Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I manage someone you are related to, send me a note using the "EDIT tab." I will transfer the memorial to you if I'm not a descendant.

However, if I've already completed extensive research on the deceased, by adding links and a biography, there is no need for a transfer. I myself use the great Find A Grave feature "Virtual Cemeteries." This is a wonderful way to keep track of family memorials managed by others. And anyway, why would you want to ask for a transfer if the memorial has an accurate biography and links? I'm sure you would not wish to take credit as author of the biography already written by me. 😀

I'm happy to add additional "sourced" information to memorials I manage, and grateful for any corrections to errors I may have made.

Please use the EDIT tab if you find an error in my research, or if you wish to add information. If your edit can be verified with records, I will include a link to your profile page, and give you credit for corrections or additions.

I'm Grateful to Volunteer my time 😀
Shari

Here is a nice website for calculating the birth date from stones that list only death date and age at death. Before you use the calculator, please read the fine print at the bottom of the page, which begins with; While doing some testing on this with 30+ death certificates already containing a birth date, death date, and age, I have found it to be only 39% accurate. It was 1-3 days off 38.5% of the time and more than 3 days the remaining 22.5%

THIS IS A CEMETERY
Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.

Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.

Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life; not death, of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering, always.

May Angie Miller Dodge and William Morgan Oliver Dodge
Hello Shari,
William Morgan Oliver Dodge is my 3rd great-grandfather, and May Angie Miller Dodge is my 2nd great-grandmother. I was wondering (hoping) if you have a picture of, or know where in Greenwood Cemetery, May Angie Miller Dodge headstone is located? Also, do you have a copy of William Morgan Oliver Dodge's death certificate? Any help you can give me would be GREATLY apprecited! Thank you!

RE: Gay Tiernan: 36941009
good afternoon!

Sorry for the delay in responding. I will go back and check my sources. I admit I believe her birthdate was from the bolling ancestry page. As for her birthplace, I believe it was from a Gay Mont research book at the Garden Club of Virginia but I will confirm.

Certainly you can remove them until I verify them if you like.

thanks!

RE: Florence Gottula: 39920613
No need to transfer her to me ... I'm not related, either. I'm working on the Sacher and Fencl family names for a relative of my husband ... and that's where the Gottula name comes in. I usually just send the links as I come across obits. and marriage records.

RE: Florence Gottula: 39920613
Yesterday there were two spouses for Samuel Gottula, and they both showed maiden name of (Sacher). I created the memorial for Florence Genevieve (Sacher) Gottula, and I sent the message to you for correction. I see now that the younger Florence has been changed to maiden name Ullman, and she is linked to Bernard Gottula. Thank you ... the incorrect entry has been corrected!

RE: Mary Sim: 55614540
My son has a more recent and specific mitochondrial DNA report on "23 and me" which I will attach to Mary Sim on ancestry (and all the others on that line). I could send it by email to you if you would like. My first cousin once removed on the maternal line also has a report with identical findings that I may be able to attach to the tree. I am thinking we share the same interest in helping others find their ancestors. Find a grave helped me so much to make a connection which I could then follow up with documents, when documents alone failed. I think DNA will be just as useful, every tool helps but only if we share the information. I appreciate the work you and others have done documenting so many cemeteries it is invaluable https://www.23andme.com/published/ancestry/maternal/026e2450e37ac360/976686208950793c/?utm_source=oonagi&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=maternalhap

RE: Mary Sim: 55614540
Sorry I didnt explain very well. I am a direct maternal line descendant. So my mitochondrial dna is the same as hers and my sons. My sons mitochondiral dna test is shown at the bottom of each direct ancestor on the maternal line. My tree on ancestry is public but only ancestry members can view it. If you don't feel comfortable with it though no worries.

RE: Lydia Cushing
Shari,
Thank you for getting back to me. Using the same name is a nightmare. Just a side note, we must be related! We both go back through the Cushings. Zebulon was living on Fox Island and met his second wife there. Fox Island is now North Haven. I'm not sure where she died, but I think probably in Ma before he moved here.
I saw a message to you about Sophronia Layr? I happen to know there is a Sopronia Layr, buried in the Lakeview Cemetery in Union, ME. She was married to Henry A Layr. Layr-Lehr-Leigher-Lear is my family line, Peter Lehr is my first Patriot for DAR. Is this the one your were looking for? I'll give you the infor just in case. Sophronia Ann Colby b18 May 1846,Somerville, ME, d 6 Apr 1881 in Union. Md Henry Layr 17 Nov 1867 Washington, ME. Henry b 4 Jul 1841 Washington, ME., d 15 Sep 1909 in Boston, MA. 2 Children Anne F b1868 and Mabel V b 1874.
Nice meeting and Thank again for updating.

Wife of Zebulon Howland
Shari,

You have Zebulon's wife, as Lydia Cushing, with the wrong parents. God only knows that all of the women were named Lydia, so it isn't hard to do. I sent all my paperwork into the Mayflower, only to find out I had the wrong Lydia. Zebulon wife Lydia's father was Elijah Cushing, son of Nehemiah Cushing. It seems that Elijah died young, his widow re-married to Elijah Brown, who moved the family to RI. When Elijah died he left a will and record on Hannah Barker (her mother) and her children and how her prior husband's father Nehemiah Cushing, left his grandchildren property and it lists them including Lydia Howland.

Needless to say I didn't get into the Mayflower yet.
