Bio Photo November 3, 2015 ----

I finished my Gardner and surrounding towns database. It centers on Gardner but I included information on the early residents of Templeton, Winchendon, Westminster, and Ashburnham, Massachusetts garnered from the town histories, censuses, and vital records. It is uploaded to and has over 101,000 individuals.

Thus ends about a 5 year project which had its roots in my initial foray into photographing the stones of Greenbower Cemetery in Gardner.


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) of Gardner MA. 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

Hello Ed,

I attempted to delete the memorial for Sarah Marshfield Miller Foster, but since you created it, I had to fill out some information. We will see how that works.

In researching the memorials for Sarah I noticed we have a duplication with our Thomas Miller 75848334. Technically your/my memorial was created first like with his wife's.

The duplicate is: Lieut Thomas Miller
Created by: M Cooley

The memorial you created has a little more detail but she has the grave site and stone on hers.

This one will be more difficult to resolve since I do not maintain both memorials and this creator has no contact information. Do you have ideas as how you would like me to handle this?

I have added you to my friends. If you are so inclined I would be honored to be added to your friends.

Sarah Marshfield Miller Foster
Hello Ed,

We are probably distant cousins. Thank you for being gracious about the memorial. I wanted your input since you gifted the memorial to me.

Sarah Marshfield Miller Foster
Greetings Ed,

Earlier you transferred Sarah Marshfield Miller Foster's memorial to me. Since that time I also received another transfer of a second memorial of Sarah's 135287602. Since they have more information than you and I generated I feel inclined to delete the memorial you created which is earlier and technically the one that should be kept. If I deleted the one you created, you would need to link Deborah Miller Garrett 75391258 to the new memorial. Please let me know your thoughts on this. I am getting pressure to resolve this...
Kind Regards
