Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in central Massachusetts with my wife Barbara. Formerly the Director of Operations at a Worcester Mass. facility, I am now retired, leaving me much more time for prowling through graveyards!
I particularly like discovering and photographing old gravestones, and consider myself very fortunate to be living in New England where so many of the early settlers are buried. I also try to photograph as many graves of veterans I come across, from those who fought in the Revolutionary War through the present time.

My objectives are two-fold:

1.When I post photos of their graves on Find A Grave, along with as much bio information as I can gather about them, I feel that I am honoring their lives, in some small way.
2. I want to capture as many of these old stones on disk before acid rain, vandalism, snowplows, and whatever obliterates them forever!
(Being a graveyard junkie, however, I am apt to take a picture of any interesting grave that catches my eye...regardless of the era)!

Links for Hannah Fairbanks
Hi Jim! What wonderful work you are doing here at findagrave.com I was noticing your memorial for Hannah Fairbanks, who is the daughter of my 7th great grandmother, Mary Hayward, by her first husband, Jonathan Fairbanks. Jonathan and one of Mary and Jonathan's other three daughters, Grace, were killed during an Indian raid on Lancaster. Jonathan and Grace are buried together and are the subject of your memorial #6238433. You have set up proper links for them, likely in response to someone else's request for edits. Hannah is your memorial #62384343, and I wonder whether you would be kind enough to link Hannah's memorial to her sister, father, and mother. I hate to see her separated from her family! Again, many thanks for all that you are doing for everyone touched by your memorials. All my best to you, Susan

RE: Sarach Batcheller
OK, I sent a request to the other guy to delete his memorial. I told him all his information was transferred. Let's see if he does.
I tried to delete it, but couldn't because I didn't create it.

Could I get away with saying "Ditto" because of the emails I already sent? ;)
Thank you,
