Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in Massachusetts for all my life (so far), except for college - in Newton for about 20 years, and Newburyport for just over 40 years.

I am relatively new at taking gravestone pictures but I'm getting the hang of it.

I have a family tree on Ancestry.Com which led me to Find A Grave. It has helped locate relatives and a special moment was Feb 2011 when someone in New York added a memorial for my great great grandfather, Harlow Martin Purple. We didn't even know where he was laid to rest.

That has given me a new outlook on Find A Grave and is why I'm willing to do photo requests and have added many memorials for people I don't even know.

Sorry, that should be Robert and Harriet's daughter, Sarah, not "Robert and Sarah." Laney

McGlew Family
Well OK. I do not do much on them but I am related so it makes sense I guess. Whatever you think is best. Thanks for all your work in Find a Grave. It is such a huge help. Laurel

RE: Jenness - Perry connection
Yes I'm a descendant of Francis Jenness, who settled in the Rye/Portsmouth area in the late 17th century. The Perrys that I have so far in my tree are scattered and don't seem connected to those in the High St. Cemetery. I'm curious about Walter J. Perry Sr., though, was he born in another state, not NH?

Thank you so much for taking the photo of her memorial for me. She is my 6th great grandmother. Great to see a copy of her stone.

Sarah Elmore Gove
Any idea if her parents, Jonathan Gove 1810-1890 and Elizabeth Dow Gove 1816-1870 were near her grave?
