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

RE: Edna May Rash [123453756]
Sometimes when I have a hard time finding someone that I pretty much know should be born in Gardner, I assume it's probably a spelling issue with the index on So I do a search for no name and just gardner and the year I am looking for and I physically go thru them and find the date and low and behold, Edna was in the 1902 gardner births under Edna Mary Nordma. So she was not adopted. Thanks for getting back to me.

I'm finally making some headway on Crystal Lake. Like 1 1/2 big islands and maybe the back row behind the garage. Can't remember if I got all them.

Karen D. Wall Phillips
Merle M. Phillips is linked to Karen D. Wall Phillips as a spouse, however, Merle was Karen's mother in law.
David P. Phillips Karen's husband died 8/7/2014. I have asked for a photo of the gravesite from a volunteer hoping they were buried together.
I am a personal friend of David's and know this information to be true.
Thank you for correcting it...

RE: Fisher family information
Thank you, Ed. I'm rather new to find a grave so this is good information for me. As you know, I thought calculated inferred that it wasn't a certain relationship. Now I know!

RE: Fisher family information
I thought the asterix was associated with the note "calculated relationship" ?

RE: Fisher family information
I don't know where she is buried. I did speak with her son, David, and he knew all of the other siblings you have posted so you can removed the asterix. It is no longer conjecture, it is reality. By the way, you can not that the first child, the son Adna was known as Bud. He had epilepsy and died of a heart attack at David and Myrtle's home.
