Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in the mid-west all my life and have been an x-ray technologist for over 35 years. I found the Find A Grave website back in 2000 while helping my daughter research a school project. At the time, the more I explored Find A Grave the more disappointed I became that some of the famous individuals that were posted did not have a personal photograph in addition to their gravesite displayed. In the process of trying to locate photos for Find A Grave I have learned a lot about many of the individuals that it has been my pleasure to honor. History has always been a passion for me and Find A Grave has helped satisfy my curiosity tremendously.

Paul Pender d. 2003
Paul Pender is reported to be buried at St. Joseph Cemetery in West Roxbury. My parents and several aunts, uncles, and cousins are also buried there.

However the staff at this cemetery are not just hostile to volunteers but to anyone who asks for information. Recent encounters indicate they are passing out false information if they know you are volunteering for Find a Grave. There new policy is to charge $10 to give the location and another $10 for a map showing where the lots are because there are very few visible lot markers.

Anyone in the Boston area over 60 knows Paul Pender just by the name. The staff at St. Joseph's says they have no record of him. I checked with Mt. Benedict across the street and they were helpful in checking their records and some of the nearby cemeteries but without any luck. Unless you have a death notice or record, I will check out Paul's death record at the Mass. Vital Records office. That should at least tell who the funeral director was and if so, I will find out where he is buried. I know some cemeteries have private burials and even the staff does not the information. This is not the case with St. Joseph.

If you have concrete proof he was buried in St. Joseph, I would appreciate knowing the funeral director so I can request the location.
Thank you,
Moe

Re: Your photo of William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy
Hello Ron,

Thank You,

Dickey Chapelle
Hi Ron.
The photo you've posted of Dickey Chapelle was actually taken in 1959 in Milwaukee covering Marines on "Operation Inland Seas" celebrating the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway.

Urban Shocker
Urban Shocker was a right handed pitcher. The picture you have posted on his memorial is a lefty. I'm not sure if that's a mirror image but if you could please replace the picture. Thanks

Princess Louise
Hi Ron, The photo of the stout woman who appears on Princess Louise of Saxe-Coburg's memorial is actually her sister Princess Helena. Louise was always fearful of becoming fat like her mother and sisters, so she dieted and exercised her whole life....She was fit and attractive till the end....Hope you don't mind my writing, but I thought you may want to make the correction...Thank you for all your contributions!

Robert Palmer is cenotaph in Switzerland
Robert Palmer is buried in London, England. Although there was a Memorial Service for Robert Palmer in Lugano, Switzerland, he was interred in a private cemetery in London, England. This was done at the request of his family. Robert Palmer's parents, Anna and Leslie Palmer, his brother, Mark Palmer, and four of his children, James, Jane, Anna and Tony do reside in England, and did not want to have to travel to Lugano, Switzerland, to visit his gravesite. The location of the gravesite remains private
