|Bio and Links|
I grew up in Lexington, MA, which may explain in part my interest in colonial history. I retired a few years ago after 20 years as a computer programmer. I generally photograph colonial cemeteries or at least the oldest sections of them. I studied early New England history in the 90s. My cousins got me interested in genealogy a few years back. I've always loved photography. |
I would like to thank everyone who has offered corrections and additions as any new information makes the memorials that much better. I always want more info.
Please, when offering corrections or additions, include the memorial number as I have created thousands.
And look at the rules set down by Find a Grave before asking for transfers.
Don't fuss about spellings. One person wants the modern version, another person wants an older versions. I can't please everyone.
I usually do all requests within 24 hours.
Feel free to use any of my photos. All I ask is that you credit me for taking them. Please email me if you're doing some for-profit thing. And do not post my photos from other websites to Find-a-Grave. Ask me to do it. Thanks!

|Nathan Haines||RE: John A. Tufts|
OK, thanks. I do the same.
Oh well, I tried. :-]
|Nathan Haines||John A. Tufts|
I saw the page you made for John A. Tufts. I am wondering if you are related to that family?
I was looking at old family bibles on EBay and saw one with record of John Tufts marriage in it and others in that family tree.
Then I went looking for someone who might be related in case they would be interested in this priceless old family bible.
Just search EBAY with this and you will find it=

Sorry about that! The memorial # is 24726849. It is a stone for the children of Jacob and Martha Manning. The photo's caption has Ebenezer as the father.

Marie and I went to New England National Historical Society Library many years ago and found a book on the Lexington Epitaphs and this is what was typed in the book, (if you look very close on the tombstone you can see how the name is spelled and other info
The entry in the book shows
Here lies the remains of
who departed this life December 11th 1768
In the 58 year of his age
Dear friends for me pray do no we
I am not dead but here do sleep.
Winthin this solid lump of Clay.
Untill the Resurrection day.
And here indeed I must Remain
Till Christ shall ris me up again
I didn't misspell any word they as stated in the book
we zerox Judi of Judi and Marie
