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.

since you are related to her, I transferred her memorial to you. We only created it because she was absent from the database.

Hi Bob,

I posted the obituary you sent me but I removed the names of the living survivors.

Have a great summer!

RE: John Chadwick - West Boxford MA
This is my husband's direct line. I would really like to have the obits, but don't want to step on anyone's toes. Would you email them to me, and mind if they were posted to ancestry? I may have another way to get them on F-A-G as well...

Thanks again for your contributions!

Thanks so much for your efforts!
I think it is very helpful to have photos of the surrounding area to help others find a gravesite.

Hi, Have you been getting any of the edits I have sent to that graver BL? I'll take a look at transfers and will take another look at Luella. Thanks.
