Bio Photo September 21, 2014

Hi People,

I haven't been adding too much lately but the photographing done by Ryan in Crystal Lake Cemetery in Gardner continues. He's finding my errors and I'm continuously correcting them although most tend to be more along the lines of the stone giving more information like a full date or someone's title. Good to see I haven't screwed up too badly. My Gardner database keeps growing and it's up to nearly 76,000 people. The currently uploaded file is a paltry 71,000 people. I just finished going through the 1900 census so I'll upload the new file to Ancestry.com soon and backtrack a bit to review the 1880 census. I am correcting and refining the various trees all of the time as I come across new information.

--------------------------------------------

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

Eleazer Clark
Hello Ed,
You posted the memorial for Eleazer Clark and his second wife in Gardner. You also note that he is enumerated with his first wife in Detroit (1870). and later Cornville Maine (1880). In 1870 he is living with Ezra H and Abigail (Clark) Dawes. Abigail (b. VT or NH) was a widow when she married Ezra and I don't know her maiden name. Very likely she was related to Eleazer but I don't know how. Do you?
Many thanks
Tom Frank

Laura Eves Bosworth
Ed,
Quite by accident I came across 2 memorial pages for this individual today on findagrave. One you created, and one was created by James
Bianco, memorial #135593228. The thing I find distressing is you list her burial at Winchendon and he lists her burial at Royalston. Perhaps the two of you can work together to confirm where Laura is buried? My interest is that two of her daughters married Coleman's, so I want to be sure I have her "planted" in the righ town. Thanks for the help.

Otto Z Hendrickson
born: 13 Nov 1886 or 1887 in Lappfjard, Finland
died: 18 Mar 1979 - Buried in Holly Hill (Volusia County, Florida)

Otto first married Rose Emma Pelletier (1899-1946). (They had one child - Pauline Mary Hendrickson.)
Then he married Ethel Manola (Lloyd) Warner (1891-1988).

I'm happy to share anything I've turned up in my own family research. My mom's whole family is from Gardner, although they don't go that far back, having arrived in Gardner from Finland in the late 1800s/early 1900s.

Thanks again!
I so appreciate all the work that you've done. I don't know if I'm bothering or helping (I hope it's helping!) when I give you new information/corrections, but I have one - Ethel Hendrickson (born 1891, no death date, assumed to be wife of Otto) is someone I'm still looking for, but I do know for sure that Otto Z Hendrickson (Ethel's husband) is buried in Volusia County, Florida.

Thanks!

Hi Ed,

Aunt Joan was my Uncles first wife. I don't know much about her family. But I will get you contact information for on of my cousins who might be able to help you with the information.

Thanks,

Star

Hi. Am a descendant of Joseph Poulin, here:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=76265751&ref=acom

Is that a link to the actual cemetery? Are there tombstones?

I'm never sure on those tragic stories either. They are really case by case, aren't they. We are in agreement on this one. Thanks, again.

RE: Mary (Cobleigh) Newton
Ed,
Sorry about my previous message, I didn't have my thinking cap on yet. The Mary listed on the Gardner Cemetery Commission website died 1875, as I mentioned, so couldn't have been Mary C. Newton who died in 1892. So you may be right: Mary C may not be buried there. Perhaps I should write to the Commission and ask for clarification?
