Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

Declined Edit Request
As much as I can appreciate your dedication to make find a grave as accurate as possible, I do not feel that someone discovering personal family pet memorials and requesting a last name edit is necessary nor is it beneficial! Those are special only to the pet owners and I feel certain that no other member or anyone searching on find a grave would have a problem with the way I have listed that memorial. Please do not message me for any further edits regarding my pets. Thank you!

RE: Use of double quotes
Can you point out to me which memorials you are referring to? I don't know what you mean by double and single quotes and I don't know which memorial you are referring to.

Have a nice day,

RE: Sorry
I am not sure just what is going on here, but I abhor misuse of this site. Find A Grave is a wonderful addition to those who use it and misuse should be removed. Thanks for your support.

RE: Another glitch
Hiya, looks like another spreadsheet glitch here:; the first 39 have the surname in the wrong slot.

Not a glitch - I am working on the links and (for better or worse) chose to have them at the front of th eline. It is just taking much longer than planned - I hope to finish tonight - I though ti would take a couple of hours - more like 2 days! Howeverm they will be very accurate when done.

Thanks for noticing and caring

Boston Molasses Disaster
After reading your recent post in the forums, I decided to find out if there are more memorials for people who died in this disaster. These are some of the ones I found;

* William J. Brogan (#84345929)
* Bridget Clougherty (#84346227)
* Stephen A. Clougherty (#84347751)
* John Callahan (#84347983)
* William A. Duffy (#84345162)
* Peter Francis (#84344842)

I'll find more, if you're interested in adding them to your virtual cemetery.
