Bio Photo February 9, 2015

Hi People,

I haven't been adding too much lately but the photographing done by Ryan in Crystal Lake Cemetery in Gardner continues. I am fixing things as he and others find corrections for my memorials.

My Gardner database keeps growing and it's up to nearly 91,000 people. The currently uploaded file on has 76,000 people. I am adding in data from the surrounding towns. I finished Westminster and Ashburnham and am currently working on Winchendon.


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

Aurelia S. (Barstow) Coleman
Will you tell me what led you to the conclusion Aurelia died in 1952? Previously I had estimated that she died about 1933 because she was listed in the 1932 Brookline city directory, but not the 1934 edition. Was there a gravestone for her? Thanks for your help.

You are correct on this Ed, thank you.
Do you agree that Jean Royer and John Riggie Sr. are the same individual and that Victorie Gingras would be the proper spouse and mother for Lewis Riggie?
My wife Mary Louise Dwyer(131904143) is burred in Island Pond, Vt and he questions relatives told me about the Royer/Riggie name change.
I have been in contact with Bev L. a few times in the last 3 weeks and she has been very helpful. I will be traveling to Vermont and New Hampshire in June for 2 or 3 weeks to put some grave maker pictures with my many Dwyer/Riggie in-laws. Would you please send me a short email to me and allow me to email you to ask some questions if I hit a brick wall. It would be more convenient.
Many Thanks

Roy George Allen parents

I noticed on the entry for Roy George Allen you list his father as George Allen. Can you provide the source of this? I'm trying to trace my lineage back and cannot seem to find anything at all about Roy's father aside from the name.

RE: Ebenezer Bigelows
Yes, I stumbled on that site, but didn't linger. I didn't want to join. Find a Grave and transcribing the local news paper archives keeps me very busy. Thank you again. Sandi

RE: Ebenezer Bigelows
Thank you for your reply. I didn't see that on the web page...I did do some snooping on Ancestry and down from the Ebeneezer you built a memorial for, my ancestor. And Ebeneezer jr. and III did not live in Vermont either. Very interesting.
