|Bio and Links|
I started researching my family roots about ten years ago with the many avenues now open with online searches it opened a whole new world to me. Living in Alaska many of the records were not obtainable by me unless I traveled to the different states and countries.|
I have been able to connect with family in America, Canada and Scotland. What a amazing trip it has been finding pictures of family members when they were children I never knew about.
Some of my family had taken pictures of head stones but they did not turn out. I requested pictures of some of them and there they were with in a week. I have found this to be a wonderful tool to have and bring my family closer to me.

True. That's why this is "Find a grave," not "Fix a grave" (cemetery records). *grin*
|Watersprout||RE: William Blinkhorn|
You are welcome! The woman who requested this photo believes he is a relative named Wilbur Blenkhorn. I sent you a message about it in the "Edit" tab for Wm Blinkhorn.
|Laurie Kearney||RE: John Leslie Preston|
Yes, I think John is in Vine Lake too. Its a HUGE cemetery!
As for me, I worked at the Captain Bartlett in the early 80s. My dad was the manager there, and got us (my brother & a few college friends) great summer jobs! I loved Alaska! I even looked into getting certified in elementary ed, but that ment a trip to Juneau....not an easy access city. So I wasn't willing to spend my money on a giant maybe. So I stayed in Mass.
|Laurie Kearney||John Leslie Preston|
I do not think John Leslie Preston is buried at Pine
Grove Cemetery in Norfolk, Mass. That cemetery is for unclaimed prisoners from MCI Walpole (now calle Cedar Junction) and Norfolk prisons. I believe he would have been buried in Medfield, Mass at Vine Lake Cemetery.
(PS...I used to work at the Capt. Bartlett Inn!)

Wow! 2 in just 1906. Odd. Well mine was definitely a George Arthur, so it's not George M. Thank you, Jo

Yes, Trish, that's the one. Interesting! I'm going to do more searching into it. I wonder if someone has a wrong date, or if there was another George Lincoln?
Would you be sure to erase that one message I sent with my email address -- title "George again". I don't want it on here for long. I get mass spam when it's too available. Signing off for the evening.
Thanks for searching it for me.

|Jo W G||George A. Lincoln|
thanks for all the work Trish! Very exciting to see all of it. I just spoke to a family member who said they remember seeing something about him in their Mom's stuff long ago. Who knows what all we'll find. Thank you! (and I appreciate the transfer too). Jo

|Jo W G||George A. Lincoln edit request|
Sure Trish. If he's no relation I'll take over his memorial page. Thank you. I stated he is the son of George F. and Abbie, but I'm mixing generations in my statement. He's the 3rd child of the 4 Illinois born, of the George F. and Ella Pettingill Lincoln family. Sorry.
Is the yellow flag for a mining accident death a standard for cemeteries? . . . or a local thing in Fairbanks? I'm so glad you made that note about it or I wouldn't have known.
I appreciate what you've done. Thanks, Jo
