I was born in Northeastern Ohio, but I have lived in Mass. many years. I have been doing genealogy since 1961. It is a wonderful hobby and it pleases me if I am able to help someone find family or friends they have been searching for.
My special interest is in finding and making Memorials for Civil War Veterans. Much of the information for Beverly's (MA) Central Cemetery has been provided by Dan Driscoll, friend and Volunteer Genealogist at Beverly City Hall. Beverly Sexton has been of great help to me in the Bedford-Macedonia Cemeteries, Ohio.
Please notify me of any additions or corrections. I'll be happy to oblige. One thing- Photos of people that I have posted are meant to be enjoyed. I would appreciate it if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites. MHB
Margaret Alexander Conner (1795-1877) My name is Donna Keefer. I descend from Frederick Keefer who settled in the Little Cove area of Pennsylvania. A related line includes the Conners. I have come across your note on the Find A Grave Record for Margaret Alexander Conner (1795-1877). You make mention that her husband, James Conner, was previously married and note that Margaret mentions 3 Conner step-children in her will. Do you know the name of her husband' first wife? And is there any evidence of this first marriage which I can add to my file on the Conners. Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Donna Keefer

McDonalds in Ashburnham I found an obituary and added a memorial for a Miss Lela Blanche Dempsey but her parents were William and Delia (Lereau) McDonald. It mentioned 4 brothers and I see you have a memorial for Herbert and called him uncle. I am assuming Lela's Dempsey name is an adopted name. Hoping you know more about her. Would you like a transfer? She is also buried in Calvary Cemetery in Winchendon Memorial # 154444872.
Elmer David LaBrack Elmer David LaBrack was my Great-Uncle, my Great Grandfather's half brother; he was originally born as Archie Elmer LaBrack 29 June 1889 in South Ashburnham, MA. According to the Ashburnham birth records, his name was corrected to Elmer David LaBrack on 10 August 1945, although he had been using it for many years prior to the 'official' change. If you could make a note of it in the 'notes' section it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ... R-
