|Bio and Links|
Ever since I can remember, I have had a fascination with cemeteries. There was one right down the street from our school, we used to walk through it often, It was so peaceful and the monuments were so beautiful. My father Calvin Russell Swallow is buried there now. My sister Mel and I have gone back to Massachusetts and other New England States and explored the cemeteries looking for ancestors. Genealogy and searching cemeteries for family has been a treasured time with my sister. What a gift it is to have a sister to share your interests with.|
I am hoping to make connections with distant cousins and share pictures and stories. I have posted many branches to our tree to do this.
I AM VERY LIBERAL WITH TRANSFERING MEMORIALS. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE FOR EVERYONE (COPY THEM AT YOUR PLEASURE) AND I FEEL NO SENSE OF OWNERSHIP OVER MEMORIALS THAT ARE NOT MY FAMILY. I LOVE DOCUMENTING GRAVES. I AM SOMEWHAT OFFENDED BY THOSE WHO DO NOT SHARE THAT SENSE OF GIVING. WE GET NO POINTS IN HEAVEN BY HOW MANY MEMORIALS WE CONTRIBUTED TO FINDAGRAVE. THERE ARE MANY FINE CONTRIBUTORS TO FIND A GRAVE AND A FEW THAT NEED TO GET OVER THEMSELVES. Remember...."God Loves a Cheerful Giver"!!
A POEM FROM ALL OF US AVID GENEALOGIST'S!!
Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone. The name and dates are chiseled out on polished, marble stone. It reaches out to all who care; it is to late to mourn. You did not know that I exist; you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse not entirely on our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so.
I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. - Walter Butler Palmer 1906

I was looking on findagrave at my ancestor Thomas Prentice (the Trooper), memorial 7104445. On the same page I see a second gravestone with no details. I have been trying to find info on where his son Thomas Prentice Jr. (160313785) is buried. Could that be Thomas Jr.'s grave?
I plan to go to Conn. and Mass. on vacation in a couple of weeks and would love to find more ancestors' locations. (Of course, I hope they are actually located with Jesus.)
Thanks for the pictures!

I noticed your public message on someone who also fulfilled a photo request for me.
There are many Rhodes families but I have to ask
Are you in any way related to Eugene Manlove Rhodes, the western novelist ?
|Jan Summers||Rosalie Emma Barnum Cross|
Thank you for updating her memorial. I love your bio. You have succinctly captured what the spirit of Find A Grave should be. Best regards, Jan
|Don Littlepage||THANK YOU|
hi Star, Thank you for adding the headstone pic of John Littlepage. I made that stone. It isn't very good, but he didn't have one and I didn't think it was right. There is a story behind him not having one. May I manage memorial # 17972824 and his dad James Robert Littlepage memorial #17503463. Thanks again for adding the pic.

Star, you added two different cemetery photos for my 4X great-grandfather, David Shumway (one of the Massachusetts Minute Men.) Is one of them Lake Vale Cemetery in Belchertown - where is the other marker located?

|Bobbi Harrison||Rosa Bell Harrison Whitley|
Rosa Bell Harrison Whiteley was NOT a daughter of my husband's great-great-grandfather, John Harrison (1805-1861). Nor was he ever married to Emily Spangler Betts So she was not a sibling to James Harrison, Mary Harrison Holtsclaw, George Washington Harrison or my husband's great-grandfather, Edward Paxton Harrison. Someone has added these two females to our line incorrectly.
There were 3 distinctly, unrelated Harrison family lines in Hancock County in the same time period and someone has gotten confused and incorrectly added Rosa and her mother Emily to my husband's family line. So how do we get them removed from our family member memorials?
Hello Star. Thank you for all of your wonderful work on Find A Grave! Could you kindly transfer Lyman and Mary Cate (Find A Grave Memorial# 32256189 and 32256203) to me (#47507075)? They are from my home town and I am doing research on them and would like to add more info. (and be able to edit it later) which will be easier if I can manage them.
Thank you so much!

|Shelly Kilbury||Ethel Connor Johnson|
This was my paternal great grandmother. She and Charles adopted a little girl known as Ruth H. Johnson married name Kilbury born Feb 1906. I know nothing at all about my grandmother Ruth's back story and birth parents. There is a sister? named Genevieve Samuelson (I have found her parents) who married a Ray Johnson. I am not sure really what her real relationship was but my grandmother called her her sister. I am trying to build a family tree on WikiTree and can go no further without information on that branch of my birth father. Anyone that has any stories or information, I would be eternally grateful. Thank you!
