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).

RE: Isaac Proctor
Sounds like a plan :) I am in Lowell so really not that far from either. But I am not a winter cold weather person at all so looking for headstone will have to wait for warmer weather for me. I'm sure we'll find them and then will be able to remove them from one or the other cemetery. Denise.

Isaac Proctor
Hi Patrick, I got your SAC about Isaac. And do remember this. I have a photo request in for both him and his sister Anna over at Fairview in Westford. The Westford VRs have them there with the parents. I had a problem with the person who create the ones over in Heart Pond years ago. (I think he asked for a transfer, which I said no, so he created dupes of the whole family over there) I know there is a pic on the ones at Heart Pond but I think it was actually taken at Fairview. He also took pics of the parents headstone and posted them same day. I can not see a reason why the two children would be buried in Chelmsford when the family was living in Westford. (well actually anything is possible, but not really probable). Hopefully someone will find them in Fairview. Or when the weather is warm again I may even head over the Heart Pond and see if I can find them there. Denise.

John J. Cashman-Lowell Ma.

I am researching family and noticed you listed the above person. This is my Maternal great-Grandfather. I have his W.W.I army picture and his draft card.I was just wondering if he was a relation in your family tree? You also listed "Isobel" buried in St.Pat's. This is my Great-Aunt, who was a "spinster" and lived with her sister,Francis,until her death. She raised my dad, Alden Peabody and his brother,John,in Lowell Ma. due to family issues.
Just figured I would touch base and see is there was a connection.

Thanks for the photos!

P.S. I,too, have a passion for wandering graveyards and taking photos. They are an untapped wealth of info and artistic beauty.

Burke's in St. Pat's Section N, Lot 25A, grave 4

Hi Patrick,

Today, If found/photographed a Burke Family flat marker at Section N, Lot 25A, grave 4. I've asked the original requestor if she wanted me to post those photos. I did a close-up and an area photo of the flat "Burke" marker. No other names on it. If she wants me to post them, I'll add them to your PR's as well.


Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Gilligan's in general
I am researching Gilligan's in New England, I am sure many early ones that I am related to existed in MA ME NH (most were in NH) Trying to link up other possible families. So, if in my research, I run into any you have in St Patrick's in Lowell, MA (Some lived there too) I will contact you with any info.
