Bio and Links
My wife and I have been very interested in tracing our family history back as far as we can for a couple of years now. After my grandparents and other relatives have passed away I was given all the pictures from their houses so I have a lot of very old pictures as well as very old family Bibles. My wife, children, and I have traveled all over Maine and into New Hampshire visiting cemeteries and taking pictures of our ancesters. It is a great project and we have learned a lot of interesting facts about our family heritage. Some of the names we have in our immediate pedegree are Hodsdon, Waltz, Kimball, Bowley, Garland, Thyng, Creamer, Leavitt, and Bartlett. Robert and Heidi Hodsdon

Adelbert Hudson
Robert, will you please transfer Adelbert Hudson to me. He is my great grandfather and I would like to keep his record with my family. His record is: 120580085

Thank you,

Maria Parks

PS: I have not forgotten to include you in any information I might find on our family. I will be traveling again next year (Maine/Tennessee) and if I find anything new I will share with you. I have not received any more information from other family members after asking several times.

Rutters in Woodlawn
Hi Robert,

I am just about to fulfill your request for a photo of the marker of Doris Rutter. You will notice that her husband Douglas E's name and dates are also inscribed on the marker.
Next to this marker is another for Reginald S Rutter (probably a brother) & his wife Grace M. McFarland. Nearby is yet another marker with Ralph S Nutter (likely another brother), his wife Bernice H, and daughters Marion L & Geraldine P.

If you want to create memorials for these other Rutters &/or submit photo requests, I will gladly claim them and upload the photos I took. Let me know.

As you will see by the photo I upload to fulfill your request for a photo of the marker of Christian H Thonsen, his parents, Christian & Katherine M and 2 sisters, Katherine A and Ida C, are shown on the marker.

If you would like to submit photo requests for them, I will gladly claim them and upload the photos. Please let me know.

RE: Joseph Maxwell
from Find A Grave help:

What is a cenotaph? How do I have a memorial designated as a cenotaph?

A cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honor of a person or group of persons whose remains are buried elsewhere. It can also be the initial marker for a person who has since been interred elsewhere.
To add a cenotaph, create a memorial just like any other. Then email with a link to the memorial and a message to mark it as a cenotaph.

I will not delete the memorial, but I will ask to have it marked as a cenotaph.

Joseph Maxwell
Robert: the town of Pownal lists Joseph as being buried in the York cemetery. There is a marker there with his name on it. My memorial is not a duplicate and I see no reason to remove it. You are not his only relative. Others may need the information on both memorials.

Esther W. Jones Hodsdon
Esther's death date (according to the Maine Death Record) is 22 Apr 1910, which I found on She also appears in the 1910 US Census which was compiled 21 and 22 April 1910. Esther is my 3rd great grandmother. Thank you so much for maintaining Esther's "Find-A-Grave" website.
