RE: Purple Heart Entries
If you can take a photo of the reverse side of the Purple Heart itself, it likely has your uncle's name thereon. That suffices as needed evidence.

Good luck!

RE: Purple Heart Entries

Your uncle's stone does not contain the inscription PH or Purple Heart. Might you have a copy of his military orders awarding him the Purple Heart? That would suffice as evidence of course.

Bev, I have made the parentage correction on Allison Libby III. Thanks for catching this. It was not how I had originally created it. Someone must have messed with it. I know my Allison Libbys, and would not have put it in this way. -- Pam

RE: Clifford Henry Sinnett, #62126345
Thanks Bev, I wasn't expecting that, but I appreciate it... I'll keep a good eye on it & do my best to fill in any more info I find.

Clifford Henry Sinnett, #62126345
Thank you for the wonderfully detailed entry you created for this person. From your information about his great-grandparents (Cpt. William Henry Sinnett & his wife Joanna), I was able to connect him to my family line through my father, Bruce Herman Matthews. They were the parents of my father's great-grandmother, Laura Etta Sinnett Johnson. Her daughter was Leona Frye Johnson Stover and her daughter was Laura Lydia Stover Matthews.
Laura Etta Sinnett's brother, Everett Erving Sinnett, was the father of Ervin Clifford Sinnett and grandfather of Clifford Henry Sinnett.
Also, Joanna's full name was Joanna Frye Thompson Sinnett, a daughter of Corydon Thompson & Priscilla Curtis.
Thank you again for all your work,
Diane Matthews

Not sure why findagrave gave you the memorial credit.

Find A Grave Memorial# 52267043
Have added photos for Little Tommy Guptill,
Find A Grave Memorial# 52267043- Shaw / South Albion Cemetery. Took photos of front and back of stone so you can see both his parents names. Perhaps you have other documentation, but his stone sets close to the road and you can see the Abbott lot sets back behind the Johnston Lot, which we think Tommy is in. Another photo added by someone else shows the Abbott lot, but Tommy's stone is not in that lot. Anyway, as mentioned you may have a listing that says it is part of the Abbott lot. Will let you decide how you wish to list it in his bio.
Thanks for your time. :)

RE: Beckwith in Maplewood
Find A Grave is not letting my edits go through to you. Please add this to Frank bio section when time allows.
Thanks so much for all you do. Much appreciation!
s/o Horace L. Howe & Sarah Ellis Howe Cilley.
(Information from: Lisa Hildreth Rhodes- Nathan Hale Cemetery Records. Frank is listed under Horace Howe.)

Frank (Frankie) Howe
Hello Bev,
Lisa left a message indicating "Frankie" in Maplewood Cemetery (Fairfield, Me.) is probably the son of Horace L. Howe & Sarah Ellis Howe Cilley. Frankie's stone is practically unreadable. But the name Howe does stand out a bit. Since he is next to Florence (her birth parents are correct) we thought Howe was Sarah's maiden name was Howe, not another married name.
Will send you edits so you can easily correct our mistakes. (Oh the shame!)

Message sent about Frankie's parents:
RE: Cilley- Florence & Frank
I'm pretty sure baby Frank Lesley Howe is the son of Horace L. Howe & Sarah Ellis Howe Cilley's son. Frank is listed with Horace in the Nathan Hale Cem Collection

RE: Beckwith in Maplewood
Thank you for taking time to respond. The stones are probably flat, therefore harder to find searching on foot with no lot numbers. Knowing other surnames in lot / plot area should be very helpful! Thanks again- hope you are feeling much better. :)

Karen Harriman Nunan
Resthaven Cemetery/Windsor ME
Find A Grave Memorial# 125096760 is for John Wesley Harriman. The gravestone is for him, his mother and another young sibling.

The husband and father is William Henry Harriman (my 2nd great grandfather) who died in Brockton, Massachusetts in 1910. His death certificate indicates that he was buried in Windsor, Maine. He is not listed in a search of Harriman's in Resthaven Cemetery. Can you give me any hints on how to find out if he is buried there?

Purple Heart Entries

A big thanks to you for all your contributions. I am a West Point graduate and am particularly interested in stones having the inscription PH or Purple Heart thereon, as that allows for registration of the individual on the Purple Heart Hall of Honor ( This may be a much bigger task than I realize, but if you add photos of stones having that inscription, might you be able to notify me?

RE: Glennis Jackson
Found Glennis Jackson's stone today, and took a photo! Of course it was the day after we messaged you. See you have removed the request already so we are going to just go ahead and add the photo anyway.
Sorry to hear your having medical issues. Hope your starting to feel better.

Added by ForgetMeNot on Sep 04, 2016 9:04 PM

Glennis Jackson
Hi Bev,
We have a map with plot / lot numbers, but no names for Maplewood Cemetery Fairfield, Me. If you can get a number for Glennis Jackson will do our best to fulfill your photo request, or any others you may have memorials for in that cemetery, or cemeteries near by.

I just fulfilled your photo request from the marker as St. Joseph's cemetery. Note the burial date is not on the marker. I saw your note regarding another memorial set up at Forest Hill cemetery. I will check to see if I can locate a marker at Forest Hill the next time we go to the cemetery. This may be a cenotaph.
