Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please DO NOT send a request for me to link a memorial to yours if your memorial is "burial unknown".

I have been doing gene research for about five years and have an extensive tree on Ancestry.com. My kin come mainly from the Northeast, Canada, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I am a Maker, a Parker, a Harvey, a Heath and a Kemp. I have extensive roots in Cutler, ME and Merrimack, NH.

I love wandering old places and especially graveyards. One's name may never been written previously or since, one's life never recorded other than the engraving on the stone.

"To gather up the records of the past and present, and faithfully transmit them to the future, is a duty which one generation owes to another." - The Rev Ira C Tyson, Bedford, NH 1885

Many of the memorials I have created are for family members, but once I get to a graveyard I photograph many stones and add them here as well. I am thorough and link memorials when the data is on the stone or if I have uncovered it in my personal research. I do not see these memorials as my property and will gladly transfer non-relatives to anyone with more info, a relationship, or more care. I will gladly and quickly make changes/additions/link relations upon request also.

Please feel free to use my pics without request as you wish. I took them for you! My camera takes awesome pics that I need to shrink in order to upload them to findagrave; if you would like a copy of the better pic emailed to you please ask - it really tickles me to find a pic someone has been looking for.

Many other contributors are playing a numbers game and I think they have lost sight of the purpose: documentation. If you are too busy to make requested changes in order to properly document one's LIFE, if you enter the bare minimum of info when more data is readily available, if it is all about entering one more name, please be gracious when one asks for a transferal of the memorial. Nobody is going to list how many memorials you created on YOUR memorial! 100 thorough, family-linked memorials are better than 126,000 half-assed name listings with death date years - but only in my opinion.

Some folks on FAG are re-creating their family tree here which is JUST SUPER if they know where they are all buried. The problem is that they often add memorials without burial information in order to be able to link other memorials together. I take photos to document a grave, and I search the same cemetery on FAG for the name before creating a new memorial. I do NOT search all of FAG because I know darn well where they are buried - so If I duplicate a memorial that one of you idiots list as "no cemetery" then forgive me for not considering my memorial a duplicate.

That being said, there are many contributors here that truly care that these memorials matter. They spend hours in graveyards and on their computers to ensure that these folks are not forgotten. In their profiles there is no mention of the website rules. All they ask is that we care. I do.

Hi Amy
You sent me this message but I think maybe included the wrong memorial number?


Hi Mark,

check out this memorial: the dates are weird, but maybe this is your Sarah, wife of David?

Amy

The number you sent was: Find A Grave Memorial# 6020518

K. Stockman
Emily A. Stockman
Hi,

While I have been trying for years to locate a relative named John Stockman, I came across the memorial you have for Emily A. Stockman (#113587285) in Canterbury Cemetery, Northwood, NH. I noticed the information on the parents you transcribed and immediately thought of family I have buried in Floral Park Cemetery in Pittsfield, NH (#44876174). Emily is not someone I have been aware of, but my family buried in Pittsfield are Eben K. Stockman and Ann Judith Bennett Stockman. Both were born in Northwood and while this is a longshot, I am wondering if you happen to know anything else about Emily A., or if you just happened to be kind enough to document her gravestone.

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

Hi Amy,

Are you related to Robert and Sarah? I was wondering if you would possibly like to add some more history to their memorials? If so I can send it. Also if you are then we are related somehow.

Thanks,

Mark Peebles

Amy: thank you for your offer of help in locating his burial location. On his memorial, I have added information and highlighted some areas that might be clues to his burial location. Since you are familiar with Carroll County, you probably know where various sites are located. Also, he may be in an ummarked grave on his old homestead - please see his memorial. I appreciate any help you can offer.
