Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt.

I don't do estimated birth years. The relatives of the dearly departed not only could get the date of death wrong on the monument but the age at death. Too many people take anything they find on the Internet as gospel, and I will not contribute to that bad habit.

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship. I will not transfer out of guidelines. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. Use the edit system. Too many people have requested out-of-guidelines transfers and then never added so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.

I WILL NOT link to a "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.

If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.

My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.

Sources for additional memorial information include:
Suggest A Correction, NEHGS,,, NARA, other on-line sources, personal library, obituaries, newspaper items, etc.

Presenter of Betty Allen Chapter DAR and Friends of Lilly Library sponsored "Celestial Residents Walking Tours": Bridge Street Cemetery (Northampton), Park Street Cemetery (Florence), Spring Grove Cemetery (Florence), West Farms Cemetery (Florence) and a virtual tour of "The Celestial Residents of Chesterfield".

RE: Adobe Flash?
Sorry, not "report tech" It's "tech support" that you said that you are not.

RE: Adobe Flash?
Thank you for replying. "I am not Find a Grave's report tech" sounds a bit sarcastic! As if you think everyone should know all the ropes and why don't they. I get my feelings hurt easily. It might be just as easy to say "I suggest you call Find-a-Grave's report tech." wouldn't it? I mean, I didn't know there was such a thing.

Edits for Harold J March

I hope you are doing well.

I received your edits for Harold. Thank you. I have just verified them and will be accepting them as soon as I finish this note.

I was wondering if you were related. I am not, and would be happy to see Harold and his wife with family.

Take care.

RE: Mary Tower
Thanks for your messages. I appreciate it. I have Corbin myself, but if you want to cite it, it could help others.

RE: Wrong photo
I was not successful at enhancing the image but at least I was able to straighten it.

RE: Wrong photo
It's difficult to read, but Mary's inscription is at the very bottom of the stone and very close to the ground. For this reason, Cummington Vital Records (Streeter and Morris 1959) give the location of both Stephen and Mary as Row 15, marker 16.

If the photograph is still in my camera I will try to enhance it and repost with a better image (and one that is rotated upright!).

Thank you for contacting me. If I've misunderstood what you feel needs to be done, please let me know.
