|Keeper of the Stars||Happy New Year!|
Hi,Rebecca, Thought I'd drop you a line and see how you are doing. We both have a passion for our Civil War Vets. When I am flowering them,I come across your name all the time. I pray you are strong and healthy this January. Blessings, Your friend from southern Maine, Susan♥

|Phd||RE: Isaac W. Estes|
Rebecca, according to records that I have read, he died of wounds in the 5th Corps hospital at Gettysburg and buried east of the house (which probably was the hospital). In my research of Maine Civil War soldiers, I have found many "memorial" markers in their home towns in Maine, but have found their actual resting places in National Cemeteries.
In 1865 troops were sent out to various battle grounds and preexisting Corps hospitals to find Union graves and to re-inter them at the new National Cemeteries. Some still had primitive headstones, others didn't or could not be read and were unfortunately buried in Unknown graves. I have found that if a soldier was from a well to do family, usually an officer, they could afford to have the body shipped back to Maine or if not, the family would place a "memorial" headstone in their family cemetery in Maine. Is his stone in Maine a Military headstone or a family headstone?

I noticed you left a flower on Adam White's Find A Grave site. Are you related to him?
I am he is my Great Great Grandfather on my mother's side?
I was wondering if you know where in the cemetery his grave is located. I am planning a trip and I would like to visit his and his wife Magdelena's grave.

I only saw Pres. Hinckley once in person. I was a teenager and he was an apostle, in the early 1980s. He was extremely friendly and seemed to genuinely care for strangers he met on the street. I've never seen Pres. Monson in person. I do have a letter from Pres. Benson. My senior year in HS was BOM and our stake seminary had a fancy scroll made up saying that we'd all read it. We all signed it. He wrote back and we each got a copy of the letter.

I saw a flower you left for President Hinckley and figured you had to be a member. Just thought I'd say hi. Take Care & God Bless

Last name on both should be "Chaney" not Eaton.
(I'm working on two families, and w/o looking got it wrong here).

Thanks, again, Rebecca, for this photo. I searched for quite awhile to try to find her in a census or just anything, with no luck. Now, we know she was only 2 yrs, and probably not recorded anyplace else. To learn her parentage from a cemetery listing is great. She is now remembered and with family. winnie

My, thanks so much for the photos on these two memorials; great work. I'm amazed that the stones are in good shape except for the dark lichen/fungus stuff on the stone, which makes Anna's especially difficult to read, although I can make out her name. Do you happen to have the inscription, i.e. date of death? age, etc.(or can read it) that you could note under the photo description page?
If not, that is okay. Just glad to get a photo of it. You are fast. winnie

Thanks very much, Rebecca, for the nice photos you got for my requests. I appreciate all the time and effort you volunteers put in to fulfill our requests. It adds so much to these old graves, some of which are posted without dates.

What wonderful pictures of the headstones and the cemetery! Thank you so much for posting them.
Their son, Jesse, would be my great, great grandfather. I was surprised how legible they still were. Thanks again, Sherry

Thank you so much for your wonderful photos. Rosilla was a missing part of my Barker photos, so you have helped considerably. It is wonderful to see her resting place. Also, your profile page is inspiring. Thank you for your all your help and for being a valuable asset to Find A Grave. These old, old cemeteries are very valuable to families doing genealogy research. Photos are a big help in preserving the records, as in time the stones will probably fade away due to age and weather. Again, THANK YOU!

Thank you, so much, for your photos of the gravestones for Samuel Butterfield and his wife, Hannah (Chandler) Butterfield.
It is wonderful to be able to see their resting place. Also, your profile page is inspiring. Thank you for that and for all you to do help people find their ancestors.
God bless you.

Nice to know that the hurricane effects subsided so that you could photograph Goodrich gravestones in East Wilton Cemetery. Good job! Thanks.
