Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found our daughter's memorial here, Kristi CHAGNON, and was surprised, and grateful, that someone took the time to do that. If you'd like to stop by and visit with Kristi , just use this link. She is a wonderful soul. I'm certain she is still here with us.

Now I find strolls through quiet cemeteries to be relaxing -- while hopefully being helpful to someone researching their family. I was never awkward wandering cemeteries, but now I do it with more purpose. It does bring me to a place of peace. It has also taught me a lot of those who have been here ahead of us. I try to keep my camera handy and research names that seem to have no connections so their memorials might be connected here.

My dad was from Canada and my mom from Salem, Mass. (She enjoyed sharing that she went sledding on Gallow's Hill.) Her family was from Ireland. I have lived in New England nearly all of my life and have found neighbors to be friends that I'm able to visit -- even after moving to another community.

I enjoy helping folks to connect with their past. I am thrilled when I get a note of "I wondered where he/she was" or "I didn't know about him/her." So please share with me any thoughts you have.

Also, it is much easier making corrections if you use the appropriate tab on a memorial. I would appreciate if you can do that.

Be safe.

RE: BARNARDs in Goffstown
I will apologize in advance. You may get a lot of edits from me. I am in the process of going through all the burials at Westlawn from a list I have.

Napoleon Joseph Grenon b. 30 Mar 1900
Thank you for the suggestion that the mother of Napoleon Joseph Grenon, b. 30 Mar. 1900 and d. 29 Nov. 1924, was Delia Grenon. I can see where the problem lies. There are two death certificates on the New Hampshire, Death and Disinterment Records, 1754-1947 for Napoleon Grenon, one hand written and one typed, giving differing mothers. The hand written one gives Julia Lacette or Lacotte as his mother, while the typed version gives Delia Grenon. As a second source, I had to go to Napoleon's WWI Draft Registration to originally make sure I had the correct mother. The WWI Draft Registration lists his nearest relative and mother as Mrs. Julia St.Denis, she married second to Herbert St. Denis after her first husband Hormidas Grenon died. I have her as Julia Lacerte, maiden name. Now, there is a Napoleon Grenon, b.c1863 Napoleon's uncle, who is in fact the son of John Baptiste (JB)Grenon and Celina/Delina Rousseau. That could be where the confusion comes in with Delia Grenon being Napoleon's mother.

Again, thank you for your suggestion. Just wanted you to know how appreciated your work and dedication to helping others with their family genealogy truly is.

Frank Williams at San Francisco Columbarium
"I believe this may be my grandmother's (2nd) husband. Is there any way that you could see if he is near Esther (nee Gagne) Williams. (d 1971). I am fairly certain that Frank passed before she did, but am honestly not sure."

The records there at the Columbarium are not in great shape, but you could try to ask the office there. My entries are nearly all from my personal walk through and one that was done in the 1980s, and photos I took, so it's all visual and not necessarily ideal, or any sense complete.

If you can find the funeral home that handled Esther's cremation, that would be a likely place to start tracking, imo. They would have a record, generally, of where or to whom the remains were relayed.

Beautiful photos of Marie Esther!

Best of luck and I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.

Thank you for the info I have added to my Grandfather's Memorial. With the obituary on my Mother's page (posted by the previous maintainer) we didn't think to fill in dates right away.
This has been done and it makes the memorial look more complete.
