Bio and Links
Bio Photo Junior genealogist - with an email address, a car and a digital camera.

Photos I take belong to the people who ask for them. You are free to do whatever you wish to with them. I ask that they not be published on pay-to-view sites.

I want to thank everyone who has stepped up and offered corrections or taken transfers for the cemeteries I've been working, it's been a rewarding experience.

I am in the process of visiting all of Danvers cemeteries and ensuring they are fully catalogued. I am only posting fresh photos when I think mine are better or show something different. If you object, drop me a line and we can chat.

Not sure what I am doing now, I appear to be chasing my relatives through Middlesex county and trying to sort them out. There does not seem to be a driving theme to that other than seeing who I stumble across in records and cemeteries and where they fit in the larger picture. I am not a direct descendant of most of them, but I am geographically local to them so there is some kind of logic to this in the larger scheme.


I do take breaks and handle occasional photo requests - if you have a location, that makes it a lot more tempting. It's a challenge to walk a large cemetery looking for two headstones and then have 4 more requests for the same cemetery a week later.

I trim my messages and only leave those that I need to do something about - I'm not hating you, just trying to use the messages to advantage. (Although I think I will keep the message from Billie forever - such an inspiration)

Currently between laptops, all my "todo" notes are on the old one, new one doesn't have room for so many photos.

Complete: (Using Mass Vital Records numbering)
GR1 Wadsworth - added some 400 memorials and photos.
GR2 Nurse (checked - was complete)
GR3 Endicott (checked - was complete)
GR4 Preston (tucked away behind Putnam - added a few (NEEDS TO BE RE-DONE - MISSED A LOT)
GR5 Prince (catalogued and photographed)
GR6 Putnam (catalogued and photographed)
GR7 Russell (checked - added a few missing ones)
GR8 Porters Burying Ground (High street - added a few)
GR13 Hutchinson (catalogued and photographed)
GR14 (Tapley / Preston) Old Settlers - (Photographed)
GR15 Putnamville (checked - was complete)
GR16 Swin(n)erton (checked - was complete)
GR20 Buxton/Goodale (checked - was complete)
(GR7/Beverly in MVR) Leech/East Danvers (checked - was complete)

In Progress
GR11 Walnut Grove - Starting with Section A
GR9 Holten - fair sized
Completely photographed. need to clean up 53 photos. ~1400 added to date.
Some of the photos are less than optimal. I've noted many of them to re-take, I trust I don't miss any - let me know if you find a horrible one that should be re-taken.
??? St Mary Sylvan St - moderate size, but Catholic, so every headstone has 20 names.
??? Xavierian (waiting for SJP to file obits to add remaining 200+ photos) - perhaps a student project?

In Queue
??? Danvers State Hospital - finally found it!
??? Anshe Sfard - there are about 10 cemeteries back in those woods
??? Annunciation - Large

Defunct - exist in records, but not on the ground.
??? Potter's field (off Adams street, empty lot behind St Mary's, but no headstones)
??? Porter Cemetery (not on FaG, off locust street, near Connors farm) - Although I have seen recent clues as to a cemetery near here - it still evades me, but then the location given for Potter's field was way off.
GR17 Pedricks Cemetery (not on FaG) (behind the high school I suppose accessible from the Rail Trail, only has one headstone which I gather has since vanished)
GR10 Putnam (off Sylvan street, bodies moved to Porter's ca. 1920)
GR12 Jacobs private burial ground, Gardner's Hill (have not found)
GR21 Pope private burial ground, Pope's Lane, Danvers Centre (have not found - it should be back by Hutchinson)

RE: Charles P Trask
Thanks. None of those buried with him look familiar to me. I looked at the census records I had for him and saw none of those names as well. I will have to keep hunting. Looks like this is a large cemetery so maybe he still might be there.

RE: Charles P Trask
That could be. I have him dying on Jan 12 1896. This has burial date as being a year later plus 2 days. Would you happen to know if a wife Susan may be near by? she died in 1871.

RE: Fielding family
I've had the memorial owner change the spelling of Louis to Lewis on the memorial that is linked to Mattie Putnam Fielding Trask Burns. Mattie and Lewis had a daughter Irene but I have found no evidence of any other children. I believe the other Lewis Trask listed in the online records for Walnut Grove is an error so I have requested that his memorial be removed as a duplicate. Any further insight you can offer would be appreciated.

George Armor, Holten Cem., Danvers, MA
Hello, Jack,
You questioned why I put a Memorial for George Armor in Holten Cemetery, Danvers. I put it there because that is where his obituary said the graveside services were. You said you could not find a stone for him. Perhaps there was never a stone erected in his memory. OR it might be confusion because his obituary spelled the name two ways - Armor and AMOR.
Thanks for the inquiry.

RE: Luther Newton
Greetings Jack,

While I share the same last name as Luther Newton, he is not a relative. I found info about him while searching for some of my lost kinfolk.

RE: Andersonville
re: Israel Parker who died there Aug 2, 1864. Rank PVT Company G Unit 64 IL US INF

I looked him up on and found his widow's pension record. It says there that he was "Killed in action at Kennesaw Mountain Ga June 27, 1864". A different account says he was KIA on June 28. So he may not have died at Andersonville after all.

As far as I know, Andersonville is pretty much complete. Several people have been working on it for several years. Find A Grave Memorial# 51143721 belongs to N Shroyer, Co G 64th Illinois, d. 8/2/1864. I would think Israel Parker would be buried near him if he is actually buried there.

RE: Thanks!
Yes--Elizabeth Parker (1692-1760; m. Daniel Bodwell 14 Feb 1693) is my 7th great grandmother. I show her father as Steven Parker (b. 1651 in Andover) and mother as Mary Marston (b. 1655 in New Hampshire). Unfortunately, I don't have anything further back on the Parker side.

I'm sorry, I don't have any information on Mr. Parker. I believe I added him to from an obituary or death notice.
