Bio Photo Amateur photographer in Massachusetts who has always enjoyed wandering through cemeteries and taking photos. Discovery of Find A Grave now gives me an excuse to get out with my camera and take photos.

And yes, my profile image is indeed from an actual headstone in the Forefathers Burial Ground of Chelmsford, Massachusetts for Oliver Fletcher (d.1771) (Find A Grave Memorial# 18168422).

Ammi Ruhamah Faulkner
Per your request I am asking you for permission to use your very good photo of Ammi Ruhamah Faulkner on his page in my Schram Family tree on line at

I only wish that I had the time and money to visit every grave site that my ancestors who ever lived I would be happy. But thanks to people like you and me. (I have a pet project for the cemetery in Bellevue, MI. They have a cemetery called Riverside Cemetery, but it is called Bellevue Cemetery on Find A Grave. It's really a time consuming project of which my room mate does not understand my compulsions to do it.)

Thank you,

Jodie Schram Jenks

RE: Elizabeths Parker
FYI, I swapped out the photo for one I took.

Elizabeths Parker
Regarding your suggestion to merge #135948346 with #18168942, I would suggest that these are for two different people, as both the parents and spouses disagree. The confusion likely arises from the fact they appear to have died in the same year. Based on additional digging I have done in Ancestry, I would further suggest that:

1.) The photo on the latter is the headstone of the former. Read the inscription. Wife of Benjamin (not Ebenezer). Died aged 69y 1m 10d --> puts DOB in 1696

2.) The former, Elizabeth (Warren) Parker (1696-1765), is my 7GGM, daughter of Joseph Warren & Ruth Wheeler, and wife of Benjamin Parker (1699-1773). The latter, Elizabeth (Parker) Parker (1691-1765) was the daughter of Lt. Moses Parker and Abigail Hildreth (my 1C10R and 9GGA, respectively) and the spouse of Ebenezer Parker (my 1C9R).

3.) The two husbands were 1st cousins, both grandsons of my 9GGF Jacob Parker.

4.) Ebenezer Parker and his wife Elizabeth (Parker) Parker (1691-1765) were 2nd cousins, both great-grandchildren of John Parker (1591-1630).

5.) Re the 11 day delta between the death date of 12/19/1765 on the tombstone of Elizabeth (Warren) Parker and the date of 12/30/1765 listed in the records, this coincides with the 11 days dropped in 1752 when the Julian calendar gave way to the Gregorian calendar. Not proof, but strongly suggestive.

What gives you the right to take pics of MY relatives headstones and then say not to use going to try and complain to findagrave.

I suspect both dates are relevant. He was KIA, so he likely died in '45 and his body returned home in '48. So many of the WWII burials are recorded in the database in the late 1940s for this very sad reason. If I can get there, I'll grab a photo.

RE: John Bork
You're welcome - yes, but right on the edge of Yard 2 so I wasn't confident sending you the edit.

You're very welcome, I'm glad it was of interest to you! My grandfather was a classmate of your grandfather's at Georgetown, and I believe they may worked together for a short time. Thank you for your nice message!

I'm so glad you welcomed the additional photos... I never know when I should or shouldn't, some people might take it as a criticism and I'm so glad I did because you appreciated it.

I'm just free lancing around A and AA section trying to get as many flat stones as I can because they are all sinking. :( You can pay $50 to get them cemented up but most of the graves have no family left to do that.

I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to venture out in the winter to take pictures. We get lots of snow here. I wish I knew how to get a group together to help uncover the truly buried stones. It is very sad that some won't ever see a family member's grave.
