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 father 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.

Nahum Cole Reed
Thank you for sending the information on him. Specifically his parents names. With this I was able to find his actual birth date. I looked in Acton first and was unable to find him there. I then looked in the Littleton records and there he was.

pg 301
Nahum Cole Reed, b. March 1, 1838, s. Joseph P. and Ruth, farmer.

The Littleton Vital Records are kind of a pain online, however, if you would like me to send you a link to them I can. I just wanted to let you know I was changing his birth location to Littleton instead of Acton. So when you saw it you would know why.

Samuel Roberts # 40908812
I visited the Old settlers cemetery in Dover to visit the grave of my ancestor Gov. Thomas Roberts. Samuel was in the same cemetery. I did not visit any other cemeteries in Dover so I am 100 percent sure my picture and memorial are in the correct cemetery. Pine Hill looks like a huge place and if someone visited both places I can see how they might get confused. It happens. If you are looking for Samuel I assure you he is in Old Settlers! I will try to notify the creator of the duplicate memorial. Thanks for watching our for us!

Ruth Cram
I see tat you are honored to transfer records of realitives to others but not our grandmother to me. No, that you mess all up and make me have to fight for. I will tell you that Ruth's son is getting very upset that you refuse to transfer his mother's memorial to me. Especially since you were obit hopping and had posted her memorial before we even had her in the ground.

RE: Flint Memorials
William Allen Flint is my 2nd great grandfather. I have a database of family information on and only recently became aware of findagrave after a distant cousin had posted information on my more imediate family. I decided to share photo's that I had of William and his wife Mary Farley and some of their descendants. In adding the information I learned it was a good idea to check information iscribed on the gravestones since sometimes most available information is not always the most accurate.

From my information on I have been able to make a number of links of various family members that have been posted on findagrave. Currently I must have over 140,000 names on Findagrave in a number of cases has given me much information that I did not already have.

Albert Martin
Hello, I just saw the info on Albert Martin and was just wondering how you got the sir name of his mother? The Martins are quite a mystery. Some of Alberts siblings thought her Sir name was Machado and the other half thinks it is Marshall. I do have some where a record that says his moms mother was a Jaquino. I hope to here from you....Thanks, Monique

RE: Re: Ruth Staniels Cram and Belle Healey Staniels
Thank you for trying to put Belle Staniels in the correct cemetery, but it still is not linked to the correct Belle Staniels that already exists. Could you please just transfer Ruth Staniels Cram's site to me to manage. This is my husband's grandmother and I would like to keep her page under the family control as she meant quite a bit to all of us. Thank you.

Here is the instructions for transfer:
How do I transfer a memorial that I manage to another contributor or to Find A Grave to manage and update?
You must be logged in, and you must manage the memorial you are going to transfer. You will also need the other contributor's Contributor ID #. It is next to their name on their contributor page if they did not provide it. If you are transferring the memorial to Find A Grave to manage, the contributor ID # is 8. (If you would like to transfer all of the memorials you have added to a particular cemetery to Find A Grave to manage, please send us an email with your contributor ID # and a link to the cemetery involved, and we can transfer your memorials to Find A Grave for you all at once.)
After you log in, go to the memorial page you are going to transfer. There will be a link on the right side of the memorial page, under the person's name, that says Transfer Management. Click on the link. Add the other contributor's ID # in the box on the Transfer Management of Memorial page that comes up, and click on the transfer this memorial button. NOTE: Once you have transferred the memorial, you will no longer be able to edit or update it.

My contributor # is: 48606068

RE: Re: Ruth Staniels Cram and Belle Healey Staniels
I spoke with Ruth's son so "his grandmother" would be Ruth's mother, Belle Healey. I had only added Belle to the link because it would not let me add Arthur due to the edit that was already submitted. It shouldn't remove the link to her spouse or father, I would think. If you need me to, I could resubmit it with the other two added, though I don't know if it will let me.
