreciate it. I have Corbin myself, but if you want to cite it, it could help others.

Erastus Hopkins' House
Dear Dobson Fly,

Thank you SO MUCH for including Erastus Hopkins' house, now demolished, on his Find-a-Grave page. I was so curious! I am reading the book "Letters From Erastus" by Anne D. Emerson, which I discovered doing my investigations. I recommend it! It was just published last year.

West Farms Cemetery Florence, MA
I am working with a group of people and our City Councilor to save and restore West Farms Cemetery in Florence, MA. Any suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

My sister has recently started a family tree and I caught the bug. My research brought me to the stone in Saint Mary cemetery that I believe has both sets of my grandmothers grandparents. My great grandmother was Elizabeth O'Rourke, dob, 1874, but I don't see her listed with her siblings on the information you have.
I think I have it straight, there is a lot to sort through.
Thanks for your time,

Ruth Marion Chapin Parsons

I was hoping you could transfer the findagrave profile of Ruth Parsons to me, as she is my grandmother.

Additionally, while you may have gotten the obituary from the Daily Hampshire Gazette, it is not completely correct. When you transfer the page to me, I will update it.

Thank you very much.
