|Bio and Links|
|I'm a middle school English teacher that spends "spare" time conducting genealogical research. I have spent lots of time in the Forest Hill and Laurel Hill cemeteries, but recently focused most of my efforts at St. Bernard's and St. Joseph's. |
Please feel free to use photos that I take for whatever purpose you choose. However, any and all photos must include proper source information in the citation. This allows other researchers to maintain the integrity of the research process.
I often have additional and/or higher quality images, and sometimes additional information, for many of the memorials. Please contact me if interested.
Please note that although I strive to take the best possible quality photos, I occasionally upload pictures that I plan to replace in the future.
I generally create memorials with the same spelling used on the marker, when one exists. Additional information, such as names of parents, also utilize information/spelling as seen on the primary sources.
Several gravestones at Laurel Hill no longer stand where they were first erected. Several factors, including erosion and vandalism, have led to these stones being placed in seemingly random locations. I try to document both where these stones are now, and where they should be.

|Adrienne Archer||THANK YOU!!!!|
I am in tears right now. I've just returned from a long weekend with my children to find your wonderful gift in my mailbox! Thank you so much for finding my GREAT-Grandparents headstone. There are so many mysteries surrounding the two, that I am so happy for this small piece of the puzzle!
Have a fantastic Memorial Day!
Hello Bill, thank you for fulfilling my photo request.

Thank you so very much for taking the photo of John Keating's monument. I am having a devil of a time tracking down a James Timothy Keating, and he might be from around that area (or he may have just been lying, as usual lol). Every bit of the puzzle helps!

|Shan Clark||Kezia and Warren Haskell|
I have recently taken photos in a local cemetery and added memorials for Kezia Haskell #159781917 and her son Warren #159781918. Then I found the memorials you have for them in Laurel Hill in MA. There is no photo of the headstones in Laurel Hill. Can you let me know about the family monument, maybe add photos so I will know if mine are the actual burials or cenotaphs? Many thanks.
