|Bio and Links|
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.

|Rick Weaver||RE: Hi Rick!|
You're welcome Amy - I only wish the photo could have been taken when there was some nice green grass around it. Remind me next spring to go out and get one that has some color!
|Jim Ottmer||Edward Camp b. 1842|
Thank you for creating this memorial. The last I knew, Edward was living in Norfolk, VA. I been trying to locate his grave there for several years. Who knew that he moved to NH in the last 3 years of his life. Again, thank you from the Camp family. Keep up the good work.
|Pam Ferguson||Charles Gage|
The Charles that should be linked to Daniel Gage, died in Lowell, MA on 10/29/1892. He is also Charles F. Gage, born 1816.
|Pam Ferguson||Deacon Charles Gage|
You have Charles Gage, born 1815 & died 1892, buried in Bedford Center Cem.,Bedford, NH linked to Daniel Gage as his father. I believe he is the son of William (Billy) Runnels Gage, as stated on Charles' death record in NH. This record can be found on Ancestry.com.
|Virginia D||James Wason|
Thank-you for the numerous links and additions to the Wasons, Caldwells, Adams, and Spauldings.
|Chelmsford Mark ||Re: Elizabeth (Warren) Parker|
Cancel my request on the photo. It turns out I had a copy in my library of headstone photos, which includes many from Forefathers in Chelmsford of likely kin.
|Chelmsford Mark ||Elizabeth Parker Parker|
Hi. The photo you have posted for Elizabeth (Parker) Parker #18168942 appears to actually be the headstone for my 7GGM Elizabeth (Warren) Parker #135948346, based on the info in the inscription relating to her husband and imputed birth year. I would request that you post a copy of the photo to the latter memorial. And consider deleting it from the fomer. Thanks!
|Barbara McAllaster-Corbin||memorial #98248900|
I can not thank you enough for having done this. Several years ago I searched in vain and to no avail. I am so grateful to have this of my 3rd. Great Grandfathers daughter!!
|Mary Ellen C||Franklin Cemetery|
Thanks for adding the info I sent for the Sinclairs & Stevens Families!
