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.

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.

Lyman James
I would appreciate any help with Lyman James, Find A Grave # 41285493. You list him buried at Goshen Center Cemetery, Goshen, MA with no birth date and a death date of 16 Dec 1830. I also find Lyman James, born 23 Mar 1796 in Goshen, MA, died 16 Dec 1830 in Huntsville, AL and buried at Bellefonte Cemetery, Bellefonte, AL under Find A Grave # 20482857 with a headstone. I am trying to figure out if this is the same Lyman James and wondered if you had information that he was buried at Goshen Center Cemetery or if this was a memorial to him. Thanks for your help.

RE: Estimated birth years
I searched the dates not based on the book but on their death records.

RE: Identifying monuments on cemetery map
I used to live in Florence--for 20 years--but have spent the past 8 years in Asheville, NC.

I am looking at the graves closest to Park Street/fence. If you have an email address, I could upload a copy of the pic with the monument circled.

I was just wondering if you have any requirements for using your pictures. I usually copy photos to my Ancestry Family Tree and give credit to the Find A Grave volunteer.

Moses Fisk
I added the memorials of 1st wufe Emily Lucretia Todd and 2nd wife Martha Pratt to the memorial for Moses Fisk. You noted the dates of the marriage intentions for both marriages; could you provide me with the source information for those entries so I can add them to the information on his memorial.

Photo of Henrietta Bryan Lambie
Greetings, PK. Thank you for posting the photo of Henrietta Bryan Lambie on her memorial page. I belong to a Lambie consortium, some of whom are related to Henrietta and her husband, Jasper. I would like to get in touch with the provider of the photo you cited, Betty Allen Chapter, to see if she is another cousin and also to ask permission to share the photo with the Lambie group. Would you be able to assist? Thank you for all your contributions to Find-A-Grave!

did some research at Hilltop and thought DAR might wish the details found...they are not absolute but very logical. Jonathan Beals #64880248.
Happy New Year!
