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.

RE: Chadbourne Cemetery
Hi Bill, I have removed all of my pictures from in Standish. Thank you again for letting me know. Most of them are my relatives in some way, but the only two I would like are my parents, if you don't mind...Willis L Emmons and Dorothy Louise Blanchard Emmons.

Thank you,
Janet Emmons Pringle

PS I am still looking for the other small Emmons plot in that area...I have a couple of requests.

Thank you again,

RE: Chadbourne Cemetery
Hi Bill, Thank you for letting me know. I do know it is in Lyman as my family had the first children so I do not know how I messed this up. I will fix it within the week.
Thanks again,

Your edit:
Death Place:

was declined as he died in Brookland, District of Columbia.

Did you mean to put this location for the place of birth?

Chadbourne Cemetery
I requested a photograph of Vernard Lord's headstone in Chadbourne Cemetery and you fulfilled my request just this last week. While I was adding it to my family tree I browsed through many of the internments at Chadbourne Cemetery and discovered several more of my relatives (and who knows how many more are there)- Barbara M Lord, Donald F. Lord, Neva R Merrill, Will R Merrill, Marguerite M Spence, and Ralph G Spence. It appears that you have added photographs of all these headstones just this past week. I want to send you many, many thanks for spending time taking all these photographs unrequested. You are providing such a wonderful and thoughtful service for those of us working on our family trees. I am so grateful.

Vernard Lord
Thank you once again for giving of your time to search for and photograph the headstone of one of my relatives in York County, Maine. You seem to be my "go-to guy" in that area. I appreciate your help.

Morrison Family Cemetery
Bill, I just wanted to thank you for photography this little family cemetery of 5 headstones. I'd love to know how you found it. Are you related? The 2 parents in this cemetery are my 2x great grandparents. I knew very little about them except that the family was from the Shapleigh/Sanford/Springvale area. By you providing the photos of these 5 little stones, I was able to fill in the blanks of dates of birth and death for 5 of the family members. I also found another son who died at the age of 6 that no one seemed to know about. He has the same name of another son born a few years after his birth. I am not looking for a transfer, I just wanted you to know how important these 5 little pictures in this little obscure cemetery is to me and that your work is so appreciated. Since you have given permission to use the photos in you bio, I have done so and have added your name as photo credit on each one. Many thanks, Shirley Burchfield
