Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a family man and web programmer, who has recently assumed the role of family historian from my mother.

I am active on, and I used Findagrave,com to help in my research.

The memorials in Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN (except Charles and Elsie Slocum) are random headstones I photographed while my buddy was taking requested headstones. If you want one transferred to you, just let me know.

The families I'm most interested are in my Virtual Graveyard.

Check out my genealogy blog: Digging Up the Tree.

Are you his family? I see you have many photo requests.

Claude & Dorothy Sherman
I was told at the cemetery office that they were both located in Lot 1 of Sequoia Plot, but there is only a marker for Claude. I think they are in the same grave, and her name was not inscribed on the stone, but I think you would have to call the cemetery to confirm that.

I will be happy to get your photo at Fairmount-Willow Hills Cemetery if you can contact the cemetery for her location. There are well over 100 requests pending right now and I'd like to work on getting the oldest ones done. Thanks so much...

Find A Graves Change
A friend told me about this chance a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent edits to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names / dates / places / plot #s.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section or do linking.

IT SAYS ON THIS MEMORIAL THAT HE DIED ABOUT 1665 not 1650 like you have listed here. birth 1603 not 1600.

Altho he is not my ancestor I have been to this memorial & he is a very important person in the history of RI. I feel that you should change the description to be accurate or remove it completely & let someone else do the correct research
