Bio Photo Hi I am Ron Gillespie,

I live in the state of Virginia but I am originally from upper state New York. I am searching for records of both my grandparents on both sides of my family.

My grandmother's name on my mother's side was Francis Lesperance and my grandfather's name on that side was Perrie Lesperance my grandfathers family came from Quebec Canada. Both of these grandparents are in the Notre Dame Cemetery in Ogdensburg New York.

My grandmother's name on my father's side was Afretta Lester and my grandfather's name on that side was William Elbert Gillespie my grandfather's family came from Massachusetts and I believe my grandmother Afretta Lester is in the Rose Hill Memorial Cemetery in Connecticut. My grandfather came from some were in the Quincy Mass area.

Help would be appreciated, as I am having no luck finding anyone on my own.

RE: Hi
Hi Ron

The info I placed on the cemetery record was obtained from the death transcript I received through Massachusetts Document Retrieval Services. The death record shows place of burial Mt Auburn Cem, Cambridge, date of disposition Jan 24, 1986 and undertaker, Keefe, Cambridge.

Ruth Jones, Emma's sister, was the informant. There father was Almon Lester. Do you have more info on the Lester family?

I hope this helps you. Emma was married to my mother's brother, they had one son, Leonard who died in 2007.

Have a great day

RE: Thank you
Your welcome! I'm glad that I was able to help. Also, please note Richard Ashwood is in the New Evens Mills Cemetery not Old Evens Mills Cemetery. By the way I saw another Ashwood headstone right in front of Richards that was also Ashwood, off the top of my head I want to say Sara but can't remember now.
