Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 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.

I've decided to keep an open mind. Fred was quite a bit older than Eunice and (You have to think of the era) and it is possible that they sheltered my young teenage ears from the previously married info.
Please send me the info.

Oh and the memorial that I have Fred Aldrich was married to Eunice Sarah Derby.

The daughter belongs to the other Fred Aldrich...or somebody else. But not to the memorial that I put up.
Thanks Again,

There were 2 Frederick Robert Aldrich living in Vermont at the same time. My Fred Aldrich was born in 1881. The other Frederick Aldrich was born in 1880. My Fred Aldrich was born in Vermont. The other Frederick Aldrich was born in New Hampshire.
My Frederick Aldrich raised my father (read bio) and I knew both he and his wife Eunice very well. They did NOT have any children (read bio). I put photos on both of their memorials.
I hope this clears things up.
Thanks for your quick response.

I stand corrected
Sorry, just found the marriage record of Olive Wilkins Wallace. She actually did marry an Enoch Gerald several months before she died. So please ignore my previous message.

Olive Wilkins Wallace
On the 1860 census Olive Wallace is living with her daughter Fanny in West Boscawen, Merrimack, New Hampshire, and is still listed as Olive "Wallace." She died in 1861. When did she marry Gerald Enoch? I believe this is a mistake.

Hi Amy
I noticed on the memorial for my gr gr great grandfather, Nathan Batchelder Find A Grave#89622551 buried in the Monroe Village Cemetery, that you have his mother listed as Elizabeth Marston. I was wondering if there is any source that says that she was his mother? I have his mother as Hannah Southworth Batchelder who is also buried in the same cemetery as Nathan. Hannah was married to James Batchelder but not the Capt James Batchelder who died during the Civil War. Hannah's husband James died in Greenville, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire in 1824. Hopefully someday I can find his grave also. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
