Hi People,

The person (Ryan) doing the photographing in Crystal Lake Cemetery in Gardner has been taking many photos lately and adding memorials as he goes. He's picking up many of the ~800 or so I did not create back in February due to lack of information. He's also correcting some of the memorials I made and adding new links where necessary so lots of headway is being made.


If you do not wish to have a memorial online for your relative then let me know and I will delete it.

I have not cleaned the stones so you might come across a photo of one of your relative's stones and think, "what a mess". If you would like a better picture posted then I can go out and retake it no problem and do a little clearing away of dirt and weeds to boot. I just figured I could get all the photos done in a more timely manner and then make a better effort on the ones people actually are interested in seeing.

I have determined the genealogy of most of the original settlers (see my website below). Some are stubbornly evasive. Most of these people are buried in the Old Burial Ground while a few are in Green Bower and Crystal Lake Cemeteries. I have also traced the lineages of their progeny as far as the early 1900s and sometimes further.

I am not originally from this town and so I would be glad to transfer the memorials if you want them. As always, feel free to download any photo I've taken and I'd be glad to do some searching in my area if you can't do it yourself.

'Nuff said. Ed

Thanks for getting back with me so quickly and for the link to the City of Gardner website. I should have looked there myself. Hope you have a great summer and thanks for all of your work putting Gardner on the find-a-grave map.

I'm researching this lady who is the daughter of Coleman relative. I've been unable to find anything to indicate when she died. Will you share with me where you found the year of her death? Thanks for the help.

Thank you SO MUCH for your efforts in Crystal Lake Cemetery! It was such a help to find dates and places for several cousins of my husband's on the memorials. Your time and efforts are very much appreciated!

WOW, time for me to take a break. He IS the grandson of this lady I just added I think. Just ignore me. I'm going out for fresh air.

Wish I could delete dumb messages I send.

Sorry Ed.

Sorry, never mind my correction. It was strange, 1930 census index said he was the grandson of Per but the gravestone says son. So disregard.

Thanks Ed,

I sent you some edits too. It's easier for me one at a time. I don't have the patience to make you a nice little list like you always send me. haha.

I'm still adding photos now, I think I snapped 500. The end is in sight.
