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: Gladys Wood
Thank you too. Yesterday I found Gladys' father, so I will send you a SAC to link him, and then I think we're done. I appreciate your help.

RE: Gladys M. Clampit Wood
No further research needed. The date of death was a typo, not 21, but 12. Her year of birth is indeed 1899, which I muffed because of using her brother's year of birth, but it is indeed March 23. Thanks.

RE: John Ward
Thank you. It was confusing to find two memorials, one with connections, one without. I am surprised no one has also noticed the same.
Thanks again,
Nancy

Memorial #6991948 ... I wonder if you have any other photos of this stone ... it appears the name is Chafe and I can't make out the Day of death. Thanks for your help. ~Marcia

Person vs Grave
I think when posting the gravestone pics you chose person instead of grave for some reason - I wonder how many are like that beyond the Gleason's?

I cannot make new pic requests and then fulfill my own requests but I can take new pics and add them as 'grave' pics. Some will just have duplicate pics. And NONE have 'Person' pics ........as the memorial claims to have.......

RE: Gleasons in Hope Cemetery
Jim - there are pics of the individual stones ALREADY - I know they are bad - it is also a difficult spot/angle to get a good photo due to the light at that spot. I am so sorry but you are somehow missing my point. It's ok - just never mind. I will request the photos and retake them at some point and re-post them maybe - if I can accomplish that. Thank you anyway. Have a good day Jim - take care. -Mary
