RE: Keezer Headstone
You are welcome. One note though... he is buried in Meadow Cemetery, not Meadow Cemetery I. They are across the street and down from each other.

These cemeteries are fascinating to me as all headstones are placed chronologically. You can see the evolution from headstones to flat stones.

Meadow Cemetery I begins burials from the early 1970s. It is mostly an empty meadow since they closed the NH State Hospital not long after.

I have a document outlining the different buildings of the NH State Hospital grounds and their history if you are ever interested.

Hi Ralph..I've completed documenting the cemetery. All names in the MOCA book have been added. Everyone who has a stone has been photoed, and those without a stone have been noted in the bio. Happy hunting! Kit

Hello Ralph,

You are welcome. I just stumbled across them a couple of weeks ago while researching the Field family. Their daughter Effie was the 2nd wife of Frank Field.

I have sent edits and links to Angie's parents.

See 150812257. When I got home and was sorting through photos, I was surprised to find that my random shot of Grace was not in Find a Grave.

Your ancestry tree was helpful in finding her parents and I added the links.

RE: Dollies Jones
Good catch Ralph. I just took another peek - it looks as if she is set up there as Dollie Jones by another contributor as well... We'll pop our photo on that memorial as well as well, assuming one of them should be deleted at some point. I'm not sure either contributor is still active. If you need any other help in that cemetery, give a shout.

RE: Gowen Family Burial Ground
It is a very small cemetery. I took photos of all the stones..about 15 & will put them on the memorials as I have time. You are most welcome. Kit

Hi there,

Are you related to the Banks family (e.g. Ada Charlotte Banks) of Ontario? Ada is my 3rd cousin 3X removed. Her Great Grandfather Richard is my 4th great grand uncle.

RE: Office pictures
I work for Ancestry and this is my grandmothers grave. I used it a few times to test things but thanks for reminding me. I'll clean the photos up.

RE: Hodsdon headstones
The stone for my great uncle was mildly difficult to find. Richard and Agnes are NOT in the Thomaston Village Cemetery. They are in the Weskeag Village Cemetery in South Thomaston (aka South Thomaston Village Cemetery). I will be working to get their memorials moved to the Weskeag Village Cemetery.

Find a Grave also has a "Village Cemetery" for South Thomaston that should be combined with Weskeag. What fun.

Are you related to Richard or Agnes?

Hello Ralph,

You transferred James Freeman # 44871788 to me some time ago, and I would like to ask if you would also transfer his wife Elizabeth Baker Freeman # 44871797 to me please.
I was without my laptop for nearly six months due to a nasty virus. Now I am having teething troubles with Microsoft 10.
Thanks. Jackie

Hi again,

Sure wouldn't want you to get hurt, but I'm glad you stumbled this time.

Thanks again,

RE: Lilla Collins
Hi Ralph,

What a surprise!

Since I had been told, after a thorough search of the entire cemetery, there was no marker for Lilla, I had accepted the fact that this wasn't going to happen.

Obviously, you have a special knack at finding these.

Thank you so very much!

RE: Violette headstone
You are welcome ! Took that with my phone and the Find-A-Grave app. - hence the GPS coordinates. Could have spent more time cleaning up, but did remove most of the leaves and faded plastic flowers.

RE: Susie Coffelt property
thank you for your efforts - know that it is a loved home. I heard from my neighbor in creating the subdivision plants were removed. I have spent the last 18 years planting and loving my garden. One of the first plantings was 12 blueberry bushes along the drive way.

Susie Coffelt property
I am searching the history of my house and found out that she was the first owner. I am interested in find out if some of what I heard about my property is true. It sounds like she had several properties in the Tigard area. Can you be of some assistance?
