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)!

RE: James & Theodate Godfrey
Your welcome :) I have the Godfrey/Hobbs/Marston/Chipman family photo albums which were donated to my archive in 2005 .They range from 1850s to 1930s . Here's a pic of Theodate with her husband Capt Jonathan Godfrey
I am thinking there might be confusion between Mary and Theodate . Anyway nice going with your Findagrave activity . Great information


RE: James & Theodate Godfrey
Thanks for those photos. That is a remarkable clear photo of Theodate, considering that she died in 1839!a

RE: Sally Mower
Thanks Jim. I'd love to have a copy of those pages to take a look at. I'm assuming that the other Sally Mower set up is a duplicate. My email is I do appreciate your having set up these memorials, this makes the research a little easier from here in Maine. Keep up the good work - it is much appreciated!

Birth date incorrect
Sorry.. put in wrong subject.
Birth date off by 1 year for William Lane.
1 Jan 1722 should be 1723

CLC White
Death date wrong for William Lane
You have your birth date 1 Jan 1722 it is suppose to be 1 Jan 1723, also Cynthia Kaley has made the same tribute ten days after you made yours.

I added her first husband to yours, seeing yours was first. They both should be merged.
