Bio and Links
I'm a 6th generation Oregonian. Currently live near Houston. Family History researcher since I was 13. My grandpa told us we were related to Queen Victoria and that hooked me in. However, that was a good family story only!
Social History is a passion of mine. Tromping through cemeteries, digging in the dirt for arrowheads, old photos, etc. I'm just hooked!

Matilda S Bugbee in Moulton Hill Cemetery, Moulton MA
It was kind of you to leave a flower and a note on the page for this individual. It is indeed a very sad event when a child dies and it is nice that they are remembered. I just find it unsettling that you speculate that she died of child abuse when there is no conclusive evidence that I was able to find. I do know that her parents Parker Bugbee Sr. and his wife Lavinia (nee: Bradway) did have 12 children that I could document over a 24 year span and 6 or 7 of them died in infancy or childhood. (The remaining all seemed to live to appreciably old age, 50 - 99 yrs). There are gravestones for most of these children so presumably their parents thought it important enough to remember them in that way. Childhood mortality rates were unfortunately high during this time period so I think it is impossible to conclude exactly why these children did not survive. If you know of any source materials relating to their deaths or if there were official accusations or charges brought against their parents, I would be interested to know of it. As I said, I am glad that you left a token of appreciation for little Matilda S Bugbee, I just find it kind of inappropriate that you speculatively accuse my ancestors of child abuse without any real proof. - Allison

Eleanor Davis
There are 80 DAVIS buried in Lone Fir cemetery. Three of them are buried in Section 28. Cora #58242224 and George #58242099. Neither are within 50-60 feet of Eleanor. Amelia Davis #58242152 is approximately the same distance away, across the road in Lot 26.

Hi Joyce,
I dont remember where the grave for Langley Dickinson was, it was either requested or one that for some reason I felt the need to record, I have not personally walked it in a few yrs BUT the sexton for that cemetery is wonderful and if you have a list of names he will look up and give you the lots for them, he has spent some serious time doing lookups for find a grave for me :)

and I could be way off but I have a feeling he was on the east side of the road way back in the north east corner area on the hill

If there are other graves you are looking for feel free to send me a note with them included and I can call and maybe get down there (love that cemetery!)or you can request them on the cemetery page

Sewell Hamilton 76251996
Hi! You wrote me about this time last year regarding Sewell Hamilton. I'm going through old messages, have come across yours, and can't find that I ever replied. I have Sewell born in Minnesota, and you questioned that, proposing Massachusetts as his birthplace. I do want the memorial to be accurate. I have his birth in Minnesota from the 1880 Census of Hubbarston, Worcester, MA, which lists the four eldest children of his parents as all born in Minnesota and the younger two born in Massachusetts. If you know this to be an error, please let me know. Thanks--and my apologies for the delay if I hadn't answered previously or for the duplication if we've already discussed this! :-)

Hello Joyce - I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that you have created a duplicate memorial for Ella Woodford. I thought you might like to know.

Thanks, Crystal

Ludlow Maxwell & Delilah Marshall
Hi Joyce,

I saw where you had posted flowers on my great-grandmother Calla Jane Maxwell Furnish memorial that we share the same great-grandparents. Ludlow Maxwell and Delilah Marshall are my great-great-grandparents. Who are you related to in this family line? I would love to learn more about them.

Your distant cousin from Texas, Dixie

RE: Wilson Cemetery
Hello Joyce,

Very happy to meet you.

Would love more info so I can add you to my tree, if that is ok with you.

Your question:
Where did you get that picture of the fieldstone/headstones?

I am not 100% sure what memorial you are asking about, maybe you could post the Memorial number.

I have a cousin .. well my Husbands cousin who has helped me with the Wilson name. With information provided by him I made memorials and was able to add to existing pages.

This webpage:

Has information... I can't remember where I got the Wilson Memorial. And a lot of the pics are provided by of course other wonderful Find A Grave members.

Look forward to sharing with you.

cousin Robin.
