|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.

|Diane Loso||RE: Heath Family|
Amy, You're very welcome. I've added the photos to the memorials. I've also added another Heath memorial, Rachel F Heath Wyatt daughter of Abram & Mary Heath. If you'ld like me to transfer the Heath memorials that I've created to you I'd be happy to, just let me know. Diane
|Ross A Peot||FAG 112418020 Amos Farnsworth|
Hi Amy. It's been awhile. This is Ross in Fredericksburg, VA. I have been looking at the Farnsworth. They are a lst cousin 6X removed.
The referenced Amos had a son by the name of Amos that you have listed under his children. The one you have listed only lived 3 years.
However, there is another. Major Amos born April 28, 1754 and died Oct 29, 1847. Might you have adventured across him?
I haven't had a chance to go through all these Farnsworths but there are many who fought in the Revolutionary War and I am after all that I can find. I am working on a project of all those who served in my family line. I'm at about 60 as we speak. Hope your fine and that you have a great Thanksgiving Day. Ross
|Diane Loso||Heath Family|
Hi Amy, If you will move the memorials for Frank & Mary "Lizzie" Heath to Oak Hill Cemetery in Northfield, NH I'll add pictures. I've added pictures to the memorials of their parents that you moved earlier. Also if you want to create memorials for Joseph & Caroline Heath's other 5 children in the same cemetery I'll add pictures to those memorials. Thanks, Diane
|Diane Loso||Charles & Etta Chamberlain|
Hi Amy, You have two memorials in the Evans Cemetery in Allenstown, NH, Charles J. Chamberlain & his wife Etta Heath Chamberlain, these two people are actually buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Northfield, NH. If you will transfer them to that cemetery I'll add pictures of their headstones to those memorials. Diane
|Lola Morse||RE: Whitchers in Franklin|
Hi Amy, Yes I am related. My mom is Gladys Mary Whitcher Morse; her father is George Edward Whitcher and her mother is Gladys Nora Hodge Whitcher. Are you related to a Whitcher also?
|M Backus||Thurber transfers|
Thanks very much for the Thurber transfers. This will be a great help to our family project. Your work, objectives and helpful policies truly define "Contributor" and exemplify the best of what Find A Grave should be.

|Bill and April||Franklin edits|
Sorry for inundating you with edits from Franklin Cemetery. We did two days of huge requests; Greeleys and Huntoons. Thank you for working through them when you get the opportunity! And thank you for the section and plot information on all the memorials. We have detailed maps from Kris now, so your info and his maps make for quick, productive visits. All the best, B&A
|Rachel Keller||Looking for Slowweb|
Amy: I see you have taken over a good number of memorials originated by Slowweb. I know he has connections to the Layman's in Minneapolis and was trying to locate him, but the memorials he posted in the cemetery I am working on Oak Hill have all been turned over to Find A Grave..His page has no email or public message drop..do you know him or where I can locate him? Thanks so much..Rachel
|Christopher Brooks||Rebecca (Wheeler) Minot|
Surprised and pleased to see your photo of this gal's g.s. in the Hill B.G. in Concord. She was "one of mine,", i.e., a Brooks descendant (dau. of Mary Brooks, dau. of Capt. Thomas Brooks, the emigrant progenitor, of Watertown and Concord). Didn't realize your photographic mission took you that far south! I have become pleasantly accustomed to running across your photographs in Sugar Hill's Sunny Side Cemetery.
|Mary Brown||RE: John Thompson Lyndeborough NH|
I have added a picture of family's general information sheet to John Thompson in hopes of finding more on family history. He had a brother named Andrew who came back from the revolutionary War and died of smallpox and a sister named Eleanor who lived to old age. I am looking for info on their parents. Thank you for this memorial.
