Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a graduate of Mount Pleasant High in Providence R.I. I enlisted in Air Force and spent most of my time overseas.I am a Vietnam Vet and spent 10yrs with the Air National Guard.I retired after 40yrs with Pratt & Whitney as a jet engine inspector and the last 10yrs as an FAA inspector for the company.I have been researching my family tree as a hobby.I walk a lot of historical cemeteries looking for my ancestors final resting place.I take a lot of photos and clean up some plots of the family when I find them.My mothers side of family (Whitford)dates back to the 1600's.They are called swamp yankees around here.I have many historical cemeteries located a short distance from my house.I recently became involved with Pocasset cemetery in Cranston.I only live 2 miles from their.I do a lot of cleaning of grave sites and take photos as I go.I started a page on facebook for the cemetery if anyone is interested.I use ancestry.com for the info I enter on the bios.If you find a error please send me a note and I will correct it.
News flash:As a result of all my work at this cemetery they have put me on as a board member.I will try and fill out more photo request when I figure out the filing system which is very old.
I have started another task at this cemetery: I am posting all the burial cards on F.A.G. so expect a lot of edits. I am doing it alphabetically so I do not know when I will be done. This way I capture all the single plots with only a small numbered stone. I will not be taking photos of small stones because they are basically all the same except for the number but you will have the location.
Another reminder on photo request. Sometimes their is no marker for the grave only an empty plot. Sometimes the stone is overturned on the inscription and to heavy to flip over. Other times it is a flat marker that gets buried over time.

RE: Hannah E Doherty Greenhalgh
At the 1880 United States Federal Census

Ann should be Hannah in 3 places.

I don't know how to get them to change it.

Hannah E Doherty Greenhalgh
Thank you George for posting.

Hannah is my Great Grandmother. She died 10 years before I showed up so I never knew her.

You have included so much information I am overwhelmed.

Thank you George for posting Mary's burial in the Boss lot. I'm still trying to connect her to my family and I will, but it takes time.

Thanks George! I was hoping the stone would give us a parental clue.

Gladys (Tefft) Sheldon (91417798)
The 1930 census which you have on Gladys (Tefft) Sheldon's page does not belong to her. That record probably belongs to Gladys Marriott Sheldon, buried in Moshassuck Cemetery in Central Falls (125299821). Gladys (Tefft) Sheldon was living alone in Providence in 1930 and listed as Gladys Tefft. She remained single until 1966 when she married Arthur Noyes Sheldon (26872688), a Providence engineer and architect for whom she had worked as a secretary for many years. His first wife had died a few years before. I knew her well. She was my great-grandmother's youngest sister and was close in age to my grandmother. Because she had no children of her own, she was always very close to my grandmother's family.
