RE: Lydia Peters
After looking at the picture, the year and her age would seem to align. I think it's her.

RE: Lydia Peters
I went back yesterday when there was better light. The inscription on one of the headstones that had been illegible popped out, it is a "Lydia" she is buried with other Whitcombs, but the stone is badly damaged. Looks like a 19th century headstone. I can load that up if you like. The one part of the inscription that is clear says "also an infant". Did Lydia die in childbirth?

Louis Spenger
He is listed in error. Look closely . The name is Sprenger, not Spenger.

RE: Costello
Golly, I don't know what else to say. But thank you for trying. Maybe I have the wrong cemetery. It looks like it. Thank you so much for your help. Carol

Fredrick and Berniece Bawden
We do have memorials for Frederick and Berniece but did not have the cemetery. I have added the
"Chapel of the Chimes Memorial Park (6636)
Alameda County" to their memorials so you can add the photos. Do you want me request a photo on the memorials.

Frederick and Josephine Bawden
Thank you very much for looking for the markers for my aunt and uncle. It seems I had them in the wrong place. They are in the Chapel of Chimes Columbarium and Mausoleum in Oakland. So I do appreciate your help and will be submitting a new request. Thanks so much for letting me know.

RE: Nathan Whitcomb
Hi Irene, It shows Nathan Whitcomb in text but not linked to his memorial. I contacted the person who manages Col. Carter Whitcomb's memorial and asked them to add two links to his mother and father's memorials. I know quite a bit about these people, I've studied their lives for several years now. Of the hundreds of families I've studied, I think they without a doubt the most dynamic and interesting family I've ever studied. My 3rd great grandfather was a well known local businessman in Swanzey. He and his wife raised a family of highly educated and motivated individuals, all of whom led fascinating lives. Two of his sons went to California in 1848, one of them striking it rich in the Sierras. The other wrote back to his sister about their adventures, his letters reside at the Huntington Library Annex in San Marino, California and are considered to be the best contemporary accounts of camp life in the Gold Country at the beginning of the Gold Rush. My great great grandfather, Carter Whitcomb, Jr. moved to Worcester, Ma as a young man and grew to be a successful businessman producing machining tools and lathes. His sister, Lucy stayed in Swanzey, married her childhood sweetheart. When she died she created a convalescent home in Swanzey which still exists to this day.
Irene, I'm sorry for the confusion. I'm still a newbie at this website. I'd like to flesh out the information on my family members. Hopefully, in the future, when I have time, I may be in touch!
