RE: Vivian Quintb

You're very welcome for the photos, Ralph. Wish I could have found a marked crypt at that location for you. Glad I could help out with the final resting place, though.

Thanks anyway for a speedy reply. You're right, that's very distant. Happy Rain-drenched Fourth!

Wm Gowan & Rex Kelley
I see you are caretaker of Rex Conon Kelley, son-in-law of Wm. Gowan. And wonder if you are a descendant. I'm searching for a living contact with a descendant of Rex C. Kelley, the son of David and Frances M. Kelley, and brother of Chastine Kelley, all originally from Maine. Thanks

RE: Oakdale photos-- Weymouth
My pleasure! Glad I could assist. The lighting was poor and in one of the photos, I was trying to get a photo of the headstone and the foot markers but because of the lighting, the footers were dark and the headstone overlit. I will retake that photo soon. Also, I added the GPS coordinates using the Findagrave app (which I LOVE!). The coordinates are not EXACT even though I was standing RIGHT there at the footers. On Google maps, the pin drops the location on the opposite side of the road. The graves are to right of side of the road.

Myrtle - Myrt E Green
I took the headstone photo but in doing so noted that it indicated Myrt E Green. All the other information matched. I have scanned copies of the cemetery map and the Garden of Flowers plot map if you would like these please email me at
The plot is: Garden of Flowers, 105A-1

Added by jcaacs77 on Jun 18, 2014 3:22 PM

I do have a plot picture. Sadly the father stone has become dislodged from it's place in the ground. Do you want me to post the picture on their site? Sandy

Added by Sandy on Jun 12, 2014 7:35 AM

Purely by luck! We are not from this area, but moved here shortly before my Dad died. He was a minister and died at the age of 56 years. We live 2 minutes from the cemetery and bought a plot there! Now the cemetery is full and no further plots are sold.

Crystal Lake, Gardner, MA
I searched all over the cemetery for the headstone of the McRae family and finally found it literally next to my parent's grave! Shows you how I do not pay much attention to detail! My parents have only been buried there since 1972! Now I know! There is no mention of Cora Gowen and Albert McRae but there are two foot stones labeled Father and Mother.

Isaac Bradeen, Elder Grey Cemetery
Thank you so much for your work and the information you've provided on Isaac Bradeen, buried in the Elder Grey Cemetary in Waterboro. I so appreciate that I can find this information from such a distance with many details that I have not been able to find elsewhere. Thank you again!

RE: Libby stones at Oakdale
Hi Ralph,
Yes, the stone for Abbie Jane Shaw Libby was taken at Oakdale Cemetery in Sanford, ME... NOT Riverside Cemetery in Springvale (as listed on Find A Grave). It was located in the same plot as Orville Libby (listed as "Spouse" and Abbie Libby listed as "Child"). Also, I noticed the year of birth on Find A Grave as 1858, but the stone reads 1859. If I was in error adding this photo for this memorial, please let me know (and I apologize in advance).
