Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Cambridge, Mass, 9/14/1948. Had an older sister who I never got to meet, premie. Had a younger brother and sister, both have since died and are entered here on FAG. Mom & Dad have been gone for some time, they're here too. Grew up in and graduated from Rockland, Ma. High school in 1966. Joined the Army right away (5 July 66) trained as a lab tech and Medic. First permanent duty station was the 3rd Field Hospital in Saigon. From there went to Germany. Served primarily overseas, 1 year in Vietnam, about 12 years in Germany, 1 year in Korea. Retired as an SFC (E7) in 1988. Married twice,first to a German gal, we're still friendly, 2d time, so far, for 36 years. Four kids from both marriages, 1 grandchild (20y) from the first and 6 (2-10y)from the second. After retiring I attended and graduated from Tampa, Fl college with an Assoc. degree. Since "retirement" have worked as a Medical Asst, Lab tech & phlebotomist, X-ray tech & currently doing medical billing as well as managing a couple of clinics. (This feels like a resume'). Have been doing genealogy for about 25 years and have a good size collection of info and can prove to 11 generations on my Mom's side. I enjoy putting my feet on the ground and doing research, including cemetery "stomping" and will help whenever I can to locate grave sites and stones.
UPDATE: Have finally "permanently retired". Now I am ready to spend more time stomping cemeteries. Unfortunately, living here in Maine this activity is seasonal, but when the weather is decent and the ground is not snow covered, I will be able to fulfill requests and add more cemeteries to FAG.

Anyone wishing to use my pictures for noncommercial uses may do so, please give appropriate credit. Many pictures that I have taken are of persons to whom I am NOT related. I take pictures of cemeteries and markers to ensure their preservation. If you are related and I am not and would like transfers, just ask.

Benjamin Stevens

Hello Bill,

Oops... I double checked... Mark is not a direct line descendant of James & Charity... he is a descendant of Benjamin Stevens (1776-1853) & Patience Merrifield (1780-1861) buried in Smithfield. Probably just distant cousins. ;)

Sincerely, Tim Cooper

PS - I just sent updates for Theodore's wife, Mary Boyd, daughter of James Boyd & Elizabeth Garland.

Elder James Stevens and Charity Rose

Hello Bill,

Thank you for the updates and links for Elder James Stevens. He is a direct line ancestor of my brother-in-law, Mark Stevens.

I was researching a Rose family last year... now it looks like I will be researching another branch of that tree.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper

Hillcrest Cemetery

My email seems to have gone wonky! I have finished all my entries for Hillcrest. I think I added about 1200 to the existing 90 that there were. Thank you for the edits/corrections you have sent.

Best regards,
The more we share, the more we know.

Transfers from Holy Family Cemetery, Rockland, MA
Hi Bill,
Thanks for all the great work you do on
Find A Grave. It is appreciated by many.
I'm wondering if you would consider transfers
that are not directly related to me, but are
my late sister-in-law's parents and family.
They are buried at the Holy Family Cemetery in
Rockland, Plymouth, MA.
The memorials that I would be interested in:
Harrison Hoban #133211367
Frances Hoban #133211746
James R. Bell #133211345
John R. Bell #133211359
Richard E. Bell #133211753
I have information and links that I would like
to add to the memorials. I understand if you
do not transfer.
Thank You,

Maddox Photos
Hey Bill,

Thanks a bunch for all the photos you've been taking at Hillcrest! A special thanks for fulfilling my requests for Jacob and Sarah Maddox. It's absolutely wonderful that you are willing to take time to help others. Hope this week's coming winter storms aren't too bad for you folks up in Maine.

Thanks again and best regards from the land of enchantment,
