Bio

Family genealogy is something I have enjoyed since I was young. As I walk through cemeteries visiting family graves, I often wonder about the history of each individual.

I live in Barre, Vermont, home to a large granite industry. One website devoted to Barre granite says, "It has been estimated that one-third of the public and private monuments and mausoleums in America -- and they are millions in number -- are products of the Barre quarries and Barre's "international" community of sculptors, artisans, mechanics and laborers."

Perhaps this is why I have an affinity for cemeteries and graves. The artists here make the stones and memorials into works of art. I am happy to share some of them on this website.

I will gladly make edits to memorials. Please use the Suggest Edits button to send them. If it is something for the person's bio, feel free to send an email.
